as well as Obsidian being known for creating rather buggy games like Fallout: New Vegas, Alpha Protocol, Neverwinter Nights 2, and KOTOR II
4 of the best games ever released, but who's counting.
If by "best games ever released" you mean top 300 then yes.
I would rank New Vegas, NWN2, and KotOR2 well above 300, personally, but that's up to taste. Considering how many genuinely great games have been released in the last couple decades, even being in the top 300 at all would be a pretty big honor.
Yes indeed! For me, top 300 or so feels just about right for those titles. Alpha Protocol doesnt qualify obviously.
However, when Chumm writes "4 of the best games ever released" it sounds like top 10-20 and that's just not even close. Obsidian is a great developer but still has a little bit left to be among the very best.
Unless, you know, you like their games? Or that is impossible? Those people like the wrong things?
Its like Jeff use to say: "I can see why people would say Halo is the best game ever. But they're wrong."
One of my favorite games of all time is Xenogears. Still, Im not foolish enough to believe its one of the best games ever released.
There is no such thing as liking the wrong things, you know that. But for a game like Alpha Protocol there is just not support enough for such an argument. Kotor2? Bit closer, wouldnt raise an eyebrow if someone ranks that as their personal top 10.
Im just trolling guys. Couldnt care less really. Good talk.
I love Xenogears but you gotta admit that it takes a huge left turn at the second disc. Its like they had this awesome RPG that looked like it could be one of the greatest ever on the first disc and then ran out of time and money. That first disc though was amazing.
