Better Late Than Never Video Games

About this original series

One saying always holds true: If you're going to play a game, it's better late than never. Frequently blurring the line between retrospective and review, "Better Late Than Never" videos put the future in context with the past, often highlighting games that the public may have passed by for whatever reason.

    • Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

      When I dove in to Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze to review it, I came in to the game with the wrong frame of mind. I braced myself for a repeat of everything I didn’t like about Donkey Kong Country Returns. Fortunately, the game transcended my expectations with some very smart level design.

    • Sonic Generations (Xbox 360)

      Few franchises in the entertainment industry have seen as many ups and downs as Sonic the Hedgehog. And yet, some how, for some reason, the little blue guy has endured 20 years of astronomical highs and diabolical lows. Sonic Generations attempts to put a bow on the last two decades of Sonic games, and may finally prove that yes, you really can make a Sonic the Hedgehog game work in 3D.

    • Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (Xbox 360)

      As the years have passed, the Mario Kart franchise has slowly shifted its focus from being a wacky racing game to playing more like a party game, akin to Mario Party and its ilk. This has prompted a response from Sega in the form of All-Stars Racing, a game that attempts to blend the "wacky racing" vibe of earlier Mario Karts with gameplay that rewards skilled driving. Does it succeed?

    • Shenmue (Dreamcast)

      Shenmue is a very divisive game for many gamers who have played it. Regardless of what opinion you may have on the game, there’s no denying that Shenmue tried to do a lot of things that most games at the time did not even dare to attempt, some of which games today have still yet to explore. It is for this reason that Shenmue will always be remembered. So, journey back with me to November 29th, 1986, in Yokosuka, Japan…

    • Astal (Sega Saturn)

      Astal could have had a chance at being the next big thing for Sega after Sonic the Hedgehog , but poor timing and some unfortunate game design choices have instead created a forgotten gem.
