Why are there no undersea games, I'm on 360 so really talking console based.And I'm not talking about walking from one area to another like they did in Bioshock 2 but proper under sea games. Ecco the Dolphin doesn't count. Space has been done to death as has above sea locations so why not undersea?

Way back in the day "Treasures of the Deep" was a pretty cool game. Very early game to offer 3D movement. I don't know how well it holds up, but the final boss is what appears to be a Summoner mech walking around on the ocean floor.

Why the fuck isn't there a page for Treasures of the Deep?

Wasn't there a shooter recently released with a heavy underwater emphasis? It had a designation like Episode 1 or something.

Edit: Ahh yeah, it was Deep Black: Episode 1 (as Pazy mentioned earlier)

The underwater portion, where you have to explore a sunk cruiser ship, in Tomb Raider 2 was probably one of the most atmospheric and tense parts of the game (THAT DAMN EEL). There was also Ocean Hunter for arcades.

There's also XCOM: Terror From the Deep.

I would imagine that most games don't take place underwater due to the fact that nobody enjoys water levels in ANYTHING. I can't think of a single game that was entirely underwater in the sense that you're talking about and still did well at retail. Seems to me like a concept that most developers would want to avoid.

I'd play an entire Rayman underwater game if they kept that bomb ass Gregorian chanting music for the entire thing.

Alice Madness Returns has a whole long stage where you are platforming underwater, but other than that underwater levels generally tend to suck. (DKC not included)

There was a big chunk of Grim Fandango that took place underwater, that was kind of neat.

Most water-based games flounder fail for a good reason - they suck.
