I think HaloCE out of Halo 1, and 2 is still the best Halo game. I have two copies of Halo, and Halo 2, and still play Halo from time to time. I love the custom maps on the pc version espicially the Zelda map. I do love Halo 3, but not the story, since I haven't beaten it, but the multiplayer is still awesome for a lan party, and CTF is my favorite mode. I can give props to Bungie, but sadly can't afford a 360 right now, and Halo:Reach looks, and sounds amazing.

Halo 1 is hands down still the best in the series. If they remade that or if Xbox LIVE was out back then then it would definitely without a doubt be the best Halo ever made. The story was just too amazing out of the three and the multiplayer was a blast. Loved all the maps too.

I agree with the top 5 (not sure I agree with the order, but I agree with all 5 of them being in the top 5)... but I'm surprised that Final Fantasy X wasn't somewhere in the top 10. I sure as hell hope they put Jet Set Radio Future in the 2002 top 10!

I think they might consider FFX for 2002. It was released December 2001 in NA and 2002 in all other regions except Japan obviously, and Japan got FFX International 2002 too. The game is too good not to make a top 10 list for that year, though I do agree the list has good games

@Blaze if MS does that it will be without a doubt awesome, and they could add achievements too, I mean if they really wanted to.

Agreed. Halo 1 is THE BEST FPS campaign I've ever played on a console. I loved the different variety of environments. The Snow level was AWESOME and the Silent Cartographer level was EPIC.

Darkstorn3126d ago

Ah, someone who remembers JSRF. Man I loved that game...must have sunk 50 hours into it over the years.

On topic, this is a pretty good list.

mikeslemonade3126d ago

Gran Turismo 3 should be #2 or #3.

Cajun Chicken3126d ago

The original Jet Set Radio was far superior. You actually painted the graffiti instead of painting a button.

xabmol3126d ago

To me it's like, the first halo had the best SP and its been going down hill with every new game, while the MP has been getting better and better.

IMHO If Bungie can't bring back the Halo 1 SP feel with Reach, they should just make Halo MP only.

I still have Halo 1 & 2 on my pc and I have gone back and played 1 waaaay more than 2.

Guido3126d ago

Agreed. This makes me wonder how many kids here got into the gaming in 2001 and forget about the original JSR. As for the list, d*mn! Sony owned 2001. It was years like these that made the PS2 what it is today.

callahan093126d ago

I played the original, but I didn't enjoy it as much. It was so much smaller, the level designs weren't as ridiculously cool (the roller coaster level in JSRF is incredible), and the soundtrack wasn't as good. Plus, I found the graffiti in the original to be kind of a pain to get accurate, whereas it was simple in JSRF. The two games had different focuses. JSRF is more of a skating game than a graffiti game, but I liked that about it.

There are a lot of great games on that list and most do belong there without a doubt, but so does J&D.

To be honest, I have never liked SSB. EVER. Just too simple a game and a cash in of all the Nintendo franchises. It's like that DBZ Budokai game but Nintendo'ed and with even less moves. Terrible fighting game, ok party game.

So replace SSBM with J&D:TPL and that would be a hell of a list.

Oh, and ICO should be #2. xP

xabmol3126d ago

Except to use the bathroom and grab somthin to eat real quick. People were worried about me.

Great game! lol


The all mighty Halo is a legend!

and after 9+ years of release it still shows of its greatness!

Heartbroken-Menace3126d ago

no doubt, hopefully Halo: Reach will bring the franchise back to the quality of the first installment.

Close_Second3126d ago

...from the second level onward however, I hated the very last level where they imposed a time limit for you to drive the warthog to safety. The warthog itself was probably the worst thing about the game. It looked good but the physics and controls were rubbish.

Oh yes, Halo's first level (aboard the ship) was dull and repetitive.

Cajun Chicken3126d ago

You gotta be kidding. The finale was awesome. As is Halo 3's homage.

xabmol3126d ago (Edited 3126d ago )

I liked the way the warthog handled.

And saying that the first level was dull is like complaning about the intro song on a great CD. Sheesh...
