  1. Interested to see what you think the greatest gaming series of all time is.
    We'll consider a series 3 titles or more.
    I'll put a poll up with what I believe will be some popular choices, as well as an "other" option.

    My choice is of course the Metal Gear Solid series, but Pokemon and LoZ are not far behind.
     
  2. Metal Gear, and Legend of Zelda are number one for me. Halo has been declining after the 3rd one, and CoD needs its shining light. Hopefully Advanced Warfare will be a step in the right direction.

    One that isn't on the list and should be added is Far Cry. I've only played 2, and 3 but they were highly enjoyable.
     
  3. Mario is and probably always will be the King. Metal Gear (Solid) and Grand Theft Auto are right on its heels, though. Hitman deserves a great shout-out, too. It's not as popular as most of the ones on this list, but it's awesome and has a ton of replay value. Anyone who hasn't yet played the Hitman franchise should seek it out immediately. There's only five games in the series.

  4. I voted Final Fantasy... from the 1st game on NES.. to 3 and 4 on SNES.. to 7, 8, and 9 on PS1.. to 10 and 11 on PS2.. to 12 and 13 on PS3.. and 14 on PC as a MMORPG, Final Fantasy has consistently put out quality product... yes there were hiccups here and there as there are with any game franchise.. Final Fantasy 7 in particular was as groundbreaking a game as you could get and is one of the best selling and most popular games ever. Final Fantasy 8 is my personal favorite.
     
  5. FF 4 LYFE! Always pushing hardware limits, always having a great soundtrack, and Chocobos!

  6. FF 13 and 13 2 were embarrassing for Square Enix.
     
  7. I'd say 13-2 was embarassing, I actually dug FF 13 and the way it was played out but yes.. they were pretty far off the quality of any of the earlier ones.

    I voted FF, I'm not gonna lie Mario, Sonic and Zelda made a helluva argument though.

  8. Hitman Absolution was shit. The rest were good though.
     
  9. Elder Scrolls for me. Storytelling at its best.
     
  10. Still haven't played that one. Haven't played the original on PC either (although I watched an entire playthrough of it on Youtube, and about half of the missions were remade and remade better in Contracts anyway.) But I can attest to the greatness of Silent Assassin, Contracts, and Blood Money. Those three are all you need.

  11. Yeah, I didn't mention 10-2 or 13-2 in my post... they were both games that should not have been made... but 13, as Sharpy said.. was actually not a terrible game... not as good as previous but still not terrible.
     
  12. The new Hitman movie is shaping out to have a ton of potential, should be out like late February of this upcoming year.. Timothy Olyphant did a hell of a job playing Agent 47 in the one that came out in 2007, it's just a shame that that movie wasn't done nearly as well as it could've been.. They originally had Paul Walker slated to play 47 in this new one coming out but as we all know he is no longer with us but I do like the look the new guy, Rupert Friend, brings to the table.

    but yeah Absolution was horribad totally wouldn't recommend it, even to a heavy fan of the franchise.. the first game though on PC was hella fun for what it was; Codename 47, I liked that one a lot.
     
  13. Meryl is pretty hot.

    Hard for me to choose, tearing me apart between Legend of Zelda, Grand Theft Auto and Metal Gear Solid. Legend of Zelda because of how good each game is to me, I honestly don't have a Zelda game that is bad, and storytelling might not be the best, but the gameplay is so damn fun. Grand Theft Auto because they just deliver so damn good. 3 to Vice City to San Andreas, those three games are just breathtaking for it's time and even now just so goddamn good and fun to play. Metal Gear Solid because I enjoy it's story and characters a hell of a lot. Gameplay is also very fun and humorous.

    I'm unsure if I can truly vote for the best series.
     
  14. What's your favorite LoZ game? I know most will say Ocarina of Time, but not me. A Link to the Past >
    You're right though, every Zelda game has been great.

  15. Majora's Mask is my all time favorite. It's much more unique than the other games with the 3 day system, love the music, the transformations and just the dark theme of the game is so amazing in my opinion. Ocarina of Time is good, but I don't think it's better than Majora's Mask. A Link to the Past is a great game, glad that they got it out for the SNES, and I know how unpopular this will be, but Zelda 2 is a game I do enjoy. I get mad at it, but it feels great whenever you get further than before and the music in the game is awesome.
     
  16. Music is a big reason why I chose A Link to the Past actually. I prefer the art style and controls to Majora's Mask and Ocarina of Time, too.

  17. A Link to the Past is my favorite Zelda game as well mainly for the controls actually.. Ocarina of Time is a close second and Majora's Mask is 3rd.
     
  18. If I could choose multiple answers I would've chosen almost every title up there, but Halo has been rubbish since Reach, and Mario died down after the horrid Gamecube games and constant sequels.

    I'd have to say, Grand Theft Auto and Elder Scrolls. Partially because I can't think of any others but I'm sure people can agree that those games are beast.

    As for series that I would've chosen 6 years ago: Halo, Saints Row, Metal Gear Solid, Left 4 Dead, Elder Scrolls and GTA.
     
  19. Saint's Row buggered up massively with IV >.<

    GTA is always on top of my list of games, I actually played the entire game in one sitting when V came out, and I still jump on my PS3, purely out of wanting to play that game.

    But my favourite edition of GTA has to be San Andreas, amazing story. That and Vice City, III was cool because it opened the world up but story was eh. :D

    Surprised Mortal Kombat isn't on the list though, talking about pre-teen reasons to having carpal tunner ;)
     
  20. I've had more hours of fun in Saints Row 2 then I've had in 4.

    Better story
    Cooler presentation
    endless features (including a sex mini game)
    Easier driving
    better customization
    fucking planes
