Remembering the current-gen games you already forgot

From a launch title like Perfect Dark Zero to the recent Fuse, these are the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 games that no one else will bother talking about. (Blue Dragon, Fuse, Ghostbusters : The Video Game, Haze, Heavenly Sword, Lair, Perfect Dark Zero, PS3, Rage, Xbox 360)

Man ... Blue Dragon happened that one time.
mattdillahunty  +   678d ago
Blue Dragon is one of the best values (as far as hours played per dollar) that i've ever come across in any game. i bought it on amazon for a few bucks, and i spent over 100 hours on it. leveled up all my characters, maxed everything out, then beat it. sure, it was pretty by-the-numbers, like the article said, but i got more than my money's worth with it.

How can anyone forget Heavenly Sword? Best villian ever: Andy Cerkis just rocked in that one !
Sadie2100  +   678d ago
Wow, I forgot about most of these! Blue Dragon for sure. And Heavenly Sword! So many hyped games here.

Rage could've been so much better than it turned out.

Great combat system, great world, awful story arc and ending.

Trigun the Game, almost.

I thought Rage was pretty good, I enjoyed the game and combat, the story was OK but the ending is what doomed it.

I've passed by many GameStop bargain bins with copies of Perfect Dark Zero in them. Thought I'd pick it up out of curiosity, but then I remember there are way too many other games that actually deserve my time =p

It's hard playing older games, mainly because the controls weren't perfected. You have to really spend time with them to get the hang of them all over again. Case in point Crackdown.

I remember when it first came out I was all into it. I picked it up again recently to try and get all the achievements.......... the first hour or so was pissing me off because it just felt weird. I hadn't played it in years though. I focused on just playing that game and now its back to second nature again.

Its strange how that happens.

Most games that come out today practically play themselves for you. I feel like it's harder to go back to older games but usually more rewarding once you get used to it.

Who's forgotten Heavenly Sword when its brought up almost every time the dev who made it has a new project?

Also it should be noted that many of these games were launch window titles. Should serve as reminders that launch window games aren't all that. That they often have flaws if not short life spans. Get forgotten because new titles are always right behind them.

I'm trying to spread the word......

Bioshock infinite is 9.99 on amazon (steam)
Arkham Origins is 49.99 with 10.00 amazon credit and free mortal kombat arcade (steam also)

Just want to spread the word on game deals when I can.

Also (for those interested) Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, and Modern Warfare 3, are bundled for 34.99 (PC also).

Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey

Why you forgot about them: Because they came out exclusively for the Xbox 360.

Those are the kinds of games that would have been lauded on the PS3 early this gen, but because they were 360 exclusives, they didn't get much attention.

Perfect Dark Zero looked like total trash.
ambientFLIER  +   677d ago
Um, no. It looked good for a launch title.
TheOneEyedHound  +   678d ago
Only Perfect Dark Zero...... I want Folklore 2!!!!!!!
coolbeans  +   678d ago
-Perfect Dark Zero, Heavenly Sword, RAGE

-Haze and Lair

Those five titles had at least one defining aspect to them that will make me never forget them--for better or worse.

Lost Odyssey is so underrated. Just like a lot of other RPG's.
xxV0rschlaghammer  +   678d ago
Them mentioning Kameo under the whole PD:Z/Rare part is annoying, Kameo is actually a really good game if you enjoy platformers, I thought it was great, would buy a sequel instantly if it was released.
coolbeans  +   678d ago
Indeed. To be honest, I've actually been rather impressed Rare's offerings that I've had a chance to play. I consider both PDZ and Kameo to be great for their time.

They're definitely not as great as they used to be, but who could honestly keep up with a record such as golden as that 1990-2000 season?

I absolutely loved Ghostbusters. One of the better movie-video games.
