You left out CoD, SC, Metroid... Tons of others... This was a better idea with the open ended question of the other thread.. :D

I voted Final Fantasy, but I think it gets a little hurt because everyone is different, if you had never played a particular FF you wouldn't know those characters like you would link.

FF7 is still the best game ever made though. :)

There's only been two Halo games and both were last gen. The other games listed in the poll span multiple generations of systems with most spanning over two decades of console gaming.

Halo is hardly a contender. :goof:

This poll to me is a joke... There is no way gta can compare to Zelda. I know some might not agree, but think about this. Zelda has been around for 20 years and has a stronger following then 99.9% of the other games out there. And no matter what you say, for me it has the two best games ever made in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. So in my mind its a joke that gta can be tied with The Legend of Zelda.

FF wins this one, with zelda coming VERY VERY VERY close. i just haven't liked any zelda game since ocarina (the best game ever).

Yes I played and beat both. I said the FF series was really good didn't I?

FF7 > FF6

Sephiroth > Kefka

Chrono Trigger is a good game but still isn't in the same league as either of those FFs. I'm cool on time travel.

I am sorry but killing Kefka was far more satisfying than killing Sephiroth. Sephiroth was far too cool and you could see his point of view. Kefka was just a weasly little jerk. Probably the best video game bad guy ever.

I guess i have to disagree. I find Chrono Trigger to be the best RPGs of all time. If you take out the revolutionary graphics (at the time) of FFVII, the story and the characters just don't hold a candle to Chrono Trigger. Even though I did almost shed a tear when Aeris died.

Damn you really got my balls in a vice here alot of those are good. But Where's the Resident Evil Series? and where's Metroid?

I'll vote for Zelda.

Eh I guess Chrono Trigger just didn't do it for me. I've argued too much about Sephiroth vs Kefka and in my experience neither of us is going to be able to change each other's minds. Kefka was insane. Sephiroth was brilliant(and insane).

I can understand. I just like my villains to be very unlikable. To do things that just piss you off to no end so you really want to kick their *** at the end. Like Rodriguez in Skies of Arcadia or even better yet Irenicus in Baldur's Gate II. Sephiroth was just too likeable. I liked him more than Cloud.

Funny, I agree that Sephiroth > Kefka... But I think FF6 > FF7. WAY stronger story IMO.

I will definately give you that. I was pretty upset about the final (scripted) battle where even if you sit there, you automatically win. A lot of people say that FF6 had a better story than FF7, I guess so. I think they were both great and they were both very different. I just remember being in more awe when I first played 7 than when I did 6. That may be what did it for me. BTW it don't get much cooler than Sephiroth and Vincent. Two of the best video game characters ever made IMO. That and Cloud was one of the most badass heros of all time clinches it for me.

Kefka was someone who always had power(all he had to do was play along until he got what he wanted), and was just an evil son of a *****. You watch Sephiroth go from just a badass human, to nearly a god.

Heh how pissed were you the first time you played 7 when Sephiroth kills Aeris? I used her in my party all the time and I was pretty screwed after I lost her.

Different strokes for different folks. :)

I have not heard 1 person say how cool halo was except for playing multiplayer!!! So that doesnt make for a good series only a good multiplayer!

I know it is probably borken out into its own category, but what about Madden? It has lasted for just about ever and spanned many generations of consoles. I think it has to have consideration. Also, I agree that Metroid should be given a shot, although, I would probably still vote for Zelda.

Metal Gear is the best series ever, let's just admit this as fact right now.

For me it's between Metal Gear (which is suprisingly getting no love) and Final Fantasy, which I voted for. The gameplay in Metal Gear is unlike anything I've ever experienced in a videogame, it's brilliant without having to rely on graphics or even lots of action. The storyline for MGS will mess with your head for sure, but I ended up voting for Final Fantasy because I've never been as heartbroken by any game as when Aries is killed in FF VII, any game that can make me feel so sad has to be something special.

This is my first time in the gaming forum by the way, good topic to start me off with.

zelda. no doubt. except for the mishaps on the cd-i (which went del. by nintendo,), the series has been outstanding.
