Esturkdq4's Tournament #7:Best Game Ever

Recommended Posts

The Weapon Tournament will be done on Wednesday Night, so I thought to get a jump start on #7. Pretty simple, I need 16 People to Nominate 8 Games Each. By the end of the Weapon Tournament, if the nominations aren't filled, people who have already nominated can Nominate 8 More, and those who haven't nominated can nominate 16.

 

This shouldn't be a hard thing to ask, so I would like Box Arts to be Posted Along with Each Game Nomination. Makes it easier so I don't have to do it when the Tournament Starts. For games that don't have a Box Art Pic, I'll get them myself. You can nominate any game, but don't nominate remakes, just the original.

 

Any other Questions, just ask.

Ooh! First! Only question is whether remakes are considered a unique game from the original. Also, should they be judged by the era they were released, or overall? Anyhow...

No, Remakes are not considered a unique game, as I said in the 1st post, if Remakes were Nominated, I'd just count it as the original. How they are judged is to be determined by all of us, the voters. So, that question is really one for everyone, we'll just have to wait and see. Also, most of your box-arts aren't showing up. I'd go somewhere else to find them.

Hm. Strange, they show up for me. Which ones aren't working?

 

edit: I changed them anyway; let me know if they're still wonky

1. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Vice-city-cover.jpg

 

Great Story. Action/Strategy game with an RPG level of story. San Andreas improved on it and GTA III started it, but this one got it nearly perfect.

 

2. Ultima VII Complete

The_Complete_Ultima_VII_box.jpg

 

I have yet to see an RPG equal this one, 15 years later.

 

3. Arcanum

Arcanum_cover_copy.jpg

 

Another great one here. This one comes close to U7.

 

4. NCAA Football 04

NCAA_Football_2004_Coverart.jpg

 

My favorite sports series. The best of the PS2 versions.

 

5. NHL Hockey

NHL_Hockey_Coverart.png

 

How I killed the winters during my high school years.

 

6. Wing Commander III

Wc3boxart.jpg

 

Today it is common to see the story and missions format in action games. The Wing Commander series did it first. WC3 was the best of a great series. Yes, that's Luke Skywalker 15 years after Star Wars.

 

7. Gabriel Knight, Sins of the Fathers

Sinsfathers.jpg

 

Back in the early 90's, Sierra and Origin (Ultima/Wing Commander) were kings of PC gaming, and it was because of quality. Of all the top Sierra adventure games from that period, Leisure Suit Larry, Police Quest, Kings Quest, Laura Bow, Space Quest, this series was the best of them all. Gabriel Knight is probably the best video/computer game human hero character created.

 

8. Super Castlevania IV

Super_Castlevania_IV_USA.jpg

 

Best side scrolling action game I've ever played. Includes the Mario, Sonic, Contra, and Mega Man games I've played. That's not because the others are bad. This one is just that good.

Sorry about that! I had to get these in before someone else (like yourself) did. I liked Contra 3 as well. But I have too many memories of the classic Contra to leave it out.
