This morning a new screen from PS3 Tokyo Jungle emerged

I think this is a lion facing off with a hyena in a construction hat.

The game is seemingly set in a post apocalyptic world where animals have taken over and you seem to face them off in some sort of fighting game?

It got me thinking about other "great" games and which ones would you nominate for being the best?

My nomination would be Disaster Day of Crisis, that gem of a game that only launched in Japan and Europe.

But it almost doesn't work in this context because it's a decent game aside from the hilarity. So what makes Disaster "special" in the spirit of this thread?

Firstly there is a section where you are attacked by a bear and you can unload a rocket launcher in his face.

There are also sections where you have to waggle furiously as Ray runs away from tidal waves and earthquakes and lava flows. It sounds terrible but if you're not laughing whilst doing it there is something dead inside you.

There is an entire level set in a flooded town with terrorists so you can relive the glory of Hard Rain.

There is not one, but two active volcanoes to deal with in the game.

Remember Ed Harris in The Rock? He's in the game.

You rescue a dog from a tidal wave (think Independance Day) and there are other dogs to rescue from natural disasters too.

Have you ever played a videogame where you drive into the screen like the pic above? In Disaster you do and with tilting motion controls too. If you don't have a ridiculous grin on your face whilst doing this, you're doing something wrong.

Go read my blog on it when I was doing the best 25 games of last year!

This is too lazy to come up with something zany, so I'm going to go with a deadly serious, depressing point and click adventure game about post-natal depression that I played at the musuem. It was fun.

for his child.
We are like a lot of wild
spiders crying together,
but without tears.
