You people are running my idea into the ground Activision style!
Just kidding, i like these threads. Especially since after 4 of them the choices are pretty varied.
I haven't played any of the games on that list but i suppose i would like Dino Crisis 2 the best since i liked the first one and also like old school Resident Evil games and such.
In your honorable mentions my vote would go to either Resident Evil 4 or Dark Souls. Mercenaries 1 was also awesome. Some of the biggest fun i've had just fucking around in an open world game.
@pr1mus: yeah mercs 1 holy crap played that game for months loved it. Actually you might not like dino crisis 2 because of the drastic change they made. Dino 1 was straight up resident evil with dinosaurs. #2 was almost like a crazy action game within the thin wrapper of resident evil.
@mosespippy: have you played the 2nd one? It's also pretty great. It's basically valkyria persona chronicles 4.
I played a little over 300 hours of the Japanese version of the second one, 200 hours of the English version and 160 hours of the third one. As you can probably tell, I spent some time unemployed a few years back.
VC3 made some nice improvements and was also harder. I haven't been able to beat a single 5 star difficulty mission.
I contemplated it for some minutes, and I also found this to be my answer.
This was going to be my answer too but then I thought...okay I'll answer something, Valkyria Chronicles was pretty cool and I wish I played more of it.
Yakuza 4 is the only game on your list that I've played. I've played all the Yakuza games that have come out in America.
Yakuza 2 has a story that doesn't fall apart at the very end and you fight tigers. As cool as Akiyama is he doesn't make up for Yakuza 4's weaknesses.
Getting in on this action inspired by @pr1mus before the moderators start getting cranky about it.
Well...I guess the time is now because I'm feeling a bit cranky about how many of these threads are popping up. They don't generate much meaningful discussion, and it's time to cut them off now before they spiral totally out of control.
As an alternative, if someone would prefer to make one thread to discuss everyone's favorite games of all time, that might be fine. You could also maybe spend some time to generate a longer blog that explains what makes some games your favorites. These short little polls though are just getting flat out spammy.
