I dont want to vote, show me the results!
OTHER: (I added this info in an edit, sorry about the lack of an "Other" Option)
If you want to vote for a game that isn’t here, simply mention it in a post, and I’ll try and add it to the "COMPLETE POLL" at the bottom.

CRITERIA:
(How I picked the games)
Games that are the 3rd and most recent in a series. i.e. A 4th has not been released yet.
Additionally, they must have 3D graphics.

COMMENTS:
I would love to put in more games, but alas, there are but 8 slots.
Tis a motley collection that includes, Doom 3, Warcraft 3, & Silent Hill 3.
This selection is a bit random, but I hope everyone has fun with the poll anyway.
Take care every one.



COMPLETE POLL:
Poll results including write-in options so far. If you want to vote for a game not listed, just post saying something like "I vote for...". Please use the word "vote" so that I can tell that you're voting.
Remember, this is just text, so it wont update instantly. [ Last update 16th Aug 2005 10:21pm]

You should of put a 'Other' option as there are loads of game's that have had more then 3 series.

Mine has to be Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind... it is the best RPG that i have ever played

Thanks for the posts guys.
I agree The_Doc, an "Other" option would have been good.

I started writing the poll options into the slots directly, then I decided I should probly gather them into ms-word first. I realized after posting the poll, that the poll options I took down in ms-word had not replaced all the ones in the actual slots. Specifically Morrowind was supposed to replace Quake 3.
...sigh... (my first poll, and I worked so hard not to mess it up. Kind of funny.)
At any rate, yes, Morrowind is very cool. I recently got the "World of faces" mod which has around 650 additions. I recommend it.
You can get it here I think.
World of Faces: Morrowind Mod

As for Doom 3, well put DaveMan_CI. Doom 3 is amazing. I feel a bit bad for the guys at "id" though. They obviously worked as hard on that game as Valve did on HL2, but Doom 3 seemed to suffer the wrath of reviewers a lot more.

As an interesting aside, it's worth seeing a rendering method called "Relief Mapping". It's similar to bump mapping but it produces an effect that looks almost exactly like actual 3D geometry.
I mention it because there is a third party patch that allows Doom 3 use this rendering technique. (there is also a movie of it in action.)

This image is just a plain cube with Relief Mapped textures.

You can get a realtime demo here:

Again, thanks for the comments and take care!

Yes indeed. The Duke speaks, and wise are his words... or, word.
Burnout 3 Is easily the my favorite racing game. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it.
Any way, good pick Duke!

I would like Burnout 3 more if it wasnt EAified that is the crap music and stupid Crash FM and it also doesnt have counters for drift and oncoming .

If Burnout 2 and 3 were to have some kind hybrid lovechild without any input by EA ----- Best. Game. Ever.

I still like it though (just gotta turn music off)

LordSeafood you are exactly right. However one cool thing about Burnout 3, music wise, is that it's the only xbox game I have seen that allows you to use custom soundtracks. (I know there are others, but I have never held one.). As for Crash FM... I dislike it so much, I feel like making a grammatically incorrect haiku about it...

Eldar Scrolls 3: Morrowind. More freedom of exploration than any other game I know of. Why`s it not on the list?

With regard to custom soundtracks, as I said I'm sure there are quite a few games that support them. I have never actually seen one in person other than Burnout 3.

As for there being "hundreds" of XBOX games that support custom soundtracks.
At present there are a little over 500 XBOX games. If "hundreds" meant around 250, then 1 out of every 2 XBOX games would support custom soundtracks. While I don't think there are that many, I may have just been unlucky.

I've haven't gotten to play TimeSplitters 3 yet, but I've seen it played, and it looks asome! Good pick SkipRat.
As an aside, cool user name.

I agree, I love Morrowind. In fact to quote my very first post not including the Poll.

Before I continue I would like to point out that, "Mr. McStickyMick" is fun to say.

As for Morrowind not being in the list, I also explain that in the same post. It was supposed to replace Quake 3, but I inadvertently didn't copy Morrowind in to the option field before submitting the poll. I apologize for that. If you look below the official poll results however, you'll see that I am informally tracking the poll results for all the games voted for including games voted for in posts, and your vote has been added as of this message. Infact your pushed morrowind up to tie with Doom3, and Burnout3. Burnout3 you probably noticed is also not in the official list.

Anyway, thanks for you posts guys, and take care!

i never played any of the previous morrowinds so i wouldnt know what to expect from 3, which is the one i have

i like morrowind and all, but the fighting scenario's are just too. flimsy... Then that over used crack sound when you get hit, it even plays when your stuck in lava when it should sound like burning.

*swing* *crack* *fireball* *crack sounds* *death*

i dont get it, the combat system could have definatley been improved.

but.... i voted for doom3

I agree D2k, the game itself is brilliant but the combat system was rubbish. I still play the game nearly every single day and my stats rule and i am the highest rank you can be with the imperials

Oblivion is going to RULE... hopefully
