Video games come in a wide variety of styles. Some are single players, some are multiplayer, and others have elements of both. One of the things that draw in many gamers is the multiplayer aspect of games.
Modern Warfare 3? Are you having a laugh? Why is CoD4 not in it's place?
Yu Yu Hakusho Makyoutohissen for the Mega Drive comes to mind
The author is clearly doing a bit of Activision butt kissing in the hopes of being given some schwag or early review consideration in the future. There is no chance in hell MW3 belongs anywhere within a mile of an "all time" list. Sorry. People can have their opinions, but this is pushing the bounds of reason.
i know i am going to get spammed for this comment but i like MW3 over MW (COD4).
Why do you like MW3? Because it's CoD4+MW2? Thats bad! CoD4 will always be the best CoD multiplayer
buddy i dont offend you but...i just love the fast paced gameplay in MW3 and especially the new perks and killstreaks. Also, there aren't as much camping spots as prevalent in MW2. I know that MW3 is by NO means perfect multiplayer game, but i enjoy playing it everyday on PSN.
"i just love the fast paced gameplay in MW3" As opposed to what? The slow paced gameplay in CoD4? Have you played much CoD4? It's fast. "there aren't as much camping spots as prevalent in MW2." Are you joking? MW3 is the campiest of them all. So many nooks and crannies to hide behind in these poorly designed maps. All I see is fools camping with their Type 95's waiting for someone to walk buy. It's garbage. MW3's maps are nothing but over blown boxes with corners everywhere. Atleast in the past CoD's the maps had flow to them.
Agreed with above, I got a chance to play MW3 this weekend, borrowed a copy, and I’m quite dissapointed to say the least. It really is like a reskined MW2, the menus are the same, the emblems/titles are almost the same and/or made more horrible than in MW2. Played campaign(veteran), it’s ok, but the enemies are still dumb aimboting POS. Spec-ops also seemed like a letdown, didn’t have the chance to go trough all of them, but they were basically run’n’shoot, that’s it, in MW2 you had to man turrets on choppers, AC-130 (that was included, but still lacked), etc., those missions had great diversity, but not in MW3. Survival wasn’t bad, split-screen coop great, split-screen MP is a great bonus. MP overall is 1:1 like MW2, just made even more noob friendly, since now you can earn killstreaks (i.e. pointstreaks) even if you die. And the maps were ‘effin horrid, they all seemed like a freakin’ chessboard, kill one guy in front of you and you are bound to get shot in the back or side of your head a second later. I have to constantly rotate 360, omg. /rant EDIT: OT - CS 1.6, TF2(PC), COD4(PS3) for me.
I feel with the new modes, including everything in spec ops, and the new killstreak chains MW3 multi is the best in the series. The maps are solid and the gun choices aren't as bad as previous installments. But if MW3 made the list I think Halo Reach should have made it, that multi was pretty great.
I agree, MW3 is fun and more balanced than any other COD game.
Is today Opposite Day?
yes. it is indeed Opposite Day. I mean it's not Opposite Day. I mean...
That's fine if you like it but to me, it's probably one of the worst out of the series. Part of it is due to the extremely bad maps. I actually miss maps from MW2 like quarry. The maps in MW3 are just so extremely small and just have so many camping spots.
Mario Kart 64 is a great multiplayer game
The original Halo and Goldeneye would also come before MW3. WoW also would come before MW3. I'm glad they included counter strike though. Hate that they're referring to the xbox one that was released in 2004 and not the original PC one.
Gotta add Quake 2 as well. And BF1942. There are a LOT of games that come before MW3.
My personal list Halo 2 Golden eye 007 (n64) battlefield 3 Call of duty 4 and world at war assasins creed brotherhood Test drive unlimited uncharted 3 R6V2 Red dead redemption little big planet
you should add counter strike oh and time splitters
i forgot about those :) they are also very good
Counter Strike, etc. @below, agree and a bubble for the straw hat avatar. Edit: At least he included CS and TF2, but that doesn't make up for including MW3 and not including the (IMO) much better Battlefield games. also, he lost me when referring to COD, "..this game has already broken records..with top notch graphics.." decent list though I guess.
quake 2-3 and unreal tournament should be there too
well its kz2 for me just fn love that game
People still play KZ2?, i gave up on KZ3 a long time ago, KZ2 was my first and fav FPS, i would definitely buy it again if i can still get full lobbies on Raven Academy :P
I just hopped back into Killzone 2 last week! Played against bots to reacquaint myself with the controls. The game still holds up to today's games perfectly. That game is the reason I bought a PS3, and it is amazing!
yessss love mario kart 64. peach all the way!!!!
It's all about that MGO people.
Please mgo is just terrible. The stupid animation glitches were awful. A very average shooter that just happens to have mgs characters in it.
UT3. 16v16 bot matches. It had sooo many game types. Vehicle capture the flag was particularly epic in it. You've never really played Vehicle CTF until you've driven one of these. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... EDIT: WHoa I just realized one of the character voice actors is Grayson Hunt from Bulletstorm. I've noticed him in a few games lately, he's also in Transformers WfC
mw3 is a good game but mw1 is a classic
i loved mgo i wasnt the same as every thing else out at the time.and loved the playboy magi would throw on down and shoot poeple the f up
Socom II will always be one of my favourites.
duke nukem 3d on TEN
No Socom II, Phantasy Star Online or Rainbow 6 Vegas? Surely you jest.......
SOCOM II. Without a doubt the most strategic oriented multiplayer ever created. That game did stuff 6-8 years before anyone else did and it still tops games today in terms of "clan support". It's the reason GameBattles was started. It was a game that was all about teamwork, not just running around like most games today. It required you to have a mic, otherwise it was a death sentence. You only had one life, you'd better use it wisely otherwise you were stuck waiting for 5 minutes watching everyone else.
Warhawk!!! Hawks, tanks, jeeps, APC's, Dropships, Jet packs, turrets, huge maps, large scale, hundreds of ways to kill your enemy, high learning curve with a lot to master. My favorite multiplayer game I ever played.
Where is: Timesplitters 2 Crash Team Racing Mario Kart Super Smash Bros Melee, Brawl Bomberman games etc
Streets of Rage! Good times.
