Massively Flopped Video Games That Are Now Cult Classics

Games Failed so hard that they actually became Cult Classics? Let’s take a look at games that was commercially failed in the beginning but became cult classic afterward.



Platinum didn’t create a captivating universe with Vanquish, but it also serves as a showcase of some of their best pure action work. If you haven’t had a chance to give it a shot yet, you might as well with the definitive version on PC. – Destructoid
Compared to Bayonetta, Vanquish has some catching up to do. The story and characters are forgettable, the environments quickly get stale, and there’s no progression in weapons and powers. At the same time, the gameplay remains brilliant, with solid shooting that melds well with some very fast action; it’s enough to overcome any visible flaws. With the improvements in frame rate, Vanquish is a good action shooter for anyone with even a mild interest in the genre.  – Worth Playing
Its lack of longevity and ancillary options are an issue, but this still plays like a classic and is one of the best shooters of its generation. – Metro GameCentral

Killer 7

Ultimately, Killer7 is both an interesting and creative game. The controversial control method needs some getting used to and may turn off certain gamers, but if you give it a chance, you’ll find yourself intrigued with the game and its amazing story. – Gamer’s Hell
An experience first and a game second. Players going into it with that in mind should enjoy this immensely, those looking for a deep gameplay experience may want to try before they buy. – PALGN
No game can claim to be as visually and aurally stunning as Killer7. There has been no video game as heavily and expressively stylised before, with the beautiful, cel-shaded visuals forming an integral part of the game, rather than a back of the box bullet point. – Jolt Online Gaming UK



This HD remake brings all the beauty and fun of the original to several new platforms, and while there are a few issues (such as the camera and the annoying voices), the strength of the overall package makes it easier to ignore them in favor of all the things the game does right. Whether you’re a fan of the original PS2 version or someone who has never played the game before, Ōkami HD is absolutely worth adding to your library. – RPG Fan
On one hand Okami HD is still a brilliant game that any gamer must beat, but on the other hand it hasn’t much evolved from the PS3 version that came out 5 years ago. Like with many remasters, go for it if you haven’t played it, skip it if you already have. – JeuxActu
Okami that we loved and held dear, presented in up to 4K. No, that’s pretty much it. Played it before – play it again. Never played it before – play it now, then play it again. – PLAY! Zine

Demon’s Soul

Even though it does not introduce any innovations compared to its original counterpart, the European edition of Demon’s Souls confirms itself as one of the best exclusives currently available on PS3. Its hard but rewarding gameplay will in fact engage any fan of the genre, assuring a fun and long lasting experience. – Eurogamer Italy
Demon’s Souls may make you throw controllers. It could possibly make you hate everything you’ve ever loved. It will probably make you yell curse words very, very loudly. It’s also some of the best fun to be had on the PS3. – Thunderbolt
All-in-all, Demon’s Souls is a game every PS3 RPG fan should buy just to say that they own it, just to say that they’ve played it. It’s up to you as the gamer to figure out if an incredibly difficult, incredibly unique game is the game for you. – RPG Fan

Beyond Good And Evil


If you value story and atmosphere in your games, then you will enjoy the way Beyond Good & Evil transports you into its fantastic world. – Gamers’ Temple
With great story, action, and adventure, presented with beautiful graphics and audio and an intuitive control scheme, this carefully crafted science fiction title fosters genuine caring about what goes on, making it an absolute pleasure to play. – Adrenaline Vault
Packed with atmosphere, accessible gameplay and sweet visuals, Beyond Good & Evil has most definitely reached beyond our expectations. Don’t miss it. – Yahoo!

Jade Empire


With a great story, tons of missions, beautifully rich settings, satisfying fighting and brilliant characterisation, all swaddled in over 20 hours of play, Jade Empire has transcended its Xbox roots to reincarnate itself as a high-kicking, epic RPG for PC. The chi is strong with this one. – PC Zone UK
It is arguable that no game that is directly comparable to Jade Empire in the past two years has been better than it, and that in all probability none will be until “Mass Effect” is released later this year. – Boomtown
The game looks dated on the PC, but it offers people a different kind of adventure, one not centered on first person shooting or real time strategy. – GameDaily
