Sleeping dogs, elebits(wii), and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

100% correct about Sleeping Dogs and Enslaved! I only have 2 games per article, but Sleeping Dogs was wonderful.

crazychris41241287d ago

how many articles are you planning to make if you're doing just 2 games per article? Vanquish, Specs Ops: The Line, Flatout Ultimate Carnage, Driver SF, Red Faction Guerrilla, Saboteur, Condemned, Split Second, Blur and many more would be on my list.

I thought elebits was very fun and creative...reminded me a lot of Katmari and it was cool how you tried to find all the little elebits hiding around and lifting stuff up, was a lot of fun IMO
It felt like it was meant for the wii and worked really good with the wii remote.

You could even make your own levels

I wish Nintendo would buy that IP from them.

I was debating doing 5-6 articles. I could do more depending on interest. Split Second, Vanquish and Spec Ops would also be on mine. Great games. Split Second came out on the same day as Red Dead Redemption and Alan Wake... It slipped under the radar.

In fact, Alan Wake was excellent and didn't get the recognition it deserved. That is one of my favorite games.

Catherine and LC were two of my favourite games from last gen. Nice choices.

Also loved Shadows of the Damned, and Killer is dead.

Also some other great underrated games for consideration:
Killer is Dead, Lollipop Chainsaw, Shadows of the Damned
Alice: The Madness Returns
The Saboteur
Prince of Persia
Dead Space
Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom
Xmen Origins Wolverine
Space Marine
Condemned 2
Binary Domain
Remember Me
The Last Guy
Conan the barbarian
Bullet storm

Shadows of the Damned was easily one of the best games that gen and you can tell NT took a lot of inspiration from both Shadows of the Damned and Lollipop Chainsaw. Neither game got the credit it deserved.

AGVulture891286d ago

Some of those are on my list. Vanquish, Alice: Madness Returns and Remember Me didn't get the praise they deserved.

I just finished Catherine last week and oh dammn what a game!!

robtion1286d ago

Yeah its awesome, and the choices you make really impact the cutscenes and how Vincent thinks and acts, not to mention the endings.

Pewdiepie is playing it currently.

Plenty of underrated games on ps3/360 they were ignored because because they JP games and people only wanted to play shooters like COD.
