Best video game of 06......
« on: January 23, 2007, 10:03:22 PM »
Pretty simple for me "Gears of War"....it is such an awesome game......

Though I didn't get a chance to play the new Zelda yet so my opinion might change after I play it.

Zelda was good. Not the best game ever made like some fanboys claim, but it was a lot of fun. I have the Wii version. I have played GoW but not enough to make a good judgement on it.

I'd throw in a vote for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I love that game.

Hmmmm good point, that game is so awesome.

Elderscrolls is good but not as good as Morrowind....so on that account I can't give it the best game of the year...

I liked Morrowind, but I'm the opposite of you on that one - I enjoyed Oblivion more as it felt more alive (not just because of the pretty graphics), things like spells were easier to handle so I actually used them in that game, climbing up to the top of the guilds and controlling things there was cool, but to each his own. :)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.  It'll be the best game for every year until the third one comes out (the second was great, but not better).   :)

Oh...You mean seriously? Neverwinter Nights 2.

KOTOR is pretty awesome. I haven't played it in a year or so...need to pop that back in and give it a go.

I play too many games to pick just one, but here's five contenders:

Dead Rising - Flawed genius
Hitman: Blood Money - Perfection of a brilliant idea
Gears of War - Far richer than I expected
Twilight Princess - Riddled with issues that were solved in previous games, but the new tools are so clever it simply doesn't matter
Xenosaga Episode III - Finally the series got it all right

Okami's not out in Eurpoe yet so I've not played it, but that looks lovely. And by a similar token (i.e. we got it at the start of '06) I would've included Shadow of the Colossus, but i don't want to confuse things.

Don't get me wrong I like Oblivion, it just doesn't do anything genuinely new beyond its bizarre "Speechcraft" conversation mechanic, and the world is too much of a fantasy cliche for my liking.

The Guitar Hero games are neat for sure.

I actually like KotOR II better.  It's much deeper and more dramatic, kinda the 'Empire Strikes Back' parallel to the series.  My main problem is that it looks like there may never be a 'Return of the Jedi' to tie up all of KotOR II's loose ends.

I read in PC gamer that they've just started work on it.  So who knows?

It'll get made. Bioware isn't directly involved anymore (And hasn't been since part 1) but they let Lucasarts keep their RPG engine, which is what made the KOTOR games so awesome. Lucasarts would have to be completely out of their minds not to make another one after the success of the first two. :^)

If you liked KoTOR, then you might like Neverwinter Nights 2, as it's basically the same game with all the Star Wars trappings removed and Dungeons and Dragons ones inserted.   ;D

Final Fantasy XII barely edges out Dead Rising for my vote.
