Phantom Crash (Fun little mech game, shoot guy, upgrade your mech, and it's fun all round, it runs smoothly too)

Jet Set Radio Future (Graffitti, roller skates, great ost, pretty cool for a cel-shaded game)

The Warriors (First game that came from a movie that was good, seriously the controls are good, the story adds on from the movie, the beat-em up style works well, and it's fun all round)

and Metal arms; glitch in the systems. most underrated original xbox game created.

So what would you guys and madams recommend? I've played all the big name Wii games. But are there any hidden gems that I could've missed out on?
(I'll tell you if I've played it)

Not sure if these are hidden.

Wario Land: Shake Dimension
Mad World
Boom Blocks (Most fun with friends)
Resident Evil (the railshooter one, if you enjoy those)

I've got rid of my Wii now, but I remember being pleasantly surprised by Deadly Creatures. If you haven't tried it, you should. I remember it being a lot of fun playing something so novel.

RE: Gaming recommendations
I'd like to recommend DarkSector because I know no one else will.

It's a great third-person shooter from D3. It's also affordable (Like $3). It came out a long long time ago. Anyway, it's really good, and long, and the story is pretty good. And if you're into third-person shooters, definitely check it out. Here's a gameplay video:



(This is from very early on in the game)

It also has a multiplayer that I believe still has its servers up. Now, there's probably only 3 people in the world who actually play it, but it's something to note.

RE: Gaming recommendations
Singularity
I'd like to recommend Singularity. It's a sci-fi shooter with a mediocre storyline. But it actually has some really good gameplay, and it's a solid game. It's nothing to write home about. It's not a very new experience, but it is a fun game.
GameSpot Review:



OuTLand
I'd also like to recommend a downloadable game, called OuTLand. Which some of you might have just recently gotten for free through Plsystation Plus (like I did).

It's a side-scrolling platformer with a very nice look, and really good, and polished gameplay. It's also relatively long, and ther's a good amount of backtracking and collectibles. It also has some really great boss fights. Overall, I'd definitely say it's worth checking out.

RE: Gaming recommendations
Playing games is very important to the spending some free time and its also very use to change the day. You have to select best games for playing and also try to play online games. I always prefer some best games and make some good playlist of games.

RE: Gaming recommendations
So... I have this whole week off and as always, whenever I have a longer-than-usual free time, all of the gaming possibilities just disappear until the free time ends.
I've already been searching but couldn't find anything that suited my needs. I only have my laptop, which is pretty old, but still manages to run some not-so-old games like Dragon Age (Origins and II), Oblivion and Bastion.
I was specifically looking for an Adventure and/or RPG (MMO's included, as long as they don't require a shitload of time to get into) game that isn't very old. Something along the lines of the games I mentioned. Thanks in advance :3~

RE: Gaming recommendations
Here's a bunch of recomendations:

Wii: No More Heroes (duh), Punch Out, Mario Super Sluggers (It's Wii Baseball, but the single player dialogue is surprisingly well written. Nothing deep, but it's good fun.) Monster Hunter Tri

PC: Reciever and Terraria have eaten up far more of my time then their price tags would've suggested. I also recall the Penny Arcade titles being good solid JRPG types.

RE: Gaming recommendations
Monster Hunter Tri is the best game evar. Well, one of the best Wii games anyways, other than that I'd recommend the following:

Wii:
Tales of Symphonia, gamecube action RPG, 4 player simultaneous co op, great combat, great dialog, and reaaaaaallllllyyyy long. Only notable downside is the stupid cutscenes with the really poorly rendered faces... search for it on youtube and you'll know what I mean.

PC:
Team Fortress 2 is fucking 'mazing, and now it's free, so go download it on Origin. HAH, NO.
Other than that, anything by Valve is great, Minecraft is good fun, Diablo 2 is cheap and great (I found a complete set with all bonus content and modding tools at best buy for $15 Tongue), Mari0 is fun, Sanctum is great and really underrated, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is better than Skyrim, and made in 2000. Seriously, check dat shet out, it's only like $4.32 on Steam

RE: Gaming recommendations
Shadows of the Damned (PS3/Xbox 360) - Such an under appreciated game. Not only do I think it's an underrated game, I think it's a great game.

Lollipop Chainsaw (PS3/360) - Yes, another Suda51 game. This game was pure fun. It wasn't long, but it has replay value. Also, it has some of the best video game dialogue I've ever heard.

MadWorld (Wii) -I see some has mentioned it already, but I loved this game and it's worth a second mention.

RE: Gaming recommendations
If anyone likes survival type games, go look for Tokyo Jungle. I believe it's $9.99/£7.99 on PSN, and 800 Microsoft Points. It's surprisingly fun. Though, it is a bit unsettling at first seeing a Pomeranian claw out a Manx's eyes for a dead chicken, but that feeling quickly disappears.
