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..
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.

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.
