Dead Space: Extraction
Time required for a basic playthrough: 5 hrs
So, back in 2009 EA quietly released Dead Space: Extraction, a rail shooter for the Wii, and it’s actually kind of amazing. No, really! This game is probably the deepest, most gripping rail shooter ever, and deserves to sit alongside the core Dead Space titles. Oh, and there’s also a spiffy HD edition for the PS3, so you don’t need to still have your Wii plugged in to play it.
Time required for a basic playthrough: 7 – 10 hrs
Pikmin 3 has a ton of extra modes and supplementary material, but the main quest can be breezed through fairly quickly. Trust me, even if you don’t like strategy games, hell, even if you didn’t like past Pikmin titles (I didn’t) this game will charm your butt off.
