Deadly Premonition boasts dated graphics and some truly terrible combat, nevertheless, it is one of the best games of the year. A survival horror title set in the quirkiest and most robust open worlds in recent memory, the game’s atmosphere and tone is an absolute delight.

Oh, and in a recessionary Christmas season, the budget pricing sure doesn’t hurt.
