Okay, I do not own a Nintendo Wii system (But I play my friends all the time), so I have NO idea what BIT. TRIP is. Youtube and Wiki did not help. I need to have like a description or something about each game. Because many people say "Flux" is there favorite game of all time, so please help BIT. TRIP fans!

They're a bunch of retro style games. Here's a brief description of the ones I've played.

Beat: Imagine Pong with only one paddle and you've got the right idea. Very rhythm based.

Runner: You run down a path to get to the goal while collecting gold bars and plus signs and avoiding obstacles. Avoiding obstacles usually involves running, jumping and sliding. Getting hit by something sends you back to the start. My personal favorite of the series.

Fate: A scrolling shooter like R-Type or Gradius. Your character can only move along a line though so this makes the game harder. You get extra hit points by killing enemies and collecting plus signs. There's also powerups to collect.

It's one of the greatest series ever created. All six games together tell the story of a human life, from the very beginning, all the way to the end. The series also has an awesome soundtrack, colourful, trippy visuals, and challenging retro gameplay.

I bought Flux and played it about 1/2 hours. Never returned to it. All of the Bit Trip games seems to be really simple, so if extreme simplicity combined with a spot on playability is your thing, go for it. I just think they're not worth the cost in this day and age.
Edit: Bit Trip Saga for 3DS instead seems to be well worth it, since it includes all 6 Bit Trip games.

That's mostly just me. :P

Basically, the series is a testament to simple, difficult, and incredibly rewarding game design as well as human feelings and emotion. It can and is mostly enjoyed on the surface level of super-fun arcade score-attack gaming, but there is so much more to it for those that look for it.

FLUX is pretty much my favorite game ever because it has emotionally invigorated me and helped me deal with real life situations like no video game ever has.

No drugs, just practice. The game just eventually "clicked" with me and I understood it. It was so cool.

Bit.Trip is just, awesome. I recommend googling it and watching some videos if you want to get an idea of what it is like.

'Runner' is the only essential one in terms of 'must have another try'. The rest are retro fan-boy wankfests with some admittedly stylish looks and sounds.

I started gaming in 2007, so I have nothing to do with retro gaming. I can assure you that I liked all of the BIT.TRIP games.

@Badger Tell that to Metacritic and a lot of gamers on this very site.
@invmat Agreed.

@SKTTR Perseverance mostly. And understanding the patterns or "clicking" as Paperclip said.

RUNNER's my personal favorite, but I also highly enjoyed FATE. I've played the demo for BEAT, CORE, and FLUX, but I didn't enjoy those as much. With practice I know I would though. The games have a high emphasis on score and music, both of which I enjoy and keep me coming back to them months afterwards.

P.S. While on the subject, let me put up this video of the godly Terry Garret. This man is blind and relies on sound design in video games to play them, and he's GREAT. He's a serious inspiration :)
