/v/ makes a chart: Recommending western games the Nips should play PART DEUX Anonymous 04/28/2022 (Thu) 18:29:58 Id: 8d68d1 No. 589177
Calling all anons! Let's make a chart together of your good western games the japanese audience should play! >why? There's an increasing effort to get the Japanese to play Western developed games. And, rather than let companies decide which games should introduce those players to media, we can develop a chart consisting of the "better" games that the West has released over the past 20-30 years, with five of the "best" or "most recommended" titles released every year. >ok I'm in, what are the rules? - The first version of release counts as the game's original release year, unless you're referring to a specific version of the game. - It is a good idea to prioritize games which either already have a Japanese translation or received a Japanese fan translation. - Each year must have 5 games total. - For variety's sake, try to keep it to one title per platform every year. - Only add games that you have personally played to this list. - The years will span from 1992-2021 Discuss with other anons what games you think should/should not be contenders as the games of the year! Archive of previous thread: https://archive.ph/qqE8d Note that the text list in the OP is from this post: >>582660 Any changes made since have not been applied, so be sure to post the updated list if you have it. Currently, we're going through the contenders for the year 2002. Here are the popular choices: >Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem >Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets >Metroid Prime >Sly Cooper & The Theivius Raccoonus And, the list of games to consider for the final spot: <Battlefield 1942 <BloodRayne <Grand Theft Auto Vice City <LEGO Island Xtreme Stunts <MechAssault <Pac-Man World 2 <Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 <Star Wars Jedi Knight 2 Jedi Outcast <Tetris Worlds (GC/Xbox) <The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind <Timesplitters 2
My choices are: >Age of Mythology >Eternal Darkness >Vice City >Metroid Prime >Morrowind
Here is the current txt file of the winners of the previous years from 1992-2001 Description of the 2002 games can be viewed here >>588882 Reposting a note on the Sly Cooper games >the first two games have a Japanese release complete with a Japanese dub & subtitles. For some reason the third game originally never got a Japanese release, but they would eventually get to play it in the Sly Cooper Collection.
one game i would recommend for 1996 is Heroes of Might and Magic 2 just an extremely fun game
Impressive how a thread like this can keep going considering how rare non GG threads can go on line this. Not counting the cyclical threads.
I want to recommend Morrowind, but I have no idea how good the fan translation of that game is. I don't know if it's even possible to translate some of Kirkbride's DMT-induced ramblings without losing a lot of its nuance.

>>589226 There is a faint possibility that some nuance may be lost when bringing a western game to the Japanese audience, but it has not stopped some nips from playing the games anyway. Of course, they have fan translations patched in since Morrowind never saw a Japanese release. The Japanese also never got a PC release of Oblivion, just the console ones. Much like Morrowind, there are fan translations of it out in the open.
>>589249 >The Japanese also never got a PC release of Oblivion, just the console ones. Playing an Elder Scrolls game without mods is the definition of self-harming behavior.
>>589189 The board was interested in giving opinions I guess
>>589357 Not only that, weve had to negotiate in a civil manner what to pick or not, and make arguments over what should be in that place, that generates organic discussion.

>>589371 Anon, read the OP and the current vote.
>>589371 >you just went full n'wah yeah you did
>>589177 <Battlefield 1942 dead multiplayer games should not be considered. Also >lego games >nerf arena blast Was there ANY quality control or are you just putting down the first thing anons blurt out? Stick party babyz on there, they will love it. Promise :)

>Battlefield 1942 Even with the cool mods, it's not worth playing it nowadays. The game isn't interesting enough without the multiplayer. >Ion Fury The best boomer shooter with a classic style. Can't go wrong with it. >Need for Speed Carbon While 'Most Wanted' is certainly the best game in the series, Carbon takes things in an interested direction and is literally set in Japan, taking a lot from the street racing scene there. >GTA Vice City While I like the game, I find the controls to be unbearable on PC. I would put an observation to play the console version.
>>589226 >>589249 The most complete Morrowind JP patch was hosted on geocities before that got taken down, you can still find it through the wayback machine: https:// web.archive.org/web/20190330182018/http:// www.geocities.jp/meisaku_asobu/KanjiMorrowind.html Maybe the infographic could include links to translation patches where applicable?
>>589570 That would actually be really helpfull, give japs tools and resources since i bet it would be hard for them to find that info.
>>589570 Does it work with OpenMW?
>>589555 The list for recommendations is going year by year and is currently on the year 2002.
>>589678 OpenMW should have the character support the Japanese patch needs, but I'm not sure. Maybe someone should try installing it to see what happens?
>>589177 Nips don't browse this board and stick to their ricefield forums, what's the point of this thread? Especially to make a second one of it? It's all the same shit anyway, the exact same games that anons recommend to each other all day every day. Nips aren't gonna be blown away by, or are totally ignorant of, games like Morrowind, Deus Ex, Need for Speed, Doom, Half Life(lmao), and all the Japanese games you retards are recommending to JAPANESE anons. Just make another recommended game general and post all the usual copypasta in there
>>589555 >Carbon >In japan Someone has clearly not played the game.
>>590501 The point is to create a new recomendation that can be used. Someone clearly is a newfag
So, here is the game's decided for 2002: >Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem >Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets >Metroid Prime >Sly Cooper & The Theivius Raccoonus >The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind With the honorable mentions: <Battlefield 1942 <BloodRayne <Grand Theft Auto Vice City <LEGO Island Xtreme Stunts <MechAssault <Pac-Man World 2 <Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 <Star Wars Jedi Knight 2 Jedi Outcast <Tetris Worlds (GC/Xbox) <Timesplitters 2 Does that look right to everyone else, and ready to move onto 2003?
>>591480 Looks OK to me, though I never played Sly Racoon or Harry Potter so I don't have an opinion on those. If we are moving on to 2003 I'd suggest: >KOTOR >Prince of Persia: Sands of Time >Beyond Good & Evil >Splinter Cell >Max Payne 2
>>591480 For fuck's sake, Metroid Prime is a JAPANESE GAME! Why did you not remove Japanese games from the list! The point of this chart is being forgotten more and more every day.
>>591518 This anon is correct, how that fell thru I have no idea. I don't know what game was the sixth followup, but I suggest it to be replaced with vice city, I think it's the most important game from the list for that year
Oh yeah, as for the games for 2003 >>591495 >>591480 >Prince of Persia: Sands of Time >Splinter Cell >Call of Duty >KOTOR >Max Payne 2
>>591518 >Metroid Prime is a JAPANESE GAME! https://www.mobygames.com/game/metroid-prime <Developed by Retro Studios Inc. https://www.mobygames.com/company/retro-studios-inc <Retro Studios was founded in 1998 by Jeff Spangenberg https://infogalactic.com/info/Retro_Studios <Founded: Austin, Texas, United States (October 1998)
>>591528 Metroid is a japanese franchise, it might as well be classified as japanese for the purposes of this list. That would be like suggesting a mario game to them, even tho technically that one specific game was made by a western studio, the whole point is to show eastern gamers what western games they might not have heard of are worth playing

>>591530 >the whole point is to show eastern gamers what western games they might not have heard of are worth playing NO, the purpose of the list is to show to Japanese players the games that the West is proud of creating. With the original inspiration of it being a result of how there's an increasing drive by Western companies to tell the Nips what Western games they "should" be playing, and this list looking to thwort that by informing them of the games the West is actually proud of rather than just whatever helps the pocketbooks of companies who just want to endlessly release the same shit to a different market. It's NOT suppose to be some contrarian list of "games you might not know exist".
>>591539 I think games that nips might be familiar with should be in it's own category, "honorable mentions" of sorts, but if anons don't have a problem with it, neither do I. Let's see if we even get 5 games that "the west is proud of" starting from mid 2010s per year
>>591540 >Let's see if we even get 5 games that "the west is proud of" starting from mid 2010s per year We already did that! We're going year by year, and we're currently on 2003. We'll be getting to the 2010's later.

Another 2003 games I forgot to list: >Impossible Creatures An RTS where you frankenstein together different animals to create specific units
>Max Payne 2 >Rayman 3 >Splinter Cell >SW:KOTOR >The Simpsons Hit & Run My picks. Postal 2 would be better suited as an honorable mention than being picked.

>>589177 Probably too late to add this in but if earlier years are still up for debate please consider this at least. Year for this would be in 1998. This game forced the player to take time to plan out different approaches and entry styles. Very little room for error is allowed and enemy spawns are randomized. Not to mention that the plot is played out very well, having a genocidal hippie trying to poison 99% of the global population with airborne Ebola Chan. There is an issue however, this game is a bitch and a million to get working since it was released for Win98; some people got it running with Win7 but Win10 is apparently a no-go.
>>592412 Which game would be the best for japs to recommend? I figure, like with most normalfags, they only know the franchise name from fucking siege, which is depressing, but did the later games refine on the formula? I know starting with Lockdown and especially with Vegas the series started to become casualized
>>592426 Unfortunately I would just go with the first one since plot wise its not just generic ex-soviet selling plutonium, etc. But as far as better game play the later ones were better, such as Raven Shield and Rogue Spear. But any later games than that I wouldn't recommend since past that time frame is when games started their descent.
Here are the top pics for 2003: >Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne >Prince of Persia: Sands of Time >Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Now, there are still two spots open, and it's boiled down to the following titles: -Beyond Good & Evil -Call of Duty -Postal 2 -Rayman 3 And, the remainder will be listed as honorable mentions: <Jak II <SSX 3 <The Simpsons: Hit & Run <Tron 2.0 <XIII
>>592437 Call of Duty definitely deserves a mention, even if you hate it's guts for what it did to gaming later down the line. I actually preferred Rayman 2 to 3, but I guess I will choose it here Beyond Good And Evil never really stuck it with me, I dunno why. Strange little game, Postal 2 is a fun sandbox, but not something I would put in a top 5 anything list
>>592412 >Probably too late to add this in but if earlier years are still up for debate please consider this at least. We can go over that later once the list is compiled and if anyone wants to challenge what will be listed. >There is an issue however, this game is a bitch and a million to get working since it was released for Win98; some people got it running with Win7 but Win10 is apparently a no-go. There was also the Dreamcast version that has the Eagle Watch missions included on the disc. >>592441 So, put CoD and Rayman 3 in the "top five"?
>>592443 yes, count those 2 in for me, for the tiebreakers
>>592437 I like Postal 2 but I would consider it more an honorable mention.
>>592437 >Rayman and COD over SSX 3 and Jak II I knew this place had shit taste but god fucking damn.
>>592515 I get the COD, but what's the problem with Rayman 3?
Here's the final pics for 2003: >Call of Duty >Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne >Prince of Persia: Sands of Time >Rayman 3 >Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic With the honorable mentions of: <Beyond Good & Evil <Jak II <Postal 2 <SSX 3 <The Simpsons: Hit & Run <Tron 2.0 <XIII Does that look acceptable to everyone? >>592515 SSX I've heard about but had zero interest in. However, with Jak II, I remember everyone issue with that game is that it was such a large departure from J&D, by replacing the open-world platforming for a GTA styled game, on top of upping the edge out of nowhere.
>>592681 >>592681 Thinking about it now I would change my vote from Rayman to SSX 3. It's pretty much the peak of the franchise and, save for 2005's On Tour which was not bad of a game, later games would not be as good. Rayman on the other hand might have been eventually poisoned with the rabbids in a few years, but he at least got some good new games around the start of the 10s.
>>592681 >I get the COD, but what's the problem with Rayman 3? Nothing's particularly wrong with it, it's just really forgettable. Rayman has never been anything particularly special and his platformers are mid at best. >>592681 >However, with Jak II, I remember everyone issue with that game is that it was such a large departure from J&D, by replacing the open-world platforming for a GTA styled game, on top of upping the edge out of nowhere. This was a good thing. The first J&D game came within inches of being a Mario 64 collectathon. Went from that to having a proper identity. And it didn't even play that different from the first J&D. Yes there was a hub world where you could swipe vehicles, but the actual missions themselves were heavy on the platforming focus. Many critics considered it one of the best games of that year and I still have very fond memories of it. I personally liked the move away from being an SM64 knockoff.
>>592910 It wasn't an SM64 knockoff, it was Crash Bandicoot with connected levels.
So the list is back to the following: >Call of Duty >Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne >Prince of Persia: Sands of Time >Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic With the fifth entry chosen from one of the following: <Beyond Good & Evil <Postal 2 <Rayman 3 <SSX3
>>593172 I stand by SSX3 being more deserving of a spot since it was the peak of the franchise. On Tour is good, but it belongs in 2005's honorable mentions.
>>593180 I agree. Besides, SSX isn't even on the list from previous years and it deserves some attention. I really think Japanese gamers would love it. SSX is genuinely one of the most fun sports games we American pigs have ever made
>>593172 Bearing mind we're picking games for a nip audience, I would suggest BG&E but I know I'm in the minority there. SSX seems to have a lot of love so maybe throw them a bone and let's move on to 2004.
As for 2004 I nominate the following: >Half Life 2 >Burnout 3 Takedown >Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay >Far Cry >Sid Meier's Pirates

>>589177 Count a vote for Eternal Darkness from me >>591531 Actually rather than the original Asterix XXL, I would really like it if you guys added Asterix XXL2 - Mission: Las Vegum. That game is such a fucking gem, it's essentially a beat em up with game references in it, except it's all done with the same kind of humor that you would find in an original Goscinny/Uderzo publication of Asterix. Case in point: look at these fucking pictures, half the fun is spotting hidden and not so hidden references Apparently it's even got a remaster but I have no idea if it's any good
>>593223 lmao, devs must have had fun making this game
>>593225 Heh, I feel the same way My only problem with the game is that it's very samey after the novelty of the game references wears off, also there's a Matrix reference that is completely out of place (and definitely just the devs trying to recycle assets), but otherwise it's really enjoyable picking apart the scenery. People usually point to Sexy Parodius, The Stanley Parable or The Simpsons' Game when they want to talk about games that parody other games but this one is my go-to. >>593202 All Next Level Games err games (the Mario Strikers and Strikers Charged bunch, Punch Out Wii and the newer Luigi's Mansions) are really fucking good, but should they go on the list? Technically they are Western developed games, but they're published by a Jap company.
>>593226 somewhere in the thread it was decided these games indeed make the list, but I think that's only because so many people wanted to include metroid prime
>>593226 if they were developed in the West for a (mostly) western audience they should count. Metroid Prime was specifically made to appeal to western tastes which is why Nintendo chose the people from Iguana who made Turok to make it.
>>593187 >>593228 >Bearing mind we're picking games for a nip audience See: >>591539
So, this wil be the list for 2003: >Call of Duty >Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne >Prince of Persia: Sands of Time >SSX3 >Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic With the honorable mentions of: <Beyond Good & Evil <Jak II <Postal 2 <Rayman 3 <The Simpsons: Hit & Run <Tron 2.0 <XIII Onto to 2004: 2004 2004 >Burnout 3: Takedown An arcade racer that's focused upon players wiping out opponents for boost >FlatOut A destruction derby game notable for car drivers flying through the windshield >Grand Theft Auto San Andreas A sandbox TPS >Halo 2 A sci-fi FPS across vast alien landscapes >Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban An open-world dungeon crawler >Rome: Total War A historically authentic RTS within a turn-based system >Second Sight A stealth-based TPS dealing with psychic powers >Spider-Man 2 A sandbox game that has the player feel like Spider-Man >Star Wars: Battlefront A FPS/TPS battlefield simulator based within the Star Wars universe >The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth >The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie A collectathong 3D platformer >The Suffering A horror-based FPS/TPS in a prison where you actions in the game have consequences >Unreal Tournament 2004 A multiplayer only FPS with vehicles >Van Helsing A character action games focusing on the usage of guns while following the film's plot >Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War An RTS focused upon the usage of squad units
Some last minute additions people added to the contenders: >>Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay A stealth FPS staring Vin Diesel >Far Cry An open-world FPS based on a beautiful island >Half Life 2 The anticipated sequel to 1998's Half-Life that continues the story but doesn't finish it. >Need For Speed Underground 2 The sequel to the previous NFS Undeground title that brought the series into an open-world environment. >Painkiller An FPS where you kill demons with big guns. >Sid Meier's Pirates A remake of the 1987 strategy game that put Sid Meier on the map
>>593289 Vouching for Total War Rome, nips don't know what they're missing out on Also add: The Sims 2, Crash Twinsanity (need to include the fact it's unfinished and has an active modding community), Metroid Prime 2 and Manhunt. Also >Dragon Quest VIII and Feel the Magic: XY/XX were released in 2004 What a legendary year for gaming
>Halo 2 >Second Sight >Star Wars: Battlefront >The Suffering >Van Helsing These five get my vote.
>>593289 >burnout 3 >dawn of war >san andreas >rome:total war >half-life 2 Im saving my battlefront vote for battlefront 2 and my need for speed vote for most wanted.
>>593289 2004, what a great year for games! Here are my picks >Burnout 3 >Rome: Total War >San Andreas >Sid Meier's Pirates >UT 2K4 (Peak of the franchise, the later games would be awful to recommend)
>>589177 Way to make the rules. >- The first version of release counts as the base number of the release year, unless you're referring to a specific number that is not in the Mandelbrot set, but is a version of the game. >- It is a good idea to prioritize numbers outside the set, which either are a prime, or are just too Japanese to ignore. >- Each number must have 5 other numbers with it. So about 6 in total. I think. >- For fuck's sake, try to keep Markov chains under control, they are abused enough in analyticvidhya already. don't google it >- Only add numbers that you have personally made up to this list. >- The set will span from (911ê * CY+xx) to 1005 SolidDB failure. My human suffering number is: 731 And my top games for 2006 are: Hitman Bloodmoney (probably the most western game I know, seriously) Flat Out 2 Dark Messiah of Might & Magic WH40k Dark Crusade Psychonauts (great game, but fuck Mister Shitface, and his creepy cumsock with eyes) Easy year 2006. What a great year for gaming. We got Okami and Midna from Asia that year. Left out F.E.A.R. and elder scrolls for a reason. I think I got the year wrong, sorry.
Here are the current contenders for 2004. However, we have one game too many for the purposes of the list, one of these will have to be reduced to honorable mentions: >Burnout 3 Takedown >Half Life 2 >Halo 2 >Grand Theft Auto San Andreas >Rome: Total War >Sid Meier's Pirates And, the following are out current honorable mentions: <Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay <Crash Twinsanity <Far Cry <Manhunt <Metroid Prime 2 <Need For Speed Underground 2 <Painkiller <Second Sight <Star Wars: Battlefront <The Sims 2 <The Suffering >Unreal Tournament 2004 >Van Helsing >Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War
hope you'll not gonna just paste a bunch of cover art for each year and call it a day, atleast write a single line about the games
>>594185 Oh boy this is a toughie. Though I didn't vote for it, Half-Life 2 is okay to play. While It still holds up tech-wise, I prefer the original Half-Life & I can't really put my finger on why I'm not too crazy on its sequels. If no other option comes, I'll rescind my vote on Sid Meier's Pirates. It'll still be recommended anyway
>>594185 If I had to choose one of these games to be cut, I guess it would have to be burnout. To each their own, as far as favorites go, but I have just never seen anyone talk about the game other than the people who really liked it, where as the others heavily influenced their genres and gaming as a whole. Same goes for Sid Meier's Pirates!, to be honest, except I remember it being a bit more popular when it came out. Not an easy choice for sure, maybe a burnout game down the line can be included, so Pirates can stay, no way an average jap is gonna ever hear of it again otherwise where as if you like any burnout game, you are likely to look up what other sequels have been made and try to play them
>>594256 >>594250 I dont see whats so great about pirates.
>>594256 Fair point on the Burnout games, I liked 3 the best in the series but there's also Revenge & Paradise I predict Paradise is going to be a winner for 2008 when we get there, while I see Revenge as an honorable mention for 2005.
>>594258 This page talks about Sid Meier's Pirates being a treasure to recommend if it helps digdeeper.neocities.org/ghost/sidmeierspirates.html
>>594258 It's a great game, you should definitely play it Like >>594259 said, Burnout had other great games, but as far as I know, Pirates never had a sequel, so I would keep it for 2004 as it is the more unique of the two
>>594258 Then play it and see.
So, this will be the final list for 2004: >Half Life 2 >Halo 2 >Grand Theft Auto San Andreas >Rome: Total War >Sid Meier's Pirates With the honorable mentions of: <Burnout 3 Takedown <Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay <Crash Twinsanity <Far Cry <Manhunt <Metroid Prime 2 <Need For Speed Underground 2 <Painkiller <Second Sight <Star Wars: Battlefront <The Sims 2 <The Suffering <Unreal Tournament 2004 <Van Helsing <Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Does that look right everyone for now? >>594197 That sounds like a smart idea, give a general outline of the five best each year of what they are. Though, may not list that for the honorable mentions. >>594259 If it means anything, the original Burnout is currently listed as the best of 2001. However, once we finish going through all the remaining years and have a final list, then we can decide if any of the contenders for "Best of" for each year should be changed. Also, I get the feeling that the honorable mentions should severally be reduced, but we can talk about that later. >>594261 >Pirates never had a sequel, so I would keep it for 2004 as it is the more unique of the two It was also ported to most console available at the time, so it can be argued that there was some popularity behind it (Though I haven't played it myself).

>>594279 Servers are shitting themselves and ate my pictures, here are my titles: >SWAT 4 >Battlefield 2 >FEAR and Worms 4 + Obscure, not sure why they went thru fine
2005 >Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 A puzzle platformer based off the French comic >Batman Begins A stealth-based beat 'em up that's follows the plot of the film >Burnout Revenge An arcade racer that's focused upon players wiping out opponents for boost >F.E.A.R.

>Batman Begins >F.E.A.R. >Need for Speed: Most Wanted >The Matrix: Path of Neo >Tom Clancy Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory These are my picks.
>>594293 I choose >Battlefield 2 >F.E.A.R >Need for Speed: Most Wanted >Serious Sam 2 >SWAT 4 Saving Civ IV for V since it's the better game with it's only gripe being not having the main songs as good as Baba Yetu. Could be good enough to be honorably mentioned. It's a tradgey though that TimeSplitters Future Perfect is the last game in the series & has since then been in limbo for a long time. Can't really say if it's good enough to be honorably mentioned like Timesplitters 2.
>>594293 >F.E.A.R. >NFS: most wanted >Timesplitters >ultimate spider-man >mario strikers
>>594315 >>SWAT 4 Saving Civ IV for V since it's the better game with it's only gripe being not having the main songs as good as Baba Yetu. Civ V is inferior for everything except PvP since you can actually finish a V game in 1-2 settings. Either way it's irrelevant since the franchise peaked with Alpha Centauri.
>>594328 >>594315 Also Serious Sam 2 is a poor game for anything but 2-3 player coop where it's surprisingly great.
>>594329 How come you say 2-3 player coop as opposed to the usual 8+ player coop the games have usually been known for having?
>>594330 Serious Sam 2 was not designed for 8+ player coop. The first two games were. SS2 vanilla won't even spawn enough vehicles for 8 players unless you install that recent unexpected fanpatch.
>>594340 >>594330 Forgot to say: it helps to understand SS2 was designed with cross-platform in mind and arguably some of it functions as a direct gaylo parody.
>>594341 >>594340 Okay, makes sense. I'd swap my vote for Sam 2 to Civ IV even if the franchise peaked back in 1999 with Alpha Centauri.
So far, the common contenders for 2005 are: >Battlefield 2 >F.E.A.R. >Need for Speed: Most Wanted >SWAT 4 Seems like F.E.A.R. is near universal in agreement, and we need one more game to fill the final slot: <Batman Begins <Obscure <Sid Meier's Civilization IV <Super Mario Strikers <The Matrix: Path of Neo <TimeSitters: Future Perfect <Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory <Worms 4 Mayhem
>>594395 chaos theory is arguably the best splinter cell game, and the swan song of tom clancy's series before the games *really* started to take a shit and getting casualized, so that's where my vote is going
>>594293 >Burnout Revenge Paradise a shit and Revenge is the last of the traditional Burnout games. I've been on an arcade racer binge lately and these games are at the peak of the genre.
>>594395 Psychonauts absolutely deserves the slot due to its unique 60s aesthetics. Also, I'd dump NFS and add God of War, as it is legit pretty good and represents the "gritty macho western taste" of that time well (even though it's kind of a Rygar ripoff).
>>594395 >tfw split between Chaos Theory & Psychonauts >dump NFS and add God of War Isn't its sequel better than the original? Burnout Revenge at least deserves an honorable mention as I also agree with >>594402 on it being the last traditional Burnout game before the formula changed. I know it's a horse that's beaten to death, but it's depressing to see many games peak at this year & had their swan songs
So, here's the list now: >Battlefield 2 >Burnout Revenge >F.E.A.R. >SWAT 4 >Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory And, the honorable mentions: <Batman Begins <God of War <Need for Speed: Most Wanted <Obscure <Psychonauts <Sid Meier's Civilization IV <Super Mario Strikers <The Matrix: Path of Neo <TimeSitters: Future Perfect <Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory <Worms 4 Mayhem Does seem acceptable for 2005?
>>594422 Seems fine. Even if GoW doesn't get in, I'm sure its sequels will win the later years. I liked Psychonauts when I last played it, but I don't think I could give up Burnout Revenge for it.
2006 >Bully A sandbox beat 'em up with mini-games >Call of Juarez An FPS based in the American Wild West >Dark Messiah of Might and Magic A first-person RPG that allows the layer to completely develop their character >F.E.A.R.: Extraction Point (Expansion Pack) A horror-based FPS in urban environments with top-notch AI and a story that follows the ending of the previous game >FlatOut 2 >McDonald's Video Game A restaurant management simulator >Medieval II: Total War A historically authentic RTS within a turn-based system >OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast An arcade racer focused in the player getting to the end before time runs out >Saints Row An sandbox beat 'em up where the player can build up their own crew >Slaves to Armok: God of Blood - Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress A city management simulator >The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion A fantasy sandbox RPG >Tomb Raider: Legend A TPS with platforming and puzzle elements
>>594435 >OutRun 2006 Does that count? It's made in England, but it's basically a souped up OutRun 2, which was made by a Japanese team.

Hmm...if I had to pick for 2006 >Bully >Hitman Blood Money >Prey >Medieval II: Total War >Tomb Raider Legend Has any anon played Gun? Is it worthy of being honorable mention? Garry's Mod came out in 06. I really want to recommend it, but it has changed so much since the last time I played it years ago, can the game be played offline?
>>594463 >Has any anon played Gun? Is it worthy of being honorable mention? I always wanted to know that. I think Call of Juarez completely overshadowed it
>>594463 I played Gun, it's obvious the developers had a greater vision for it judging by all the abandoned mechanics and stuff from interviews, but one that just couldn't be recognized given the limitations (It was a 360 launch title I want to say.) I definitely would say Gun is worth an honorable mention.
>>594435 >dark messiah >dorf fort >bully >prey >tomb raider
>F.E.A.R.: Extraction Point >Marvel: Ultimate Alliance >OutRun 2006: Coast to Coast >Prey >Tomb Raider: Legend These five are my judgement.
So far, the contenders for 2006 are: >Bully >Hitman: Blood Money >Marvel: Ultimate Alliance >Prey >Tomb Raider: Legend With the honorable mentions of: <Black <Dark Messiah of Might and Magic <F.E.A.R.: Extraction Point <Gun <Half-Life 2: Episode 1 <Medieval II: Total War <OutRun 2006: Coast to Coast <Slaves to Armok: God of Blood - Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress <Titan Quest <Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vega <TrackMania Nations Does that look agreeable to everyone else?
>>594485 Looks fine. It'll be crazy to see the games released in 2007 hit 15 years old
>>594485 Wait for some more votes.
>>594485 There's still this issue I've mentioned >>594454
>>594454 >Does that count? See: >>591528 And: >>591539 Long story short, as long as the game was developed in the West, even if the series is owned by the Japanese, it counts. And, you can follow this logic as being sound when the reverse results in Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Sly Cooper, God of War, Twisted Metal, Eternal Darkness, and Goldeneye 007 all being disqualified because they're "Japanese games" (As all the companies who own those series are Japanese at this present moment).
>>594506 Not quite the same. Prime is totally different from the previous Metroids, but OutRun 2006 is just a "deluxe" version of 2.

(317.45 KB 852x1200 8262-crysis-pc-capa-1.jpg)

My picks for 2007: Bioshock Crysis Portal Tomb Raider: Anniversary Honorable mentions: Colin McRae: Dirt Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Half-Life 2: Episode Two Stalker The Witcher >>594678 >The Orange Box I'm not sure a compilation fits the idea of this list.
>>594713 It's 3 games at once, a much better way than counting expansion packs separately. Plus, I think that all these games do belong on this list, and for a while, this was the only way to play portal(and it was the only way to play TF2 or HL EP1 and 2 on consoles), not to mention EP2, TF2 and Portal were initially only available from the orange box I would agree with you if this was just a collection of previously released titles, but for the longest time, Orange Box was essentially treated as a standalone videogame by every retailer and game reviewer, so it might as well be counted as one.
>>594715 No, if the idea is to introduce japs to western games they might not know, listing them individually is more informative. If you're buying them now, it's basically irrelevant, you might as well recommend the "Valve Complete Pack" instead.
(465.58 KB 800x600 nip chart WIP.png)

>>594708 Right now the brunt of the work is gathering all the titles chosen including the honorable mentions. Design wise is still being looked into. The five games will have their appropiate box art covers (with priority given to Japanese releases if they have any or whatever region is the most uncensored) with the kanjis for 'Developer' & 'Country of Origin' (or however else you wish to say what country the dev company is from). Devs will have their country flag displayed underneath their name. For aesthetic reasons, the dev names would benefit from having their names in the english alphabet than the kanas, even japanese wikipedia lists their names like that confusingly though, the publisher names can sometimes be in japanese writing. For example I looked up Call of Duty & while they had the dev names in english like Infinity Ward, the publishers on the other hand had them in Japanese. So it wasn't 'Activision', it was instead アクティビジョン and instead of microsoft, it was instead マイクロソフト Pic is currently what I have in mind, but it is subject to change.
>>594755 I noticed that Half Life didn't make it on the year it was released, instead we saw titles like "spyro the dragon" or "apocalipto", which I haven't even heard of, in their place. I get that all tastes in gaming are different, and that this board is a rather small focus group to be making such a huge list, but I think a little bit of quality control is in order. Half-Life is one of the most influential games of all time and dethroned Doom as the genre's king when it came out, to the point where Doom 3 tried aping it. Half Life definitely needs to be on that list, with one of the two titles I mentioned, or some other, being moved to honorable mentions instead. If we're going to ignore games that actually changed the industry like this, we might as well trick the japs into playing bubsy 3D or big rigs or other "meme games" as well, like cuckchanners. I strongly urge you to reconsider that year listing, I don't think I have a problem with the other spots thus far Other than that, I do like your mockup, do you plan on sharing it on japanese centric sites like 2/5chan when it is completed?
2007 >Crysis A sandbox FPS with the player having a high-tech suit >Dementium: The Ward A horror-based FPS where the player explores a hospital >Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga A puzzle platformer that satirizes the six Star Wars films >Mario Strikers Charged A party-based soccer game with power-ups >Overlord An ARPG with RTS elements >Spider-Man 3 A sandbox game that has the player feel like Spider-Man >S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl An objective-based open-world FPS with role-playing elements >Team Fortress 2 A multiplayer only team-based FPS >Teeworlds >World in Conflict An objective-based RTS with resource management

Yes, it's "influential", but that doesn't make it good. Hell, you mention Doom 3, and that's still a far better game than Half-Life ever will be. >Half Life definitely needs to be on that list It is listed as an honorable mention, and it's sequel is listed as the "Best of" for 2004. >If we're going to ignore games that actually changed the industry like this You DO realize that Gaben is one of the pretentious fags that were convinced about how "Vidya is art" and is on record bitching about players need a "reason" to be killing the bloodthirsty aliens that want to feast on your entrails, right? You know, the same idiots that gave us classics like Gone Homo and Sex Depression Quest. Instead of the people who actually pushed vidya improvement like John Carmack, David Braben and Jordan Mechner. Hell, even wannabe filmmakers like Yu Suzuki have still pushed vidya farther than anything Gaben did.
>>594829 your shit taste aside, like I said the game had a massive impact on the gaming world. not including it because you have a problem with the company is a cuckchan tier move. >never heard of "spyro the dragon" learn to read, I never heard apocalipto, and it doesn't deserve to take half life's spot. more people have forgotten about half life than people played that game in the first place, if it's that good, it definitely deserves a spot on the "honorable mentions" >spyro the dragon literally just playstation's bing bing wahoo. spyrofags are some of the worst, degenerate mouthbreathers on the internet >>594828 >>594827 >dementium: the ward I could have sworn that game was super mediocre and forgettable. The only thing it had going for it was that it was the only FPS game of value on the system, until COD ports and metroid prime hunters entered the ring >>594830 >half life is an absolutely mediocre game shit taste and shit opinion, especially if you think some mediocre ds game deserves a top 5 spot like this. You're also confirming that it's only not there because you don't like it. you're free to do what you want, of course, but if a game like half life is relegated to a pity spot while /literally who/ and baby's first platformer take it's place, just because you like them better, it doesn't make your list good, or give anyone a reason to take it seriously. Especially since Half Life 2 made it, and it is common consensus that HL1 is still a better game than HL2, not to mention more influential and impactful as a whole TL;DR you put up a child's crayon drawing over Mona Lisa because you have a seething hatred for Da Vinci, for some reason, and trying to cope with it. Not a good look, but there is nothing i can really do about that, don't expect people to take your list seriously with that attitude >the whole valve rant lmao, (You)
>>594833 >I never heard apocalipto It's a cinematic third-person shooter staring Bruce Willis that was years ahead of it's time, and established the technology used for later also acclaimed titles like the Tony Hawk and Spider-Man games. >and it doesn't deserve to take half life's spot It does if it's a better game than Half-Life, which seemed to be the case according to other Anons. I haven't played Apocalypse either, FYI. >more people have forgotten about half life than people played that game in the first place I can't see how when just about every "Great game ever made list" that journos shit out has it listed on there for no other reason than popularity and it's "influence" on gaming. >especially if you think some mediocre ds game deserves a top 5 spot like this For the year it was released, yes, I do. I consider Dementium to be a better game than Bioshock, COD4, and F.E.A.R.: Perseu Mandate (Other Anons disagree on this, in case you haven't noticed, so it likely won't go higher than an honorable mention). However, I cannot state if it's better than BlackSite: Area 51, Halo 3, nor The Darkness as I haven't played any of those (Nor has any other Anon, or they don't consider them to be one of the "better" Western games of 2007). >You're also confirming that it's only not there because you don't like it. It's on the damn list, just as an honorable mention. My dislike is Half-Life did have me withhold my vote for it, HOWEVER that didn't prevent other Anons from voicing their opinion on if it should be included or not. >but if a game like half life is relegated to a pity spot while /literally who/ and baby's first platformer take it's place What about Thief and Turok 2? >just because you like them better That tends to happen when a game is better designed than another game. If multiple people don't care for one 22 year old game in comparison to another 22 year old game, then it's probably an indicator that people don't care for the former 22 year old game in comparison to the latter. >Especially since Half Life 2 made it For 2004, which had a different catalog of games released and voiced about than 1998. >and it is common consensus that HL1 is still a better game than HL2 So? For 1998, in comparison to the other games that came out that year, Half-Life is only worth of an honorable mention according to the Anons posting in these threads; meanwhile, for 2004, Half-Life 2, is considered one of the best games that came out that year. >you put up a child's crayon drawing over Mona Lisa because you have a seething hatred for Da Vinci Funny you mention that. I recently met with someone who actually did go the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa, and the first two comments out of their mouth was "Boy, that picture is tiny", and "Wait, that's it?"
>>594827 I'd personally go with: >Crysis >Lego Star Wars >STALKER 1 >Dementium or Overlord <If there is going to be any more CoD games after this point, I'd either stick the original Modern Warfare (for it's campaign) in or World at War (for it's zombies mode, the pacific campaign would probably be a sore spot for most Jap players.) >>594844 Actually, you could even cull all sequel games from the list altogether and just recommend certain series in their stead, could solve a lot of arguments that way.
So, here are the current contenders for 2007: >Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare >Crysis >S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl With two slots open choosing from the following: -Dementium: The Ward -Half-Life 2: Episode Two -Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga -Portal -Team Fortress 2 And, the honorable mentions currently consisting of: <BioShock <Colin McRae: Dirt <Enemy Territory: Quake Wars <Overlord <The Witcher <Tomb Raider: Anniversary >>594678 >Alien Shooter: Vengeance That was actually released in 2006. >>594849 >you could even cull all sequel games from the list altogether and just recommend certain series in their stead We could see about doing that later because some people, early on, we talking about making a "best of" list altogether rather than documenting the best every year for the past 30 years, which I could see getting on board with since Deus Ex and F.E.A.R. we unanimous for the years they were recommended.
>>594827 >lego star wars >Stalker >world in conflict >crysis >mario strikers Dementium was shit, why was it even recomended?
>>594861 <All those Valve games Oh God I completely forgot about Portal. You could probably just take out HL2 altogether and put in the Orange Box for 2007 since it has everything. Left 4 Dead came out in '07 as well but it's safe to say the sequel should be on the list instead. So right now I'm leaning towards: >CoD 4 >Crysis >Lego Star Wars >Orange Box (HL2, TF2 and Portal) >S.T.A.L.K.E.R. SoC Sure it's mostly all shooters but I reckon they're the standout titles of that particular year.
>>594862 Because there is no quality control and the first thing that is blurted out is being taken.
Here's the final list for 2007: >Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare >Crysis >Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga >S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl >The Orange Box With the honorable mentions of: <BioShock <Colin McRae: Dirt <Dementium: The Ward <Enemy Territory: Quake Wars <Mario Strikers Charged <Overlord <The Witcher <Tomb Raider: Anniversary <World in Conflict >>594862 >why was it even recomended? Because the list was originally compiled based on games people actually played. >>594867 >You could probably just take out HL2 altogether and put in the Orange Box for 2007 since it has everything. Considering how, for months, The Orange Box was the only way to even play those games, I think it can be considered the exception for that year.

>>594908 It released in US in 2007, and that's all that matters I know because I pre ordered it And if you want to be technical, in russia it is known as "Alien Shooter 2", only overseas copies(released in 2007) were known as "Alien Shooter Vengeance", so I am technically correct The game, obviously, didn't get any traction, so it's not getting on the list. Put it in the honorable mentions list, it doesn't matter to me if it's in 2006 or 2007

Printing it out physically might prove to be a challenge (amount of color ink used, paper printed, & putting it together) since I forsee it being larger than those cards /v/ made in the past for yoko taro & nintendo, but I'm sure compromises could be set once we reach that point in chart making.

My list is a bit more obscure than I would have thought for 2008, I mistook some of the games I remember playing, and it turns out they were released in 2007 or 2009. Turns out most games I played that year were eastern It should be noted, if Iron man gets on the list, that almost every single version of the game is seemingly different, so trying different console releases should be recommended
So far, 2008 looks as follows: >Audiosurf >Dead Space >Iron Man >Spelunky With the honorable mentions of: <Call of Duty: World At War <Fallout 3 <Frontlines: Fuel of War <Grand Theft Auto IV <Left 4 Dead <Nanostray 2 <Pure <Saints Row 2 Still waiting on my input before finalizing this. >>594987 >It should be noted, if Iron man gets on the list, that almost every single version of the game is seemingly different, so trying different console releases should be recommended My preference of the title comes from playing the PSP/PS2/Wii/PC version. However, it looks like you cannot really go wrong with either that or the HD console version of the game. The only version people tell you to avoid is the DS version.
>>594953 >dead space >spelunky >castle crashers >saints row 2 Havent played the rest, and while i played and enjoyed edna & harvey, it is not top 5 material.
>Iron Man Isn't it known for being very subpar and boring?
>>595002 I think a AAA title should be in the last spot, something along the lines of Cod WAW, Fallout 3, GTAIV or Saints Row 2. L4D shouldn't be here, as L4D2 is L4D+, and there is little reason to own the original when it exists >>595004 >edna is not top 5 material I agree with you, and also >>594824 There should be more games that people actually bought and made an impact on the industry, it's fine to put games that are lesser known or those that only you played, but they should be kept to "honorable mentions". I looked back in the last thread, and that half life example is pretty stupid, while it's true that a lot of really good games came out that year, and there is no way to fit them all, including some random game that a few people might have liked was a mistake. This should be kept in mind when going forward, the list of suggestions for each year is suspect at best sometimes, remember that this is NOT the list of what 8chan likes, but what western games are worth playing, aimed at easterners no less >>595007 It could be argued that a lot of these games strangely seem to be just that, but as someone who is both fan of Iron Man(comic) and actually played the game(PC version), it's quite alright. It's got a lot of fanservice, and it's a decent little action game. If you don't like capeshit, you might want to give it a pass There are also a lot of versions of the game, you should elaborate when telling us which version of the game you meant
>>594631 Fuck,forgot to mention J'n'G,I swear I was about to post it earlier on Oh well
It should be mentioned that the Japanese release of Fallout 3 is censored to avoid getting banned there >The Fat Man weapon was renamed to the Nuka Launcher, due to the original name having been named after the bomb dropped on Nagasaki. >Mr. Burke was removed from the game, disabling the option to nuke Megaton in "The Power of the Atom". This was done because of the taboo regarding nuclear weapons, especially those used by the protagonist, in Japanese media. It's still possible to complete the quest by disarming the nuke. >Human decapitations are disabled. Ghoul and monster decapitations are unchanged.
>>595018 fallout games are extremely moddable, and it is a minute change to bring all that content back(aside from maybe adding in mister burke, who I think is deleted from the game), that should be mentioned as a matter of fact, I think it would be better to simply suggest buying a western release and downloading some sort of japanese language pack When we get to New Vegas, western releases are also similarly superior, due to some questionable changes(nuka launcher, no gore like in F3, changing cannibal perk to some sort of weird "devour their chakra" perk that plays the animation without showing blood ect), and for having a universally panned dub nobody really liked, english dub with japanese subtitles should recommended for that game, alongside a western release if possible
>>595008 >remember that this is NOT the list of what 8chan likes, but what western games are worth playing, aimed at easterners no less See: >>591539
>>595018 Wow, I didn't know that. Nips are pretty problematic as it turns out, huh.
>>595032 If you can believe jim 'not taking your games away' sterling LOL, he said they were disappointed of the change Fallout 3 censored in Japan: Nuke gets nuked >According to reports, the reaction from online Japanese gamers has been one of disappointment. Unfortunately, in the evasion of a politcally incorrect sh*tstorm, people inevitably have to get let down. These edits are understandable, but it’s tough luck for the gamers as usual. https://archive.ph/pTDIB I don't have screenshots on me right now, but most of the problem comes down to CERO, their rating board. Fallout 3 de-nuked in Japan https://archive.ph/pTDIB >Bethesda also said certain human and ghoul animations have been deleted to conform with the standards of the Japanese game-rating body, Computer Entertainment Rating Organization (CERO). However, the release notes that the majority of animations, including those for insects, monsters, animals, and robots, remain unchanged from the US version, as does the amount of bleeding, number of corpses, and the gore bag.

>>595041 >how can making a simple list be this difficult for modern day /v/? Because the first requirement for the list was for people to submit games that they actually played, which resulted in titles seemingly "average" or "trash" getting listed above "quality" releases because, surprisingly, perception is a terrible gauge of quality compared to experience.
>>595046 That's going to make some more recent years very interesting. If you can't even agree with each other if something like half-life should be on the list or not, I can only imagine how awful this list is going to look in the late 2010s or the early 2020s, since I know you niggers don't actually play any newer games
>>595041 Don't remember much about the kids, but yes 'morphine' was changed to 'Med-x'. The wiki however claims that all regions of Fallout 3 weren't including real-world drug references anyway. fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Med-X_(Fallout_3) >Originally, Med-X was named "morphine" in the game. However, on July 4, 2008, Fallout 3 was refused classification by the OFLC in Australia, thus making the game illegal for sale in the country due to the "realistic visual representations of drugs and their delivery method [bringing] the 'science-fiction' drugs in line with 'real-world' drugs." On September 9, 2008 Bethesda Softworks's vice president of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, described the idea of the Australian version of Fallout 3 as a misconception, and said all versions of Fallout 3 will not include real-world drug references. Here is the most interesting part though despite the nuke references being wiped & Mr. Burke being erased <However, the name "morphine" is still used in the Japanese and Czech versions of the game.

Okay I know this is >Mr Shitface but I nominate Brutal Legend for a 2009 game. Once you put aside all your misgivings about Shitface and Jack Black it is a genuinely enjoyable game particularly if you like British and American metal. It doesn't get any more western than this, as metal is something almost exclusively associated with the west. Japan doesn't know much about this lifestyle so this could be a great introduction for them. And yes I also nominate Arkham Asylum.
Thus far, for 2009: >Batman: Arkham Asylum >Ghostbusters >Left 4 Dead 2 With two slots still open that can be filled by the following: <Brutal Legend <Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 <Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood <Cursed Mountain <Halo Wars <Killing Floor <Overlord 2 <Prototype <Punch-Out!! <X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition <Zombie Shooter 2
>>595244 >ghostbusters >minecraft >punchout >arkham asylum >prototype
>>595713 I would vote for Killing Floor and Zombie Shooter 2, but I don't want 3 zombie games on the list, and both L4D2 and KF are FPS games. That said, I will vote for Zombie Shooter 2 and Halo Wars, former because it's very obscure and needs some more exposure, and latter because it's an overlooked RTS due to it being released on consoles and under a dudebro franchise. Honestly tho, most of these games could make the list, 2009 was another great year for gaming, but these are my tastes
Forgot to mention that Halo Wars was Ensemble's swan song, the studio had to shut down not long after, so that's another reason why I think HW is relevant
And, we have two games too many: >Batman: Arkham Asylum >Ghostbusters >Halo Wars >Left 4 Dead 2 >Prototype >Punch-Out!! >Zombie Shooter 2 Which two should be pushed back to honorable mentions: <Brutal Legend <Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 <Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood <Cursed Mountain <Killing Floor <Minecraft Classic <Overlord 2 <X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition
>>595750 If I had to choose, it would be Zombie Shooter 2, for the same reasons I gave above, but also ghostsbusters, both for being a rather obscure game outside of people who were the fans of the films, and because I remember the reviews were rather mediocre at the time. If the list for 2009 was >Arkham Asylum >Halo Wars >L4D2 >Prototype >Punch Out I couldn't really complain
Final list for 2009: >Batman: Arkham Asylum >Halo Wars >Left 4 Dead 2 >Prototype >Punch-Out!! And, the honorable mentions: <Brutal Legend <Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 <Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood <Cursed Mountain <Ghostbusters <Killing Floor <Minecraft Classic <Overlord 2 <X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition <Zombie Shooter 2 If there's no objections, we'll move onto 2010. >>595754 >but also ghostsbusters, both for being a rather obscure game outside of people who were the fans of the films, and because I remember the reviews were rather mediocre at the time. I can understand removing Ghostbusters. It's still a great game, but rather average in some respects when you take away the property it's tied to, as well as the cast.
>>595762 >I can understand removing Ghostbusters Speaking of which, I saw the posts about 1998(half life) and now, we have a similar situation: some people might be asshurt that minecraft isn't on the list, given how popular it was, and still is today. I suggest we add a 6th spot for every year once the list is done, one reserved for the most influential title of that year, not necessarily the best or most liked titles. The examples for 1998 or 2009 would be what I just listed, games could be taken from either the main 5 or honorable mentions, and naturally, if one of the 5 is placed in the "influential game of the year" category, an honorable mentions game would take it's place This would solve the complaints and also give people a reason to discuss which game fits that spot the best. Something to think about going forward, if nothing else, a short description as to why the game is there would be a nice addition to the compilation. The caveat would have to be that anons would have to write why they think game x should be on the list, rather than just listing off 5 games they liked without any further input, as has been done thus far, for some semblance of quality control, that would filter out, for example, Bubsy 3D from being the most influential title of 1996

My picks for 2010: Back to the Future: The Game Darksiders Limbo Metro 2033 Shantae: Risky's Revenge Honorable mentions: Alpha Protocol Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (half Spanish / half Japanese, does it count?) Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (or skip this one and hold for the 2012 improved sequel, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?) Super Meat Boy
>>595877 >Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (or skip this one and hold for the 2012 improved sequel, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?) I would hold, the sequel is a much better game.
Right now, both of these titles are secure for 2010: >Darksiders >Fallout: New Vegas It needs to be decided which of these games is the "odd one out": -Bioshock 2 -Donkey Kong Country Returns -Red Steel 2 -Sid Meier's Civilization V And, the honorable mentions: <Alpha Protocol <Amnesia: The Dark Descent <Back to the Future: The Game <Call of Duty: Black Ops <Castlevania: Lords of Shadow <Dead Rising 2 <Epic Mickey <Halo: Reach <Limbo <Metro 2033 <Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game <Shantae: Risky's Revenge <Split/Second <Super Meat Boy
My nominations are Starcraft 2 Halo: Reach Super Meat Boy Darksiders
>>595941 I would move Civ V out to honorable mentions.
>>595941 Red Steel 2 seems like an "Honorable Mentions List" game to me
How does this look for the final list of 2010: >Bioshock 2 >Darksiders >Donkey Kong Country Returns >Fallout: New Vegas >Halo: Reach With the honorable mentions: <Alpha Protocol <Amnesia: The Dark Descent <Back to the Future: The Game <Call of Duty: Black Ops <Castlevania: Lords of Shadow <Dead Rising 2 <Epic Mickey <Limbo <Metro 2033 <Red Steel 2 <Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game <Shantae: Risky's Revenge <Sid Meier's Civilization V <Split/Second <Super Meat Boy

>Deus Ex: Human Revolution >F.3.A.R. >Rayman Origins >Terraria >Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine These are my five. >>596033 >>596039 Thinking more about it, I don't think "influence" is any reason to have a game listed, and here's my reasoning. Say we were developing a chart for fighting games. Now, we all agree that SF2 would have to be included for reasons of it being an actually good game. HOWEVER, that wasn't the spawn of the fighting game genre, nor the entry that spawned the series. The origin of the genre was Data East's Karate Champ from 1984. In addition to that, you'd have to include the original Street Fighter from 1987 as that's what started the series. BUT, talk to anyone interested in fighting games and you'd almost never see anyone telling you that you should play those 35 year old games despite how profound their influences was on the genre, with reasoning ranging from how the game art too "archaic" to how they are not even "good games" according to their standards. Similar thing here. Why should we tell people that they should play a game because of it's "influence" when the game is mediocre and there were better games released at the time?
>>596119 Fug, then MK Dude Sex HR Alice Kerbal Rayman
>>596125 It will be interesting to see how games changed, year by year, and it will help with the influx of honorary mentions "Influence" might also not be the right word, I was thinking more about the most important game that came out that year, to put that era of gaming in perspective. Unlike the other 5 games, this one is also not subject to taste, which can vary wildly

>>596227 I debated putting Halo 4 in here, as it's not a very good game, but I can justify it as being the last "good" Halo game, and because it serves as an epilogue to the trilogy to wrap up the series. In case you don't know, cortana dies, and that ending is worth playing thru the game once alone, but the later games completely undermine it, obviously. I guess multiplayer was also okay, but at that point, 343 was in charge, so it went full retard and tried aping COD as much as it could. Still, if eastern games were also allowed, I would definitely put something else here
>Darksiders II >Hotline Miami >Need for Speed: Most Wanted >The Darkness II >ZombiU These are my five. >>596235 Out of curiosity, are you the same guy from the CoD thread who asserts that the last "good" game in the series is IW (IIRC)? Because majority of Anons dismiss everything after W@W as being trash, only begrudgingly admitting that MW2 and BLOPS(2) have some good moments.
>>596245 That can't be me, as I neither browse COD thread here nor did I ever say that. BLOPS 2 is one of those games that even people who don't play COD games admit is pretty good, as you said. All three modes(Campaign, Multiplayer, Zombies) were running at full cylinders at that point, and it was the last point in the franchise before the inevitable downfall began

>>596449 I see people posting lists for both now. So, my 2012 list: Dishonored Dust: An Elysian Tail Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams Mark Of The Ninja Spec Ops: The Line Honorable mentions: Dustforce Far Cry 3 Hotline Miami Katawa Shoujo Legend of Grimrock Max Payne 3 Rayman Origins Scribblenauts Unlimited Sine Mora The Darkness II

>>596227 >hotline miami >NFS most wanted >zombiU >deponia >sleeping dogs
So, which will take the final spot: >Call of Duty: Black Ops II >Need for Speed: Most Wanted >Sleeping Dogs >ZombiU

>>596880 Goddamnit, no one else picked Jamestown or Bulletstorm? They're pretty great.
>>596894 I heard bulletstorm was pretty good, but aside from a few gimmicks that overstayed their welcome, it wasn't anything to write home about. Then they added duke in, for some reason I just want another (good) painkiller game, or a serious sam game that doesn't try so hard to be a gimmicky piece of shit and just returns to it's roots
>Dead Rising 3 >Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon >Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death >Rayman Legends >The Amazing Spider-Man These are the five I'm going with. >>596900 >I just want another (good) painkiller game, or a serious sam game that doesn't try so hard to be a gimmicky piece of shit and just returns to it's roots If you haven't tried it, there's Kiss: Psycho Circus - The Nightmare Child. Also, what about things like Darkwatch?
>>596865 Late to the party, but Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed deserves an honorable mention. >>596874 >Battleblock Theater >Don't Starve >Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon >Rayman Legends >Risk of Rain <Payday 2 has changed way too much since its release to be honorably mentioned. My picks.
My 2013 list: Crysis 3 Grand Theft Auto V Shadow Warrior Shadowrun Returns The Stanley Parable Honorable mentions: Batman: Arkham Origins Guacamelee! Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine Papers, Please Rayman Legends Rise of the Triad I thought of including DuckTales: Remastered as a mention, but it's an American remake of a Japanese game.

>>597110 Here you go
>>597110 I missed a whole decade but let me offer some recs. >Alien Isolation >Dong Frozen >Shadow of Mordor >Talos Principle >Gaunlet Personal thoughts: >Alien Isolation It's a good game period, but it being sci-fi horror and authentic to the first movie is just the icing on the cake. I really dug the retro computer and VHS aesthetic too. It's one instance where it's done really well. >Dong Frozen Fun platformer. I could swap this for Strider or Shovel Knight in the event of a tie-break situation though. >Shadow of Mordor Another game that was fun. Raped the lore, of course, but it was fun right up until the final boss. Mercing orcs all day with the nemesis system was just good fun. It was like Assassin's Creed without the "every historical figure we like is a secret communist" bullshit. <Talos Principle Only played a bit of it but it was really good. A nice puzzler to round out genre suggestions. >Gauntlet Pure couch co-op four player fun. So fucking rare these days. Brought back memories of Gauntlet 64 but didn't quite live up to that game. A special note about Titanfall. Last I heard the servers were still completely fucked and since the first game is multiplayer only recommending what it effectively a dead game seems like a dumb move. I agree it's great and nips would love it with the mecha and the cuh-razy movement mechanics but the game is fucking dead and the multiplayer held to ransom by evil turbo autism. Hold off on this one and recommend Titanfall 2 instead, at least it has a single player campaign for japs to enjoy. >>597130 Strider and Shovel Knight are good too.
>Child of Light >Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor >Strider >Titanfall >Watch_Dogs These are my five.
So far, the list for 2014 is: >Alien: Isolation >Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor >South Park: The Stick of Truth >The Talos Principle With one slot left that can be filled by: -Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze -Strider -Titanfall -Watch_Dogs -Wasteland 2 And, the honorable mentions: <Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare <Child of Light <Freedom Planet <Gaunlet <Men of War Assault Squad 2<Shovel Knight <Mercenary Kings <Subnautica <Sunset Overdrive <The Crew <Toybox Turbos <TxK
>>597335 I'll take my vote back on Titanfall & save it for its sequel.
(1.81 MB 1280x960 ross01.png)

>>597335 Gimme Wasteland 2 then Shame Crew didn't make it, the sequel ain't that good, and it is a very unique game. Only drawbacks are that it's a ubishit title, which also means it is filled with microtransactions and ALWAYS ONLINE, so the game will inevitably die out one day
>>597335 Give the slot to Freedom Planet, show them how the West has out-Sonic'ed classic Sonic.
Then, this is the final list for 2014: >Alien: Isolation >Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor >South Park: The Stick of Truth >The Talos Principle >Wasteland 2 With the honorable mentions of: <Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare <Child of Light <Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze <Freedom Planet <Gaunlet <Men of War Assault Squad 2 <Mercenary Kings <Shovel Knight <Strider <Subnautica <Sunset Overdrive <The Crew <Titanfall <Toybox Turbos <TxK <Watch_Dogs >>597364 >show them how the West has out-Sonic'ed classic Sonic. But, Freedom Planet isn't that good of a game. Yes, it's well made, but the story sucks, and the gameplay comes across as like every other Sonic clone (See Fancy Pants Adventures) and fangame.

>>597373 Here is my list for 2015 I should add that I enjoyed Rainbow Six Siege somewhat, but I didn't put it on the list because I remember how Rainbow Six Patriots was CANCELLED for it, and what the current state of the game is, and that got me thinking about how original hobo-sam Splinter Cell Conviction was also cancelled, same with Rayman 4, ect. Wounds are too deep, so I refuse to put it on the list, I guess you can consider it an honorable mention, if it will matter(I doubt many people here play recent ubisoft titles, tho)
2015 >Crypt of the Necrodancer >Invisible Inc A turn-based stealth game >Killing Floor 2 A horror-based cooperative FPS centered around surviving a zombie apocalypse >Squad A multiplayer only team-based FPS >Tabletop Simulator A tabletop game night simulator

>>597389 >tabletop simulator must have been a slow year, huh? >Killing Floor 2 wasn't it shit and pozzed? Or did it become shit and pozzed?
>>597392 Never played KF2, but I think that release was when it became apparent that Tripwire was full retard. There was a post on their forum that, iirc, talked about their female characters not wearing swimsuits while it had a picture of Mrs. Foster from the original game in the shot.
>>597392 >must have been a slow year, huh? All years have been lacking since 2014. I hear there are one or two "winners" every year for a good game getting released, but the rest are either trash OR are genuinely good games that are bogged down by the developers being obnoxious morons that want to force their agenda everywhere. As for myself, I haven't played anything more recent than what was released back in 2014 as far as Western games.
>>597392 >>597400 Also, if you know of any good games from 2015, then go ahead and list them. Everything for the past 8 years was lacking in good games getting mentioned.
>>597400 I know I list COD and other triple A titles not popular here every year, but even that's better than shovelware indie titles, literally who adventure games, or borderline porn featuring lolicon. Just saying, I would save these kinds of games for the list of games I would personally chose, not ones I would give to anons to choose from for the first post of every year >If you know any good games, go ahead and list them I could, but most of the ones I played would be eastern, therefore not eligible for the list. I had to go deep looking for Skyhill and Pixel Heroes, but I'm glad I did because they were fun to play. Wikipedia has an article for popular/successful games released every year, if you need a cheat sheet >>597399 Doesn't look like I missed out on anything, then. Shame I missed the KF1 gamenight a while back

>>597409 I have a few cheat sheet charts for the next few years, but they'll need to be investigated to make sure they're western.
>>597417 Maybe edit out the pictures so games from eastern studios are blacked out, and just post that instead, add any other games that aren't on the list, if you're inclined. Keep in mind that if you post some sort of very obscure titles, even if you liked them, they will likely not be picked, maybe focus on more mainstream titles that people actually recognize instead, they're not all shit
>>597417 Was there a "cheat sheet" for 2015?
>>597424 I have not been able to find one for that year only what cuckchan says are its GOTY for 2015-2019. They have Life is Strange on it
>>597429 lol. not surprising, they probably have likes of fortnite and gacha games there as well
(519.66 KB 1914x532 2015 games.png)

>>597434 If you want a close enough cheat sheet, here's their chart with the games I believe are eastern blacked out. I didn't check every single one, just going by gut feeling. They also had Undertale as their 2015 GOTY
>>597437 Just noticed Bloodborne, ignore that
>>597437 To be fair, at least that game was more reasonable, as other people other than soyboys and teenage girls liked it tumblr and reddit also did Again, not surprised in the slightest. Still likes of Dying Light, Mortal Kombat X, Pillars of Eternity, Hotline Miami 2, Rocket league, Rise of Tomb Raider, Witcher 3 ect would be much better to put in initial post than Tabletop Games Simulator
>>597437 I'm not sure if my vote should count since I haven't played any of them except for HM2, but these were the ones I always had interest in: >Downwell >Fast Racing Neo >Just Cause 3 >Ori and the Blind Forest >Until Dawn
>>597444 (Checked) Until Dawn was a shitty FMV like game(obviously using 3D graphics, but made in the same vein as them) somehow released in the current year and charged for 60$. It's short, choices that matter are seemingly picked at random with no consistency or logic, and the plot is nothing to write home about, it's honestly not that far from the likes of "Life is Strange"
With the 2015 cheat sheet in mind, these games should have a spot. Fast Racing Neo Hotline Miami 2 Rocket League >>597444 Fast Racing Neo isn't F-Zero GX levels of cuhrayzee good, but it's as good as the Wipeout games. >Mortal Kombat X Isn't that when Netherrealm went full retard or was it the sequel where they hid characters behind DLC & censored cleavage?
>>597373 Then I'd have picked Strider. Oh well.
>>597446 What about Axiom Verge? I had little interest in that as something to look at later, mainly because all the reports were that "It's LITERALLY Metroid.". >>597450 >but it's as good as the Wipeout games. Which ones? PSX era, Fusion, or the PSP/Vita games? >Isn't that when Netherrealm went full retard or was it the sequel where they hid characters behind DLC & censored cleavage? Started to from what I can remember.
>>597450 I think they censored the cleavage somewhat, but the boobs were still pretty big. One thing that redeemed X was all the insane guest fighters that came one, like pretty much every horror movie character or rambo. Other than that, it wasn't all that decent, and it was filled with lootcrates, daily challenges that gave you barely any currency, worthless fan fiction plot ect. I admit tho, it was hilarious seeing Johhny Cage/Sony blade and their kids solving their family problems thru violence, or seeing dream fighting mashups like leatherface vs Alien from Aliens, but for the latter, you have MUGEN, and you get a lot more characters as well to boot
(207.02 KB 418x628 Boon.jpg)

>>597452 Fusion. >>597453 >it was filled with lootcrates, daily challenges that gave you barely any currency Oh yeah I remember that. I think it was one of the top complaints people had with the game, I recall them selling easy fatalities as consumable DLCs. There was a screencap where it compared the female character designs of MK9 versus X or 11.
I think this is the closes to a list that we'll get for 2015: >Crypt of the Necrodancer >Fast Racing NEO >Hotline Miami 2 >Just Cause 3 >Rocket League With the honorable mentions of: <Axoim Verge <Call of Duty: Black Ops III <Downwell <Fallout 4 <Ori and the Blind Forest <Pixel Heroes <Skyhill I'm being a bit loose with the options, but does anyone want to change it at this moment?
>>597594 Yeah, put Black Ops 3 in there. Black Ops 3 Was the swan song of the COD franchise, with arguably the best zombies and multiplayer mode, and a single player that tried something different, for once(both from storyline and gameplay points). This will probably be the last COD game on the list(aside from MAYBE MW2019), as the series goes to absolute shit from here, but this one deserves to be here Not sure what would replace it, I heard Just Cause 3 was kind of mediocre, or at least not as good as the previous 2, but I also voted for Crypt of Necrodancer, so that would do for me as well
>>597602 >Not sure what would replace it, I heard Just Cause 3 was kind of mediocre, or at least not as good as the previous 2, but I also voted for Crypt of Necrodancer, so that would do for me as well From what I heard, JC3 was basically JC2 with a grappling hook.
>No LISA in 2014 You had one job
>>597630 I thought all JC games had a grappling hook Well then my point stands, if it's so similar to other games, I would like to replace it with BO3
>>597637 I'm fine with BO3 if it's really the swan song of CoD.
So, this will be the final list for 2015: >Call of Duty: Black Ops III >Crypt of the Necrodancer >Fast Racing NEO >Hotline Miami 2 >Rocket League With the honorable mentions of: <Axoim Verge <Downwell <Fallout 4 <Just Cause 3 <Ori and the Blind Forest <Pixel Heroes <Skyhill Does that look agreeable?
>>597676 Looks fine to me
>>597676 I say so.

>>597676 One other thing, as I said in my post >>597386 I count Rainbow Six Siege as a "Honorary Mention". You should add that in Speaking of which, I believe there was some confusion over the 2007 "Alien Shooter Vengeance", over some technicality that the game was released in russia first, in 2006. Is this added to the honorary list in either year as well?

>>598858 I know I'm going to be the only one, but I do have to vote for Infinite Warfare. I made a big deal about BO3, and IW are very similar, both in setting and gameplay, they even use the same engine. It's a great game, but it had the misfortune of coming out at the worst possible time >no demand for another COD game >those that buy COD games are tired of jetpack games and don't want a third one in a row >to make the matters worse, trailer is one of the most disliked youtube videos of all time(back when that was a thing), so people who don't even play COD games joined the bandwagon and shit on it. I believe most people only bought it to get that shitty COD4 remaster, and they had to spend about 80$ on it at that. The game was dead before it even released, but as someone who played it, I think it could have had a decent community and an interesting meta, if it had time to grow. COD's biggest problem is that it is a yearly franchise, the games have a bout a year of life, sometimes less, and it's a shame that IW got to die so young, as Infinity Ward tried a lot of different things, but also took the franchise back to it's older roots, somewhat. The zombies mode was also fantastic, and a lot people who hate that game can at least compromise on that. All game modes were good, tho, and I loved how the game removed insistence of using "heroes" in multiplayer because overwatch did it, and went back to letting people play as regular soldiers. That wouldn't last long, sadly, look at the snowflakes they have in a WW2 game now Anyways, another game is going to win, because I am probably the only one who even played this game on this board. I will still have good memories with the game, even if I will be the only one left remaining who feels as such
>>598884 I disagree.

>>598884 >>598884 Anon, as someone who owns every CoD until MW3, and has played every CoD campaign until Infinite you need to kill yourself.
>>598858 I get the felling that the final slot should be filled by one of these: <Darkest Dungeon <Redout <Shadow of the Best <XCOM 2
>>599301 I think IW deserves the slot for it's zombies mode alone, campaign and multiplayer are passable, but not GOTY material. I made a more convincing argument than you, can you name why you would want one of these games on the list, or how they deserve to be on there over IW? >because it's COD, dude! unfortunately, not an argument. If we're going to be fair about this, let's hear your side of it.
>>599322 >unfortunately, not an argument. How about because you admittedly bitched and moaned about how BLOP3 was the "last" good CoD game, where everyone agreed to let that slide if it really was the last "good" one, and the other options were lacking for 2015, only for you to turn heel and say, "Well, actually, IW was the last 'good' one?" >can you name why you would want one of these games on the list <Darkest Dungeon Dungeon crawling RPG know for have an extensive management system and a great modding scene <Redout Zero G racer in a field starved with them, and as good as Wipeout when it was at it's peak. <Shadow of the Best A remake of near 30 year old platformer that turned into a great 2D character action game along the lines of GoW and Marlow Briggs. <XCOM 2 XCOM was already a good game and the second game just added more content without ruining it.
>>599328 >How about because you admittedly bitched and moaned about how BLOP3 was the "last" good CoD game, where everyone agreed to let that slide if it really was the last "good" one, and the other options were lacking for 2015, only for you to turn heel and say, "Well, actually, IW was the last 'good' one?" Have you read my post? I said they were very similar, because they are. Same engine, futuristic setting, specialists and laser guns, plus same game modes. When you look at them beneath their gameboxes, they are different, of course, but at the end of the day, for whatever reason, IW decided it wanted to do the same thing BLOPS3 did. That said, it would be natural for me to compare the two, I still stand by my decision that BLOPS3 is better, and the last good COD, but IW has some redeeming qualities about it, and I still think it deserves top 5 of that year, for reasons I said >XCOM 2 >XCOM was already a good game and the second game just added more content without ruining it. See? Not that hard, that's really what IW is, more of the same. Don't fix what ain't broke. I am interested, have you actually PLAYED any of these games? From what I am seeing, plenty of posters here don't actually know anything about the later titles, ergo the ones being posted more recently, as if they didn't play them and are just choosing something from a catalog randomly. Would you happen to have steam hours on any of these games?
>>599331 I've got 130 hours into XCOM 2, what are we talking about?
>>599339 just to be clear, are you >>599328 ?
>>599331 >Not that hard, that's really what IW is, more of the same <I still stand by my decision that BLOPS3 is better, and the last good COD, but IW has some redeeming qualities about it >have you actually PLAYED any of these games? The ones for this particular year, no. But, that doesn't stop autists from having objectively wrong opinions that contradict themselves, as you're already doing. No to mention other autists sperging about how games are better than they are. For example, the earlier discussion about Half-Life, where you have the one guy who was declaring that Half-Life was the "Greatest game ever" and "must" be included in the top 5 of that year, meanwhile everyone else was stating that he's wrong because they actually have played the game and there were better games that year than Half-Life. Now, that being said, either someone ELSE can confirm that Infinite Warfare is as good of a game as you say it is (Which doesn't appear to be the case: >>599008 ), and we'll see about including it. HOWEVER, if that doesn't happen, we're going to wait and see what other people have to say. >>599339 If XCOM 2 is worth being included as one of the best 5 Western games made for 2016: >>598858
>>599342 This is specifically a list of game people PLAYED. If you haven't played any of these games, they can't really be added, now, can they? You can say anything you want about IW, but I at least played it. I can show proof, of course, and if nobody else has any other titles they want to fill that spot, I think IW should be given 5th place. If anon who claims he got 130 hours in XCOM 2 can prove it, or anybody else for whatever game they want to fill the chart, that's fine by me. I just want this to be fair, for the same reason you stated: If Half Life wasn't popular because people here played something else this year, so be it. Same goes for including titles that might not be popular, if they were actually PLAYED that year, over titles that are more "popular", yet not played
>>599340 No, do I have to be? >>599342 From that list I've only played Darkest Dungeon, and I'd say XCOM 2 is much better than that. Best game of 2016? I wouldn't say that unless you include the expansion pack... which didn't come out until 2017, so that would feel disingenuous.

If anyone wants to powerlevel here and got more hours in any given game of choice from 2016, then I will concede my spot for this year I should make it clear, I was initially one of those people who HATED this game and wanted nothing to do with it. Once I got it for 5 bucks off some keysite, to clear out my debit card before switching to a new one, I fell in love it with. That should tell you how much I like this particular title, with how much I insist it makes it in, when I initially thought it looked like absolute shit. The only reason I bought it was because nobody cracked the zombies mode, so unfortunately, playing it is only possible on a "legit" copy(thankfully, the best map is the one that comes with the game, meaning no additional cost required other than 5$)
May as well add IW then so we can get closer to finishing the list of games & the chart itself can be discussed We are only five years away from completion

2018 >Hades A roguelike isometric dungeon-crawler >Kenshi >Kingdom Come: Deliverance A first-person open-world RPG that allows the player to completely develop their character >Overload An FPS with 720 degrees of movement and RPG elements >Rimworld >Synthetik >Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus A turn-based strategy game with exploration elements
>>599700 this is black ops 4, dummy I cannot deny that it was a failure, financially, and that due to activision's meddling and lack of time and budget for the devs, the game turned out to be a less than cohesive experience. The development history on this game is actually quite fascinating, but that's all you need to know: activision fucking up the studio, and the devs not being focused enough on their project. Then, on top of that, halfway thru it's yearly life cycle, they were forced to abandon the game and work on Cold War, due to Sledgehammer Games(makers of COD Vanguard) fucking up on it, and having Treyarch finish that mess for them. That left the game with little meaningful content past that point, aside from what was already completed, and some remastered maps for zombies >Why do you like it, then? Simple, I played the shit out of it, even when the free beta dropped. Despite the game lacking single player due to activision forcing them to(despite plenty of evidence suggesting it was going to be in the game, see pic related), it was replace with a hacked together battle royale that was made at the last minute. While it was fun(BR fans say it is basically just a polished up Unknown Player's Battleground with a COD skin), the real fun was in the Multiplayer and Zombies mode. Multiplayer is the purest COD I have played in a while, especially in the playlists with the bullshit specialist abilities turned off. This is a pure-skill game, if you fuck up even for a second during a gunfight, you're dead. If you know the map and you know just how many bullets you need to put in the enemy, you will be rewarded with quick and deadly engagements and plenty of time to heal, and then repeat while locking down a portion of the map. The mode is crazy unbalanced and lacks in content compared to previous COD games, but hot damn is it fun. BO4 multi will always be my guilty pleasure, it is just a shame they were fucked with by activision and had so little time to refine it Zombies mode is a similar story, it overhauled it's game mechanics just like Multiplayer did, and for the better. The game is now crazy hard, it is definitely intended for the veterans of the franchise, altho an easy mode is also available. Only a few brand new maps released, and rest were pulled from a scrapped DLC that was going to add in remastered maps, due to the issue with Sledgehammer and Cold War I mentioned, but that's fine by me. If every Zombies map was ported to this engine, this would be the only game I would play on an abandoned island, or at least be a serious contender for it, I loved how the game gave you a ton of extra toys and abilities, making the game really easy at the start so you can set yourself up, but makes zombies super difficult and makes them run extremely quickly, super fast, not to mention their improved AI that will actually try to flank you, if there are several zombies around, and cut off your escape route, even going as far as to slightly lean in your direction if you're close enough. Just like in multiplayer, it rewards those with skills, and it has plenty of side activities to do on every map. The game's story is also very fan-servicy, but on a bittersweet note, as this is the end of the zombies story mode, which started in 2008. That alone is worth a spot in my eyes, a worthy end to a franchise that consumed a good portion of my life. That said, most people didn't give the game a fair shake, and I can understand that, between lacking in content at launch and insane monetization that I am still disgusted by, not to mention lack of a cohesive setting due to cutting out the single player and not giving you context as to what you're doing, and the devs leaving halfway thru to work on another game and leaving it as a stillborn. At least Infinite Warfare came as a complete game, Black Ops 4 was strangled at birth by it's umbilical cord and left with health problems it was later mocked and shunned for. If you think I am too much of a fanboy, I actually made an entire thread shitting on the game back in 2018 here, shortly after the second exodus Everything you see in game was just cut content from the story mode, and made into a multiplayer only soulless cash grab, it will never not piss me off how activision left this game to die for a little bit of extra profit. Among the games released in that year, I do still think it belongs on the list for 2018, especially when most of the game's flaws are due to activision, and not the devs
My 2018 list: Ion Fury Kingdom Come: Deliverance Overload Spyro Reignited Trilogy The Messenger Honorable mentions: Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom Return of the Obra Dinn Subnautica
>>599722 Here is the preview of what the game could have been like. This is a 1-1 recreation of a multiplayer map "Seaside". I can only imagine how much better the game would have been if the BR mode was scrapped and instead an extra year would have been given to finish off the campaign, especially with the unique twist Treyarch wanted to put this time around, as far as gameplay went(and what cost them so much time), but I won't flood the thread with that. Just know the game had serious potential, and what actually made it in is a mockery of that idea. That said, what little meat remains is some of the best COD I have ever played, and I played a lot of it
I suppose now would be a good time to throw in Spyro: Reignited Trilogy since the nips finally got to play Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon 20 years after it's original release.

>>595111 >Jets 'n' Guns? Is that the game that you're talking about? Yep,most specifically the Gold version since it made it a full-fledged game with the story comic and twice as long story. You posted the cover of the old version(not to mention it's a russian cover that I've never seen before).Release year is 2006. It's a pretty great game and it deserves a honorable mention. I'm not gonna be mad if it doesn't make it,it's my fault afterall. In advance I'm requesting <Katana ZERO for 2019.
>>599952 >Katana Zero is it any good? Also, is was it actually made in the west? Your screenshot has a mild anime aesthetic to it,
>>600018 I liked it a ton, that said it was written by Chef Boyardee for better or worse.
>>600018 >is it any good It's a great game,however it is quite short. Justin is working on a free DLC(read:update),but it is still in the works. Worth an install.
So far, the list for 2018: >Kingdom Come: Deliverance >Spyro Reignited Trilogy With four slots left that can be filled by: <Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII <Dusk <Hades <Ion Fury <Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom <Overload <Return of the Obra Dinn <The Messenger <Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus <World War 3 May want to check the years on some of the games you guys listed. They've been available for a few years prior to 2018.
>>601168 For me it's WW3, Ion Fury and Black Ops 4 I don't actually think the game is worth a purchase in it's current state, for reasons I already stated, plus the abhorrent microtransactions and low player counts in a game with no proper single player, but I honestly haven't played any of these other games to have a proper opinion on them Plus, the zombies mode has enough content to keep one entertained, I supposed >Spyro: Reignited Trilogy Should HD remakes be added to the list? If they don't add anything substantial to the list, I don't know if they should be counted, maybe have a separate category for just remakes towards the very end, so the japs know which versions of the game to buy
>>601192 Anon i dont get how you can even consider black ops 4 and fucking WW3 to be the best of the year, those games are fucking trash.
>>599808 I suppose if this is the only way for the japanese to play spyro 3, since it didn't initially released, I guess it could be considered a new game in a bundle of previously released titles, similar to the orange box, which is also on the list
*didn't initially released there >>601196 I already made a post why I think BO4 deserves to be on the list >>599722 >>599733 as for WW3, it is constantly getting new updates, and with Battlefield shooting itself in the head with BF2042, it looks like it could be a serious contender in the genre for those kinds of conquest shooters, if it plays it's cards right. Hell, the team deathmatch mode on smaller maps already feels much better than most COD games released recently
>>601197 Not only that, Spyro 1 had completely broken camera in Japan.
>>601201 Ok, you liked it, that still doesnt make it worth a place. Theres plenty of games ive liked in all of these years and i have neither proposed them nor voted for them because me liking them doesnt means its part of a top. >>601204 >>601197 Well, if we are getting spyro then, then we might as well remove spyro from 1998 and give that place to half-life.
>>601205 half life 2 and orange box both made it, it's best to leave it be we will actually vote on the most influential title for each year after we're done with the initial list, so I assume half life will make it for 1998 >ok, you liked it BLOPS 4 is arguably one of the better COD games, but it is also buried underneath a mountain of problems, it is worth a mention at a very least, as it can be very fun at times, if not very accessible
>>601207 >but it is also buried underneath a mountain of problems, Well there you have your problem, i like blood omen and the LoK games, yet i kept arguing that they shouldnt be there because the gameplay wasnt very good, just because you like it doesnt mean it has to be there. >half life 2 and orange box both made it, it's best to leave it be The original half life is the better game.
>>601209 >The original half life is the better game. most people here will disagree with you >well there you have your problem in my post, I mentioned that vast majority of the problems lie with the way the game was advertised, it's predatory micro transaction practices, and lack of content due to activision's meddling and having to abandon the project to finish cold war for sledgehammer games. the game itself is good, but it feels more like a halfway worked beta, being all over the place. the zombies mode is fine, tho, as it has actual levels with lots to doand polished gameplay mechanics, plus it can be played by yourself
>>601210 >most people here will disagree with you You have never been in a half-life thread here then. >I mentioned that vast majority of the problems lie with the way the game was advertised, it's predatory micro transaction practices, and lack of content due to activision's meddling and having to abandon the project to finish cold war for sledgehammer games. Anon flaws are flaws it doesnt matter what caused then.
>>601213 look back earlier in the thread, for the purposes of this list ,vast majority of posters don't care for it. otherwise, it would have made it for the initial 1998 list, over 2004's half life 2 and the orange box later on >flaws I still believe the zombies mode alone is worth a spot for it. all games are flawed, and I don't believe other games that are suggested beat it out >>601168 speaking of which, why is kenshi not on the list? it is listed as a 2018 game on both steam and wikipedia
>>601219 >look back earlier in the thread, for the purposes of this list ,vast majority of posters don't care for it. the voting for 1998 came and went really quickly, hell i couldnt even vote on it. My point still stands, if we are going to put spyro reignited, then theres no point in having the original specially knowing theres no nip version.
>>601209 >The original half life is the better game Agree to disagree. Given that GoldSrc is a heavily-modified quake engine, HL1 (despite how good it is) is still a quake mod (Not to mention if you played Quake you can easily notice this). HL2 started out with a new engine(that aged well),better storytelling and new mechanics like better physics or even the motherfucking gravity gun which by itself BTFO'd original Farcry in the long run. last one might be a bit of a stretch Hell,it even sparked new game engines like quake did.Just to name a few. <fucking captcha,shit doesn't work
>>601230 don't forget that source engine regularly gets new mods and games to this day
>>601205 >>601207 >>601209 >>601210 >>601213 >>601219 >>601221 >>601230 >>601235 Made an thread so that you guys can discuss this: >>601239
>>601205 >Well, if we are getting spyro then, then we might as well remove spyro from 1998 and give that place to half-life. With that same idea in place, we should also remove HL2 from 2004 since it's included in The Orange Box.
>>601205 if you want to put half life maybe we put black mesa on 2015 instead
>>601655 The first release of Black Mesa was back in 2012: https://archive.ph/rjVHG
>>601647 why is kenshi not counted for the list in 2018? all sources say that's when it was released
>>601667 well shit, never knew that well, my point still stands >>601192 as for removing any games, let's wait until the very end and then we can deal with this autistic bullshit, as the 6th game/most influential votes get sorted out
if the nips decide to respond in kind and make a chart of their own, what are you planing on doing?
>>601655 >>601660 Black Mesa came out in 2020. The mod version shouldn't count as it was incomplete.
>>601785 >what will you do if nips make their own chart I'll play video games.
>>601785 Playing the games?
>>601819 >The mod version shouldn't count as it was incomplete. Yes, it should. If the game is available to be bought and/or played (Outside of a literal demo), despite continued development, it's considered to be released. >>601785 Look into the games they suggest.
>>601168 Haven't played those games to decide which should get picked
So, no one else has played any of the games in this post: >>601168
>>602658 I did and i voted for some >>599818
>>602661 Those were already listed in the list: >>601168
>>602723 It's clear nobody here has played any of these games. I already put the 3 games I would vote for >Black Ops 4 >WW3 >Ion Fury I would like Kenshi to be on it, but it seems I was beaten by a technicality That said, I can concede the last one, Ion Fury, if anyone wants to put anything else they liked here, as long as the former two are on the list. Remember, this is a list of games people PLAYED, so it's gonna get rough going forward
>>602776 Dusk is on the list, meanwhile Rimworld was released in 2016.
>>602781 3 selections for 2018 that are missing >Black Ops 4 >WW3 >Dusk Would this be a ridiculous idea? I just want to move on
>>602782 I insist, black ops has no place being in any fucking list whatsoever, i cannot even comprehend what kind of autism you would need to postulate it and defend your position on "no but they had potential!", its stupid.
>>602783 This is a list of games people played, and I played the shit out of black ops 4. I have no clue if shitty net lets you see how many hours you played, but I could show proof, if possible. I also said that the game's zombies mode was great, and so was multiplayer mode, lamenting only at the state of the game's launch and troubled history. Now that I think about it, both problems are more or less solved, as there is a greater amount of content ingame now, and the horrible microtransaction system is somewhat mitigated with a new system that lets you unlock all the new weapons for free, and that's all that really matters. I don't care if retards spend dozens of dollars on shiny weapon skins, nor can you do anything about it. >I don't like the game you are putting here we went over this with half-life, this is a list of games people played, not a general consensus on what the overall best game of all time is, and it's clear I played more BO4 in 2018 alone than all of you played other games released that year put together
>>602789 make a thread asking if it's actually good just like half life then
>>602791 I didn't make that thread, but the half life guy is autistic If you disagree with the list, there will be an additional title voted for every year at the very end, for which game is most influential, to avoid good titles lost in the sea of obscure games or call of duty games
>>601207 >half life 2 and orange box both made it And that's silly because Orange Box is absolutely irrelevant today. If you want HL2 or Portal, you're not going to buy a boxed copy, you just get it on Steam.
>>602824 anon, you could get it on steam back in the day, too. are you underage?

>>602782 >BO4 pls dont put that shit in the list even if it have potential because at the end the potential is not used >WW3 I checked steam review and one of the review said a very bad ping on asia as the server is only located at EU and US, also its an early access picrel
>>602859 I never had any problems with the game. The had a rough start, much like BO4, but it's starting to really come together >early access I tried getting kenshi on the list, but it supposedly went "early access" in the early 2010s, so I couldn't choose it, despite the "finished" product coming out in 2018. Same rules apply, the game had a decent amount of content when it came out, and it is steadily getting more >BO4 didn't use it's potential see >>602789 I don't want to flood the thread with BO4 info, but the game had a very promising future. The devs planned to have a very interesting game, that would be unlike any other COD game before it, but due to activision's meddling , only zombies came out unmolested, and largely multiplayer(altho things like the setting were changed, game was originally a direct sequel to BO3, which took place in 2055, and would follow the events of that game, as you sided with one of the two factions to create your new world order from the ashes of the old. Game had to change setting to a prequel of BO3 and sequel to BO2 at the last minute, and some assets still have 2075 year marks on their kits, despite the game taking place sometime between 2025 and 2055). I am furious I got robbed of a game that would be a proper sequel to BO3, given an extra year or two, especially with all the info coming out of it's pre-release. That said, the game is still good enough to be on the list, game might have been molested but it still came out largely as it intended to, minus the single player, which was relegated to a few salvaged cutscenes in a footnote of a menu, that make no sense without context. Game is still good enough without single player, as the zombies mode easily replaces it, but the promised single player looked so promising, that I can't help but still feel it's loss. It would have been unlike anything before it. At least duke nukem forever might get finished one day thanks to the community, Black Ops 4's single player is dead
Forgot to mention that WW3 should be getting worldwide servers soon, and the game will be going F2P supposedly, so there really isn't any reason not to at least try the game out. By the time this list is made and it gets circulated, I'm sure the game will be much more stable, most of these reviews are talking about the early builds of the game, as it is currently undergoing a very heavy makeover, public betas and all
>>602851 You could, so what? It was a bundle. Those games were not exclusive to it, and they were not remasters (that'd justify the Spyro Reignited Trilogy or the Master Chief Collection, in which the games are clearly different from their original releases). They're just a bunch of games that can be found elsewhere. So if you're listing great games, and HL2 or Portal are worthy of being listed, then you say HL2 or Portal.
>>603046 master chief collection literally prides itself on being very close to the originals, to the point where you can turn off the HD graphics and return to the OG xbox/360 visuals with a single button press. I will just assume you don't know what you're talking about from now on
>>603051 But it has the new graphics. It's not just a package with games identical to their versions outside of it. Portal in Orange Box is not some refined version, it's the same Portal you'd get if you bought it on its own.

I know the original intent was to catalog the games from 1992 up to around 2021 in an effort to get ahead, but since it's gotten difficult to recommend the recent games, I don't see any harm in stopping at 2017. That's still 25 years (or a quarter of a century) worth of games chosen. We could always revise the list again to include more years down the road. Think we should use some of that time to discuss how the list should be designed & possibly go over the honorable mentions since it's going to take time putting it together. If you still wish to engage in nominating more of the five games, that's fine too.
>>603092 Forgot to mention that there'll also need some time spent to research which Japanse versions of the games available suffer from censorship (if any) that other regions don't have this problem to be recommended.
>>603092 We're getting close to 2021, there is no need to stop now
>>601168 also, OP for the love of god just put that COD game on the list and shut that sperg up. let's get 2019, 2020 and 2021 knocked out so we can figure out what we have
>>603175 I'd have to disagree because the sperg has gone back on his word more than once and I get the impression he will keep recommending CoD games despite how terrible they are. Either because he's a shill for Activision, he's a rapefugee who got list on his way to Cuckchan, or he's a normalfag who has never played anything outside of the latest FPS fad.
>>603214 I disagree with your statement. If we keep going back and forth with our "tastes"(protip: nobody here has any), the list will never be finished. First the half life sperging, now the COD sperging, what's next? This will never end if the two sides keep going back and forth, the list is so ass backwards anyways that a few COD titles will neither make it better nor ruin it further. If you care that much, suggest something better in 2019
>>590501 We've already had great luck with spreading our info to them via images on twitter and then spreads further into the japanese web.
Then this will be the finial list for 2018: >Call of Duty: Black Ops III >Ion Fury >Kingdom Come: Deliverance >Spyro Reignited Trilogy >World War 3 With the honorable mentions of: <Dusk <Hades <Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom <Overload <Return of the Obra Dinn <The Messenger <Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus 2019 >Boneworks A first-person physics based action game >Gato Roboto A open-world side-scrolling run and gun game >Into the Radius VR A survival FPS >Noita >Outer Wilds A space exploration simulator that loops every 20 minutes >Risk of Rain 2 A survival-based rogue-like 3D platformer with multiplayer No one provided a chart for this year.

I should also point out, since someone mentioned this, that this is one of those games that actually requires skill to play, which is also why a portion of the ADHD riddled fanbase hates it, due to them not know how to play anything other than 3 lane small maps anymore(one of the cons of the black ops school of design). Similar hatred was given to COD Ghosts for the same reason, due to MW2019 being Ghosts 2 from the gameplay perspective in all but name(one of the maps is even straight from Ghosts, Ghosts did have much more problems than MW2019 tho, as should be expected from a prototype for this sort of game). This is also why I spend so much time talking about BO4, this is what it could have been if it weren't for activision, and if they were given more time: A golden standard that would be the template for all the newer games to come, as MW2019 is for the current generation of COD games >>603582 >My Friend Pedro Isn't that a borderline flash game? I recall it being a poor man's alien hominid, but I might be confusing it with something else
>>603698 Didn't indivisible get critically panned for a weak story and gameplay turning into a dps fest where your party members didn't matter ln the later half on beyond hitting the highest amount of damage possible? The sales figures for the game was said to be so bad that even if lab zero didn't get fucked over the series would've gotten shelved anyways?
>>603702 I honestly didn't play more than 5 WESTERN games for this year, I got it for the brown girl. I enjoyed it, but you're right, it's nothing revolutionary, it' good for one playthru there is way too little rule 34 of her
>>603704 Maybe just put the prototype on the list instead of the full game?
Anyone have any other suggestions for 2019?
>>603924 I don't think anyone here played any recent games, do you have 5 you could count for the list?
