We haven’t heard much about these games during the PS4 / Xbox One generation, and yet they have tremendous qualities to offer.
Here. Last year, the new generation of consoles finally arrived. And who says new generation of consoles, necessarily says end of the previous one. If new games should continue to make their arrival on the “old” consoles of Sony and Microsoft, the fact remains that the focus should be given to new generations in the future. So it’s time to do a little special review: we have already been able to address the most significant games of the generation, so here we will come back to these games that few players have heard of, but which are damn worth their weight in peanuts. Sadly underrated, it’s time to give them some fame!
Ruin is one of the most difficult games of recent years, to rank alongside the famous Souls-Like, so frustration can sometimes be. But here it is: who says frustration, also says deliverance when we manage to overcome the many obstacles that seemed insurmountable to us. We haven’t heard much about Ruiner, but it is without a doubt one of the best cyberpunk experiences of recent years.
Journey To The Savage Planet
It’s a bit difficult to understand why the release of Journey To The Savage Planet did not receive a more cheerful reception from the players: this sandbox game offers dozens and dozens of hours of content, halfway between exploration, construction and comedy. We are treated to a wacky and wacky story: Borderlands fans should appreciate! A little nugget to discover if you haven’t already.
The Banner Saga
The Banner Saga trilogy is one of the finest of the past decade. With a turn-based strategy system, important choices to be made during the storytelling (which can have a big impact on the gameplay in battle) and an extremely original design, the three games of Stoic are all classic. But, apart from a small niche of enlightened players, The Banner Saga is still a little too confidential for our tastes.
We don’t talk too much about Frostpunk, although it is without a doubt one of the best management / strategy games released in 10 years. Frostpunk is a heartbreaking experience, since the player must juggle difficult choices for the survival of his base, absolutely dire weather conditions, all in a hyper disturbing post-apocalyptic world.. A nugget that is not appreciated enough.
It’s the very definition of an underrated game. Its only flaw was to come out at the same time as two big games: a certain Battlefield 1, as well as Call of Duty Infinite Warfare. A release that has had the gift of completely eclipsing the game of Respawn, while the latter is truly excellent, and rightly considered one of the best games of the generation by many!
