The Overshadowed Games of 2011

With the release of so many big games this year, a lot of lesser (equally great) games have been overlooked. Does anyone even remember that SOCOM 4 came out this year? Probably not because it was overshadowed by L.A. Noire. This list is here to higlight those games that were missed and which games caused them to be overshadowed.

El Shaddai was definitely overshadowed... it was such a great game indeed.

TrendyGamers2380d ago

It definitely was. Very unique and fun.

Homefront had good multiplayer but I just didn't enjoy the single player.

Have yet to check out the other three but I hope to one day soon, especially Dead Island.

yeah..that's true.. and great artstyle tooo..

other thing, people should buy Shadows of the damned..if you like Resident evil 4 it something like that but a lot of time funnier :)

For me, 2011 was filled with games that turned out to be my favorites, despite not being very well-received. Such as Homefront, Brink, Dead Island, and LOTR:WitN

i need to check out shadows of the damned.

TrendyGamers2380d ago

Yeah! Definitely one of the best 3DS games.

Radiant Historia

Odd that they would suggest that this game was overshadowed, especially considering there was a second run of the game due to the high demand for it.

Red Faction Armageddon

Red Faction has gone too far from the formula of the original game. It isn't any wonder the title is now dead, or at least in limbo, since what the fans of the original liked hasn't been seen again in the series.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

Although Warhammer may have pioneered the whole "Space Marine" genre, since a lot of people aren't familiar with it ironically the game ended up looking like a generic "Space Marine" game. Not to mention the odd huge armor little head combination.

Skylander’s: Spyro’s Adventure

I didn't even realize this was a Spyro game until I took a closer look at the package. Activision may be trying to get on board the collect 'em all money train, but they'll never do as well as Pokemon.
