Battleblock Theater
While it was a slow year for Xbox exclusives, BattleBlock Theater gave Xbox gamers plenty to do. This all starts off with the story, which is told via paper cutouts on Popsicle sticks and is narrated by the infamous Will Stamper. Sure, the story isn’t that deep, but you’ll be too busy laughing to care. Especially when you get the to the end and… well, it’s definitely one of those games you need to finish. Upon finishing the game, you can take your antics online and experience redesigned levels that force you to work with your partner. However, don’t be surprised if your partner decides to troll you instead. If co-op isn’t your thing, there is also a robust community section, where you can try your hand at user created content or make your own stages. These stages could end up becoming a Furbottom’s Feature, which not only highlights your work, but also typically offers a unique prisoner for completing. With so much to do, it’s hard to believe this gem is only $14.99.
