The 20 cult video games you need to play before you die

1 of 21

Hello gamers. If you have ever wondered what cult games should be on your must-play list, GameSkinny has got you covered. We have selected some of the best games to play before you die from PC to console.

Cult games are games that were not widely successful, but maintained a strong and dedicated fan following. Some of the games on this list weren't always hits at launch and some gained 'AAA' status afterwards. Others can be successful, critically acclaimed, but overshadowed by others in the same series or released around the same time. Unconventional elements are a common appeal that will also categorize a game as "cult."

It just goes to show you how much of an impact we as gamers make in this industry. Here's our Top 20!

    A good list of games, however I wouldn't say Portal, Limbo or Amnesia are cult. Cult is generally something which wasn't loved at the time, but had some die hard fans. After some time all people love it (well a lot of people). Think Labyrinth or The Crow.
