The surprisingly best game of all time

Last night I had a conversation with my brother about what games were surprisingly good. There are always the great games that you expect to be good, but this was about games that you had no expectations and they blew you away. Infamous was a surprise to me since I'm not a fan of gray city, sandbox crap. I gave it a chance because its the Sly Cooper guys and I loved it. The biggest surprise I have had this generation is My Sims Kingdom. We rented it because we rent every lame ass Wii game in hopes of finding anything decent for the kids to play on that horrible platform. I was shocked by fantastic writing, great characters and incredibly fun and varied game mechanics. Nintendo take notes.

Thats some recent goods but we both agreed that the surprisingly best game of all time is Duck Tales for the NES. When I heard you play as old man, Scrooge McDuck using his cane as a pogo stick... needless to say, that did not sound like a fun game. I cant remember how the hell someone convinced me to try it, but I'm glad they did because its a brilliant game. I do remember that I ended up liking the show because of how amazing the game was. Lauchpad was hilarious and Gizmo Duck was awesome! I ended up looking up some images from back then and as always, my memory of this sweet robotic badass is a lie. Old Gizmo Duck is not so hot.
