Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is an impressively fun and well crafted platforming game. It has the perfect balance between precision platforming and forgiving level design that it doesn't feel like the game is overly difficult just to frustrate you. It also has spectacular graphics and the switching mechanic is well done. You may think that the game shows all of its mechanics at the beginning of the game, but you would be wrong. There is plenty of different ideas executed to keep the gameplay from being boring. It also has a great amount of exploration in the levels that will keep you hunting for more and more gems.
Oh and collecting gems is one of the most satisfying experiences in this game. Combined with a great soundtrack, heart-warming characters and lots of great levels, Giana Sisters will have you coming back again and again. Just a fair warning, this is still a very difficult platforming game and unless you really like platformers, you will get frustrated by its difficulty early on. It isn't Super Meat Boy levels of hard but it comes within striking distance of that game. The graphics are rather demanding too so you may have to turn them down. But it is a great game to play and one of my favorite platformers.
An insane, magic based game about killing your friends. Many times. Oh, there are other enemies in this game? Yeah, just forget about them. With friends like yours, you don't need enemies. Magicka is an odd, buggy as heck game. But this weird mixing of game mechanics makes for a surprisingly sane game. For as long as you quit killing each other. Which might happen for a total of 30seconds. I don't make any promises beyond that.
Be wary, this game is pretty buggy and is really only fun with other friends. So it is quite the rolling of the dice to buy it but if you can all get it to work, you should have quite a blast in this isometric game about Wizards saving the day.
A game that is really only fun with friends. Let's be honest here. Really good graphics and a spooky zombie environment make for a very fun game. I don't really need to say more because the game is great and you should have gotten it anyway. It also has easier modding support via Steam Workshop. I was fortunate enough to get the chance to play this regularly with friends at one time and that was a blast. Favorite mode would definitely have to be VS modes. Being able to play as the special kind of zombies was a lot of fun. You should check this one out if you haven't already.
