Game of the Week #8 – Top 5 Favorite Games – Psychonauts

From the years of about 2003 – 2012, my family owned an Xbox, first gen. My dad had a friend at his work who could mod our Xbox so we could burn games to the hard drive. At my brother’s request, that’s exactly what he did. So, during the entire duration of owning the Xbox that I can remember, we never bought games for it. We would go to Blockbuster on a fairly regular basis and rent games, and if we liked them, we would just burn it, return it, and play the game for as long as we wanted. Illegal, yes, but fun and convenient, definitely yes. Many of my first and most fond gaming memories came from that Xbox.

One of those memories was playing Psychonauts. Psychonauts is one of the most imaginative, fun, and funny games I’ve ever played, a game that hits on most fronts with flying colors. Aside from a few notable flaws, I can say without hesitation that this game will likely never be dethroned by another (unless they come out with a sequel, Notch), and this is why you should play it.
