Pac-Man World 3

By now, you most likely have seen at least one franchise thought to be dead spring to life in full 3D on Xbox, GameCube, or PS2 to satisfy nostalgic fans. (Rygar for instance) But Pac-Man, who has been an unmistakable image of gaming entertainment for over a generation, has always struggled to come back for a little more time in the spotlight.

Perfect Dark Zero

With the current line-up of games for the Xbox, GameCube, and PlayStation 2, its sometimes difficult to recall the greatness of games that have seen the best of their days, especially when “the best of their days” means about 5 years ago.

Kameo: Elements of Power (Pre-E3 2005)

Rare is a developer I have always been fond of. Throughout the years, they have made some of the best Nintendo games going all the way back to Battletoads on the NES. I was shocked when Microsoft bought out Rare and Nintendo let them depart so quickly. Sure the developer could be a little slow releasing titles but they were always good, right?

Ninety Nine Nights (Pre-E3 2005)

If there is something the Xbox 360 needs, it is some big titles in the US market and elsewhere around the globe. At the recent MTV Xbox 360 event, Microsoft showed off the new Xbox 360 but the only game that was really shown in playable form was Perfect Dark Zero. While this title may end up being great, it has a long ways to go at this point.

Phantasy Star Universe (Pre-E3 2005)

Ah yes, who doesn’t remember Phantasy Star Online? I know I do; some of my fondest gaming memories are derived from the days I’d stop at the gas station on the way home from class, pick up chips and a two liter of Mountain Dew and spend the entire night hacking down enemies with my loyal comrades in PSO.
