I loved Bastion but how it can win over Minecraft is puzzling to me. Bastion is one of the best action RPGs with great audio.

Minecraft is a revolution in video gaming that has created a cultural phenomenon. About half my high school students talk about it and exchange strategies between classes— male and female. Bastion is great and all but Ive never seen such a small developer (notch/mojang) make such a big phenomenon since Angry Birds in 2009. It has 16million accounts and 4million sold, has won dozens of awards and is even being displayed at the Smithsonian.
