Pixelitis Picks: The most satisfying powerups

"We play games for a number of reasons, but wouldn’t you agree that one of those is to give you the ability to assume the identity of someone with the strength of a thousand humans?

Whether we’re rapidly slicing up an enemy in the middle of a furious Limit Break, or charging up a mega-buster to unleash on an unsuspecting feeble robot, games likes to give players a very satisfying sense of attaining some sort of euphoric power or ability that produces incredibly satisfying (and often very destructive) results onscreen.

Allow us to share with you some of those pleasureful abilities."
