I dunno. It's N4G dude. If you don;t have a PC or PS3 you probably never played it I guess. But if you are a 360 gamer, you should look out for TRINE 2, cuase it look incredible.

Kirby's epic yarn
(love it or hate it, it's still a great game!) :)

Hard Corps Uprising should be there. CONTRA HELLO!

It's ironic it should mention LittleBigPlanet 2 and Limbo because someone recreated a superior version of Limbo on LittleBigPlanet 2

I would have given the nod to Mega Man 10 over Mega Man 9. 10 is more fair, better rounded, and has more memorable music. At least, from my perspective.

Super Meat Boy is my number 1. 42hrs and counting of gameplay for £6.99- Amazing game.
