This list is about the internet, unlike the last list. It rates the fun factor and their reputation for online gaming. This video will be presented in wide screen!
10. Mario Kart Wii. Plenty of Wii games have online these days. Mario Kart Wii is the best of the bunch. Smash Bros Brawl is way too laggy. Despite not having the full functionality of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, it still managed to do pretty much everything else right.
Leaderboards, downloadable ghosts, bringing a friend online with you, racing and battling online, 12 players simulataneously playing.
"Camping - legitimate strategy".
Nintendo may have dominated the last list, but their best just barely makes the online cut. That's just sad. Quit sucking Nintendo.
9. Street Fighter IV. No online fighting game has been able to pull off a great online fighting experience. That is, until Street Fighter 4 finally got it right. It had minimized lag, a rating system, and only got better when Super Street Fighter 4 added online tournaments, team battles, 8 player lobbies, and save and replay matches. Craig can finally play that kid in Malaysia -and get called "gay" a lot.
8. Phantasy Star Online. This game for the Dreamcast is still online as we speak - but ScrewAttack is not among them. This RPG plays on a network so old, that no one would check their email at that speed, let alone play an MMO. The Dreamcast was way ahead of its time.
7. Killzone 2. The controls take some getting used to, but Killzone 2 is one of the best FPS's. Nick has to apolgize for playing so badly.
6. Gears of War. Chainsaws online! Nick describes hiding around the corner, before attacking with a chainsaw.
5. Grand Theft Auto IV. Nick loves sandbox games. Nick is sold with being able to play with 16 people online, with the same experience as the single player. 17 million copies of the game have been sold so far.
4. Uncharted 2. Third person shooters have been bought to a whole new level. Super smooth controls, and wicked level design. The first year of Uncharted 2, a collective 10,500 years were spent playing online!
3. LittleBigPlanet. Another PS3 exclusive allowed player's minds go wild. The number of levels is approaching infinity. You can even bring your friends to play with you. Even Reggie was impressed.
2. Call of Duty 4. Murdering your friends online is fun. Call of Duty reinvented the first person shooter. From the control scheme to the leveling up system, the influence of CoD is everywhere. The only downside is the spammers.
Craig and Nick do a recap.
1. Halo Freaking 2. Halo was why a lot of people bought an Xbox, but Halo 2 is why people spent money to play online each month. Every Halo game since have used levels from Halo 2.
Live support for the original Xbox was pulled in April 2010. The final game didn't end until nearly a month later. That is how much Halo meant to people. Halo 3 was better, but Halo 2 meant a lot more to gaming.
