Whatever your favorite game is, Another World probably influenced it. Cinematic moments? Unique animation styles? A companion you cared about? Storytelling twists? They all tie back to this title. That makes it especially refreshing that this 20th-anniversary version of the classic action/adventure platformer doesn't alter what made it great. The graphics have been tweaked to make them a bit more palatable for modern gamers, but they still basically keep their old-school appearance. And the gameplay has been left alone completely.

This was one of the first games to elicit an emotional reaction from players -- and the ending still manages to do so today. It's not an easy title, and it will require some dedication, even if you choose to play on the "easy" setting in options. But it's worth it. Although not every title from the early days of gaming is worth a modern version -- and certainly many don't hold up well over time -- Another World has achieved timelessness. And you won't regret spending a few hours with it, even if you've played several times before.
