I had Upwords! I think I may still have it somewhere, in fact. I didn't play it that much, but I think that third dimension really adds to the game.
As for my favourite, I can't really say anything other than chess. I haven't played it much recently, but I was the captain of the school team...
I only watched the end of it, but from what I saw, it seemed pretty decent. I wouldn't watch it again, though: Roald Dahl wasn't a massive part of my childhood, so I'm kind of missing out on that nostalgic appeal.
