I would recommend "Enslaved: Odyssey to the West". It has a very special spot in my heart! I also really liked Vanquish, Bayonetta and Valkyria Chronicles. I, of course, don't include all the obvious and fantastic AAA games, such as Mass effect, Gears of wars or uncharted....
My suggestions: Retail: Puppeteer Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Catherine Binary Domain Nier Maijin and the Forsaken Kingdom Red Faction: Guerrilla Valkyria Chronicles PSN: Mushroom Wars Shatter Closure Papo & Yo Machinarium Sine Mora Renegade Ops Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Comet Crash Outland
Good list. I loved Catherine, that game is amazing.
As somebody who grew up watching old episodes of The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery, I loved the homage Catherine paid those shows. I'd be pretty happy with an episodic series of games with that theme from Atlus.
Costume Quest - If not for the charming nature of the game (thanks to the dear folks at DoubleFine), it does have a fun battle system.
My ten must play games (in any order): 1. The last of us 2. Borderlands 2 3. Fallout 3 / New Vegas 4. Uncharted 2 5. Dark Souls 6. Catherine 7. Bayonetta 8. Ninja Gaiden 2 9. Red Dead Redemption 10. Lost Odyssey PSN/XBL Arcade: 1. Castle Crashers 2. Alien Hominid 3. Limbo 4. Braid 5. Bastion 6. Journey 7. Super Star Dust HD 8. Cuboid 9. Geometry Wars 2 10. Shadow Complex
I would recommend The Darkness, Heavenly Sword and Folklore.
Ahh I knew I forgot some JRPG's! I'd also say Eternal Sonata.
Eternal sonta was fantastic.
Eternal Sonata was amazing. Definitely under-rated. One of the better JRPG's this generation. I would love to see more games like it in the coming generation.
Thanks guys for the recommendations. I have most of those games already but missing key RPGs which I love.
