    Superhot is a first person shooter where time moves only when you move. There is no life regenerating bars,  and no ammo drops during the walkthrough in the game. It's just you, as a character,  outnumbered and outgunned by your enemies and you must grab their falling weapons to make way through the game using bullet-time to dodge bullets and to attack your enemies.

    Free- $24.99

    "Superhot is high energy game that simple but highly interactive. You don't get bogged down with things like regenerating bars and ammo drops. It's face paced. You have to think fast and stay moving. The art is simple just like the game so you can focus on your task and not get bogged down by insignificant details. Definitely a great way to pass this summer."

    "The breadth of the game genres that I enjoy is great. If I were to recommend a first person puzzle platformer, I would say the newest and most innovative is Portal by Valve. The game has all of the traditional FPS elements with a few unexpected bits that really make this game stand out from the crowd."

    "I had never played a game like Mirror's Edge before it bought it, and I have yet to play another game like this franchise after. I love how there are multiple ways to solve the same runs. The game is a bit short, but the replay value is there!"

    "The sequel to the rabidly popular Portal, Portal 2 builds on the formula the original created: make puzzles, make them hard, and make them fun. While it does run on FPS mechanics, there's really no "shooting" involved. It's a good puzzle game, though!"

    "Although this is an FPS game for PC, it is quite the opposite of innovative, having the same things that have been seen over and over in the genre for the last 20 years."

    "This is by far one of the best games out there! There are islands to explore, pirates, mystery, exotic animals to hunt, and lots of action! I love that I can customize the weapons, skills and approach to each mission. The graphics are second to none, and there are also lots of fun mini games too! "

    "I have had so many long nights playing Rust, alone and with friends, and every time is an intense experience. I have met nice people, hostile people, and various nervous in between folks, and each encounter is exciting and nerve-wracking. It's so fun to build up my inventory and arsenal, knowing it could be taken away at any second! Really fun game to play with friends, but I highly recommend trying to make it on your own as well."

    "I find it odd that a solution to a problem asking for an "innovative" product would include the third sequel in a series. I see nothing in the link that would imply innovation here, and honestly the description makes it sound quite the opposite ("...set just after the events of Modern Warfare 2..."), like it's simply a continuation of the previous entry."
