What is the best game you've never played?

    Metal Gear Solid. It looks fun, but I just can't get past the blocky PS1 textures. Might play the PC port someday...

    You might want to try the Gamecube version. The PS1 version is better IMO but if you can't get past the visual, it'll be better than waiting for a PC version :)

    There's already a PC version, and it's a more faithful port than the GC version, which remixes some stuff.



  • For those that haven't played Zelda, I would definitely recommend playing through A Link to the Past or Link's. You can play them on virtual console I believe. Those were the definitive games of the franchise for me. I'm currently playing through Ocarina of Time for 3ds. It's just ok for me. I prefer the Wind Waker and its art direction for 3D Zelda games.

    For me I haven't played any turn based RPG games including Final Fantasy and Person games. I make terrible decisions and cant wrap my head around the combat systems. I prefer action in general. Maybe someday I'll get sparked on them.



  • As someone who never owned any Nintendo after the NES, a ton of games. Chrono Trigger and FFVI are the two that immediately come to mind.

    Also any PC only games really like Half Life or Starcraft.

    I was a playstation girl but even then I did miss out on Metal Gear Solid.



  • All the GTA games that isn't IV. During its PS2 era, I was heavy into CS 1.6 and Brood War, so outside of watching my friends play it, I've yet to touch 3, San Andreas and Vice City.



  • I'm currently in the process of rectifying this. Beat LTTP the other week, On Super Metroid now and Chrono Trigger after.

    I can think of two games that I've missed. System Shock 2 and Deus Ex. Hopefully I'll get around to them some day.



  • For me it's between System Shock 2, Bioshock, or Chrono Trigger, couldn't just pick one of them.



  • Bloodborne and any Dark Souls game, even though I plan to at least play Bloodborne in the next couple months. Chrono Trigger is also a big one, I have played many of those SNES RPG's. There's probably too much that I haven't played, but the biggest one is Final Fantasy VII. I want to, but then I thought I should just wait for the remake, but now I'm thinking I should play the first one so I can be more educated as to what's new/different when the remake comes out.



  • Skyrim/Fallout series. I know they're great, but those games are wayyyyyyyy too big for me. Final Fantasy VII as well - started it like 5 separate times, made it to about the end of the first disc and never finished. I really have to do that sometime.



  • Probably almost every JRPG and the Half-Life series. Not a big fan of turn based games, although I loved Pokemon Red as a kid but I think that was because it was more cannon to the card game and show, so I doubt I'll really make it around to getting into a lot of them. I do plan on playing the Half-Life series soon but I feel like I can take my time on that if you know what I mean



  • I've never played a Final Fantasy game. I'm sure at least one of those is pretty good.



  • Planescape Torment. If it was on Steam I would buy it, I know it's on GOG but I want all my games in Steam. Petty reason to skip maybe the best RPG of all time. Also I don't know if these can be considered to be in the best games of all time, but I'd love to play Persona and Yakuza series.

    How can I not know about a PC version until now :/

    Shame on me..



  • The Last of Us. I own it, and want to play it... just haven't gotten around to it yet.



  • Whoo man, there is a lot for.
    First off, all PlayStation games (any generation). I've never a PS system but I intend to get a ps2 down the road to get what I've missed.
    Any of the final fantasy games,
    Shovel Knight, portal 2, GTA 5, resident evil 4, the list could go on ^ ^



  • @Cloudid PS2 is a great system. IMO easily the best selection of games. You will have tons of fun.



  • Most of the Final Fantasy's VII, IX, X ect.



  • @Dirokia there are so many of them. Chrono Trigger, All Zelda games, Metroid, Mario Galaxy, Half Life, Portal, Final Fantasy 1-9, Witcher series, Resident Evil, Gran Turismo, Resident Evil, Crash Bandicoot, Pyro, All Smash games except the first one, Red Dead Redemption and lots lots more. I kinda feel bad :P



  • @MonsTruz Yup, pretty much the same thing.
    It sure looked pretty this E3 though.



  • Mother 3, yes I know there is a fan translation but I'm still waiting for Nintendo to release it in English.
