If there was one game everyone was talking about at PAX 2009, it was Shank. The 2D HD beat 'em up had nearby PAX attendees mesmerized by its Aladdin-esque visuals. There's nothing else like it on the floor of PAX, which makes the studio's decision to show off the game -- a decision they weren't sure about until the crowds started flipping out for their game -- such an amazing one. If you are at PAX, go play Shank. If not, think about why you should!
