Insomniac Games' Sunset Overdrive can be regarded as something of a cautionary tale: The blistering pace we maintain in our day-to-day lives sometimes causes us to seek sources of energy that don't require us to waste time on sleep. As a consequence, we may consume things we probably shouldn't.

Its colors are riotous and its parkour-heavy combat moves with the speed of a spooked centipede.
