France: Eiji Aonuma named Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters

For Eiji Aonuma and the rest of the dev team behind The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, it has been a very busy year. The game was finally released on the Nintendo Switch, so it’s only a matter of time before the arrival of the gaming awards season will result in the game winning some awards.

However, Eiji Aomuna has already received some recognition this year that may surprise you. You see, in Frrance, Eiji Aomuna has been named Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters. For all intents and purposes, Aonuma is now a knight. It is actually very common for France to knight non-French people. For example, Shigeru Miyamoto is also a part of the order of the Knights of Arts and Letters in France

  1. Sorry, I can’t stand reading any article by ssf1991. The amount of fluff added every time is annoying. I don’t know if it’s written by AI or what but it always follows the same exact format. The 1st paragraph is some intro or backstory that really doesn’t need to be there most of the time. The 2nd paragraph is almost always “Well, …” On the rare occasion that it’s not, it’s always “You see, …” or “However, …” or “For example,” or something similar. Almost every sentence has extra words for no reason. In this article alone, 4 of the 5 sentences start with “However,” “You see,” “For all intents and purposes,” and “For example,” This is the rare occasion they omitted the “Well,” but some articles combine every single one of these examples.

    I get that word count matters for SEO but we don’t need a backstory and intro and all that or any fluff words to make sentences longer. Just state the facts and get on with it. I tried to ignore it for months but it’s at the point where I usually skip any article they write now. I think I’ve only ever counted a couple articles where miraculously they don’t use fluff but it’s usually because it’s a press releases by Nintendo.

    I hate to be that guy but please, enough with the fluff. It’s like a 90-year-old man telling a story and you just wait and wait for him to get on with it. I dunno, maybe it’s just me, but once you realize it, it’s so hard to ignore. I’m one reader so take it with a grain of salt and I really don’t mean to offend the author but they have to be aware of it. Maybe English is their 2nd language or something and they feel the need to start sentences that way, but you really don’t. Is it the end of the world? No, but when you’re just trying to get all the news real quick, it’s very frustrating reading through fluff.

      1. ok boomer guy is a manchild

        for some reason I always suspected that the “ok boomer” manchild is donnie, he always say that to any person who dare to criticize sonic…coincidence?

    1. @Well well well

      I’m afraid that’s journalism at it’s best, and that’s pretty much their job, and what they are paid to do. I’ve never read a news article, from a different website, or from any popular newspaper website that’s been any different. It not his fault or anyone else’s. They have to cover background stories, as well as possible future events, even if the written article is titled to a certain subject matter, at the end of the day it’s good journalism 👍

    2. This style of writing was developed as when ever people see news summed up in a single line, it screams “not very important, can be skipped”. But now we live in an age people prefer to be spoon fed throw away content that is over with quickly and is forgotten just as fast.
