Mine is Kingdom Hearts...what is yours?

#2 Posted by Zenogiasu (193 posts) -

So strange that it's been six years since Kingdom Hearts II. One of my tops would be KH as well. Others would be:

  • Pikmin (though I suppose we're about to get a new one)
  • Prince of Persia (I know there's been more since last generation's trilogy, but y'know)

The Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank games were what I considered my favorite series last generation, though for a single game the first Metroid Prime is the best game of last generation.

Interest in franchises for me sorta come and go, I get really into something for a while and then move on. I don't think I could just pick one series from any generation.

I did really like those Prince of Persia games I guess, Jak & Daxter were really cool with just lots of stuff and both of those Maximo games were great in their own ways.

Metroid Prime was pretty damn good.

Timesplitters, Prince of Persia, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (3 ⁊ 4, that is).

#6 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Persona, probably.

#7 Posted by probablytuna (3732 posts) -

Metal Gear Solid.

#8 Posted by RustySanderke (117 posts) -

Devil May Cry

#9 Posted by RecSpec (3853 posts) -

TimeSplitters

#10 Posted by Sackmanjones (4742 posts) -

Hmm. Good question. I guess technically loved the re series and re4 was such a great game that it made me love it even more. Um I actually really got attached to the splinter cell games. Although a never played chaos theory (but I have it on steam now thanks to sale). Nothin else jumps to mind. Maybe devil may cry?

#11 Posted by Sackmanjones (4742 posts) -
@Sackmanjones I know you said one but I like to mix it up!
#12 Edited by falserelic (5470 posts) -

Resident Evil used to be my favorite.

#13 Posted by Yummylee (22067 posts) -

Probably still Resident Evil. RE4 (despite my grievances, I still admit that it's a fantastic game), the REmake, RE0, the first Outbreak--which is one of my favourite RE games in fact--Dead Aim wasn't so bad, and Veronica X was also still OK.

After RE, it would have been MGS. I loved me a lot of MGS2 & MGS3 back in those days.

#14 Posted by Max422 (32 posts) -

Castlevania series.

#15 Posted by Jay444111 (2441 posts) -

I want Dark Cloud to come back... what would I do for a damn third game!

#16 Posted by Sean2206 (264 posts) -

Definitely Kingdom Hearts I love that series. I'm almost pushed to buy a 3DS for Dream,Drop,Distance and I was really bummed when those rumors of a collection were shot down. The first two games were great and I liked all the spin offs in some way or another. I want a Kingdom Hearts 3 already especially after what Birth By Sleep suggests.

#17 Posted by Turambar (6813 posts) -

Persona / SMT in general.

#18 Posted by Dagbiker (6978 posts) -
@Jay444111 Darkcloud was good in theory, and even now I kinda want to play dark cloud 2 and play with the timestream. Or take some pictures and invent some crap. But actualy playing the game was not fun.
#19 Edited by Superkenon (1461 posts) -

I'd say Persona, but even as sub-series of Shin Megami Tensei, it goes further back than the last generation. Granted, Persona "3" and beyond is practically its own thing.

Speak for yourself, brah. I actually started playing both games again this year, and found that they're still good fun. There could serve to be less floors per dungeon (kind of a normal complaint I have for random dungeon games), but other than that, they hold up pretty well. Messing with those robot parts is still more fun than it ought be.

I still want to see a proper sequel to Dark Cloud 2, but I dunno if that can happen anymore. Even though Level-5 is doing alright.

#20 Posted by Cyrus_Saren (536 posts) -

Metal Gear Solid, Devil May Cry, Resident Evil... hard to choose just one.

#21 Posted by Turambar (6813 posts) -

Oh, god, how did I forget.  Super Robot Wars.  Alpha 3 and Z are two of the best god damn games in the franchise.
 
  

#22 Edited by NMC2008 (1237 posts) -

Ninja Gaiden, Final Fantasy, Splinter Cell, Burnout, Silent Hill, Resident Evil(didn't like RE4 too much though), Metal Gear Solid

#23 Posted by Grand (53 posts) -

The only one to look forward too has been KH honestly. Back in the day of the PS1, the previous generation, there were a lot of good platformers to look forward to and old FF games when they were, you know, FRIGGING EPIC. Now games are made with just too little content and there are few sequels to look forward to for any reason other than everyone else is playing them.

I have to agree. The funny thing is that for years I thought KH would be terrible, that it was for kids. I went to buy a game one night, I asked the clerk for a "Good PS2 RPG" and he immediately said "Kingdom Hearts". I bought it immediately and haven't regretted that decision. I do regret waiting as long as I did.(I barely had enough time to finish before KH2 launched) Good memories.

#25 Posted by Red (5995 posts) -

Persona or KotOR. Each game in those franchises has incredible characters and story, and ingrained countless memories into my head.

#26 Posted by Vexxan (4623 posts) -

Persona and Kingdom Hearts.

#27 Posted by Hunter5024 (5821 posts) -

Probably the 2 persona ps2 games, or Kingdom Hearts. I didn't game very much last gen.

#28 Posted by Revan_NL (345 posts) -

Metal Gear Solid, KOTOR and Resident Evil (because of RE4)

#29 Posted by JJOR64 (19023 posts) -

For new IP? It would be Kingdom Hearts for me.

#30 Posted by AjayRaz (12441 posts) -

probably grand theft auto

#31 Posted by Alkaiser (367 posts) -

If it counts, Shin Megami Tensai. Nocturne is probably my favorite PS2 game, and the Digital Devil Saga games were pretty good too.

#32 Posted by MentalDisruption (1645 posts) -

Tough choice but I'm going to go with Jak and Daxter.

#33 Posted by pyromagnestir (4327 posts) -

GTA, MGS, Kotor

#34 Posted by fantasyfreak07 (66 posts) -

A three way tie between Final Fantasy, GTA, and Persona.

Metroid Prime was the best last generation, in my opinion anyway (by the way does IMO stand for In my opinion?)

Persona and Metal Gear Solid.

#37 Edited by Seppli (10251 posts) -

Just because I want to see another one...

Shadow of Rome (Video)

Why Capcom? Why didn't you iterate? Oh champions of endless iteration? Why? Just do another one with the same basic story. A Roman warhero disgraced, thrown into the arena. Rising through the ranks in brutal gladitorial battle. Inciting a slave riot. Meeting a tragic end, and glory, for freedom.

Instant classic.

#38 Posted by FilipHolm (669 posts) -

Metal Gear Solid, Prince of Persia. I guess that's the two that I spent most time with.

#39 Posted by Yummylee (22067 posts) -

@Seppli: Indeed, such a fantastic game. At this point I'd be happy if they would just at least release a digital HD version or something.

Ugh - I'd rather not be able to play it again. Killed two dualshock pads playing it back in the day. And never finished it because of that. I kinda pushed a shoulderbutton too hard in that game, it always got stuck.

Then again - bring it on! Totally worth the 60 bucks for a new gamepad!

#41 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11309 posts) -

I really like Twilight Princess and Wind Waker, so I'm going to say The Legend of Zelda.

@Seppli: That game's combat is brilliant. I could've done without the stealth sections though.

There were some pretty good gladiator games last generation, I think my favorite would be Gladius. I've always thought this was a great setting for games but I'm struggling to think of any for current consoles.
