Wednesday April 22, Game faqs best game ever
« on: April 20, 2009, 08:38:57 pm »
I don't know if people have seen the Gamefaqs voting thing going on, but I'm quite certain that this would be great attention for the series, especially this far from Chrono Trigger DS's release. So this is kinda just saying we should all probably vote for it on Wednesday.

Thanks, I wasn't sure when it would be coming up. Still, I shudder to think of what's going to happen when Chrono Trigger goes up against Final Fantasy VII.

Yeah I've been following it.  What bugs me is knowing Phoenix Wright doesn't stand a chance against Twilight princess, Final fantasy XII and half life two.  On the first day.  But I have a feeling that this threrad won't last much longer as soon as V finds it.

Chrono Cross is up there as well.  CT has a shot, I'd like to see it win.  Hell, why not?

GameFAQs polls are stupid. I don't see how much attention it would bring to anything, really...Fans just vote for what they know & like and then ignore everything else (not like there IS anything else...just a pic & a poll option)...If they included things about WHY these choices were put up there, THEN I would support having an effing topic about them...but since they don't, they're useless and shouldn't even be mentioned here as far as I'm concerned...

How did I know he would say something like that as soon as he came?

Because you're an effing jenious...and maybe because I say it EVERY TIME these stupid polls roll around...Yet ANOTHER reason I hate them...The damn things manage to leak out into the forum cosmos and manage to find us here as well...V_V

Meh CT will get some votes but will probably be largely outnumbered by the FFVII fanbois.

But who cares about the stupid poll anyway

That would cause flamming which is against their rules.

No, I meant like an article for each choice that would be included before or after you vote that tells why the game is deserving of being on the list.

Regardless of the future outcome, looks like CT is doing well on today's poll (53.6%)  My guess is when it rolls around to CT vs the powerhouse fanbase driven FFVII we'll see the usual results.

First it has to knock out Castlevania:SotN, Mario 64, and SMW2: Yoshi's Island though.

My biggest surprise was Goldeneye recieving so many votes still.  I mean seriously?  I know it was a good game and all but it hasn't stood the test of time that well.

My picks for the division final are FFVII, Goldeneye, Mario 64, and Chrono Trigger, regardless of which I actually think are best, that's what the votes are going to show.


Edit:  I really hate how their brackets are set with transitional years dominating.  We have some of the best games going up against each other from different generation consoles, late NES vs early SNES, and late SNES vs PS1 and N64 titles.  Problem is a lot of gamefaqs users are young, having never played any games before '97, so they'll just wind up voting for the franchises they know now, like Mario, Sonic, etc.  How else could FF2 (SNES) and Megaman 3 beat out River City Ransom and Crystalis?

I'll admit I've never played River city ransom or Crystalis, but Megaman 3 is like one of the best Classic series MM games so that would still get my vote.

River City Ransom is good, but it's good for what comes down to a beat 'em up. Megaman 3 is like the best of that legendary series. I haven't played Crystalis enough to comment on it though...but, yeah, Sega RPGs don't get the cred because they don't have the base. FF2 shouldn't be beating anything...idk why it would even be on the list. There's better 8-Bit RPGs than it...FFI & FFIII, Mother, DQI-IV & Phantasy Star at least...I don't even know if I think certain genres should be competing against other genres...

AND GODDAMN IT NOW YOU'VE DRAWN ME INTO THIS POINTLESS, "NO THIS IS BETTER, NO THAT'S BETTER" CONVERSATION!! :lol:

River City is damn fantastic.  Especially the Dragon Bros. bit with the Double Dragon music and everything.  But the friendly fire is ridiculous in that game.  It might be one of the only games where the second player is more pertinent (it's his girl that's taken hostage).  Crash n' the Boys was good, too...weird that I felt closer to the older games than the neweer ones.  And V, don't feel bad, you gotta taste some of the bad to enjoy the good!
