It's the end of the year, a time of reflection, both of oneself and of the society they live in everyday. In this case, we're talking about those who play games. Very often, we tend to look back at their personal Game of the Year; other times, they focus on the worst games they played during the year. However, I've noticed a constant lack of people talking about those games played by almost no-one but them. They may be hidden gems, they may be mediocre games forgotten about within the week of release. They may be that one game you say to yourself, "Was I the only one who played this?"
This year, I wanted to contribute to the whole GB community by creating a list of games that were overlooked, rarely played by people outside of a few others, or just flat out forgotten about. However, I only have two games I can think of:
- Lost Planet 3 (Wasn't this announced 4 years ago?)
- The Swapper (a.k.a. That One Puzzle-Platformer That Isn't Gunpoint Patrick Likes)
I've racked my brain for hours thinking of other games fitting this classification, but, ironically enough, I can't remember many. This is where you come in: all I need is for you to post about that one game you remember but not many people remember came out this year. It can be a console exclusive; a small indie game on PC; a Flash game; whatever. So long as you can put the month and year it came out (and a few personal words you have to share about the game), I'm OK with it. An exact date would be preferable, but a month and year will do.
The reason I'm creating this forum thread is simple: I want to help in the preservation of games as much as I can. Hopefully, this will become a place to come back to for reference's sake.
As stated above, all I need is for everyone to post at least one game you think will be forgotten by the end of the year otherwise. State the date of its release (month and year will do fine) in your post.
That's it. Thanks again for taking the time to read this post. I hope to hear from all of you soon.
