Requests & Recs

There are tons of games out there, and while I’d like to get to everything as quickly as possible, it’s going to take me awhile. Thus, I’d like to give you, the reader, a chance to make a case for which games you’d like to see take precedent.

Do you have a favorite game that you’d like to see me cover? Maybe a hidden gem, or something that seems a little off my radar? I’d love to hear which games you think are important or worthy of a closer look. I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to get to everything in a timely fashion (and I certainly can’t promise what my opinion on any one game will be), but I’ll definitely take suggestions seriously and try to make those titles priorities.

Just leaves a comment below, and be sure to include:

  • The game’s title
  • Release date
  • Availability (Which consoles, system requirements for PC, price point, etc.)
  • Why you love this game or think it’s worthy of attention

As always, thanks for reading! I look forward to your input.

    I do hope you can check out Papo & Yo for the PS3 if possible. It was released early last year and costs about $14.99 but is perhaps one of the most emotional story I’ve come across in the videogame medium. It’s a semi-autobiographical story of the main developer and deals with a number of real-world social issues.

      I was really excited when I saw trailers for Papa & Yo. The graphics looked very Ico-y, and pairing that aesthetic with such an emotional story definitely intrigues me. I got kind of sidetracked by playing all these older games, but I have a PS3 and definitely want to check it out soon!

  2. I’m going to recommend Cave Story. It’s an “indie game” (entirely created by one person) that came out in 2004. Its a side scrolling platformer that’s reminiscent of Metroid, and a bunch of other SNES/Genesis era games. It has good gameplay, a simultaneously retro and original feel to it, and surprisingly good music, It’s pretty impressive that the entire game was created by one guy in his free time over the course of 5 years, while in college, and then working a day job full time. It’s worth playing through if you have the time, and it’s not an extraordinarily long game. Best of all, its free, and you can download it on your PC right here:

      I’ve played Cave Story off and on for the past few weeks! It’s an incredible game that seems to have a lot of hidden depth, and the passion of the man who made it just shows through on every level. Can’t wait to get more into it.
