The Best Playstation Game Ever: The Grand Final!

Ladies and gents, welcome to the Best Playstation Game tournament. It's a Sunday, there is no football on the tele and the sun is out... So, with boredom firmly set in, I figured why not. Lets see what people think the best game available on Playstation is.

 

Before you get voting though, just a few things. There are a lot of good games I've left off this bracket or I just plain forgotten about them. After finishing all the graphics, I realised that maybe Heavy Rain deserved a spot. That said though, I think the ones listed are worthy. I even looked at the forums to decide a few based on the activity. When it came to arranging the match-ups, I tried to keep it as fair as possible. Split up the big hitters. Obviously that's all based on my own opinion though so I get you might see it differently.

 

I wanted to keep it a relatively short tournament so instead of listing the direct sequel games like MGS1, MGS3, MGS4 etc... I've lumped them together. Whether you preferred Uncharted 1 or 2, they are the same vote.

 

Now the voting... This google docs poll is the nicest I could find that has all the votes on the same page. The downside is that you can vote as many times as you want. It's just a bit of fun and stacking votes only results in everybody losing. :D 

 

As for the actual voting, I'm gonna keep the votes hidden and then post the Round 1 results in a few days.

 

Here's the link:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1WCGR_5U4pf_p_fZfZUXr3vytxwMwOxDlp4V_WNkhUiQ/viewform#start=publisha...

 

Happy voting

Voted. May I ask why games such as God of War and MGS are combined but others like GTA and FF have seperate votes for each title?

GTA and FF aren't direct sequels. I took them as stand-alone games but games like Uncharted and MGS are linked to the previous game through the story and characters.

 

I also thought that combining FF and GTA to be one vote each might have been a bit too powerful. FF is currently doing a beta for it's 14th game (Not including the connected sequels). As for GTA, although it's so-called 5th game is about to released, there have been way more than that with all the spin offs.

 

I get why you asked though, and that's the reason I've kept them in the same bracket. Not all of them can make it to the semi final.

Think I'll give it another day for people to get their votes in and then I will post the results.

So far there are two games that are running away with it, one game with a comfortable lead and the rest are only 2 or 3 votes apart. There's even a matchup that's dead even. :D

I do believe this was the reason for the title selections ^

Fair enough. Still makes absolutely no sense though despite the reasoning as their inclusion meant that actual PS3 classics such as Killzone (Seriously, it's a Playstation Game Poll), Tekken, Suikoden, Wipeout (Really, Really!), and Crash Bandicoot didn't get nominated but multi platform games which have better versions on other platforms, did.

I said in the OP that there are games I have left off the list or just forgotten about. Listing every possible game that could be nominated would take ages.. It's nothing official, Sony haven't given me the go-ahead to do this... It's just a bit of fun for anybody who wants to take part.

 

We're nearing the close of the semi-final and I already disagree with the eventual winner. It's not so much that I disagree, it's just the best two PS games, for me, got knocked out in round 1. We'll never know which is truly the best game ever. It's impossible to do because it's all about personal preference. One mans trash is another mans treasure... How long is a piece of string??? lol

 

This isn't the end all, be all of games, it's just PS gamers voting on which they think is the best game using a head-2-head style tournament. it's just a bit of forum fun.

 

-------------

 

I'll close the voting and post the results a bit later on.

How can you forget Tekken or Killzone or Wipeout. They are three games that essentially made the platform. While I appreciate it is just a piece of fun, it's like having a best of Nintendo and forgetting to list Mario and Zelda.

Each to their own and all but I don't think Tekken and Killzone are to the PS1 as what Mario and Zelda are to Nintendo.

 

Check  out this thread : http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Celebrate-PlayStation/PlayStation-Museum/td-p/19222482

 

Tekken does make an appearance in Sweden but Final Fantasy VII and MGS seem to be the popular choices. Neither of them even made it past the 1st round in this tournament.
