With the slew of great titles being released, I found myself enthralled in some of 2008’s best, but as I look back, I notice that some games just didn’t really sink in. In no way were these games completely awful, but they seemed to get lost in the mix. Please note that this list is of my own, I don’t particularly know how others may or may not feel about those listed, or what they play.

Far Cry 2

Honestly, I truly enjoyed this game for as long as I could; it was incredibly immersive and set a new height on realism. But, to say the least, it was too much realism for me. Travel was irritating, missions gradually became repetitive, and gun jams seemed to occur at the most inopportune moments. Though, what hurt this game the most in my opinion was the fact that there were other, more enjoyable alternatives at my disposal.

Mirror’s Edge

When I first experienced this game, I went ape; it was innovative, immersive, and stylish! However, since then, I find it hard to see how I could ever come across a reason to play it again. To its credit, Mirror’s Edge boasted a marvel single player, unfortunately, it was exceedingly short and its replay value was bare to none. I was let down, and if you’re intent on playing this game, then you might as well wait for it to hit the bargain bin.

Ninja Gaiden 2

Now, I myself am quite mixed on this one, of course, what made this game stand out was the intensity of the gore. And of course, I for one am a complete fan of any title that allows you to disunite any limbs that care to get in the way of your blade. But, I’m certainly not a fan of loose camera angles, and rough controls. So, in the long run, this game really only services to those die hard fans.

I could go on forever with this list, but I wanted to keep it short and sweet; besides, I have a LittleBigPlanet level I must tend to. Also, in a foolish attempt to get the community involved, I would love to hear your lists, of games that you may have adored initially, but you just couldn’t stand another minute.

Other Honorable Mentions:

Wii Fit

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

  1. I absolutely agree with Ninja Gaiden. Haven’t played any of the modern ones, but would like to.

    I did, however, play GH III, Mirror’s Edge right away.

    Rise of the Argonauts. it had quite a bit of hype generated around it. and it really did look to be a great rpg. but then it came out and hardly anyone even noticed, and its time has already passed without even a second glace.

    Too Human. it was an okay game but it completely failed to live up to its expectation, and now just about everyone has forgotten about it. perhaps were better off not remembering though.

    GH3 was a 2007 launch btw Mirror’s Edge not to fussed , for me it go repetitive, Far Cry 2 was amazing but again got repetitive. Ninja Giaden was amazing though.

    No…those are the games you’ve forgotten:/

  7. @ xino, no crap lol, it is after his article and opinion hehe.

    Yea Mirrors Edge for me it was forgotten because I didn’t see what really separated it from the rest.

  8. Maxxx needs deleting!!!!!!

    There are games that I couldn’t afford and so they got lost in the mix. Plus, I didn’t want to buy more than one at a time and end up tossing a coin or just not giving one title my full attention.

    Far Cry 2 is on my “to do” list, as is Bioshock (I own a PS3) and Ninja Gaiden Sigma, as it happens (I stood in Game with a pre-owned copy in my hands for about 5 minutes before putting it down and leaving on Saturday. Darn!).

    Mirror’s Edge was cool, still want to check out Far Cry 2 at some stage.

    FarCry2 was a good game, but there was something made the game so ridiculous:
    most of the gaurd posts will shoot you on site for no reason, they will just abandon there positions to make sure you are dead.

    I would like to add Frontlines: Fuel of War, though it’s an old game but still worth playing.

    “But, I’m certainly not a fan of loose camera angles, and rough controls. So, in the long run, this game really only services to those die hard fans.”

    I don’t know about you, but the controls for Ninja Gaiden 2 are immaculate. They’re about as perfect as you could possibly get in a game like this. Admittedly, the camera could use a little work, especially in some of the boss fights, but I highly recommend playing through this again, if you’ve played it at all. The controls are bliss.

  12. Hmmm… I figure there will always be diamonds that get LEFT BEHIND in the rough. Meh, that merely spawns cult followings and in some cases, incredible comebacks! (pls. Too Human, pls.)

      Liked it (it is twmac from idle thumbs BTW). Definitely a good twist on the stanradd interview and it is nice to see the human side of what goes on behind the game.One criticism, the introduction has a few too many umms’ and ahms’ in it. It is really hard to not put them in while you are talking but it sounds better if you either make no sound or just keep talking instead. Otherwise, good stuff, Peter gave a good interview in return.

    Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how
    so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours today,
    but I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty price
    sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably
    did, the net shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.
