Top 5 Gaming Series
Posted 13 November 2012 - 13:59
I'm going to post a "Top 5" thread each day this week to get discussions going. I'd like to see top 5s being proposed and discussed.
First up is: Top 5 Gaming Series.
What're your top 5 gaming series? These are the series of games, "franchises" if you will, that have given you the most fun over the years.
They may be impossible to fault, or "a bit shit now" but worth a try to see if they live up to the older games.
Try to avoid individual games, this thread is about series. The individual games thread will come later.
Here are mine;
The music, the tracks, the speed. I've played them all and been a fan since Wipeout 2097. Wipeout HD wasn't as great as the older ones, but the PSP games were excellent for that platform.
Tough to position this one, I loved Blood Money and really liked Silent Assassin, but missed the original and Contracts completely. Will make it up with Absolution though, look for a review on SPOnG soon.
3) God of War
What can I say? Kratos is the angriest Spartan since Gerard Butler strapped on a skirt and kicked a man into a hole. The action and the combos were always spectacular, but with GoWIII the visuals became epic!
2) Assassin's Creed
I was one of the few people who actually liked the first game, but that grew to some sort of man-love for the second and third. Revelations had more "make work" than I'd have liked, but I'm looking forward to getting my teeth into ACIII and Liberation too if I can find the time.
1) Tomb Raider
Signing, Lara! Lara! Lara! The first game I bought with my PlayStation in 1997, a few years late, but what a great game. I've played, if not completed, them all and enjoyed most of them, although Angel of Darkness was pretty poor. Again, I'm looking forward to the next one which looks like Lost meets Lara, but in a good way!
OK, that's my top 5, what about yours? Or would you like to poke fun at my miserable choices?

Hitman is a good choice. 47 is a Bamf.

I don't want to think who many hour I've sunk into these games over their time, the original Diablo brought out my inner magpie and the search for the shiniest loot near stopped
4) Mario (Bros)
Doesn't really need an explanation, every single one of these games have been a delight to play, some more than others but each one has brought something new to the table
The sheer amount of fun I've had playing these, even from the originals cements this in my top 5 with ease.
2) Mario Kart
Social gaming at it's best, nothing comes close to bringing friends together and then making them enemies after the first red shell!
The love I have for this series borders on indecent, the complexity of the levels is matched by the beautifully crafted story and character(s)
