Dont think it was made this year but I saw it for the first time: Napoleon Dynamite. Thought it was fantastic. A kind of Waynes World of Mormons and geeks.

Just started playing Zelda: Link's Awakening on my Gameboy Color that I picked up at the car boot last week. Cant beleive its 12 years old, its fantastic. I'd rather play this than carry on with Windwaker. It's just like Link to the Past which I loved.

Re:

Take one game, sit down, play game, evaluate game, remember it is 2005 and you're a grown up (or at least pretend to do during day-time), and come to a conclusion. Galaga is great. Centipede is great. Space Invaders _only_ has retro value for me. I'd "put it on the shelf" or "hang it on the wall" f...

There are good modern games, you just have to be a hell of a lot more selective. Resident Evil 4 is one of the best games I have ever played, they finally nailed an unobtrusive intuitive 3rd person control scheme and put in some amazing set pieces. I also love Viewtiful Joe, a great modern 2D platfo...
