i voted for mario and legend of zelda (dont care for pokemon).  Just because i have played every installment dating back to the nes days. Sure same gameplay but what franchise doesn't. They are fun games that suck the player into the colorful world.  Both give you a chance to play through the fantasy of being a hero and saving the princess/ world.

 

The other franchises i would have gone with if you asked me during the 90s/early 2000s would be resident evil and final fantasy. But since re4 and final fantasy x they have sucked. Resident evil trying to be a call of duty/gears of war clone instead of staying with what made them famous in the first place. Monsters, limited ammo, creapy music, detective gameplay (yes i like solving puzzles and using my brain), forced co op (nothing beats just you being alone no one else there) and even the fixed camera angles. Brought a feel of you was playing a horror movie. As for final fantasy, the newer stories and characters have just been boring.

 

Not a first person/cover and military shooter fan so will never vote for them.

System Shock 1 and 2 are still two of the best action RPG's ever made. They literately changed the face of western rpg's and action games. Then you have the spiritual successor of Bioshock as well. 

 

System shock 2 might be one of the greatest achievements in video game history. Not nearly enough people played it and if you haven't played it before I suggest picking it up on Steam and playing it. 

 

I didn't vote for Bioshock, because the better half of the SS/Bioshock is system shock 1 & 2. 

 

I'm going off of technical merit, gameplay and how much it changed the industry with game design.

The last 5 years, Fallout/Elder Scrolls have stolen months of my life

I'd have to vote for Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy 7 is still my favorite game of all time, and FF8 and FF10 are also very solid additions to the franchise.

GTA

This.

GTA V alone made it the best franchise of all time. It is undeniably the GOAT game in my opinion.

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
