Kill Your Babies!



  • Love you, Bioshock, but a game that screws up its ending as badly as you did does not deserve to be called the greatest ever made.

    Sorry Halo. I never played you, and you are my least favorite of what is left.

    GTAV in a heartbeat, the only game whose story has pissed me off enough to make stop playing a game I was enjoying, I felt insulted by what that game's story was doing, and it ruined what was an otherwise a pretty good game.

    Mass Effect 2, you are a good game, but you killed most of the RPG elements I liked about your predecessor.

    Resident Evil 4 began a steep descent into bad storytelling, bottom of the barrel plot twists and same old same old game mechanics. Off with its head.

    "To begin with, let me plead that you have been told of one or two things which Style is not; which have little or nothing to do with Style, though sometimes vulgarly mistaken for it. Style, for example, is not – can never be – extraneous Ornament. You remember, may be, the Persian lover whom I quoted to you out of Newman: how to convey his passion he sought a professional letter-writer and purchased a vocabulary charged with ornament, wherewith to attract the fair one as with a basket of jewels. Well, in this extraneous, professional, purchased ornamentation, you have something which Style is not: and if you here require a practical rule of me, I will present you with this: ‘Whenever you feel an impulse to perpetrate a piece of exceptionally fine writing, obey it – wholeheartedly – and delete it before sending your manuscript to press. Murder your darlings.’"

    Soul calibur is simply better than tekken 3 and we don't need 2 so similar games at the top, even if both are great. Tekken 3 is out.

    Half life 2

    Loved this game but one thing I can't stand is companies that just sit on a popular franchise. Valve know we want more half life but they are not interested. Give it to someone else to make.

    Well this one is easy. Not sure how it outlasted all these other games but. NINJA Gaiden Black. Its a great action game but i never did care to finish it.

    Portal 2 simply isn't as good as the first game generally speaking and, at least in my opinion, certainly doesn't compete with a lot of other games on this list for "best ever."



  • When did we loose Soul Calibur?



  • We didn't it should still be up there.



  • I was waiting to come in near the end because I knew that several of the games I enjoy wouldn't make it so to recap the list is down to 3:

    Super Mario Galaxy
    Soul Calibur
    Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

    Make that two because between the three, Soul Calibur doesn't quite have the quality of of SMG or MGS 2. SO: Who wants to be the one kill the last?

    Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty



  • Should we make strawpoll for the Grand finale?

    Portal 2 simply isn't as good as the first game generally speaking

    uh what? It expanded on everything and actually had a decent lengthy campaign with better writing, a better ending and an awesome super long coop campaign.

    Killing my darlings is fine, but doing it with a boldfaced lie is not okay! Shame :bell:

    What did BioShock do at the end to deserve such treatment?

    More isn't inherently better. I thought the first game was the perfect length, it got in and out before it wore out its welcome whereas Portal 2 kinda dragged. It's not a terrible game, but I wouldn't call it better than the first one.



  • Strawpoll, if you want to vote which baby survives.

  • If Mario doesn't win, I will kill your actual firstborn baby.

    J/k

    I'll just kill your secondborn instead.



  • @Krauser So if I have no children, I'm fine then, right?
