These are the games that had their price dropped unfairly quickly, those games that should have done better but never got what they deserved.
These are the games that seemed to get less love, either in ‘game of the year’ lists I read on other sites or from general sales figures. This is my small attempt to redress the balance.
This is a list of the biggies. Games with the advertising muscle to make an impact, with or without the medias’ approval. Don’t hold that against them though, seek them out if they passed you by.
My intentions were to stop these, but I have spent so much time writing for other sites that sometimes I just like to put them up to prove I am alive.
The last few months of games really took it out of me, with games that demanded my attention long into the night thanks to both review deadlines and unhealthy addictions.
My first appointment was with Warner Bros. With three appointments (plus one for Lollipop Chainsaw that I begged for) I spent a good chunk of time in this smallish, but well ventilated booth (did I mention that in the business section you could feel the air-con?) chatting to developers and press. It was casual, friendly, and far less harassed than I had ever felt at TGS as I relaxed in a chair with my cola.
