@AdamNovice Thanks!

I've played...
Alice: Madness Returns
Aliens: Colonial Marines
Alien: Isolation
The Amazing Spider-Man
The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Alien: Isolation is the standout for me too. The Amazing Spider-Man I'd also push through, alongside Alice: Madness Returns- they don't make games like that anymore. It was great to see a fantasy world get so twisted. The game also had some of the more interesting weapon designs that I could remember from the PS3 era.

@AdamNovice Yeah that's cool.

For the list, I'd bump up AvP - it really is a very worthwhile game.
TASM2 is incrementally better than the first TASM.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 suffered from pretty severe performance issues on PS3 iirc.
It was one of the first examples of a cross-gen game being significantly worse on the previous console.

As for the games under N/A I'm going to research everyone of them and try to find a general consensous then come back here with a brief summary for you guys to have a look then judge for yourselves, sound good?

To be fair, if you haven't heard of it, it's safe to put it into UNIMPORTANT. By looking at the names alone you can tell which games are probably shovelware

@AdamNovice Ace Combat: Assault Horizon was good. A lot of 'hardcore' AC fans didn't like the close range assault (dogfight) gameplay though.

It was satisfying to play, and dogfights had a very visceral nature to them as opposed to the circling dance of most other entries.

Don't think it warrants 'IMPORTANT' - but it was a good game.

I'm pretty confident that the Air Conflicts game can be labelled 'UNIMPORTANT'.

Quantum of Solace was decent, 007 Legends had tons of promise, but was ultimately terrible.

@KALofKRYPTON @Kidfried @Gremio108 @Fight_Sora_Fight @Octane Alright here's the game summaries for the N/A titles.
007 Legends Eurocom: Simplistic gameplay, poor story, too CoD like and boring, recommend POINTLESS
007: Quantum of Solace Treyarch: Same as Legends but slightly more polished, recommend UNIMPORTANT
Absolute Supercars Eutechnyx Couldn't find reviews apart from some metacritic users, at best decent recommend EXISTING
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Namco Decent, slightly repetitive with good voice acting, recommend EXISTING
Adidas miCoach Lightning Fish Looks like a football fitness game from that made get fit with Mel B, recommend POINTLESS
Adam's Venture Chronicles Vertigo Games An episodic Uncharted like game, seems average, recommend UNIMPORTANT
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn Ubisoft Montpellier Based on the movie, seems like a brainless kids game, recommend UNIMPORTANT
Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don't Know! WayForward Technologies Overall very negative, poor graphics, repetitive, recommend POINTLESS
Adventure Time: Finn & Jake Investigations Vicious Cycle Software A bit basic but worth it for fans of the show, recommend Existing
Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom WayForward Technologies A small scale Zelda like that passable, recommend Existing
AFL Live Big Ant Studios Aussie rules football game, only worth it for fans of the sport, recommend Existing
AFL Live 2 Wicked Witch Software Pretty much likewise with above (hope we don't get the FIFAs) recommend Existing
After Hours Athletes XDev Bowling, Darts and Pool on PS Move, decent for friday night with mates, recommend Existing
Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers Games Farm Graphics were praised if gameplay a touch repetitive, recommend Existing
Air Conflicts: Secret Wars Games Farm Fairly decent but presentation lets it down, recommend EXISTING
Air Conflicts: Vietnam Games Farm Seen as a big step back for the franchise, recommend POINTLESS
Alarm für Cobra 11: Das Syndikat Synetic Racing game based on a German buddy cop drama, only reviews were on PC, seemed decent, recommend UNIMPORTANT
Alarm für Cobra 11: Undercover Synetic Didn't even release in U.S.A. more of the same it looks like, recommed UNIMPORTANT
All-Pro Football 2K8 Visual Concepts 2K's take on U.S. football, pretty good but lacks features, recommend EXISTING.
Phew that took awhile, ok guys let us know what you think.

@AdamNovice Seems fine apart from Quantum of Solace. It's leagues away from 007 Legends in presentation and gameplay. Still just an alright game though.

@AdamNovice Suggestions:
Absolute Supercars - UNIMPORTANT (looks pretty bad, and all racing games considered, no)
All-Pro Football 2K8 - UNIMPORTANT (especially today, and even on the PS3 there are better alternatives)


Any reason why 2010 FIFA World Cup is recommended over 2014 FIFA World Cup?

Alpha Protocol also got a ton of mixed reviews. Any reason why it's IMPORTANT?

I agree that when it comes to the ones we haven't heard of, we can put them into 'unimportant', unless one of them turns out to be a minor classic that we've somehow missed. That's unlikely though

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Octane WC 2010 was probably the last good Fifa without micros and suchlike. The music was great and the colour palette was fantastic. Great game imo.

@Octane Well I played WC 2010 and that came at a time where Fifa actually became really good where it was worth buying. By 2014 it felt like things had changed in the market where it would have been better served as an update or DLC for that year's Fifa.
As for Alpha Protocol, that will get changed as I put my own personal opinion above its obvious technical issues which isn't going by the criteria that @themcnoisy set.

If you are happy with this then your next comment MUST include "LOCK" if you change your mind after, it won't be counted.
