A simple Mario-style platformer on the surface, LittleBigPlanet was in actuality a game construction set for the masses. Using a simple pointer-based interface, players could dramatically alter the physics and geometry of any given level quickly and in real-time, even when playing with others. This gave players free reign to build pretty much anything, from an original masterpiece to a tribute to another game. Though the noise far outweighs the signal in terms of downloadable level offerings, LittleBigPlanet's community-centric approach and adorable characters have brought more innovation to the platformer genre than any game since Super Mario Bros 3.
