You call yourself a gamer?!
Let me just start off by saying that this article is kind of a joke. It all started with my well placed rage towards one pocoGRANDES. Though I'd still like to know the games or series that tend to shock you when people say they haven't played them. That being said, I'd also like to know what games/series you haven't played that people are always on your case about.
I don't even care which one you play. They're all wonderful and challenging platformers. Even DKC3 is great, even though everyone always hates on it! You owe it to yourself to try one out. Even if you end up hating it, at least you'll know. I recommend DKC2, as it has fantastic level design and stand out music. I'm looking at you Zarnyx.
That's right, another SNES classic! I managed to ware Poco down and he had no choice but to sang a copy on eBay. Excellent. Yoshi's Island is a beautifully designed third person egg shooter that's as fun to play as it looks. Plus you get to touch fuzzies and get dizzy!
Apparently all I care about are platformer... but that's not very surprising. These Rayman reboots are prettier than Yoshi's Island and have smoother gameplay than any Donkey Kong Country title. It's just plain enjoyable madness.
Final Fantasy (Except TheatRhythm... which I don't think counts)
Grand Theft Auto Anything
Metal Gear Solid
The Elder Scrolls
Gears of War
God of War
Basically any game that's a First Person Shooter
So, what games do you think everyone needs to play? What titles have you skipped over that dismay others? Let me know in the comments below.
