Just because that game's obscure doesn't make it good. It had some really cool ideas, but the overall game is boring as fuck.

kinda strange to think

We used to pan developers for releasing games with weird new ideas with spotty implementation...

Geist and pic related weren't exactly great games by any means, but they had unique mechanics.

Now no developer can get their product to the shelves without destroying their initial vision.

I'd gladly blow a whole paycheck on games like these before buying a PS4 or Xbone so I can play FPS #8238729 or Assassin's Creed 82394234982

Remember Me had a weird new unique mechanic, but it wasn't exactly a great game either, and everyone disliked it.

So 6th gen is old now hun?

thats what i meant. even if both games were not perfect, they had mechanics that made them unique. today its just military-shooter-bullshit or some overhyped destiny-crap.

pic related its another older shooter that still got better gameplay is way more innovative that todays crap

XIII was a mediocre NOLF clone with a bad cliffhanger ending. Don't give it credit it clearly doesn't deserve.

The gunplay saved FEAR from mediocrity.

Look at FEAR 2 and 3. They lost the great gunplay from the first game and they were awful because of it.

>>264892834
The gunplay, graphics and tense atmosphere through excellent use of lighting. Remind any FEAR player of the ladder scene and they'll understand that it wasn't just the gunplay that made them play FEAR.

bump for geist.

Yeah, F.E.A.R. had some of that good old 2005 TECHNOLOGY, a lot of which isn't seen all that often anymore.

That game was so glitchy it would make Bethesda blush.

Low print run
Pretty much it was at Universal studios and some retailers
It still goes for 50 and will only climb as the kids that grew up with Xbox/PS2 start craving the "good old days"
>>
>>264901013
Played it many times on XB and I never had any problems. I even heard that the frame rate issues and nearly all other issues were fixed in the PC release too.
