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.

Game #1 You Need to Play - Donkey Kong Country (The Original Trilogy)


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.

Game #2 You Need to Play - Yoshi's Island


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!

Game #3 You Need to Play - Rayman Origins/Legends


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.

Games I've Never Played (Please Don't Hurt Me)


Final Fantasy (Except TheatRhythm... which I don't think counts)

Grand Theft Auto Anything

Metal Gear Solid

Tomb Raider

Resident Evil

Assassin's Creed


The Elder Scrolls

Gears of War

God of War



Basically any game that's a First Person Shooter
