GamesRadar: The Top 7... new games that you already played

"There are no new ideas. There are only new ways of making them felt."
- Audre Lorde, a poet who wasn't the first person to have this idea

The idea that there are no new ideas isn't a new idea at all. In fact, it's a pretty old one, and its veracity can be seen in the games industry too.

I disagree, the demo does that game injustice.

It's nothing stellar, it's good, but the demo makes it look like just another platformer which it quickly turns out to not be after you start world 3.

I don't get it. The title is "new games that you already played" and on ME they list movies. I watch movies, not play. And I have never done parkour.
