    The game's too good and traditional for this list to win.



  • @Sentinel-Beach I hate that you killed it, but your reasoning makes up for it.

    If Journey is out how can we justify having Flower in here.

    It was all screams and giggles about this when it came out.. but in the end it felt over hyped and really not for me

    Every now and again you see something where you just feel this insane disconnect from the rest of the world, and this game is one of them. I genuinely don't get how something like that can even be considered good nevermind an 85 on metacritic.

    This feels too much like an action adventure game, which is verboten, even if it were more like hack and slash. Not other-y (other-esque?) enough!

    I haven't beaten Torment, but I played a fair amount of it sometime ago, it is probably one of the best games on this list, but in similar vein to whats been said before it is too much of a traditional game for this list

    One of the most uninteresting looking games I've ever seen...Not sure if I ever had such disinterest in a game before.

    So I bought a Wii U (yes, I'm not sure why either) and one of the games people recommended to me was Nintendo Land. Everyone told me it was packaged in, but for me it was not. It was unavailable to even download.... until after I sold my Wii U when it came back on the virtual console. So it brings back bad memories.
    Other then that, I also want weirder games to win. 😁



  • @Sentinel-Beach Hack'n'slash arcade deserves its time in the sun! Vive le resistance!

    More like... Harvest Moon: Back to Hell.. because I killed it.. and I guess now I believe in the afterlife and have deemed this game to spend eternity there. I like the series just again... I want the weirdos to win here.

    I'm not into nightmares. Seaman should've been axed a while ago, and then shoved into a woodcutter, and then the viscera from that woodcutter should've been doused with gas and lit on fire. Then, once the ashes had cooled, they should've been gathered up, placed into an urn (lined with acid, just to be safe), and placed on a SpaceX rocket, where it could safely be ejected into the endless vacuum that is space.



  • @naltmank And then remote detonated far from the atmosphere? X-D



  • @Brannox Good call, but I'm not sure how that would work with the lack of oxygen. Someone please confirm if this is possible. Bio majors don't deal with space very much.



  • @naltmank I really don't see what's wrong about a deformed fish asking very personal questions about you.

    Youtube Video

    Also, this video has the phrase, "I'll friend your butt," which obviously, needs to become a thing people say.

    I haven't put enough time into this I think, but it hasn't showed me something to really hook me into the game.

    I don't even understand how it lasted this long, other than people don't know what it is.
