One series that I think is stuck in the shadows would be the ninja stealth title Shinobido. Now usually a ninja in shadows is a good thing, but I feel that Shinobido hasn't been noticed for what it is; one of the best current gen ninja series, where you're not a super ninja i.e. Ninja Gaiden.
I don't have any pets. Too high maintenance for my liking. Too much responsibility. Too much crap to deal with. Literally. Suffice to say, I'm not a fan. Don't get me wrong ... love animals from afar, just not within a two mile radius.
