MCV: UK national newspaper The Independent has put together a list of what it believes are the top 50 best games available today.
God I hate Wii Sports. When I got my Wii on release day - Zelda: TP got delayed in the post. I had to spend all weekend with that sh1tty sports game before Zelda arrived on monday. Actually "all" weekend is a huge exageration - I actually mean 60 minutes. When I realised that motion wasn't as good as it looked on the adverts I packed away the game and got on with something else. Still Wii Sports was a laugh the few times I got it out to play with drunk friends. It's like a game of Buzz or Pictionary.
Did anyone else notice Diablo II sitting near the bottom of the list? I would definitely have put Uncharted on it somewhere...
Seems like a popularity contest instead of the best games. Whatever. I agree with a lot of those.
And Xbox 360 dominates again. 360: Braid Halo 3 Gears of War Rez HD Bioshock(GOTY on 360) Project Gotham Racing 4 Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Forza Motorsport 2 The Orange Box(The true good version) Mass Effect Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars Uno Lost Odyssey Space Invaders Extreme Puzzle Quest These are all AAA title's...Exclusive to the Xbox 360. PS#3: Metal Gear Solid 4 Gran Turismo 5: prologue(not even a 80% on Metacritic lol) This doesn't even come close to showing the ridiculous games advantage the XBox 360 has over the PS3...but does give an idea. Xbox 360: The console for real games that want to play the best shooters, RPG's(or should I say ONLY RPG's) and every other category. Online. Xbox 360 rules this generation.
"Move along kiddie poo, Xbox 360 is all but dead. PS3 has already won...: ) Seriously. Xbox 360 is going to get smoked and the next Xbox is coming in dead last also. PS3 will be out well beyond the next Xbox ....pass the 360 well before the next Xbox and PS4 will sedtory the next Xbox in sales."
I'm surprised they thought Lost Odyssey was in when Uncharted and things like Ratchet and Clank:FTOD were not. Glaring misses...and games like pes 2009, Buzz quiz and singstar made it in as well. Eve online over WOW? feel free to agree with the list... Uno and tetris are in as well...Over crackdown? hmm...
50 most popular games on the market....not the best
I would not even use the word 'most'...Some pretty big games are not on the list..and some haven['t even had a chance to be out...
isn't even out yet therefor it's not on the market. How can they rate a game as one of the best if they haven't even played it yet? Oh, well Fallout 3 will be great I'm sure.
good point. very good point. bubbles are coming your way..
These lists never end well...
The best overall game available at the moment... Still fresh and kind of new, perfects the gameplay, replay value, online and the most polished game this gen as far as overall presentation (including graphics, artistic design, music, acting) Brilliant game
um no fallout 3 is NOT one of the 50 best games on the market... because it did not even come OUT YET ... wtf is with all these damn n4g articles in the last like 3 days saying fallout 3 is in the top 3 best games of all time .. and best games on the market and sh*t... r they ALL retarded? or what ... fallout 3 is not coming out until the last week October .. so everyone making best games of all time/ best games on the market list GET OVER IT!!! fine then i can make my own list of the best games ever - Resistance 2 - Gears of War 2 - LittleBigPlanet - Fable 2 ^u kno why those r on the list... because they did not come out yet (that list of games was sarcasm btw)
