I've spent hundreds upon thousands of hours playing and writing about games over the past few years, and it can be easy to slip into a rut and just go through the motions - play game, beat game, complain about game, start next game. Every so often, though, a video game comes along that is so unbelievable that it reinvents the whole hobby/job for me. The last such game was the Sony PSP classic Patapon. It was so much fun, so original and so addictive that it dragged a perfect 100/100 score out of me. It's been a few years since then, and a new game has managed to leave me with the same awestruck joy I experienced when I tapped out my first pata-pata-pata-pon. That game is Atlus' action RPG Demon's Souls. This adventure is hands-down the very best game I've played in quite some time and barring some unseen contender, it gets my vote for game of the year 2009. I'll do my best, but I'm not sure the written word can do justice to just how amazing this game is. And no, I'm not even exaggerating. Not even close."
