5 Games That Deserved Better This Gen

Brash Games writes"It happens every generation; despite great reviews and solid word of mouth, there is always a small selection of utterly fantastic games that, for whatever reason, completely fail at retail. Be it a poorly chosen release window, an overtly high price point or a lack of advertising, these brilliant, often hugely innovative games criminally fall by the wayside". (Child of Eden, Crysis 2, Crysis 3, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, PS3, Punch-Out!!, Shadows of the Damned, Xbox 360)

Darksiders 2 and Binary Domain come to mind.

I could put a lot of games on this list, sadly. I suppose a couple that come to mind are Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (which is critically loved but hasn't sold 1 million copies) and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West which has only sold about 1 million but in my mind is maybe the most under appreciated game this gen - though it is flawed.

Ah that reminds me of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. One of the most underrated and overlooked titles this gen. If you haven't played it check it out.

Great list btw. Vanquish, Spec Ops and Kingdoms of Amalur are all great games in their own right.
