153D Dot Game Heroes

Via GameOrbs

I'm not a giant fan of 3D Dot Game Heroes, but I think it’s cute. Essentially it’s kind of like a remake of The Legend of Zelda with a little bit of Dragon Quest thrown in for good measure. In terms of gameplay, it doesn’t expand much on the original

except that at full health your sword is gigantic. I prefer a giant screen-encompassing sword to a lightning beam projectile any day. The graphics are very simple, almost Minecraft like, but in a charming way. It actually lets you custom create your own avatar, or you can pick from an astounding list of pre-made ones. Again, it doesn’t really add much to the sub-genre of Zelda as it were, but playing as a shark boy is just kind of cool.
