I think the best game I've played this year is Fire Emblem: Awakening. It's that rare game that goes both broader in making the game accessible to more people, and also deeper offering more tactical considerations for veterans. In our modern era of casual games versus core games, 'kiddy' Nintendo, shorter and shorter single player games, and JRPGs falling ever further into niche, the achievement of this release swimming against all those currents is truly remarkable. I have yet to find someone who dislikes this game. There are only those who like it, and those who haven't played it.
