As the topic title says- earlier this morning was the usual couple of times a year scan the top games for a system/all time lists to see if there is something I felt like playing (either replaying or had missed out on) and despite having done this several times now there are still loads of games so I thought some discussion on the supposedly legendary games or franchises you have not played for whatever reason would be good here. Feel free also to include games you started and did not get far in or indeed games you picked up several years after the fact as it were. If you want you can include games you were only 5 years old at the time of release but that is perhaps not as relevant- some arcade classics aside (even if it was just a flash based knockoff it is damn near mandatory to have played most of the early arcade games). If you want to make a list do so, make a list with justifications do so and if you simple want to pull someone up on something (try and keep it civil) do so and equally many of these games are standards for their genre so if you have a suggestion for another title to play do that as well. Me- countless amounts of free time then and to this day, no internal "only newest games" mindset, at least I hope no "it is popular and therefore I can not be seen to be playing it" mindset, a high end computer, emulation ("real hardware" means little to me- I have a CRT monitor if necessary and third party pads were the order of the day) and ability/desire to mod consoles myself (as well as warranties just being a bit of paper they stuff in like adverts) if not along with everything that compliments such a skillset realistically means I can not justifiably say "I did not get the chance to play this" but that is me. I am ignoring some of the more modern online "only" (token efforts at a campaign do not count) shooters (thinking stuff like arma), to some extents I am ignoring sequels (I have not played a tomb raider game aside from a quick spin on one of the DS ones in years for instance) and MMO type games for the most part as they have no real appeal these days for me- world of warcraft just feels like a poor if somewhat polished retread of 90s PC RPGS with some better co-op and maybe a slightly larger level. Likewise I am willing to suffer quite a bit for a game (thinking control, camera and the like as well as "bad" games") despite the option to play just about anything (similar logic to watching "bad" films). I sense most of this is going to be a SNES, wii and PS2/PS3 list despite having emulation or access to them during and at present. No order at all for this one. Pretty much all SNES titles that did not appear on the megadrive/genesis. This despite emulation being the main reason I started down learning how computers work. God of War- I have not consciously even seen it run in a shop. Metal gear solid- I can not stand football games yet I can sit there when they are played. Not so for metal gear solid. Final Fantasy X and the main series beyond aside from a quick spin of FF12 and maybe an hour of FF13. I had not really played any final fantasy games until the late PS1 era either. Forza and gran turismo- I like car racing games for some reason but these bored me silly. Kingdom hearts- it joins the ranks of things that induce narcolepsy in me. Fable- can not get into them. Anachronox- about the only thing I am ashamed to have on this list. Ultima- if there was going to be a second thing I am ashamed about it would be this. Viewtiful Joe- never played it. Mount and blade Demon’s Souls The total war series beyond the first and expansion to it. Most mario games- the first for the NES, mario 64, NSMB and mario sunshine (although I only finished that a month ago.... pianta village designers I can only offer kudos to through gritted teeth) are the only ones I can claim to have completed. Most call of duty games. Little big planet- I have spent more time playing incredible machine clones than I care to think about. Not this though. Half life- knocked the second + expansions out over a weekend about a year and a half ago. Underwhelming to say the least. More amusingly I actually owned the first. Shenmue 2- traded my RE4 title on the gamecube for the xbox version with a friend. Never played it. Team fortress/counterstrike- the originals at least came out about the time I was interested in online PC games. Never played them. Most Zelda games- I have played the GBA entries that were original games, zelda DX, wind waker and the N64 titles but none of the others (aside from the 30 seconds it took to use the twilight hack). The only one that really bugs me is that I have not played much of the oracles titles on the GBC. Disgaea- even before standard JRPG fatigue hit (thankfully games like Resonance of fate and many of the other 360 JRPGs appeared) I did not play this. Far Cry 1 The sims- many an hour did I play Bullfrog and maxis games but I could not stand this. Sam and Max Uncharted Devil may cry- countless games of the genre and not this beyond about 20 minutes of the first. We ? Katamari- I have played more esoteric/DMT trip type games than I care to think about but never this. Killer 7 Mercenaries Jak and daxter Timesplitters Any Mario RPG title (I know it probably falls under my mario list but I mention it anyway). Fire Emblem- shining (force) is one of my favourite franchises. BioShock- I liked system shock and the idea appeals but I never did it. Most splinter cell games- I really like the ones I have played but for whatever reason I have not played anywhere near them all. Silent hill- never got around to it. F-zero- never played one and I like fast racing games. Dragon age origins- got swept aside with all the other RPGs released last year and the year before and I never got around to it. Shadow Of The Colossus and most team ico games and games like them- again never got around to it Chrono trigger- hearing people harp on about it I played it for a few hours and promptly forgot everything about it. Were it a film it would join the still less than 10 films I have turned off before the end. Enough of my list though (it could go on) so I will end with Saturn bomberman- I play megadrive or PCE bomberman to this day but it took me ages to sort this out (as in less than a year ago).
