Games Ideas – Martial Arts and Crafts

I agree that the title is a bit dorky, but I really can’t think of anything else to call it and honestly, “Gymcraft” wouldn’t really describe the idea in its entirety, so here goes. Two sub-genres I’ve been liking a LOT lately have been Metroidvanias and roguelikes. Of course, we already have an excellent combination of both worlds: Rogue Legacy.

RPG of the Year – 2011

I was hoping this year would be a little more eventful and tough to pick a top 5, but it really isn’t. Sure, the top 5 are EXCELLENT and there are a few good runner ups, but there are also a lot of terrible MMOs and poorly thought out mobile games. There are 81 games in total, but you probably already know what’s going on the top 5.

E.V.O. – The Search For Eden

It almost sounds backwards, yet it really is quite brilliant.

Emulation Arcade – Avengers

Avengers is a fun, straightforward action brawler that involves you advancing toward a seemingly endless barrage of enemies, punching and kicking your way to justice. Yes, this sounds like Final Fight, but there are a number of twists. Firstly, it’s overhead and has a look and feel similar to that of Commando, but with you going through ghettos and all kinds of weird areas instead of the desert.

RPG of the Year – 2006

Holy shit damn, what a huge year! 57 games! And yes, there was a Sega Genesis game released this year. This is also one of those awkward years where a lot of developers were jumping to the new systems while other ones were still very unsure and wanting to develop stuff on the PS2, GBA, and so on. Very interesting stuff. Well, let’s hop in!

RPG of the Year – 2002

This was a surprisingly dry year, at least compared to last year. There are only 18 games this time and sadly, not all of them are great. Let’s hop into it!
