As with Snakebird before it, there are some games which you play, you experience, and you set aside. In the case of Olympia Rising my metric is this game cost me as much as a pair of chocolate bars, and I definitely got to have more fun with it than I would have out of a pair of chocolate bars.
There’s your really basic point: Olympia Rising is almost perfectly $5 of videogame.
Sometimes a game gets on the list just because it’s interesting looking! Wanna know more about that? Well, let’s see what we got.
