Five Overlooked Current Gen Games

Gamer Euphoria staff member Sean writes:

''For every block buster title than garners high praise and sales there a number of games that fly under the radar. There are plenty of great titles that have plenty to offer but, for numerous reasons, never get the love and attention they deserved. This isn’t the definitive list of the most overlooked games, its merely a look at few of them.'' (Deadly Premonition, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Nintendo DS, PS3, The Club, Wii, WWE All Stars, Xbox 360, Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure)

I really hope that they are remastering Deadly Premonition for the Playstation 3 but I fear that some of the campiness may be lost if it does......

Now if you will excuse me, My can of "the pickles" is getting cold....

I imported that game from Japan, worth every penny.

Not sure we'll ever see Deadly Premonition return :( shame, so much depth within the game!

NIER should be on that list. Have over 100+ hrs put into that game, loved every minute of it.

We would like to point out this is just five games, it's not a definitive list of 'the most over looked', merely a list of 5 gives.

True, no arguing with that

Binary domain and the saboteur for me.

I second both of those The Sabateur i wish somone had told me about earlier, one of my favorite sand box games this gen!

Yeah, everyone I know who played The Saboteur, including myself, liked it. It was a bit repetitive, but it had enough going for it to make it a good play... sadly, it was the last outing for Pandemic.

I also think Red Faction Armageddon was an overlooked game. I really enjoyed it for the $15 I paid for it new.

Another IMO is 3D Dot Game Heroes. It was a perfect homage to The Legend of Zelda and 8 - 16bit era RPG's. Love that game.

Definitely Mafia 2, at least in my opinion I like mob stories.
GamerEuphoria  +   1036d ago
Really enjoyed Mafia 2, had a great feeling to it throughout, bar the few bugs here and there
