[QUOTE=Pixelcade]Orion: Toy Commander! I was the only person in my small circle of friends that loved that game for all it was. Great entry.
You are not alone. When I played it during the Dreamcast days, I only thought it was an okay game, but about a year and a half ago I read about a "secret garden" you can unlock when you complete all the missions. I started from scratch again and since it was a much deeper experience this time around, the beauty of the game just opened up to me.
Everything in that house can be interacted with: light switches, faucets, TVs, books, cereal boxes, even the turds in the cat's litter box. It just felt like a real house. The music is awesome, that goes without saying. The missions have tons of variety to them as well. One mission you're putting out a fire, the next you're fighting Godzilla, the next you're going down into the toilet to find a boss in the sewer, the next you're trying to boil eggs, the next you're escorting a supply armada, the next you're trying to spray stinky sneakers with lysol, you get the point.
Oh yeah, the boss battles are awesome. There's a toy car (with eyeballs) that you have to battle in the garage, and man, destroying him seems to take hours, but the entire battle is enjoyable.
I could talk about it all day
