So, many games I played and enjoyed this year are retrogames, my list will be outdated as hell. I will try to make it, but I'm not a serious hardcore-whatever anymore. [b]Game of the Year:[/b] [b]KOF XIII[/b] 2D graphics fighter. Modern, fast and polished. Nothing to add. [b]Honorable Mention: Child Of Eden[/b] Loved Rez so much I can't miss this (bought on X360 AND PS3!). The game itself is very good, charming and interesting to play. The general atmosphere and the graphics are good but the music (the real core of the game) is not something I'm into. I like electronic music but Genki Rockets is too pop-oriented to my ears. A customizable soundtrack would have been a better choice. [b]Fighting Game of the Year: KOF XIII[/b] Seriously? [b]Honorable Mention: BlazBlue continuuing adding shi(f)t[/b] Good way to maintain interesting a game, like Capcom does with SF4. The only reedeming factors of BB against SF to me are the more fast-paced action (aerial attacks and guard especially) and the 2D style over the 3D one. [b]RPG of the Year:[/b] Didn't play rpg this year. I bought Vesperia but never opened it. [b]Downloadable Game of the Year: Guardian Heroes[/b] It wins everything hands down. A must buy. [b]Portable Game of the Year: Okamiden[/b] Technically is not from this year (but the english version is). Never tought I enjoy an adventure featuring a little white Shiba Inu, especially when I got bored by the original. [b]Retrogame of the Year (old generations): 16-bit Akumajo Dracula[/b] All of them: IV, Vampire Kiss (Snes), Bloodlines (MD), Chi No Rondo (PCECD). A guide to how o make a perfect action game in many aspects. I'd die for a remastered port of them + Igavanias. [b]Honorable Mention: Parodius Series[/b] Konami again, when they were creative and not relying on two franchises. The SFami versions are even better than arcade originals. [b]Retrogame of the Year (current generation): Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu[/b] Can't play a modern shump unless it's Cave. Daifukkatsu is clever and cruel and not impossibile like other danmaku. [b]Honorable Mention: Kirby's Epic Yarn[/b] Great style, grat graphics. 2D platformer forever. This is for children, sadly, but incredibily well-executed. [b]Most Pleasant Surprise: Sonic Generations[/b] A Sonic game that treat itself and plays like a Sonic game! Finally! Decent graphics, decent gameplay (3D section is a mix between SA2 and Unleashed while 2D stages are worst than MD ones but way better than Dimps ones), excellent music and quite rewarding. An interesting tribute to the whole series and the gamers, not the best Sonic game but probabily the best from 2003. [b]Honorable Mention: Alice Madness Returns[/b] Very interesting ideas, sick visuals and good basis for gameplay. It lacks in many aspects but is one of the few platformers that try to imitate Mario using the opposite theme. [b]Honorable Mention Again: Castlevania Lords Of Shadow[/b] A pleasant game in the same way as it's disappointing: not being so much Castlevanish. On its own it stands as a gothic/medieval God Of War with some exploration and character grinding, stunning backgrounds, tough bosses and stupid quick time events. [b]Game I Wish I Played, but Didn't: A new Darkstalkers, Chrono or Panzer Dragoon[/b] Seriously, the only one that comes to mind is SF3 Third Strike Online Edition. Didn't bought yet. [b]Game I'm Finally Sick Of: Many of the franchises praised as hell nowadays.[/b] This include Call Of Duty, Gears Of War, Uncharted, Zelda, Elder Scrolls, Resident Evil and even some downloadable titles like Braid, Super Meat Boy and Minecraft. Most of these games are carbon copy of other games, if not of themselves.
