16. Rayman: Origins
Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, Published by Ubisoft
Rayman has always been one of those franchises that, for whatever reason, is easy to overlook. Yet even if you've never played a Rayman game (and, I'm not ashamed to admit, I haven't), Origins is worth a look. It's one of the finest platformers in years. Let's just hope Ubisoft can reproduce whatever circumstances caused this game to be so awesome for the next one.
