This year I spent more on books to study than playing games. So don't expect much variety: [b]Mass Effect 2 (my best 360 game)[/b] is a given, although I find the whole story too childish and stupid (too "human perspective oriented"). The worlds and races are very well pace and descripted, the main characters are simple but still interesting and not boring. I don't dig the shooter approach too much but the "rpg" factor is still present and add more to the game and the fights themselves. [b]Donkey Kong Country Returns (my best Wii game)[/b] is very addictive and challenging. Sure it has not the appeal of the originals (not has rendered graphics nor the ambient soundtrack, most of characters disappeared) but is funny, silly and you have to learn how to take advantage of abilities and situations like in the 16-bit era. So, this over Mario Galaxy? Yes, more old-school oriented, more fun to me. The REAL 2D platforming beats 3D instantly. MG2 is a great game too, but I had to choose one. [b]Scott Pilgrim vs The World (my best dd game)[/b] is a tribute to 80s and early 90s youth. Music, quotes, graphics: all screams MY TEEN YEARS, and it's very moving and fun at the same time. The game per se is not bad, not outstanding, there are better games released this year on digital delivery services, but for me Scott Pilgrim has something special. [b]Blaz Blue: Continuum Shift (my best PS3 game)[/b] Ok, it's not an exclusive but I find more interesting playing it online without paying a cent. This improves BB in every part and adds more complexity (a bit too much maybe?). The caracter design is good ONLY in-game, we have the original art replaced with moe-oriented style, a great lowdonw to me. Other flaws are irrelevant and this game is fun, competitive, hard to master and above all: sprite-based. SSFIV is also a great game (good graphics and characters, very well balanced, awesome music remixes) but not too appealing to me because of the old attitude of the gameplay. Usually I like tribute to old gaming styles, but this compared to BB is less "free in movement". You can't defend during jump, your dash is too slow, you can't cancel every action, the ultra moves are a bit cheap. In some ways I find SSFIV an awesome product (especially compared to Vanilla SFIV), but I'm not into the gameplay and never will because I find it outdated in some aspects.
