Here are 10 of the best PlayStation games no one played. Lost that were brilliant but ignored. Any in your library? Kudos to you.
Disgaea is amazing, enough said lol.
I played R3 and it was terrible. Weak story mode, unbalanced online. Insomniac clearly half assed it because they knew it wouldnt sell.
"I watched youtube videos of R3 and it was terrible. Weak story mode, unbalanced online. Insomniac clearly half assed it because they knew I wasn't going to buy it since I trashed it from day 1." -FIXED-
Had the best single player campaign of any fps I've played this gen imo.
The story mode was fantastic. Played splitscreen with a buddy. Don't lie.
I couldn't disagree more with this statement. I'm most of the way through Resistance 3 at the moment (picked it up for $20) and I love it. This is one of the best single player, fps campaigns I've ever played and I was gaming when text adventures were all the rage. The story isn't earth shattering but by videogame standards it's right up there, and some of the levels I've played through distinctly remind me of some of the best levels Half Life 2 had to offer. Can't wait to finish this and play through again, co-op with my wife. She doesn't game much, but I know she'll love this and so few games offer the chance to play through the main campaign in split-screen.
I don't think we played the same game bro, but you are most certainly entitled to your own opinion.
WTF are you talking about? R3 had an amazing campaign and story. It's actually one of the few FPS campaigns that kept me engaged and waiting for the next plot twist to take place. Yes, the story wasn't perfect, but I thourougly enjoyed it.
Hate 10 click articles Resistance 3 El Shaddai Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Vagrant Story Beyond Good & Evil Disgaea: Hour of Darkness Vanquish Stacking Gitaroo Man Ōkami Good list but...Not 10 clicks
Indeed and it had the open nature people constantly whines about now when it comes to jrpg . But how would they know , they'd rather only touch final fantasy and complain :p
amazing game. it had like 100 side characters you could collect which was pretty daunting.
YES fully agreed! this game is way under the radar. radiata stories had so much content that you could interact and the combat was fun as well. people, if you havent played this game, you are missing out.
OOOOMMMMGGGGG Darth I simply LOVED Radiata Stories...I played that game like it was my last. Because it was from the same developers of star Ocean (till the end of time..OH MY GOD I could not stop playing that game) the battle system was sooo nostalgic to me. EVERYONE who is a fan of RPG's MUST MUST MUST Play this game...Hoepfully it gets released on psn as a classic ps2 title. I will buy it again and play that game...Hopefully they make it a high def remake.
Haha. I've never played it, but the title makes me think of how old people pronounce radiator. I don't want to hear some old lady talk about how her "radiata no longer works".
Okami was a great game, if ever there was a game I'd want in HD, it would be that.
I never played and I regret that...I remember my little brother begging me to get on this game and I sadly didn't listen to him...SMH I am ashamed about this.
I played it and loved the game style. I wish they made a playable version for the PS Vita! Okami on the run!!
Meh Enslaved doesnt deserve a spot ... even if you liked it (to each their own) , you gotta admit there are far better titles that were ignored
Good story, though button mashing combat and platforming that did itself. There are other games that deserve a spot over it.
No. Enslaved was incredible! Did you actually play through it or just the demo? The story was so memorable and the gameplay evolved constantly!
I find it to be a terrible game . good story book/movie ? why not , but terrible game . But keep telling yourself i didnt try it . And again , given the amount of gems that were overlooked over the years , i have trouble believing one wouldnt find better and more deserving titles , that could take its place , even if you liked it .
I played a bit of the demo of Resistance 3 and realised that I was playing a poor man's regurgitation of Half Life 2: Episode 2 so what was the point of doing that again?
Bro Resistance 3 was an awesome awesome game...Sony just didn't market it well like they did with the previous two. Shame on them because they missed out on a bunch of sales.
...just read reviews, or players opininons, before stating dumb things.. R3 was really good, the solo part was better than most of fps (story, ambiance, graphics), and the multi was original..
R3 had the best single player campaign for an FPS in 2011...but the multiplayer was probably the worst because of what it lost....and I don't mean like what KZ2 complainers lost, but 60 player smooth online play of R2 and the 8 player co-op. They took something unique for a console shooter and turned it into your run of the mill average garbage. It also had the laziest Move controls I've seen in an FPS, which goes to show you that Insomniac really did have a foot out the door while developing this, Ratchet A41, and Overstrike(which I'm sure is years more polished the R3 and Ratchet). Enslaved was a decent game but not worth $60 or even $40. Were it not for the relationship with Trip and Monkey, they game would be a total waste thanks to the terrible platforming, slow and clunky combat/controls, and the general failings of a dev that can't handle UE3. I'd like to add Socom 4 to the list. Outside of the goofy 45 stealth mission, Socom 4 was amazing. Of course it's not as good as Socom 2 so fans pooped on the game (same fans that probably mourn the loss of Zipper now...). It was also crippled by the PSN hacks so the mp was overlooked. The game also had outstanding Move controls for a 3PS...
Overstrike is basically R2's 8 player co-op turned into a whole game. They could have easily implemented it into R3 but they didn't want to cannobalize Overstrike's potential sales. This is pretty much obvious and I know I won't be getting Overstrike.
I don't buy that excuse. By the time Overstrike ships R3 will have been out for at least a year. It's not going to steal any sales from Overstrike.
@kneon think about it. Like you said, by the time Overstrike comes out, R3 will be at least a year old. By then the game will be $30-$40 (more than likely $30). why would you buy Overstrike for $60 when you can get the same 8-player co-op experience for $30 on a game that has an amazing single player experience as well.
i've played 3 of those games :D btw, how does disgaea look like an ugly SNES game? the art style wasnt great but it wasnt crap either :L
Lol, I own all of them :)
Folklore Evil Zone The Bouncer Chaos Legion Bushido Blade 2 Vampire Hunter D Valkyria Chrinicles Resonance of Fate Way of the Samurai Genji: Dawn of the Samurai
Good list Gin.
Top games always comes from Japan.
I've always fancied playing Folklore. Might have to track it down! Cheers for the reminder!
It's annoyingly dificult to find but well worth it.
I was excited about this game from the very beginning of reading about it and seeing screens. This game in a certain way was similar to Demons Souls/Dark Souls except for the combat. You play in a dungeon crawling type of setting. Weapons and armor could be crafted and customized at workshop areas. It could also be combined or merged to create a new type of weapon. Weapons could dull or break as well. A game most people forgot about or didn't know exist: Top Shop - PS1 game This is a board game I played with my friends and was addicted to. This could easily be an app game and be very successful today. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I got Vanquish, but the XBox 360 version.
Okami was great. Another tragic tale of an awesome game not played. The Resistance series were good games but got bogged down by people griping about tiny little details. Like the flimsy excuse that it is like Half Life.And what does that mean?
time spiltters, awesome time
growlanser series are awesome games that didnt get well known and is a great series.
ONI- One of the few games known outside of Halo from Bungie and the only anime game Rockstar published. I just got my copy yesterday and the visuals haven't aged well but the character animations and combat is ace! http://www.unikpsp.com/ebay... I'm also glad to see some Vanquish love in the article but surprised no Shadows Of the Damned...
I haven't played any of em! I've heard Resistance 3's single player is awesome though, and Okami has been on my list for a bit now. I've heard of many of them, but none on my radar.
Dark Cloud 1&2 Wild Arms 3 The Getaway Costume Quest And currently Starhawk isn't getting the attention it deserves.
What about? Spy Vs Spy
I've played all but 2, 4, 6 and 8.
But why does NO ONE ever mention Metal Arms: Glitch in the System and Okage: Shadow King.
Good list...although many people have played Okami and BG&E now, simply because everyone told them to. :) I would put Costume Quest up there with Stacking, also. Why does Super Sonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars NEVER make these lists? It is so addicting!
I picked up Sacred 2: Fallen Angel and absolutely adored it. Yes, a bit of screen tearing, but - great combat, very funny dialogue - and a group of monsters performing a metal concert. I got the special edition uber cheap, with the map and toy - and don't regret it for a second.
I read the title and thought of R3.. such an underrated game. :/
GOD HAND 10 times.
