A Hat in Time
Game of the year, 2017. Need I say more?
Okay, guess I'd better say more.
I have a lot of time for 3D platformers. Some of my earliest gaming memories belong in their polygonal, awkward-to-control, wonkily-camera'd worlds, normally hosted by cute animal characters beating the h*ck out of each other. After a renaissance (if you can call its only epoch a renaissance) in the mid-to-late 90s, they lapsed. Game genres tend to do that now and again, but 3D platformers burned twice as bright for half as long, and without Ratchet and Clank to bear the torch during the 2000s, they would've died out completely.
Anyway, the point is they're back; and A Hat in Time is the way to do it.
