2007 was a legend of a year. Assassin's Creed as well...
The original Assassins creed was the best one.
In terms of 'the fresh new thing' yes. AC 2 was far more improved and a better game overall. It was downhill from then on.
It had the best location and best story, but on the gameplay side it was pretty boring. AC2 was way better and more enjoyable.
although black flag wasn't much of an assassins creed game I think it was the best one so far.
The Ezio collection after that nothing to write home about, although I did enjoy Rogue but it would have been better were it not for the lack of horses in some of the wider open areas.
Everyone has there favorite. I really enjoyed 2, Brotherhood, and Black Flag. I really liked Brotherhood's combat with the way you could chain combos. Didn't play the whole trilogy because of time and fatigue so I don't know if those had the same system.
The original ass creed was pretty bad
Why would these games, not be beatable?
They mean as in quality, not if you can actually beat the game. 2007 was prob the best year in terms of games releases.
if by 2007 you mean 1997 then sure.
1997-1998 were legendary too. Many classic games released.
Pretty obvious if you read the post. In terms of which year was best ever - which is what 2017 is being portrayed as - nothing can beat 2007, imo
I think the author means beatable in terms of the quality of games that came out that year, not whether games from 2007 can be finished today.
2007 was one of the best years in gaming. COD4,Uncharted, Mass Effect, Halo 3, AC, Crysis, Mario Galaxy, Crackdown, Graw2, GOW2, Stalker, The Orange box etc...
Seeing them all listed > Dear lord...
What a wonderful time was to be a gamer.
Some behemoths right there.
You forgot bioshock ☺
And Tools of destruction, SKATE, forza 2 , the witcher , guitar hero 3imo it was the best year
2017 has the potential to match or even best it with It. Gravity Rush 2,Zelda Botw,Mario Odyssey,Yakuza 0,Xenoblade 2,Persona 5,Nier Automata,ARMS,Splatoon 2,RE7,Bomberman R,Injustice 2,Marvel vs Capcom Infinite,Tales of Bersia,Double Dragon IV,Fire Emblem Warriors,Berserk,Silver Case Remake,Fire Emblem Echoes,Rime,Tekken 7,FFXII Zodiac Age,Shenmue III,Yooka Laylee,Cuphead,Divinity Original Sin II,Ever Oasis,Freedom Planet 2,Ni no Kuni II,Sonic Mania,Sonic 2017 and Ni-Oh
wow so many shooters... and i thought people hated shooters. 2007 was the year of blurry awful textures.
Blurry awful textures? It was the best there was in 2007 lol.
I think 2017 is going to be remember as the best year in the past decade. Better than 2007? Possibly, if games don't get delayed.
2017 aint even close. Bioshock Mass Effect Halo 3 Assassins Creed Oblivion Uncharted How is this beatable? Btw we all know Red Dead wont make 2017...
Oblivion was earlier, it was ported on PS3 in 2007 though.
Half the games on that list are crap
Well, yes it looks outdated. It has still some beatifull artwork, but like most 3D games, they age fast. Part of the problem, Uncharted 2 look even better and therefore Uncharted 1 look old .. than came Uncharted 3 and now we have Uncharted 4 ... well guess what ... uncharted 3 looks dated ^^ Time is a beast. There are also examples of games that aged quite well, like Crysis, therefore farcry (2004) didn't age so well. AC1 was great at the time, but poorly aged. I replayed it a few weeks ago and must say, it no longer looks or plays good. I died a few times, just because I'm used to the controls of newer Assassin Creed games ^^
U3 looks dated that does not meant it does not still look good. "I replayed it a few weeks ago and must say, it no longer looks or plays good. I died a few times, just because I'm used to the controls of newer Assassin Creed games." Thats like saying I died in COD because I'm used to BF controls. Just because you are not used to the controls anymore does not mean the game didnt age well, it simply means you are not used to controls anymore.
No, I meant that today I would be expecting more from a game like this. I know it is the first one, and it was brillant (in my opinion) at that time, but with todays standards it just can't compete with the newer ones anymore. Gameplay mechanics, controls, ... And yes, I like to play really old games but this one is one of those that is better kept in good memory than replaying it again.
There are 16 bit games that are unbeatable in quality.I regard them as classics just like something like uncharted 1 the list goes on.
I still consider 1998 an insane year in gaming.......
Yeah, KOF '98 !!
games have reached there limit in what can be done!! only story lines can now drive games
If devs improved the AI I believe that would see completely different games. That's what I want the most but devs are obsessed with graphics and holding your hand in most AAA games.
I don't think you can beat 2007. Obviously, this year's games will be more advanced, but they won't be as goundbreaking at 2007's - they're just building on the same idea.
Shadow of Mordor so far is the only AAA game that has inovated this gen with the nemesis system.
Rainbow six siege too with its destruction
@sullynathan lol Ever heard of Battlefield?
@Acid yeah I have and it doesn't do tactical destruction
@sully didn't do tactical destruction, 🤔 did you bad company ? if a sniper was hiding in a house you could take a tank and blow a hole out of the building they were hiding in or use a grenade or c4 .
Oblivion was released in 2006 game and RDR isn't coming this year.
2004 was a better year for gaming imo here's a list of games that came out in 2004. Ninja gaiden Halo 2 Metroid prime 2 Gta san andreas Metal gear solid 3 Half life 2 Paper mario the thousand year door Viewtiful joe 2 Sly 2 Rachet and clank up your arsenal And much more.
Ass creed 1, mass effect 1 and uncharted 1 weren't classics. Mediocre games at best
Kind of like Star Wars ?? Quit your hating
This is off topic, but here goes. Uncharted 1 is still amazing. It's just a fun game to play. Uncharted 2 was fantastic and a perfect example of how a sequel should be done. Uncharted 3 & 4 are terrible compared to 1 & 2. They lack proper pacing and the fun factor just isn't there in my opinion. Uncharted 4 specifically has too many segments that just aren't fun to slog through, like the ridiculous amount of boring climbing(which 1 & 2 had none of, everything felt balanced out) and the flashback segments with young Drake and young Sam. Those "chapters" had no business being in the game. There was nothing like that garbage in Uncharted 1 & 2. Here's hoping ND realize this and hopefully make the Uncharted games what they once were, fun action packed adventure games with epic set pieces and amazing characters with great script writing. Anyone who thinks that Uncharted 4 is anywhere near as good as Uncharted 1 & 2 are just plain wrong. And this doesn't mean UC3 & 4 are bad, more like 8/10 games to me while 1 & 2 are more like 9.5/10 games. There is a huge difference.
Uncharted Drakes Fortune was fantastic, still like going on it today. I enjoyed the story more then Uncharted 4.
Oblivion came out in 2006. Otherwise, 07 was an amazing year and I remember it well. Great list.
These comparisons suck. Nothing really sticks out this year except for like three things, one including Zelda. 07 was legend in terms of games and franchises.
Well on paper this should be a very easy victory for 2017 knocking out 2007. I would have only given bioshock a victory and halo 3 and sea of thieves cancel out for me. Hopefully Sea of thieves is good.(Forgive my spelling if thieves is wrong.)
1997 is the best year in gaming IMO Final Fantasy VII Mario 64 Castlevania SOTN Tekken 3 Fallout Final Fantasy Tactics Megaman x4 Goldeneye 007 Grand Theft Auto Grand Turismo Crash Bandicoot 2 Tomb Raider 2 Wuake 2 Mortal Kombat 4 Star Fox 64 Vandal Hearts
Man, 2007 was a good year...I need to dig out my PS3.
