One word (EPIC)

2 Super Smash Bros. Melee

Needs To Be Number 1. - masoncarr2244

Amazing Gameplay - VideoGamefan5

MELEE - GreatScottYoureGreatNOT

3 Halo: Combat Evolved

This game revolutionized twin-stick first person shooters, and still holds up well today. The game includes lots of go-to features present in most FPS's including limited weapon count, regenerating shields, and equally strong focus on good singleplayer and multiplayer experiences. Had it been released a little later, it would have certainly been an important pioneer in online gaming with Xbox Live.

4 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
