    Why no alien games?

    I think devs are missing a huge boat here. I would like to play a game where I and a well armed group of fellow soldiers fight off an alien invasion or other post apocalyptic scenario. I feel there just haven't been many games in this genre. There could even be tons of DLC and infinite sequels. Just a thought. A first person realistic war shooter or MMORPG would also be fun for a change.

    Mass Effect and Resistance would like to say hello.

    My thoughts exactly, even if the Chimera in the Resistance games aren't actually aliens.

    Go outside after dark, Look to the north and see if you can find the constellation Sarcasm.

    What about X-COM coming out -hopefully- soon? Now that's gonna be amazing. I think it's only for Pc (the strategy one, not the FPS), though.

    Are you sure you didn't acidently take your time machine from the 1980's when E.T. launched on Atari. Haven't you ever heard of Resistance, Killzone(even though they aren't technically aliens, same idea), Mass Effect, etc. There are tons of games that have yet to sink your teeth into.

    Wish they made another game like this where you play as the enemy because this game for PS2 was definitely one of my favourites for PS2 and there aren't enough games like this.

    They should make another Destroy All Humans.
    That game was pretty fun.

    And I think most games today focused on Zombies... haven't seen many actual Alien creature games (where they invade), but reading some of the posts, there's probably one coming up.


    At least your thread brought awareness
    It's just a flesh wound.

    I say we petition for Sony to add this to the PS2 classic section of the PS Store.

    I agree.

    Just not the sequel. It sucked.
