Plesant Surprise games

Halo 4. Thought it would be just another cup of cow milk, but to my surprise it became my favorite Halo. I know it's the PS3 board, but that was the most recent pleasant surprise for me. Seriously though, stop making Halo's.

4 was the start of a new trilogy.

What games did you expect that you wouldn't like ,but end up liking.

Er, I think the First Sonic And All-Stars Racing game is one for me. Got it for a gift, didn't exactly think It would be good since most Mario Kart Clones are mediocre at best. Ended up loving it.


It isn't a Mario Kart clone.

It is more like the polished version of that Diddy Racing on the 64 with the giant purple magic hippo, etc.

Even the most positive remark can provoke inappropriate responses. Thus, we ALL troll.

As weird as this sounds, Nier.

It was a surprise for me since it passed completely under my radar until four days from release. I bought it on a whim since it looked interesting and the story just promptly blew my mind. Sleeper hit of the decade imo.


Going with this. I pretty much played it for kicks with hardly any knowledge on it. Didn't even take it serious at first. And then when I first got to the village and heard devola singing that song. Voice was beautiful and the fad in effect as I got closer was a nice touch. Was pretty impressed by that and started taking it more serious.


My favorite rpg this gen. Wasn't until later that I realized that it was connected to drakengard, which I also liked. Made it even better

I'll eat a sock if VersusXIII is actually a mind blowing game.

Nier

Expected a decent game. Got a superb one, one of my favorites of the entire generation.

Folklore



Very linear, but very fun. Amazing setting and environment.

Borderlands 2, I preordered it and got borderlands 1 free and I hated borderlands 1 when I played it. Borderlands 2 was great though.

The Walking Dead

I had nothing else to do the night the 3rd episode dropped, so I bought the season pass. I had not read up on the game, so I had no idea what I was in for.
