I thought enslaved would have been on that list...
SINGULARITY...and what's sad is, although it's clearly a Bioshock clone, it's actually a brilliant idea. It wasn't executed properly. I bet if it got a sequel, the game would be marvellous
100% agreed, it did give of a bioshock vibe but it did so in its style :D the game is awesomely wicked, whoever published/developed it should make a longer and improved sequel as soon as possible, i'd for sure buy it XD
Published by activision, so it wont happen :(
Singularity and Cryostasis are two very solid FPS games that very few people have played but should give a look at. Metroid Other M may not be the greatest Metroid game in the series but it sure ass hell should be played. Remember if your a PC Gamer like me then you do have a Wii "hint hint"!!
Singularity was the first game that came to mind when I saw the title. I'd put Blur, Psi-Ops, and Freedom Fighters on my list as well. All great games that got nowhere near as much attention as they should have.
Metal Warriors looks pretty cool and i like the whole mech thing. gonna look that up now
I had a blast playing Singularity as well, a highly under rated title. Oddly enough, I also had alot of fun playing "Dead to Rights: Retribution".
Saw the trailer on YouTube by pure luck and bought Singularity on release day full price,a month later half price....WTF, never seen such drastic price cut in Norway before.Though Bulletstorm had later similar fate, and I bought that game at release day too, worst luck ever. I had a blast with Singularity SP and saw a somewhat small but buzzing MP community.I played some MP but set my eyes on another SP game I just had to play.I went back to the Singularity MP a month later,wow it took forever to fill a group of players to start a match. I don't know how bad this title sold, but with zero plans for MP DLC and few modes to begin with, it quickly died out. I still kick myself for not sticking to the MP in the beginning, now I have no chance of getting the platinum trophy, too bad it had so many trophies linked to a dead MP feature.The sun don't shine on me one bit.
I loved Singularity. The list forgot Enslaved, Singularity, Metal Arms, Beyond Good and Evil, and The Saboteur. All of those are brilliant games that if found at a store, will be 5-10 dollars used. What a shame.
It's on the list of mediocre games that no one played.
i played Brutal legends,Metroid Other M and Turok 3.
The only two I played were Brutal Legend and Eternal Darkness. I didn't know that Eternal Darkness did poorly. That game was epic. I still tell people about it today. As for Brutal Legend, I barely started it but it's in my pile of "games I want to play but have no time for" along with Portal 2, Red Dead Redemption, Killzone 3, Heavy Rain, Fallout: New Vegas, Dead Space 2, Darksiders and recently added to the pile: Alan Wake. Work and family. I love both of them - but man, they cut into my gaming time. :)
I am a die hard, 80s metal fan but I gotta say Brutal Legend was horrible. I'd rather just play the songs from it on my ipod and watch paint dry.
Mad World and Metroid: Other M? Yech. Mad World was repetitive and not that great in the first place, and Other M took 2 steps back both gameplay and story-wise. I definitely wanna check out Turok 3 Shadow Of Oblivion and Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem.
Eternal Darkness is AMAZING. Probably some of the best controls I've ever felt in a Survival Horror. That and the game does a great job at downright freaking the shit out of you. The voice acting is great, the storyline is so awesome and the replayability is very high if you want to get the true ending, since the first chapter basically sets the tone of what kind of game story you will be getting. Definitely definitely DEFINITELY get it man. You will not be disappointed at all.
Zone of the Enders 2 was amazingggggg, it was way ahead of its time, with thousands of mechs fighting you and an army of your own, you would never think it possible on PS2, I have a copy of it if anyone wants to buy it :)
you forgot to put in halo reach
:S Halo reach almost matched black ops sales all from one platform... a lot of people played it, they just all realized that reach multiplayer sucks in comparison to halo 1,2 and 3.
halo reach to date has sold roughy 3-4 million less than the xbox version of black ops... so i wouldn't consider that as "almost matched black ops sales all from one platform..."
LMAO WTF, are you serious dude? Plenty of people are playing it.
madworld should be on ps3 with move support zone of enders is getting HD remake so if people want a 3rd one buy the hd remake to prove to konami that this IP does have a fan base that will support it(ps don't give me excuse about why should i have to rebuy when ZOE 1-2 never sold well anyway)
Totally agreed on ZoE2. It's one of the best game I've ever played on a Playstation system. I've also played ZoE1, but it's nothing compared to its sequel. I'm so glad that there will be the HD collection, the series deserves it.
Brutal legend shouldn't be on that, it's sold about 1.5 million copies
Though 1.5 million is a respectable number, I still felt that this game deserved a lot more attention than what it ended up recieving. With games like Modern Warfare 2 selling in the tens of millions, it's sad to see a refreshing original IP like Brutal Legend not doing much better than what it did.
Yes I'd have liked it to sell more as well but I'd imagine that there are games that are as good which didn't sell as much, which could be in it's place
You've got too many high-profile games on that list. Brutal Legend, Madworld, Turok 3, Metroid Other M, and ZOE2. All of these games were well-recieved when launched, and still remembered fondly (and recommended to other gamers today). They're only games that "no one played" if you're writing solely for casual gamers that are only really aware of stuff like Call of Duty. This is N4G. News For Gamers. Know your audience. Though, still, this isn't as bad as last week's list of games no one played that had, like, 3 or 4 Final Fantasies.
1.5 million people bought it, but how many actually played it? That was a busy year for games...
It was 1.5 million by february this year as sales built up slowly. I would guess that everyone that loves either metal, gore or jack black would have played it, so that would be just about all of them.
I love Tim Schafer games :)
Naw it belongs on the list. I've had the game since Christmas and I still haven't even opened up the package let alone play it. I feel ashamed. Since this is literally the only game I've done this to.
Brutal legend, Metroid: other M, Madworld are awesome games... this list should include: No more heroes 1 & 2 Shadows of the damned Child of eden Vanquish Sin & Punishment 2 Excitebots
Agreed with every game you mentioned :O Would also add Killer 7 though
I almost did... It's a great game, and has sadly been overlooked by many gamers...
