Saints Row: The Third - People who played 1 and 2 think it sucks, people new to the series love it
Operation Darkness - People complain about the graphics, but it's a SRPG, so graphics don't really matter, and one of the best in that genre on 360
Alpha Protocol - it's like baby deus ex!
XCOM Enemy Unknown - It's mostly fanboys of the original who say it's bad
Would you kindly do a barrel roll?

-The Last Remnant
Put so many hours into that game. For me it was the best jrpg of this gen. Personally I thought it was much better than Xenoblade, FF XIII, or Lost Odyssey. It was good to see a jrpg actually try to do something new and different within a turn-based battle system. Most other people seemed to hate it though. Too bad. I was really hoping for a sequel.


Yes Yes Yes.

I remember fighting a 2-3 hour long turn based battle--one of the bigger battles in the game iirc(two girls at the end), went in "little" underpowered.I literally danced after defeating them lol

Such a glorious game,would get Rango for the sequel.

For some reason I had a really good time with Dragon Age 2.

Final Fantasy 13: Finally an rpg where i don't have to have a headache about armor upgrades/management and getting lost in the world map along a slew of other things common in most rpg's.

In that game I can just sit back relax and focus on the battles and very beautiful scenic, straight-forward, roller-coaster rides aswell a fantastic abstract story, it's a shame the devs gave into the "fans".

Izuna DS: Hard but in a way where a lot of deaths are your own fault (of course you can get unfortunate from time to time), the music also seemed to set off my nostalgia sensors.

Shadow the Hedgehog. While I won't say it is great, it isn't terrible. You can play it without the game crashing or bugging out on you, and it features a good amount of stages and missions to do.

Also, Kirby Air Ride. I think too many people are just turned away by a literal one button control scheme, but the game is still amazingly fun. Anyone can pick it up and know how to play it after 5 minutes, and city trial I could play for hours and not get bored.

I liked Dragon Age 2. I really enjoyed it, was probably the game that got me into rpgs. So for that I am thankful. It was just so different from anything else I had played, and now, I am a bit of an rpg addict.

Well...I liked DmC, and FF13. FF13-2 was decent.

Duke Nukem Forever.


This. It was just out of its time by a decade or so. If the same game were released ten years ago the reception would have been so much better.
I don't a fondness to Borat. I don't how it did outrageous; haven't they ever interneted? We have Goat's Sea and Celebrating Lemons. - Gandob
