Default The Last of Us is the best game ever made

This video perfectly explains why the game is so great.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKzVwbs-lsg

Only thing I disagree with him about is listen mode...the game is better when you turn it off.

1. TLOU
2. Red Dead Redemption
3. Metal Gear Solid V
4. Gears of War
5. Metal Gear Solid 3
6. Metal Gear Solid 2
7. Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
8. The Witcher 3
9. Mass Effect 2
10. Crash Bandicoot 3 (for childhood memories, and it's still fun to play)

I know there's a lot of modern games there, but I've been gaming since the late 90's. The harsh reality is that most games from the PS1 era aged like milk. Only a few platformers like Crash and Spyro have stood the test of time.

Embarrassingly, I've never played Resident Evil 4. I know, it's like being that guy who hasn't seen Pulp Fiction. Also, I've never been a Nintendo guy.

Notice how many stealth games are there

Most overrated genre

They get marked up simply for being in that genre

The opposite is said for FPS

Back in the mid 2000's, Halo was dominating FPS, while so called sony "Halo killers" were popping up everywhere... It has turned to today where the FPS genre is just absolutely over-saturated with titles, all essentially ripping off earlier games.

MGS V is not a top 3 game of all time, let alone top 3 in its own series

I can't rank them in order, so I'll just name my top 10.

Uncharted 2
Red Dead Redemption
San Andreas
GoldenEye 007
The Last Of Us

Super Mario 3
Mario Kart Racing
Uncharted 3
Max Payne
Baldur Gate's II


God of War, Halo: Combat Evolved, Arkham Asylum, MGS 2, Phantom Pain, Witcher 3, GTA V, Vice City, Arkham City, Mass Effect 2, Max Payne 3, Company of Heroes, and Gran Turismo.

The first five are set in stone.

Golden eye above Halo?

Is this real life?

Golden eye aged like ****ing milk

Halo has aged like wine. Halo CE is just as good as it was back then.

Halo has aged like wine?
Then why do the scores keep dropping?

DRUM ROLL PLEASE

Halo - 97
Halo 2 - 95
Halo 3 - 94
Reach - 91
Halo 4 - 87

Ouch.

GoldenEye 007 (for its time) was simply a better game than Halo CE.
Everyone played it. No other game existed for most when 007 came out bro. Don't you remember playing multiplayer with your friends (up to 100 kills), winner takes 50 bucks. It was an epic game, far more memorable than Halo CE to me.

Halo as in Halo CE

It has aged a lot better than Golden eye

This is fact

The control scheme of Golden eye.... Sheesh

Once Halo came and revolutionized FPS on console, there was no going back

Their impacts as games can be argued either way

The bottom line is Golden eye came out in a very weak era

Halo started the beginning of modern style dual analog controlled FPS on console

It's the main reason why it has aged so well and Golden Eye hasn't

Halo already has started to show signs of age, as the modern shooter has become faster paced.... But it will never feel as aged as Golden Eye... That's a guarantee

"Goldeneye showed that FPS could be done on consoles, but halo showed it could be done really well."

I actually kind of agree with gif on this one. Golden Eye aged like shit, while the first 3 Halo games are still fun.

Older GTA games didn't age that well either.

Uhm, so LittleBigPlanet is better than Zelda too I guess?

GoldenEye was on N64 and Halo was on Xbox & X360.

Golden Eye is part of the era of games that simply look and play like complete shit in this day and age. After the 5 minutes it takes for the nostalgia to wear off, you just want to turn it off. This is the case for most non platformers from that time period. On the other hand, I think someone could play Halo CE for the first time and have fun with it.

I guess games like Deus Ex and Thief still hold up okay, but I never did much gaming on the PC.
