Here are 10 games that prove how rewarding sticking to a console a bit beyond its best-before date can be.
the walking dead: survival instinct
ranger x and gunstrar heroes where a couple of other great games released near the end. And to think it was the same platform that started us off with altered beast. Creative minds find ways to use limitations to their advantage.
what? A great avatar, cool name, and intelligent comment and you still get a disagree... What has the internet come to?
Obvious joke is obvious.
Don't forget Persona 3 and 4 for ps2. And mgs 3 subsistence.
also God of War 2 btw, Okami is great, i still have to buy digital version sometime in the future. sooo many games coming in these days...
To me, it was KHII. It was the second game I ever bought with my own money (1st being Pokémon Emerald). I probably finished the game 5 times in less than a month, and I did another playthrough (on Proud mode) last summer. Was one of the best purchases I've ever made in my life so far. This and Persona 3 were probably the only major PS2 games that released the same year as the PS3 did.
Panzer Dragoon Saga. I will never forget this full page ad Sega put out when the game was released. It featured a cut out paper mask of Edge (the game's hero)and mocked the fact that only 6000 copies were being produced. The mask was for people to wear and pretend they were in the game since it was so hard to get a copy.
Awesome game that very few have played, and the code is lost. Worth getting an emulator setup for. It's in my top 10 actually, within minutes you know it's something special.
It is the pride of my video game collection. I ended up dropping about $175 on a copy 10 years ago. I will never forgive myself for seeing it used at a Funcoland in 1999 for $49. At the time I thought that was too much for a used game.
I guess that's why I like pc, it's been dying the last 20 years .
Good games are just good games. (kinda like your best players are your best players? =P) ..Meaning games like Okami rule. Came out on ps2. Bought it. hd version on ps3. Bought it. ps4 version? ..Would still buy it.
I bought in PS2, PS3 digital and I will buy in Gaikai with PS4, the game is unique.
Okami is pure art, sensibility and fun, a true demonstration that the videogames are art.
It only makes sense, doesn't it? Developers- typically first party- have learned as much as they an about the console. They've come up with new tricks, and are familiar enough with the hardware that developing isn't so much trial and error. Whatever engine they've developed has been refined, whatever quirks the system had are mastered. That's not exactly something that can happen at any time OTHER than a console's twilight.
