There is one game that I don't hear much talk about when it comes to this generation's best and even "Greatest Games of All Time" discussions and that game is "Geometry Wars". It was my first downloadable game I ever bought when I got my 360 nearly seven years ago and over all these years, I am still just as addicted to it. It pioneered digital games to the mass appeal they are today and is, at least in my opinion, right there with the likes of Tetris, Marble Madness and some of the best puzzle games and games in general ever made. I'm just baffled that it's 2012 and I'm still playing this game.
Also, think of this sentiment, some of the earlier games that became known as some of the greatest games ever made, like Tetris and such are very simple in concept. Here is Geometry Wars, in a time when games have evolved to become bigger and more grandios than anything video game players in the 70's, 80's and even the early 90's would have ever thought, GW is in the same vein in that it's simple in concept but deep and yet, it's in a way more captivating and has held my attention for not too far from a decade where's no other bigger game has in the exact same way. It's just interesting to think about it.
