Think Portal 2 is the best game of 2011 thus far? Screw that noise. Blown away by the revolutionary technical feat that is LA Noire? That’s baby stuff. Hands down, the best video game to come out this year, in perhaps the last 10 years, is Sissy’s Magical Ponycorn Adventure. Developed by a 5-year-old girl named Cassie, SMPA is the mind-bending, next-evolutionary-step the gaming world has been crying out for. Also, it has PONYCORNS!!! (if you don’t know the difference between a ponycorn and a pony or unicorn you can just pack your shit and leave) You say you like your games with lots of realism? This shit is as real as it gets. Too real for yo’ punk ass, right ladies?
Yeah, the art design is a little rough around the edges. Lay off, she’s 5 years old! What we’re you doing at 5? Eating poo, that’s what. And it wasn’t even always your poo. Besides, the messy artwork is totally intentional and serves as critique of gaming’s current obsession with pounding so much verisimilitude into games that they erase all semblance of character and idiosyncratic style.
Go and play this sucker now. Actually, you might want to get your affairs in order first because this game WILL DESTROY YOU.
