47. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (40 last year), first impression 8, replayability 6, technical score 8.

Pros: It's a sequel to Metroid Prime (no spoilers are needed to say that's my number one this year as in prior years) and still kept up a lot of what made Metroid Prime so perfect, from the tone of the game to its beautiful worlds to an adventure-focused style of FPS combat

Cons: Beam ammo and some bosses that made you want to rip your own head off (like the Boost Guardian, Spider Guardian, and phase 3 of the Emperor Ing). The difficulty spikes hurt its replay value, the odd choice of beam ammo (the first and only time in any Metroid game this was implemented) hurts technical score. Difficulty was remodeled somewhat in the Trilogy re-release, but i'm judging the original game here.

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
