Best Platforming Game

Fez’s release was a long time coming and it didn’t disappoint. This deep and cryptic adventure leaves gamers with a sense of confusion, yet enjoyment, that isn’t seen with any other game. It’s a unique and abstract experience that’s easily accessible to everyone, but has a much deeper meaning once playing through it a second time. The idea of swapping perspective to change the world around you seems so simple, but is implemented perfectly so that it never felt old. There’s a reason why Fez is as highly praised as it is, as we couldn’t seem to put this beautifully crafted puzzle platformer down.
