#11- Hotline Miami
This game was (and probably still is) one of the most horrifically graphically violent games that I have ever played.
And it’s awesome.
Hotline Miami is a level-based top-down shoot-em-up that winds up being a puzzler more than anything. Every level features rooms full of goons that you have to take out, and so each level presents a new challenge. Do I run in guns blazing and hope for the best? Or should I choose to pick up the throwing knife and take out the guard silently? Compounded with a choice of mask that gives you special abilities, Hotline Miami is simply addicting to play. And I haven’t even mentioned the story; The story of Hotline Miami is going to be one where you have to look up reddit posts and youtube videos to feel as though you understand it completely- and it will be utterly satisfying once you do. The sequel is really great as well, by the way. I really can’t recommend Hotline Miami enough.
