The Top 100 Games in the Last 12 Months
« on: April 17, 2008, 01:43:02 am »
Next-Gen compiled a list of the top 100 games in the last 12 months I cut and pasted the entire list for you. A couple things to keep in mind, some of these games have been out longer then others, these numbers are from the U.S. and Europe only, the numbers are of games sold between March 1st 2007 - March 1st 2008, and if you see a multi platform game like: 94. Bee Movie Game - DS/Wii/PS2/X360/PC - 530K The systems listed after the title, are in order of which systems sold the most copies of that game. They also busted out the maths and graphs of these numbers here, in case you're into that sort of thing. Anyway here they are:

Its by sales, not popular vote or critical reception.
That should be obvious by the fact that lame cookie-cutter sports games with terminal sequelitis scored higher than the likes of Metroid Prime.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

And Halo 3 being on the second place, while it was 'just an ok game'. I mean, I've played all three of them and I especially loved the first one, without playing the first one, I would've thought of the sequals 'What the hell is this, it's just like every fps, nothing special'

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

*Growls* No matter how true that statement may be! Halo 3 is more than 'just an ok game', if Halo 3 were a woman I would make sweet love to it. 
Kings 2:23-24 --- The Holy Bible
23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youth.

Owned in so many ways.  :D

Seriosuly though, you think some games woulda sold better. Like Orange Box.
The best person ever.  She should have won the Peace Prize.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

If Halo 3 were a drainpipe I'd still make love to it.

No, the Orange Box shouldn't have sold more. It didn't have as much hype or marketing. And it had a crappy cover.

It's obvious that Call of Duty 4 sold more, that's because it's counting how many games it's sold on all systems. Whereas Halo 3 is only on one system. And it's still number 2. Because it's brilliant.

Well Call of Duty 4 is the most played game on XBL, at least it was last month. So it makes sense that it tops Halo 3.
And the Orange Box didn't have enough hype, but it's still better than CoD4 or Halo3.
I will put a sig on as soon I have something interesting to say.
