With reading one of Gaminformer.com's staff pieces of Games you didn't know you wanted until you had it, mixed with the recent end of the world mumbo jumbo, it got me thinking about games, or game series I could have potentially missed out on enjoying. So here's my list of top 5 games/series I wish I would have played, had the world ended on 12/21/2012:
1 - The Zelda Series - I know, I know. My biggest offense by far. I just was never really a Nintendo guy past the SNES, and at my young age it never really dawned on me how major of a title these were. Seeing it now, and how people rave about the games, I really regret not getting into it. I just never could talk myself into buying a Wii, Gamecube, or N64 (even though I ended up with this one late in its lifetime), and justify it with one or two purchases. Now with the Wii U, I'm even less interested. In what feels to me like a half-assed attempt at a head start on Next-Gen, I can't scrounge up the change to buy it. Maybe I'll borrow someones Wii, who I'm sure isn't using it, and download a good chunk of them from their store. Who knows, maybe one day I'll fill the void of Zelda in my gaming life.
