    Never heard of it, but I'm sure the journey getting here, was well worth it.

    Gotta love games that offer themselves to puns.

    I have issues with numbering them, as there are multiple games that share the same number of nominations. So between #19 and #20 it just comes down to whatever one I feel like posting first. To get around this, I decided just to forget about it and ascend through the nominations!

    I'm surprised it didn't get more votes, but glad Journey made the top 20!

    Not too much love for Journey, eh? I have never played it, but it is sitting on my shelf waiting to be popped into the system - it was a special edition that was packed with Flower and Flow.

    Journey was fun and certainly unique. I liked it, but I didn't 'Top 20' like it. I played it once and thought 'well that was a cool little game' and had no desire to play it again.

    Crisis Core was a fun game and Zack was a great character. The story was just ok and the gameplay got very repetitive, but I loved Zack. And those final scenes were pretty powerful.

    So far a PSP exclusive and PS3 exclusive. SUCK IT XBOX AND PC LOVERS

    Journey was certainly a neat experience, but as far as being equal to CC? Not a chance. Crisis core was not only emotionally touching, but also had great replay value and A+ gameplay.

    Journey was more emotionally touching that CC. There, I said it.

    Still haven't played Journey but expect I will soon now that I'm on PS+. All I know is it won a ton of GOTY so I figured if would be up here somewhere.

    Glad to see this start off with a surprise in FFVII:CC, outside of BoB's list I hardly remembered the game existed!

    All right, gamers, I want a nice clean fight. No walkthroughs, no hints, no gameshark, no code breakers, no hacking, no mods. Winners get a lifetime supply of cheese crackers and the losers gets made fun of on South Park.

    Journey is such a good game. I've played through it quite a few times, including getting all of the little white orb things and getting the white cloak thing for my character. I can definitely see why people wouldn't place it in the top 20, but I found it to be a pretty moving, inspirational game.

    X-Com: Enemy Unknown
    2012 PC, PS3, Xbox 360
    5 Nominations


    If you spend much time online you've probably heard of the original X-Com. You've probably heard about it at great length, whether you wanted to or not. Those of us who played it back in the early 90s remember a game of near-perfect. It's long been lauded as one of the best, if not the best, videogame ever made, and this is not a title that it has no claim to. So, when a remake was announced you could hear the despairing cry of the hardcore grognards all around the world - surely this would be a casual remake, a butchering of a beloved name, a horrible cash-in?

    Well, turns out that wasn't the case. Actually it turned out that the new XCOM was a supremely accomplished game and even if it doesn't quite match up to the original, it comes a hell of a lot closer than anyone was expecting. XCOM realized what was most important about the series is, above all else, the atmosphere of tension and paranoia that pervades everything. A mission can go south in an instant, you can lose your best veteran with dozens of xenos killed, because you did something dumb. Heck sometimes you do everything right and still lose, and you just have to roll with it. And you're fighting a battle of attrition you can't win, so you're racing to figure out countermeasures to aliens and their skills, to understand their purpose and motives, and to take the fight to them. This tension is what XCOM aimed to reproduce and it did a truly admirable job of it.

    From the base view, you can expand and enhance your headquarters in order to provide more advantages, from better satellite coverage of the Earth to more skills for your soldiers, and you make strategic decisions about which missions to undertake and which must be ignored. Once this decision is made your squad, ranging from four to six people, is deployed into a tactical, turn-based battle scene. Forests, farms, construction sites, highways, diners, gas stations - all kinds of locations are represented, and although it lacks the originals randomly generated maps these ones are crafted well enough, and exist in sufficient number, that this is only a small mark against the remake. As you win you'll upgrade your soldiers with new talents and skills, new armour, and new weapons, all of which will soon be put to the test as the aliens deploy ever-more-dangerous foes.

    Very few games understand the importance of atmosphere and the creation of tension and paranoia. The original X-Com did, and that's why twenty years later it's still regarded as a timeless classic. The remake understands this as well, and though it's not quite up to those giddy heights of the Gollop Brothers' original, it comes wonderfully close. There's an expansion out a few days ago as well, adding more of everything, so you may want to check that out as well if a brilliant tactical game sounds like your thing!

    There appear to be more games under this space dust:

    Super Mario Galaxy (4)
    Metal Gear Solid 4 (3)
    Europa Universalis IV (2)
    Halo 3 (2)
    Infamous (1)
    Rock Band (1)
    Mafia II (1)
    Soul Calibur 4 (1)
    Eternal Sonata (1)
    The Last Remnant (1)

    Last one for the evening folks!
