That was totally how I felt about it. I was going to buy it a month or so ago because it was making waves, but gameplay videos turned me off. I finally decided to buy it on Christmas day since it was making so many lists, and man, it has really grown on me. It's hard to explain why, because it looks like the gameplay videos when you play, but there's that special X factor in there that makes it something I keep wanting to go back to. It's become a fast favorite. xjaff - I do this terrible thing where I delete everyone from my Game Center friend list and then re-add them because I decide every 6-12 months that I just want people I know in person, then I decide that's stupid because all my in person friends are awful at video games. So, I probably deleted you. I'd send you a new friend request, but I can't since I have the Game Center bug on my iPhone and haven't been able to log in for a few months. It does work on the Apple TV, so I can still do stuff there (but you can't send friend requests from there). Speaking of the Game Center bug, I wasn't able to try out Implosion yet, because it won't start without Game Center. I tried Lara Croft GO, but was not a fan. I think I have a lot of bad associations with Lara Croft/Tomb Raider that ruined the experience - maybe if it had been an original character instead I would have liked it. Horizon Chase is fantastic! Definitely worthy of however well it does in our poll, though it doesn't hit my personal tastes quite as much as Downwell, which was my pick. Still love Alto's Adventure, which is a lot of fun on Apple TV. Haven't played the other three. Maybe Dust eventually, but the other two aren't my style at all.
