Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.
The first time I played Scribblenauts was at the Warner booth at E3 in 2009. E3 is awful, and it stood out like a ray of golden light, emitted from a tiny DS station hidden behind their booth proper. Word of mouth saw journalists nudging each other to go check it out – this little impossible miracle of a game, where anything you typed in would appear, animated, in the game. No one believed it, everyone came away in awe. The game – it wasn’t so great. The magic – it was breathtaking.
By the time the series reached PC, it had figured out how to be a good game too. That was Scribblenauts Unlimited.
