I don't always vote in polls but when I do I make sure I spread them like a virus everywhere. Not that this means much for AC or the winners in particular, but sharing it here nonetheless. Don't kill me.

They have some tough choices and should wait until GTA 5 and Arkham origins comes out to do the final 4. I can't believe uncharted got beat out. I honestly couldn't choose between Mass Effect and Zelda. Those series both had great games. If GTA includes red dead and gta V, I would say that would be the winner, Elder Scrolls second, a tie between mass effect and zelda fro 3rd, and Assassins creed 4th. AC as a whole is def in my top 5 of favorite series ever, but it's had its quality flaws since brotherhood. I have a good feeling that will be redeemed with AC4

I have mixed feelings voting Assassin's Creed as the greatest series. It's my favorite, sure, but I feel the games are just inconsistent in quality and a bulk of the stories could be told in much less than five major games. Even if I were going for favorites, my favorite game of all time is RDR; however, I haven't played Revolver, so I can't say I love the series after playing only half of it. Zelda is up there with me, and actually is consistently well and spaced out between games, which becomes its downfall as some of its best games were in the 90s, though my favorite Zelda game (and second favorite game of all time) was Majora's Mask in 2000; but I still have problems counting the series as a whole as 2000-2010 only had about three major games. This is a toughie for sure.

On another note, I've only played Far Cry 3 and its definitely in my top 10, but again, haven't played any others. It's tough not being biased.

Its all about perspectives anyway. Its very difficult if not outright impossible to tell which game is objectively better than which. In the end comes down to preferences...unless we are talking technically in which case a good game is the one that runs flawlessly without any bugs and a bad one is the one which refuses to even launch.

Well I would like to know what they consider by "decade" and do they mean on past decade and period from 2001 to 2011 ?

Well I would rather say that AC is a best series of the current generation , but If we mean on last decade then I would rather say Metal Gear Solid since the 1st AC game from 2007 was very repetative , AC2 was a master-piece and one of the best games ever while Brotherhood and Revelations were just a giant DLC's and had not been a real full sequels
, so in last decade practically we got only one AC game which is a truly master-piece while Kojima had published a MGS2 : Sons of Liberty (2001), MGS3 : Snake Eater, MGS4 : Guns of the Patriots plus 2 also great games for PSP Portable Ops and Peace Walker....really each sequel is one master piece for itself.

But definitely MGS is my favorite series besides AC, also Mass Effect is about very close.

So I would say :


Assassin's Creed - best franchise of the current generation

Metal Gear Solid - best franchise of last decade

Ok guys I admit it. I haven't played any Mass Effect. I based all my opinion on Mass Effect purely by reading the plot on wikipedia, the reception and many walkthroughs on youtube. But seriously is it THAT emotional? That it makes people cry? As for Metal Gear Solid (I don't wanna offend anyone nor start fanboy wars). Can the games be really called masterpieces? (Let's not include Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 as they were out of this decade however you wanna look at it - the decade I mean/2000-10 or 2003 2013). I mean for me, the graphics were always something that bothered me. Also I never got used to the control scheme properly and I still have trouble with it. Plots were not at all enthralling in the same way AC's were. Gameplay was good, but it always was a bit weird. Stealth I mean. It wasn't stealth like Splinter Cell or Hitman or whatever. (By the way, if anyone thinks I'm saying boolsheet please don't attack me! just point it out). I (as opposed to the majority of MGS's fanbase) really like the direction V will take - more mainstream and appealing. Now if you compare gameplay of V and 3 and 4, it just resembles the previous games but the stealth is not at all the same experience. (Probably)

I was actually thinking of buying the trilogy pack these days as the next one (can't call it 4) will be on Frostbite 3 which for me makes it a 99% instabuy. But then I checked out the gameplay on youtube and it seemed to me as a very generic third person shooter.

Yeah well RDR still makes me marvel at the mornings in Nuevo Paraiso and it still has my attention and imagination captured. I play it and I LOVE the gameplay and feeling. If anyone has it do this, go somewhere under Rathskeller Fork and around Gaptooth Ridge and get off your horse and just walk. Not run. Walk. I did it a couple of times and it. was. epic. Night or day. EPIC!

Mass Effect isn't really my type of game, but I still think it's a strong contender for game series of the decade, simply because the amount of effort put into writing for all the different characters and scenarios is mind-blowing. Your relationship with your crew, allies, enemies, romances and even the lives and deaths of your friends are almost entirely dependent on your choices. The same game can be an entirely different experience for two different players from beginning to end. The third game kind of dropped the ball at the end, but otherwise the complex writing alone deserves recognition IMO.

DavidPage
09-07-2013, 04:50 PM
But how is it that thirds in everything (movie franchises, game franchises) are initially extra hyped and then they turn out disappointing?

So it will probably be AC vs TES which I think AC will win although it will be a close call. And the other one will be Mass Effect vs GTA which we know the winner regardless of the fans' allegiance (wtf) and then the final I've been telling you about: ASSASSIN'S CREED VS GRAND THEFT AUTO! A pointless one that is.

The only thing that I can't get over is the fact that Zelda beat RDR... HOW??? WHY??? At least the wound is a bit remedied when I see that Call of Duty got beaten by Max Payne and that Battlefield got dropped one round after CoD. (I really don't like the devs of CoD, they think too much of themselves but they are only a bunch of tech geeks bragging about dogs we can't even see when we're controlling - long story short, they suck ****).

AC isn't the best franchise of all time, not by a long shot. The best in this list would be GTA -- it even invented the genre AC is based on.
Fallout is better than AC, purely for 1 2 and NV. 3 doesn't resemble the series in the slightest bit.

Because Zelda is great, besides the Red Dead series so far as only given us a average TPS and the masterpiece that is RDR, there have been many more Zeldas in the past 10 years.

I actually don't think anyone thinks of AC as better franchise than GTA... But Fallout 1 and 2 came out before 2000 and can't be really considered the same thing as 3 and NV (maybe thematically but in any other way no) so 3 and NV aren't really better than the whole AC franchise (main series, spin offs, other media).

I suggest you play the older GTAs, not IV. All the others have an amazing charm with it's humorous characters, satirical world, incredible soundtrack, incredible maps, detail, story, dialogue, so forth. IV took this all out in an attempt to make it more like the classic crime film.
V can possibly be the best game ever, seriously. They haven't even revealed 5% of the game and everything about it is amazing. Go watch the gameplay trailer for it on youtube.

Hey man, I didn't say I don't like Zelda! To tell you the truth I haven't even played it! But seriously, I haven't heard or read too much about Zelda in years! And I read extensively! The only one I read about recently is Wind Waker because of comparisons with Black Flag when Ash gets asked... And yes maybe you like it and there are many fans and maybe it actually IS popular in recent years, but it certainly isn't GOTD... Against AC, GTA, hell even Mass Effect (which I said earlier that I haven't played) it's not.

I haven't played other Rockstar games, although I want to play LA Noire and RDR.

But GTA looks extremely over-rated to me and I've seen tons of complaints for both LA Noire and RDR.

Well that's why you think what you think. GTA IV isn't nearly as good of a GTA experience if you haven't played the previous ones! You have to have experienced previous GTA's to get the real feel of it. Because alone GTA IV is just a modern Mafia-like game...

port it to PC

or imma go watch the movie version of RDR and TLoU on youtube and you get no moneyz

The movie version won't do it justice at all. You go buy a PS3 with RDR and TLoU and you'll be in heaven.

Good thinking. But seriously, do it. Don't consider it. Do it. In a year or two would be great! As for the older GTAs, buy the trilogy pack online (III, Vice City, San Andreas) and there you go! It's just 20 bucks....

That's what I meant. PS3 is sharp in the sense that you can see every pixel in HD. 360 is a bit bland with colors but way clearer. Kinda like a painting.

Well I'm saying that based on many gameplay videos on youtube. I haven't played the 360 version. It just seemed to me that way. The only thing that I'm sure of is that the pixels are not visible on 360. At least not that much.

There it is.
GTA IV was the worst in the series.
You need to play the other GTAs to really understand what it's about. LA Noire wasn't by rockstar (just published) and RDR was by rockstar san diego, not north (developer of GTA). It's not a game where you kill people for ****s and giggles -- each one has an extremely good story.

No it doesn't -- you need to stop judging games without having played them. RDR has one of the best stories ever seen in a game. People to this day even debate who the true villain of the game is.
Rockstar gets lots of flak from people who've only played GTA IV and base their opinion of every game by that company just from that game. Rockstar north themselves were even embarrased with IV.

Actually John stopped that for years, hence why he had a farm. Its those governement people that made him do it again and they had great leverage over him (avoiding spoilers).

No, most of the characters are morally grey. I like to argue the only good people in the game are John and his wife (Jack later becomes corrupt) and the only villain is Nate Johns. The government is the one that forces John to go back into killing people, and instead of refusing to do it he knows he has no choice other than to do it otherwise his family will be taken away. So he decides to just get it done as quick as possible and without associating himself with too many people.
