Five Great Games You Probably Didn't Play in 2013

GodisaGeek: "With all the AAA releases this year and, of course, the launch of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it’s been a difficult 12 months for smaller games – but there have been some absolute gems, particularly in the indie vein. Here’s a quick round-up of five games released this year that we feel you really should have played, but probably overlooked. Add them to your pile of shame, and sort it out." (BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2, Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, Device 6, Guacamelee, Hotline Miami, iPad, iPhone, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Puppeteer, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Why is Hotline Miami on this list? Even my friends who don't game that much wanted to play this. Also, Guacamelee is free on PS+ so most (at least I did) PSVita users played it.

Puppeteer was also a great game but for my taste a bit too childish ...the presentation was a 10/10 but the something was missing to keep me engaged.

Fair comment, but not everyone owns a Vita. Guacamelee is out on PC now, though :-)

I didn't say that Guacamelee or Puppeteer shouldn't be on this list ...I'm just sure that most people played Hotline Miami by now.

TEARAWAY! Its such a amazing game that nobody bought because Sony send it to die in the the next gen console hype. W101 also a great game that didnt get enough love.

Tearaway was pretty much #6 on the list. Incredible game that everyone should play.

i bought tearaway. i will admit i only bought it because it was half price at gamestop. i can say this game is worth $40. hell, even $60. absolutely incredible. anybody with a vita really should get this game. there is a demo for it on the store if anyone wants to try before buy

From memory, I believe one of our guys said on the podcast that it's finally a reason to actually go and buy a vita! :-)
PlayStation_4  +   258d ago
actually, there were quite a few TV ads for Tearaway over in Europe (and likely NA?).

there were many more PS4 ads though
GodisaGeek  +   258d ago
Oh there were, and in the UK they had PS Vita sponsor shows like The Simpsons.

Trouble is, Tearaway is a game you kind of need to play. The advert that was on before The Simpsons actually put off a few people we know!

I'm going to pick Puppeteer up in the next few weeks, been meaning to get it for a while.
GodisaGeek  +   258d ago
It's a nice platformer with an interesting narrative, and some gorgeous visual - not to mention the *incredible* voice work :-)
DoctorJones  +   258d ago
Yeah I've seen a few video reviews for it, as well as the trailer, and it looks excellent, certainly unique.

The launch window it released in was definitely the reason it got missed, all I could think about at the time was GTA so it was off my radar.

Once I've finished off my marathon run through the MGS series I'll be sure to pick it up.

Got Puppeteer along with a few other games this Christmas and despite probably being aimed at a younger audience, I love it! I certainly agree that it is one charming game. I'm on act 6 and I already know I'm going to be going back again to see if I can find all the missing heads. Kinda reminds me of Dynamite Heady. the fabric/paper style of the art is awesome I think and the whole 'production' of a show aspect.

It's refreshing. Witty banter with the over-voice and the lil fairy thing and music by Patrick Doyle brings it to life,(Even downloaded the soundtrack!). It also ended up being longer than I though, 3 more 'Acts' longer so that was a surprise too.

If you got a PS3, definitely pick it up.

I said it in a blog a few days back but I'm really disappointed in the Playstation nation for not supporting Tearway & Puppeteer as much as they should have.

Both these games are so unique & the very definition of a Playstation game that should be in every Playstation gamers library. It is just so sad that 2 such ambitious games with a ton of charm have been generally ignored.

Both these games are deserving to be million sellers & to see them struggling to reach satisfactory numbers is heartbreaking.
