     * firenze: the nighttime Vegas setting is really great. It also includes one of the two maps from each of the first two //Crazy Taxi// games, and a just fucking ridiculous mission mode (Crazy X). If you like hard, video-gamey video games it's great. It also works wonderfully as a pick up and play diversion for 10 minutes.     * firenze: the nighttime Vegas setting is really great.

     * Swarm: It's like Disney'​s Talespin if instead of a bear it starred Nathan Drake from Uncharted. The game gives you a bunch of big maps and lets you do a bunch of missions in them until you move on. Has some nice early levels that have you flying through island caves that it drops way too early. Simplistic but solid gameplay, if you know how to lead targets you'll win every time.     * Swarm: It's like Disney'​s Talespin if instead of a bear it starred Nathan Drake from Uncharted.

     * boojiboy7: A game created with a decent collectible card game as its backbone, but instead of playing cards, the players act out the battle in largely destructible environments that change a fight. Technically backwards compatible on the 360, but there are some framerate issues and occasional lockups. Still worth playing it that way if that's the only way you can.     * boojiboy7: A game created with a decent collectible card game as its backbone, but instead of playing cards, the players act out the battle in largely destructible environments that change a fight.

     * Leau: Psychonauts is a must play. Yeah there'​s a port for it on the PS2, but it's a really shoddy one, and the game just feels much better on the xbox (I've beaten both versions to 100% completion).     * Leau: Psychonauts is a must play.

     * Intentionally Wrong: People bag on //​Psychonauts//​ for being "just another platformer"​ but they were too caught up being offended by the routine to notice what an odd fusion Psychonauts really is. It's got the hub design of //​[[game:​Mario Sunshine]]//​ but the levels are all over the map: several are traditional platforming action, others are more about adventure game sensibilities. Every level has some unifying characteristic that makes it unique, though: one level has you combining scripts and scenery with mood-lighting on a stage to create different platform configurations;​ another involves personally recruiting and deploying units in a strategy board game against [[character:​Napoleon Bonaparte]]. Taken together with the brilliant writing, //​Psychonauts//​ becomes one of my top three games of all time.     * Intentionally Wrong: People bag on //​Psychonauts//​ for being "just another platformer"​ but they were too caught up being offended by the routine to notice what an odd fusion Psychonauts really is.

     * Rudie: ​ While the other [[game:​silent_hill_series|Silent Hill games]] lend themselves to multiple playthroughs,​ a lot of this game hinges on surprise and not knowing what to expect. ​ You explore the titular room in first-person,​ and totally hit the shit out of dogs with a charge meter and typical third-person.     * Rudie: ​ While the other [[game:​silent_hill_series|Silent Hill games]] lend themselves to multiple playthroughs,​ a lot of this game hinges on surprise and not knowing what to expect. ​ You explore the titular room in first-person,​ and totally hit the shit out of dogs with a charge meter and typical third-person.

     * Intentionally Wrong: I also enjoyed //Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory// for its multiplayer. Yes, we all know how //​[[game:​metal_gear_series|Metal Gear]]// is sooo much better. Whatever. I found multiplayer //Splinter Cell// pretty fucking awesome, although I am a notorious sucker for asymmetrical units. I haven'​t played single-player past the first mission; I kind of hate stealth games. (I also love them. I do both.) ​     * Intentionally Wrong: I also enjoyed //Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory// for its multiplayer. Yes, we all know how //​[[game:​metal_gear_series|Metal Gear]]// is sooo much better.
