10 Great Games of this Generation You Might Not Have Played
With so many fun games being offered this generation of consoles, sometimes the greatest gems are left unplayed in the rush of overly commercialized titles the likes of Call of Duty and Halo. To help you discover some awesome games you may have never even heard of, GameDynamo has prepared a list of great games you might not have played this generation!
Singularity (PS3, XBOX 360, PC)
Singularity’s blend of Resistance’s alternate history, BioShock’s power-ups, Dark Void’s campy humor, Half-Life 2’s Gravity Gun, F.E.A.R.’s slow motion kills, and Dark Sector’s sickly visuals and grotesque enemies make this first-person shooter a diverse experience where it’s fun to kill enemies in a variety of bloody ways. From shotgunning zombies in the face to throwing incoming missiles back at enemies to solving time-altering puzzles, Singularity has got it all.
Radiant Historia (DS)
An engrossing role-playing game that takes all the best elements of the 32-bit era, Radiant Historia’s timeline-altering story has players making key decisions that change the outcome of the plot and gameplay. The game’s a beast in terms of content and depth, most closely resembling excellent classics like Chrono Trigger and Valkyrie Profile.
Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Wii)
The beautiful, hand-drawn 2D sprites of Muramasa: The Demon Blade are alone worth picking up the game. Add in a classic narrative, epic battles, blistering difficulty, and tight, beat-‘em-up controls with plenty of depth and you’ve got a worthy successor to the near-perfect Odin Sphere.
Metro 2033 (PS3, XBOX 360, PC)
With a heavy focus on story and atmosphere, Metro 2033’s post-apocalyptic setting and survival plot may sound familiar at first, but the captivating and bleak environments, decrepit human population, and haunting narrative and visual insights make Metro 2033 more than just a forgettable, military, run-and-gun shooter.
