    Ok, so there's lots of games that grab the headlines when they're released and people buy them in their millions (well maybe not millions).

    But there's quite a few quality games out there that don't get highlighted. And being old, you can snap them up pretty cheaply.

    One that I loved playing recently was "The Saboteur", great storyline and gameplay, and will keep you going for literally hours. The developers (Pandemic) got broken up after this game as they way overspent in putting content into it.

    The Saboteur - Xbox 360 - IGN

    Another one I enjoyed (although more well known) was Red Dead Redemption.

    What are your hidden treasures?

    I remember that game, I saw some footage of it look good and lots of people online said it was good.

    It a shame such games just get forgotten.

    My favorite Video Game Franchise to tell you all is MEDAL OF HONOR. I really enjoy them especially the last two installments; MOH 2010 & MOH Warfighter although Warfighter didn't really do well at sales cuz people say it sucks. But I love these games as compared to Battlefield and Call of Duty franchises because MOH is the most AUTHENTIC game franchise ever made....all based on Tier 1 operators and inspired by real life experiences.

    Yes, I completely agree about the MOH franchise. I know one of the directors in EA and they spent a lot of effort into getting the tactics and gun behaviour just right. I also know someone who's "worked" with the SEAL teams, and has commented on the realism.

    CoD has got all of the kids online because of the variety of maps/games/lobbies, I guess.

    I also preferred the story line of the MOH campaigns. Much more emotional involving than in CoD.

    Another good one I ran across was Sniper : Elite. A pretty straightforward FPS/Sneak-em-up, with the added bonus of some fabulous CSI-inspired death sequences (you can watch your bullets tear through someone's eyeball and skull in glorious slow motion.

    Gameplay isn't that deep, but it's a really satisfying way of bumping your GP count..

    Sniper: Elite looks excellent, I love watching the game on YouTube specially the slow motion parts.

    I also play Warfighter but just cant get into it like I do with BF3. I spawn, dead. Spawn again, dead. I still enjoy it. The only mode I like playing is control sector/sector control.

    I could not get on with Medal of Honour. I was getting sniped from nowhere, frequently. Prefer Battlefield. Defence grid is my choice, and it was free a while back. I bought it yonks ago though, well worth it. Warp looked good, but I am waiting for it to drop to 400 points. Nearly bought Lost Planet 2 recently as it is on offer on Xbox for 4.49.

    Does that mean MOH has the most difficult multiplayer?

    Oh, another game I liked was Spec Ops : The Line

    A pretty standard COD campaign type game, but the most compelling story line that takes you to some pretty dark places. Emotionally challenging.

    Mirror's Edge

    Most innovative game I have played in a while. I loved the first person free-running. New one coming for next gen consoles.



    Also, a game that has been described as Mirror's Edge meets Dead Island called Dying Light is coming.

    Beat Hazard from the indie section of the Arcade is great. Its only problem is that it's limited by the 360's poor album tagging and such, and it doesn't read from an MP3 player. The game is basically Asteroids, but with an Audiosurf flavor. The game's weapons and the overall intensity of the game (which, again, plays just like Asteroids/Geometry Wars) change with the intensity of the music, and it's really cool.

    Sleeper games are usually indie games that don't have big budget for marketing so they often go unnoticed. There were some that got some attention later but there are still many I never even heard of and are probably quite good. ID@Xbox has a good library. If you like space, check out Starpoint Gemini 2 on Xbox, I have many hours in it on PC and XB1 version is upgraded and has new and better UI. With base game you also get Origins DLC for free (took me 50+ hours to beat it) which is a full first game ported to new engine.
