    __________________

    With today’s busy schedules it is often hard to find time to play games, let alone spend time finding games worth playing. So it is no wonder that most of us usually play only the games that are well marketed. However big titles and millions spent on advertising don't guarantee a good game (often it is quite the contrary). Reverse logic also states that bad marketing (or its total lack) might cause a great game to be overlooked.

    The purpose of this article is to present some of these less known games to you guys. They were all chosen because they are great games that deserve to be noticed and played. The age of the games played no significant role, but we still tried to limit ourselves to games that came out after 2004.

    Alright I tried Boiling Point and already it's going to the trash. Even after the 2.0 patch I'm walking around the city and getting shot at by invisible civilians.

    "Games you missed..." is a nice article but I can definitely think of some better games that many people might have missed and none of them are this buggy.

    So many ignorant people...

    Spellforce 2 does NOT have starforce if you have a USA copy of the game. I live in the USA, and I bought Spellforce 2 shortly after it came out...no starforce. So, if you are posting that you wont get the game because it supposedly has starforce, check the region of the world you live in before making the decision to not buy this wonderful game.

    and...if you live somewhere other than the United States of Middleish North America, well, the company is willing to give you a code or whatever to deactivate starforce if you have problems with it. Read their forums, and you just might learn a thing or two.
