Top 10 Best Video Game Series


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Mortal Kombat

such a low place? why? this franchise is awesome and very very entertaining. The story is interesting, all the characters are superb and they kick ass - Magnolia

The Mortal Kombat games are EXCELLENT I can't'T believe it's not in the top 10. Twenty at least! It has a complex story line for each individual character. Amazing graphics (once you get to the newer releases) and and all time classic.

What?! The Assassin's Creed series on the 5th spot and Arkham series on the 20th spot? It's so wrong!

Best Fighting Series Games Ever

22 Fire Emblem

It's absolutely awesome to play and just keeps getting better and better. Tone of replay value in the newer games with difficulty settings and multiple story lines and hilarious support conversations. Not to mention fun story lines and a diverse cast! Definitely one of the best!

The characters, story, gameplay, music and everything else is great. Fatal flaw is that their expensive. Play these legally if at all possible.

How has this not gotten on the top 20 this is one of the best strategy RPG I've every played!

Best series of all time

23 Portal

Why are we not voting this?

Portal is just a very fun game to play, and it is even better, when you think of the PAINS the creators went to. Just making you walk through an upside-down portal takes a crap ton of coding. THEY DO WHAT THE MUST BECAUSE THEY CAN

Portal is one of the most innovative games of the past ten years, and, unlike Call of Duty, requires you to think. Not to mention the amazing humor.

Okay, now lets think about this for a second.
There's only two games in the series, but others have 5-6. So, unfortunately, I think #18 is a good spot for it. - mattstat716

24 Ratchet & Clank

Fantastic characters, great humor which is appealing to both children AND adults, an endless arsenal of insane weapons and gadgets, the R.Y.N. O's, brilliant storylines, what more could you ask for?

Ratchet and Clank for the win!

Ah ratchet and clank kid friendly, hilarious, Godlike music incredibly addicting weapons awesome stories. Even though some games like into the nexus is mini short I will never give up on this fantastic series.

Ratchet and Clank is a work of art, with amazing weapons, gadgets, and humor, the series rarely seizes to amaze me (by rarely I refer to All 4 One), seriously glad it just beat out Call of Duty.

It is so over the top and fun. I love ir

25 Bioshock

The Bioshock series of games is absolutely amazing, the stories are fantastic and the graphics make it worthwhile. Bioshock Infinite definitely could make this top my list.

Bioshock is constant in how well they make their story lines. Every game is a master piece.

Amazing story gameplay and graphics with a superb atmosphere

26 Battlefield

HOW IS THIS NUMBER 36?! Sure, it's not the best. But, it is the best shooter. Why? Because it requires thought, strategy, and teamwork. It's not some brain dead thing that 7 year olds play because they think they are "surer stealth snipez"

I think the biggest problem of this game series is single player campaign

Best first person shooter and it is the best.

Call of Duty is rated higher than this?!

27 Pikmin

I love all 4 (including the 3ds pikmin game) of these games. The endings were so emotional and happy at the same time. The gameplay is unique and addicting. It basically started its own genre. The characters are cute. Pikmin 2 is awesomely challenging and there is so much to do. The original game, for its time, was amazing. The story is cool. The characters can be hilarious. I loved the pleasant music. The list goes on. Pikmin deserves more popularity. I think that its way better than games like Halo or Mario. The Legend of Zelda series is, on a scale of one to ten, a 7 7/8 out of 10. I am never bored of Pikmin, and I never will get bored of it. 10 out of 10!

The 2 pikmin is 1 of the best games I have ever play and the first is also right up there

Pikmin has depth, character, hidden things that you can find, cute pikmin, what more could you ask for?!

Pikmin is an absolute hidden gem. It has so much charakter, should be much higher than 50.

28 Pac-man
29 Half Life

Proved that games could have a great story without sacrificing game play. Revolutionized the fps genre, as well as gaming as a whole. And it's sequel, while not having quite the same impact as the first, improved upon upon it's successor in a number of ways, including graphics, storytelling, setting, and most dramatically, physics. As far as impact on the gaming industry goes, nothing compares to the Half-Life series, and that's why it's my favorite game series of all time, and I don't think there will be another game series ever that can surpass it's place in video game history.

Are you serious? Call of Duty and Halo beat Half-Life by a large margin? This series is the most innovative of them all. Without this game, there wouldn't be a Call of Duty or Halo. Don't hesitate and play this game right now.

One of the most amazing game series I have ever played, it by far surpasses the story line of games in this generation and even if the quality of not so impressive this definitely be one the best games in history.

One of my favorite games :P

31 Saints Row

How is this at 38. Its not the best but deserves to be in the top 25

Should be in top 5

Best game ever


32 Crash Bandicoot

The original and better play station mascot

I have almost every game in the series these games are awesome And number 1 in my opinion.

The best game in life, you must vote for it

Currently a official Nintendo character. Mr. Bandicoot and his sister move from PlayStation to Nintendo GameCube. - playstationfan66

33 Gears of War

No way this game is #20, but look what it is competing with

Gears deserves top 10 assasin's creed needs to be knocked down a few notches.

Why Is This Game So Low. I Mean 61. Come On People. Gears Is Probalby Better Than Every Game Here Except Halo And Call of Duty. You People Need Help. Now. I Am Making My Own List. This Is Just Sad! - S7ARVAD3R

34 Madden Football

Of all the madden games there was only 2 good ones and that's it. - htoutlaws2012

Best selling game of 2013 is Grand Theft Auto 5 not madden - ikerevievs

What are you guys thinking?!? Madden is the #1 selling game in 2013

35 Borderlands

Borderlands has a way of offering hundreds of hours of fun in one game. The makers if this game keep it fun and light hearted while still bringing it down on a serious note. A well made game!

I always find myself returning to these games, even after finishing them over and over again. Great series.

This game is jolly good mate. Muh favorite series.

Super fun a lots of replayability

36 Sly Cooper

Sly Cooper HAS to be higher on the list. Who could forget daunting tasks, rewarding loot and promising characters? The Sly series touched the hearts of lots of gamers out there and I know I'm not the only one out there who agrees that this should be higher on the list.

I believe that Sly has worked his way into gamers hearts. Anyone who has followed the game remembers the rewarding loot, the fun stealth missions, and even for a children game, it has a great story line.

While Sly Cooper may not be on the same level as Zelda, it sure is better than Call of Duty.

Thank you it's 29, I liked this series when I was small

37 Civilization

When Civilization is 46th on the list, you know something is really wrong with this top 10 stuff.

38 Hitman

It did what assassins creed tried and failed to copy, player choice! So many different ways you can approach each mission and so much fun to keep playing.

An underrated game everyone should play

The best series of all time

Not Better Than AC.

39 Gran Turismo

Gran Turismo is an excellent racing game with extremely detailed tracks, both real and fictional. The car selection is gigantic but it could use more Premium cars. Not the best overall series, but the best racing series.

Polyphony Digital are so dedicated with their games - jefet21

I have to say after playing this series, I easily passed the licence exam 6 yrs ago, no joke.
