The TOP 12 games made from Naughty Dog
generally a fair list ..Crash 1 should be higher, as for Crash 2 was truly the best of the three
Title should be "Ranking Every Naughty Dog Game From Good To Masterpiece"
i think JAk 2,3 and JAK Racing were not so special as they tried to copy GTA and transformed a truly fun platformer to a dark gun-blazing action title, for me these 3 games should be at the bottom...also CTR could be easily take the first place as it so well made that still there is no worth competitor (even Mariokart 8)
Lol sounds about right. Have ND ever made a bad game? Btw, screw this wretched website and its one item per page articles. These guys just make lists of 'top 10 bla bla' and then stretch them across the internet.
@Gamepard I still play CTR with mates on the ps3 occasionally. Way too much fun.
I wish I was involved with PS back in the day. Missed so many good games. I owned PS one late into the cycle and didn't really know much of what it had to offer back then. PS2 I never owned (I know, I know), as that gen I had only gamecube (and loved it). Last gen was my first time with all of the major consoles and I just couldn't really get into the older games. They are great, but it takes a sort of nostalgic buffer to not sit there and just say "wow, wtf, im putting on a new game". Not to mention, I barley have time to play the new stuff let-alone the old. Too bad, really. Maybe I will get some of these on PS-Now at some point. I will say this, I have some fond memories of many PS games when playing with my cousins, such as twisted metal, crash bandicoot (all of them) and even parappa the rappa.
@Gamepard Iv played and love CTR however the metascore for that game is truly overhyped. CTR was probably better then SNES Mario Kart however its no where near the polish or quality of Mario Kart 64+ Its clear why ND stay away from kart racing games, they cant compete with Nintendo in that category, no one can, just look at Jak X
Stop worshiping them. They don't care about you.
Agreed, Crash 1 should be a bit higher, but the rest I agree with. Naughty Dogs best game was Uncharted 2.
Has no one played WAY OF THE WARRIOR!? It's their worst game!
You mean a game they made with practically no money at all and the company was bankrupt at the time too, I cant imagine that would count.
How can it not count!? It's a Naughty Dog game. It doesn't matter what their situation was at the time they made the game. It was a two man team at the time but they were still Naughty Dog therefore it's a Naughty Dog game. Your logic is flawed beyond belief!
Can anyone explain the appeal of the crash games to me, I really really didnt like them back in the day, I much preferred spyro and gex for crazy platformer type games. I have nothing against the games I just didnt like them and cant see why anyone does.
Personally I could not rank them since I have not played all of them. I definitely did like the Uncharted series though. It is worth noting that if you look at the Naughty Dog Wiki you will see there are three retro games. Those being: "Keef the Thief" (Apple IIGS, Amiga, DOS), then "Rings of Power" (Sega Genesis/Megadrive) and "Way of the Warrior" (3DO - who had one of these?). Out of which I have only played "Rings of Power" which really pushed the Sega platform (it was in 2.5D so movement was really jerky) to the point the game was almost unplayable until you used the auto move feature.
I'd love if Naughty Dog just randomly made another Crash game after the recent dark stuff.
1. Uncharted 3 2. Uncharted 2 3. Uncharted 1 4. The Last of Us Remastered 5. The Last of Us 6. Don't Care
Just the last gen games? Oh my, you don't know them at all.
Sad . . .
You seriously never played Crash or Jak & Daxter? Dude...
Started gaming in 2007 did you?
Please tell me that you're in your early teens. Also where is Rings of Power on that list :D
If you look at may last post I did mention "Rings of Power" which IMHO is a surprisingly interesting RPG game in that it was 2.5D which really stressed out the Sega Genesis/Megadrive at the time to the point of it being unplayable. Once you learned to use the auto move feature the game was so much more easier to play. Remembering that the game came out in 1991 the graphics were quite amazing and you could see there was quite a good deal of attention to detail. It also had an interesting story line. Not bad for a 1MB game.
I'd feel embarrassed if Naughty Dog saw this post. Also Uncharted 2>Uncharted 3. There was nothing innovative about Uncharted 3, and it was all over the place, unlike Uncharted 2. Last of Us is the best story based game. Crash and CTR were both fun as ****.
UC3 was incredible. UC2 gets the leg up because it had the biggest leap. In terms of game play UC3 was the best. UC 1 has the best story and UC2 was the most well rounded/paced.
Uncharted 3 at #1............smh
Hahahah...hey, i don't blame you I was too busy playing J-RPG and J-Act in PS1 & PS2 era, only picked Jak HD recently and never liked Crash...yeah never liked it... I hate to say this, but, ND weren't as awesome as they are now...
CTR was the BEST cart game ever created, even now i think its still the best..and it was on PS1 so much limitations and they made such a greah game without even pop-ins which was usual thing on ps1 sitem cuz od lack of RAM only 2MB
Yes. To this day, the boost system in Crash Team Racing 1 destroys all the Mario Kart games combined. That game was amazing, way ahead of its time that it's insane.
See I am the same, I was playing the jrpgs , I dont like crash at all the games just where not fun to me, I really hated the running towards the screen being chased by a boulder parts. I love ND now but crash to me was not even worth putting in the play.
@GrayFOX333, D-DU I read in Wiki that CTR had a high quality. But by the time CTR was released i was already 16 and games like CTR seemed like a childish game to me. Your nostalgia is CTR, but to me it's Ridge Racer Type-4...
Your list went off the rails immediately imo.
1. TLOU 2. UC1 3. Crash 1 4. UC2 5. Crash 2 6. Crash 3 7. UC3 (haven't played J&D yet) I want a Crash HD set for PS4 with trophies, thanks
The jak series is excellent and the HD collection is super cheap. Go out and buy it! Although to be fair I had an N64 and didn't own a ps1 when I was a kid so I haven't played the Crash series.
I actually have it LOL, haven't played it yet. I went from PS1 to Gamecube/Xbox so that's why I missed great games. I was very happy for the Jak and Ico/Shadow HD releases.
Wow. That's an interessting order. UC1 over 2 and 3 and Crash 1 over 2 and 3. In my opinion the sequels of both games have improved on a lot of things.
Yeah... my problem may be that I really enjoyed and fell in love with UC1 and Crash 1 when I played those for the first time. Therefore the sequels are "just more of the same" for me, not in a bad way, but the sequels never had the allure the originals did. There's something about visiting a new world you love for the first time. It's great to go back and revisit them and the sequels are great, but that first time feeling, that's what wins for me.
Naughty dogs, gaming legends. All great games
The Last of Us is the best game Naughty Dog ever made. Then uncharted 2
It's amazing how even Naughty Dog's worst game is great. XD
UC2 , TlOU , crash series , jak and dex.. Are the best for me .. Uc3 is the worst
worst is a little too harsh maybe :/
The top 3, for me, would be 1) The Last of Us 2) Jak and Daxter 3) Uncharted 3
Legitimately surprised they mentioned Naughty Dog's early games, before PlayStation. Still good games, by the way. My favorite is The Last of Us, but Crash 2, Jak III, and Uncharted 2 are all tied for second.
Naughty Dog Best to worst they havent a Bad game ever it should be called Great to Best.
The Jak and Daxter trilogy will probably always be my favourite ND games.
Jak and Daxter will always be my favorite ND games. All ND games have that special touch and charm, but in my opinion the Jak games had the super special touch that really made them unwrap themselves to who they are today and taught them how to create a great story in which keeps the player glued with incredibly likable characters. That touch of ND didn't start with U1
1. The Last of Us 2. Uncharted 2 3. Crash Bandicoot 3 That's missing so many, as I'd put a lot of their titles in 1st, 2nd & 3rd spots. In tiers would be easier: 1.TLoU, U2, CB3, J&D:Precursor Legacy 2. U1, CB1, CB2, Jak 3 3. Jak 2, U3
i agree with your tier system totally :)
I like that tier rating system much more than a top 10 styled list cause it makes it easier to choose where to put which game. Mine would look like that: 1. (Naughty God-tier) TLOU, U2, CB3, J&D: PL 2. (Great) U3, Jak 2, Jak 3, CB2 3. (Good) U1, CB1 4. (Mediocre) Rings of Power
1.TLoU, J&D:PL, U2, U3 2. CB3, CB2, Jak 3,U1 3. Jak 2, CB1 J&D:PL was perfect for me, I hated the hover car gta stuff in Jak2, among many other things.
1-Uncharted 2 2-The Last Of Us 3-Jak III
I played all the games except Jak and Dexter I don't know why I didn't play it yet maybe in the near future I will try it
Jak 1 and 3 worse than Jak 2? This guy must be high, Jak 2 was a bizarre half sandbox GTA style game filled to the brim with frustrating mini games and a massive spike in Difficulty over the first game.
1. Crash 3 2. Crash 2 3. Crash 1 4. Jak 3 5. Jak 1 6. Jak 2 7. Never played uncharted series and didnt like TLOU as a game.
Did this kid really say Uncharted 2's multiplayer felt tacked on? Tomb Raider's multiplayer felt tacked on. Uncharted 2's multiplayer was an equally important aspect to the overall experience of that game. For the first few months, it was fantastic until Naughty Dog released that fated update to the multiplayer that just ruined it.
12. Jak X: Combat Racing (2005) ... and I am not clicking through another 11 pages... seriously, why not put this on one page or make at least 3-4 games on one page... jez
My top 3 would be: 1. The last of us 2. Uncharted 2 3. Jak II
such a limited list...ND has been around since the 16-bit era and they didn't start that great... by far their worst game was Way of the Warrior on 3D0...back when Jason Rubin (original founder) was still there and their dev team consisted of like 4 people. all the characters in that game were their friends. lmao. i had that POS game. worst fighting game ever...
I've wanted a 3DO for almost 20 years just to play Way of the Warrior. That was one of my most anticipated games when it came out thanks to the first two Mortal Kombat games. They filmed the stop motion in Jason's apartment. But I have yet to get a 3DO. Back then I got a Jaguar instead. It was cheaper and more powerful.
please do yourself a favor and just forget about this awful turd :) my buddy and i were SO EXCITED when we finally got this game, esp since we were/are MK and SF fanatics, only to have our dreams CRUSHED once we started playing it. we really tried though. we printed out move lists. we played and played until we could finally get some moves and fatalities down. it was still awful. best part of the game was the CG intro and White Zombie soundtrack which at the time was amazing (to us). look up vids on youtube...it's plays even worse than it looks. look for a match w/ Dragon where he wins and you might see his awful awful celebration dance. i still have my 3D0 and a bunch of games including this one...i don't think i'll ever fire it up again. lol. side note: that same buddy also bought a Jaguar only to have his dreams crushed again when he realized how crappy it was other than AvP. at least w 3D0 we had more than one decent game.
Uncharted 2 Jak and Daxter The Precursor Legacy Uncharted 3 Crash Team Racing The Last of Us Uncharted Jak 3 Jak 2 Haven't played the others
I did not care for UC3...Yes It looked great...but over all I thought TR out did it...Looking forward to UC4...
For me: Crash Team Racing The Last of Us Uncharted 2 Everything else is also way above average and make most developers look like monkeys.
Loved that "Nobody's Perfect" trophy in TLoU - Left Behind when you play Jak X in the arcade. Shows ND's self awareness and that they are still down to earth very much even after getting all the praise and people saying they never fail. That was cool since the game really was mediocre and not as good as CTR.
1. The Last of Us 2. Uncharted 2 3. Crash Bandicoot Warped 4. Crash Team Racing 5. Jak 3
Way of the Warrior on 3DO should definitely be no.1; lol
