    Top Five Greatest Games of the Fifth Generation

    This was inspired by a discussion that I had with Willo in an earlier thread about the PlayStation 1, and it's also meant as a compliment to the Seventh Generation thread that I made in another section. They need to be rated in "Top Five" order as, eventually, I would like to make a thread pitting the averages.

    1. Final Fantasy VII
    2. Spider-Man
    3. Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
    4. Spyro
    5. Rayman



    Question: What are your top-five favorite video-games of the fifth generation, these being the 3DO Company, Atari Jaguar, Nintendo 64, Sega Saturn, and PlayStation?

    Well having only really played and owned the N64 of that generation, all my picks would have to come from there. Tough to pick however, and likely forgetting many, but off the top of my head

    Super Mario 64
    Mario Kart 64
    GoldenEye
    Ocarina of Time
    Banjo Kazooie

    Could also give honorable mentions to: Jet Force Gemini, Smash Bros, Starfox 64 and Pokemon Stadium.

    1. The World Is Not Enough.
    2. GoldenEye
    3. Banjo Kazooie
    4. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    5. Gitaroo Man

    It is quite interesting to me that The World is Not Enough wasn't a bigger game, when you think about how FPS sequels like Call of Duty, BioShock and Battlefield have excited audiences this generation.

    I would say that Banjo Kazooie is the apex of the adventure/puzzle/platform genre, and there will likely never be a better 'rhythm' game than Gitaroo Man.

    Which version of The World is Not Enough did you play Val?

    From memory, the Playstation version received rather a lot of negative reviews compared to the Nintendo 64 version, though having only owned the latter, can't say why that was.

    I also had Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for the PlayStation. I don't think that it was anything great, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and not only that, but it was a large part of my childhood. I can still remember going down Diagon Alley (A play on words that is still funny) and collected all the different flavored beans.

    I never really was able to get all of the entertainment out of the James Bond games that was available, whenever I was younger, I would play Golden Eye with my older brothers, but it wasn't my Nintendo 64, and therefore, I didn't really get to pursue everything that the game itself had to offer. All that I had was Tomorrow Never Dies for the PlayStation 1 which was absolutely terrible.
