Gamespy has an article today about the 25 most under rated games of all time. They put OFP at 21 on the list of the most under rated games of all time.
I totally agree with them. the game was not properly promoted in the US, and as such it is the realm of die hard fans like us, rather than having wider acceptance among gamers. I know that i get a blank stare still when I talk about Flashpoint with people. And I have turned at least 4-5 people onto the game here just by telling them how cool it is and suggesting the GOTY pack.
Can we hope that OFP2 will get the promotion and hype that OFP1 deserved and didnt get?
