1UP's Favorite Games of 2012: Fez

1up.com: Maybe the whole "fake retro" thing is played out by now, but I was willing to give Fez a shot anyway. For one thing, it was one of the first games of that style to make its way into the public. Its grueling development cycle (see "Indie Game: The Movie") spanned years, and that time allowed plenty of other projects developed in the same vein to deplete a once-fallow field. But just because we've seen a ton of mediocre games that disguise their lack of quality with kitschy old-school graphics over the past few years doesn't mean I can't enjoy a sincerely good game with a similar style. (Fez, Xbox 360)
