The last list we did was First Person Shooters so it isn’t much of a stretch that we’d choose to do Third Person Shooters this time around. Expect some Mass Effect, Star Wars Battlefront and more below!
With this installment of the GenTEN List we’re delving into the grittiness of First Person Shooters. The FPS genre started with primitive graphics with games like Doom, which were great at the time, but on the newest generation of consoles we’ve seen the First Person Shooter genre spawn some games with very beautiful graphics. We all know it’s not really about the graphics so expect to see a nostalgic trip back into the days of the Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, and some older PC games on some of the GenGAME staff’s lists.
The Legend of Zelda has a huge catalog of characters that are very likable. Some fans latch on to a particular character throughout the story and it’s easy to pick a favorite that interacts with Link in a serious, funny, or dramatic way. The main three characters of the series are Link, Zelda and Ganon which are three very likable characters amomgst fans. Since this is a GenTEN List we have to pick our ten favorite characters and since there is a wide selection to choose from, expect the GenGAME staff to pick the obvious and even the most obscure Zelda characters.
We’ve done 2D Platformers already, so assembling the staff for a 3D Platformers list seemed like a match made it heaven. Expect this GenTEN List to feature a ton of Nintendo games. We love our 3D Mario games. Check out the GenGAME Staff’s favorite 3D Platformers and as always let your opinions be heard in our comment section.
When coming up with a new GenTEN List topic the idea of doing Platformers popped up rather quickly. The downside to such a great topic was that there were just too many games to choose from. To remedy this we made the GenGAME staff go through and pick their favorite 2D Platformers. This GenTEN List will show some retro games so expect some opinions to be heavy here. If you like the writers here, come take a look at their favorite Platformers and see if you can relate! Maybe there are a few of these games you’d put on your personal top 10 list.
Some people can rattle off their favorite games without thinking. Others need some time to gather their thoughts and really delve down into what exactly is their favorite. At GenGAME we have a lot of writers that play role playing games. This GenTEN List will hopefully show the diversity of the staff. So if you like the writers here, come take a look at their favorite RPGs and see if you can relate!
Feel free to post your own top 10 in the comment section.
Wii U’s received a lot of flak for the copious number of third-party ports heading to the system at its launch: games like the almost-a-year-old Batman: Arkham City, this past spring’s Mass Effect 3, and Ninja Gaiden 3. It’s hard for a number of people to accept these games as true multi-platform Nintendo games and not just efforts to easily cash in on Wii U at launch by offering a bunch of updates to old gems.
I don’t think the problem is that they’re ports; the problem is that they’re not the correct ports to get people excited about the system. Multi-platform games practically built the last generation for HD systems. Wii U’s going to need games that go beyond appealing to the mainstream sensibilities if it’s going to stand out from the rest. Read on for a list of ten of the most drool-inducing suggestions that come to mind.
The Halo universe has an ever expanding list of weapons that change from game to game. Sometimes weapons are wiped away from the UNSC or Covenant arsenals completely then they magically re-appear into continuity in another title. Regardless of the complete disarray in the Halo weapon canon, there are undeniably a lot of cool weapons that appear in Halo games.
Today’s GenTEN list will show my top 10 favourite weapons from the Halo games. This is purely based on opinion. Whether you agree or disagree, go ahead and leave a comment below.
In a glorious new and fresh return, the GenTEN Lists are back! This time we’re going to take a look at my top ten Halo multiplayer maps from Halo: CE all the way up to Halo: Reach. There’s been a lot of maps in the Halo series so naturally there is going to be a few that are left out from this list. Sadly that’s the case with most of the GenTEN Lists but that’s just the way things go.
I am about to unveil my 10 best video games of the holiday season. These games have great single-player experiences, but many of them also have excellent multiplayer experiences too, a factor that’s becoming increasingly important in this market. Some of the factors that went into deciding which games should be chosen were replayability, overall look, difficulty, and popularity. A surprising stat about this list is the fact that half of the games are exclusive to one platform, and one of the ten is a pay-per-month game. These factors did impact the numbers some of these games received, but could not keep them off of the can’t miss list!
When coming up with a list of top 10 shooters it’s tough to include everyone’s favorites. We took every element that makes a shooter truly a shooter and even more than that. We looked at each game just as that; a game to be enjoyed and played as a whole. We pay homage to the classics that started it all and also pay respects to those who have capitalized on the core gameplay of a shooter. So for all of you shooter fans and gamers alike, feel free to check out our list.
It’s no secret that everyone loves The Legend of Zelda. GenGAME is a prime example of people that love the series. If you didn’t catch our Zelda marathon then first of all shame on you; but secondly if you did see it then you would note the passion we have for these games. This time around for the Genten LIST we did something different. It was a type of mix and match game that Myself (Kevin), Trevor, Kyle, Ed, and Aaron played to compile this list. For the entirety of what we did check out the GenGAME BSCast where we put the BS in brainstorm.
