I'm just curious as to what the favorite single player games are, my choice is fallout 3. I put some obvious ones in the poll, but if theres one i mentioned click other and post it here.

what poll?

hell i dunno, i'm gonna say gears and gears 2, only because i don't play the games multiplayer features. I just love the story. I guess though Fallout 3 is quite enjoyable.

Hard to make a choice with that list, but Fallout III for me.

I voted Oblivion.
I LOVED Fallout 3 and played for over 100 hours when it came out + bought all the DLC and thought that Oblivion wouldn't be that good, but I was wrong. Oblivion, even before I downloaded Knight of the Nine and Shivering Isles, is wayyy better :P
Imo, Oblivion has more character choices you can make than Fallout 3.

Out of all of those games I would say Bioshock.

That's because Fallout 3's RPG depth is nothing compared to Oblivion.

BTW, Bionic Commando has MP too, why did you add that to the list ?(I said this because I tought you're going for SP only games.)

Hell man, i don't have Bionic Commando, really that's just a filler, because it's going up against: fallout, fable, mass effect, oblivion...

For me it's Mass Effect, I absolutely loved that game, though I must admit I've only played 3 games from that list;Assassin's Creed,Oblivion and Mass Effect.

Oblivion. It was the second 360 game I got and just blew me away because it was so damn awesome. You exit the sewers and are given freedom to go anywhere. It's just brilliant. Such a great game. Fallout 3 would be a close second but Oblivion takes it for me.

Alice in Wonderland
08-24-2009, 02:59 AM
I think the story and the undersea athmosphere of Bioshock makes it one of the best single player games i've played. It's original and captivating so my choice goes for this game !

08-24-2009, 03:51 AM
Fallout 3 all the way, the pure amount of enjoyment you can get from a slow-mo scene of a guys head bursting into a million pieces never gets old. Next is Oblivion, then Mass Effect. Oblivion is a lot bigger than Fallout 3, but it also is just a copy paste formula across the entire map. Fallout 3 fits a bunch of different areas in a tinier map, which is better if you ask me.

Poida
08-24-2009, 05:27 AM
Fable 2 IMO is one of the best.

RadiantViper
08-24-2009, 05:34 AM
I voted Fallout 3, amazing game. I like Oblivion but I don't get why a lot of people absoulutely love it. I respect peoples opinions but I just loved the stories, map, gameplay, pretty much everything in Fallout 3 better. But Oblivion is good fun too.

Also, Mass Effect and Bioshock are (of course) great too. I bought them at the same time I played the hell out of them, great single player experiences. First 2 1000s too.

Bioshock was pretty good for me,
I have Fallout 3 at home which I haven't played as yet, but it sounds promising...

Fallout just beats Oblivion n my opinion, but both are the most fun I've had in a SP game in many years.

Bioshock hands down for me personally but followed by Oblivion 360 wise.

Tussell
08-24-2009, 09:44 AM
Out of the ones on the list, I'd say Fable II. Unfortunately, my favorite is not on the list, so I voted other. My favorite is Condemned: Criminal Origins.

If no gears 2 campaign then ill have to go with either bioshock or fallout 3

If you count everything in fallout 3 it is the better of the two, but it just on main storyline bioshock is better

I basically had to flip a coin which one I would choose, because both Deadspace and Oblivion were awesome.. but to be fair..I haven't played Fallout 3 (yet, I ordered it a few days ago) or Bioshock yet.

My vote goes to Deadspace, I'm guessing it's a bit of an underdog, because it's not as well known as many other games in your poll.

If you like Oblivion, you'll like Fallout 3. Check out the Fallout 3 forums, listen to some of the random stuff that happens on the games. Also, it is extremely addictive and is a 360 must buy.

Yeah, I've skimmed through those forums already, which is why I ended up ordering the game. I suppose it will keep me busy for a while :)

I think mass effect and fallout 3 are pretty close for being the best. Oblivion was fun, but was incredibly easy. But if you're willing to buy a very expensive DLC for it, you'll get 20 more hours of gameplay. Same can be said about FO3 though.

Oblivion was too easy in many aspects of the game. But the monsters do level along with you, so that made it different.

Dang, I couln't choose between FO3, Oblivion, Fable 2 and Assassin's Creed.

Went with Fallout in the end. :)

Fable 2 kind of sucked in my opinion. It didn't really live up to the first one. I mean, it had better graphics and was more interactive, but other than that, it had no real challenges. A game with no bosses :(. I still bought knothole and had 1100 right when it came out though =\.

It has to be Bioshock, but if you want a longer game then definately either Fallout 3 or Oblivion.
All 3 of these games are great.

Gears 1 and 2, have good stories but, i've done exclusively single player games... i think?
Good thing that I wasn't drinking/eating anything when I read this.

Anyway my vote goes to Bioshock. Great atmosphere, story, and world fitted with good gameplay.

No that's not it, he meant that he thinks every game in the list has no multiplayer.

I think the guy that was on about spitting stuff out was saying that the story for Gears 1 & 2 is bad.

I know gears of war 1 and 2 have multiplayer, if you can read you'll see that the 'i think' statement is about me doing exclusively single player games. i already have found out that bionic commando does include multiplayer, i didn't know so i did put 'i think'.

I say Oblivion because on my original GT I played something like 500 hours and that's why I haven't started it with the new GT because I know I'll just lose days at a time to the game. I figure I should finish some of the many other games I have first.

Best RPG on the 360! Until FF comes. Maybe after as well. It could really suck :(.

NightUlf
08-25-2009, 09:42 AM

If you like a game with plenty of atmosphere, a FPS, and a good story, then you should definately get this now. :p

Hmm.
I completed Fallout 3 in a weekend, it's okay, not my fave game but pretty fun. Oblivion sucked IMO. Assassins Creed also sucked, too repetitive. Not played DMC4 or Bionic Commando. Loved Fable II, Dead Space and Bioshock. And I hated Mass Effect.

I'd pretty torn between Bioshock, Dead Space, and Fable II. So I won't vote in the poll because I can't decide, but there are my 3 faves. :)
They are all very different games though.

Bioshock a very different kind of Shooter, and I guess a bit of a horror. It's so unique, jumpy in places, and the setting and graphics are wonderful.

Dead Space is a fabulous survival horror with great graphics and amazing sound effects, although it gets repetitive.

Fable II was quite bright, very amusing, and the achievements were easy and entertaining. :)

Not one of the choices, but GTA IV.

But out of the choices I would says Assassin's Creed.Ya.

08-27-2009, 09:17 AM
Assassins Creed may have been repetitive but it was fun for me.

Bioshock Haven't finished it yet but like the game play and story.

Fable 2 Was also great.

Fallout 3 I just started the game but it's good so far.

Mass Effect This was just amazing, everything about it was great.

Oblivion Just started this game and so far I'm stuck in the beginning but it's ok.

So my vote is Assassins Creed because I can climb, assassinate random people and the hidden blade was pretty cool. And the story was cool too.

My favourite used to be Bioshock. But since two days ago it's Batman: Arkham Asylum. Rapture and Arkham are very similar and have the same spooky feeling to them. But I just like Batman a tiny bit better. Probably because of all the cool gadgets and upgrades you can get. Pus Batman has much more replay value to it, for me anyway.

So if a game has two instances of choosing between right and left, which are allmost identical (On right you have to fight more guys, but on left you have to fight a turret.), the game is the best evah yo?
If so check Far Cry 2. Every fight can be aproached in multitude of ways.

Oblivion, though Fallout 3 and Bioshock and propably on par with it. Bionic Commando seems a little out of place in that list.

Oh and I'm absolutely loving going through the new Batman game.

Evo Kazz
08-29-2009, 08:10 AM
Batman needs to be added there, it has shocked a lot of people.

1) The people who thought it would be good, bought it, and was blown away by its awesomeness.

2) The parents who bought it for their kids thinking it was another kids comic game, when its pretty damn mature and creepy.

08-29-2009, 09:35 AM
Fallout 3 is probably the best. Then Assassin's Creed, then Mass Effect.

08-29-2009, 02:33 PM
To be honest, I thought Oblivion had the best single player out of all those games. IMO, there was more to do in it than there was in Fallout 3. Fable II was too linear, but it was a fun game.
