ALSO KID ROCK UP YOUR 2014 GAME TRAILERS

Good to see that 2K recognise Kid Rock's authenticity.

I feel like I'm the only one who ever played Brave Fencer Musashi. It's never mentioned

You definitely aren't the only one. It's surely one of my all-time favorites! And it deserves more love than it gets.

I'm gonna go ahead and throw Cold Winter into this thread. I bought it used at Blockbuster for like $7 years and years ago, not knowing what to expect. All I knew was that I wanted a new FPS to play, and this game very fit that very broad requirement. As it turned out, it was FUCKING AMAZING. I couldn't believe how much I loved this game. Console FPS's from this generation were largely hit or miss, mostly miss. There were plenty of exceptions, however, and Cold Winter handily lands itself in the upper tier among, let's say, the top 5 console shooters of this era.

It didn't exactly do anything new, but what it did, it did VERY well. The gunplay felt so damn solid and impactful, thanks to a combination of awesome sound effects, ragdoll physics, and disgusting Solider of Fortune-levels of gore. The story wasn't anything outstanding in and of itself, but the way it was told was well above average for games of that day, made even better by some pretty good voice acting and big moments. The protagonist, Andrew Sterling, is undoubtedly a badass. The structure of the game was linear and level-based, taking some cues from No One Lives Forever in its delivery of objectives and encouragement of exploration to find documents that fleshed out the story. It also had a simple crafting system, where you would use random objects like alarm clocks, bottles, hairpins, and other shit to make makeshift explosives, lock-picks, etc. The Last of Us' crafting system is nearly identical. It had online MP that was pretty neat, but I didn't play it until the tail-end of its existence.

It's too bad no one played this awesome game. I think there was originally a sequel in development, but it sadly got canned. I would still highly recommend this game anyone looking for good old shooters, though.

Aye, I enjoyed it quite a bit too at the time. Not as good as Urban Chaos: Riot Response though!

Yup, playing through Borderlands 2, literally have no idea what I'm doing except got to the diamond on the map and shot whatever is there. Perfect for listening to Bombcasts or watching GI Joe, which is why I'm playing Borderlands 2.

Come on guys, let's not forget that these guys did make the Brothers in Arms games many moons ago.

Never played those so I'm going off of Borderlands and Duke Nukem

Yeah, you maybe should. Very overlooked series, offered a really unique take on the WWII shooter at the time.

Gearbox easily

How did I not think of that. Gearbox is the worst. They aren't funny or interesting, just boring and frustratingly low effort.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Star Wars 1313!

Agent

TimeSplitters 4

Aliens RPG (The Obsidian One)

Prey 2 (assuming it's cancelled)

Untitled Raven Software James Bond Game (love anything those guys do)

Shangheist (The Black Tusk game, I wanted to see more)

This is Vegas

Bulletstorm 2 (Technically never announced but it's been acknowledged several times)

Dead Rush (That open world zombie game that Activision were publishing in the PS2 era, basically Dead Rising 3 has done that now)

That's all I can think of for now!

Can't wait to see a new shooter from him. Even Daikatana, which does suck, had some really cool ideas.

Yep, not entirely surprising. Even during better days, GameSpot were notorious for introducing and killing off video series' regularly.

Both T1 and T2 are dope, there's no doubt about that but I do think T3 and Salvation aren't too bad either. They're just nothing compared to the first two.
