Nhex: Once again proving that Valve knows how to acquire talent, this game brought out the obsession in me for a good chunk of this year. It’s basically a co-op time attack game with very well designed levels and a pretty awful community, likely due to being free. The EXP unlock / prestige system is a little evil, but I damn well know if they ever get around to releasing new weapons or maps I’ll jump back in. It’s a shame this will probably be ignored by Valve, because the effort of design shows, it gets shockingly deep and brutal. And free!

Wait…free?
