Five Overlooked Games You May Have Missed in 2010

Steve Haske writes, "God of War, Gran Turismo, Mass Effect, Red Dead Redemption, Mario Galaxy—2010 had a lot of really big titles, inevitably leaving some of the smaller games released overshadowed, swept under the rug or just forgotten about. Here's a look at a few worthwhile games you didn't play that you probably should."

Dude, all these games were awful.

Quagmire3738d ago

Yeah somewhat, although I hear from others that Alpha Protocol is somewhat good despite its many and obvious short-comings, might give it a try once it hits the garbage..I mean bargain bin.

chadley3738d ago

I've played Alpha Protocol... And no it is NOT alright!

This is basically a list of the worst games of 2010. These are not over looked at all.

A better list of good overlooked games is:
Castelvania LoS

I liked Lords of Shadow. but besides that, yes it's the worst games. I thought the worst games of this year were Sonic The Hedgehog 4 and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

Nier and Alpha Protocol are worth a look for the right people. The others aren't...

Worst list ever

If you want over-looked gems try good games like 3d dot heroes, sengoku basara, metro 2033 or darksiders. These are all terrible.

Shit, you should have written the article.

Nier was not awful at all. Great game, totally overlooked.

mastershredder3737d ago

Yeah, Nier is a gem that many will continue to overlook. Too bad for them.

It's not just skin-deep kids.
I'm not into RPGs or JRPGS mainly because of the hokey stories, the 15 year old protagonist, character styles that have been overused since "The Bouncer" or turn based gameplay (for RPGs). Nier takes all those bits and mashes them up into a Japanese action RPG that is geared for older audiences and pokes fun at itself all the while (plenty of WTF to be found here).

The story is also an amazing feat. Certainly a nice break from the typical western games that are being crapped out in abundance with far less substance.

Seems like Neir is getting a small cult following nowadays.

The soundtrack is truly an accomplishment, story is japanese crazy, and there are some interesting gameplay elements.

For 10-15 bucks its worth a shot if you want something off the beaten path.

Lame games, do NOT buy.
