Hello friends,

In this thread we talk about what are our top 3 video game franchise ever or our fav video game franchises we consider top 3 in the list. and heres mine

Half life: Even though this series donot exist anymore but the impact of this franchise will always remain. as both Half life 1 and 2 are among the greatest FPS games ever created.

Doom: Each and every Doom game has been no less than masterpiece of its time. early Doom1 and 2 were best thing ever of early 90s. Doom 3 was one of the best 6th gen FPS game. and Doom is easily the best FPS of today. Eternal is coming out and it will be no less than masterpiece.

Deus Ex: Despite this franchise has terrible Deus Ex IW and barely ok mankind divided. the original Deus Ex will always remain the single greatest game ever made. it was just that ahead of its time while Human Revolution was one of the best last gen game.

so my friends, what are your top 3 franchise that you consider best or fav?

Struggling with this. I'd be inclined to say:

  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Kingdom Hearts
  • Final Fantasy

But that'd be missing at least Persona, Halo, Uncharted, Pokemon, and a few other franchises; and depending on my mood I may be more inclined to put another franchise on instead of one of those on the list now.

Really hard to pick only three :

Sonic (the old 2D games 1-3, Knuckles, Sonic CD)

Resident Evil

Dead Rising

Fallout

Whoops! That was four!

Enjoyed the most and provided the most value be it through replay, MP or modding.

  • Street Fighter
  • Halflife
  • Total War

Resident Evil missed by a cats whisker. :/

Demon/Dark/Bloodborne

Metroid/Zelda/Mario (can't pick just one, these games are all on level playing ground imo)

Maybe Devil May Cry series as a third selection. I haven't played 5, but I loved 1-4

Tales of- My number one franchise of all time. Tales of Xillia is my favourite game as of right now.

Yakuza- It has some of the best stories in gaming. I started with the franchise due to my love to J- Drama.

Kingdom Hearts- The most important franchise I've played. KH2 was the game that brought me to really like gaming.

Other notable franchises include: Senran Kagura, Dead or Alive, Sengoku Basara, Tomb Raider, Uncharted.

Now I would say

1. Yakuza

2. God of War

3. Castlevania

MGS and DMC used to be in the list, but I hated DmC and DMC4, maybe 5 will redeem the series for me. MGS5 I didn't enjoy either

1. Devil May Cry

2. Metal Gear Solid

3. Resident Evil

Honorable mentions: God of War, Hitman, Uncharted, GTA, Soulsborne games, Team ICO games, Silent Hill, Mass Effect, Ninja Gaiden. Would also put Bayonetta in there but I only played the 1st one so I dont think that counts as a franchise I'm deep involved in

@Star67: Good choice. Agreed I absolutely loved the MGS series, but thought MSV was terrible.
