    Naw fair. That's a very skewed list; not treating different genres equally.

    My personal favorite is Medal of Honor (but I'm not a big gamer).

    HL2 for sure.

    Only the first 4-5 really count.

    I've played Halo 2 and wasn't thoroughly impressed by it. The gameplay wasn't that impressive in my opinion, the graphics are slightly better, but there wasn't anything new added to the single player, no bot match with extra maps, there was limited customization, no statistics to show how many aliens you've killed so far.

    HL2 is the best game I have played so far second best was HL1

    Not much of a gamer but was waiting for HL2 to come out

    best new game you mean, because none of those are definitely not the best games of all time. But from that list id have to say Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. :smile:

    What--- The thing about halo 2 is it takes about of week of playing before the gameplay starts to make sense especially when your still thinking its halo 1. With the additon of dual wielding halo 2 has multiplied the best multiplayer game of all time by 10. The sword at first seems completly unfair, but once you learn to defend against it it becomes fair. The campaign mode aka single player has been completly revamped... you play as masterchief and as an elite. The cut scenes were godly. Also they have added skulls to the single player that give you special ablities... you can even get the scarab gun! other cheats were invisibility flying, and many other possiblities. Its graphics improved to what the xbox could handel. Overall halo 2 is amazing, and I would have to rate it above everything including half-life 2 which is so dependent on that damn gravity gun.

    Where is FarCry or Unreal Tournament 04?
  10. Dec 5, 2004 #9
    TES III: Morrowind. But out of that list, I'm choosing MGS3.
  11. Dec 5, 2004 #10
    Ninja Gaiden, come one people, don't like a challenge?

    That was the one game where despite wanting to throw my controller many, many times (Freakin Alma!!!) i was having fun the whole time. It was utterly awesome. I cannot wait for the sequel.
  12. Dec 5, 2004 #11
    Wow, the only game on this list that I've played is Doom 3. I really gotta get out (or stay in?) more.

    Same here, but I love all WWII stuff. Can't wait for the new Medal of Honor to hit PS2.

    I really enjoyed the last James Bond game, All or Nothing at All. Looking forward to Golden Eye this week.

    I bought the Ace Combat 5 package deal (combat jet), which for $129 comes with a very hefty control stick and throttle/rudder control (USB too!). Very realistic.

    This is ridiciolus how can someone choose Doom 3 over halo 2..... that's just sad
  15. Dec 5, 2004 #14
    Not at all. Doom3 is a great game with magnificent graphics by far better than any ps2 game. Halo 2 will be better when it gets out for PC but will I doubtit will be as good as doom, atleast on the graphics side

    Just like most games

    You're talking about the multiplayer element. I was referring to the solo single
    player mission. It's highly annoying to find that when you switch to your main weapon it automatically drops your 2nd weapon in dual wield mode.

    I like the sword. I enjoyed using it especially when I play as elite. But that part of the game where you suddenly switch to becoming an Elite looks like it was ripped off from Metal Gear Solid 2. I don't have a problem with it but it's nothing original either.

    Graphics and gameplay wise. Doom 3 and Half-Life 2 are far superior to Halo 2 . When it comes to console games, Metal Gear's graphics, plotline and gameplay far surpass Halo 2.

    I agree Doom 3 is alright-- but not great they gave it 4/5 versus halo 2 5/5. Doom 3 is good game- just not as good as halo. It is unfair to compare graphics of computer vs xbox, and as far as campaign goes I am not sure because I got bored with doom 3 upon playing the first couple levels. I have beaten halo 2 twice already. As far as multiplayer goes... there is nothing even CLOSE to halo 2

    HALO 2 PWNS in Gameplay. However, I have to go with HL2 for graphics.
