Psychonauts PS2

Psychonauts PS2
After a decade toiling for George Lucas — and creating the classic PC adventure Grim Fandango — Tim Schafer launched his own company Double Fine. Their first effort is Psychonauts, originally an Xbox-only title until Microsoft decided it was too "niche.” Though graphically a little weaker than the other versions, it’s otherwise the same game — a hilariously bizarre and insanely creative twist on the platformer genre. As Rasputin, the player goes to a summer camp for Psychonauts and various levels take place inside a different person’s mind where Raz must use his newly-learned psychic powers to battle inner demons and sort emotional baggage. Undoubtedly the most surreal game to ever involve merit badges. (Double Fine/Budcat Creations/Majesco)
