The Top 7... Should Have Sucked



PUZZLE QUEST

Why it should've sucked: You swap colored gems to form rows and columns of three. Seriously, that's the gameplay. If you think it sounds a lot like Bejeweled, which is free and readily available online, you're wrong. It sounds exactly like Bejeweled, which is free and readily available online. Except in Puzzle Quest, you also get to be bored by a bunch of random role-playing.

Why it doesn't: In Puzzle Quest, simple gem swapping is given miraculous significance. A trio of rubies doesn't just look pretty; it can give you the power of magical fire. A line up of gold causes a windfall of cash. Three skulls deal damage to your opponent. Yes, opponent. The biggest shock of Puzzle Quest - perhaps the biggest shock of 2007 - is that competitive Bejeweled is an absolute blast. What's next, multiplayer Minesweeper?

    yep! at first when i found that my big bro had gotten Innocent Life - A Futuristic Harvest Moon for me, i thought it would be an amazing demon smashing RPG (LoL) but when i actually played it, i was like "Farming?????? WTF?". I left the game there and then bt when my lil bro started playing it with a dedicated passion and when i really got bored, i started PLAYING it. AND I WAS ADDICTED!!! ONE OF THE BEST PSP GAMES EVER!! ............... Fast forward two years later, i'm searching for a list of best Harvest Moon games that I can emulate on my PC and play. Currently playing HM - Back To nature :3 :D

    I need to know. Do you build the city and stuff in the sims, or do you only control one person. Every time I look at the game it makes it unclear. Also, I have only played 1 game on this list. Also...4TH!

    Hmmm, maybe gamers are better at living someone else's lives then their own. Probably because they get an over view of their situation.
