Overlooked Gaming Gems of this Generation

Hands down this generation had some of the best games in several generations. Looking back, gamers will talk about RROD, YLOD, PS+, Xbox Live, the Wii and motion controls, Kinect, and the games that made this generation. Games such as the Halo series, the Uncharted series, Dishonored, Skyrim, Mario Galaxy, Skyward Sword and the list goes on and on. But what about those non-AAA games like Wet, Spec Ops The Line, Bulletstorm, El Shaddai, Mirror's Edge and so many more. If gamers can look past the reviews, there might be something there worth playing here. (Bulletstorm, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning, Mirror's Edge, PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360, Yakuza: Dead Souls)

Some of those games named in the article were pretty bland to be honest.

For me, I felt the following games to be overlooked:

Singularity (Lets get through the fact that the online is terrible, but really though. The campaign was a ton of fun! It was suspenseful and had great storytelling like bioshock)

Resistance 3 (For those who want an FPS that is different from the norm, this game was made for you)

Saboteur.

"NIER and Valkyria Chronicles [...] deserve a nod as well."

Not just a nod. Those games are marvelous, they deserve a standing ovation !! But okay you're right, they're pretty well known games. Still, Nier is very underrated, for reasons I just can't understand. I thought this game was a truly unique experience. Flawed indeed, but unique.

Agreed on both of these. Among my favorites this generation, both of them. Nier's gameplay wasn't exacty special, but everything else about it was astounding. And Valkyria Chronicles simply shone.

agreed, especially Nier this game was amazing, it had amazing music, characters, story and cinematics, not to forget other games like Resonance of Fate, Fragile Dreams, Shadows of the Damned, Binary Domain..everyone need to experience these games!
