Go Gaming Giant looks at the recent trend of user created content and gives you the top 10 user created content games.
i played that game it was decent, hated the fact u need to do it ALL online.
LBP beats them all!
Not according to that dumb list. How can ModNation beat LittleBigPlanet when it isn't even out yet?
Great article, I tend to be a person who enjoys making my own fun and the rise of games where users either contribute in the form of content or gameplay has been one of my favorite parts of this generation.
Games that allow you to be creative with your own content are certainly some of the most enjoyable gaming experiences you can have. It's unfortunate that your options on consoles are very limited.
Good stuff. Slightly saddened by the lack of Half Life for all of the mods done on it, or DOTA, one of the most successful user created games.
haha well if that were the case Halo 3 could've had a better chance of making it into the top ten, but I decided not to go into the whole modding and all that nonsense. It's not as accessable to players who aren't hackers lol
hackers????? Mods for HL include using the included editor to create your own games and assets for games like HL2/CS/L4D. For example the original CS was a MOD of half-life. Half life 2 should be on the list simply because anyone can make their own maps. Things like new skins, game types, maps and even complete games like garrys mod are all created using the editor. It has nothing to do with hackers.
ye I think LBP still rules king in this category
if LBP rules the category you'd think it be #1 on your list!
I didn't make the list, one of our writers did ;)
it is great, but it sometimes just feels too overwhelming. it gives you the tools, but how many people really utilize them?
I have never had the patience for user created games, howeverf some of the things that people make are unbelievable
it's true, some people are very creative, but I'm with you I usually don't have the patience to create my own stuff
me three, I love the idea of user created content...but in the end just spoon feed me some action and pretty, pretty polygons please!
When is Mod Nation Racers coming out? Sounds like fun on a bun. On a side note; My friends and I used to be really into Tony Hawk games and would create skate parks and lines and try to out do one another and break certain scores. Lots of fun was had.
honestly, with user generated content i found lbp to be soooo overwhelming.
That's where it falls short. Hopefully other games will learn from the mistake of having such an overwhelming array of capabilities just be laid down in front of you with no hint as to where to go.
The level editor in Far Cry was amazing.
it was good but it was a bit to in-depth, I felt overwhelmed
Overwhelming? That was the simplest, most dumbed down level creator I've ever used.
are we considering creating a character as user generated content? I would think user content is something the USER CREATES and i don't think making a avatar look the way you kinda want would count. Couple of the games on the list don't have any USER CREATED content at all! very strange!
I agree that some stuff on the list is loosely "user created." The ones that truly are created by the players are Spore, LBP, Mod Nation, and any games where you create maps.
No Unreal Tournament... WTF
And for all the hype lbp recieved too...
Spore was fun until EA cracked down on all the penis creatures. Lol.
I kinda wish this was a console only list, seeing as that's where the real achievements in user content are made. PC just makes things too simple. Still, it is a good list.
Excuse me? "that's where the real achievements in user content are made" I can't wrap my head around that. When you can literally design items and characters from scratch on PC... When you have something like CS which started as a mod and went on to become one of the most popular PC games ever made... These are things which haven't been done and likely can't be done on consoles. How is near limitless PC modding "too simple" compared to some level editor in a console game? @Panda below: "Tony has no idea what he's talking about." Ha. I'm not sure if that's a typo or genuine swipe at me.
Agreed. Tony has no idea what he's talking about.
Play Create Share Only on the AAAAStation 3
Scribblenauts as well? There's a difference between d*cking around with a game's environment and controls and creating actual content. Also, don't see how ModRacers beats LBP. ModRacers is racing greatness, but LBP has a lot of gameplay potential that's been shown in tons of stages created to mimic other games that aren't anything like your typical platformer.
i am wondering how did Mod nation beat out lbp lol
cool list, Little Big Planet's user creation mode is awesome, it really makes me consider buying a PS3.
Am I the only one who knows about Solider of Fortune II: Double Helix? That game had more mods online than most games to-date. Good article by the way, I can't say I disagree with your options seeing as I'm one of those people depending on developers to literary spoon-feed me with action and difficulty.
