Ultra Scam number one, laughable!
RetroNoticias (2 months ago)
why do you guys keep on saying "metroidvania game" when refering to "any" exploration game? the term came to be when konami started making castlevania games with metroid like exploration so they called any "castlevania" game with a "metroid" like exploration a "metroidvania" . so the only metroidvania games should be castlevania games with metroid like exploration...

The games in here look really interesting! Unlike watchmojo, whatoplay calculates the playscore before making a list, not just being joined with what the mass of people wants like watchmojo does.

damn.. i can't go thru dq8 again, i have like 70 hours or so on my ps2, didnt finish it yet. It is tempting tho. Hooking up the old ps2 seems like a lot of trouble :( also, im still playing pokemon Y, this game also has a staggering amount of content, especially if you're obsessive compulsive.

Hmm, I don't really like objective Top Lists. It feels like this guy just read up all the games on Wikipedia and then gave a half-hearted explanation why they are great even though he doesn't care about them.
Nihlm not from Futurama (10 months ago)
Ever oasis deserves to be higher, same as fire emblem warriors and monster Hunter stories. You also don't put only ultra sun in a place cause it is literally the exact same game as ultra moon pretty much. You are misinformed and only focus on making money when you have no insight into the actual games and how good they really are. Critics also very often don't understand that games are not looked at the same as a movie and consider some of the most ridiculous games the best because of the graphics or complexity of a story

Im 25 years old now and still waiting for the next Advanced war game!

I never had the chance to play UMUS yet, I own both but was too busy to play it. My fav 3ds game form 2017 was FE: Echoes. I thought it was much better than Fates Birthright and Revelations, and on par with Conquest. I loved many of the other games here too! Metroid was so much fun, but quick. Monster Hunter stories I was so surprised with. I didn't think I'd like this one at all, but it was so fun. It has a pretty nice story, it's a little dark, but it has it's quirky points too it as well.
ClyRe Maximilian (10 months ago)
Story of season is the classic harvestmoon now
I'm surprised Pokemon topped this list. Given the more mixed reception it's gotten compared to Sun and Moon, I didn't think fan scores would be high enough to get it up there. Not that I'm complaining.
Maximillian Lylat (10 months ago)
ZachaRicO *Pronounced Zak-uh-REEK-oh the stars rumor killed the hype, USUM improves everything and are the definitive games and the best non-remake since black white 2 imo

emrah şimşek (10 months ago)
my favourite 3ds game this year is mario and luigi superstar saga but I just dont understand why pokemon is allways the leader its just that its not even enjoyable.
emrah şimşek (9 months ago)
its just my own opinion.
Stephanie Duvergé (9 months ago)
I find it more challenging. Previous generations made it easy by raising level you ruled, you raised stats for battles online. Now, you have to raise wise or you'll get washed out on the battle tree, not a mandatory part of the game, but you get the chance of beating red, so that makes it interesting enough.
Thunder Book (10 months ago)
The new Pokémon games this generation is really not good.. The older generations like 3,4,5,6 are still enjoyable

Speedbump from Chinatown (10 months ago)
>when the long awaited return of the metroid franchise is lower then a recycled game from last year
Aquatommovies (10 months ago)
Speedbump from Chinatown what I want you to know about is the problem with Pokémon, there are two groups of people, the fans and the critics. The fans want more of the same, they want the nostalgia they felt from red and blue to be reignited, so it's basically impossible to please them. The critics see this and say Pokémon is just recycled trash all the time, I don't think anyone is being fair to Pokémon, and the huge amount of people it has to cater to, metroid doesn't have that problem because not many people play it relatively speaking, this is why I feel that people are too harsh on Pokémon.
Speedbump from Chinatown (10 months ago)
Aquatommovies I've played sun, it was the weakest game in the franchise in my opinion. As for USUM, i haven't played, but for the most part is a recycled game (reused assets, maps, mechanics, animations etc.) so I already knew how things would play out. The new stuff is mostly just fanservice, such as rainbow rocket, and not enough improvements to it's predecessor. I prefer Metroid because it's one of my favorite franchises, and Samus Returns is the first great metroid game in an entire decade, so it's my preferred game. But everyone has their preferences, and if you like Pokemon more then Metroid, that's alright.
Aquatommovies (10 months ago)
Speedbump from Chinatown I'm willing to bet money that you, nor anyone criticising Pokémon in this comment section hasn't played sun or moon, or ultra sun or ultra moon, try it: you will see just how different they are from previous Pokémon. And I don't really respect the vga awards, least of all the handheld one because Pokémon fucking GO won it in 2016, that game was as bad quality as it gets. So don't write off Pokémon as 'recycled crap' just because it is named 'Pokémon', try it, make it past the awful tutorial and I promise you will love it.
Speedbump from Chinatown (10 months ago)
Yet USUM didn't get the award for best handheld game in the video game awards, yet metroid did, despite lower sales. Why? Maybe because it's actually better then that recycled crap!
Aquatommovies (10 months ago)
Because people love Pokemon more as the sales indicate, and why does it sell more? idk, oh yeah! maybe it might be better! MINDBLOWN

What about Miitopia ?? ...

Miitopia currently has a PlayScore of *8.11*
Josh Prower (10 months ago)
Ultra sun is just 20% new....but oh well
Philip Sparks (10 months ago)
That moment when a carbon copy of a game that got released last year gets the highest playscore on this list. And ever oasis was by far better then pokemon sun and moon. This list of game sucks
francisjoseph bonila (10 months ago)
Is dragon quest really that good?(Just from the looks alone that I did'nt want to play it)is the story like really really good or is it like cliche with a clear sign between good vs evil?

as is meteoroid, they sell poorly yet the it is always awarded higher than it should by the elitists
Tyler Dahle (10 months ago)
It's fun to collect your pokemon team and hunt legendary pokemon. But yes, they are. I think the Digimon games are much better (especially as RPGs), and I got YoKai Watch 2: Psychic specters (my first yo kai watch) and think it is definitely better than Sun and Moon...
silentblackstar1617 (10 months ago)
yea tbh i think i'd play another yokai watch game before another pokemon one

story of seasons actually IS harvest moon. (the hm publisher lost the rights for the Harvest Moon(trademark) name so now they use the original japanese name translated to english)
Carroll Nguyen (9 months ago)
Marvelous is the original developers of Harvest Moon, but Harvest Moon is not known as Harvest Moon in Japan. Natsume typically in the past published and localized the games for Marvelous under the name Harvest Moon in other countries. After a bunch of company mergers, Marvelous acquired XSeed, who published and localized some of their other games. Since Marvelous acquired a publisher, there was no reason to subcontract that work to another company. But since Natsume has the copyright for the title "Harvest Moon," Marvelous cannot localize the series under that name. Hence the name change. And yeah, the new Harvest Moon games are awful. Story of Seasons series is great though!
thenicofu (9 months ago)
iirc the developers made a post about it somewhere back when it happened. They basically said that all the new Harvest Moon games are developed by someone else, and that they will continue the series under the name Story of Seasons. And i gotta say, all the new Harvest Moon games are really bad and boring. Not worth playing at all. Unlike SoS which is one of my favorite games of 2017.

POKEMON usum was very disappointing.
LicA de stupid Ultra sun is not Dlc because its a Sequel IDIOT
Florian Lison (10 months ago)
Well, it was also at a time where the addons actually introduced new staples for the franchise, in Crystal you could be a girl for the first time, pokemon sprites were animated, there was a bit of a story with Suicune and at the time you could actually have all legendaries on one playthrough. In Emerald, like USUM, graphics were enhanced and prettier, but there were also so much added to the system because of Fire Red and Leaf Green such as item icons, wireless connexions... Once again all legendaries in one cartridge, a longer story mode with both teams. It was different enough to be called a new game. Platinum too had some great changes from the originals. USUM, though I'm playing them now and I love "some" additions, is a redoing of a recent game using same graphics and only adding minigames (that are pretty hit or miss), pokemons, move tutors (that were a thing in old gens so it's not new) and a few story elements that don't really change the course of the game and add like 4 hours of gameplay at best. The main improvement I noticed is the great amount of side quests you can find in game. But for those that already had problems with SM, the fact that it didn't improve on it's defaults like no National Dex, no gym battles, minutes/hours of unskipable cutscenes and tutorials that are taken straight from the original, the game basically hurts itself and is hit or miss aong the fanbase.
Luca De Vincentis (10 months ago)
Lil Kuzuryuu the point is the price of the dlc
Kzryuu (10 months ago)
Your point? They've been doing that since 2000, all you kids that keep saying it's a dlc, newsflash, Game Freak has been doing that for ages now, look back at Crystal and Emerald, no one cared that they were ''dlc'', basically the same game with more addons, if you don't like it don't buy it, as easy as that, USUM actually added more stuff than Emerald and Crystal did, and even then the game has sold pretty well.
