UC2, RDR, SFII and HL2 definitely deserve their spots. SMG2 should also b der...

yeh Half Life truly defined the FPS but unfortunately HL2 is just so great it dwarfs the Gold standard of HL1.

Street Fighter 2 most definitely one of the greatest sequels ever and responsible for like 5 million Super Nintendo being sold and 5 million Sega Genesis being traded in.

Uncharted 2 totally blew every console game out the water.

I'm upset that they forgot GTA3 and it's Sandbox format. GTA and GTa2 were pretty much the same game but GTA3 took video games to a whole new level of open world, living city, prostitute killing mayhem. GTA3 created the "living World" GTA3 should be on this list instead of MK2

Well if you look at it that way, they forgot a lot of good games and instead placed games like Assassin's Creed II. GTA3, Super Mario Bros 3 and Resident Evil 4 just to name a few..

sonic 2, after burner 2, shenmue 2, halo 2, fatal fury 2, samurai showdown 2, art of fighting 2, the list goes on and on........

Honestly, if the first game is good, it makes it hard to top but it happens. A 3peate... lots of pressure there.

Games and movies share many similarities. Wrath of Kahn is still the best in the original star trek movie series.

i agree that resident evil 4 was a good game but it took the RE series in the wrong direction and landed it in an early grave

No, Resident Evil 5 took the series in wrong direction. A horror game in africa... great!! Atleast RE4 had atmosphere, and awesome boss battles, compared to RE5.

Gears 2, halo 3 , halo odst , gta 4, crackdown 2, ohh wait-

Ps. The talon stands for .....

where's MGS2:sons of liberty? Or this is only for nextgen games only?

antz11042893d ago

I thought that MGS was a superior sequel from the old school more so than MGS to Sons of Liberty

ATi_Elite2893d ago

Dam, I totally forgot, thanks! Metal Gear Solid should be like #1 as it was a sequel to Metal Gear and it brought about Tactical espionage game play.

bubbles for you.
