It's only going to get better from here on. I mean, look at From Dust - that game looks amazing.

Yeah, I just bought Flower yesterday. I went and got me a cold one, and launched the game. And wow, probably the most relaxing gaming experience I've had in years.

Your comment reminds me of something.

Where the fuck is Shadow Complex. It kicks the arses of every game on this list

none of those games are overly original, and this list seems to have focused more on original ideas and new concepts rather then maybe top quality games

TheLastGuardian3216d ago

looks like you had one too many cupcakes lol.

cayal3216d ago

Cueil3216d ago
