Which video game do you hold in such high regard that you can't even compare it to anything else? In terms of quality, innovation, legacy, and your personal enjoyment.

What is the Citizen Kane of music?

#4 Posted by chrismafuchris (1088 posts) -

I thought that question was going to go in an entirely different direction

So you assume Radiohead is the pinnacle of music for everyone on the planet?

#6 Posted by laserbolts (5331 posts) -

Rise of the six string was pretty bad so I guess that's my Radiohead of video games.

This is not the connotation I thumbtack to Radiohead.

Journey: The Arcade Game is the Radiohead of video games, because it's based on Journey, which is the Super Mario 2 of music.

... Or something.

Yo, like, I know Radiohead is dope and all, but this is stupid.

Are you implying that Radiohead is the greatest band ever? Because I would be forced to respectfully disagree if you are.

#21 Posted by BisonHero (6668 posts) -

The Radiohead of video games is probably pre-2000 PC games, aside from incredibly well known stuff like SimCity, DOOM, Starcraft.

The common thread is that anyone who goes on about how much they like Radiohead or how much they like those games is probably a bit of a prick.

Ouch. Zing!

I don't listen to Radiohead, so I don't have an opinion on their music. But I will say that Eternal Sonata is the Chopin of video games. Just try and argue against that one!

#23 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4415 posts) -

I didn't know there were so many Radiohead haters, I think they're great but not as good as some of the fans like to think they are. If I want more abstract prog rock I'll go to Porcupine Tree first, not Radiohead.

You mean a band that released a ton of bullshit at the outset, followed by one good record, a collection of b-sides from said record that were also good, and then proceeded to slip into sucking again? Probably Assassin's Creed.

I like this answer a lot.

#28 Posted by Joeyoe31 (820 posts) -

Maybe Resident Evil? I always see Radiohead as a band that has somewhat lost it's glory although none of their albums are bad. That's how I feel about the Resident Evil series. There isn't a BAD one but there are different ones. They also love to change genres. Teehee.

A game I actually hold so high that it goes higher than every other game? Probably Okami or Dark Souls. They're arguable masterpieces. They're pretty goooood.

#29 Posted by medacris (666 posts) -

The way I see Radiohead is "something very good and left-of-field that you wouldn't think would gain mainstream popularity, but did", so, Katamari Damacy.

Kid A and Amnesiac are like, video games already in your head, MAN! (i do enjoy Radiohead, however, i wouldn't agree with them being anywhere near the pinnacle of artists)

i commend the audacity- but i've jumped a bro for less. 'kid a' is amazing.

as per the original question- i'mma say:

deus ex.

felt like a quantum leap at the time, and is probably a touch overrated. but then again, what the hell isn't.

#33 Posted by ThePickle (4186 posts) -

This was a weird way to ask that question. Radiohead is a great band, but they are not universally held as the highest point of quality, innovation, and legacy. A better choice would have been Led Zeppelin or The Beatles. Or just ask what everyone's favorite game is. Or use the search bar and see that that question has been asked about 20 times already.

Anyways, I'll pretend this question asked what the David Bowie of video games is and say Fallout 3.

#34 Posted by StarFoxA (5160 posts) -

Well, I think Radiohead's kinda alright but I can understand why other people make a big deal out of them, so I guess that game for me is Metroid Prime.

Kid A is the good record in my formulation; you are empirically correct.

With the exceptions of Space War and Pong grandfather Tennis for Two, David Bowie has been making music longer than we have been making video games. HIS ESSENCE HAS NO LABEL.

#36 Posted by Sinusoidal (1638 posts) -

The characters in Eternal Sonata are almost as whiny as Thom Yorke. Most JRPGs for that matter.

I have played the ever-lovin-crap out of Space Harrier 2 for the Genesis. Beaten it more times than I can remember. If you get too many extra lives, the little icons disappear from your screen, which freaked me out the first time.

#38 Edited by danmcn12 (86 posts) -

It'd have to be 90s radiohead then 2000s radiohead. 90s would be something like the Megaman series, classic games in a popular genre of the time that gets overrated by fans and often overlooked by others.

2000s Radiohead would be Psychonauts. Fans that overrate and talk about it for years after, to the point it gets annoying, yet both are great. Even though the game, and the music, both are "indie" or whatever, they were created by well known people in their industries.

Though everything gets "overrated" by fans.

I'm not qualified to make that judgment since I haven't seen Citizen Kane.

oh thank god. i've been conditioned by my peers to be defensive. i love 'the bends' and 'ok computer' as much as the next bloke- but the first 4 notes of the following record wash that all away.

#46 Posted by Antithesis (22 posts) -

For me it would have to be Bioshock, or Fallout 3. Everyone seems to rave about these games but I hate them, and when I tell people this they just say I don't get it.
