@killem_dafoe: I consider Jak 1 to be one of the best 3D platformers of its time tbh. I really think it did what it was trying to do much better than Jak 2, which was ambitious, but flawed.

Dark Souls 2. I think Scholar of the First Sin struck a good balance with difficulty and improved the overall graphical quality, so that's the version I prefer. Plus it had all the DLC, which I don't think stands up to the quality of the DS3 DLC, but is still much more enjoyable for me than the DLC of Dark Souls and Bloodborne.

The biggest draw to me is the NG+ and bonfire "buffing." I really enjoyed just how much the game changed the more you ramped up a particular location. There's also a wide variety of covenants, all of which offer something unique, and I found playing online that this was maybe one of the more stable and enjoyable of the Souls games. The story/lore also jumped out at me more than any of the other Souls games (outside of Demon's), and I thought a lot of the characters were endearing in their own weird dumb quirky ways.

Twilight Princess.

Like everyone I played Ocarina of Time and thought it was the best thing ever. I played Majora's Mask and thought it was fucking amazing.

Then I played Windwaker(Here's where I go on a little tangent). The graphics were gorgeous, but there were so many other problems. The dungeons are extremely unmemorable. To date I can't remember any except the first one and the stealth one. The combat is probably the worst in the 3d series.

"But Qrowdyy," you say, "What about the open world? Windwaker had the most expansive open world before BoTW."

Well, random misguided Giant Bomb member, to that I would say that 90% of that open world was a flat, featureless, blue plain. Sure they tried to spruce it up with assorted mini-games while you sailed, but those got boring faaaast. Maybe I just hate sailing in games? But, that's not true I loved AC: Black Flag to death. So, imo, Windwaker has the smallest open world in a 3d zelda, because all the empty space between points of interest(land) don't count(/endrant).

So after years of adventuring in the lands of off-beat Zeldas, one good, one dissapointing, playing Twilight Princess was like coming home. Basically a modernized Ocarina, there wasn't a speck of innovation in it. Probably the only unique thing about Twilight Princess is that it has a companion character that doesn't suck(Midna is the best). Also it's PS2 quality graphics were slightly off-putting even when it first came out. What it did have, in comparison to Windwaker, was better dungeons, better combat, better exploration. Gameplay over graphics all day.

It's a Zelda ass Zelda game and there are only two 3d Zelda's to choose from if that's what you want. If you've replayed OoT a few too many times, but are still looking for that same feeling, I heartily recommend Twilight Princess

Oh boy, I got a bunch of these, my taste in video games is weird.

  • Halo: ODST is a top 3 Halo game.
  • Max Payne 3 is easily the best in the series, the gameplay is on another level entirely from any other shooter.
  • Dead Space 3 is a very good game, just not as good as the others. It's a Dark Souls 2 situation, if to a lesser degree.
  • Speaking of which, Dark Souls 2 is an outstanding game despite being easily the worst in the series.
  • Far Cry 2 is the best one in the series.
  • This one I'm not sure about, given that it's super popular anyway, but I think Metal Gear Revengeance is by far the best Metal Gear game. It's not even close for me.
  • The Witcher 2 is where the series peaked.
  • GTA4: The Lost and the Damned is the best GTA game and one of the best written games ever. Johnny Klebitz is one of the best video game protagonists. GTA5 was such a massive step backward that I'm concerned the Housers have completely lost it. Or perhaps RDR and Lost and Damned were just flukes.
  • Hotline Miami 2 has lower lows, but higher highs than Hotline Miami 1. If the game was just the Son and the Fans (and maybe Jake), it would be near perfect. I suspect it originally was just those parts, but the scope got expanded, for the worse.
  • Morrowind is the best Elder Scrolls game. It's a common opinion, but since Skyrim is such a monolith in this industry, I think it fits.
  • Resident Evil Revelations 2 is the 2nd best resident evil game (but I haven't played 7 yet.)

Mass Effect (original) and Mass Effect Andromeda. The original game did not have the technical quality of #2-3, playing on the Xbox 360 there were moments where the game would bug out and just freeze. Apart from that I still think it's the best game in the series, by far. Andromeda had a large number of technical issues on the regular PS4, but it was considerably more fun and interesting to play than #2-3.

Assassin's Creed Rogue, Syndicate and Unity. Playing on console I did not experience that many technical issues, and they still have the same unique "world immersion" the early games had. It's one of the things that have always attracted me to the Assassin's games. Syndicate and Unity in particular, I would count among my favourites in the franchise, despite their technical flaws.

Forza 3. People complained that it was too clinical, that it didn't have much of a personality. I agree that of all the Forza games, this is the one that feels closest to a PC sim, where there's no filler, just racing. Perhaps Turn10 felt inspired by the Simbin games, who knows. It certainly doesn't have the feel of the other Forza games. It's still my favourite though, since I prefer this presentation over what the latter games have.

Gran Turismo Sport. Despite being announced as a multiplayer game, which logically implies you need an internet connection in order to play the game, they have bulked up the single-player content significantly (all of it free). While many consider it the lesser in the series, right now it is actually feeling like a "regular" Gran Turismo game to me. While it's hard to beat GT 6, I think GT Sport is on the way of doing that for me.

Far Cry 2. The side-missions were boring, and the save system on console anoying. The rest of the game however, still has an impact on me to this day, perhaps it's the setting or the topic, but it's still one of the most memorable FPS games I have ever played. Far Cry 3-5 are all good games, better in most aspects, but they don't have the same impact on me.

Grid Autosport. The mainstream didn't really like it that much, since perhaps it didn't have the same Need-For-Speed feel as the original game. However, as a motorsports game I think they did a great job with it. Meaning if you actually follow motorsports on TV or elsewhere, this is a better game for you than the other Grid games, ... although I still dislike the narrative approach.

Dirt 4. While the PC version seems to have a few issues, according to the Steam pages, my console version works really well. To me this game is as good as the first Dirt game, which so far has been my favourite in the franchise. Yes Dirt Rally was fun, but there was so little content in that game, certainly not worth the hefty pricetag. Dirt 4 has an abundance of content and gameplay that can be as technical as you want. It feels like a worthy successor to the first game.

Assassins Creed Revelations is the best AC game in the franchise, having the most robust and varied gameplay mechanics and systems. Ironically people say that Origins is the best AC game to date, yet it’s barely an AC game to be honest. They basically made an AC game for people that never liked these games to begin with, which is kinda odd.

I've seen a few of mine repeated here already. But Jak 1 is one of my favorite games of all time and I prefer it over it's sequels (those are good too though).

I enjoy DMC4 more than 3. Though, if I were to compare my hype level first playing 3 and first playing 4, the answer would be different. But with the test of time I just enjoy the combat system of 4. And I think Nero is a really fun character to play as.

I vastly prefer Mass Effect 1 over it's sequel. The universe felt expansive and novel. The plot was intriguing and huge in scope. 2 by comparison felt very small and linear with less focus on world, and more focus on characters. Which in my book is a negative.

It's hard to argue past Witcher 3, but back when 2 came out I was firmly one of the people who prefered the original. My view on the franchise is more or less that they first made a game with a huge scope and ambition, but couldn't follow through on it. Learning from that lesson they scoped out the sequel in a more humble fashion but polished it as much as they could. And then for the third game they decided to just say fuck it and succesfully both kept and ate their cake through sheer unhealthy man-hours. Either way, the ambition of the first game has always stuck with me, and I was pretty disappointed by the linearity of 2.

I've never quite been able to figure out where the majority lands on this, so maybe it's not applicable. But MGS3 is my favorite game in the franchise by a long shot. I think as a complete stand-alone package it's an amazing game in it's own right, and the way it influences the overall Metal Gear universe is almost just a nice bonus.

I actually have no idea if this is a common opinion or not, but my favorite Splinter Cell is Chaos Theory. To me, that was the perfection of the formula with a fantastic toolset for stealth, great levels, amazing music and a pretty solid story. I've played just about every single one of them, but none have gotten close to dethroning that game for me.

And lastly, I vastly prefer XCOM 2 over Enemy Unknown. I can't tell if my impression that I hold an unpopular opinion on that is just because of the bombcast or not though.

Agreed on Max Payne 3. Easily one of my favorite games of that generation, and I far prefer it to 1/2.

Not sure where exactly it ranks (I know it reviewed well but I never hear it mentioned): Splinter Cell Blacklist is the best SC game since Chaos Theory, and might even be my second favorite from the series (and I'm an enormous Splinter Cell fan).

Dark Souls 2 is great (I think its world-building is awesome and I love the feel of the combat), same with Dragon Age 2 (most people covered why—love the small scale, more grounded story it tells).

Far Cry 2 is still far and away the most interesting and memorable Far Cry.

There's definitely more. GTAV is my favorite GTA, for example. But that's probably it for ones I'd "ride or die" with.

*EDIT* OH. And Diablo 1 is still the best Diablo. I replay that game (with the Beelzebub mod) yearly. I love the structure of it—the whole slow descent into hell thing—and the atmosphere is unmatched by 2/3.

Devil May Cry 2. Look, it's not that much worse than DMC1 in terms of gameplay, you can totally beat the game just using the guns without ever engaging in the melee combat but that's not my willpower's problem. You know what it does have, though?

Dante fighting a hyperbeam firing building and Dante shoots darkness incarnate (Satan? I have no idea) in the head in the dumbest way possible.

It's not the best DMC, but it's so hilariously stupid I love it. The first time I played it I was shocked. Every cutscene is so freaking weird that I dunno how people hate it this much. Well, I did learn from the new DMC that people take this series very seriously so maybe that's it? It's a fun experience.

@zeik: Jak 2 is the highest critically rated in the franchise, and I've always heard people talk more highly of it over 3. I think the criticisms regarding it going a more "edgy" route is something that happened in retrospect years after the fact. A lot of games were doing that back then. I was also like 14 when it came out, right in that demographic, so I didn't really have another perspective, haha. It was a weird departure for sure, but it was the kind of bold decision that you would never see today. I think I was just really into it back then. I definitely think the original is weakest of the trilogy. It's a fun game but not much more than a relatively simple Mario 64 clone.

Where? I was a pretty big fan of the Jak and Daxter games back in the day and I cannot recall anyone preferring 2 over 3. Throughout the years, general consensus on Jak 2 has continually gone down, while people have thought better and better of the first game, and the third to an extent. You might be able to find a few Metacritic scores that place 2 higher than 3, but those numbers don't really mean all that much when we're talking about a PS2 game in 2018.

But while we're on the topic of Jak and Daxter, Daxter was a damn good PSP game. I remember enjoying The Precursor Legacy, too, but I never finished it.

Ninja Gaiden 2 (XB360) it's not as good as NGB but it's fun, dumb and messy in all the right ways. It feels like the Contra: Hard Corps of Ninja Gaiden in how stupidly over the top everything is when compared to the first game. I especially like that Ryu has got to the point where he is eating the raw reagents that make healing potions because he needs a bigger hit.

I think 1 holds up fantasticly but even so it has always been a hate it or love it game. Being a top down mousclicker the combat is from another school entierly so i really cant say much based on your W3 experience.

I don't mind Wind Waker. I agree with you that the dungeons are weak, which pushes it pretty low on my personal ranking of Zelda games. (But Zelda games are generally better than other games, so this is still a good place to be.) I also think it uses its visuals as a bit of a crutch, plenty of people seem willing to overlook weak content or annoyances for the slick cel shading. But I tend to sorta disagree with you on the exploration: whilst there is a lot of blue nothingness and the content is very regimented into an island per square, the act of navigating the seas and figuring out an island or a random sea altercation with enemies or whatever is really satisfying. I also think Windfall Island has some of the more endearing townsfolk and minigame content in any Zelda game.

---

That being said, I think the bigger problem I have with WW is that it was the wrong Zelda game for its time.

The hype surrounding the new consoles circa 2000 was all about this massive leap in visual fidelity. It was an era of fanboys poring over hardware specs and talking about polycounts like they had any idea what they were talking about. Sony had MGS2; Microsoft was entering the console war and had Halo. Zelda needed to be Nintendo's trump card; Nintendo fanboys were waiting for a hyper-realistic, gritty, *edgy*successor to OoT, the most critically acclaimed epic adventure of all time, so they could talk mad shit next time they ran into the Sony or Microsoft kids in the playground.

Against that backdrop, with console manufacturer levels of money at stake, Nintendo decided to get weird. Wind Waker would go on to undersell, the GCN would barely eke out 20 million units sold as the PS2 confirmed Sony's dominance of the console market, and Nintendo would never bring another "mainstream" console to market ever again.

And yes all the edgy fanboy shit was/is asinine. That's the entire point. Nintendo misread the room: gaming sentiment was in its awkward teen years, gamers were in endless pissing matches about which console had more graffixxx. Wind Waker was poor marketing. It was impossible to defend that game against the other thirteen-year-olds in the playground, so Nintendo lost market share. If self-preservation was at all a priority for Nintendo, then they should not have made that game at that time.

Mass Effect Andromeda. I played the game about eight months after release, so the hot mess had mostly been cleaned up by then. Despite not being interested in the story when I heard the pitch before launch, I was won over pretty quickly once I gave it a chance. I think the new universe let them get back to the sense of discovery the first game did so well. I ended up liking most of the crew as much or more than previous crew members.

I'm kinda sad most ppl are taking "lesser entry in a series" to just mean "any game not considered the best in a franchise." I was really talking about specific ones that kinda got shafted harshly or widely considered lower tier.

A game like Mass Effect 1 just doesn't belong in this conversation. Any convo about the ME series will devolve into which is better, 1 or 2? (The answer is 1) ME3 is a good pull, ME:A even more so if you like it.

Dragon Age 2, Majora's Mask, Daxter, or AC3 are the types of picks I'm talking about.

I will go to bat for FF8 knowing that it's maybe actually a terrible game with some real pacing issues but it's just fun. It had some really great set pieces and honestly I really enjoyed its anime bullshit story.

I think the consensus is that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies is one of the weaker entries in the series too but I wound up really liking it. I think Athena's a great character, though she totally got the shaft in the sequel, and the game has an amazing final twist. As I was playing through the game I thought it a pretty mediocre entry in the series but figuring out the final twist about 30mins before the reveal and being right about it was an amazing experience because it was such a crazy twist that I was convinced I was wrong.

Command & Conquer: Renegade This is one of my all time favorite online-multiplayer shooters. The way they translated RTS mechanics into an FPS surprisingly worked really well. You could purchase and pilot all sorts of famous GDI/NOD vehicles and you could purchase individual characters from the series with varying loadouts.

Like a traditional C&C game the point is to destory the other teams base, by any means possible: Low-Orbit Ion Cannon/Nuke, squad of Mammoth tanks, an APC loaded with C4, and or literally just shoot the building with a gun.
