WC3 & WC4 were great games because of the FMV , and where would the C&C/RA series been without the cheesy dialogue of Tanya and co?
Me too. My personal preference for FMV is a nice shooter with FMV backgrounds.

I loved Galleon. You know, that overly hyped game from Toby Gard, creator of Lara Croft, which got very avarge scores everywhere (mostly).

It was an excellent game, and one of the (few) gems on the Xbox - I'm sad to see it fail so horribly that we may never see a sequel to the game.

Under a Killing moon?
Even that.

I have a deep love of 'cheese' (you should see my DVD collection...If its a bad 80's horror flick, I've probably got it), and these games fit the bill.

I should point out I loved UAKM.

And yes, my DVD collection ranges from The Shining to Lilo and Stitch, The Usual Suspects to Street Fighter and Goodfellas to the absurdly underrated "Shriek if you know what I did last Friday the 13th".

So I'm with you on this.

Actually, I loved that game as well, it was better than Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time IMHO (and that was a good game too)

Anything designed and developed by Shigeru Miyamoto.

Yep, thats right, I think he is perhaps the most overated games designer on the planet. I've actually reached the point where I've stopped torturing myself by playing his games in a vain hope to see what gets everyone so excited.

Give me a game by Archer Maclean over Miyamoto's wishy-washy affairs anyday.

I nearly bought it for £3 today. Wish I had picked it up now :?
