Nice list but 12 games in 1 day. I don't know about you guys but I have family to spend some of that quality time with on that day. That doesn't mean gaming is out but DAMN 12 games on 1 day, HELL NO.. maybe 2 out of the list I will play for sure.

I don't think it means play all of them in a day. In fact, I know it doesn't mean that.

I have played one of those games today. Guess which one of them...TEAM FORTRESS 2!!!!

Ninja Gaiden II is not a classic. It's got one of the best combat engines wrapped up in some of the worst game design I've seen this gen. It broke my heart. The rest of the games on this list are great though!
Snatcher  +   1873d ago
Ninja Gaiden on the original Xbox is really good though, hard, but good :D
WiIIiam  +   1873d ago
Ninja Gaiden for Xbox and the Sigma remake for PS3 are my favorite hack and slash action games. Bayonetta is the only other one that comes close. I cannot wait to see what Bayonneta 2 holds in store for action gamers.

I assumed this was going to be a list of games from previous generations.

Have we reached the point where we can relive games from this generation already?

I know "classic" can simply mean "high quality," but the blurb for the article made it sound like the article would be about legendary old games to experience again for Christmas nostalgia.
Dark-Cloud  +   1873d ago
these are the best games out so they have to put them , there are no new games in christmas so we have to buy the games that released befor christmas ... i already put a list , i hope you people like it :) best games i ever played :D .. and i hope you people have fun too :)

Ninja Gaiden 2 was not a good game, replace it with Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.
Relientk77  +   1872d ago
They listed Tony Hawk: Ride lol
Hozi89  +   1872d ago
