Kill Your Babies! (Action Adventure Edition)



  • I wanted to keep this little game going, so this week it's the Action Adventure games turns. I'm just going to copy and paste the rules from the original post from @SabotageTheTruth :
    I really loved this segment from the old Mandatory Update days, so let's bring it back. Real simple rules for those unfamiliar - I'm going to present a list of the 20 best reviewed Action Adventure games of all time (according to gamerankings.com). Each comment after this will take a turn "killing" a game; it will have never been created and the world never will get a chance to experience it. Of course to make it more fun, explain why you're removing that game from existence. For upkeep needs, please post the list at the end of your comment, striking out the game you've just murdered. Once we're down to two entries, a straw poll will be created to determine the winner. Whatever game doesn't get murdered becomes the best Action Adventure Game ever created in our parallel universe without question. Let the killing begin!

    As an additional rule for this edition, I decided to only include the top two games of any franchise. Otherwise over half this list was just three game series, and I wanted people to have more choice in case they weren't fans of those few series.

    1. Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time
    2. Grand Theft Auto IV
    3. Grand Theft Auto V
    4. Uncharted 2
    5. Batman Arkham City
    6. Resident Evil 4
    7. The Last of Us
    8. Metal Gear Solid 2
    9. Ninja Gaiden Black
    10. Red Dead Redemption
    11. Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess
    12. Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
    13. Resident Evil Code: Veronica
    14. God of War
    15. Metal Gear Solid 4
    16. Minecraft
    17. Uncharted 4
    18. God of War 2
    19. Prince of Persia Sands of Time

  • I guess I will start off things. I will take The Last of Us out because...I really didn't enjoy the game.

    This one will be interesting, thank you for starting another one :)

    I kill Uncharted 2 because to me it's one of the most overrated games ever, stopped playing the series after it.

    First thing I want to say is god damn.. poor Naughty Dog getting no love from the start.

    Next thing is having MGS4 & (to a lesser extent) MGS2 ahead of MGS3 is blasphemy! I was going to kill MGS4 until I noticed another fourth entry - GTA IV. I feel like this game by itself turned me off the GTA series. I loved all the earlier entries but 4 just felt like such a dull, colourless and overall kind of boring game.

    Metal Gear Solid 4 is out. While it brings a great conclusion to a great story, I felt a strong degree of pandering to the audience here. A lot of elements seemed like they were there more because of necessity to be there, and that developers were bound by it.

    Minecraft is one of those games I really wanted to like, but just couldn't get into. Kill it.



  • Thanks for taking up the reins this week @Inustar, now I can kill without worry!

    I'm going to kill the "perfect masterpiece that can never be criticized." It's not a terrible game but it's also a game that has a lot of issues that everyone looks past because Zelda. Later Ocarina, I won't miss you!

  • Last of Us and Uncharted 2 to START?!?! This is going to be BRUTAL. So I'm going to do something I'm in equal parts revenge killing and legitimate concern: Goodbye Red Dead Redemption. For a game that is so loved, I decided to watch Red Dead Revisited (and will continue to do so), but with all the time Mr. Jones has put into it, I've STILL yet to see the game's appeal. I never played the game, so I was (and still am to an extent) excited for the stream, but this game just isn't clicking for me. Buh Bye Mr. Marston.

    Man I love this game. So many great games still left. I still have four interests left and three others I would be good with.... Can't wait for more posts!!



  • And so quickly all my faves were killed...

    I love this game :)



  • I mean, if OoT is not a good enough game to win then Twilight Princess sure as hell isn't either.

  • @SabotageTheTruth :O how dare you..

    I wish we could place bets for the winner, but I think it'd be hard to that without influencing the results



  • Someone's got to do this now before it is too late :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    Luckily OoT was already killed off :grimacing:

    There isn't a single Splinter Cell that I would consider a good game to be honest. I have no idea how they were so loved.
