#8. LIMBO
Systems: 360
Release Date: July 21
Let's just quote from our review of the little downloadable puzzle-platformer that could: "It’s a small single-player experience, but what it does do is stay with you, actually raising questions about, y’know, life: Who we are, what happens to us, and what we have within us to keep us going through the uncertainty. There’s tension, and sometimes terror, but always tenacity. This is a game, above all, that Roger Ebert needs to play. Yeah, we said it: Limbo is a work of art. And it reaches that status not through its gameplay or its graphics, but through the humanity that suffuses the entire experience." Five months later, we still feel that way.
