** VideoGame/CrashBandicootNSaneTrilogy...need I say more? The first three Crash games, given a graphical update with all of the levels from their respective games lovingly recreated to the core, all of the games getting optional Time Trials with their own Sapphire, Gold, and Platinum Relics, the option to play as Coco in any level that isn't a ride or boss level, and above all, good, fluid control that takes some time to get used to if you played the originals first but otherwise aren't that bad? Oh yeah, and these games [[NintendoHard still like to kick you in the balls and remind you that you're playing the first three games]]. And when you complete a stage, it feels ''so'' rewarding to reap those sweet rewards...

** If you enjoy character customization, the ''Dynasty Warriors Empires'' spinoffs are right up your alley. Each iteration of this subseries adds more features and gives you freedom to play out the story you want to play. Want Wang Yuanji to marry Zhao Yun? Go for it! Want Dong Zhuo to conquer China? No reason why not! Want to make your own army of original characters? The only real limit is your imagination!

* ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' is the poster child for CapcomSequelStagnation, and has an AI that's retarded, but its also hack and slash taken to its core. Its your army vs the enemies army over a thousand people want you dead, the way to gain horses are always fun, the secrets are great, and the characters are always well designed. When you do a crowd clearing move the enemies are sent flying by the strokes of your weapons. Also its got ancient Chinese laser beams, and ancient Chinese flamethrowers in the form of wooden tigers. How awesome can this series get? The Nanman fight on Elephants! You get to use one as a mount! Its the most cathartic game series of all times, just turn on the game choose a level and start killing people without all the hassle of wanted levels.

* The [[http://www.aksysgames.com/bittripbeat Bit]] [[http://www.commandervideo.com Trip]] [[http://www.explorethevoid.com Series]] for WiiWare. These gems combine wonderful retro-styled visuals, EarWorm music and stupidly addictive points-based rhythm-action game play. Buy any one of these games and you won't need another game for months. They may be NintendoHard, but the feeling of pure accomplishment you get when you master them is the pinnacle of gaming for me.

* The quality can vary from AWESOME to DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible, but I have to raise my glass and cheer the fans who make {{Fan Sequel}}s and {{Fan Remake}}s of {{Sierra}} games. They do this on their own time, their own money, and face everything from [[StopHavingFunGuys lawsuits]] to people flaking on the project to real-life getting in the way. In particular, I have to toast VideoGame/TheSilverLiining team for their perseverance and Tierra[=/=]Creator/AGDInteractive for taking what is possibly the most frustrating, non-sensical, SolveTheSoupCans entry of the VideoGame/KingsQuest series and making it into something that is awesome on every level - voice acting (including Josh Mandel reprising Graham!), music, puzzles, and STORY.

** In all fairness to VideoGame/ModernWarfare, it's not nearly as realistic as the mainstream media wants you to believe. Its tactical FPS fore bearers - like the original ''VideoGame/RainbowSix'', ''DeltaForce'' and ''GhostRecon'' games; all of those series' first installments released before the [=PS2=] era - slanted much further in realism than any of the Modern Warfare games. In fact, a late 2011 issue of GameInformer brought up several realistic PC FPS games as an antithesis to VideoGame/ModernWarfare3, just to dismantle this myth. Hell, even ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'' has more realism than VideoGame/ModernWarfare, and no one mistook that game as anything beyond a more arcadey VideoGame/RainbowSix. VideoGame/ModernWarfare is more MisBlamed than anything, thanks to its [[ItsPopularNowItSucks popularity]] pigeonholing it into TropeCodifier territory for gritty, realistic FPS games, even though this clearly isn't true. Sure, the VideoGame/ModernWarfare series has plenty of legitimate faults, but being too realistic ain't one of them.

*** ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' actually manages to outdo its predecessor in almost every way and take the throne as the greatest superhero game of all time. It's got a complex and really enjoyable story (sometimes a little overly crowded but it works), spectacular design, loads of side missions and Riddler puzzles, brilliant gameplay that expands on the original in every aspect, great music, and incredible voice acting across the board. I expected a great game. [[SoCoolItsAwesome What I did not expect was one of the finest action/adventure games ever made.]]

* Who would of thought that a game as simple as ''VideoGame/BeatHazard'' would be so fun and addictive! You can take '''any''' music that ''you'' want to play and rave out to the beat while shooting up all sorts of space ships! The controls are so simple to pickup and play, the gameplay can be hectic or simplistic as you want it to be, all while enjoying your tunes! Don't feel like shooting things but like the trippy light show of the game? You can put the game into Chill Out mode and you can play your music in ''Beat Hazard'' without picking up the controller (or keyboard)! You don't have to enjoy this gem alone; you and a buddy can team in co-op or go head-to-head and score the most points. This game is all around fun for everyone (who are not epileptic) in the simplest form!

* ''VideoGame/DustAnElysianTail'' has beautiful 2D graphics, a compelling story, and slick controls all wrapped in a 2D sidescroller. Even more amazingly it was programmed, written, and drawn by ONE PERSON with only the voice actors and music producer making up the rest of his team. It's also one of the few mainstream works with furry character that takes itself seriously instead of being a mascot title.

Even more amazingly it was programmed, written, and drawn by ONE PERSON with only the voice actors and music producer making up the rest of his team. The plot itself is a fairly serious drama about racism with a genocidal tyrant who hates "cold-blooded' species such as reptiles as the villain. It's also one of the few mainstream works with furry character characters that takes itself seriously instead of being a mascot title.
