Before I starting putting out titles of different games, I just want to say that this section can get a bit messy that everyone’s tastes are different, so what one think is the best game in the world could mean nothing to another person. Not to mention there are genre differences and accessability of platforms too.
Anyway, currently me and kevin are into pokemon for the nds, so feel free to join in for multiplayer fun.
Not everyone’s cup of tea, and it’s a very old game so don’t expect good graphics out of it:
It’s a fully graphical game but is very heavy on the text feedback. Expect rich descriptions of areas and items to supplement the decent (for the time, that is!) graphics.
The plot is really twisty and hard to predict, the writing in this game is probably the best out of every game that I’ve played, period.
It’s very loosely based on D&D rules, its main link is via the setting (Planescape).
Combat is actually very imbalanced, this is a prime example of a game you would play for the story rather than the gameplay.
Recommended to look at a guide/walkthrough for optimized character building so you can blitz the combat aspect and focus on the interesting story and visuals.
Also has light puzzle elements (you’ll run into a puzzle every so often, sometimes important for progress, but it’s not the main aspect of the game).
Most games are derivative or iterative rather than completely refreshingly new.
One game that is just about anything else of recent memory is “Catherine”. The creators have build the foundations around a fiendishly complex block moving puzzle and then surrounding it with a bizarre yet captivating story.
I think Tearaway, the upcoming PS Vita game from Media Molecule, is a pretty exciting development and something to keep an eye on. The gameplay itself is nothing revolutionary, but the level of interactivity is. Tearaway uses every feature the PS Vita has to offer, and integrates those features completely into the mechanics instead of simply using them as alternate input methods or gimmicks.
