If I was here earlier, I totally would have voted for you!



 

God of War 3 won! Nice. Definitely one of the best hack n slash AND overall games of all time.

Btw, shouldn't Yakuza count as Hack and Slash?

Jean Reno, dude. Jean Reno.

Onimusha 3 is a fantastic game, no two ways about it. would have given it 3rd place overall just behind Ninja Gaiden 2.

But because i wanted to go with one game from each franchise, Onimusha 2 edged out 3 due to having 5 playable characters....... and it also had Gogandantes "The Greatest Swordsman of all Demons" :)

I'll personally always have a special place in my heart for Dawn of Dreams. Fuck the haters, Soki was cooler than the other side of the pillow.

Also, of any GOW game, you lot choose 2? Damn that makes no sense.


You mean by far the best game in the series? Seriously, like 40% of the boss battles in the God of War series were in part 2 (along with the best puzzles and platforming sequences).

Heavenly sword needs to be higher. 15? Pah. Also, DMC reboot may not be great on puzzles and the story is lacking in emotion and its kinda corny and straight forward but the level design is the best I've ever seen in any h&S game bar none and it does exactly what it says on the tin.

DMC does have some good levels but best in the genre? I wouldn't say that, God of War games in general have better level designs but its still better than Platinum Games levels I will give you that :P

They chose 3 though and 2 is really amazing. I can't understand why people chose the first God of War over any of the spinoff games that were all better and Devil May Cry over Devil May Cry 3.

Not that people chose God of War 2 but you are wrong, God of War 2 has 14 boss battles in a series with 40 boss battles. I think the puzzles were far better in 3, and while its a close second best game in the series God of War 3 is better and Ghost of Sparta comes close.

35% is still more than its fair share for a series with 6 games. Also, what puzzles in God of War III? I don't recall anything beyond the single perspective puzzle in Hera's Garden (which I must admit was awesome). I was honestly a bit disappointed by God of War III because of the lack of weapon variety, platforming, puzzles, boss battles and relatively short length. To each their own I suppose.

Did we play the same game? God of War 3 had the best secondary weapons in the series, the best boss battles in the series, best puzzles and was as long as the original, though God of War 2 remains the best in terms of platforming, length and story.

The series has very variable number of boss fights, the original and Chains of Olympus only have three while God of War 2 and 3 have fourteen and nine boss battles. That makes the 35% statistic pretty useless, and some of the boss battles in 2 like the one with the Cerberus isn't really a boss battle.

I also remember Daedalus room, the place where you have to burn down Perithious, the Labyrinth and some others that I liked more than any God of War 2 puzzles.

How could I forget about those puzzles? I concede that point 100%. I wouldn't really give GoW II the best story, in fact, I thought it was one of the worst in the series (after III and Ascension) but that's not a big deal in a video game. That being said, how did you enjoy having three similar chain weapons and a repackaged Gauntlet of Zeus? Literally every person I have ever discussed GoW III with derided that aspect of the game. I admit that some of the bosses in GoW II were just mini-bosses but I can say the same about GoW III.
