Name a video game series with no bad games.
>Protip: You can't.
B-but Dark is not a sequel to Demon Souls
>Soulcalibur is repetitive and the combat is shitty
>Farcry 4 is a shitty reskin of farcry 3 with almost no new content.
>Need for speed is the poor mans forza
You're to optimistic anon don't worry it'll fade
I ordered 4 on PC.
Couldn't play it for over a year til patched.
When I did, it flickered when you used the mouse to scroll so I felt nausated.
Never bought anything from Rockstar after that.
Halos streak ended at 3, odst was iffy if you considered it an addon to 3, but alone was unquestionably shit, reach was trash, 4 made reach look good by comparison, and 5 is an absolute shitshow with a shitty campaign and blatant pay to win multiplayer. Hell, the "hunt the truth" podcast is better than the actual game. It's sunk to the point where it's advertisements have better content than the damn game
That's a very hard one.
But I think the Age of Empires series by Ensemble Studios is flawless. Note: BY ENSEMBLE STUDIOS so don't count that Age of Empire online garbage in there
This is almost true, the old ones were good for their time, although they don't really hold up to modern standards, but the real point of contention is 4, people either love it or hate it.
fallout 4 was literally worse than tactics lmao
I won't argue on M&B, have 1300 hours on steam on Warband, but tbh the original M&B is a bit shitty, and if you count The Caribbean (I think it was called that way) you're fucked. Still, Warband is 10/10.
And Vanilla Cliffs of Dover is SHIT, with the ATAG mod it is the best WW2 Air Combat game.
I would disagree on the case that reach is bad I would say it has the most meaningfull story with well flushed out characters. Halo 4 was rsther mediocre amd 5's gameplay is fun but the advertising of the campaign was misleading and brings back cortana felt like a copout
Most everything in this thread is shit RPG/FPS fucking utter trash. Don't know if anybody mentioned Fable, I love Fable and only Fable. And Morrowind, ONLY Morrowind and Fable.
L2RTS n00bs. Homeworld, Sins of a Solar Empire, Endless Space, maybe, possibly, FTL.
I don't use this phrase much but, get a life faggots.
Fallout 4 is weird, it loses a lot of what was good in the older games, but it also adds a lot of good stuff that's new, IMO it about evened out. Now, if we were to have a game that was to it what new Vegas was to three, well that would be godly.
As RTS, i'd go with the Homeworld series, Cataclysm included. It's my favorite. Others would be Red Alert, Ground Control and DoW.
i'm a huge mgs fan suprised no one ripped this guy a new one, mgs1 is overated trash that should/would be the first one, the story of mgsv is garbage, i still play it but only because fucking around in free roam is some of the best stealth in any game ever to bad you need to beet the near 100hr story to get the best items
>get rekt faggot
The Endless series. Endless Space, Endless Legend, Dungeon of the Endless. The upcoming Endless Space II looks fucking mind blowing.
Homeworld. Even the prequel they just released is good.
Sniper Elite. Each game gets better. Also gave us the Nazi Zombie Army series, which is fantastic.
I would disagree the characters were more interesting and actually had facinating backgrounds. And the environment is populated with intresting locations to explore I can concede that some parts were over simplified to appeal to a new audience. But overall I would say it was a decent entry to the series.
>>Protip: You can't.
Starcraft. I don't give a fuck what anyone has to say, I've been playing that game since the originals pre-release and I am still just as much as a fanboy.
There is only one correct answer to this. Shadow of the colossus, they had good shit and were smart enough to quit while they were ahead instead of dragging it out into the damn ground.
have you played the original xbox live's, what i used call the xbl red light district, tetris, fucking sticky mode homie. it was basically some form of (maybe) weird early webcam porn, via connected webcams with users "playing" games online.
Yes, NOLF 1 & NOLF 2. Great games with lots of funny moments. I loved the stealth in the 2nd game. In levels with snow, the guards would spot your footprints and they investigated their trail. I was blown away by its mechanics.
i never beat the first one, felt to repetetive, 5 or 6 games later
U haven't played multiplayer to compare games in this series. Multiplayer in AoE3 is much more fun to play than AoE1&2. There are many good games with shity stories and AoE3 is one of them
Chracters were really mediocre. It's like they're all part of a highschool drama play. Dragon Age Origins and Inquisition had amazing character development. Heck, even Witcher series. Fallout 4 is like junior high levels of writing.
I was a diehard AoE fanboy since the first game and I just couldn't get over how much worse it was from 2. AoE2 was the pinnacle of the series to me, and mythology was a let down. 3 was a lobotomy.
haha, bayonetta 2 was so bad it made me wanna kill myself, i beat the first 4 levels without dying thinking, wow, seems easier than the first game, then in look up difficulties, i was on the hardest one, maybe this doesn't count, but i was just playing them and they are a series of games separate from the rest of the series
>fire emblem por/rd
not sure if other anons played them, they're hard to come by but i think you can emulate them
homeworld (even the new one is pretty good)
XCom (counting the originals and the reboot as a series)
Mass Effect (granted, ending of the 3rd was terrible, but overall it was still a great game, so im counting it)
Halo/ Bungiefag here. Would love to have been able to include Bungie's Destiny in this thread. But I, like everyone else, have been thoroughly disappointed in it. That said, The Taken King expansion fixed a lot. It's better, yes- but not what it could've been. Still.
Also, Portal, Half Life, Star Wars Outcast, and System Shock.
MK 4, Shaolin Monks, Special Forces, vs DC
Arkham Blackgate and Origins
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 unbalanced piece of shit
KH Recoded and 358/2 are awful
You could name more, but it'd probably be more shit
i wasnt trying to earthworm/jig/fly/spoon/top water bass/weedless daredevil spoon/muskie heavy lure/smelt cage bait, just RTS are better than FPS or RPG.
yeah i actually fish though. ice fishing is for faggots. its like setting out a salt lick and putting a hide/tree stand 20 feet away. wait for the ice to melt and actually fish, dock fishing is more honorable.
>inb4 real men fish for sharks
sorry i live in the woods otherwise i would.
>Super Smash Bros
And it looks like anon won the thread, congratulations
Poor Unity got such a bad rap lol. I'm replaying it now and it's great; reminds me of when I first played 2 and was all hyped about it. They fixed all the crazy shit that plagued it on release, but I think by then people were too pissed and disillusioned.
That's cheating. OP didn't specify this. He said any game series. This includes non canon games.
Besides the shitty ports of the better games, I would say for now it's Doom. New Doom might change this though.
Literal oldfag here (I'm 35) can confirm Battlespire was a piece of shit. I used to use Elder Scrolls as my answer in these until someone reminded me that that abortion existed and I realized I lost.
But, Mass Effect and Deus Ex still win.
Bethesda, Bethesda never changes. Almost all their games seem to follow a certain formula. They have wide expansive worlds but no depth. They're just pretty to look at, like dumb supermodels. All they need to do is to team up with a good writing department.
>2 mentions of Deus Ex.
The fuck. Deus Ex is pretty much the most cyberpunk of anything ever made.
I live for this shit. -Xander Cage
When the new Deus Ex drops later this year I might just kill myself due to it's excellence.
Lost frontier was not made by Naughty Dog and therefor I don't consider it part of the series.
The same way DBZ fans don't consider DB GT part of the normal series because it's made by entirely different people and is shit.
If I could I would punch both of you in the face. There is nothing wrong with brawl. Every single smash bros is golden. You guys are just being contrarian faggots.
>what is crab mentality?
Why does everyone say 4 isn't good? I've been playing the series for years and the game feels fine to me. It feels a little too easy but other than that the only thing that people like bitching about is the new mechanics.
FUCK was it really so bad I remember it as a mod?
I thought Invisible War was god tier, personally. I haven't played it since I did when it was first out but it was a great game. This is not the first time I've seen it getting hated on /b/ but I don't see why.
