Braid was mu first favorite, so it earns the honors. That said, Half-Minute Hero is a close second I think.
The Walking Dead, easily. It's like watching the show, but the writing is better and it's interactive. I can't wait to play through it a second time and see how making different choices affects the story.
I would have to say minecraft. Castle crashers and crimson alliance were both fun and good games but they haven't had me coming back like minecraft has.
Definitely Super Meat Boy. I have never played a game that has made me more happy. Or angry. I remember it was Christmas eve, and i was on the third to last level, and it was the hardest thing i have ever done. But I was so persistent, I HAD to beat the game before Christmas. I did not beat the game before Christmas, but at 3 am on Christmas morning I beat the level. I died well over 1k times. It was worth it seeing all those little meat boys dying. My favorite gaming moment ever.
The Walking Dead by Telltale Games is amazing in my opinion. There isn't much to the game besides exploring and making decisions but those were the correct aspects to focus on. The things you say to people actually affect how they feel about you and what may happen later in the game. Choosing between two people to save is a surprisingly tough choice because you actually care if these characters live or die. This will also change the story and different game play options open up. Other aspects of the game such as atmosphere and tension are also well realized. The relationship between Lee, the main character, and Clementine is both memorable and believable. I haven't enjoyed a video game this much in a very long time and I suggest anyone who hasn't given it a shot to do so immediately!
Castle Crashers all the way, I was a big Newgrounds fan and I was very excited for their first "big" game (sorry alien homnid)and I am glad to say it in no way disappointed me
