Half the fun of super-long video game lists is scrolling through to see if your favourite/most-hated games are on there. The other half of the fun is looking for Tim Schafer games.
It's not that Schafer's made so many games that he has to be on every list (like the Final Fantasy games). It's just that his games are so diverse and bizarre that they usually stand out enough to make somebody's list of "Gaming's Greatest/Worst [Insert Noun Here] ". This week, he makes GamesRadar's list of "18 awesome games that died at retail" not once, but twice!
Psychonauts to me is the obligatory Schafer game everyone includes on their list. But thankfully Grim Fandango made the cut this time. Of all Schafer's works, it's still my favourite so far.
It'll be interesting to see whether or not Brütal Legend qualifies as a great game that dies at retail. Currently, it's got a Metacritic score of 84, but the jury's still out on how well it's selling...
