WildandYoung's thread got me thinking about what I'd include in my own list, so I figured I'd make a thread of it. I'm only doing one entry per series, but will probably make note of other games in a series that I enjoyed.

Honorable Mentions

- Brutal Legend (Xbox 360)
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/83/BrutalLegendCover.jpg

Fun game even though it really couldn't make up its mind what genre it was. Amazing soundtrack, of course. The integration of metal into the game world was really cool. I'm still pissed at my friend for deleting my game file that had 100%. :flame:

-Gears of War (Xbox 360)
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/82/Gears_of_War.png

Probably the first game for the 360 that I was hyped for. Also, one of the only third person shooters I thoroughly enjoy. I liked that Gears of War was more than just a run-and-gun game. There was an elements of strategy whether it was luring a near indestructible Beserker out into the open or navigating lighted areas to avoid the certain death that darkness brought. Plus, the sight of your enemy being chainsawed in half was satisfying as all hell. The addition of horde mode in the second one was amazing too, but overall I have fonder memories with the original.

-Madness Interactive (Browser based)
http://bbsimg.ngfiles.com/1/12361000/ngbbs4620ff7b7b362.gif

Along with Mini Putt and Bullet Time Fighting, this is the reason I have no idea to use AutoCAD. I wasted an entire semester Freshman year of high school playing this in Tech Ed class. Madness Interactive is a flash game that is basically an addicting 2D sidescroller of stick figure murder madness. The story mode is short, but entertaining. The real fun is the experiment mode where you can control the flow of enemies, spawn weapons, use cheats and just fuck around to your heart's desire. I can't really explain it very well, so just go play it here (http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/118826) or the Halo version (http://www.4ugames.net/Games/426/Madness-Interactive-Halo-Slayer.htm).

-Fallout 3 (Xbox 360)
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/83/Fallout_3_cover_art.PNG

Fallout combines two things I love: A post-apocalyptic theme and an open world. Unfortunately, I lack the focus required for these type of games and end up wandering around aimlessly which is still loads of fun. I can't even begin to list all the fun shit to do in this game, but anything involving mini-nukes is sure to be a blast. In my opinion, this one is far superior to its successor, New Vegas.

Tekken 3 (Playstation)
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/f0/T3usposter.jpg

This was the first fighting game I ever played when I was probably about 7. I honestly can't remember too much about the game, but I remember playing it nonstop as a kid. This had some of the most unique characters in any fighting game with whatever the fuck Yoshimitsu is, the Jackie Chan ripoff (Law) and a goddamn giant panda to name a few. Eddy Gordo was always my shit though with his crazy half-break dancing fighting style.

25.) Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction (Xbox)

The game that really got me into open world, "sandbox" games. Just running around Korea, blowing up whatever the fuck you wanted was extremely fun, but the difficulty of keeping yourself neutral/in good favors with all the factions was the real challenge of the game that kept me playing. This was the first (and only?) game I ever experienced where the infinite ammo cheat meant that you could actual fire a continuous stream of ammo without reloading. Plus, Han Solo AND Indiana Jones as playable characters?! You can't beat that.

some cool picks so far, Madness is a shit load of fun, and so is Mercenaries, but seeing Fallout 3 so low makes me sad
never played more then minutes of GoW and have never played Brutal Legend, though I do feel like I kind of have to being a fan of video games and heavy metal lol

I never commented on the Honorable Mentions: Brutal Legend was great, anything I had to say about that game I said in Wild&Youngs thread. I never played Gears of War but wanted to, I don't have X-Box. I'll always remember that epic Mad World commercial. Tekken 3; was that the one on Playstation One? If it was, I loved that game too. And Fallout 3, great game. And yeah the New Vegas sequel had potential but was too bugged out for me to have fun. The Dunwich House in Fallout 3 (if that was what it was even called, that house in the far South-West corner) was fucking awesome. I just thought that game needed more. I plowed through it in about thirty-five hours and thought another twenty hours or so would've made it a little more fulfilling. But it got me through my last long spat of unemployment.

It was one of the ones on PS1. Tekken 1-3 were all released on PS1.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/33/ESPN_NFL_2K5.jpg

24.) ESPN NFL 2K5 (Xbox)

The ESPN series of sports games were the be all end all of sports games for me and this one was the best. The gameplay was smooth and less in-depth than Madden. I like that. I don't need 300 different plays just to figure out that I'm gonna run a Hail Mary every time. Unfortunately, EA bought the exclusive rights for games from the NFL after this was released for its Madden series, officially killing this series.

Other notable titles in this series: ESPN NFL 2K4, EPSN MLB 2K4, ESPN NBA 2K5.

Man, I think I'm gonna unofficially add another honorable mention. Minecraft definitely deserves to be on this list somewhere.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b0/Mass_Effect_3_Game_Cover.jpg
23.) Mass Effect 3 (Xbox 360)

Oh man, this is gonna piss people off! Yeah, yeah, it's too low, whatever, but the reason is because it's only here at all because of the multiplayer. Mass Effect's story is too slow paced and takes too long to get going for my tastes. :ass: Apologies to AdamClark.

Anyway, the multiplayer is insanely fun. I recall many a night with my roommate and a couple of our friends cramming four TVs in our living room and playing for like twelve hours straight. Despite EA's constant buffoonery and the number of bugs, it's a great experience and I'm glad that they kept adding more and more DLC maps and characters. The Human Vanguard is one of the most fun characters to play in almost any game.

22. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (Playstation 2)

I've been obsessed with Lord of the Rings since Elementary school, so naturally a LOTR game had to appear on this list. As I said in WildandYoung's thread, I liked the Two Towers game a lot, but I feel that this one expanded on the game play and features of that one. I liked that you had more playable characters (the eight surviving members of the fellowship and Faramir), even if the hobbits were all basically the same character. This game is just a completely linear, story based hack and slash, but it kept me coming back for tons of replays. The Black Gate level and the Battle of Pelennor Fields especially got many playthroughs from me. After completion of the initial story, you unlock a horde mode of sorts called the Palantir of Saruman (and the harder level Palantir of Sauron) that gets pretty intense. Anyway, movie tie-in games usually suck, but this is one of the rare exceptions.

21. Assassin's Creed (Xbox 360)

I've only played the first two in the series, so that's why this one is up here instead of one of the (potentially) better newer ones. The second one was alright, but it just lacked the magic or whatever that the first one had. I liked the story mode because it required a little bit of stealth and finesse, but still kinda let you go balls out when doing the story assassinations. Also, I really can never get sick of getting in city wide chases with the guards. Just trying to seamlessly free run during a heated pursuit was entertainment enough. Plus, the hidden blade is one of the coolest fucking weapons in any game.

20. Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (Xbox)

An interesting concept to have an LOTR game take place outside of the book story lines, but it totally works. The game follows a group that is on a journey somewhat parallel to the Fellowship's. I love the moments where your group of adventurers have random indirect contact with the actual Fellowship such as the cut scene in the Mines of Moria. The game plays a lot like any console RPG (like Final Fantasy) with leveling and turn-based combat and random events and whatnot. After beating the game you unlock "Evil Mode" which lets you reenact the major battles of the story from the opposite perspective which is pretty cool.

A little linear and slow, but very good. The last level, once you get Aragorn, is so fucking easy.

Great game, it wasn't in mine just because the combat isn't the best to me.I never finished it though, got stuck at the Witch-King and never got back to it.Glad to see some LOTR love here!

My first system was a PS1 in ~'97, so I don't really have much experience with SNES outside of occasionally at friend's houses and I'm not too much of a PC gamer. Diff'rent strokes and such.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/98/Saints_Row_The_Third_box_art.jpg

19. Saints Row: The Third (Xbox 360)

This game is amazing because it was never afraid to go completely over the top into realms that few video games of its ilk dare to. From beating people to death with giant dildos to the insanity of the Professor Genki minigames to mission in cyberspace to having a character who can only talk through autotune, the game is always ready to explore otherwise uncharted territory. The soundtrack was also surprisingly badass with TBDM, Tyler the Creator, Mastodon, Dethklok and a bunch of good electronic and classical tracks. I haven't played the fourth one yet, but I hear that it pushes the envelope even more and look forward to checking it out in the future.

18. Dead Rising (Xbox 360)

I love Dawn of the Dead, so what's basically a game version of that movie is bound to be one of my favorite games ever. This was my first 360 game and it was months before I got another one, so I spent loads of quality time with this game. First off, the story is actually pretty damn hard as it's "timed" in a way, so if you're not in the right place at the right time, you can't finish the story. The fact that damn near everything in the mall is a weapon provides hours of fun. Want to pie a zombie in the face? You got it. Stick a shower head in a zombie and watch it spout out blood like a fountain? Check. Disembowel a zombie with your bare hands? Why not?

Also, Kent is an annoying cunt.

I received Saints Row 3 for the 360 and...like it was okay but I didn't play it that much. It was on a humble bundle sale for PC a year or so back and I picked it up for dirt cheap and it was just super fucking addicting to me. Great game.

And I love Dead Rising, but I think Dead Rising 2 does everything the first one does, and has way better stuff in it.

:D I approve of those two picks.

SR3 is awesome and by far the best SR there is. SR4 sucked huge balls.

Dead Rising is awesome and the first one will always be the best, sure DR2 may have did everything better but DR was so groundbreaking and addicting.

17. Peggle (Xbox Live Arcade)

This game is the perfect game if you're having a bad day. Peggle is pure, unadulterated happiness. It's just a simple arcade game that involves shooting a ball at some pegs, but it ends up being hours upon hours of fun. Before my 360 decided to delete the majority of my data, I was only two challenges away from completing all of the 75 challenges too. :bouville:

16. Crackdown (Xbox 360)

If you can't tell already, I really like a great sandbox game and that's just what Crackdown is. What makes Crackdown shine above a lot of other games of this type is that you have freaking superpowers that gradually become stronger as you advance through the game. The story is pretty straight forward; basically just kick the shit out of the three gangs controlling the three parts of the city, but still fun. The twist at the end is pretty cool as well. The free DLC, "Keys to the City" mode gives you the ability to alter your stats, spawn items and other such nonsense that allow you to cause even more havoc than before and adds plenty more entertainment to an already entertaining game.

15. Dead or Alive: Ultimate (Xbox)


A collection of the first two Dead or Alive games updated for the Xbox. This is mainly here because of the second disc, which is the updated version of Dead or Alive 2. Besides the obvious appeal to an adolescent of girls in revealing outfits, the DOA series also has some of the best mechanics in any fighting game series that I've played. Also, the use of non-lethal environmental hazards worked way smoother than with most games in the genres. I'm pretty sure this was also the Dead or Alive that had "Dream On" by Aerosmith in the opening credits that had me on an Aerosmith kick for awhile after first playing it.

Other great games in this series: Dead or Alive 3

14. Pokemon Stadium 1 & 2 (N64)

Man, when these came out, I desperately wanted a N64 so I could have these games. My only salvation was a friend who also happened to love Pokemon and had a N64, so naturally I was at his much as much as possible. These games were awesome because they brought a cinematic quality to the battles from the turn based battles experienced in the Gameboy games. The adventure mode in this game is basically the same as the Gameboy games, but with less walking and training. The mini-games sections features a bunch of Mario Party-style mini-games that provide continuous entertainment. My friend and I (same one mentioned above) still bust these out all the time to fuck around in battle mode or do a couple of heated mini-game tournaments.

13. Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage

I think this series was completely under-appreciated. These were great adventure (I think that's the term for these types of games) games. Ripto's Rage was just about a dragon adventuring through the seasonal realms, collecting orbs and fighting bosses, interspersed with some corny jokes. I remember the game having really cool level design/landscapes for the time as well.

12. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (Plastation 2)

Just about everyone got into a skateboarding game at some point and my first experience was with THPS 2 on N64, but I didn't become enamored with the series until playing this one. THPS 3 had way better maps than the previous game and improved and easier to navigate controls. Before I really got into music too much, I used to alternate playing "Ace of Spades" and "Blitzkrieg Bop" on repeat for hours on end playing this game. The Cruise Ship level was possibly the best level in any of the Tony Hawk games. Darth Maul was a real "what the fuck" as a bonus character though.

Other great games in the series: Tony Hawk's Underground 2, Tony Hawk's Project 8

11. Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (Xbox)

This is my favorite fighting game of all time. The series came along way from the MKII that my friend and I used to play on SNES and it's all for the better. This game switched to two fighting styles (hand-to-hand and with a weapon) instead of the three fighting styles of the previous two games which made for a nice, healthy median between the simplicity of the old generation and the new. The environmental hazards in this game are pretty awesome as well. Undead Liu Kang is probably my favorite character in any fighting game.

Other great games in the series: MKII

10. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare & Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360)

Yeah, whatever, Call of Duty has just grown into something to be mocked in the video game world, but these were great when they came out and the peak of the series. The first Call of Duty was just another military mixed in with Medal of Honor and SOCOM and all those others, but the second installment of the series really separated Call of Duty from the pack. Call of Duty 2 stood out because realism took a backseat to fun and you were basically a superhuman with Halo health running around decimating Nazis. That's what really made the CoD series stand out for me. Anyway, CoD 4 is my favorite because it is probably the most engaging story I've ever encountered in a military game. Like, man, when Griggs died, I actually felt bad for constantly calling him an incompetent piece of shit. Now, where Modern Warfare 2 lacked in story it completely made up for in, well, everything else. At first I hated all the added killstreaks and shit in multiplayer, but eventually grew to accept and even really like the multiplayer experience. Honestly though, the most fun addition for me was the tactical knife. Tac knife + Marathon + Commando = Fuck you. The co-op Special Ops missions were also super fun, especially the stealth one with the dogs and snow (Fuck, I was like two seconds from beating Infinity Ward's time!).

Other great games in the series: Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops II

First Call of Duty was just a rehash of what Medal of Honor and SOCOM and all those other military games were doing at the time. CoD 2 was probably the best WWII game of all time though.

I was late to the CoD series and have only played MW3 and Ghosts. Is it worth it to go back and play Cod4 and MW2? I have a feeling that multiplayer would be the same so would the stories be worth it? I admit I was a little lost when I played MW3's story mode for the first little while as it just jumps right in to where they left off.

I've also been told to ignore the Treyarch games and just stick with the Infinity ward games.

CoD 4 has the best story of the series in my opinion and is totally worth checking out. MW2 story is decent. Not spectacular. It has that one level that got all that controversy because you're basically shooting up an airport terminal full of civilians. So, there's that. The co-op Special Ops missions are fun as fuck though.

I retract all my statements about the first Call of Duty. I was thinking of Call of Duty 2: Big Red One. I don't remember the first one at all.

9. Star Wars: Battlefront II (Xbox & PSP)

Basically the same as the first one, but with the addition of Jedis and space battles. Both sound like awesome additions, but honestly I just want to shoot shit in a game like this. Adding upgraded weapons was probably the best improvement over the first one to me. I wasn't too big on playing as the Jedi in this because it just becomes too easy, but the level where you can do an all heroes match is fucking awesome. Also, the level where you have to eliminate the Gungans is probably the best thing a Star Wars fan can ask for.

Yeah, the first level where you play the droid army attacking on Naboo slaughtering Gungans is a dream come true. Never has wiping an entire species out felt so good.

8. Worms Armageddon (PC)

For those not familiar, this is a strategy game that involves setting up worms on a destructible terrain and trying to eliminate the opposing teams with various high powered weapons. My friend and I used to play this for hours on end and I just bought it again on Steam and it's my most played game. Banana bombs are probably the most unpredictably destructive force I've ever encountered in a video game.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was a level in both games. Either way, you can never have enough Gungan genocide.

COD is the most milked game right now. When ya see little first graders wearing COD:Ghost sweaters and talking bout it ya know you won a big fan base. (I work at school)

That being said COD 2 and Modern Warfare 1 were the best, Modern Warfare 2 was fun and everything else are cut paste and repeat boring games.

7. Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (Xbox & PC)

This holds the record for game I have bought/re-bought the most times. I've had three copies of it for Xbox and I recently bought it on Steam. Anyway, the campaign is pretty fun and all, but the real treat is the awesome multiplayer. Ten way lightsaber battles are fucking ridiculous. Unlike most games involving lightsaber, the control are flawless and aren't wonky in the least. There's nothing more satisfying than force pushing some fool into a pit of lava either. I wish they'd make another one of these for the new generation so I could actually experience some online play for a game like this.

Jedi Academy was a great game. It needed more Kyle Katarn though. That guy was awesome.

I've always wanted a game that combined Jedi Academy's gameplay with Knights of the Old Republic's storytelling....and Dead or Alive's character design.


And any of the WORMs game I played were great. I haven't played those in at least fifteen years.

6. Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360)

*Disclaimer! I haven't played GTA V yet, so I'm just talking about the series up to GTA IV.

This is probably the 360 game I've played the most and can still play constantly. I've always liked the GTA series, but they definitely outdid themselves with this one. I really love the attention to detail in this game, such as pedestrians walking around with cigarettes and coffee and checking cell phones. The protagonist, Niko Bellic, is my favorite in the series and I love the whole "an immigrant trying to make it in America" plot. LCHC is such an awesome radio station too and gets even better in the Lost and the Damned DLC with the addition of extreme metal. I can entertaining myself for hours on end doing pointless shit in this game from mass killings to dicking around in a helicopter to just browsing the "internet," laughing at Rockstar's spot-on satire.

Other great games in the series: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

5. Super Smash Bros. (N64)

The ultimate party game. A great spin on the fighting games featuring all your favorite characters from Nintendo franchises. This game really needs no explanation. Everyone's played it. I wasn't big on the sequel for Gamecube. It nerfed my favorite character (Pikachu) a bit, but it did add some to my favorite level (Hyrule Temple).

One of the top 3 hangovers in my life was SmashBros related.

We had excess beer in my suite in college that we wanted to just burn through. So we started playing SSB. This evolved to a twisted game where we played 2 minute matches where the loser had to drink an entire beer. I lost a lot :eyes: and lets face it most people cheat and drink like half a beer after the first two or so but I've never been one to do that with my drinking (which is almost definitely not worthwhile behavior :lol: ) For my young and resilient body :eyes: :bouville:, the morning after that was an unprecedentedly bad experience.

4. Pokemon Crystal (Gameboy Color, Gameboy Emulator, Android)

Probably my proudest achievement in a video game to date is when my friend and I captured all 250 Pokemon in Pokemon Gold. Pretty much all of elementary school and a bit of middle school was spent playing the first six Pokemon games on my Gameboy color and then again in high school when I completed the goal of every Pokemon trainer. More recently, I've killed many hours on my computer with an emulator and an app on my phone. Point is, I fucking love these games. In the end, I've played the Generation II games more because the "story mode" is longer and fuck not being able to press A to cut.

Other great games in the series: Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red, Pokemon Gold, Pokemon Silver, Pokemon Fire Red

3. Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox)

The best FPS to ever be released and a complete game changer for the genre in general. There's really not much to be said about this that hasn't already been said. Everyone has played this and what the fuck is wrong with you if you haven't? Probably the best Campaign of all time. "Truth & Reconciliation", "Silent Cartographer" and "Assault on the Control Room" are some of the best levels in anything ever. The multiplayer was phenomenal with iconic maps such as "Blood Gulch." Yeah, this game still kicks so much ass to this day. The sequels have all been pretty good, but will never live up to the original.

2a. Crash Bandicoot: Warped (Playstation)

My favorite platformer series of all time. The preceding game in the series was the first video game I ever played. I think I played this one more overall though and eventually got 100% in it. All the different locales are consistently interesting as are the different monsters and junk. Plus, once you get the bazooka, shit gets real.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/4f/CrashTeamRacingNACover.png

2b. Crash Team Racing (Playstation)

My most played game on any pre-360 console by far. I played this game so fucking much that I memorized the various paths the NPCs took on most levels for better placement of weapons. Gimme all the shit you want, but this is better than Mario Kart by miles and is the best racing game of all time.


Other great games in the series: Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash Bash

1. Runescape (Browser based)

If you don't know what Runescape is, it's the largest MMORPG around and basically a poor man's World of Warcraft. I've wasted an embarrassing amount of my life on this game and keep coming back for more every so often. I can't even explain why I find this game so entertaining, but I do, even with the many adverse changes over the years. Anyway, many a fond memory has came from this game, so I'd be doing my childhood an injustice by not putting this at the top of the list.

Fun fact (not really):My username actually came from one of my original usernames in Runescape which was derived from a monster in the game (Kalphite Guardian), but shortened to accommodate RS's 12-character name limit.

Great list. I'll admit I haven't heard of a lot of the newer stuff. But judging by the rest that I have heard of I'm sure it's all quality stuff.

I'm still baffled that a game called "Peggle" was ranked higher than Mass Effect 3. The only conclusion I can come to is that Peggle is full of nudity, lightsabers and zombies.
