These Platinum Games cult classics launched 10 years ago, and they're being bundled together on PS4 and Xbox One to celebrate.

Hunt: Showdown -- February 18
Available on: PS4
For the uninitiated, Hunt tasks you with tracking down a monster on a large map--but you're not alone. Whether you play solo or with a friend, any other player can turn their sights on you and end your hunt early. If your character dies, they're gone forever, along with any gear they have equipped. What's more, successfully slaying the monster puts a bounty on your head, sending all those other hunters after you.
