The growth of Black Rock Shooter is truly a marvel to watch. It started off as a piece of art by Huke of Supercell, then had a brief music video made set to some Vocaloid music.

Bastion is, in a word, incredible. It takes the standard Action RPG formula and adds enough quirks and style to make it feel completely different. It shows the incredible potential of downloadable games as rich and rewarding game experiences in their own right.
