What is the best game you've never played?



  • 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.

    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.

    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.



  • Never had an Xbox, so never touched a Halo game, nor any of their exclusives. Probably the biggest game that I never touched that I had access to was Skyrim. I'm actually really intimated by that game. Maybe I'll feel braver when the remaster comes out....



  • @Inustar yeah, it's crazy honestly ^ ^

    I'd prolly say Witcher 3. I have it standing next to my PS4, I have even put in the disk and watch the opening etc.. but yeah. I really need to get my act together as I normally LOVE RPGs and everyone is praising it.



  • Shadow of the Colossus and every Final Fantasy game except FFVI.



  • Wow, seeing all the Final Fantasy here is kind of surprising. Not that its here, but the sheer amount. Allow me to add mine: Final Fantasy VI because I never felt I had the system, nor do I like it when a game gives a lot of characters to be responsible for (I love Mass Effect 2, but half that team never gets used). I really starting to come around to it though and considering getting it soon. To everyone out there who hasn't played the games listed because of means, NOT because of dislike, I urge you to give them a try someday. Many games listed here are fantastic and deserve an hour or two of your time to decide if it's really and truly not for you.
