The Top 7... games that are cheaper than therapy

Got a crippling mental disorder? We've got something to treat it

Depression - LocoRoco

It doesn't matter how low you're feeling, how much pain is in your soul or how dark the path ahead looks. Whether you're clinical or just feeling weepy, you can't look at this and not crack a smile:

Above: D'aww. They're like puppies made of jelly

If LocoRoco's cheery, rolling blobs can make grown editors want to cry tears of joy, just imagine what they can do for you. When things look grim and you need something to convince you that everything's going to be all right, don't go listeining to some CD by the latest crop of guitar-slinging ladyboys who moan about slitting their wrists because their mothers won't let them get tattoos. Just fire this up instead and get happy already, you big wet baby.


After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
