Hardcore Gamer: What a great month! Alright, we're being a bit facetious -- December was a barren wasteland of forgotten downloadable games. There were ports, disappointments and no more than three retail games. Even the indiesphere was lacking, seeming like a dumping ground for mildly anticipated games that turned out to not be all that great. Thankfully, five games emerged as clear winners and -- with the exception of one -- got us to take a break from our next-gen consoles.
