Hotline Miami
Hotline Miami came out of nowhere to take the collective gaming world by storm when it was released in October. Even though the game won awards at indie shows earlier that year, no one could have expected just how good the game would be. Taking inspiration from both top-down shooters of the ‘90s and the blaring synth-music and neon draped scenery of the ‘80s (not to mention a heaping helping of 2011’s Drive), Hotline Miami is like no game you’ve played before. Featuring one of the best soundtracks of the year, comprised of true indie electronic artists (some great discoveries here), the entire experience is trippy, strange and incredibly addictive.
