Top 5 games with a prominent sci-fi element
I wanna get round to playing Outcast sometime.
loool unknown fail playstation site missing out Halo , and I am sure Half Life is consider sci fi too. Where are those too?
Maybe if it was a "Top 20" list they would be in there. lol I kid But seriously though, Halo is not an obligatory choice. There are other worthy games out there. IMO Metal Gear would be a good choice, unless your definition of "sci-fi" is future/armored soldier/aliens. Even though I disagree with their #1 pick, I am able to realize this is an "opinion piece".
Mass Effect #1 ? Realy?
No Halo? lolwut
Halo was #7. Uhhh yeah I don't really know that for sure. I do know that a top five list, by definition, can only hold five games. As good as Halo might be (never played it myself so I don't know) the authors of this article felt it wasn't as good as the games that made the list. Opinions aren't objective facts. If you don't like this list, make your own. It's not that hard.
Right. Whether you like the series or not, you have to acknowledge its presence.
Ass creed? really? someone hasn't played a lot of sci-fi games.
With this comment, you're either expressing your pinion of the Assassin's Creed franchise, or your perception of what science fiction is. If it's the former, then you're not really keen on Assassin's Creed. That's fine, I'm not keen on spots games. We all have our opinions. Yours is no more or less valid than mine. If it's the latter, then you're basing your comment on a flawed assumption of what science fiction really is. It's not always about flying around in outer space and shooting f### ugly monsters with laser guns. X-men is no less sci-fi than Star Trek. What makes sci-fi sci-fi is the introduction of something, anything, that, while it might be theoretically plausible, is practically impossible with current science. It's often called speculative fiction because the story uses this new element as a starting point. In AC it's genetic memory and the ability to access those memories through the Animus. It was Mutation in the X-men franchise, and invisibility in Hollow Man. This kind of science fiction doesn't need to be set in space. It doesn't even need to be set in the far future. It just needs some kind of unusual new element that plays a central role in the story. Hope this helps. I'm gonna stop now before I make myself look even more like a total nerd.
Whoa.... In that case pong is a better sci-fi game than ass creed. Joking Of course it's an opinion. I just think that Assasin's Creed is an overated, overmilked franchise. But then most people despise the games I like. I don't need an education in "SF" I was a complete nerd before you were born. Before video games existed and all there was were books and comics. Unless you're in your 50s? PM me if you want to continue "SF" talk.
I think the Assassin's Creed franchise is fantastic I would have added Timesplitters 2, Future Perfect, the franchise in general to the list
Good list, glad there is no halo. Halo is just a mindless shooter hell the novels are better than the game itself. Half Life or zone of the enders....
There's actually great storytelling within its world.
But not so much within the games, hence why he said "hell the novels are better than the game itself." Also, I think I would agree with ZoE being on this list, if it were my list. Which it obviously is not.
Deus ex HL2 Timesplitters: future perfect can't remember more
I used to care about Mass Effect series just like you, then I took an arrow to the knee.
Holy shit Outcast ! What a game man..
i love mass effect1 also and cant stand what they did with me2
Mass Effect 1 was mediocre. KOTOR -> ME It's a scientifically proven fact.
Assassins creed? wut. Where is timesplitters 2 and Knights of the old republic?
