The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2000!

  • 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
    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! :)

  • @chocobop Until that magician can will it into existence like he's done with Shenmue, RE 2 Remake, Onimusha, and a host of others, I still don't see it.

  • Mario Party 2

  • Isn't Mario Party 2 considered to be the best one in the series? Regardless, of the entries debuted so far, this is the first I probably would play. Granted, I'm not really a Mario Party person, but this a game that doesn't really take much in terms of time investment (if you're not careful at least).

  • I dunno if it's considered one of the best generally, but of the few I've personally played and even the ones I've just seen other people play it's the best by a country mile.
