Why Spelunky Should Be Game of the Year

Kotaku - On the surface, Spelunky is a roguelike platformer where you become like Indiana Jones, going farther and farther inside ancient caves holding untold riches and perhaps even lost civilizations. You have some rope, some bombs, a whip and whatever else you find along the way. It's a difficult game, and you will die a ton. But death is also a tool in your arsenal: eventually, you'll have a repertoire of mistakes that help guide your future spelunkers to make better decisions. (PC, Spelunky)

I've been playing this game for years (the PC version, at least). Everyone should try it.

Super Meat Boy difficulty combined with a huge, randomly generated dungeon. What more could you ask for?
