The EZA Top 100 Videogames!

  • @Sheria You may wanna check out number 77.

  • @Sheria i know its very high on one list ;)

  • Oh...oops. I'm so sorry. It's just so long revealing this list ^^

    I wonder then what Brannox considers the other.

  • @Sheria Well I guess we all will wait to find out :-D

    @SabotageTheTruth @FF7Cloud Thanks guys. ;-)

  • XII? I honestly can't believe you were referring to VIII. We all know that FFIX will be high. If VI ends up in the top 10 then.....

  • I was pretty close to putting Suikoden on my list but I left it mostly because I want to play Suikoden 2 first since everyone says it's better.

  • I think there's no real hope anymore for Suikoden at this point, which sad since I'd love to see my beloved V in here ( ; _ ; )

  • Such lamentation! We're only HALFWAY!! AND we were promised plenty of surprises! Nobody should lose hope for many games.

  • When will Knack appear? :)

  • @tokeeffe9 right after Kojima reveals himself

  • 51. The Walking Dead: Season 1
    The main game was pretty good, but the Add on kinda sucked imo.

    50. DOOM
    Sure it's an important classic and I don't dislike it, but tbh I can't say I would put it even in my Top 100, but that goes for most pre-free look FPSs. Infact the genre only became actually interesting to me in the N64 era with Turok and GoldenEye.

  • Another revelation, The Walking Dead season 1 came out in 2012?. I still remember it winning GOTY and it doesn't seem that long ago. That's scary.

    Tried it, couldn't get into it. There was a stealth section and it was just so restrictive, I wanted full control of my character. Same will all telltale games, I don't enjoy not being able to take full control during action sequences.

    Never been a fan of QUick Time Events.

  • The Walking Dead invalidates most of the praise piled upon it just 3 episodes in.

  • the walking dead: i played it it was ok i guess not a big fan of that style game

    and you guys can lynch me now ive never played the origional doom

  • No lynching from me.

    I don't want to sound like a sour old dick, but the Telltale games have never spoken to me. I dont really want to call tham much of a game. Instead it is just storytelling in my book (lol). QTE with options, I dont know...

    49. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (2015) - 100 Points - 5 Votes - Highest Vote: #3 Alex840

    Developer: Kojima Productions
    Publisher: Konami
    Genre: Action-adventure, stealth
    Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, XBOX 360, XBOX One

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a third-person action game with a focus on stealth and the final game in the Metal Gear series. Canonically it is the fifth game in the series, but it is the eleventh main installment overall. It is the sequel to Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes released the year before and a prequel to the original Metal Gear. The gameplay borrows and expands upon most of the mechanics introduced in Ground Zeroes, which was a smaller slice in content in anticipation of this title. The game is set in 1984 with Big Boss also known as Punished "Venom" Snake as the protagonist. It takes place in Afghanistan and the border between Angola and Zaire as Big Boss seeks revenge against the Cipher group led by Skull Face who destroyed his forces and almost killed him in Ground Zeroes. At the start of the game he wakes up in a military hospital in Cyprus and is almost immediately attacked by soldiers and a strange, burning creature. Eventually he is rescued by Ocelot, he locates Kaz Miller and the trio then establishes a base to hunt down Cipher and its covert strike force XOF with commander Skull Face.

    The game has a complex story with the typical long cut-scene sequences, but there are fewer and they are shorter compared to earlier Metal Gear Solid titles. Most of the gameplay mechanics introduced in Ground Zeroes are carried over. It is still an action game and stealth oriented, but replaces the linear corridor design from most earlier titles with large open world environments that offer the player unrestricted freedom for the approach. Ground Zeroes only offered a single environment, while this game has many and brings back the base building feature from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. To access advanced tools and weapons, Big Boss needs to complete missions for Miller so he can expand the main Mother Base. The player needs to focus on a consistent flow of the GMP currency to manage the base, research new technologies, hire soldiers and use money during missions for instance to call in an air strike. Next to merely completing missions, a Fulton technology can be used to transport back items, weapons, vehicles and even soldiers with interesting abilities to the Mother Base to use them. Soldiers can be assigned to different teams for combat, research or gathering intel. Eventually they can be sent out to complete missions on their own, providing additional GMP. A companion app on a real smartphone can be used to manage the base as well.

    48. Metroid Prime (2002) - 101 Points - 7 Votes - Highest Vote: #4 Billy, Axel

    Developer: Retro Studios, Nintendo
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Genre: Action Adventure
    Platform(s): GameCube, Wii

    Long ago, a bird-like race of creatures (called the Chozo) became extremely advanced technologically, but due to increasing violence in the universe, they began to hide and live more simple lives. The planet Tallon IV was the site of one of their colonies. Years later, a meteor crashed on Tallon IV releasing the strange element Phazon into the planet. Phazon poisoned anything it came in contact with, causing the plant and animal life to either die or mutate into a hideous form. The Chozo tried to control the power of Phazon but failed. Before abandoning the planet, they were able to cover the impact crater with a temple and seal Phazon into the planets core. Now space pirates have discovered Tallon IV, moving in to study Phazon and harnessing its power. They have also began rebuilding their fortress on planet Zebes and reviving the Mother Brain, Ridley, and Kraid, all of whom were destroyed by Samus Aran. However, Samus has tracked the space pirates to Tallon IV and must now enter the planet to destroy them once and for all before they have a chance to rebuild their destructive forces...

    Metroid Prime is a change from the platform-adventuring series, entering the first-person shooter genre for the first time. Players are now behind Samus Aran's visor and must use all their resources to investigate the pirate infestation of Tallon IV. Players can use Samus's beam, with missile and charge capabilities. Along the way, they must recover the bounty hunter's lost abilities like the morph ball and grapple beam, which allow them to reach unexplored areas of Tallon IV. Players must piece together the story of the fallen Chozo to figure what has happened to the poisoned planet, and prevent the pirates from using the Phazon to wreak havoc throughout the planets.

    49. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
    I still don't know why I havnt picked this up yet... I love the other parts in the series. With its cinematic feel, story full of so many twists to make a rope knoter jealous and music to die for this should be right up my ally. Yet I just havnt played it and I think that I should.

    48. Metroid Prime
    I think that Samus seem like a cool character and I like puzzling, but I never had a gamecube so I have missed most of the Metroid games, one day perhaps, one day.

  • i dislike endless waves of respawning enemies in games, next to QTE it's probably my biggest annoyance. Examples such as boss fights in Borderland 2,, COD 4 and KillZone where enemies keep coming until you pass a invisible line. Mass Effecct 2 and XCom 2 (final mission ) are also guilty of this.

    Here's Metal Gear Solid 5, with its huge map and no respawning enemies. Although There is one mission where I carefully infiltrated a building and took down all the guards on the way and after a cutscene all the guards were back in place, I wasn't best pleased.

    A game with 2. Huge maps and it was very polished, looks and runs great. I actually enjoy the mission structure, those last few missions were especially tense where you started with no loadout.

    The PC version was also amazing.

  • Now I'm seeing the meat of my list make the cut, which is always nice!

    GoldeneEye 007
    Ah, GoldenEye. The game my older brother bought with the N64. He doesn't play many video games anymore, but GoldenEye is the one we still play together to this day. If you want a real blast on multi-player with that game, just go on Licence to Kill, Proximity Mines, Facility. My brother and I got so good at this mode that we developed our own meta where we knew where the spawning points where and would develop tactics into psyching each other out. But this could backfire as you could rack up a whole bunch of suicides if you weren't careful!

    The Walking Dead
    One of the best told stories in gaming. End of.

    Resident Evil
    I still hold this as the best game in the series and one of the best horror games ever made. Capcom recreated everything from the ground up and surpassed the original in every single way, whilst adding so much on top of that. The atmosphere and sheer dread that drips from every corner of the game is simply fantastic. And Lisa Trevor is still my most feared gaming creation. Even now at the age of 27 I find her terrifying. And because of the GameCube's relative failure in the generation, I was overjoyed when it was brought to modern platforms.
