Is this even news? Halo Reach has already set records as it passed the 2 mil mark in preorders its on track with mw2 and its only an exclusive. Tip of the hat to Bungie.

No doubt it'll be one of the biggest launches this year.

The front page of n4g is going to be full of sale numbers come this Tuesday for a couple of weeks lol

Quote from article: "Guinness World Records has already recognised the Halo trilogy – the prequel to Reach – as the biggest video game franchise to date". These kind of statements are so full of hyperbole. I checked out the Guinness website and this was decided by voting, not actual sales. Why did Guinness use voting when you'd think sales wouldn't be that hard to tally up? Guinness is usually more reliable than that and use actual figures to back up their claims (voting systems are so easy to manipulate with multiple votes and other methods). And, based on sales, Mario is the best selling franchise of all time (Halo is at 36).

this game will sell very well because it's the last installment of an epic series known as Halo. It will break records regardless of a 20$ gift card. What is a 20$ gift card compared to 35million potential ps3 buyers that the CoD series gets?? Give credit where it's due and and stop trying to spin shit around.

How'd fallout not make the list. Atleast over cyberpunk, tales , and halo. Fallout been around since what 96 98 and has 5 6 games into it. It's full of lore when you play it. I'd even add star ocean to a point.

robtion267d ago

Agree Fallout should be on there.

MadLad267d ago

And somehow Planescape Torment doesn't even make the list.

Crows90267d ago

Hollow knight surpasses these.

shinoff2183267d ago

In lore? I must be missing something

Crows90267d ago (Edited 267d ago )

Yes in lore. Easily missed... absolutely. Never played a game that had me loving the world and lore behind it as much as that one. Most of course wouldn't be able to experience it since it is a more difficult game.

DarXyde267d ago

I can't speak for all titles on this list, but by the time you get to Dark Souls III, the lore is a bloody tapestry of intricacy

Crows90267d ago

Played them all. Im not saying the games on the list dont have good lore...I just think hollow knight had more lore that is hidden but present and more easily explored and accessed. The souls games have tremendous lore but theyre mostly hidden and stay that way unless you look for it and research it. The lore is not very accessible.

DarXyde267d ago


I think that's a somewhat fair assessment. For me, the Souls games are less upfront about the lore, but it does invite your fascination through NPCs, items, locations, bosses, etc. There's this kind of natural progression where the picture becomes just clear enough by doing the essential tasks, but it really makes you want to explore every inch of the world.

TheColbertinator267d ago

Suikoden and Legend of Heroes also have massive lore setups.

agent13267d ago

narration is more important than lore i'd rather watch the story and characters in a more cinematic way instead of searching for notes and stuff that's why i love sony exclusive games like uncharted and gow and hate from software games

The article was top ten lore in video games. I think they did a bad job picking games out. I know what you mean though. I just like a variety of games and genres.
