Vote for the best gaming prequel of all time.

The recently-revealed God of War: Ascension proves that prequels will continue to be an attractive way for developers to extend the life of a series without having to worry about the consequences and story concerns that come with making a sequel. Still, this announcement made us wonder which release is the greatest prequel in gaming history.

Well, we thought we’d find out once and for all. Below is a poll containing over 20 titles nominated by the staff of GamesBeat and Bitmob and our followers on Facebook and Twitter.

MGS3. None can compete with Big Boss.

I was all ready to come in here and say "everyone shut up, the answer is Snake Eater." and I got beaten to the punch!

But seriously, it's MGS3. One of my favorites OF ALL TIME.

Hey the list didn't have STALKER Clear Sky....

but once i saw "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" it really didn't matter what was on the list!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time best prequel ever and one of the FINEST games EVER made!

Go play it!!!

Sorry, but the guys from LoadingReadyRun in Checkpoint said it best:

"Speedrunner Cosmo has beaten Ocarina of Time in under 23 minutes, using a newly discovered glitch that allows players to bypass almost the entire game. This means it's finally possible to beat Ocarina of Time before the nostalgia wears off."

Part of the reason I brought MGS HD collection was so I can replay MGS3. I'm glad the HD collection is available on the 360 b/c I would of been screwed.

davidfca1493d ago

Well, it's better than MGS2 and MGS4. I will give it that.

BISHOP-BRASIL1493d ago

Gameplay wise, MGS4 evolved a lot from MGS3. But story wise I agree with you.

MGS2 is not even up to comparison, it wasn't that good to start with...

Solid_Snake371492d ago

No the story was very good, you just didn't like playing as raiden

BISHOP-BRASIL1490d ago

Oh, you know what I liked or not better than myself... Damn you psycho mantis powered guy, stop reading my memory card!

Seriously now, I never said that the story was the problem anyway, I just pointed at the story matter comparing MGS4 and MGS3.

But yes, I found the story pace much less engaging in MGS2 than in MGS1 or MGS3. That said, it's not just this, yes I hated playing as Raiden too, but there were more stuff there I don't like as much as I did the rest of the series. It's my opinion, if you don't like it, sue me.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time... surprised anyone?

Sorry A Link to the Past, it really was a tough choice.

NukaCola1491d ago

Its kind of hard to graph the Zelda series though. In theory it is on a time line that could of been split, or who knows what. I think there is a time continuum that takes place around the Temple of Time in Ocarina that separates the story of the Legend of Zelda into 3 realms.

I personally think it's brilliant though.

And no doubt Ocarina is a part of the past. I believe it's a bit into the lineage but still before the majority of Zelda titles.

From the Beginning you Know the End
Nuff said.

MysticStrummer1493d ago

I'm not sure Ascension is a prequel. If Kratos travels back in time and saves his family, as some have speculated based on what's actually said in the reveal video, then it's not a prequel. Anyway, MGS3 gets my vote.

suicidalblues1493d ago

Sony confirmed it to be a prequel the other day.

I'm really looking forward to what they come up with for his beginnings.
