Hotline Miami

Everyone keeps on telling me how Hotline Miami’s aesthetics and music are brilliant. For me, though, that’s not a major attraction. It’s the fact that the game is a perfect example of something that is mechanically extremely simple yet full of depth. Easy to pick up and play, difficult to master. In that sense, it feels like an 8- or 16-bit title.

Absolutely sublime.
