10 games to play before tomorrow's Armageddon

GameZone writes, "We have made a list of the five games we would play before tomorrow's Armageddon. This list is not necessarily the best games ever made that deserve a playthrough before the Mayans f**k it all up; instead, it's a list of games that mean a lot to us and that we'd like to play one last time." (Diablo 2, Flower, Mass Effect 2, PC, PS3, Retro, Skylanders Giants, The Last Of Us, Ultima Online, Wii U, Xbox 360)

do not worry
about the world coming to an end today, for it is already tomorrow somewhere else.
rainslacker  +   1075d ago
pfft, the Mayans were around before the existence of time zones, so obviously they were talking about Colombian time, not somewhere else.:)

I think if the world really is ending (which it's not) maybe you should just hang out with someone you love, or make a move on someone.
violents  +   1075d ago
I heard the planetary alignment that the mayan calender signifies is supposed to happen at 11:11 am Central time on 12-21-12. I think that is near the same time that they would have been on too. We'll see I guess. Good luck peoples.

Rumplebumpkin  +   1075d ago
I don't think any right-minded person believes that the world is going to end anyway.
MaxXAttaxX  +   1075d ago
The Mayans never predicted the end of the world in the first place.
Reverent  +   1075d ago
@Nathan, exactly, the system they invented for their long count calendar simply only works for up to Dec. 21, 2012. There is literally zero reason to believe that they actually intended for it to end on that date.

OT: I really like this list. Skylander's Giants I don't agree with, at least if it were ME playing it, but I like this guy's reason for it. If I had a son, I could understand his choice for it.

Lifesanrpg was making a joke, just fyi. The whole thing is retarded though. I actually knew some people at school who bought into it. Some people just latch onto crazy ideas.
FlameBaitGod  +   1075d ago
Um... Mayans calendar ended on that day, they didn't say the world would end :/ and if you know something about the Mayans you would know they where able to predict a lot of stuff.

They found only one tablet that says what will happen at the end of this cycle of thier calender and the last three sections are broken off so no one knows what it really says. It basically says

"on the last day of this cycle the world will..." and the last three symbols are broken off. We will find out tommorrow I guess.

Speaking of great games.

Does anyone have any thoughts on dishonored. I just finished ac3, my last trilogy/story driven series I had to finish. Now I'm looking for something else. I've heard good things about dishonored but as I've wrapped up all my series I don't want to get sucked into another one with cliffhangers and such. So does dishonored end on a clean slat and can be a nice Just fun stand alone like mirrors edge?
Riggans42  +   1075d ago
I can't comment on the end since I haven't finished it yet, but I'm loving Dishonored so far. Definitely get it.
TekoIie  +   1075d ago
Play Bioshock if you haven't already and if you like that you'll find dishonoured just as fun if not better.

I'm sure Bioshock is dirt cheap now so you it's a win win situation or better yet I'm pretty sure it has a demo :D

cpayne93  +   1075d ago
So what if we do get continues, the end of the world makes this game unbeatable. Does anyone know any cheat codes?
onyoursistersback  +   1075d ago
I had a feeling that the Konami code will come inhandy years later
strigoi814  +   1075d ago
just play smart and bet on someone who believe on this and tell him, if he survived till tomorrow you gonna get all his money on his bank account
rainslacker  +   1075d ago
Naaa, if he really believes it have him give it to you today, and sign the deed to his house and car over to you as well. After all he won't be needing it tomorrow.:)

bunt-custardly  +   1075d ago
I've not ever followed the Mayan prophecies or Googled, but I assume the end is a metaphor, meaning a new beginning for something.
FunAndGun  +   1075d ago
A new beginning meaning the age of Aquarius.

It's all in the stars!

A new age comes every 2150 years.

No apocalypse. They found more of the Mayan calender. As it says in the article, "December 21, 2012 simply marks the beginning of a new calendar cycle and not an apocalypse".
aliengmr  +   1075d ago
Ohh NASA. Spoiling everyone's fun with facts and logic.
brbobcat  +   1075d ago
This is why their funding was cut. They've got no sense of humor.
aliengmr  +   1075d ago
They shot an SUV to Mars and landed it using a retro-rocket powered crane. If that isn't a sense of humor I don't know what is.

More interesting, what would you as a gamer choose as your last game?
I`d probably go for Final Fantasy VI or Chrono Trigger.
rainslacker  +   1075d ago
I'd pick Xenosaga, but those first 6 hours are kind of hard to get through.

Edit: Ha, just noticed your name. Good times.

You'd think the weather or something would go hay wire if it was ending.. Plus it's 12/12/12 in Asia I believe. False rumors are false.

If the world does end I hope we get to pick the colour of the ending
BlaqMagiq24  +   1075d ago
Either we all die or it's going to be a real life version of The Last of Us minus the mindless mutated people.

I hope the Reapers don't arrive - I chose the synthesis ending so they are suppose to be our friends now.
momthemeatloaf  +   1075d ago
Tomorrow is an enlightenment, not the end of the world. Before an enlightenment, things usually get really bad. How bad have things been lately? Pretty bad.

The Mayans were astrologers, extremely brilliant ones, better than anything we have today. Astrology is all about emotion and mood, and how we act and the things we do. Tomorrow, we change, for the better. We will be cleansed and feel like we've entered a new era because it is the end of the 4th age on the Mayan Calendar.
