As people close the book on 2008 here's one last look back at 20 games you should have played but, if you believe the sales numbers, probably didn't.
12. Valkyria Chronicles Platforms: Xbox 360 Nuff sed
18. Motorstorm: Pacific Rift Platforms: Xbox PS3 I have both VC and MSPR. Two damn fine games I'm glad I didn't miss out on.
On the 360???? WELL NO DUH THEY MISSED IT, WRONG PLATFORM.
LOL at OP
was the only one I missed that I should have purchased....
MS PR is the best racing game ive ever played
i'll be getting it.
bourne conspiracy was a great game that was way under the radar
Poor SE, all their original games get neglected. It has two games on this list as well. I bet if Chocobo Dungeon didn't have Final Fantasy in front of it it would have got even less sales.
And yet No More Heroes and Robocalypse are getting sequels, while other games thar sold comparable amounts are causing the collapse of development companies. I'd say that goes to show that the definition of "flop" is more about money spent vs. money earned than simply the number of units sold.
So true, which is why I think it's right for the Wii not to be HD because it lowers the risk of potential flops. It also means if a quality game like No More Heroes doesn't sell that well it can still get a sequel, something that likely wouldn't happen on the Next Gen consoles.
