CC: This year's has been brilliant for videogame releases with Uncharted 2, Modern Warfare 2 and Batman Arkham Asylum all making an impression on consoles. However some games didn't even make a dent, and turned into forgotten souls.
Good list, not surprised by any of them being in there. I actually completely forgot about Godfather II and Afro Samurai. I only remember Il-2 and Wolfenstein because they weren't released too long ago.
Surprised that a game with Samuel L. Jackson involved didn't do better :/
Afro Samurai's demo was amazing to me. I was/am disappointed in the lack of trophy support for the game cause even thought it had none on launch they still could have patched trophies in by now. Regardless, I really enjoyed the feel and presentation in the demo and this should hopefully be in my Christmas stocking this month.
Those games weren't on my radar at all
I would have said:
Godfather 2 definately
Call of Juarez
Fight Night Round 4
The Godfather II and Afro Samurai were both fantastic games in my book. Dunno why reviews slammed it so hard. Mine would be: The Godfather II - excellent Afro Samurai - excellent Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood - really excellent Wet - nice fun little game Darkest of Days - was NOT as bad as reviews made it out to be
They were all mediocre games.
There's a lot more I could choose than that, but they are long and gone really.
I would have added 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand and Damnation
It's amazing that Wolverine wasn't completely awful on the PS3/360, considering it's a licensed product.
Wolfenstein and X-Men Origins: Wolverine are on my shelf. The others I must admit that I have already forgotten...
I sold Wolfenstein after a week. Got sick of the colour blue.
heh heh he said colour
I bought Wolfenstein but it's still in the wrapper.Now it's buried in a sea of better games.Once IL 2 Strumovik hits $20.00 I'll buy it. The demo was really good.
il2 sturmovik is amazons deal of the day TODAY ONLY! $27 for 360 and ps3 i got it for $11 with a $15 gift card and the free shipping
That IL-2 one is funny.
Afro Samurai was an very good game. The soundtrack was excellent!
These games were forgotten because they were poor if you do a list like this look for cult games none of these were cult games. Game's like Little King Story,Demon's Souls or Machinarium are ture forgotten games
IL-2 Sturmovik is a great game, thinking about reinstalling it again.
Has anyone seen my stats yet?
mm afro samurai indeed , well what can be said ? People got some weird habit to simply assume anime games are crappy regardless of the actual quality of the job done . i dont even know how it performed in japan , but my guess is , given the franchise was mostly popular in the west , it didnt make a big dent . Wolfenstein however kinda deserved its fate and asked for it . If you're going to do a standard fps , make it pretty . Every generic pc shooter of the quake 1-3 engine era , outdid themselves in the graphics department .
IL-2 is the only one worth rediscovering.
Wolfenstein and Afro where great. Loved them both.
and left 4 dead 2
You mean games that all individually sold over 1 million units in the first month of release? Games like Halo Wars, Forza 3, and L4D2 which were so successful that they earned DLC and were able to earn spots on the top 10 most played games while connected to Xbox Live list all while receive critical praise?
Yea, forgotten flops indeed...
where my HALO WARS STATS MUTHA FUçKAS!?
the Anime was awesome, and I really did enjoy the demo!
...Bionic Commando? I actually find it to be quite fun. Spiderman: Web of Shadows may also appeal to Spidey fans. I also liked the demo of WET.
All of those were pretty decent games.
