GOTY | Number 7 — Pikmin 3

One of the most antic­i­pated releases for the Wii U this year, this game deliv­ered on the promises it made. Strat­egy and explo­ration are the name of the game for Pik­min 3 and the new visu­als and added fea­tures made for improve­ments all around. With some new vari­ety of the tiny crea­tures and a struc­ture that does away with the over­all time-limit of the game, this made for a very fresh-feeling experience.


New game modes, includ­ing the abil­ity to finally play some mul­ti­player, added even more depth and fun to the series. It was great fun to coor­di­nate plans ahead of tack­ling the col­lec­tion and enemy-battling stages. The com­pet­i­tive mode was also a great deal of fun and had some clever twists to keep the game feel­ing fair. Def­i­nitely a must-own if you have a Wii U and very deserv­ing of its num­ber 7 spot on my top 10 list.
