Welcome back to The Rating Game.

The success of a console is most defined by the games that are released on that console during it's lifespan. 

Some consoles depend on massive 3rd party titles to carry it through the years, others rely on their in house 1st party titles to shine brightest on their  hardware.

There are many things that can happen in a consoles life that can or will make it a success, but one of the most important windows of a consoles lifespan, is it's Launch.

The launch of a new console is key to building that early buzz, that buzz  that may attract the not so hardcore gamer's, and is also a great window to pull in your hardcore gamer that is egarly awaiting that brand spanking new gaming machine. But one thing is for sure, you better bring the Launch games.

Launch games are almost always a mixed bag. Few gems, lots of ports and a few titles that make you scratch your head ans ask, wait, this does not look  NEXT GEN ? 

We have seen many great launch games in our gaming history. Some that we even still play to this date. Games like SSX on the PS2, F-Zero released on the SNES, Super Mario World released on the SNES and even Geometry which was released on the XBox360.

So today we will be asking the question, what is the BEST Launch Game of All Time ?

And the nominees are, 

HALO: Combat Evolved - XBOX 2001

 

Soul Calibur - Sega Dreamcast 1999

 

Super Mario 64 - N64 1996

 

All 3of these games are nothing short of masterpieces in their own right, but there can only be 1.

2 Questions. 

(1) Which of these Launch games is the BEST LAUNCH GAME OF ALL TIME.

(2) If NASA asked YOU to place one of these 3 games into a capsule that will be launched into space and to be returned to earth in 100 years, which game would it be ?



Around the Network

I voted Halo because it is the only one games that made ​​me buy a console just for a single game.

close behind come Super Mario 64 (I still play this game often during the holiday)





Halo by far.



Predictions for global hardware sales by end of 2017: PS4 - 70M. Xbone - 33M. Switch - 7M.

Halo easily, that game single handily kept Xbox relevant imo.



SM64 imo. Its also the only one Ive played of the three:)



Around the Network

Definitely Super Mario 64.

I will vote Mario 64 cause in the days when many games were trying to transition into 3d from 2d, it was Mario 64 that perfected the transition where many, many, MANY games have failed to do but Halo is very close behind with its outstanding multiplayer and awesome campaign but its second cause hey, I sure didnt buy an xbox for it

PS: Have a feeling that Soul Calibur is just gonna die in this one lolll

That would be sad. Soul Calibur was an almost perfect port of the arcade machine and a very fine game when it was released on the Dreamcast.

Yeh. Halo was an absolute god send for the Xbox 1. 



All three games are amazing, but SM64 takes the crown for making me a very happy kid back in the day!
