Hotline Miami
I don't really know how to describe this game, so let's start with it's entry on Wikipedia:

Quote:
Hotline Miami is a 2D top-down action video game by Dennaton Games, a team composed of Jonatan Söderström and Dennis Wedin. The game was published by Devolver Digital and released on October 23, 2012 for Microsoft Windows. The game has been described by Eurogamer as "a top-down f***-'em-up", blending top down perspective with stealth, extreme violence and surreal storytelling, along with a soundtrack and visuals influenced by 1980s culture. The game itself was influenced in part by Nicolas Winding Refn's 2011 neo-noir crime drama film Drive, as well as Cocaine Cowboys; Refn is specifically thanked in the game's credits, and the game even features a similar "Driver" jacket lying on the floor in several levels.
Basically the game is weird, fucked up, addicting, violent, bloody (for 8-bit), kind of nonsensical, and kind of a blast. Admittedly, I've only put in about an hour at this point, but man, what an hour it was. I'll definitely be going back for more. Even the soundtrack is pretty good, and it's all 80s-style synthesizers and whatnot.
