    14. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (2004) - 219 Points - 11 Votes - Highest Vote: #1 DeweyDecibel

    Developer: Konami
    Publisher: Konami
    Genre: Action Adventure, stealth
    Platform(s): PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3

    The Cold War, a situation created after the Second World War when the world was torn between East and West, is about to heat up as Soviets got their top scientist, Nikolai Stepanovich Sokolov, back due to agreement with the US government for withdrawing the nuclear missiles from Cuba. Now, with Sokolov in their hands, they're up to developing a powerful new weapon, and upon realizing the urgency of the situation, CIA formed a plan to recapture Sokolov. They dispatch the covert FOX unit to Sokolov's research facility, located to the south of the great Soviet fortress of Groznyj Grad. Led by former SAS member Major Zero, FOX is a next-generation special-forces unit that operates both as a specialized combat group and as a covert intelligence outfit. The FOX unit's modus operandi is to send a single agent, backed by radio support from afar, into enemy territory to carry out solo sneaking mission.
    August 24, 1964, a lone soldier swoops down from out of the blue. The man's code name is Naked Snake. It's a one-man war now, and the future of the world may now rest entirely on his shoulders.

    Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is the prequel to the entire Metal Gear series. Most of the series' defining gameplay elements have been carried over. As before, Snake must use stealth and wits rather than brute force to infiltrate enemy zones and eliminate his major adversaries. Action set-pieces and boss battles that require the player to figure out the enemy's weakpoints and employ unique tactics to defeat him are also present.

  • mgs3 is a special game for me its the only game in the 24 years of my life that made me cry.



  • I'm a bit shocked that MGS3 didn't make the top 10.

    Absolutely incredible game, easily just the all round best MGS game you can get. Has a fantastic setting, characters, boss fights!

    The Ladder!!



  • I honestly completely forgot about Snake eater. A masterpiece deserving of its high place.

    The Ladder!!

    SNAKE EATER!!!!!!



  • I'm bummed that the only racing games we've gotten are kart racers, and that there probably won't be anymore at this point.



  • I can't speak about either of today's entries, but I do have a thought related to FF IX: I love seeing the overall jolly vibes I read when any Final Fantasy makes the list. While we all have our favorites and we may disagree about particular entries, I'm emboldened to say: Final Fantasy just rules. Period. As a series, there is something for everyone and I'm so stoked a lot of different entries are getting represented. I mean, comparing it others, there may only be very few rivals like Mario and Zelda (hmmmm.... This gives me an idea :smiling_imp: )

    Everytime I check back in on this thread, it puts me in such a good mood. Love and Respect fellow Allies!



  • @Oscillator Don't get me started. No Burnout on the list!! Also really surprised we probably won't see an SSX either :(



  • I didn't vote for it, but definitively a well deserved spot for MGS 3.



  • When I think that Snake Eater is the second best in the series, it's a fucking good series. Although I just about tip the original Metal Gear Solid over Snake Eater overall, Snake Eater features some of the best innovations and ideas you'll ever find in video games. It's an incredible game and I'm so glad it's seriously high up.

    But I have a feeling Metal Gear Solid will be even higher.



  • Yeah! MGS3 is so fucking good!



  • Never playing MGS3 is a mark of shame for me... How's the 3DS port?



  • @naltmank I've no idea but I can only imagine it'd be a struggle on that device. As someone who's completed the game countless times, it was a bit harder on Vita but I'd put that ahead of the 3DS version.

    Try and get the HD collection if you can.



  • @naltmank it wouldnt be too bad on a new 3ds on the original 3ds it uses the shoulder buttons for camera control

    13. Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal (1999) - 221 Points - 12 Votes - Highest Vote: #4 naltmank

    Developer: Game Freak
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Genre: RPG
    Platform(s): GameBoy Color

    Pokémon Gold takes place several years after Red, Blue and Yellow, and puts the user into a brand new world, Johto. The gameplay is very similar to the previous games, but with several improvements. These include new functions for the player's PokéGear, a Pokédex that can now be sorted by evolution type, and, of course, new Pokémon. Once again, the objective of the game is to become the champion trainer, and try to complete the Pokédex. To become the champion, the player battles Gym Leaders to obtain various badges. Completing the Pokédex requires a different set of actions, and involves capturing wild Pokémon, battling various trainers to obtain money, and trading Pokémon with NPC's and other owners of Pokémon games.

  • yay gen 2 best generation of pokemon i got Chrystal man that game was awsome.



  • And people thought Gen 2 was going to get left off. Doubters. :smirk:

    Anyway, it's good to see it here! Yes, it does so many things improved over the original games, but I prefer R/B over G/S. But they're all good games and games that make up the bulk of my child hood.

    As odd as it is (because it would be cooler to say with a top 10), I'm going to predict IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER what games are remaining: I'm most likely wrong, but here is what I'm thinking will be the top EZA games (I'm confident in 9)

    Metal Gear Solid
    Final Fantasy VII
    Super Mario Bros. 3
    The Last of Us
    Dark Souls (Dark Horse Prediction)
    GTA IV (Dark Horse Prediction)
    Super Mario 64
    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    DOOM II (Dark Horse Prediction)
    Resident Evil 4
    Resident Evil 2
    Mass Effect 2

    I think you're right about these. I'd add Chrono Trigger, Shadow of the Colossus, and something else that I'm probably overlooking.

    You might be right about GTA, but I'd guess San Andreas over IV.



  • I'm surprised we haven't seen the original Super Mario Bros. yet!



  • @Faaip There hasn't been a single NES game...
