More on Shovel Knight

People are talking about making Shovel Knight "Game of the Year" now.  That would be like awarding the Oscar for Best Picture to a clever Taco Bell commercial.  In people's desire to praise a fun retro game, they're going way too far.  They want to stick it the the big publishers and their fancy AAA games, but let's not go crazy here.  I honestly don't care whether Shovel Knight is going to be released for the XBox Ine.  Even if it's $10, I'd rather spend the money on DLC cars in Forza 5 or about a dozen other games / DLC packs.  I really don't understand this enthusiasm for a game that looks and sounds 25 years old.
