Hm, I can't seem to find Front Mission (TBT) and Front mission: Gun Hazard (2D Platformer). I think both are very enjoyable games, what do others think?
I haven't played original Stalker as I heard it was less immersive but absolutely loved Call of Pripyat for its immersion, heard others saying it was the best game of the series too so it might do better as a showcase game of the series.
Thanks for reminding me of URW, I completely forgot about it. I remember playing it long ago, getting eaten by wolves and dying of cold and hunger while trying to finish a hut. Gotta give it another try.
Battletoads might be a bit overrated as I haven't played it for a long long time, so might be my nostalgia goggles working.
ONI is one of the few western games that used moon stylistic and actually made it good if not better than what japs do, though that's not the reason. Gameplay is solid, has both fighting and shooting elements and overall made well for a 3rd person game. I replayed it a few years ago and enjoyed it.
Age of Wonders specifically AoW2: Shadow Magic
is a very good turn-based strategy, with actually different factions and extensive magic system that allowed to terraform the map.
Modern AoW3 failed at that, though I somehow enjoyed AoW:Planetfall. Neither are worth adding to the list.
Nox is something that stemmed from Diablo but went completely different way. Isometric action-RPG not much RPG though, except for the class choice
with stuff like jumping, blocking and line of sight, plus puzzles, secret and enemies that can kick your ass really fast.
Also worth mentioning that the game has a very nice magic in it as all the spells are different and useful, with lots being utility spells. It's probably the closest thing to what I think magic should look like in games instead of what we see in almost every game - color-flavored elementnameball dispenser simulator.
Tyrian, I don't really like shmups, so for a casual-shmup player like me it's very nice, all those levels, music, upgrades, branching paths, hard not to enjoy that. Replayed it a few years ago too.
Worth mentioning game having an android version, it's playable and is actually a game unlike almost everything mobile-related.
I put up those games because I do recommend them, so if anyone haven't played those, you have stuff to look forward to and see for yourself why they are worthy to be included here.
Now that you mention it, I don't see it on the list.
I loved it a lot though, matter of taste. Btw the guy that made music for Tyrian also made music for Jazz Jackrabbit 2, Unreal Tournament, Deus Ex...
Descent was nice, it wasn't a game I absolutely loved but I enjoyed it and damn it did taught me how to orient in 3d space maze
. I bet normalfags will get their asses blasted off from simply trying to play it and that without the part where you have escape the mine before it self-destructs.
