I am 100% certain that everyone has a game that they love with all of their heart, but whenever you bring it up to others you need to explain why you adore it so.
I would love to know what games hold that place for the good people of Waypoint! I’ll start:
For me it /has/ to be Viva Piñata/Trouble in Paradise. When I got my 360 my parents got it for me as well because it looked cute. Honestly if they didn’t pick it up I probably would have slept on it too. But the minute I started playing it had me hooked. The loop was simple but addictive. You tend to your garden to attract piñata. Tending to your garden involves, growing flowers, digging ponds, building homes, and caring for you Piñata. It’s beautiful and the music (done by Grant Kirkhope) is outstanding.
The game rewards experimentation, feeding your piñata the right food can result in them changing colours, learning a trick, or turning into a new Piñata altogether! Plus the amount of juggling you have to do in order to grow your garden, while also caring for your current Piñata, makes it feel almost like an RTS. I could go on for days about how great VP is. I’m gonna take a step back though.
The floor is yours!
