73. Games like this make me cry – in a good way.

Well, not really, but almost.

I’d just like to take a minute to consider Flower. It has just won an award for Best Downloadable at this year’s GDC and it’s not hard to see why.

It is one of the finest and most innovative games of the last year and the gameplay is just sublime (yes I’ve played Heavy Rain). My experiences of guiding the petals round the levels using only the Sixaxis were so good they were indescribable. It was an achingly beautiful concept, executed to perfection and I can’t wait to see what Jenova Chen and the rest of the crew at ThatGameCompany will come up with next.

Congratulations to them on an award well earned. Gush over.
