|Top !0 List For The Year Of 2003
||[Dec. 24th, 2003|04:14 am]
1. legend of zelda: the wind waker|
what can i say about this game? i loved ocarina of time and majora's mask like my children. the gameplay is great, the cel shading is wonderful (fuck you if you disagree) and the camera never sucks, cause at the push of a button you can correct it. nintendo has always known what they were doing with zelda games (with the exception of the adventures of link... i own it... but i hate it) and i have such faith in them at this point, that i doubt they will ever go wrong. zelda 0wnz you f001.
2. final fantasy tactics advance
allow me to play the square fanboy that i am by saying "im a fucking square fanboy, and i love almost every final fantasy/(insert square title here) ive ever played.
but really tactics advance was the biggest reason i even look at a gameboy advance... not tht there arent other awesome games, but tactics is engrossing, and complicated. all i want in a game.
3. Xenosaga: episode 1
you know... this game really frustrated me... never have i died so many times trying to beat an rpg. but the end was relatively satisfying and really made me hunger for the next installment. which is what we all want from an rpg series... a reason to keep looking for the next title. xenosaga episode 2 is one of my most highly anticipated games for next year. the story was deep and involving (i almost cried twice times) and the gameplay (while hard to get a handle on in the beginning) was totally involving... i know i could play that game again, just because by the time i figured out exactly what i was doing i was already half way through. while not up to the graphics par of a final fantasy title... the overall seriousness of the story, and reality of the blood really made this game stand out as a more intelligant game than most out there.
4. need for speed: underground
ill never buy this game..... ever. i fucking hate racing games.. they bore me to fucking tears. but this game really caught my attention... if i EVER buy a racing game... this will be it. it has AMAZING graphics, endless custimization (which any rpg fan loves) and an awesome sense of speed and control. to reiterate... i FUCKING hate racing games... and i hate ea for making me like this one so damn much.
5. soul calibur 2
i really dont feel i need to explain why this game is on here. i do however feel i need to explain why it isnt number one.... because i like rpg's and need for speed was that good.
other than that, soul calibur 2 is one of the greatest games EVER MADE. i hadnt had so much fun playing a fighting game since i learned how to decapitate people in mortal kombat oh so many years ago, and that says a lot cause im pretty jaded.
this game is perfect in every way. if there is one flaw, its that that fag rapheal isin the game.... and that really isnt a flaw... there is always that person you hate in every fighting game... and rapheal is it. so honestly... it has no flaws... even if you hate fighting games, youll love soul calibur 2... this is the king queen prince god of all fighting games... fuck your tekken.... fuck your capcom vs.... fuck your guilty gear and your mortal kombat.... soul calibur 2 owns them all
6. metal arms: glitch in the system
this is one of the most underated games ive ever come across... what the fuck people... this is a great game... it has cursing robots for christsake... it may look kiddy, but this game has got brass balls... it plays great.. the concepts are great and the level design is top-notch. why people dont buy this game is a very big mystery to me. honestly... it would be worht 60 dollars if they asked for it... and i dont say that a lot.
all you could ever possibly want in a strategy rpg... in a "different than final fantasy tactics" kind of way. wacky sense of humor... lots of charm... great story line.. tsunami bomb... team and combo attacks... this game is amazing on so many levels... i cant even describe them. if you like yourself... get this game.. you will be sucked into a helpless void of cursingat your tv... and laughing at the same time... to quote the prennies "d000000000000000d"
8. star wars: KOTOR
i dont even own an xbox and this game is amazing... it is one of the many reasons i must own one... the fact that you choose your path alone makes this game replayable, dark jedi... light jedi... so enticing to choose both.. a must have... and a great game
9. prince of persia
youd think this game would be higher... hmmm... its that damn rpg thing again... they are my favorite games... so everything else gets pushed down a little bit.. the graphics in this game are amazing.. graphics so good... they suprised me.. the prince moves so fluidly you have to pick your chin off the floor many many times. the matrix cant even pretend to duplicate this guys moves... and the ability to reverse time?! shit man... i jumped into a spike pit (uses magical sands of time) no i didnt! totally brings a new element to gameplay. the ability to not die without using a cheat code!
10. crimson skies
again... i dont own an xbox, but i have spent many hours at work playing this game... i cant help it... i dont even like flight simulators and i love this game... it looks, plays, feels great... i cant think of anything about this game that bothers me... you unlock planes... can blow up just about everything... i dont even know how to explain my joy playing this game... it rules.
-----the ONLY reason final fantasy X-2 isnt on here is because i havent played it yet. i would tell you why but its a long story, and i dont want to get into it. i would have put in on here, but i feel that it would be dishonest to place a game i havent at least played 3 hours on. otherwise (knowing square) it would probably be tied for 1st with zelda.. and that says a lot.
ratchet and clank:going commando
beyond good and evil
rainbow six 3
star wars: jedi academy
tony hawk underground
cant think of anything else
WORST OF 2003 (or.. the bottom 5)
1. enter the matrix
fuck you for thinking this was a good idea... it plays AWFUL. just plain awful. its so frickin glitchy a turrets kid would hate it. seriously.. this game ticks like a clock.
i really wanted to like this game... really... damn you capcom for doing this to me... the combat looked so good... the graphics looked sharp... everything about this game looked so sweat... and then it stunk... stunk so bad i only touch it i my store to move it... and i wear gloves. i pray they make a sequal becuase it deserves to be a good game.
okay okay... it wasnt really THAT awful... but it gets so boring after 30 min.. it might as well be the worst game ever cause the only thing i didnt forget about this game is how not fun it was.
4. any wrestling game
seriously.. only meatheads, dumbfucks, and total idiots play these games. they are so
a.) homo- erotic it isnt even funny
b.) THE SAME FUCKING GAME AS LAST YEAR! "OH.. BUT KAIN DOESNT WEAR A MASK ANYMORE!" SO FUCKING WHAT!!!!! IS THAT WORTH 50 FUCKING DOLLARS? NO! GO BUY SOUL CALIBUR 2.
5. tomb raider
i never liked laura croft, i never liked tomb raider, and the movies made me dislike angelina jolie. oh... and the game sucks too. youd think being the first ps2 tomb raider, eidos might try a little harder... nope... sorry. if eidos hadnt made soul reaver and timesplitters, id call them a useless company... they release more crap than thq, which says a lot cause thq makes all those afformentioned "wrastlin'" games.. and all the godawful nickelodeon games. NO SOUP FOR YOU EIDOS!
and that pretty much wraps it up.. i left out a few games, but im not staring at the walls in my game store, so its easy to forget a few...
id like to see what you all think.. so post some feedback.
CANT WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR!
