What is this thread about?  

 
Well, say you have a game that you love and want a game similar to it but are having trouble finding something then this is the thread for you! Even if the game is getting a sequel and you want something similar to it to hold you over. 
 

Why make this  thread?  

 
There are a lot of games out there that people either don't take notice of or have no idea how similar it is to their tastes. I thought why not make a thread where the community can help people find some gems judging by their taste in game.   
 Please state WHY you enjoy the game. Let's say Mass Effect, do you like the story, the gameplay or the setting, etc. By doing this the community will have an easier time finding a game that will match your tastes. 
 
Have fun finding some great games out there!

@JoyfullOFrockets: Zone of the Enders isn't quite Omega Boost, but it's pretty rad. It's also made by Kojima, so ... y'know.  Crazy space robots.  It's slower paced, sadly, but it has its moments. 
 
I also feel Rez kind of captures some of the feel of Omega Boost. But anyone who likes games should have played Rez already, so I assume you knew that.  =D

I love that game, I actually just played it for an article I made over at 411mania. I agree with this sentiment. 
 
If you like kind-of janky, low-rent but ultimately fun fantasy action-RPGs, you might like Mount & Blade Warband.

Try Zone of the Enders. It's slower paced, though.

If you like Half Lives you might like Prey.
 
Both are linear, story driven, sci-fi FPSs. I feel like I'm going to get lynched for writing this,

If you like Resident Evil 4 you might like Dead Space 2. This might be a stretch but they are both "survival horror" games that are heavily action based and I obsessed over both of them for about 3 weeks each.
 
@BeachThunder: I can see where you are coming from but I don't think Prey is anywhere near Half-Life in terms of actual game quality . I liked the idea just fine but I thought the gameplay was boring and the level design was por in most spots and worse than that in others.  However, the fact that I played HL2 when it came out and Prey in 2009 could have had some effect on my opinions of both games.

That makes sense, Dead Space started development as System Shock 3.

I remember hearing something like that too. 
Let's all hope it was just a bad dream and that System Shock 3 is actually happening
