Some more old school games that came to my mind, from back in the day.
Vectorman, when this game came out I remember playing it for days straight till I beat it. In its day it had new and cool graphics mostly because it
was during the time when companies were trying some different things instead of the whole sprite side scroller graphics that action games were doing
for pretty much since videogames were invented.
It was still the same old type of game ie side scroller but the graphic engine it was using was way cool back then.
I know the op put up the original X-Men, and she is right that game was pretty hard it was not something you could breeze your way through. But the
sequel X-Men 2 the clone wars was equally as hard and fun. It was one game were I spent lots of time playing it and dyeing.
I played that game to death, in fact so much so that I still remember this level in the vid like the back of my hand and I also use to play it mostly
with the nightcrawler character mostly, or magneto and wolverine.
Another game, which was one of the best games ever made, Is Valkyrie Profile, Lenneth for the ps1 and a remastered version that came out on the psp.
The game has one of the most interesting game mechanics and gameplay, and the story line is one of the best I ever played in any game out there
period. They even did a remastered version for the psp, with all new updated opening cg cut-scenes sequences and soundtrack. It still is one of the
few games that I want to replay one of these days. Because it is just that good.
It also had a sequel on the ps2 Valkerie Profile Silmeria, this game to even though it did not sell all that well and people did not seem to like
it. It is still a really good game and it ties in with the first game, its in all a pretty worthy sequel to the first game. In fact I got to look to
see if they have both games on the PSvita download network because I would replay both games again just for the nostalgia kicks.
