GOTY Winners: Best Platformer

Many people just couldn’t get around the idea of a fully priced, Blu-Ray PS3 game that was a side-scrolling platformer. Although many of these games are now confined to downloadable arcade status, LittleBigPlanet brought something special to the genre. And contrary to its harmless, cutesy exterior, this was not an easy game. The level design was excruciatingly complex at times, and coupled with Sackboy’s floaty disposition and fantastic environment physics, LittleBigPlanet was without a doubt the most exhilarating platforming experience of 2008.
