2009 sure seemed to fly by, but at least it didn’t escape without blessing us with some old-school goodness. Instead of established publishers relying on old franchises, we are seeing more small developers bring some fresh ideas to their retro-styled creations. While I personally don’t mind some remakes here and there, it is encouraging to see that 2D and retro-styled games can find a place in the market without big names or nostolgia behind them.
Anyway, to determine our list of this year’s candidates, I turned to the forum to nominate their favorites. Below is the result — if something you think it worthy is not listed below, (first of all, shame on you for not being active in the forum ) please mention it kindly in the comments below and I may add it.
Please vote for your five favorites of the year, and we will see who comes out on top!
