How did this one get by the good reviews?

Contrast (Xbox 360)

I just bought this the other day on sale after trying the demo and falling in love with it. What a clever design of a game! I am a fan of the older world, like the 20's in this game for instance, and just really enjoy the sets and costumes and the game play so far. I know it's a cheap and easy completion, but I didn't research that going into it. I simply thought it looked neat and downloaded the demo.

I recommend you guys get this one and just enjoy it as both a game and a clever work of art. The narrative is possibly haunting so far, as the little girl you shadow seems surreal and etheral for some reason. I don't know, I've just really enjoyed it so far. Anyone else get in on this one?

Crap, missed adding a poll.
I picked this game up also. At the sale price they made it real easy for me.

You can always add a poll after :P
I can't even understand your subject line. Played this game twice for 2000 points, it didn't slip past me.

I played it for the Extra Life, and stayed for the excellence.
I was interested when it launched, got it a year later followed up by the X1 version. Very good looking game and fun.

Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

It makes me wonder how many other hidden gems of a game have I missed....

If looking for a gem or at least not a horrible game have you played Deathspank those are kinda fun and have some humor to go with them.
I enjoyed both versions, i loved the music and the atmosphere, the shadow shifting was a bonus.

Like a single game for 1000 points, or a newly backwards compatible title (while he still has a functioning 360), or similar. Honestly, it's like there is a badge associated with saying "I need to get an X1" X number of times.
