Probably the Souls games. They might be a little too popular, though.




Those games may have a cult following....but are FAR from classics.


Demons souls will go down as a classic without question. Dark already has people turning on it compared to when it came out and Demons has been thrown in the mix for best game of the gen quite a few times.

It will be a classic in about 8 years or so, but for now, its still too soon.

I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

Nier has a pretty dedicated cult following. Not sure if it's "classic" status, but there's some potential there.

Tecmo Super Bowl. Communities out there are still modding the old game files and updating them with current team rosters. They have even allowed the ability to have all 32 current NFL teams instead of the original 28 that were on the game.

Most of the infinity engine games like Baldurs Gate and Planescape Torment have huge followings and people that still play them regularly.


This is true. Particularly of Planescape. That's about as close to the definition of cult classic as you can get.

The only other one I can think of is Earthbound. That's like the console version of Planescape, in terms of it's cult classic-ness.

Those aren't really cult classics. Those are straight up classics. They were well received and sold fairly well.

And add the fact that the newer Fallout games has created tons of more fans for the series, that many of them go back and try the older ones out.
