Great game (maybe one of the best of all time)

Good price for this version.

I have not played the game myself, however I stated that it isn't one of the best games of all time, how did I know that? Well 25 years of playing games has taught me that it takes a lot more than marketing hype and huge sales to make a game "one of the best of all time", but what does make a game exceptional? Uncharted 2 is my favourite game of this gen, but I would never state it is the best game of all time.

Am I wrong? I would be interested to hear your thoughts.

I don't know why Halo is seen as such an amazing game, it's never interested me as I just thought it's so Quake like I'd rather play that instead.

Lemme check this Halo Reach out and get back to it.

Alot of people will say its not simply because they are cod fanboys. i dont even think you can compare the two. i myself love halo but i wouldnt say it was the best game of all time, i havent played everygame? its all down to personal opinion. each to their own.

None of the Halos are even top 50 of all time.

I'll start the ball rolling.
My "games of all time"
Resident Evil
Gran Turismo (there was no other game like it at the time)
Manic Miner
Metal Gear Solid
LittleBigPlanet (nothing else like it, has its faults but worthy)
Final Fantasy VII
Pac-Man
Space Invaders
Tetris (not a big fan myself but worthy of "best of all time" mention)


Hmmmm, sure I'll think of more later.

Meh watching gameplay videos it seems the same old Halo tbh.

= crap

I've had every Halo, and for me its not evolved since multiplayer was introduced, campaign hasn't differed since the original halo was released, so is reach the best game of all time? No.

Short answer = No

Wow, took me 6 minutes to think of my preliminary list....

For me, nothing has beaten Super Mario 64 or Goldeneye, damn even Diddy Kong 64 beats a lot of games right now lol.

Games of lately I'd say the MGS games are in my top 10 that's for sure.

Yeah Halo Reacharound isn't anywhere near the top.

Played some Age of Empires 2 last night, that's still a great game. Used to play it all the time.

Hmmm while I do agree it's not one of the best games of all time, it's better if you've actually played the game to back up your opinion.

NO
NO
NO
NO

hard to choose, all i can say is that no modern game would get my vote.
happiest time playing games = spectrum
best gaming era = snes/megadrive

i do have it, but not got round to playing yet.
best game i have played on this generation of console is Batman Arkham Asylum

Sadly I never got to play those games but I can honestly say I regret it, I went past the N64 from SNES to PS1. I think I missed a lot of good games...

I know, I understand that, however I did play Halo 3 and from what I've seen/read about Reach it's not a completely different game to that, a few graphical improvements and a few extra modes do not make it a different game.

Rubbish. it has a different storyline for starters or does that also make it the same game? there are perks such as spint etc.. which is a new feature. the forge mode is amazing a massive improvement from halo 3.. new weapons and maps...

im not for one second saying its the best game out there blah blah but please atleast have played it before you say its the same game as halo3. it really isnt.

Yup you missed out hugely.

Buy a N64 now and play it.

It's a crap game perhaps halo 2 or 3 can be seen as one of the best multiplayer games

I think you are missing my point, it's one of those games that you don't need to play to know that it isn't "one of the best games of all time", I doubt even Bungie would ever make that claim.

well if you had stated that was your point to begin with maybe it would have been clearer.

Sensible World of Soccer
Tetris
Hexic
Wetrix
Red Alert 2
Classic Marios + Mario 64

Resident Evil 2 - PS1......amazing.

I thought I had at the top of this page tbh... I never said I'd played it, that was the whole point of the thread.

Halo combat evolved yess defo one the greatest games of all time. Haloreach best multiplayer

lololol

It's all subjective, how do you quantify 'best'?

It's good, but certainly not my favourite game
