the Splinter Cell "saga", the Super Mario "saga", and the Tekken "saga".

Apparently you just don't understand how brilliant adaptations of Tom Clancy works in video game form, the constant interplay between the Mario, his angst ridden brother Luigi, their maiden Princess, and and the evil tyrant, Bowser (and sometimes his children), and, ummm...a fighting tournament like Tekken...constitute Milton like sagas.

The Iliad and the Odyssey? WTF, plz. Odysseus and Agamemnon don't have [censored] on the character depth Namco developed in Yoshimitsu and Paul Phoenix. Tekken "saga" ftw

I wish Mario had enough characters to make a Godfather parody.

Luigi = fredo imo.

Quake II is #98?? THIS IS A TRAVISHAMOCKERY!!

I suppose it wouldn't be as high as Quake simply given that it wasn't the first Quake, even though its engine, single-player campaign, and multiplayer were all vastly better than Quake I and vastly better than any other game at the time. Half-Life (built on the Q2 engine) didn't come around for another year.

Plus, Quake II was probably the last disc you could put into a CD player and [censored] rock out to. Awesome soundtrack.

Mafia is a pretty solid choice at #85, forgot how much fun that game was.

[/ QUOTE ]

Quake was truly ground-breaking, whereas Quake II was just more of the same with accelerated graphics and polished multi-player - to be honest I'm a little surprised that Quake II made the list at all.

Also, Half-Life was based on a heavily modified version of the original Quake engine; GoldSrc.

LOL at "Sam and Max hit the road" over Final Fantasy 7 and Goldeneye. I've never even heard of that game, let alone heard of it being good enough to be ranked higher than what are argued by some as the best RPG and best FPS of all time.
