Ten Underappreciated Gaming Gems of 2013 I Spike.com

It happens every year: somewhere on the store shelves, or buried in the digital marketplaces, hidden behind the Maddens and the Call of Dutys, underneath the Assassin's Creeds and the Grand Theft Autos, are great games that don't get the recognition they deserve. It's an unfortunate inevitability of the gaming industry that sees so many games get released each week. Not every title can get the mainstream spotlight (or the marketing budget) of the AAAs from the big publishers, but that doesn't mean that they are any less engaging or enjoyable. Now that the dust has settled on all of the releases of 2013, it's the prime time time to go back and enjoy some of this year's best unsung heroes. (3DS, Culture, DmC: Devil May Cry, Lego: City Undercover, Picross e, Picross e2, Picross e3, PS Vita, PS3, SteamWorld Dig, Wii U, Xbox 360)

DmC was a mess and not because of the fanbase, purely the devs over cockiness and poor development ideals but the rest of the list was good.

I see you are still butt hurt lol

I see you didn't read a bit of my comment and butthurt by facts.

I did not want to support the Development team mainly, as they are a bunch of over righteous A-holes.

Ninja Theory should get some interview training. One wrong statement can cause a lot of damage. All their games have been really good but none of them sold really well this gen. Would be a shame if such a talented dev team with so much potential would disband just because some members couldn't shut their mouths when they should've.

I will have to give DMC a try now that I got it for free

It's fantastic.
I_am_Batman  +   610d ago
I'm 6 hours in and I'm having a blast.
Venox2008  +   609d ago
before patch game was easier, plus after some time they released some good DLC as well, like Vergil's Downfall and Palace
Venox2008  +   610d ago
good game, I enjoyed it a lot.. when it got patched :)
I_am_Batman  +   609d ago
What was wrong with it before the patch?
Avengingkinght92  +   610d ago
@DevilVergilX another butt hurt fanboy, I thought all you have gone away lol

DmC was a solid game. Ask anyone who hates it what was wrong and i guarantee 75 percent say the new dante. Cause aside from that, the combat was nice the level designs were cool and the story was average.There have been worse games that didn't get as much hate.
ThanatosDMC  +   610d ago
I disagree. The combat is the worst part of the game. Required zero to full retard skill set.

What's wrong to me is the feel: it doesn't FEEL like DMC. It's not JUST the new Dante, though he certainly does contribute to the overall feeling that it is NOT DMC.
ShaunCameron  +   609d ago
Agreed. Ninja Theory did a rather decent job rebooting an IP that really needed some new life breathed into it. With DMC4, it was showing its age.
DevilVergilX  +   606d ago
Dont forget the dev sh!t talking the fanbase that didnt help either...
PS3gamer4life  +   610d ago
I like dmc it was just easy but it was cool my fav is 3 tho
Ac7iVe  +   610d ago
Wonderful 101 should be on the list
breakpad  +   610d ago
...the problem with the new DmC (and ninja theory) is the their artist team..they are completely untalented and unimagined people , the gameplay mechanics and generally their structure in games are good but when they undertook a game like DmC (which comes from one of the most talented japanese teams in Capcom) their weak spot is obvious ...Dante from a flamboyant hero with good anime characteristics became an over swearing try-to-be cool junkie that fights shapeless artless super grotesque enemies

Best line in gaming history.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   610d ago
Yep DmC for sure. I enjoyed it so much I beat it on every difficulty. I rlly wanted to see where it would go if it had a sequel but, sales and haters killed any chances of that. Story was decent, gameplay was solid, very fitting soundtrack. I rlly didn't mind any of the character changes. It was just a very enjoyable game.
Avengingkinght92  +   610d ago
Agree.
VileAndVicious  +   610d ago
Agreed, I wanted to see a sequel and what would happen next...but alas....

Sure it had its flaws but overall I thought it was quite enjoyable.
TheGrimReaper0011  +   610d ago
Devil May Cry?
Really?
I mean, I thought it was pretty good, but I wouldn't call it a gaming gem. Still pretty fun and while I still think the old Dante is a better character, the gameplay was still pretty fun
Tdmd  +   609d ago
I'm really surprised I haven't seen nobody even mentioning Splinter Cell Blacklist. I'm playing through it right now and I'm in love with it! Definitely among my favorites from 2013! Tomb Raider is another game which isn't getting the attention it deserves - not sure why as it is a masterpiece.

dmc was great
RazMaTaz0121  +   609d ago
DmC was inferior to that of its counterparts.

Story - Massive plot hole. Mundus didnt know about Vergil, but there was a big fat painting of the twins at Spardas house

Combat - 30FPS, less weapons then DMC3, slower then DMC3

Environment - Great environments, i cannot fault it for that.

Enemies - Lacked pure imagination.

Dante - Sucked! I genuinely preferred Vergil in the game.

Overall - 7/10 at best, its a good action, but its no true Devil May Cry game.
