I strongly reccomend evrything Standardman says because he's cool (his girlfriend is a 20 yo hottie, guys. And he's a geek. Learn, fuckers, learn)

In this case even more. "World of Goo" is poetic and sweet and with that extra oomph that inventive games had in the golden age. Like Lemmings. It's one of those games that's almost impossible to explain, but as soon as you start playing, everything is clear and addictive. Plus, it looks gorgeous and cute.

If anyone of you hasnt played "Longest Journey", you suck. It's the predecessor to Dreamfall and a much better and more intelligent game. A magnificient mood, with some super-detailed graphics, a sci-fi feeling that reminds me of China Miéville (ahem. Sorry, i geeked out) and some of the most human, complex and fascinating characters ever portrayed in a game. Mostly, April Ryan is, with Alyx Vance of HL2, the best female charcter ever created. Let Ragnar Tornquist break your heart.

"Sanitarium" is a great adventure game that accomplishes the task of dropping you in an early David Lynch movie. Deformed Children, rotting asylums, sentient insects, child abusing preachers, sadistic doctors, heaven and hell. And you play a disfigured asshole who spouts hatred at everyone he speaks to.

C'mon guys. Treat yourselves.
