Does Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines count as an FPS to you?

#3 Posted by mnzy (2911 posts) -

Well, what do you like? I would say Vanquish or Shadows of the Damned from the top of my head.

Was going to say Shadows of the Damned since it's so recent.

While I'll agree that Vampire is a pretty skill game, you'll notice he posted this in the Xbox 360 forum.

already played both of them.
 
shadows was meh, but VANQUISH IS THE MOST CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED GAME IVE EVER PLAYED that thing is a freaking classic.
 
 @rudeboy217: always meant to play Nier, but always seemed to forget about it. i guess it's time to give it a shot. 
 
thanks for all the suggestions everyone.
 
anyone else that reads this thread looking for something to play, go play vanquish. do it now.

We talkin' strictly X360 here right?

#14 Posted by phrali (646 posts) -
@imsh_pl: well i have ps3 also, so i'd be open to any suggestion on that system as well.
#15 Posted by Simulacrum (462 posts) -

Definitely play Nier.

#16 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

@phrali:

What if I played Vanquish for a few hours but found it really boring? D:

Resonance of Fate

This, This, This, This, This.

#17 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

Nier is the only one I can think of.

#18 Posted by imsh_pl (3295 posts) -
@phrali: Valkyria Chronicles then, if you haven't checked that one yet already.
 
I wouldn't necessarily call it "underrated" but it might have slipped under your radar.
#19 Posted by phrali (646 posts) -
@Cloudenvy: GET OUT YOU PHILISTINE jk, whatevs, it's your opinion, but i was completely blown away by that game. makes every other 3rd person shooter feel like you're moving through quicksand. give it another try if you still have a copy.
 
going to the sto to look for nier.
 
once again, thanks for all the suggestions.

Metro 2033. Little buggy but well worth the time you put into it.

#21 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

Castlevania Lords of Shadow
You won't regret it

#22 Posted by BaconGames (3290 posts) -

Anomaly: Warzone Earth is 3 bucks on Steam right now.

No but you might prefer playing GoW instead if that's what you're looking for.

Ok, I'm not sure if you have a PS2 availible to you, but if you liked Vanquish you may like Godhand, both are made by the same people. I'd say everything Clover/Platinum has made is a little under rated. 
Maybe check out Bayonetta? 

#25 Posted by kingzetta (4307 posts) -

Alpha Protocol is the most underrated game ever.

#26 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

Big Long Johnson: The Tale of the 21st Century Porn Star. 
Now, i know what you're thinking, bananas are awesome, but this porn themed point and lick adventure game really is one of the best I've played, its up there with Grim Fandango, and yet, it's soooo underrated. Give it a try.

#27 Posted by desolation15 (113 posts) -

Does Darksiders count as underrated? I'm not "with-it" but that's a good game I don't hear much water-cooler talk about.

#28 Posted by _Horde (837 posts) -

Deadly Premonition, a game that everyone should experience!

#29 Posted by jozzy (2041 posts) -

Cool thatyou are going to try Nier out. I did that a few months ago and was totally hooked. Don't get discouraged by the weird opening.

It's like no one in the world except for seven dudes played the PC version. So much more polished the the console versions, and it's still an awesome game either way. I think the whole "Mass Effect with Spies" thing sorta killed any chance it had.

#31 Posted by Nekroskop (2786 posts) -

Dead Rising 1, and try to get all the achievements.

and it does the mass effect thing better than mass effect

Go play Dark Cloud 2 for the PS2. :) Failing that, go play Nier. The story and all 4 endings of that game are amazing.

#34 Posted by Flaime (525 posts) -

Is Darksiders considered underrated?

Also, Company of Heroes.

#35 Posted by SteamPunkJin (1286 posts) -

Oh yea, Lost Planet 2 - no joke. Grab a buddy or two and hit up some of the finest coop gaming imaginable.

This. The co-op campaign is really fun w/some friends. The bosses and the amazing and diverse levels are incredible.

#37 Posted by Nottle (1912 posts) -
@shodan2020: I saw Dark Cloud 2 at Gamestop. I heard it is really good and I'd like to play it. Do i need to get the first one and I just want to know why do you think it is good?
#38 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7613 posts) -

Alpha Protocol or Viva Pinata.

#39 Posted by TheRookie727 (57 posts) -

Limbo or Forza 3

#40 Posted by Tsoglani (583 posts) -

I recommend The Saboteur - freaking excellent AND underrated. I take it you have played Just Cause 2?
 
Otherwise, Nier is cool too. Shadows of the Damned is one of the best games I have played in recent times also.

#41 Posted by shootermcclay (219 posts) -

Valkyria Chronicles is not underrated, but it was overlooked. It is my second favorite PS3 exclusive.

#42 Posted by NTM (7263 posts) -
@phrali: Maybe not underrated, but I'm sure a lot of people haven't played it. Play Outland. The soundtrack is amazing. Listen to the whole thing, or any of the other tracks.

#44 Posted by Korwin (2825 posts) -

Lost Oddyssey is probably the best and most under rated large scale JRPG of this generation of consoles, provided your into that kind of game anyway.

#45 Posted by purpleinsect (57 posts) -

Saboteur. Everyone should play that one

#46 Edited by Zacagawea (1580 posts) -

You've probably played it but, Fallout: New Vegas is amazing and some people were a little too harsh on it when it launched

#47 Posted by Redbullet685 (6024 posts) -
#48 Posted by PulledaBrad (612 posts) -

Dunno if its considered underrated but Just Cause 2 is good for hours and hours of dumb ass fun

#49 Edited by StarvingGamer (7987 posts) -

This is a little bit older and might be hard to find, but Psi-Ops is one of the best games that no one played.

EDIT: Apparently it was released as a free-to-play download that is ad supported...? So it actually should be incredibly easy to find. EVERONE PLAY THIS GAME.

Glad to see Nier get so much love in this thread. It really is an amazing game. The music is hauntingly good.
