Lost Odyssey by a country mile! As far as I'm concerned it's Final Fantasy 11, but unfortunately that's not its official name so it still counts.

Why is it always specifically a “country”-mile? Seems unnecessary info, besides, a nautical mile is more.

It's an idiom. A regular (or nautical) mile has a specific distance. A country mile doesn't, it just means "a very long way".

I'd assume it originated back when the size of miles was relative to the area, rather than a set length everywhere.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

This has a sequel called Last Window: The Secret of Cape West

Never released in my region so it's effectively a stand-alone for me.

Oh right. Your logic makes no sense to me, but it is what it is.

I actually didn’t know about it originally being a relative length. Learn something new every day.

Vanquish

Awesome lightning-paced arcadey action with one of the coolest implementations of bullet time in a game to date.

Shadow of the Colossus

Some of the most epic boss fights in gaming history, supplemented by a powerful atmosphere and an amazing sountrack.

Puppeteer

A unique and charming platformer with tons of variety and imaginative design.

 I still hate how they sabotaged this game by releasing it right before the PS4 and not giving it a current gen port :(

Yeah it probably should've been cross-gen. It already looked great on PS3, just pop it in 1080p/60fps on PS4 and it would've been golden. As things were, it was kinda sent out to die.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
