Looking to buy some Forgotten Gems

56 posts in this topic

Afrika. The game got pretty bad reviews, and it's next to impossible to find now, but I loved it so much. It's really just driving around African nature and finding, and photographing, animals, but I had a great time 😂 I never understood the bad reviews, but the driving was indeed a bit clunky.

Good suggestions, but some of these games on Amazon and eBay are fucking expensive due to their rarity. Any way to obtain them without paying an arm and a leg?

Pawn shops have been flush with all types of cool shit the past year.

I would throw Splatterhouse in the mix, tasteless but 'laugh out loud' fun.  I heard Blades of Time is pretty good. Killer is Dead is another cool title and Dante's Inferno.

 

 

Mercari is also another place you can buy games.

I'm cheating with this one but I can't help myself. I always recommend Valkyria Chronicles when it comes to hidden gems. 

 

Amazing watercolour art style set in an alternate version of WW2 in a fictional continent similar to Europe.

 

A tactical RPG that deserves more exposure and the best part is that it is remastered on PS4 with enhanced graphics, all dlc on disc and trophy support.

If you like warriors games, one of my personal favorites of the generation is Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3. Still my favorite warriors game to date.

I just bought The Saboteur and i am genuinely excited to play it. I feel the PS3 generation had quite a few gems that kinda faded away. Personally I loved Wet and folklore but i know that i will never get a sequel or HD remaster. 

 

What are some forgotten or under appreciated games i should look into getting? I'm thinking maybe prototype 2 (although i think it was on PS now recently)

This was my first plat I believe. Fantastic, can not recommend it enough.

FPS:

Singularity

Syndicate

The Darkness II

 

RPG / Action:

3D Dot Game Heroes

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

Lollipop Chainsaw

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

 

Indie/ Small:

Critter Crunch

Also - agree on The Saboteur - great game - such a pity it was Pandemic's swansong!

Some good games but there is an online trophy in Counterspy that I believe is unobtainable now.

Yes, I believe that is the case - it's not for anything hugely gameplay affecting though, so still worth a play if your looking for some 60's inspired super-spy sleuthing!

My first recommendation for this question is always Bionic Commando https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/89-bionic-commando . I love this game, especially the brilliant gameplay and the unique setting but also the rest of the game aged really well: solid frame rate (never below 30), graphic style which still looks a lot better than most games of the time and you get the game for like 5€. The story is quite bald but who really cares if a game plays that well?!

My go to is Lollipop Chainsaw, but a lot of people have already vouched for it, so I'll say Katamari.

I never got around to it but loved the demo and have always heard good things about it: Folklore. Think this was pre-trophy update. I would look for it myself but my PS3's disc player died. 😢
