Old Games That Had Potential

We go back to the days when graphics are limited and we rely on good stories and gameplay to make a game enjoyable (well, not all but mostly).

Dogday

Dogday This probably isn’t the best gameplay as it gets ridiculously hard (almost impossible without a walkthrough) but it featured several noteworthy features of the era. You can play an arcade game within the game and come on, who doesn’t like playing as a dog that scoops up soup for money? The dystopian and retro style graphics were also a fresh start.

Dragonriders: Chronicles of Pern This had potential to be a good game. Unfortunately, it doesn’t go any further. What stood out was the amount of interactions and how the character levels up a skill.

Anito: Defend A Land Enraged

Anito: Defend a Land Enraged was definitely a great game although it was unfortunate that there was not much hype about it. The plot and storyline was its strong point and the depth of the main characters are enough to make you want to relate with them.

Who would’ve thought that this:

The Elder Scrolls: Arena

would eventually become this?

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

What would’ve happened if those games that had potential had soldiered on?
