Game Informer Show 59: Cult Classics

by Matt Helgeson on Mar 03, 2011 at 10:58 AM

We're taking a break from discussing the big, triple-A games of the year to show some love to the amazing, sometimes strange games that never quite broke through to the mainstream. In this episode of the Game Informer Show, host Matt Helgeson is joined by Jeff Cork, Tim Turi, Joe Juba, and Andy Reiner as we talk about some of our favorite cult classic titles from the past (and a few more recent gems). While discussing such overlooked games as Deadly Premonition, Tecmo's Deception, Zone of the Enders, Earth Defense Force 2017, and Zombies Ate My Neighbors, we ponder what makes a game a "cult classic" and if the industry still has a place for these kind of offbeat products.
