The 5 games you must play before you die

Games come and go and every so often some get missed or are played but are not spoke about enough. Here I have put together 5 games I think don’t get the recognition they deserve, I’ll leave it up to you to decide if you agree or not. (Dark Chronicle, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, GameCube, Ikaruga, Kula World, PS2, PS3, Retro, Ristar, Xbox 360)

Oh man! I didn't know anyone else even remembered Ristar!

Always wanted to play Enslaved too :)

<Spoiler> It isn't "must play" good. In fact, it's kinda average. </spoiler>

Enslaved is a really good game, great on emotion and character, gameplay is solid and fun, and the presentation is beautiful

Try the demo before you play.

I also really liked Enslaved. I honest wasn't expecting much from all the reviews but when I picked it up I was really surprised. It was great.

I love enslave i still owned great finale u should play it
edenianrain  +   562d ago
Okay ive played roster and enslaved but imho, none if the you have to play before you die

Ristar was a really good platforming but,its not something you gotta play before you die.

Enslaved was okay,prince of persia sands of time/2008, or ico came before it,had a very similar concept,and in my opinion did it way better.

I wouldn't put any of those titles on an "absolute must play" list. Even Balder's Gate 2 would be an honorable mention at best.
cpayne93  +   562d ago
Yeah definitely. None of them are what I would call the best of the best. Mine would be:

Metal Gear Solid
Super Mario 64
Demon's Souls
Legend Of Zelda: Link to the Past
Conker's Bad Fur Day

Those are just my favorites.
admiralvic  +   562d ago
While Conker might not be the best game ever made, it's certainly one of the most memorable.
cpayne93  +   562d ago
^Yeah and there really isn't any other game like it.
Myst  +   562d ago
Dammit! I see Dark Chronicle on there...I hope I still have my disc lying around here somewhere...
smashcrashbash  +   562d ago
Are you kidding? Where is Okami, Viewtiful Joe 2, God Hand and Psychonauts? You at least have to put Okami in there.Anyone that didn't play that game was seriously missing out. It still baffles me to this day how that game could have sold so little.

Haunting ground and Robot alchemic drive on ps2.
Project gotham racing 2 and Crimson skies on Xbox.
resident evil remake and Eternal darkness on GameCube.
Shenmue, power stone and Skies of arkadia on dreamcast.
Super mario 64, wave race 64, zelda oot, conker's bad fur day on N64.

There's just way too many games for a top 5 list of this kind.
More like a top twenty list before you die :)

I loved all of these games, but I wouldn't put any of them on a "must play before you die" list. I would, however, put Odyssey to the West on a "must read before you die" list. (The book Enslaved is based off of)

Mine:

1) Shadow of the Colossus
2) Heavy Rain
3) Minecraft
4) Earthbound
5) God of War III
6) Penumbra/Amnesia
7) Half-Life 2 w/episodes
8) Metal Gear Solid 1-4
9) Indigo Prophecy
10) Uncharted 2

This isn't my list of favorite games, but they represent what I think are the most significant experiences you can have with video games.
juandren  +   562d ago
Metal Gear Solid is my favourite game series of all time. You need genius-level intellect to tell head from ass of the story, but somehow Kojima makes it so it doesn't even matter. You can feel the emotions of the characters so much in MGS4 that it feels like you have been on the entire journey with them and are drawn completely into their world. Kojima not becoming a Hollywood director like he dreamed of has spawned a series that will stand the test of time (at least the original story). Thank you, Mr Kojima. We salute you

I don't like outdated games. I don't know why, it just feels like I am talking a step back. The farthest I would go back is PS2 era. Maybe I'm just not a "true" gamer. Off-topic - I really hope to see a "50 games to play this gen" list near the end of this generation. I would buy an Xbox just to complete that list (I sold mine end of 2011)
Oh_Yeah  +   562d ago
Out of this gen.. Top 10 must plays.. I'd say Skyrim, Fallout New Vegas, Dead Space 2, Uncharted 3, Red Dead Redemption, Sleeping Dogs, Dark Souls, God of War 3, Borderlands 2, and Far Cry 3.

Just as long they find me in my chair with a cool game on, my cold dead finger still shooting, hacking or slashing. Online would be best.

Lost Odyssey... enough said.
TheOneEyedHound  +   562d ago
These are Imo the games you should play before you die.

Metal Gear Solid Series
Final Fantasy 7
