Every single one of these games is wonderful. I hope everyone gets the chance to play each at some point or another.

Half life and half life 2 for me.
I'll try and get them done before 3 comes out.

I'd set a more realistic goal like...sometime before you die.

A bit controversial, but I keep trying to get through TLoU without success. I adore the setting and story, but something about the mechanics just don't gel with me. Move to a new area > stealth or run around or go in guns (and limited ammo) blazing > cutscene > repeat.

I'll finish the game, eventually. And I'm not contesting its "greatness". The game is polished and pure AAA magnificence. I just don't fancy the flow of it, personally. Question to those who have really sunk into the game. Does the game-play open up later? Or is it essentially what the first three or so hours entail?

The strong points of that game is the storytelling, the gameplay is barely diferent from uncharted in most things the game includes an basic upgrade system for the firing weapons later on but that´s pretty much it the game gets progresivelly harder as you keep moving with plenty of traps and smart enemy AI.

They're listing games like Uncharted, God of War, Mass Effect lol. I think a lot of gamers are aware and has probably played games in those series

Also, if everyone says Psychonauts is underrated, then is it really? I always see that game pop up on lists as an overlooked game yet all these people have played it

This isn't an overlooked games list, they are games that we have personally not gotten the chance to play.

Isn't that the point? I've played 400+ games this generation alone, but still never played a GTA game. It happens.

played them all and beat them all. You need to make time for quality games like those.
