All right, here it is. The greatest game series ever made, in one poll.

Now, you must decide between the best series ever made. It is the moment of truth! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Getting a little carried away, but now, here it is!

I've had to edit this numerous times. They were votes before. Here is a helpful table:

LEGEND OF ZELDA- 12
OTHER-8
GRAND THEFT AUTO- 4
FINAL FANTASY- 3
METAL GEAR SOLID- 3

Yet another edit. Got rid of all other options except the original four (GTA,LOZ,FF,MGS) and other.

Uh... I plead the 5th? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
They're all fantastic, Zelda is the best out of the three...
But is it really the BEST series? Ever? On any platform?
It's debatable.

I vote Zelda as best series in the poll.

...and quite possibly, indeed, the best series, ever.

And I ain't just talkin' games.

How does a game starring a little guy in green tights that is just starting to learn about women (and not even sure what to do with one) and is already ready to risk life and limb just to save her pointed earred a$$, not make it the greatest game of all time?

MGS is okay. I mean, I had fun playing it, but... meh. Wasn't way up there. I definitely liked every Zelda game I ever played though.

And I've never ever played Final Fantasy Anything, so... yeah. Zelda won this poll easy for me.

how can you say that those are the best series ever of all time?

rubbish

what about Resident Evil, Mario, Sonic, Silent Hill, Grand Theft Auto, Gran Turismo, Fifa, Pro Evolution, Half-Life, Deus Ex, Max Payne, Need For Speed, Burnout, Quake, Devil May Cry, Tekken, Street Figher, Mortal Kombat, Fallout, Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, Hitman, Doom, Soulcalibur, Timesplitters, Unreal

and most importantly what about Splinter Cell? you're on a frickin Splinter Cell forum and you DON'T put it up as one of the greatest series of all time?

Because Splinter Cell ISN'T one of the greatest series of all time. Not right now. It's a great series, but it can't stack up against Zelda or Final Fantasty.

Yeah, I'm gonna call Rainbow Six one of the greatest series of all times, after the ****ed up Lockdown so nicely. Ghost Recon is out because Ghost Recon 2 made me want to strangle myself.

Hitman and Doom are close, but aren't there yet.

I'm not gonna say why I didn't name every series you had one there. One reason, I COULD NEVER FIT ALL OF THOSE INTO ONE POLL.

Just vote with the ones available.

MGS3 is brilliant, better than MGS2 in terms of gameplay and things you can do (slitting throats, holding people hostage, breaking necks)

i do find it strange though that out of all three MGS games, you only actually play as Solid Snake in one of them (unless you count the pre-game part in MGS2 on the boat)

cant wait for MGS4, it's gonna ROCK!

For me, its between GTA, Super Mario Bros., and Splinter Cell. those games get better with each sequel and are always fun. so i cant really choose, but these games here are tied. all the others are not really that appealing to me. zelda is ok though.

great, we got a Nintendo fanboy here, no wonder we had Zelda up there

dude, you gotta realise that it's people's opinions on what they think is great

unfortunately, in your case youa re wrong in sayin tha Zelda is one of the all time greatest series of all time

its a great series, yes, but not in the top three

you put Halo in there, but not Half-Life or Doom

i'm a huge Halo fan (ask the oldies) but i would never say it's one of the best gaming series of all time, not by a long way

well the poll results suggest that MGS is the best game with two votes

which is weird, cos i voted GTA out of all of it and it aint counted my vote

no need to get your knickers in a twist, sam_fisher091, i was merely sayin that you cant put up three game types (cos thats what you did the FIRST time round before you edited it like fifty times) and say "here are the best three gaming series, which do you think is the best?"

if Splinter Cell was in there i'd have voted for that
