The EZA Top 100 Videogames!

  • Alright! Two more games I'm familiar with.

    Uncharted 2 is a phenomenal game. I voted for an Uncharted game, but not for 2 as I feel it's the best the series. But I digress. Uncharted 2 does a wonderful job traveling the globe and has a better treasure to go after than Drake's Fortune. However, Lazarevic is a bit lame while being excellent: A villain who will kill his own men to make a point (Gets things done), but his entire boss fight and pretty much the entire time he is in Shambala, he loses that mentality to gloat (a common flaw in villain design).

    Looking back at my list, this may have been my one oversight, but it's ok. The game didn't need my vote to make it deep into the thread.

    I'm super happy Uncharted is represented so high. @Sentinel-Beach, @Faaip, @DeweyDecibel, @Alex840, @NCartwright15, @tokeeffe9, @blakynt, @naltmank, @Inustar, and @MCRMJ I salute and thank all of you for being Uncharted fans!

    As for the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, this was my favorite Gamecube game and is my favorite Legend of Zelda. I got really far (I think Puppet Gannon) before I lost my system. I loved sailing the seas and even though I don't like Legend of Zelda in general, I wouldn't mind giving this game another try sometime. Granted, I didn't like it enough to place on my top 30 list, but I'm stoked to see it place in the top 25. Both of these games in fact.

    Still waiting to see OG and OoT Zelda...

  • I gotta show my disappointment at seeing the mediocrity that is U2 so high in the list, even though I expected it would be the case, the first two games are incredibly mediocre in my eyes, specially when considering how linear and restrictive they are, I imagine that the third and probably fourth will be on the list, I haven't played those, but unless there's a radical change on them I wouldn't consider them in even a top 50 for myself, but that is just me ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • @Brannox I'd be very surprised if The Legend of Zelda makes the list.

  • @Ringedwithtile Yeah I wouldn't count with the original making it in at such a high spot either

  • Uncharted 2 is probably my favorite Uncharted game. Its tough with how good 4 was, but 2 still stands out in my memory the most. Easily one of my favorite game series in part due to my love/obsession with Indiana Jones and similar stories so the predictability and straight up adventure story doesn't bother me in the least.

    Wind Waker is fantastic as well. I love the art style, story, sailing, etc. It also has my favorite theme from a Zelda game!

    I'm also curious to see if Legend of Zelda ends up on here. I had it on my list but I'm not sure it'll make as we inch closer

  • Agreed with @Ringedwithtile, I don't see the original Legend of Zelda making the list.

    Games I feel comfortable saying are definitely on the remaining part of the list:

    Dark Souls
    Final Fantasy VII
    Chrono Trigger
    Super Mario World
    Super Mario Bros. 3
    Ocarina of Time
    Persona 4

  • @SabotageTheTruth All on your list? ;-)

  • @Brannox No sir! Just 3 of them. Trust me, I'm going to be hurling all sorts of rotten vegetables if Ocarina gets anywhere close to the top spot.

  • Uncharted frigging 2 in the top quarter of this list, yes! And I have the highest vote (together with Faaip). Such a great game, the characters and the story moved up to a totally new level after the first one (which is still a fantastic starting point, love that too). The graphics and their details from the Nepal levels onwards were breathtaking, and that train level simply masterful. And by the end of the game it really dawned on me just how great and human Nate and Elena were as characters. That final banter is the icing on the cake. :' )

    I think I voted for all the Uncharted games, but at this point I'm only waiting for the last one to make an appearance anymore. I mean, how could it not? It's... it's perfect.

  • @SabotageTheTruth I can understand why so many like Ocarina of Time, but I say it's vastly overrated. Yes, I said it. It's a good game, but not nearly as good as many of you Zelda fanboys say it is.

  • @SabotageTheTruth Well, when throwing said vegetables, you can claim it as revenge from any tomatoes hurled your way for your Tactics speech. :-D

  • @jipostus Nostalgia is a hell of drug.

  • @SabotageTheTruth Yeah... But again, Ocarina of Time is not a bad game by any means, If anyone says that, that's just a troll comment. But it's far from that perfection as so many fanboys says it has achieved.

  • Wind Waker is a "My First Zelda". Very easy. All of the regular enemies and most of the bosses are pushovers, and most of the dungeons are linear with too obvious puzzles. The gameplay matches the (admittedly well executed, at least in the HD port) art style. The only part that gave me any trouble was the Savage Labyrinth, which was done better in Twilight Princess as the Cave of Ordeals.

    Pretty good soundtrack, at least. Not nearly as catchy or timeless as the OOT, MM, or even LTTP soundtracks, but there are some charmers:

  • @Ringedwithtile said in The EZA Top 100 Videogames Countdown!:

    I'm surprised by both of these. That Arkham City made it at all, and that Majora's Mask wasn't higher.

    Surprised that Arkham city made it all? Out of curiousity, why?
    It always seems to be pretty well regarded, and quite a few of us put it on the list.

  • @Oscillator said in The EZA Top 100 Videogames Countdown!:

    No other Zelda has anywhere near the level of storytelling as Majora. It's heavy.

    Lol, Twilight Princess has a scene very similar to Majora's dead-guy-gives-you-his-mask/soul set ups with Ralis's dead mom (among others).
    "Anywhere near," ha! Zelda fans are silly.

    Anyway, glad Skyrim got on here. Not stoked for the Souls games to ride their wave of popularity into the top 10 or so.

  • I voted for Ocarina of Time pretty high. Come at me bros. Last Zelda game I even finished.

  • Kingdom Hearts being 53 makes me sad.

    Honestly surprised the Halos aren't higher, I'm one of the most anti-xbox people you'll ever meet and I'd still put Halo 3 deep in my top 15 games of all time.

    Not gonna be happy when Ocarina of Time scums its way into a super high spot purely because it's on everyone's list somewhere around the top 20, but will be happy when the same thing happens to Dark Souls because it's infinitely better than the stuff it's beaten so far.

  • @Inustar

    My surprise isn't based on anything concrete, now that I think of it.

    I don't like the game, so I suppose that has some effect, but excusing that, it just never comes up when I talk to people about games. It just seems like the sort of game most people accept as good and kind of move on from if that makes any sense? I find it's more regularly talked about as a piece of Batman mythos (among many) than it does a superlative game in its genre.

  • I just went through and looked at my list of game to see what platform I first experienced them on, this is my result from most to least:

    PS3, PC, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, and then a tie between NES, SNES, N64, Arcade, Android, PSVita, and Ps4

    So Apparently PS3 is my favorite console.
