    Final Fantasy 7 just might be the worst game to even be mentioned in a debate about the best games of all time. It's not even a good JRPG.

    Nah. ME2 stars in nearly every fucking "Top whatever" games list everywhere on earth. It needs to be beaten into the ground like the piece of shit it is.

    I enjoyed ME1, but even if it is a bag of wank it still never gets the praise ME2 does.

    This list is mainly to shoot down shithouses on other forums.

    Who gives a fuck what sites like IGN or RPS have on their top lists, only Codex matters.

    ME1 is garbage and it is on our top RPG list.

    What the fuck?
    It's a detective game man, not GTA, what were you expecting?

    Slow, ponderous and self-indulgent is something you can easily lay at the feet of the 1st game.
    But on 3 that criticism fall short and is retarded, given how fast-paced and campy the game is.

    For casual audiences it's their version of Fallout, that game they played has kids that blew their mind, so now it has become a sacred cow.
    One aspect that the game does very well, is that it posses a really good sense of adventure.

    The campaigns of Fire Red, Emerald, SS/HG are some of the more entertaining among jRPG's, and their gameplay systems (specially SS/HG) are deceptively complex and really well designed.

    Never played any other aside from Path of Radiance, and for that one I can say you're wrong.

    Also the same reason as OoT and also FF7. The difference being that FF7 is bad, even by jRPG standards, while CT is one of the best jRPG's.

    MGS5 has little story. And MGS3 has perfect balance between it's gameplay and campy cutscennes. And both have excellent gameplay and AI (and 3 has a very good campgain).
    And while a bad game, it took balls to pull off the stunt he did with MGS2. But still, yeah Kojimbo is a hack.

    Mortal Kombat 9 exists.

    This guy gets it.

    :thumbsup:

    Tired of everyone always praising Ultima IX and Might and Magic 9...

    Sure they're seminal games in their own right, but that doesn't mean they will ever reach Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods status.

    I've not played No Truce with the Disco Dancing Furry Fuckers, but because it's so new we've not had years of it been hailed as great by every dog & his man, so one for a future potential list but not this one this year.

    This is essentially "everything I don't like sucks / all pigs must die" kind of thread. Totally mental. Very nice. Keep it up.

    :salute: to everyone who mentioned Bioshock.
    Definitely the series that exemplifies mindless sheeple worship for me. BS1, thrice dumbed-down before release, then further degenerated with BS3, yet somehow praised as a "smart game". With total nonsense for story that's supposed to be the main draw. With braindead level design (with a quest arrow!) that's somehow considered part of the Looking Glass legacy. With mind-bogglingly bad mechanics (2-weapon limit + permanent upgrades), balance (ammo economy in BS3, harvesting vs saving sisters) and pacing (research minigames, hours of PipeDream). With shit enemies, weapons and encounter design. With misleading marketing and lasting damage on the industry. Eh, I could go on. Decline incarnate.

    Banjo Kazzoie (or whatever it's called) is a fucking joke. I pity the kids whose childhood memories are in any way associated with this garbage.

    Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3 are garbage 16-bit era graphicswhore fodder with eurotrash level design that pioneered the collectathon abomination. A shit stain in Nintendo's resume, basically.

    Undertale, IDK why it got so much praise it basically recycled Mother2 that brought nothing new, the only thing I liked about it was the soundtrack.
    ME2, Again IDK why people call that game an RPG, it is a fucking shooter and not a good one in my opinion.
    Post Call of Duty 2 games in the franchise.
    WoW, not only did they rape their own lore with shit like TIME TRAVEL but I never felt it was engaging.
    Dragon Age Inquisition
    Fallout 3 and 4 for many reasons
    God of war, It makes for a movie like experience with all the QTE but I don't see it being a game
    Skyrim, mediocre Morrowind that only got saved by the modding community
    Uncharted series
    Nier Automata, it is a good game in my opinion but it should not be part of TOP 50 games lists
    Divinity Original Sin, even all patched up
    Into the Breach, nice game but overrated
    Civ 5&6, They made Civ into a boring game even with the expansions. Also AI is retarded.
    Elite: Dangerous, it is a nice game but gets super boring ounce you grind the ships you want.
    Zelda: Majora's Mask
