My 10 best games of the past 10 years - Peter Willington
As part of the Pocket Gamer 10th anniversary fun we've blackmailed former PG members into giving us a quick rundown of their favourite ten games of the past ten years. (We've also asked them to relive their PG moments, Peter included.)
They've not been asked to rank these so don't take the order below as set in stone. Rather, think of these games as a collection of digital experiences that will enrich your life.
Or perhaps look through the list and mock their choices.Create your own list
If you do disagree, here's the magic bit: you can give us your list.
See the 'Create your own Top List' button at the bottom of the article? It's not a trick.
You'll need to be registered with PG (and logged in) if you aren't yet.
Click on that button and the rest should prove relatively straightforward.
(You can also create lists from within your Pocket Gamer user profile, at the bottom of the 'Logged in as [x]' dropdown menu.)
You can list your all-time favourite portable games, your favourite endless runners, shooters, candy-covered-pony-featuring titles, or even your favourite game making studios.
We all love lists. Share your thoughts and you can soon see your selection on the PG site.
What's all this, then? The Pocket Gamer 10th anniversary is a month-long celebration of the last decade of mobile games running March 10th - April 10th and featuring a stream of retrospective articles and fun stuff, supported by our friends at Gram Games, Gamevil, JoyCity, Rovio, Nordeus, and Ninja Kiwi. Head over to the PG 10th anniversary homepage for more information.
Super accessible, gets you in "the zone" like no other game.
An incredible achievement of design and imagination on all levels.
A poem about the cycles of nature, rendered as a digital game.
Progress to 100
Far more than a collection of minigames, Progress is the kind of game you want to show all your friends.
Ingenious spin on interactive fiction, beautifully executed, and lingers long after the credits roll.
Broken Sword: Director's Cut
A classic, given the renovation treatment it deserved.
Cut the Rope
A soft and cutesy exterior masking puzzle design so fiendishly clever it'll remain on your device for months.
Terry Cavanagh's arcade-y masterpiece.
A criminally underrated strategy management game that evolved the basics of play to a fine point. I must have put a few hundred hours in before I /had/ to remove it from my tablet.
New Super Mario Bros
Nintendo in a nutshell: brand new and comfortingly familiar, all at the same time.
