From a cursory glance, a lost classic might appear to be straightforward genre fare. But beneath the surface, these games tend to twist what we expect from a shooter, a role-playing game or an action-adventure title. On this list alone, there's a Tony Hawk-inspired gore fest, a literary post-apocalyptic puzzle-platformer and a spaghetti western melodrama. Time has passed since the release of these lost classics. Their prices have dropped by the month. Now you can grab most of these oddballs for less than an Andrew Jackson. They're perfect for the budget-conscious secret Santa — far better than a forgettable gift card. The lost classics The lost classics Just Cause 2 Just Cause 2 Just Cause 2 is my favorite game of this console generation. The open-world...

The fan-made multiplayer mod for Just Cause 2 has not gone unnoticed by Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios, with studio head Christofer Sundberg stating the mod's presence makes the series' future "even brighter" in a recent interview with Eurogamer. "What the guys have done now with the multiplayer mod is fantastic, and it completely came out of left field," Sundberg said. "So we have them to thank for a lot. It's even too crazy for Just Cause. If we had done it it would have been more planned. Since it's a mod, it's just like DayZ, they can get away with a lot, which we wouldn't be able to unfortunately as a developer." The mod is currently still in beta, but over 10,000 players have already registered for participation in the mod's 600-player multiplayer testing rounds. "We...
