I would have liked to see Terranigma on the list, but the games looked cool anyway

"Classic" #facepalm

Good god, what a terrible list. Not saying these are bad games. Hell, I love stuff like Conker's BFD. But most of these were barely a decade old or less when this vid came out. "Classics?" Come on, kids. Put away your FPS games for five seconds.

As a fan of horror I love Alice in Wonderland game madness returns which is why I suggest it's comeback you can't help but feel the need for classic stories to become horror games. It's a way of looking at Disney altered into something in a Wes craven or John Carpenter movie. Plus action I got so tired of the happy ending stories without fighting and blood I wanted horror movie fun. The chances to explore games in a terrifying way. Seeing a princess get rescued by the Prince dozens of times got borring as fucken laundry spinning in a dryer. Seeing the princess cut throats or shoot the shit out of enemies and I'm a happy guy. Along with explosions chases KILLS unlocks power an monsters oh yeah I say let's go and play them all night long yeah hoo.

9, The Last Resort by Robert DeNiro's defunct company Tribeca. With heavyweight voices ranging from Aerosmith's "Toxic Twins" Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, to the soothing tones of Christopher "Superman" Reeve's.

Am I the only one that was surprised by "Spec Ops" twist ending
jeremy sennhauser (4 months ago)
Legend of Dragoons. With the addition of additions (see what I did there) this hidden gem was a mind blower. Unfortunately released right before the ps2 came out. Everyone wanted the next gen. But for those of us that couldn't afford it immediately, yeah, we found our masterpiece that became the first 4 disc game to ever grace our paths.

Cult classic video games? Why classic tho? Its not like video games based on cults have a huge base.. *update* I am an idiot. I thought these games were going to be based on cults but turns out "cult classics" has an entirely different meaning lol.

Shenmue, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth are cult classics. Mirrors Edge is not a cult classic in any way shape or form.
anthony savage (5 months ago)
God hand and shadows of the damned should be on this list

Why the hell is “Spec Ops: The Line” number 10?
Waffersforever (5 months ago)
Parasite Eve for me. Got two games back on PSone, and then a PSP release called The Third Birthday. The first game was a hybrid between an rpg and some survival horror, the second played more akin to a Resident Evil game to retain its survival horror feel but with 'magic', and The Third Birthday was a third person shooter - rpg. TTB gets a lot of hate, and while I'm disappointed it's the last one they released, I don't exactly hate it either, I enjoyed playing it a lot.

Other than Stalker, most of these games look like crap.

Fatal Frame was so underrated, yet is my all-time favorite game series <3 I really hope they make a Remaster for the PS4.
John Jacobs (7 months ago)
Conker, Alice and Beyond good and evil really would be the only ones on this list that are cult classics. Okami shouldn't even be on this list, especially since all the talking points were it's underrated Bad list Mojo

The Longest Journey, Shadow Hearts/Koudelka, Ar Tonelico 1&2, Parasite Eve, and until recently I'd have said NieR but I'm hoping Automata will raise awareness about the original and get it the attention it deserves.
Vinnie (7 months ago)
Cry Of Fear is definitely an amazing game. Afraid Of Monsters, too. It kinda sucks that they aren't as well known as other horror games.
enkilm (7 months ago)
These people forgot Alice the sequel video game ,its also a great game to buy the disks to install the former are expensive on eBay but they haven’t shown you the best parts of the game.
AntiNubDevice (7 months ago)
Hyped to see Orta in the honorables, at least. I played the crap outta that game.
Egor Ananyev (7 months ago)
I call BS. Anachronox belongs in this list, at #1.
Christopher Drum (7 months ago)
The Grim Fandango soundtrack, an all original score, deserves special recognition. Also, let's add a few more to the list: Parasite Eve, Deadly Premonition, Nox, Shadow Hearts, Rez, Ikaruga, Yume Nikki.
