The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2000!



  • 2000 wasn't a year for me in gaming, so I can't comment like I normally do (I'll probably only speak about four entries), but I'll do my best with what's posted.

    For Tekken Tag Tournament, being a complete novice in the fighting game genre leaves me without the ability to really say anything, so good for it for showing up on the list.

    Timesplitters is interesting in light of the recent (?) news that THQ Nordic bought the IP. I'm curious if it will be revived and either remastered or a new game will come.

    Super happy for the return of this type of thread!



  • Tekken Tag Tournament is one of the two 2000 games I played for the first time after sending my list (the other being Shenmue). I quite like it but don't want to think about whether or not I would have put it on my list if I played it prior.
    TTT feels like a greatest hits Tekken game from up to that point, throw away the story and put all the characters together. It's kinda like KoF '98 or '02 in that regard.

    TimeSplitters is on the right spot on the list for me. Fun game but nothing special. It seems really designed for the multiplayer. There really isn't much to the single player campaign of the first TS though it is fun while it lasts.
    Also I don't think it the first one ever came out on Gamecube and Xbox or am I wrong?



  • i was 8 years old in 2000 (im old i know) so most of the games i voted on were played years after they came out

    I was 15! :(



  • I was 20



  • Timesplitters was so close for me as an honorable mention. For my money, that's as close as a game will ever get to successfully pulling off being the "next Goldeneye." I spent an absurd amount of hours killing ducks.



  • Yooo we had FUN playing Tekken Tag Tournament all night at sleep overs with friends. I don't think I played it until like 2003 though.



  • I was also 8.



  • I was 6, haha. Def didn't play these games until I was like 8-10.

  • So I never actually played the original Timesplitters and I don't remember it getting too much in terms of high praise. I jumped in for Timesplitters 2 and Future Perfect and adored those games but can't realistically vote just for the sake of the series.

    But yes, THQ, please give me my remaster. Do it!



  • I stopped playing Tekken at 3 and have never even tried TTT. Timesplitters however was one of two games that I bought at launch with my PS2, the other being Kessen. I didn't like it much though to be honest. It kept me going for a bit I guess, but the singleplayer aspect felt very lazy to me. It wasn't until Timesplitters 2 that the series showed what it could do.

    I was 19 in the year 2000.



  • I was only 7 back in 2000 and all I had was a genesis with sonic 2 and some other games I never played more than once, so all my votes are for games I played way after the fact.

    Never played either of these games, but I've always heard good things. Did enjoy what little I played of Tekken Tag 2 for whatever that's worth.



  • I was 13 in 2000 and if Deus Ex doesn't win this countdown i'm going to quit the internet! :D

    TTT is probably Top 3 for Tekken games (besides 3 and 4), never played Timesplitters.

  • Ahhhh, Dino Crisis. I think I'm being/have been swayed by Huber, but I feel like this series is due to comeback (like many other games out there). Sadly, I don't see it happening.



  • Surprised I missed this. I checked my forum backlog last week. Must've thought it was about 2017/2018 GOTY at a glance.

    Here are my picks, FWIW (3 of which are in my top 5 games of all time):

    1. Perfect Dark
    2. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
    3. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
    4. Pokémon Gold & Silver

    Honorable mentions:

    Paper Mario
    Banjo-Tooie
    Mario Party 2
    Pokémon Stadium

    These are actually the only 8 I liked enough to mention, but if this had been about 1999...wowza!



  • @oscillator We have the same number 2 game of all time!! Perfect Dark is Forever! ;) And while I think I'm not supposed to reveal my votes, had you voted in this poll in time we would have had further overlap at the top of our lists. (o^-')b

    Agreed and took the words right out of my mouth! The Huber effect is real.

    Sadly, I don't see it happening.

    Sorry, those aren't words the Huber I know would say! :)
