Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

GR's Best of 2005 Awards

Action Action/Adventure First-Person Shooter Online Puzzle Top 5
Racing RPG Sports Strategy Editor's Choice
So many games, so few awards. It just doesn't seem fair, does it? That's what the Editor's Choice awards are for. The following games were so cool, we had to give 'em something. Long live the mutts!


 

Guitar Hero


Publisher: Red Octane
Developer: Harmonix
Platform: PS2

Call it a gimmick, but don't call it a hack - Guitar Hero is a monstrous talent and probably would have received a Game of the Year award if we could have figured out where to put it. But as an accessible, fun and rewarding guitar sim with a great selection of music, this solid rocker is in an arena all its own.


 

Condemned: Criminal Origins


Publisher: Sega
Developer: Monolith
Platform: Xbox 360

The best Xbox 360 launch title that doesn't involve wheels, this creepy crawler from the mad masters at Monolith r0x0red our b0x0rs, while scaring us out of them. Unusual for its slow pace, gruesome melee combat and twisted plot, this gore-fest kills the competition, then eats it with a nice chianti and some fava beans.


 

We Love Katamari


Publisher: Namco
Developer: Namco
Platform: PS2

And we know you do, too, so we just had to give it an award. No, it didn't come with a bigger ball or a more complex control scheme, but it did unfold the hilariously operatic saga of the King of All Cosmos, while giving us exactly what we wanted from the original � more Katamari. Plus, the songs. THE SONGS.


 

The Warriors


Publisher: Rockstar
Developer: Rockstar Toronto
Platform: PS2 | Xbox

Perhaps the most surprisingly great game of 2005, The Warriors evades the curse of the movie license by deftly ducking into its namesake's backstory. Instead of simply telling you what you already know and showing you what you've already seen, it provides a glimpse into the everyday lives of these vested hooligans. Can you dig it? We sure did.
