Now if only video game publishers would develop a Lego FPS with Marvel characters and racing/skateboarding side games, made specifically for the Wii...that might be fun.
Ah, CS on the console: what a shame.
Indeed. For shame...
Back in the Xbox Live days of Xbox 1, Rainbow Six 3 and Counter Strike were the top played games. Really brings back memories.
With one exception, all the Tony Hawk Games after Pro Skater 2 sucks, period. Gran Turismo 4 is indeed a boring game. I do not care what the reviews say but after playing A-Spec, GRID, & Forza 2, that game clearly sucks. Counter-Strike only sucked on the console because of the crappy controls. I agree that the first Resistance was very generic it has more in common with those crappy movies on the Syfy channel than that of an actual Sci-Fi epic a la Halo. The lego games are cute but c'mon, where's the gameplay at?
You shouldn't really make an article on a topic if you need to include games that were bundled with something to make a point(wii play and I think the marvel game was bundled with 360 in 2007). He even says resistance was good and puts it on there. Maybe he ran outa games. Also CS on xbox? Thats soooooo old. Cs on PC isnt exacty free, you need to have hl first which does cost money. stand alone CS for PC costed about 20(I bought it just so I wouldnt have to DL with my 56k modem). Also I think its really stupid to say the lego games dont deserve the sales when they are a kids game. Ive never played one but I used to love real legos when I was a kid(dragon castles, submarines and space bases baby) so why is is stupid for kids to buy a KIDs game??
You don't realize that CS was actually free to DL and play for a long time and to my recollection you didn't even need HL to download and play it. Later on Valve bought the game from the indy devs who created it and now they charge for it.(tho it's included in the killer deal that is the Orange Box) Even now though, you could still get CS for free if you really wanted too. :P
Ive been playing cs since 1.2 to the present. The original CS was a free mod for Half-life. It was created using the tools taht came with the original HL. Meaning you had to have half-life to play the mod. After valve bought CS they released CS as a stand alone disk(for about 20$) that didnt need HL to work. I had HL already but bought the disk because I only had a 56k modem back in the day and didnt want to wait days for it to DL. Counter-strike source was free and came with Half-life 2. If you dont have half life you have to pay for the stand alone CS.
Both those games are great. Resistance was just so memorable for its amazing weapon and enemy design, and with such a great story too. Gran Turismo games have always been great for their level of detail in the cars and tracks, and for impressive graphics too. Games that should be on this list are Halo 2 & 3, and every Grand Theft Auto after GTA 3. Those games are terrible, but there are enough retards in the world to enjoy them that they become best sellers.
why Halo and Gears aren't holding hands in the first place... i wonder...
It's easy, because they are great games. Silly question!!!
Halo? Epic? Hahaha. Halo is a multiplayer game, if you played it for anything else you are an invalid.
To even have CS, Resistance or GT4 on there is pure flame bait. To the author of this article. Get a life, and not one in journalism, because you suck. Plain and simple.
Well it's been a long time but I could swear I remember downloading and playing CS for free without even owning Half-life. That was many years ago so it's foggy.
CS, Resistance and GT4 are all awesome games. I prefer the first Resistance to Resistance 2, much much more enjoyable and "AAA" game imo, even though it had less features.
@IdleLeeSiuLung It's easy, because they are great-ly OVER-HYPED-CRAP games. truly Silly thing is the people who got owned into the HYPE... TRULY SILLY INDEED...
Did someone not play Resistance online, Resistance was and still is a fantastic game and I used all of the weapons, they all had their ups and downs and to say the Machine gun was the only one to use is a lie. Resistance shinned online much like COD 4 did but that's not on the list. Why?
I agree. If you played through RFOM and only used the machine gun is ovbiously an idiot. The spike mines, auger, slow motion sniper rifle, dragon flame thrower and the gun that tagged enemies (can't remeber the name right now) alone where worth the price of admition to RFOM. But as usual if it's not Halo or Gears of War it's not a "real" shooter
GT4 was worth it for the dirt racing alone. I don't think this guy understands the concept of racing sims. If he didn't like that game than he better not pick up forza3, because its basically the same thing - a racing sim sequel with minor improvements and a bunch of content to make up for that. Resistance 1 did kind of suck, thats why the sequel didn't sell 1/2 as much as the first one, but if you go through the game only using the first gun than you just don't know what your doin.
LBP MGS4 KZ2 R&C none of these are best sellers !
1. Halo 2. Halo for PC 3. Halo 2 4. Halo 2 for PC 5. Halo 3 6. Halo: Wars 6. Halo 3: P.E.A.T. Bonus - preditable game that will outsell everything but totally suck: Halo: Reach
to say resistance is a bland, unimaginative game, is stupid. Insomniac basically did what everyone thought was impossible, make a fresh ww2 shooter (although it does stretch the term, ww2 shooter.) GT4 was awesome. deserved all its sales. Tony Hawk series didn't blow until Underground 2, which really sucked. Replace those with any game that's title begins with Wii and your list makes sense.
I agree, it's totally insane to call Resistance bland. And to say its plethora of creative weapons were useless is just as silly. There are many parts of the game where it would be VERY difficult if not for the auger, or the gun that ricochets off walls and you can set traps with (forget the name). Plus, the level design was great, and it had a unique health system too.
Resistance is a good and fun game. It was pretty much a basic shooter and had a few flaws but overall still a good franchise. And I also enjoyed Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Great multiplayer game.
I still remember playing proskater 2, and there was a pond that created an infinite grinding point spreee!!!!
I like a LOT LEGO batman..and resistance and GT4..not suck at all.
Yeah I know where you're talking about. I left the game running doing that while I was asleep back in the day. Too bad there was no Achievement/Trophy support to reward me for my fried PS2 after that.
@2.3 I believe it was Philadelphia. There was an empty little water fountain.
I agree completely!
I will admit that other than R:FoM and Motorstorm, PS3 day 1 lineup was crap! for R:FoM, although it has a dull atmosphere, it suits the theme of the game itself perfectly! the gameplay is solid and I love many things about it; from the unique old-school health system to the weapons selection wheel which is majorly missed in R2! the story is far from generic and still easily beats most of FPS released this gen in that section and MP is rock solid 40-player mayhem! CoD4 looks better than R:FoM, YES but in terms of story, it's generic and has no co-op and MP max at 32-player! R:FoM is THE game that brought me into FPS and for Insomniac, I hope they combine the good things in both R:FoM & R2 for the next R3! fingers cross!
I've only played 15 minutes of Resistance and that was enough to blow me away. Seems stupid that they would say it sucks.. ~~ http://tiny.cc/yzUel
@ badz149 Motorstorm was not a launch title for PS3.
I was running through my ammo like crazy and I loved that game. I can't beat it on medium, yet I beat KZ2 on hard.
from the day it was released, until the day i bought my PS3. So yea, the game sucked ? no i dont think so. Lame drivers think so though. You know, the kind of people who post their youtube vids banging walls , running off road and blame the controls ? :D
I actually prefer Resistance to Halo (offline). When I played Resistance 2, I had a blast. But it kept reminding me of all the great moments in R: FOM. I think the story in R2 took a turn for the worse. No narrator (I actually liked her), and a talking Angel? WTF? When it comes to FPS's, Resistance is one of my favorite series. It's hard to compare it to Killzone 2 because they're so different, but I definitely prefer the story, weapons and enemies in Resistance over the ones in Halo. Unfortunately, because I rented both Resistance games, I've had little playtime with them online. I did get to play the R2 Beta for a couple of days though. Obviously most probably won't agree with me, and that's okay.
motorstorm was deffo a launch title http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... and i do agree with it. Resistance was a decent game, but it did only sell as well as it did due to it being a launch title. the list is pretty true as well, i hate when you see games like wii sports in top 10's... that's just cus ppl bought a wii, they had no choice whether they actually wanted the game or not
What the hell? Resistance and GT4 totally did not suck at all. The only reason he put GT4 on there was because "it was boring." Let me tell you, it is faaaaaar from boring. It's obvious that his idea of a fun racing game is smashing cars up in Burnout, and can't appreciate a proper (as proper as you can get with the PS2) sim. Both Resistance and GT4 deserved every sale they got.
RE:FOM story is actually pretty good. I wouldn't call it watered down. all the elements of a well written SciFi adventure/mystery are there. The closing of the Russian border and no contact for years, the rise of the mysterious Chimera. the Hero that has an apparent resistance to the Chimera that makes him more than human, but still human. man, it is all there. To be honest, I preferred Resistance 1 more than Resistance 2, they really made it less fun with the 2 weapon load out and hordes of Chimera running at you. to me it was more annoying than fun. granted, it does look alot better though.
Same here. R:FOM was the main game that I got a PS3 for originally and I wasn't disappointed in the least. The single player was great and the multiplayer was simply some of the best I've ever played - and it STILL IS. I enjoyed R2, but I liked the original even more. What a garbage website this article came from.
R1 was better than R2 in almost every way and R2 didnt even look a lot better. The graphics were not that great.
to stop reading when I saw Resistance :FoM, but it got worst when I saw GT4. rofl. This guy should just quit his job, he's terrible. But hey, this is just an opinion from him. So don't let it get to you guys. ;)
gears of war 2 halo 3 gta4 cod4 bioshock ect.
Translation: "Blah blah... Xbox sucks.... blah blah... halo sucks... blah blah...."
By mentioning Halo 3 he's a fanboy... great logic there. I played and completed Halo 3 on it's hardest diffuculty and found it too loose and too unserious, I then went and played Resistance and found it grittier and more serious. Also he mentioned Gears of War 2 and not Gears 1 possiply because he really enjoyed Gears 1 and was let down by Gears 2 that is not a fanboy. He also names 3 multiplatform games which are ALL out on the PS3 so he is not a fanboy maybe just maybe he didn't like Halo 3 and maybe just maybe he in his personal opinion found Gears 2 a dissapointing sequel. Him having his opinion on two games is not being a fanboy. Calling him a fanboy for having perfectly justifiable opinions on the otherhand does make YOU a fanboy.
Please remove the BIOSHOCK from the list, it's one of the best game to grace on this generation consoles.
Hey MRV, are you seriously trying to defend a fanboy when it is a very well-known fact that you are a fanboy yourself? Come on. What kind of logic is that?
Wrong... Wrong... Wrong... Wrong... Wrong... Wrong... the answer is killzone 2 oh wait thats not a best-seller game oops
I have played and completed Gears 2 and Halo 3, I also completed with a friend COD 4 on 360... on it's hardest diffuculty. Yes I prfer my PS3, I am used to the XMB but that does not make me a fanboy for prefering one console over another due to personal preferance. The 360 is a great console with many great games BUT it's not to everyone I hate the dashboard and dislike the controller... but I still play it because the game are good. And the ONLY reason I prefer my PS3 downright is all my friends are on PS3. So call me a fanboy but your the deluded one if you believe it.
this article is pathetic. Resistance, and GT4 deserve every dollar they pulled in. It's been mentioned before in the comments... Most third - party Wii games can qualify for that list
Me and my friends still play R:FoM pretty much every time i have people over. I played Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 nonstop as well. It was by far the best of the games. I remember upgrading all my people and building a custom skull-headed dude with full stats. and from what i've heard, Gran Turismo 4 is a really good game as well. What the hell? I've seen some bad lists of [best/worst] type of [genre/category] games that [do/dont] [something] - but this is by far the worst.
Really? You still play the first Resistance? I hear the second one is a million times better.
I didnt like resistance 2 at all and i much prefered resistance 1.
The first is better than the second. The only thing really great about the second is the Co-Op, but that gets boring after a while
I prefer the utter chaos of the multiplayer on the 2nd. Everyone's busy throwing grenades at each other while I pick them off at a distance.
Resistance 1 has a decent split screen multiplayer. I still go back to it with friends from time to time too. I'm not a huge FPS fan but Resistance has definitely been one of my favourite FPS experiences.
GT4 and Resistance on that list? Hmm... Credibility of the site for the future = nil.
Agreed, the future of this site is an open book after this article.
Why Halo 3 is not mentioned is beyond me, they recycles the same things from the last 2 and slightly update the graphics and it sales. Plenty of shooters out there that do it better like Rainbow six and should get more recognition like COD 4.
Err, how can they put Resistance in there. Halo3 should be in their instead since Resistance:FOM is the game what Halo3 whishes it could have been. Fall of man is actually more true to Halo CE than Halo3 is. The people blinded by popularity... the irony. @below: in my opinion Halo3 should be in there. I was told how wonderful it was but reviews and popular opinion and yet when I played it I just thought, wtf is the BS. It got comfortably higher scores than Resistance FOM despite being inferior in every way. Never known such a bad game to get amazing scores and amazing sales.
nah Halo 3 shouldnt be there either, but putting resistance there, for the reasons he said is just idiotic. Games F8cking amazing, not to mention the amazing sequel it brought us as well.
LOL. Sorry to say but your opinion is the minority when it comes to Halo 3.
@ Halo3 MLG Pro So is the author's, with every game on the list. The whole premise of the article is these games weren't as good as sales would suggest. But I agree, Halo 3 is not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination. The MP, matchmaking, co-op, split screen, etc. set the standard for the FPS genre this gen.
Resistance was an outstanding game. That basically makes this article ridiculous alone.
LOL thats all im going to say about this article and who ever wrote it, GET A LIFE or play the games at least. Putting 2 great games (Resistance and GT4) in the "Totaly Suck" category.
wait what? #7 Counter-Strike (Xbox)? GTFO you for real? fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu one of the best multiplayer shooter on xbox 1 web site failed
GT4, Resistance on the list = FAIL
The inclusion of Gran Turismo 4 certainly was enough to carry the weight. "...Resistance is one game on this list that's not awful, just not as good as its sales would suggest. A bland, unimaginative shooter that felt dated..." Oh really? Now what the hell exactly can be said about Halo 3? Does this author think Halo 3 is the Little Big Planet of the FPS genre or what? Author is just a fanatic vying for attention.
Actually, Halo 3 is the FPS equivalent to LBP.
GT4 is everything else but bad, its the best racing game out there for now, Resistance is not awesome but its not that bad.
R:FOM is not perfect and was insomniac's first step into the fps genre, but it's a damn good game. The story was good, enemies get tougher as you progressed and it paved the way for a superior sequel. It would have been more appropriate to put some more wii titles on there.
I am surprised at the number of people that found Resistance 2 superior to Resistance Fall of Man. Granted, I played them pretty much back to back, so maybe I was burnt out on it. But I thought the second one was inferior and certainly not one million times better as some have suggested. This reminds me of my love for "Bulder's Gate Dark Alliance" and the let down I felt playing "Dark Alliance 2." Sometimes a game is so great that an otherwise good game (the sequel) doesn't seem as good because expectations are so high. Stand alone, Resistance 2 would have been a great game for me, as well as Dark Alliance 2, but they both had a high bar to reach to be better than their predecessors. Neither reached the bar in my opinion.
