Good list of games, I'm surprised Sleeping Dogs hasn't sold more, it seems solid with a dedicated PC version too.

It is a good list, I played everything except Spec Ops, and enjoyed each game. We can probably add the new Sherlock Holmes game to the list. A $40 budget title, and the reviews have been excellent. I really want to pick up a copy when I get some extra cash. Open world murder mystery game has me very interested.

I totally forgot about sherlock Holmes! Gonna check it out!

you know how gamers cry about having too many sequels well get use to it. Because when sleeping dogs sell 116k units on launch that shows the publisher they should not take risk and just release sequels to make money

when a new IP is introduced y'all are the same sheep who go out and buy your favorite sequels than y'all are the same sheep who complain about having so many sequels

the reviews are great and all but with sequelitist dominating the market, new IPs have less space to breath thus they are not underrated but underappreciated!

Rainbow Moon. Frigging amazing people! It's only $15 dollars too. Try the 1 hour demo on the PSN

Good to see someone else loved the game. The only flaw was the voice chat but then again I have a Caribbean accent :P.......

Yea, great game and a keeper to add to the collection! I have a feeling dishonored will be on this list soon. I am waiting for that one!!!

While I agree somewhat with The Darkness 2, I personally thought the first game was better and was more interesting than the sequel. The first game had some lovely touches that set it apart from the rest, I don't think the second game did that.

I've only played three out of the five listed (on PC), but I agree; The Darkness 2, Sleeping Dogs, and The Walking Dead (so far), are all great games. Out of those three, my expectations for Sleeping Dogs was the lowest and I would say it was my favorite!

MWH1813d ago

Darkness 1 was better than 2 in almost every way, even visually.

Xristo1812d ago

Probably so. I never had the chance to play it. :( I've heard many people say the same.
