OXCGN’s 10 Sadly Overlooked Games This Gen


"So the big release season is just beginning, and those of you with deep wallets are rushing around pre-ordering every top game before each emerges onto store shelves.

"But what about those who can only afford maybe one or two new releases, or maybe none at all yet? There’s a global economic slowdown on after all.

"Well at OXCGN we’ve decided to put ourselves in the game Animus and go back in time to discover what titles we enjoyed this gen that you should be able to get for cheap (and still play the multiplayer without a code!).

"They may not be as gorgeous or polished as the newbies coming out, and some of their developers have unfortunately gone the way of the dodo, but they still offered some of us great entertainment and we think didn’t get the attention they deserved."

I still haven't tried metro, but civ was awesome!

Proeliator2542d ago

I think I'm one of the eight people who played The Outfit, and it's still one of my favorites.

BadCircuit2542d ago

Yeah that game was excellent. I'd love to find it again, but it's hard to now.

I should check ebay.

Also The First Templar I think I saw in 1 store!

KaBaW2541d ago

The Outfit was the first game I picked up, when I purchased my x360.
It was a great game; fun, and at the time, it looked excellent.

It's still one of the earlier games, that I have to this day.

MariaHelFutura2541d ago

Ico and SOTC, again. Sadly.

Belgavion2542d ago

Oh yeah forgot about The Outfit!

antiAntag0nist2541d ago

The Outfit was pretty good, one of the first games I got for my 360 back in 2007.

Eske2542d ago

Sadly overlooked games? I'd say EVE, probably. Been steadily improving for years now, but its still niche.

EVO-OM3GA2541d ago

Thank you OXM I see a few games I missed for my 360 which I will now be getting

gaminoz2541d ago

you mean OXCGN. Oxygen..Yeah I know: IGN, OXM, OXCGN, PALGN, MMGN etc. etc. It's confusing.

Quagmire2541d ago (Edited 2541d ago )

Damn there are so many overlooked games this gen, I can name so many. I love titles which dont get alot of publicity.

Metro 2033, Spit/Second, Darksiders, Red Faction: Guerilla, Heavenly Sword, Enslaved, Brutal Legend, Wolfenstein, Singularity, Turok (the only game featuring Dinosaurs this gen).

And of course Armada of the Damned which was unfortunately cancelled a couple months before release.

Baka-akaB2541d ago (Edited 2541d ago )

Good list . Still i wont agree with the following : Enslaved , Wolfenstein (sorry but it was one of the worst game of the wolf saga) , Turok (again the worst turok game so far) .

I'd however add to your list : Vanquish , Bayonetta , Shadow of the damned , no more heroes , Alice Madness , The darkness

ShaunCameron2541d ago

Bayonetta: best use of the XB360 button system of any non-shooter game. Agreed.
