    What is your favorite Rare game?


    Banjo-Kazooie (N64) for me. Most recently Viva Pinata.

    Conker's Bad Fur Day. It was pretty bold to make a platformer WITHOUT any type of item collection.

    "uhh...Perfect Dark or Goldeneye. I wish Microsoft would throw Viva Pinata to some other dev team. Rare is too good of a developer to waste its resources on such a kiddie franchise where, frankly, I don't think the quality matters. Kids who watch that crap (sorry if you like the franchise) and want the game will get it no matter the review scores.
    "
    I don't care about franchises - I'll play anything as long as the game is good.

    Giant Bomb makes no distinction between Rare and Ultimate, which is a bit confusing. I think the best Rare game was Goldeneye. The best Ultimate game was Atic Atac.

    I hate item collector platformers, so no Banjo for me.

    Banjo Kazooie and Conker. I absolutely love Jetpac on the spectrum as well; first video game I ever played when I was a wee kid all those years ago!

    Me and my friends spent hours playing Perfect Dark multiplayer and have a fight against the Godlike Perfect bots.

    Most recently I'd say Banjo or Goldeneye for multiplayer, but the old school guy in me wants to say Cobra Triangle :).

    And a bit off topic, but I think Blast Corps is horribly under appreciated.

    Jet Force Gemini but not really.

    They need to remake that game or give it a proper sequel (meaning kick the PDZ crew off of that project if they get their hands on it) and it needs to retain it's super violent but cute style at the same time.

    My favorite game would have to be Goldeneye or Banjo Tooie.

    Banjo Kazooie was the first game to really show what the company could do in terms of originality. It's a true classic.

    Goldeneye for sure

    Viva Pinata would be next (a long way down from Goldeneye, if only because Goldeneye was so perfect). Viva Pinata looks like a kids game, sounds like one, but is not one. Looking forward to the next one heaps

    This is a tough one, because there are so many good Rare games out there.

    If I must make one choice, I'll give it to Banjo-Kazooie. It was just that damn good.

    I've 100% completed the first BK, and when they both release on XBLA I'll 100% both of them.

    Rare has made way too many amazing games (With the exception of PD Zero) but I'd have to chose Goldeneye. I spent so many hours on multiplayer

    I completely agree with what this guy said 1 year and 5 months ago. Then there's also DKC2, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, and Killer Instinct. Man, Rare used to be the greatest.
