46. FEZ (NR)

A platforming collectathon with tons of tough puzzles is pretty much as up my alley as anything can be.  There are tons of mathematical concepts embedded in the design of this game and it's virtually an homage to a bunch of interesting math concepts.  Switching between 2D projections of the 3D world in order to work through puzzles and platforming challenges is really fun and allows for jumps which make no sense in the 3D world behind the scenes to be made. Solving the many cryptograms to figure out what actions to take to find the hidden cubes was a welcome challenge that the game was still beatable without.  Fez never forces itself on you but instead lets you choose how to enjoy its world. Aside from a blinking light that was really hard to spot and the final puzzle for which there hasn't been a satisfactory explanation of the solution I was able to work through the puzzles and they kept me busy for a while.

Primarily an RPG player but have interest in any game that will make me think.
