Hidden Game Gems: Episode 1

The Xbox 360, Wii and PS3 generation has produced some great games, but not all of them got the attention they deserve. Hidden Gems is a (hopefully) multi-episode series dedicated to highlighting some of the lesser known quality games of this generation. Please enjoy. (Driver: San Francisco, Nier, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4)

It's certainly a great game that many people simply didn't get the chance to play.

Myst  +   979d ago
There is a reason for that.

Sonyslave3  +   979d ago

She was actually a hermaphrodite before the possession. The game hints at this with little comments from NPCs when she was a little girl saying things like "You're not a real girl, and stuff like that."

Is that actually official art? You don't actually see a bulge in Nier do you?

Also I imagine El Shaddai will be featured on this at some point. Playing it right now. Great music and trippy visuals.

There's a real reason why she has the bulge...I'm not kidding.

Oh I know all about it. But you don't actually see the bulge in the game do you? That'd be pretty ballsy of Square Enix... (or dick-sy)
Ser  +   979d ago
I wanna say "no". However, it's been a while since I've played.

@ -Gespenst-

Should have just stuck with the "ballsy" pun. It was subtle and would have went over most people's heads, but the "dick-sy" bit was too overt, taking away from the element of humor.

Everyone should REALLY try Yakuza.
guitarded77  +   979d ago
Maybe not everyone. I think Yakuza players have to have some appreciation for Japanese culture and video games. Sleeping Dogs has mass appeal, but Yakuza is like a fine wine... it takes a connoisseur to appreciate it. Real core/well rounded gamers will love it, but the general population won't get it.

I want Nier now. I have Yakuza, terribly underrated series. A bit hard to get into at first but it's awesome if you give it a fair chance.

I luv Laura Bailey voice as Kaine. She's really awesome.
isarai  +   978d ago
I hold Nier in as high of a regard as ICO and SotC, fucking masterpiece IMO

also Yakuza series is one of the best fucking brawler franchises ever
