Michael Thomsen, author of IGN’s Contrarian Corner, proposes that The Metroid Prime Trilogy is video gaming’s Citizen Kane. What’s even more impressive, it was a piece for ABC News complete with a Charlie Gibson intro.
In Thomsen’s Contrarian Corner he generally takes a very critical look at a game that becomes a darling of reviewers. Often he provides a unique perspective on a game drowning in praise and sometimes it seems like he’s reaching a bit to make a point. It’s a shame he’s locked behind IGN Insider’s closed doors because whether you agree or not, his reviews are more thought provoking than most.
Watch the video and see if he throws a strike or if he’s just a bit outside. And if you have a game or series that you would nominate for gaming’s Citizen Kane, please share.
