7) HarmoKnight

Released: Nintendo 3DS, 2013

Game Freak is best known for Pokémon, but when the prolific developer sets out to do something different, the results are often very enjoyable. HarmoKnight was one such excursion. Fusing platformer and rhythm mechanics, players guided lead character Tempo by timing his jumps and swings to the beat of the music. Collecting notes, the stages auto-scrolled forward and presented a constantly changing variety of challenges and bosses to overcome. HarmoKnight was a unique music game, and one that hopefully Game Freak comes back to.

    I don’t really like music games… but have to admit this list has a lot of quality software on it.

    My only complaints:
    * Donkey Konga and Mario DDR were great ideas but Nintendo needed more remixed NES tracks and fewer public domain songs thrown into the mix
    * Rock Band 2 should be replaced by The Beatles Rock Band (not because Rock Band 2 is bad, but because The Beatles version is just that awesome)
