Hot Topic: Unique Games

Cathy and Annette talk about the most unique games they have played. For the purpose of this discussion, they are defining “unique games” as, “a game that is one of kind in regard to art, theme, or mechanisms.” Additionally, the game should have been unique at the time it was released. It may have developed clones or sequels in the time since it was released.
