10 X360 Games that were Unfairly Ignored

From gameplayer... "Over the coming pages we are going to take a look at some of the Xbox 360 games that launched in the console's infancy boasting great features, but may never get a second bite at the cherry because of the reasons stated above. Games that may have blown their wad too early, when they should have held off and waited for their technological know-how to match their vision."

Yeah I generally ignore mediocre games.

wAtdaFck3947d ago

Dead Rising was FAR from mediocre.

Though, a lot of the PS3's games have also been unfairly ignored. Folklore being a huge one.

ceedubya93946d ago

Dead Rising is a great game with minor design flaws. I agree with what you say about Folklore, I plan on playing that game, but i've been holding off for a while now.

MADGameR3946d ago

But who's fault is that?? 360FANBOYS for overhyping Halo 3 and Gears of War! Thats all they ever talked about! So now people are complaining...waaa waaa

Overlord, is awesome. bit different but new and fresh, as to how it plays. Definitely will be a sequel if produced.

Grown Folks Talk3946d ago

You must not be talking about the people on this site. 9 out of 10 times either of those games are mentioned outside of an article directly relating to them, it's a Sony fan claiming that it's all Xbox gamers care about. I know personally, neither of them were ever my most anticipated title. Flagship titles or flagship hopefuls get pushed. Metal Gear gets pushed, the 1200 variations of games with Mario get pushed, GTA gets pushed. It's the nature of the industry.

You are right, DR is far from mediocre. Back in November 2006, DR was THE reason why I bought my XBOX 360 (That, and the fact that I was not able to get a PS3). I have to admit that the fact that it came with GOW was a plus, but I had (and still have) MUCH more fun with DR than with GOW thought. DR is also the one of the reason why I still have my XBOX 360. Sometimes, I would gladly sell this box, but DR and some XBOX Live games stop me from doing it. Since I got my PS3 3 weeks after my 360, I could live without my 360 because since November 2007, I almost only play with my PS3.

Yes, I'm a fanboy, what can I say? I prefer my PS3 instead of my 360 and my Wii. But my fanboyism is base on a legitimate choice: since I CAN compare for real.

Shadowrun should be there somewhere.

I didnt care to play crackdown.. but i dont see why dead rising was on that list. and prey was not really noticed but it was a very cool game it was tripy and fasinating.

BloodySinner3946d ago (Edited 3946d ago )

Funny you mention that. I saw that in the bargain bin at Wal-Mart back in December. I picked it up for $10.

wow4u3946d ago

I always flip through the bargain bin at game retailers, just for this reason. There are many games that I know I'd like to play, and wont have time to get through them 100%.

For those games, I try and grab them used or in the sale-rack. That way I can add them to my library to play as it comes to me, or to give it a try.

The First game I ever played on teh 360... In my book its still one of my top 5 favorite next gen games.
Condemned 2 has my attention more than anything else right now.

Folklore.... I seemed to be the only one hyped for that game before release. And IMO it was well worth my time.

I wouldnt of wanted too miss out on either of these games.

As for the list of games in this article.
I agree with them all except OverLord... While it has its moments I just couldnt get into it.

Jdash243947d ago

played or owned all of the except for the outfit, though test drive was the demo

sold gun and prey, still got dead rising though

GameOn3946d ago

I understand why so many people dont like it but i think its great.
i really like the tactical side like how u can drop in weapons and armour but the graphic do suck.

It a great game for split screen versus cos there can b 2 of ya and it will be a big battle.

Its a shame they arnt going to bring out a new one because this game has gr8 potential that largely went un-noticed.

FirstknighT3947d ago

Most of those games sold over a million copies.
