Games that didn't do well, that you'd recommend.

I was very, very impressed with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West when I bought it a few years back. Visually, it kind of reminded me of something I'd expect to see on Nintendo, with the colorful environments, and I liked the characters more then what something like Bioshock Infinite gave us..

And the ending rush defined epic.

Smasandian
Yeah, Enslaved was a very good game. You can get it on Steam if you can't find a hard copy.

Games that I thought were good - great that I don't think a ton of people played.

1. Bulletstorm - ****ing fun as shit and interesting locale.
2. Call of Juerez: Gunslinger
3. Door Kickers - very interesting top down turn-based/real time counter terrorist thingy.
4. Wargame Red Dragon - not really well know mainstream but RTS fans love it. I think it's probably the best RTS out there in the last few years. ****ing tough to master but awesome if you do.

Clive Barker's Undying- one of the best FPS I have ever played. It's on PC, and it is far far superior to Clive Barkers Jericho game. It has a wonderful horror-like atmosphere, cool game play, great sound effects, etc.

Then there is Anachronox, also for PC. Gameplay is similar to FF7, but it's got an epic storyline with a lot of humor in it. For example you can get a drunken mexican super hero in your party. This game is on steam.

Then you have Phantom Dust on the xbox. It's just a really awesome game. A very unique game, I've never played anything like it.

Also on xbox is Breakdown, a FPS. Has an interesting storyline and does super powered fights quite well for a FPS.

I also think Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines didn't get the love it deserved. I love the World of Darkness and that is one of the best vampire video games I have ever played. It truly captures the look and feel of the World of Darkness.

FOR FREEEDOM!

The fan mods really made that series. Once had Galactus and Spectre duking it out, and another time the Decepticons invaded Freedom City.

Seen this one on GOG

also Steam blows for older games.

Yeah especially the one mod for Freedom Force vs the Third Reich. But I'm not talking about a mod that adds new levels, rather one that adds a whole shitload of new feats and powers..as well as new custom animations for the powers(like the green boxing glove a GL is known for shooting at enemies). Cool new additions like telekinesis.

I always thought the second game was the best. It does neat stuff like allowing you to play as Timemaster.

They (Whoever it may be) fail at getting older games to work on modern operating systems imo.

Steam is just a store. GOG was about making older games works.

Not sure why you think Steam should be making sure games work on modern systems. It's a just a store. It's the publishers responsible.

Got Sacred Citadel through the Games with Gold deal.

Seems pretty good to me. Like a modern day take on Golden Axe.

Not sure why it's been panned by reviewers. Maybe because it isn't gimmicky? God forbid anyone makes a straight up brawler without a hook, whether it's using a previous ip or ramps up the crudeness..

Actually, its also Steam's fault.

Case in point, I bought KOTOR 1 off the gamestop PC store app, and it worked fine.

Yet on Steam you hear issues of stuttering, hard crashes, glitches and stuff.

It works great for SOME new games. -COUGH- ARKHAM KNIGHT!!! -COUGH-

But for a lot of the games, I'd rather pirate a game then buy it off steam because it'd probably run better.

Even Skyrim under recommended settings was running like shit for me, and this was when my pc was in good condition.

Of course Steam is only interested in making cash roll eyes (sarcastic)

we don't care if we continue to sell some old games that won't work on modern system's.

That's complete bullshit.

Ugh. Thought it meant "greatest game you ever played." So ignore my previous comment lol

Speaking of Gamecube..the game "Eternal Darkness Sanity's Requiem" is awesome. A cool game about cosmic horrors.

Yeah, I'd spend hours just creating new characters and tweaking their powers. Sometimes I'd create huge battle royals and put both sides under the control of the computer and watch the carnage. But yeah the mod link I posted adds even more stuff to it, I spent over an hour going over the new attributes.

It's actually not, I had problems with the KOTOR series on Steam as well, though not the same problems. For me on Steam KOTOR 1 works perfectly. But KOTOR 2 has one big flaw in that the camera messes up and begins to slowly rise up higher and then it just goes to a weird angle and it just makes the game unplayable. But a non-steam version of KOTOR 2 worked fine.

Though speaking of that I will put KOTOR 2 on the greatest games nobody played, for one reason: most people who have played it have not played the most complete version. You see a lot of content was cut out. But this content has been restored for the PC version so you can download it and apply it, Steam even has it for download too. It adds cutscenes and some new items and quests. One of the new things is you go with HK-47 on a mission to the droid factory.

Smasandian
That's par for the course for any game, especially PC games.

KOTOR 2 was plagued with bugs on all versions. I remember the PC version having huge issues. You can make the case that Steam shouldn't be selling a product that doesn't work (even though it's normal for PC games to work for some people and it doesn't for others), and allow refunds (before they did) but Valve is under no obligation to fix the product. It's just a store.

They had that for base FF, too. Summoning mechs had Kyle Rayner written all over it.

Ever play that one mod that had Wolverine and Minuteman teaming up against Predators and aliens and all kinds of stuff? Somehow, they got Minutemans voice actor for it.

That JLA mod was great, too. Based on the animated series, with nods to the Crisis and 90's comic book history.

I never played Ico or Shadow of the Colossus despite always hearing good things. Also never tried and of the God of War games. Or any of the Battlefield games.

Just dug of Freedom Force and that crossover mod. It was called The Great Hunt, and it started out with Wolverine, Martian Manhunter, and Minuteman teaming up.

And as I just rediscovered, it was also friggan impossible. The first mission puts Wolverine against Grundy, Shocker, and Electro all at once. The second mission has you trying to stop the Wrecking Crew from destroying a school, a Predator, Shocker, and Grundy run interference. What makes the second especially impossible, is the buildings are made of cardboard.. They go down in under ten seconds against a cl 100, let alone a group of them..

Pac-man Championship Edition XD.

That game will steal your soul. As will its sequel.

Still try and S rank the Spiral 10 minute course every now and then.

Hmm, perhaps they were able to fix the problem. Though I don't think everyone who played it experienced problems so it could just be that. Also whenever I have the game open if I plug my controller in the camera begins spinning around uncontrollably.

On that note I'm still surprised when I come across the more recent PC games that do not support controllers. Some only support xbox 360 controllers. Though there are ways to fool them into thinking your controller is a 360 one.

I had to think about this for a while. I don't know if it's any good, but I've always wanted to play Monster Hunter for the Wii. Never got the system though.

Tri is not all that good as far as MH games go. The water combat is a bit broken and uneven, the rooster of monsters and weapons is fine but Switchaxe and Slime are unbalanced.

Its not unbalanced. You can kill any monster in the game with Slime just as fast as you can with Sword & Shield.

Unless they left more things unbalanced on Tri then they did 3 Ultimate.

Battlefield games are best played online, The single player campaigns for them are usually shit.

Serpent in the Staglands, which is now on Steam. One of those quality indie RPG's that come to places like Steam. It's on GOG too despite coming out in 2015:

In case anyone is wondering the trailer contains gameplay footage too.
