Good list but isn't Vanquish (great game!) a little too recent to be considered cult classic? 7 years feels recent anyway...

Only played Conker. Also, Vanquish is "cult?" It seems everyone loves Vanquish around here.

How long does a gave have to be released to be a 'cult classic'?

Anyways...not a bad list. Weird.

I'd add E.V.O.: The Search For Eden.
It's basically a 'eat thing to evolve and go to the next level'.
It's kind of a fun game, with a cool premise that's just grindy enough to not overstay its welcome.

Vanquish is a Cult Classic? Sorry, what?

Also, no Beyond Good & Evil on the list, so shame on you.

Does anyone feels that Vanquish entry was more about announcing the PC port than anything else? Would be a good idea to indicate where to get the other games on the list? Anyways, I plan to buy it later.

Oh, I definitely have a suspicion that most of these lists are made for commercial purposes. Most of them hardly make any sense or have some seriously weird things in there. Like Mass Effect Andromeda being included in the Most Anticipated FPS list and such.
Not to mention that they have 8 different pages you need to go through to read all the entries, which is great for posting commercials and other advertisements on the site, as you need to reload the page multiple times.

These lists are basically just click-bait to roll in advertisement money for The Escapist.

It's generally why I avoid gallery of the day, most of the time. Their list don't make a lick of sense, or poor research,
