From the befuddled mind of Tim Schafer the many skilled staff of Double Fine came a unique third-person action-adventure game named Brutal Legend, a love letter to heavy metal music. Although it got good reviews and was adored by most people that played it, Brutal Legend sadly didn’t sell much and thus passed into relative obscurity, like just another local band that has the skill yet never quite manages to move up from playing at the corner pub. If a pounding beat the tortured scream of guitar gets your blood boiling, then Brutal Legend is one game you need to play
Remasters, remakes and even just re-releases of older games have proven to be a great source of money, especially over the last few years. Resident Evil 2 sold loads and won various Game of the Year Awards, Crash Team Racing came screeching back with a great remake, Spyro the Dragon got all three original games remastered and even MediEvil somehow managed to clamber out of its grave. Basically it looks like just about any old game has a chance of a second lease on life.
