10 Great Games of this Generation You Might Not Have Played
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey (DS)
A portable and mature take on the monster collecting genre that put Atlus on the map so many years ago with the original Shin Megami Tensei, Strange Journey is a sequel to the venerable series that has players collecting hundreds of monsters in an effort to stay alive. The creatively designed demons feature animated sprites that would make Pokémon Black and White run away scared. On top of that, Strange Journey is a console-sized game in the palm of your hands, boasting more content and replayability than the average home console experience.
Red Faction: Guerilla (PS3, XBOX 360, PC)
Not your average sandbox shooter, Red Faction: Guerilla’s dusty Mars locales can be destroyed from the ground up, using a variety of destructive possibilities like a powerful hammer, fast-moving cars, and mushroom cloud-producing bombs. Crashing a forklift through a wall, crushing your enemies on the other side never gets old.
Neuroshima Hex (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch)
A hex-based board game involving warring factions set in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by robots and mutants, Neuroshima Hex is a deep strategy experience that can suck hours upon hours of your life away.
Elite Beat Agents (DS)
A stylus-tapping dance game with that kooky humor the Japanese are so well known for, Elite Beat Agents is a highly addictive and totally funky experience that might seem embarrassing to play at first but quickly becomes a way of life. Just dig it and enjoy the music.
Crimson Gem Saga (PSP, iPhone, iPod Touch)
An excellent homage to the classic role-playing games of the 16-bit era, Crimson Gem Saga’s traditional turn-based battles, hand-drawn 2D sprites and backgrounds, memorable characters, and challenging difficulty make it a familiar, but satisfying adventure worth taking.
Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (DS)
A visual novel with a deep narrative and memorable characters that will keep you playing into the night, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is a psychological journey through a creative, hand-drawn world unlike any other. More of a novel than a game, the adventure-style gameplay is still captivating while reinforcing the storyline and setting.
