Forums - Gaming Discussion - The 10th Annual Greatest Games Event - Discussion Thread

All but #17 have been gussed, so I'll add the final games before my top 10. I'm considering doing this "why this game is so amazing" thing for my top 10, but I think I'm still too lazy for that.

#17
Hint 1: World with altered physics.
Hint 2: Same franchise as #19 and #20.
Hint 3: This is also a 'sequel', but it's a lot more similar to the previous games than game #19 is to #20.
Hint 4: Games #20 and #19 are Pokémon Black & White and Pokémon Black & White 2.

#13
Hint 1: This game is pretty much just Dark Souls.

#12
Hint 1: 11th game in the franchise, and the first one that isn't numbered.

#11
Hint 1: This game came with a step counter.

Hey, come on, I ain't got all year here!

#16 - Released 17 years ago, it is still the last game in the series' timeline, despite several other releases in that time.
Hint 2 - It is still the latest sidescrolling release, not including remakes.
Hint 3 - It was released one day after a 3D entry in the same series.

Metroid Fusion.

Yeah.

#16
Hint 1: So a bunch of mushrooms took over the world. Basically en escort mission made into a full game. 
Hint 2: Sequel comes out early next year
Hint 3: Opening scene has your character losing a loved one. 

#12
Hint 1: Third (3rd) entry of a franchise. So you are basically a mercenary that hunts monsters.

A game which I don't often see featured as a classic great game, although it really is. This Wizardry spinoff is one the greatest RPGs of all time. It's battle system is classic but works well. The scenario and story are interesting and dark, the design of enemies is inventive and it has nicely implemented characters. This whole package is pretty great.

Tale of the Forsaken Land is a dungeon crawler. You create your character quite freely and then go hire more people to form a party to start exploring the labyrinth. The story background is the kingdom of Duhan, which is pretty destroyed as an event called the Flash struck the land. Now a dangerous labyrinth exists within the ruins with lots of monsters. You set off with your party to explore the labyrinth and discover the reasons for the recent events.

Although there can be humorous moments, the overall tone of the game is pretty dark. This is expressed by colors, music, the quests you get from the people in the Inn and how the story unfolds.

The fighting system is quite classic, but has some twists with the allied actions. In the labyrinth you have additional things to do, like open new paths or unlock trapped treasure chests.

This game is a pretty gem, clearly underrated.
