What is the Best Gaming Trilogy? Gaming Roundtable

The VGU.TV staff discuss what they believe are the best gaming trilogies of all time.

The story is too old to be commented.
ATi_Elite1739d ago (Edited 1739d ago )

As soon as Half Life 3 comes out BAM End of Debate!

but right now

STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl
STALKER Clear Sky
STALKER Call of Pripyat

is my favorite trilogy!

UnHoly_One1739d ago

I have to admit I never saw what was so special about Half Life.

My vote would go for Mass Effect if they didn't completely botch the third one, but since they did...

Probably Xenosaga or God of War.

SuperLupe1739d ago

Same here, played the Orange Box back in the day and didnt see what the heck all the hype was about.

BlackTar1871739d ago

Half Life 1 for its time ws EPIC and amazing. I never felt that way to extremes in part 2.

Kalowest1739d ago

"didn't completely botch the third one, but since they did..."
You mean if Bioware didn't botch the series after Mass Effect 1. I can't even remember what happened in ME3, but IK the game it looked pretty.

Eyeco1739d ago

You guys never saw anything special about the games physics, AI, story, level design, the ingenious physics based environmental puzzles, lengthy campaign, gravity gun.

I'll understand not to like the game heck it's your opinion, but to say that you cant's see the appeal is kinda ignorant

NukaCola1739d ago

flOw, Flower, Journey

checkmate

MikeMyers1739d ago

Wouldn't trilogies have to be games that ended after 3 games?

UnHoly_One1738d ago

@Eyeco, No, I didn't see anything special about any of that stuff.

I thought it was one of the most bland, boring, and generic shooters I ever played.

It was one of VERY few games I actually left unfinished because it was awful.

Ezz20131737d ago

i give it to uncharted, god of war, mass effect

Warcraft 1,2,3 enough said.

BlackTar1871739d ago

Great games but Warcraft 3 let me down.

Hitman07691738d ago (Edited 1738d ago )

I just really don't like it... it seems for kids... only Blizzard Universe I can't get into no matter how hard I try

OH...

PS-trick question. there is none, its all opinions.

solidt121739d ago

This is a hard question to answer unless somebody just sat down and played through every trilogy.

showtimefolks1739d ago

god of war for me personally

Reverent1739d ago

No idea how you got so many disagrees. Personally, I absolutely loved the STALKER games.

ATi_Elite1738d ago

STALKER is wonderful and too bad Consolers missed out on that Wonderful experience as Consolers DO NOT have an Open World FPS/RPG.

Also lot of them have said they find nothing special about Half Life 2. OMG HL2 only ushered in about 50 different gaming innovations from Facial Expressions to the gravity gun along with the Sandbox game style.

I can't wait for Survarium (Open World FPS/RPG/MMO) from the Dev team that made STALKER

Late 2013 or mid 2014

Reverent1738d ago

I've actually been following Survarium very closely since it was announced. It's a bit of a shame that virtually nothing has really been mentioned of the game.

Eyeco1738d ago

Unless you can call Borderlands open world we have that, and unless you can Fallout 3 an FPS we have that to, but yeah I agree I've always wanted to play STALKER, it looked scary as fuu

otherZinc1738d ago

Halo & Mass Effect. In that order.

Etseix1739d ago

a very good choice indeed
but I'll stick with Xenosaga trilogy

XENOSAGA!!!!

PsnGammer211738d ago

They need make an hd remake of xenosaga

raWfodog1739d ago

I agree with you on that. Kratos is my favorite videogame character.

Simon_Brezhnev1739d ago

God of War and Prince of Persia.

Kalowest1739d ago

I find God of Incest to be overrated. Dumb story and main character.

Rainstorm811739d ago (Edited 1739d ago )

God of incest???........do u know anything about Greek mythology?

You are lucky that's all that gets referred to ( albeit BARELY ) from that time.....Watch Sparticus , it makes any of GoW sexual references seem mild

**even though u are clearly trolling**

Reverent1739d ago

@Rainstorm, accidentally gave you a disagree, sorry :/

But yeah, Kalowest is trolling too hard.

TheSauce1739d ago

What is with this site? Say a PS series and you get tons of up votes, say a xbox series and you get down voted. I think many forget that these are people's OPINIONS!

Septic1739d ago

Don't take it to heart, it's just the way of N4G is. It doesn't mean your opinion is wrong. I understand your annoyance though.

MagneticDeath21739d ago

Not really there is alot of downvotes on the PS side as well.

Rainstorm811739d ago

Maybe he got down voted because Halo isn't a trilogy.....it's a saga...or will be

Hence Halo 1-6....all direct sequels of each other

InTheLab1738d ago

Septic's posting of Halo proves you wrong. 15agrees/14disagrees.

Perception and reality rarely line up when it comes to this site.

Number-Nine1739d ago

this generation..gears of war.

TheOneEyedHound1739d ago (Edited 1739d ago )

Nah I say Uncharted by far.

Gears was great, but once Uncharted 2 came out, the Uncharted series was in another arena artistically, story-wise, ect.

Septic1739d ago

Agreed. Whilst Uncharted never really was a contender against Gears as far as multiplayer is concerned, as a whole, Uncharted trumps it as a more memorable series.

Number-Nine1739d ago

uncharted is definitely a solid trilogy but it lost some points, in my opinion, with how bad uncharted 3 was. it was nothing like 1 or 2.

Root1739d ago (Edited 1739d ago )

Number-Nine

It wasn't perfect but it was still amazing....not as a good as Uncharted 2 but how can you top the best when people will have very high expectations.

@Below

They do reference past games though

Elena in Uncharted 3 to Drake

"No Cursed treasure" (Drakes Fortune)

"Nope"

"No Diabolical Warlords" (Among Thieves)

"Nooooo"

Then when your in the airfield and Elena gives you a lift where Drake jumps on top of the car

"Hey Déjà vu right"

"haha Yeah" (Jumping on the train in Uncharted 2)

Ducky1739d ago

I don't really consider uncharted to be a trilogy because not much carries over from one to the other. The possibility of UC4 is pretty much open.
Could probably swap UC3 around with UC2 and not much would change, especially with the way characters show up and disappear.

While a series like GodOfWar carries over and the final entry is a culmination of previous events.

I love how you get disagrees for YOUR OWN OPINION. I bet everyone who disagreed has never played Gears of War because its awesome.

aLucidMind1738d ago

Or because they simply didn't like the game for one reason or another. And disagreeing with another person's opinion is totally fine considering nobody is attacking him.

shawncobbins1738d ago

Finally somebody with brains, Gears is easily the best trilogy out right now.
