why did they put the GTA franchise first? well than in that case the whole Metal Gear franchise should be first
They picked mgs4 over mgs3 =/
playstation X dude as much as i love Metal Gear Solid i need to say is that, indeed, 3 was awsome all MGSs are but, they all have the pros n cons, Metal Gear 4 was almost full of epic momments, but, instead of that, the bosses of MGS3 are better (on my opinion) i preffer MGS3 bosses over 4, but, the story on 4, just, .. woa. psh.. i remember my arm almost falling apart while pressing the button like a million times on the microwave scene, dam! my arm remember that time too!
I have very little issues regarding that list except GTA, sure it's fun, but man it's nothing compared to games such as Star Control 2. I am not saying GTA's aren't fun, I can't even remember how much time I've spend messing with GTA on my PSP but there's games with better story, greater immersion, better gameplay. Sure most of who'm are either old or sequels they shouldn't be excluded. You should all download the ur-quan masters it's free and serious fun.
There is Halo though. LMAO, weak list. Edit: Why is KOTOR even on that list? I'm guessing this list was made by a very young gamer or an Xbox fanboy or ex-pc gamer as Mario is too low, there's no Mario 64 or Mario Galaxy or Mario 3 or whatever, no Zelda. Hell, very few Nintendo games made that list. I would put Shadow of the Colossus or ICO before Halo anyday, same with all the Nintendo games. Hell, I'd put Gears of War before Halo even if it's Killswitch with better graphics.
Well this list is kinda odd. I'm glad the list didn't default to Mario being number 1 like every other list of this type seems to do however I really don't think GTA deserves the number 1 spot. Sure the series is pretty good but GTAIV was a massive let down in alot of peoples eyes. I honestly think there are alot of games and franchises out there that are better for the number 1 spot.
I know it's just your opinion but don't let GTA 4 cloud your judgement, all the GTA3 engined games were amazing imho. I can't really agree or disagree with the list, like the man said there are so many games that could've been on the list. I would put HL2 higher up though and the GOW games would be number 1 on my list.
Im surprised LoZ: OoT didnt make the list.. Seems kinda odd
Zelda Oot would be my number one hands down. This list automatically fails
"Why is KOTOR even on that list?" To say nothing of whether I think it's one of the "greatest games ever made" it is a quality game. But I think it's obvious there's not much gaming experience at play in the writer's opinions. But at least all the games on the list are good. Even if I don't like some.
take off Halo, add Ocarina of Time, rearrange the top 3 and then this list would be decent, not good but decent at least
I thought this list was refreshing. I mean, when I read the title I already had a list of five games that would probably be on it but I was plesently surprised by some of their choices. Come on, doesn't EVERY best games list have Zelda number one? That just seems boring to me. In no particular order (possibly best list ever?): - LBP - Halo 3 - MGS1 - Twisted Metal Black - GTA: San Andreas - Pokemon Gold (you all were thinking it, too) - Super Mario World - Rock Band - Dark Cloud 2 - Super Smash Bros. Brawl @ Cookie Yeah, they're such Xbox fanboys that they put two Sony franchises above any XBox one just to mess with you.
I guess the article already states that: "Please do note that its impossible to list each and every game. There will be many games that you may or may not agree with us in this list. So please sit back and enjoy. And yeah, dont forget to list your games in the comments section below."
well i guess it depends on the author.
nice way to finish off the list
well I don't know whether we covered everything or not! But i guess thats was a nice list and i guess everyone shud agree with the majority of the games there.
GOW and at least one MGS game were all I needed to see. Without them this list ould have failed.
Yeah, but MGS4? Of all the metal gear solids I think I'd put that last on my list (of 1-4). The whole list seemed a bit goofy to me. They were all good games, but many are far from the best. Halo franchise for one, out scoring Super Mario World, and theres no mention of any zelda game. Theres no Metroid... Ah well, I guess it's just opinions anyway.
GTA? Hmm... I like the top 5 but GTA should be a bit higher. Glad to see the legendary MGS4 on there.
A bit higher? Umm, GTA was number one. . .
hey bots wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeers halo?
Which platform a game is found on has little to no baring on weather or not a game has potential to be great.
mgs 4 #3 , not a bad list in my opinion mgs 4 should be #1
You can't argue that GTA series was probably one of the most successful game franchises in history, even if it wasn't everyone's cup of tea. I'm surprised that The Sims series, Madden or Fifa series, or Gran Turismo series aren't on that list somewhere. Whether you like it or not, you can't deny how popular they were.
jjohan35: i agree with u on that! But it was not possible to include all of them
Halo was featured in the first article.
You can't possibly take all the amazings games ever made and narrow them down into a top 10 list. It's just impossible. I agree that these are all excellent games, but there are TONS more great ones out there as well.
Finally a list that doesn't automatically put Mario and Zelda at the top. I personally think it's a good list however it should be the MGS entire franchise and not just MGS4. Obviously these lists will never please everyone but you can't deny the quality of the top 5 here.
You can please some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but never all of the people all of the time. Some wise man once said. lol.
i would have golden eye on N64 in the number 1 spot
Where is Chrono Trigger or even a Zelda game?
Not exactly "teh WORST LIST EVERZ!!!1!" but I do agree with your point on there being no Zelda game. I was really expecting to see Ocarina of Time.
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic definitely deserves to be named on the best games ever. If you don't like Star Wars, it is understandable, but the Kotor story was great, the characters had a lot of depth to them, and the scope of the game, for its time, was fantastically large. When Bioware decides to make Kotor 3, I will be their biggest cheerleader.
I think this is a Great list. I don't think there is anyone out there that would fully agree %100 with this list. but i bet if the majority of games made a top 25 list they would have 9 outa 10 of those games on there.
i kinda agree with the list but switch gta with LOZ OoT or the entire mario series and its perfect
Kratos won't be pleased :/
Maybe you missed it but God of war is on there
Guess i scrolled down the page too quickly :p
how could you miss the 2nd spot?
Another pathetic noob blogger. How can you make an ever(!) list without street fighter 2 and pacman? Seriously, WTF?
Can't have a Top 10 without Diablo II or Starcraft.
That is all.
