There's like 5 million Sonic games in this countdown, more then Pokemon actually and you don't see people complaining about that :-? Stop picking on Pokemon! :lol:
'Cause we have to even out the playing field somehow, sis. Pokemon is overpraised as it is, but that didn't stop you from voting for all 5,000 titles in the series. :P (well, except for one)

Well that's what I will be doing next time, asking you to pick only your favourite one from whichever gens you wish to vote for. :lol: :wink:

Btw Meg have you ever tried Monkey Island before all of the first 3 were available for DOS?
There should be a limit of 3-5 titles per series in 2016 tbh. Image

^ Surprised you aren't upset about Sonic leaving tbh! :lol:

#20 Donkey Kong Country (117Pts)
This is CLASSIC, the graphics, the music, the extreme fun and level design is brilliant. Definitely among my fave platformers. Aquatic Ambiance too! :cry: :cry: :cry:

#18 Sonic The Hedgehog (123Pts)
This was such a fast and fun game!!! The first 1-3 Sonic games were great but the games were never even remotely matched since.

Kingdom Hearts 2 and PW slaaay.

2 is way better than 1 imo, 1 is like a 7; 2 is a 10

YASSSSSS!!! Looking back on my list I'm surprised I left this so low, it's an absolute GEM! So many childhood memories and still holds its own to this day!

Aquatic Ambiance is quite possibly the best music in a video game ever.

Skyrim: Even though its graphic's and AI was improved significantly, I just didn't dig the storyline at all, or hardly any of the side quests. Usually the guild and house quests are very interesting and make the game go above and beyond just the main plot line - but Skyrim was just about looking nice, rather then being nice. Shame though. But it's a fine game none-the less.

Rome Total War: Used to love this game so much, a strategy game that I actually enjoyed and loved the design of it. Was also a very satisfying moment to see Rome fall when you were playing one of the 'weaker' starting factions, and to actually see Egypt, Britannia or even Carthage start to rule most of the world and they would be your main competition. Surprised no one else even really plays this.

Mass Effect: #120 - saw that coming, not even surprised with this trilogy anymore. Ya'll flops.

Morrowind : Ya'll are kidding right? Morrowind sits at #130, while all these flop boring Pokemon and Sonic games are taking it out? I don't even think I want to participate in this countdown ever again to see how much of a flop it is for decent games. It's actually worse then Wayne's Female countdown. :lol:.

Eh / can't be bothered writing anymore after that. So let me just do this now:

OH WOW YAY!? Pokemon is at #1?!?! I didn't see that coming. Holy cow. What a fantastic placement for it. Loved the countdown CC. Much Wow. Such Stan. Whooo. Done.

LMAO you do realise Pokemon didn't even win last time? The Sims won :-? :lol: So stop your bitching!

I just realised the #1 had a HUGE drop, didn't it? Just as well, The Sims 2 is far superior anyway!

Look at all those voters for Pokemon X & Y! People bitch about Pokemon, but they have loads of fans :lol:

I loved X & Y, it was a fresh new feeling but I hardly ever used the 3D function on it cos it gives me headaches :lol:

And of course, The Sims 3! :D My #2! I said up there Sims 2 was superior to original Sims, but Sims 3 is even better! Such a fantastic game, addictive and brilliant 8-)

Not too keen on either the Zelda or Final Fantasy franchises, but Mario Kart Wii was the first Mario game I ever LOVED and purchased. I love it more than all but two Sonic games. :o

Yeah but those people aren't the ones bitching of course! :lol:

#15 The Legend of Zelda - The Wind Waker (127Pts)
Definitely my 2nd fave Zelda, I love the fresh and free feeling the game has, it's so good and re-playable which is a sign of a great game! 8-)

#12 Final Fantasy IX (140Pts)
I love all of the PS1 installments of Final Fantasy and had to vote for them all, this however is just so special and really stand outs for me, it has something about it that I can't quite touch upon that really appealed to me. Clearly not for everyone but one that is worth investigating.

San Andreas

The game is amazing. I remember the first time I played the game. It was in Turkey with two cousins. It really made my vacation epic. I really loved the open world and the interactions and also the missions. It was just a great adventure throughout the big world of illegal sh*t. Also, I loved to beat up the whores :lol:.
Cheating made the game even more enjoyable.
Although I remember the sex hack/content which was public in the past. It was so controversial :lol:. If that would happen today, I bet it wouldn't be as controversial as it was in the past.

Wind Waker

One of the Zelda titles I don't really like. The cell shading graphic was a big let down to many fans in the past. I understand why. After they showed the amazing (In 2002 or so, it was really a milestone!) beta of a Zelda for the Gamecube (To show what the Gamecube is capable of too)... And I still don't get, how they could go for a more childish graphic style. I also disliked the whole ocean floating. It was a pain in ass to me. At times, I felt like the ocean was really lifeless. Like it was just, there. No interaction or whatsoever.

Mario Kart Wii

I didn't really vote for it, because it didn't really make any fun. Not sure, why I felt like that in the past. Dunno. The motion control put me off too. The sound effect from the motion controller was also annoying and not needed. And don't even let me start with the hackers on online matches.

Surprised/pleased for Mario Kart DD and Pokemon Gen 4!

I was going to vote for DD myself, imagine if I did! It would probably have been #1 :lol:

Takes me back to being a kid, the game is perfection another genuine classic! :D

#09 Mario Kart - Double Dash!! (152Pts)
I completed and really enjoyed it when I played it but it's not one I'd consider for an all-time fave list, shocked it's so high up!!! :o :o

#08 Final Fantasy X (157Pts)
Great game, I couldn't fit in to my votes but it's the best FF I've played since the PS1 installments.

#06 Pokémon Generation IV (185Pts)
Meh, I won't be grouping them if I do it again, it only pushes them up the chart more! :lol:

Oh God Bill, make up your mind re Pokemon. So what happens next time, the rules stay the same now? :lol: Stop making voting complicated LOL.

But woo for both Sims 2 and Pokemon Gen IV!

My highest voted Pokemon game was from Gen IV, it was SoulSilver which is probably my fave Pokemon game ever! :D So much fun, a fantastic remake of Gen II! If I had to recommend one game from series, it would be SoulSilver or HeartGold cos it has everything you could want in a Poke game! I loved Diamond, Pearl & Platinum too but not nearly as much as SoulSilver.

I'm glad The Sims 2 ended up the highest ranking of the series - I love Sims 3, but I actually played Sims 2 a hell of a lot more. There were time periods in the mid 00's where I spent hours upon hours playing Sims 2 :lol:

My top 3 is gone now! I actually can't think what will be in the top 5 but I don't know if anything I voted for is in there. Have all the Pokemon games charted now...?

Well I made the voting clear from the beginning, so I'm not sure what you mean by this.

I don't like the grouping either actually come to think of it. I don't think Diamond, Pearl & Platinum should be that high cos they're not nearly as good as Soulsilver & HeartGold. They should be separated cos they're completely different games.

Are they really all THAT different though? :lol: Next time I was thinking of just asking you guys to vote for your fave within a generation instead of any of them.
