The Top Ten Cult Classics of the Last Generation

Ray Porreca of Entertainment Buddha writes: "Scattered amidst the huge AAA titles and overlooked on store shelves, the past console generation was privy to some tremendous video games that were slept on by the vast majority of gamers. Those who pride themselves on looking past the games with the shiniest bells and whistles were quick to adopt these titles, instantly falling for their often bizarre, yet brilliant charm." (Alan Wake, Bayonetta, Catherine, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, Folklore, Nier, Prey, PS3, Shadows of the Damned, Vanquish, Wii, Xbox 360)

I have 6 of the 10 games on this list and I agree, each one of them are easily some of my favorites games of last gen.

Great List, except I would take Shadows of the Damned off and put Last Story or Mirror's Edge. Shadows of the Damned was plain awful, the other games were all great just not very exposed.

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate anime is also out on Blu Ray and DVD and on the net: ( http://www.youtube.com/watc... ) - link with English subtitles.

Besides Bayonetta, I think Alice: Madness Returns has cult game status written on it as well as Dante's Inferno.

1-Folklore was good but you need to finish it twice kind like Ghost'n Goblin but with different character... thats why i didnt complete it but the game overall are good.

2-Alan Wake is also great and im looking for new remedy title QB.

3-Can not talk about Bayonetta cause its my Fav game last gen .

4-Vanquish was super awesome and challenging for me.

5-Neir had a nice story + Perfect Soundtrack the gameplay wasn't that good to me.

Those are the only games i played gonna check the others =D
