View Full Version : The EGM top 30 of fall

24th Aug 2003, 21:36
The Electronic Gaming Monthly top 30 games of fall just came out. And Defiance was right there @ #30. With a couple new pics.

Coming in at #3 was Castlevania. And #1 was Socom II. This game is obviously going to rock and people are finally starting to see it.

It sounds like it is definately coming out in November though.

only 30?

erm... what is socom 2? I don't even know what socom is.....

Have you ever heard of SOCOM navy seals? The coolest online game ever? The sequel to it coming out this fall is supposed to be pretty wild.

Hey there's an idea. Have Defiance go online :p

You never know, it could work.

I hate online games.

I hate online PS2 games.

However, I love playing online PC games with my friends :-)

Still, how is Castlevania that high on the list, and Defiance the last one? If anything, you'd think that the two games would be closer together. (they both look really similar). I guess there's more Castlevania fans.

I have never played online.

I have no intention to.

I'm up against ME, and nobody else.

And, can you imagine a bunch of little Raziels and Kains running around, hacking each other up? Pshaw! :mad: :p

I'm up against ME, and nobody else.

Online play isn't always competitive. There some games I enjoy playing cooperatively, especially if I can arrange it with people I know.

To back to the topic, I'm not surprised Defiance is so far down on EGM's list. Most of their reviews for LoK games were hardly flattering. The only one that got a good reivew from them was BO2 - ironically, the least favorite of most members of this forum.

Oh well. At least Defiance made the list. :cool:

I hate cooperative play too! =P.

I'm anti online gaming simply because I'm a student and can only afford a 56K connection.

Socom online? Nah. Didn't know that. Doesn't sound like my thing anyway.

All worthy. The actual ordinal numbering will be determined by sales. I think Thief3 should be on the list.

25th Aug 2003, 14:49
30! It should be #1!!!!!

PS- I don't care for online play either. I prefer solitary gaming. That way, I'm not embarrassed when I get killed for the thousandth time. ( I usually have to cheat to get through timed events in gameplay anyway :( )

25th Aug 2003, 18:31
Wow, I am totally *not* looking forward to most of the games on that list. Whatever, though. At least they included Defiance.

I wouldn't go that far. It was alright but i found it got boring fast, and the voice communication was horrible! I have played many other online games I prefer. But everyone likes something else so please don't take this as a personal attack lol (I hate when people argue about which is better cause you never get anywhere).

How could they possibly put Super Mario Bros. 3 on top of Defiance?! It's just a port of a game that's like, almost 20 years old. EGM should die in a pile of stinking muck.

Hm. I myself find only four games which could be infront of LOK-D (actually not even that, LOK-D should be on the first place ;)). I can't possibly imagine how they managed to place those left-over 25 pieces of rubbish infront of LOK-D...

There are only several games on that list that I want.

1 - Defiance (naturally)
2 - Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (this game looks a lot like Defiance in so many ways it's not even funny. Err...actually it looks a lot like Devil May Cry, but you know what I mean)
3 - Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (this game looks incredibly fun if you've seen the footage)
4 - Beyond Good and Evil (this game looks like a movie, and a really cool original concept)

There are other games I'm looking forward to, but they aren't on that list. I'm actually pretty surprised that Defiance is at the bottom. I would have at least imagined it to be around number 12 or so.... Well, I guess I'm glad it made the list =)
