What's the problem? It's just my opinion.

I don't give a fuck about what you think.

Halo is pretty garbage in the grand scheme. Never understood the draw...they always bored me senseless. But props for BFBC2. That game is under appreciated. The maps had the best infantry combat of any of the BF games and neither BF3 or BF4 matched the destructibility.

Firstly, I never owned an N64. Secondly, I'm not interested in reverence. It's a list about games we enjoyed the most, not which ones are the most important to the genre.
kythlyn  +   228d ago
In my case, it is one of the First Person Shooters I enjoyed the most. ;)

(That's because it's an awesome game!)

Lol at Counter-Strike only being on 1 persons list.
N2NOther  +   228d ago
Only one person liked it enough to put it on their list. Why is that funny?
kythlyn  +   228d ago
That's actually part of why we have 5 separate lists. It's interesting to see the differing opinions. Sometimes we end up with similar lists, but they're usually drastically different. But as the one person who listed Counter-strike, I agree... lol.
PurpHerbison  +   227d ago
Counter-Strike was just way too iconic to not be on at least 3/5 of the lists.
Thoth2020  +   226d ago
I had a Mac. We never had CounterStrike. But also, Marathon was better than anything at the time.

Chris disappointing me. The only thing I liked gameplay wise from Halo 4 was the thrusterpack and hard light shield. Everything else they did with ordinance, perks, and this whole class creation system just to modernize the game to the 100 other FPS that are doing the same thing. At least they kept away from the ADS so its kind of like Halo there. Sadly Vehicles are sort of useless if you push up since everyone has access to there scooty puff junior 3 billion dollar vehicle disabling device.

Get Halo out of here. Overrated.

Top 5: Doom (took everyone by surprise in such a way that has never been matched), Wolfenstein 3D (the first widely successful FPS and Doom's daddy), the original Call of Duty (look what it spawned, though back then it actually respected the material), Battlefield 2 (most ambitious and successful PvP battlefield action game to that point, and in some ways still hasn't been surpassed), Quake 2 (online mods for this game were epic).

Edit: System Shock 2 (pure atmosphere) and Goldeneye (first really great split screen console FPS) maybe fit somewhere in there.

No one's list has Marathon on it, other than mine. It is hard not to reply to everyone and shout "MARATHON" a lot. Or hell, Pathways Into Darkness, which released before most of you were born.
