Easily Bioshock for me and I only really love the first one. But that's how stellar I consider that game - my second favorite third party game ever made after Castlevania SOTN. I'll love it 'til the day I die.

That poll is really missing Portal (which gets my vote).

Yeah my bad; I also feel like I should've included Vanquish. But VGC polls only allow 10 options.

Dead Space
It was a new take on the RE series and boy did they conquer the genre when RE went its direction of action over horror. Great story, great visuals, great gameplay, great everything. If their was a Dead Space 4 i would pre-order instantly.

Yeah while it kinda went to shit in Dead Space 3, the original game, 2, and Extraction are excellent and I'd love to see a Dead Space 4 get the series back on track.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Assassins Creed followed closely by Borderlands.



After AC1, I would have said AC...despite all the flaws, it was very fresh and had so much potential, but since I find AC to have deteriorated quickly after the first one, I must go with Souls...while it didn't felt very fresh to me (Severance: Blade of Darkness did something similar in 2001, just with better combat), those games have brilliant level design and atmosphere and are consistently good (talking as minority who prefers DS2 over any other).



Mass Effect for me. Runner up would be Bioshock, although I skipped 2.

Chose Mass Effect, it’s scale spanning 3 games of carrying over progress was next level at the time. Bioshock a close 2nd but flawed in that it was a one-hit wonder.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

Bioshock. Can't wait to finally see what is up next for the IP. I think it was confirmed a new one is in the works.

Yep. https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/gaming/bioshock-release-date-game-2k-sequel-new-announcement-series-a9239081.html

They stress that it is still years away though. Hopefully it can live up to the stellar pedigree of its forebears.
