Oooh, tricky. I honestly can't think of a single game I've played that you haven't. Even down to obscure stuff like truck dismount (still got a higher score than you, result!).
In fact the ONLY game (given a lot of thought) I can think of I don't think you've played is Evil Genius, and I wouldn't even recommend that. Lol.
well havent a clue what you played and i havent played many obscure games but heres a couple i wouldnt mind your take on.
Z (yup thats it just Z old game but i loved every minute of it plus it was very different for its time and the humour in the game was awesome)
Pretty sure i be able to recommend a few more when i get home and go thro my collection
Just start on Empire Total War...
Supposed to be games I haven't reviewed...
<QUOTE>It takes two hours each way,</QUOTE>
I'd be playing "Find me a new job!".
This'll be quite difficult - there are those of us who are so lazy we don't play things you haven't reviewed and recommended.
Forged Alliance! I'm fairly sure bit-tech hasn't reviewed it. If they/you have, ignore me!
The Last Express
Oh, and also Just Cause (free-roaming GTA style on tropical island). It's got some flaws and gets repetitive but if you just go with the helicopter-hijacking flow it's great fun for a while.
After clearing out me old room at my parents house I came across my hoard of old games. Amongst a whole load, two that caught my eye were the Tex Murphy adventures - Under a Killing Moon and the sequel Pandora Directive. It's been a while since I played them, (I should fire them up in DosBox soon!), but they were very entertaining with the dry sense of humour, the tricky puzzles and of course all of the 6 CD spanning FMV, which was all the rage at the time.
Enter the Matrix. It's kind of crappy, but if you like the movies, it's also a little bit cool.
I'm sure I've seen reviews of both Just Cause and Enter The Matrix. Maybe it wasn't Joe's though!
No One Lives Forever 1 & 2. Classics.
second both of them, great games and chances are you haven't played one of it.
Joe, play Diablo 2!
Not played that, so it's on the list.
Another game I've been meaning to play.
Played (and blogged about) multiples times.
Played Enter the Matrix, but not Just Cause = on the list.
Not played either of those, though I have heard of them. On the list.
This is my favourite suggestion - I've been meaning to play this for a LONG time. Jordan Mechner is one of my favourite designers and, from what I hear, if you're willing to embrace the game's unusual mechanic then it's almost infinitely replayable.
Keep them coming!
Possibly the most underrated game of all time was X Wing Alliance. Really top game. If you enjoy that also look at Starlancer. Underrated game!
God, I am actually too intimidated by your game knowledge Im too afraid to suggest anything
Edit: that sounds sarcastic, its not
Edit 2: DAMN so does that!
How about Tribes Vengeance? That was an oft overlooked game with a Shakespearean quality single player story line. Plus, in how many other games do you get to play as a completely unarmed 10 year old girl (only for a little while though...)?
Other than that, come to the dark side, play some Diablo 2...
