Platforms: PS3

The sheer creative energy that we have at our fingertips whenever we pop in Little Big Planet 2 is still astounding. Sure, Sackboy is cute and all, and the platforming is responsive, and the level design is often jawdropping,  but beyond that we're simply blown away by the scope (and ambition) of user-created content out there. There's a custom level out there for practically every taste—and if there isn’t, you can make it yourself quick enough. You almost don’t have to buy any other games. Except that would probably ruin things.
