Games you must play before you die

category: residue [glöplog]
apologies if we have this thread somewhere already...oh well...

this is for those unheard of, non-popular titles that have gone unnoticed. ie, no Metal Gear Solids or God of Wars need apply!

I can recommend two PS2 titles which I've recently completed which are just amazinng and have restored my faith in the games industry:-

The Red Star http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJ82BbQFa1s

Okami (identical game on Wii) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOT95HPv51E

Don't know if these are popular or not, however here's a handful of gems from the 2000's:

- ICO, Shadow of the Colossus and Okami (PS2)
- Mashed & Trackmania (PS2/Xbox/PC)

Classic first person shooter series are a must. Wolf 3d, Doom, Duke Nukem 3d Atomic Ed., Quake, Painkiller, Half Life, FarCry, Crysis and of course Unreal & Unreal Tournament series.
Also original versions (or conversions from same time) of Space Invaders, PacMan, Galaxian, Boulder Dash, Tetris (gb version is best), Commando (and Bionic Commando, why not)... Classics, sir.

Master Blaster!!

the original version which had perfect gameplay which was ruined in all the later versions. Initial version is recognizable by the keyboard controls being fucked up on a1200 :)
