Weak ass list!

I want the return of Powerstone

Yup, been gaming since snes and never heard about any of those games. Cant get over them when they werent in my interest to give a damn to begin with.

LX-General-Kaos4541d ago

Agreed to the fullest. I am sure they could have come up with a better selection than that. Even younger people could have done better.

that is one forgotten franchise I'd like to see again. Wait...it was just a single game. Not even a franchise. My bad, but i would still like to see a remake.

That and Strider. Since Strider on the PS1 I have been patiently waiting......

I'm still waiting but not as patient anymore.

This is the authors personal list but he passes it over like everyone cares about what game he liked in the past.

Out of those 5 games, I only know about KOTOR and Eternal Darkness, Ive never even heard about the rest.

His stupid personal list:

Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem
MVP Baseball 2005
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Thanks for saving the bother to browse through 5 pages for that stupid list. KOTOR especially doesn't make any sense now that The Old Republic MMO is out and played by millions.

If I had to choose a personal favorites I would go with Powerstone and Baldurs Gate. I would have also named Syndicate, X-Com and Deus Ex as my favorites - but all of those have been/will be revived :)

everyone forgot how awesome timesplitters series was.

Gotta love going through six pages for five items.... *facepalm* ;P

@above: Mmmmmm Timesplitters. It's about time for another, now isn't it? (there was no intended pun)

Hicken4541d ago

I refused. As soon as I saw that, I closed the tab.

Eternal Darkness I can see... a little. It wasn't wildly popular, or anything, though.

One year of a sports series does not make a franchise. If they'd said MVP Baseball, they might have gotten some points, but singling out one year just makes it a stupid addition to a pretty poor list, overall.

Nobody's forgotten about KOTOR, so... it doesn't belong there. Hell, I never played the game, and I haven't forgotten it.

The other two... never even heard of em. Well, I HAVE heard of Actraiser, but not enough that I would be happy/sad about its status in any way.

All in all, it's a pretty bad list, in my opinion.

It took me about 5 minutes to read this article. there is only two ways i can take the comments that its too long. you are extremely busy (good for you)or extremely horrible at reading (keep at it slugger). either way it probaby took you longer to think about what comment to write than to read it.

THeir list
Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem
MVP Baseball 2005
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Fear Effect! I miss my psychological survival horror lesbian chinese action game.

I remember Eidos even teased a part 3 but don't know what happened with that.


Every time I look at the trailer I can't believe that they they cancelled such an awesome looking sequel. Square/Eidos should make it now! ;_;

They should fix their games first.

Most likely comes with microtransactions and loot boxes.
