Thread: Favorite Game Bias?!

I always used to say Ratchet And Clank 3 was my favorite game of the series, but lately i've changed my mind. Almost objectively, Going Commando is better than its sequel.. it has so much more content, creative worlds, weapons, challenges, enemies.. etc. The only thing UYA has going for it is that you can upgrade weapons more than once, as well as the multiplayer.


So i started thinking if i only liked UYA the most because it was my first game.. Most of my friends tend to like the game they first played the best, and i also keep seeing that statement in the forums here.


What do you guys think? Are we all biased to like the first game we played the most?

My favorite thing about UYA is that it introduced Dr. Nefarious, my favorite Ratchet and Clank villain. He is so funny and so memorable. Then again, it did come with the unique sense of humor of the game series.

Not me! Gladiator was my first, but if I quickly rank the games:


1. A Crack in Time

2. Tools of Destuction

3. Quest for Booty

4. Up Your Arsenal

5. Ratchet & Clank ('16)

6. Ratchet & Clank ('02)

7. Going Commando

8. Gladiator

9. Nexus

10. Secret Agent Clank

11. Size Matters

12. All4One

1#. QForce


...it isn't in too high a spot. Think we can all assume the reason behind it. It was a spin-off'ey game. And the original formula (hence All4One and QForce at the bottom) is a formula that works. However, ACiT was the first game I saw. But to be totally honest, it's just a fracking good game. 

For a person who played UYA as their first game in (probably around) 2007, I came to be quite excited at any new R&C game I could play after getting hooked on that one. So it wasn't until it sort of calmed down around the end of 2008, or the start of 2009 that I could look back at my PS2 collection and think about my favourites, as I barely knew anything about any PS3 games, and there was no hope of me getting a PS3.


Back then I played UYA the most, as I guess i was the most fun package for me, as it had my favourite story, characters, levelling systems (you know, like getting weapons to V7 was pretty great), arenas, minigames, and hidden collectables.


But I always kinda thought GC was better, I think. Because it was longer, and had more weapons and interesting worlds.


Ever since I got my PS3, my favourites games have alternated between GC, R&C1, ToD, and ACiT. But I always held GC and ToD pretty high up.
