Rikitatsu  +   2525d ago
"While they weren't what they used to be"
Empire: Total War
Virtua Fighter 5
Yakuza 3
Valkyria Chronicles
House of The Dead overkill
Madworld
Yakuza Kenzan

They are not the SEGA we knew alright, but They are doing better than Square Enix, Namco, And other companies no one Bash.

Also, I agree with Panzer Dragoon, But Shenmue should have taken the first!

Panzer Dragoon is a masterpiece especially Orta.

I would have selected Shining Force as well

Shinning Force (The numbered ones, not the crap they put out now)
Shinobi
Skies Of Arcadia
Sonic
Nights

Of course Sega let most of these die or turned them into crap. I also really wish someone would release Shinning Force 3 Part 2 and 3 in the US either as a download or compilation disc.

Sega aren't what they used to be? Well maybe but you could say that platform gaming isn't what it used to be to some extent ever since the concentration moved from 2D to 3D games (even though there have been some great 3D platform games they often very different from the tight ideas and execution in 2D games).

When Sega were creating great games like Virtua Tennis, Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio and releasing them on the Dreamcast, not enough people bought that console.

When they gave away Jet Set Radio Future on the Xbox, many of the Xbox crowd didn't want it.

Super Monkey Ball seemed to be a relative hit, at least on the Cube, but I don't think that Outrun 2 was remembered well enough.

So Sega might also say a lot of videogame players aren't what they used to be.

I recently played a Sega arcade game called 'Let's Play Jungle', released in 2006, which was great fun, if reminiscent of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

DAMN YOU SEGA!!! WAKE THE HELL UP!!!
They have a massive presence in the Arcades and name Recognition !!
Why are they so out of it!! they will soon fade if they dont capitalize on these games!!

Sega is or was the "Marvel" of video games..
Meaning Marvel comics.
They have the most influential titles and franchises EVER!!!
if Sony could take them under their wing or Microsoft ??
they could invest in specific Titles and max the hardware out like they used to!!!

SEGA was and IS video Games, now they are a 2 bit dev house that takes low risk !!
Shenmue was Masssive and phenomenal,so was Panzer Dragoon, So was The racing games they made! along with being the only Game system to have a perfect 10 game ever (Soul Calibur)

Why are industry leaders and consumers so fughghking ignorant to this??
Sega is gaming! but where are they??
Yu Suzuki where are your students?????
your team AMx???

The first company to use Polygons now can't even do a descent graphical masterpiece??
Like their last which to me was House of the dead 4 on PS3 like arcade hardware..
Nothing looks this good not even Killzone2..
