Top Ten Games of 2006

2006 was the year that gave the world the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, and the first round of games that pushed the boundaries of what gamers thought were possible. 'Okami' once again proved that video games are a viable form of art while 'Gears of War' and 'The Elder Scrolls IV' pushed graphical processing to the very limit.

Or, that's how it seemed at the time.

With 2009 just around the corner, Binge Gamer is on the final stretch towards their top ten games of 2008 by looking back at the ten best games of 2006.

Okami is hands down the best game of 2006 , can't believe this dude put it way down at #7..

Oblivion
Gears 1
Zelda: TP

was also good..

FF12 should have been on that list also...

Danja5647d ago

that's exactly what I was saying also..

but he also puts Marvel: Ultimate Alliance at #3 ahead of both Zelda and Okami....lol...

Lucreto5647d ago

Okami was the game that surprised me and it is my favourite game of all time.

It unseated Suikoden 2 and put it into the second spot.

Hot_tea5647d ago

For me it blew them all away that year. Not as ground breaking as doom, but still a better game. One of the greatest games ever made let alone of 93. They failed here.

If this is true, I hope it leads to Morrowind getting remade next.

-Foxtrot55d ago

I thought they’d go for Morrowind first to be honest but this is a welcoming surprise to tide us over before ES6

TheColbertinator55d ago

Well said. Exactly my thoughts too.

Tedakin55d ago

Unreal Engine isn't efficient for open world games, so I question the reliability of this story.

isarai55d ago

Yeah, 1st thing that came to my mind too, although i CAN see it being likely for ease if use, but it's not going to run very well if so

Tacoboto55d ago (Edited 55d ago )

I'd wonder if it would just be exploiting Unreal for graphics but the underlying engine/logic is still the original framework.

Like how we had the graphical remakes of Halo Anniversary, Tomb Raider I-III, and Demon's Souls.

Could also end up a disaster like the GTA Trilogy

mkis00755d ago

I have heard that too but even if it's modified isnt arkham knight UE?

Fragslayer54d ago

"remake will run both an Unreal Engine 5 project and the old Oblivion project. For instance, new graphics are rendered in the Unreal Engine 5 project, but most of the gameplay and physics are still done on the original Oblivion engine"

So with this logic it'll run just fine using UE5 tool sets on top of Gamebryo's engine or maybe even Creation Engine, who knows.

Hopefully modders can fix the aged combart in this game if this is true. Enemies leveling up with you broke and defeated the whole purpose of leveling up.

Fragslayer54d ago

Yeah it could use some tuning for sure hence the need for a Remake not a Remaster. I'm surprised it's even a conversation within them group which makes me skeptical it's Oblivion. I wouldn't say they shouldn't level up at all though maybe just a leave them a couple levels behind to appease the masses.

Saints Row - Where it All Began

Saints Row made its debut nearly 20 years ago, and while the game has aged its still worth playing on modern consoles.

Back when games had balls. Now they still have balls, but also lipstick and a dress.

kevco3397d ago

Or an angry purple streak in their hair to demonstrate they're a rebel.

SimpleSlave96d ago

And they claimed this place was one of the outhouses for Gamers™ and gamerGate Incels. Pfft! But look at bangerBro99's amazing display of Homo-eroticism. How far we've come.

So proud of you, bud. Now you go grab them balls and have all the fun. 👍

Outstanding!

PhillyDonJawn96d ago

They should remaster the first 2.

1nsomniac96d ago

I think the first one was the best in the series by a long, long way!

Demetrius96d ago

🥲🥲 someone needs to buy this ip and watch dogs, give those franchises a proper treatment sheesh

TheColbertinator96d ago

First 3 games were great. Then 4, Gat out of Hell and the Reboot were flimsy in comparison. Aliens, demons and a weak reboot in terms of intensity made the games forgettable.

Profchaos96d ago (Edited 96d ago )

But even 3 ventured into rediculas territory with zombies and stag. Zombies in 3 to me was just a hey you know what's popular zombies let's do that
