LittleBigPlanet - The game starts out as a "Mario"-type platformer in a highly interactive world. But as you play, you collect tools and objects that become the building blocks for designing your own game levels. Not only can you create and share your own game levels online, but you can explore and play endless levels created by others. This game is revolutionary because it greatly expands user-generated content.
