The Top 10 Most Unique Games | Empty Apartment

"There is a large pool of awesome and unique games that we miss out on all the time. Remembering those games and cutting some out of this list sucks.

We live in a generation of gamers that declares there is nothing new or unique in games. So many people claim that we just get the same crap over and over, which is true in a lot of instances. But there are so many great choices out there. Some may be older games, but there are plenty of games that are very unique that are just hiding under all the high end titles. All the Triple A, blockbuster hits are burying so many good games and have been doing so for a long time now. The trend isn’t new in any way. It’s just depressing that the games that take a risk and do something new or interesting are separated and tucked away to be cult classics or sleeper hits.

Naturally, the games with a crazy marketing strategy and lots of money to go towards that strategy will fare much better than the games that don’t. I just wish some of the people who made the bold, unique titles could make more money so we could see more from their creative minds.

Anyways, let’s get on to my list. Here are my top ten most unique games that I have ever played." (Child of Eden, Dark Souls, Demon's Soul, Digital Devil Saga, Journey, Nintendo DS, PS2, PS3, Retro, Shadow of the Colossus, The World Ends With Ends, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Unique means one of a kind. Nothing can be more or less unique than something else.

It's either unique or it's not.

It can also mean things like "not typical" or "unusual". In my eyes, none of the games on my list are "typical".

That's why this is an opinion piece.

I agree with the list. But there is one glaring omission: Flower. How many other games let you play as Wind? That's about as unique as these things come.
