10 September Games You (Probably) Missed Because of Halo: Reach

Ex: "As awesome as Halo: Reach is, a lot of good games came out this month that any real gamer should not miss out on. So, before you rush off into next month to play Fallout: New Vegas and the such, be sure to take a look over this list and make sure you didn't miss out on games you'll later regret not playing." (Civilization V, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, Nintendo DS, PC, Phantasy Star Portable 2, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, PS3, PSP, R.U.S.E., Xbox 360)

IMO, almost all the games on this list deserve more recognition than Halo: Reach. I played it, and I still honestly can't tell what all the fuss is about.

Obvious troll is obvious, you don't have a 360

Reach is overhyped. Sold well 'cause the 12 year olds eat that shit up and you know its the truth. Its just like hip-hop culture and everyone eating that shit up. Reach is a great game but not as amazing as some people like to say it is.

butt hurt that someone didn't think it was "ZOMG AMAZING!!"?

It rode the hype train all the way to town and came up short.

Well, see... I got Halo: Reach and Dead Rising 2 on 360, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep and Phantasy Star Portable 2 on PSP, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future and Pokémon Black (JPN) for NDS.

The only ones I still play are KH: BBS, PSP2, Prof L. and Pkmn Black.

I missed Halo Reach.

I dunno about you guys, but Halo: Reach was the only game I was playing this month. Thought about getting a PS Move, but man, Halo is taking up all my free time these days.

PS Move just doesn't impress me. I'll prob wait for the Kinect instead.

Obvious troll is obvious, you don't have a PS3.

It surprises me how many good games will be overlooked, for now, by a large number of gamers. Thanks to Steam, Civilization 5 and RUSE are still getting *some* hype, but some people won't even consider picking either up any time soon because, yes, they are playing other hyped up games like Halo: Reach. There's also a number of good RPG's that just came out. More of these games will get noticed once the Holiday season nears and people consider picking up more new games, but for now, many won't receive as much attention as they deserve.

There's no doubt that Halo: Reach is a good game for many, but this list is a good eye opener for those who may want to take a break from it and try another good (recently released) game.

There's a good reason why no one else bought anything this month.

1.) Halo: Reach is GOTY --why settle for second best?
2.) PlayStation Move was easily a huge flop --Kincet will dominate it next month, so why waste money on something that's going to die faster than the Virtua Boy?
3.) Everything else sucked in comparison to Halo: Reach.
4.) LOL @ Civilization. Only nerds who have no life waste time with that game. It takes forever to play and then someone just builds a space ship and wins. LAME.

"4.) LOL @ Civilization. Only nerds who have no life waste time with that game. It takes forever to play and then someone just builds a space ship and wins. LAME."

And this is why kids with ADD are the cancer killing gaming.

Also, IMO, Halo: Reach is just an overhyped and overrated shooter. Fun campaign? Yes, but not AWESOME OH MY GOD I'M JIZZING EVERYWHERE THANKS TO HOW AWESOME IT IS ASDASKFA.

So, it will be GOTY by journalists, but it won't be much on my eyes.

About PlayStation Move, I hope Kinect flops as well. Otherwise I'm going to go on a murdering rampage thanks to my favorite hobby dying off.

Fanboyism of this nature sickens me.
wat634  +   1804d ago
The reason birth by sleep was overlooked is because it was another damn spin off.

Reach is the only game I bought and it will be a while before I buy another.
spektical  +   1804d ago
its supposed to be the best "spin off" though.. i played it and its actually really good. :)

but i think we should be seeing some sort of info on KH3 already
wat634  +   1804d ago
Hope it is, will try it on my neighbors psp.

Hope some info comes out on kh3, I actually played both kh 1 & 2 and it has a really good storyline =)

@Captain - I mean, its on a damn portable, sure show some love to the smaller systems, but i want one on the consoles for once!

@wat634-you're joking,right?
Kingdom Hearts BBS is NOT a spin off,it's actually a MAIN TITLE
and it is probably the best kingdom hearts game yet
rezzah  +   1804d ago
Its not a side story
Its the official prequel not some side story game. The story itself is important to the introduction of what happened before Sora came into the big picture.

It did not start with Sora, it only continued.
wat634  +   1804d ago
I know, just like halo reach, but really, the reason im ticked is that its on a portable.

@captain - it would be much better on a console though
#5.3.1 (Edited 1804d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report
CaptainMarvelQ8  +   1804d ago
it's because
they're saving the big title (KH3) for the consoles
now they're trying to tie in the story by using these titles on the portables
#5.3.2 (Edited 1804d ago ) | Agree(1) | Disagree(0) | Report
NBT91  +   1804d ago
Agreed! Bith by sleep is an unnecessary game, it explained nothing, it just opens more questions and then awnsers them, in the end Sora is still on the island about to leave Destiny island.

Yay! We are back to where we were plot wise some four odd years ago -_-, and besides that 2 games in 4 years is not really enough to hold my interest in the plot anyway, don't even get me started on KH3DS
Neckbear  +   1804d ago
Well, huh.
I bought Etrian Odyssey 3 and Civilization V. PSP2 sounded temptiong, but I have no PSP, and Professor Layton's something I'll buy in the future.

Asked a friend to lend me off Halo: Reach for the campaign. Could care less about the multiplayer, and uh, it IS a 10-hours long shooter after all, so why buy it?

Have Atelier Rorona pre-ordered, as well as Vanquish.

That's it for now.

i dont really like any of the games on that list besides kingdom hearts it was my only anticipated game
FCOLitsjustagame  +   1804d ago
I don't think people missed out on portable or PC games because of Halo Reach. I thinks it's more likely they don't have the portable in question and don't do a lot of PC gaming in general.

Note I am sure those who have portables and good gaming PCs love their systems so this this is not a slam just an observation. Outside of the really really REALLY diehards not everyone has all the systems (including portables) and a gaming PC.
Clarence  +   1804d ago
One game that will cause Reach sales is Black Ops. HALO Reach GOTY please. HALO had nothing to do with why I don't have KH Birth BY Sleep. I have to buy a PSP 3000 because you can't download it for the Go. As far as Move being a flop like Sony said it will be a slow burn. It will catch on. Kincect will sale but once people see how weak it is the sales will fall of just like the sales for the 360.
olos  +   1804d ago
u sure know hwo to shovel BS there....

halo reach goty........u have to b joking.......a fps clone of itslef is not game of the year worthy sorry

move did not flop...however kinect will

birth by sleep is amazing
way funner than reach actually...
tho i have both games
JohnApocalypse  +   1804d ago
Reach = The shit, nuff said
Nugundam0079  +   1804d ago
Phantasy Star Portable 2
Had more fun with this game than I did with REACH
prettyboy1  +   1804d ago
yeah im sorry reach is an average fps
nothing more,nothing less.give me bbs any day over any fps
Optical_Matrix  +   1804d ago
This month I've bought Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep and Pokemon White, both on release date. No Halo:Reach. Both are infinitely better in my honest opinion.

KH: BBS is awesome!
As people said this isnt a spin-off. It has a lot more things than KHII. This is basically what MGS:PW was. Its has a cr@p load of content than any other games in its franchise.
BillOreilly  +   1803d ago
kingdom hearts is great. Im also enjoying valkyria chronicles 2. Cant wait to get psp2. The psp is killing it with games lately. I hope white knight chronicles and ff13 for psp hurry up and come out i cant wait.
Clarence  +   1803d ago
Thats funny that you said KH is a spin off because I though Reach was prequal to the 1st Halo. Sounds like Reach is a spin-off as well. Im sorry but F HALO thats the only game you 360 lovers can talk about. That and Gears. The only thing worth playing on the 360 is ME. Now thats coming to the PS3. HALO Reach won't be GOTY. Not when there's ME2, MGS:PW, KH BBS, GOW 3, Heavy Rain, and GT5. The only game that could possibly get game of the year for the 360 is ME2. It sure in hell won't be, Splinter Cell, Alan Wack, or Crapdown.
Raimond  +   1803d ago
You think Halo would make me miss KH: BBS... ya right!

Been waiting for this game since I saw the secret movie!
Lipscomba  +   1803d ago
No, actually it was KH:BBS that kept me from buying Halo!
