Hitman Blood Money is a great choice. I didn't really like the first couple Hitman games so I passed on it when it came out. But then later on I gave it a shot and couldn't stop playing it for a couple days. It had some great varied locations, really fun gameplay and disguises and was a blast overall.



Another great game that doesn't get much mention anymore (despite getting amazing reviews):



This is one of the top 5 FPS of all-time for me. Great gameplay, cool varied locations and not just warehouses full of crates and some genuinely funny moments and dialogue.

Okami on the Wii/PS2 was one of the better action RPGs I have played in the last several years yet hardly anyone knows about it.
eh, any true video game fan who is into action RPG's or anything artsy knows about this game.

Yes! the warriors was a great game.. Don't know how many times me and my mate went through that on co-op.

One game that me and my mates also really enjoyed was Sega Soccer Slam, NBA Jam mixed with soccer and it was really well done, lots of unlockables a nice variety of modes and teams and awesome in co-op.

It really comes to life as a co-op game, I too have played it inside out with a mate. There is something really fun about looting, mugging and bottling police with a mate.

Default Re: Great games that don't get the recognition they deserve.

For me, it's Valkyrie Profile.




It was a very weird RPG for it's time, but very good. The story (without too much spoilers here) revolved around you playing as a Valkyrie who's job was to harvest the souls of the bravest warriors on the earth. You basically watch or interact in events where every character who joins you dies :P Then you take their souls and they fight for you.

It was a really interesting way to go about a game, and was also pretty fun for it's time too. Towards the end it had some extremely difficult fights and levels though, like Lezard's Tower.





They're since made a sequal, a remake, and a spinoff, but they weren't as good as the first one.

vagrant story

Good pick with Vagrant Story. I was actually thinking of posting that instead of Valkyrie Profile for my pick. That was a really fun game.

I think this one got lost among all the other good RPGs on the psx. I really enjoyed it. It was pretty linear but that didn't make it any less fun. I'm a little hazy on most of the details but I remember the story being pretty cool and I know I really enjoyed the game.


I also really liked Arc the Lad when they released the collection in the US. It was your standard rpg with the addition of guilds and like side quest/jobs that you could take for more stuff.

After the hype of Tony Hawks died down and shortly before it's sequel this skateboarding game completely dicked on the Hawk Series. The best way to describe this game is Skate mixed in with an 80's old school hip hop soundtrack and a load more character.

This game did recieve good reviews however in comparrison to the Hawk series it did not sell. It never had a sequel and since has never been referenced when talking about some of the best skateboarding games.
