List fail.

Also have to scratch my head at Paper Mario, or are they just talking about general low points in a franchise. Which still has me wondering at Paper Mario.

despair2824d ago

he's talking about the Super Paper Mario that was on the Wii, not the really amazing Paper Mario for N64, also I really didn't like Super Mario Sunshine either, forget the premise I just didn't like the core gameplay.

Was sunshine really that bad? I remember having hours of fun with the game when I 1st got my Gamecube and the graphics were really good for a Gamecube game. Same thing for WindWaker.

despair2824d ago (Edited 2824d ago )

great graphics but for some reason the controls just didn't feel right. Maybe its just me though.

This lsit completely fails! And I don't usually call fails easily but seeing good suff like I could not call it:

- Call of Duty: World at War.
- The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (for god's sake, this game is brilliant!)
- Super Mario Sunshine

I know Mario Sunshine had a tough follow up - Super Mario 64. 64 is still one of the best games of all time and the abr was raised really high but Sunshine is a pretty good paltformer on its own and doesn't get the right treatment.

The Paper Mario entry was directed towards the Paper Mario series within itself, not the Mario franchise.

Bobbykotickrulesz2824d ago

Dude Paper Mario was fucking awesome.

Mr Exclusive2824d ago (Edited 2824d ago )

List is total fail

Ones i agree with are

-Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days
-Banjo Kazooie

The rest is wrong.

FFX-2 is regarded as having the best battle system in the series
I liked GH5 despite the cash in
[email protected] was awesome and was much better than Modern Warfare 2
Zelda WW is loved by many
Super Mario Sunshine is awesome
Paper Mario was awesome

despair2824d ago

firstly FFX-2 battle system was the only reason I played that game more than 30 mins, it was horrible as a game otherwise.

Its the Paper Mario for Wii, didn't you read the article? He said Paper Mario for N64 was the perfect lead from Super Mario RPG and then the Wii version was a shell of that game.

Wind Waker was too whimsical for my taste but it was a good game, World at War was good but great kind of a throwaway for me(SP wise).

GH5 yea more guitar hero.. and see my comment above on Sunshine.

BannedForNineYears2823d ago

AGHHHHHHHHH, agreed, Despair.
Stewfew, Mr. Exclusive. >:[
FF10-2 was terrible! I was determined on beating it a few months ago......But I just couldn't take it. :|

VandimionX2823d ago

FFX-2 was a pretty good game, but it's battle system was godly. Everyone would've praised that game had it used "Job Spheres" instead of "Dress Spheres." I think people were too homophobic to enjoy it, maybe even on a subconscious was simply too girly for everyone.

Unicron2824d ago

Wind Waker is amazing.

FFX-2 had a great, great combat system despite the lighter plot tone.

Nihilism2824d ago

If you could ignore the uber feminine aspects of FFX-2, it was a great game.

Other than that one I disagree with almost everything on the list.

Guess some people just hate games :S, I bet author is unwrapping COD:B.O and MOH right now, keeping it real original...

JD_Shadow2823d ago

I enjoyed FFX2 (which I keep calling FF "EX" 2 instead of 10-2, for some odd reason). The battle system was fast paced and enjoyable, yet simple and to the point though deep, and the story, though lighter in tone, made sense and was intriguing with all the factions that they made throughout the story.

Mystic Quest, on the other hand...
