6. "Child of Light" (UbiSoft) This came out last year, but I just got around to playing it. Watercolor graphics, a lovely score, and charming characters make this odd fairy tale one to remember. You're a princess looking for her lost father, twisting the stereotype just enough to refresh it. "Child of Light" is another turn-based role-playing game, but it's whimsically written in loose iambic pentameter. Combat is familiar, but with a simple hook—an "initiative meter" clocks your next turn. Attack carefully because a poor choice could knock you back and turn the fight in your enemy's favor. I love this game despite my aversion to whimsy, that's how stunning the graphics, characters, and environments are. If you're interested in strategy RPGs, start with this beautiful tale. It's also perfect for kids.
