    No Ratchet & Clank? I'm surprised, given how much you guys loved Into the Nexus.

    What about Minecraft? It's so much better than the games on this list!
  • joe-hill - October 13, 2014 3:32 p.m.

    no its not

    Minecraft is a sandbox game no story just fooling around so it can't qualify to be on this list

    That is quite a popular misconception, but it is not true. Minecraft is a game set in a post-apocalyptic world, where most villagers have been killed. The remaining have been recruited by the Dark Forces, and turned into zombies. The Dark Forces are at full power at night, and they unleash themselves only then. Your objective is to survive, build and become powerful enough to defeat the leader of these Forces, the Ender Dragon. Well, Minecraft's story may be a bit cliché, but well, the game is too fun to not like.

    Man, I loved Shadows of Memories. I remember walking to the mall to purchase at EB Games way back when for my PS2 for $40 (the story really intrigued me). Now I can't wait for Murdered: Soul Suspect which looks to be somewhat similar.

    I am kinda disappointed not to see Devil May Cry on here seeing as there are usually 6-8 playthroughs to the games...

    I found just cause 2 good after i finished it (twice) since just like gta5, you get a bunch of cash and can explore the world alot more eg racing on bandah selekeh, visiting the mile high club and even going to the presidents fortress. Very good.
  • not-john-locke - October 20, 2014 10:44 p.m.

    I played Just Cause 2 to 98% (never could get into the racing missions) on my 360, which later died. I replaced it with a PS3, and i just recently picked up a copy of Just Cause 2 for it, with the intention of finally getting to 100%, but we'll see how well that goes. I had as much fun with that game as with any game, ever.

    Im so glad they put borderlands 2 in here. I have played that game over and over and I still am.not bored with it. Its in my top five favs of all time. UVHM is hard as hell at times by yourself especially in the dlc but soooo much fun and when you have characters like tiny tina mr torgue mad moxxi and claptrap to entertain you it makes the experience even better

    If Shadow of Memories makes the list based on storytelling technique, then 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors - and, even more so, it's sequel, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last reward - definitely need to be on here... both because of their amazing stories with shocking plot twists, alternate dimensions, deep characters and several endings, though only one "true" ending per game. I can highly recommend these games to everyone - apart from "TL;DR"-people, as they are rather text-heavy.

    How did Dishonored not make this list? That game can be played multiple ways after beating it with different powers each time.

    I've put about 300 hours into Dark Souls and still haven't tried NG+ beyond the Asylum. I am too obsessed with getting as best value out of my playthroughs as possible before moving on (farm, max upgrade everything, etc.). Really need to just move on with one of my characters.. but man, I still have a lot more builds to try, I don't know when I'm going to move on.. Overall, really one of my favorite games. Such a shame Demon's Souls is PS3 only; I may never get to play it..
  • g1rldraco7 - November 9, 2013 6:30 a.m.

    I do need to play-through Dark Souls even though the difficulty is soul breaking beyond belief.
  • Clovin64 - November 9, 2013 2:15 a.m.

    I agree with the Dark Souls mention, but not for the reasons you stated. After all, that tension and fear you feel in your initial playthrough is what makes the world so entertaining and compelling to explore. Its like when you and a buddy explored dark forests as kids, even though it was getting pretty late and dark, you still just wanted to push through and explore the woods a little more. I think the real joy of Dark Souls NG+ (and NG++, and NG+++, and NG++++...) is getting stuck into the online multiplayer aspect. Getting your characters stats just right, creating the perfect build, getting the best equipment all to prepare for some PvP back-stab-happy duels. Helping out other players on tough battles you initially had lots of trouble with is also a pretty darn good feeling. Then you experiment with the different guilds.

    Platinum'd/100% Lego Lord of the Rings, every Pokemon game excluding all Gen V games, every Castlevania game (including the unmentionably horrid N64 entries) (Symphony of the Night is also the easiest Castlevania game ever), Borderlands 2, Super Mario 3D Land, and Rocksteady's Arkham series. Booyah.

    Gonna have to try Shadow of the Memories if I can get the chance. Great article and it's always fun when even after the main game you still have more to do. Super Mario 3D Land especially, what it did was a really good idea except that 3D Land relied on to the point where it wont be satisfying at all without it instead if extra, like Mario Galaxy 2's Green Stars treasure hunt, the game was already satisfying with the end of the main part and special world but the Green Stars added more icing to make it more tasty.

    No Wonderful 101? How else are you gonna unlock Wonderful-Bayonetta, Jeane, and Rodin?
