'Superhot' Superhot Team18/50

18. Superhot

Superhot is a first-person shooter where time only moves when you do, grinding to a halt when you stand still then jerking to life as you fire your gun or move into position. It combines the hurried action of shooters with the considered tactics of turn-based strategy. The minimalist art gets out of the way, communicating everything you need to know to choreograph another set of gun-fu without distraction. The thrill of lining up the perfect shot, then grabbing your enemy's gun, turning it on a second foe, and then hurling it at a third as the ammo runs out is like being in a John Woo movie.
