    I've said it before and I'll say it again--Saboteur is one of my favorite games. Sure, it wasn't perfect by any means, however, I rarely got frustrated with it even with its imperfect controls. That's saying a lot since I get easily frustrated with Assassin's Creed, and its controls are much smoother. I am soooo glad I picked it up from one of the game shops going out of business. I have played through it 3 times now, and always look forward to playing it again. LA Noire is also another huge hit with me, but I'm only a ways through the vice desk. I actually forgot its developer went under. It's an amazing game and it's a real shame the company didn't have better business practices. Big Huge Games really hurt to see go under, especially since I was a massive fan of their Rise of Nations/Legends series. My dad and I played that tons, and I still really want to go back and play it. I've played the Kingdoms of Amalur demo, and it's something I'd love to look into some more. If I can find a cheap copy, I'll buy it.

    Split/Second 2 would have been legendary.....

    Did I read a GamesRadar feature that had every reason to, but didn't, include Okami ?

    The Saboteur was pretty good until an awful multi-layered mission half way through with terrible checkpoints. But I always regret not finishing it. Exploring Paris was great though. I wish more games used the city as a setting. If only it had been developed by Ubisoft - they probably could have gotten the movement and missions perfect for what the rest of the game tried to do.

    Homefront looked so cool. They hyped it up like it would focus on guerrilla warefare and hit and run tactics, but then it was just COD clone #98349. A shame.

    Black Isle just opened back up, actually. Well, if this website is to be believed. http://www.blackisle.com/

    It's Todd McFarlane, not Shawn

    The Saboteur was actually a pretty underrated game. It was a great over the top stupid fun game, and there is nothing wrong with stupid fun

    Good to hear, I just ordered it a couple of days ago :D

    This title reminded me of Halo Wars being Ensemble Studios' last game.

    I think Sierra Entertainment and Evil Genius should be on this list.

    I'm still convinced Pandemic died because of Mercenaries 2. The game, albeit fun in spurts, was a buggy disaster that broke down about 70% of the time. Which, ironically enough, I heard that Mercs 2 turned out so crappy because EA made them rush the development.. and then shut them down afterwards. Go figure. Also, Homefront was probably the ultimate missed opportunity of 2011. The premise and the multiplayer were good, but the single-player was embarrassingly short and had WAY too much of the "America, FUCK YEAH" mentality going for it.

    Seeing this article's headline and I just knew that this was going to be depressing. The Sabotuer was an amazing game and I always thought that it should of received more attention. Split second was okay.

    You didn't miss mine, which is Dark Alliance II. The worst part is that there's a teaser for a Dark Alliance 3 at the end, but that'll never happen now. I also enjoyed Pandemic's games, and it was a shame to see them closed down. I particularly liked the Mercenaries games, but The Saboteur was fun too.

    I love this game. Its so fun. And so pimp. I always rent my games before i buy em. But i love this game sean devlen is so fucking cool. He is up the with all the cool game heros in my book. Awsome cars. Great story. I fucking love it. My only complaint about the game is the lack of music on the radio stations in cars. I think theres like 4 total songs in all. But god damn if you like blowing shit up and killing nazis this is great. I think ill watch some inglourious bastards and play this game right now. Love it people that made it... Good shit. Btw gamesradar your website needs some fucking work just trying to post a message on mobile devices is a real 56k pain in the arsh.

    The truly sad thing here is that I have played about 3/4 of these games and had a blast with them. Were they genre defining? No, but they were a lot of fun to play and sadly that doesn't seem to be what videogames are supposed to be about these days. Hell I even picked up Bloodstone for cheap and had a great time with it despite mediocre reviews.
  • profile0000 - August 22, 2012 6:16 p.m.

    Yeah, same here. I played maybe half of this list and had a good time with all of them. It's sad indeed.

    Shed a tear for those that have been lost to the ebb and flow of time. Celebrate the vibrancy of their life and preserve it by carrying them on in the warm embrace of memory.
