Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

With the 60th overall pick in the video game draft, GGI selects:

https://variety.com/2018/gaming/news...es-1202893715/

Think about this, if you will, this game came out in September of 2013 and is still in the top 10 sold games every single month in current day sales.

While the other GTA games gave you freedom to run wild in an open city GTA V allows you to do this and so much more. GTA online lets players do basically what ever they want with anyone they want to anywhere in the world.


Plus think of all the memeable stuff that comes from this game:

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

I know the online world has made some big improvements to GTAV, but man I just couldnít get into it. Like it just felt like the core GTA Gameplay hasnít really been improved that significantly since the original GTA III. While other games like Destiny have brought in open world games with great FPS mechanics, GTA still had super clunky feeling shooting and fighting mechanics.

Yeah universal truth isn’t measured in mass appeal and gta is overrated it’s def fun but not worth that amount of sales

GTA is probably the franchise that I have the least interest in tbh

Irrelevant of what anyone thinks about this game, facts are it's the third highest selling game of all time, behind tetris and minecraft.

Obv doesn't mean its good just cause people bought it but 100m is a huge number.

What troubled sleep have you known, to speak of my dreams? No matter how sweet, a dream left unrealized must fade into day. Only with power can dreams be made real! I see the truth of it now. What good, dreams, without that power?

With the 61st overall pick in the draft, Tehtoes and Captain Binkles select

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

I'm aware I'm well behind on write ups and will catch up this weekend, but for now I'll keep taking games in my top 10 and select Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, for my money the best of the 3D trilogy and the GOAT soundtrack

Sounds like we have a real fight on our hands between the licensed music of Tony Hawk and GTA for GOAT soundtrack

GTA III and VC really were great. I never did play through SA and didn't touch V, but man were 3 and VC good.

VC was the best for creating an era but I still like SA more.

I found SA a bit too linear at least in terms of story progression for my liking, in VC the whole second island is basically open ended, and the first half isn't even that long once you clip through the map to get an early helicopter

Back to McGlaven's spot for pick #63, these were people who asked to make a pick but honestly I think anyone who wants to fill in can have it. Like if you're reading this and have a pick in mind just write it up and the slot is yours. Also let's autoskip it and get to Kafja's next pick.

I was talking about the soundtrack. I do think VC is a better game. I picked SA the game because it was my first GTA but I was hoping Iíd get VC as well!

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

I was flabbergasted that a Sonic pick didn't go til just now

People don't really remember with hindsight, but at the time the Nintendo vs Sega war was a real thing, and Sonic was for a time a viable competitor to Mario

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

16 bit Sonic is better than 16 bit Mario and it's not really close, but they had too much ground to make up at the time

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

Catch up write up

Round 4 Pick 40 - Street Fighter 2 Turbo







In the early 90's, SF2 was a system seller. It's really that simple - I sold my NES to get the cash to buy the SNES to play this game - and while at the time it was the non-Turbo version which was later acquired, that the SNES had the definitive version of the arcade smash gave it a huge edge over the Mega Drive/Genesis.

Prior to SF2, there was not really 1v1 fighting game genre at all - there may have been games that had some elements, but SF2 brought everything together - it had a range of wildly different characters, it inadvertently introduced the concept of combinations, and the Turbo version improved on this by adding faster game speeds, making the end of game bosses playable, and introducing larger move sets for many characters. It was such a smash hit in the arcades that it's believed to be one of the three highest grossing games of all time, inflation adjusted, per lolwiki, keeping the whole concept of arcades alive against the onslaught of home computer/console systems. It really is hard to understate how big an influence SF2 had on the gaming landscape at the time.

Lineup:
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Starcraft: Brood War
Super Smash Bros Melee
Street Fighter 2 Turbo
Metroid Prime
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
