Games You (Probably) Should Have Played – J


GYPSHP_J

We can finally say that Next Generation in gaming is in full swing with the release of the final 2 entries in console war in just about a months time. To commemorate this event we’ve decided to take a look back at all of our favorite games, in alphabetical order, across every generation. We’re calling this the Games You (Probably) Should Have Played.

Some of our choices will be mainstream titles, some will be indie games that you’ve probably never heard of. A handful of these selections will be older then you, while others are younger than your car. All that matters is that in some way we feel that these games are worth playing. So come along for the ride, as we move into game that start with “J”. Don’t forget to tell us what your favorites are in the comments below!

Journey (PS3 – 2012)
I honestly haven’t played Journey, but I’m all for indie games getting huge and popular and making people check them out more. So if you haven’t played Journey give it a go, I know I have every intention on playing it at some point, I’ve just got such a backlog of games right now. . .

Journey (PS3 – 2012)
I have played Journey, and if ICO represented the games are art argument from 2001, this is the new face of that campaign. Just as it was in ICO you awaken in a desert with no direction other than the knowledge that in the distance lies a massive mountain. You head toward it and thus begins your Journey. It’s a beautiful game, made even better with drop in drop out multiplayer. At random other players of the game can show up in your version and travel with you. You have no way to communicate besides pressing the Circle button to call out to your new partner with some sounds. The game encourages partnership, and is literally one of the most beautiful 3 hours I have ever spent playing a game. Ever. Play it.

Jade Cocoon (PS1 – 1998)
Jade Cocoon was an interesting game to say the least. It had the Pokemon element of catching monsters but you could also fight as your main character. Unlike Pokemon however you could sell the monsters that you caught or you could fuse 2 of them together to get a completely different one. The monsters were also much less cartoonish than those of Pokemon. It’s an interesting game that I know I didn’t appreciate as much as I probably should have.
