DoFuss says: "Digital distribution is spreading its wings still further and continues to branch into the console market. The lower production cost and longer tail on game sales make it a attractive prospect for small developers who may be unable to find a publisher or who don't want to risk releasing their games in direct competition with 'triple A' boxed titles.
It is hard to select one of these titles from all of those released this year. There were classics with face lifts, retro-revivals and innovative new games on each platform and all of them helped establish the downloadable space as a viable alternative for developers. In choosing one game I feel like I am turning my back on numerous others which I enjoyed and continue to play. Street Fighter 2 HD Remix, Mega Man 9, 1942, Bionic Commando (that's four Capcom titles), Pixel Junk Eden, Castle Crashers, Geometry Wars 2, Rez HD, Braid all titles worth of note, fantastic gaming experiences at a bargain price."
