Defense Grid: The Awakening Wins 2008 Game of the Year: Puzzle

Like with most good games, Defense Grid: The Awakening takes only a few minutes to learn, but much longer to master. The seemingly simple concept of defending ground against a hoard of aliens using towers is brilliantly created here, and it’s more than worth the low $20 price whether you need an afternoon distraction or a title that you can take time to really master. It may not be a traditional puzzle game, but it’s the best of the genre in 2008, so the industry better take notice.
