The Last Guy was largely overlooked on PlayStation Network, which is a shame. The game's simple but challenging arcade-style structure was a breath of fresh air on the PlayStation 3 when it was released back in 2008.
For those that haven't played it, The Last Guy is a classic Pac-Man-style maze game with a Google Maps twist. You run around real-life maps of various locations from around the world, rescuing civilians from the Purple-Zombie-Apocalypse. The more people you rescue, the longer your trail of human followers becomes. That can make it easier to rescue more people, but it also makes you an easier target. Stealth elements and a Katamari-style spirit of growth are topped off by a soundtrack that sounds almost exactly like Popcorn by Hot Butter. Now that's my idea of a good videogame.
