the top 25-50 games in TI-73 thru TI-84+SE history
« on: March 28, 2009, 12:42:52 pm »
What are the top 25-50 games in TI-73 thru TI-84+SE history?

Is there a list somewhere that i have overlooked, or has this never been asked upon?

There are articles on the best RPG's, and every competent calculator gamesman knows of the prestige of the legendary Phoenix by Patrick Davidson.

But are there other games worthy of praise still wallowing amongst the beginning BASIC programmer's dreams of fame (AKA some beginner's crap that they uploaded to ticalc.org)
Then again, maybe not...

heh phoenix isn't even that great of a game. sorry to burst your bubble. It's good, but not in my top 5. I'd have to look through all the good games again sometime to pick the top 25 or so games.

Phoenix was the shit back in the days, because back in the 90s, there weren,t a lot of better games for z80 calcs. But it dropped in many people favourite lists when Gemini, Fire Track and advanced ASM games with grayscale and other awesome goodies came out. Plus, people making 100 clones of phoenix, flooding TIcalc.org archives, made the game reputation drop, as often you'll get the wrong version and most are crap.

I don't have much of a top 20 myself, but Final Fantasy: Tales Of Magic 2 is still my favourite calculator game. Then comes Gemini 3D

Just to note, my list is only of the Top 20 most influential game, and I made that a long time ago.

At any rate, Phoenix is famous, and that doesn't make it a great game, but it is in fact a great game. Usually I can never put down Phoenix until I finish the game and have all the weapons. Then I just go through about 2 or 3 more times destroying everything. Phoenix would definitely make it into my top 5, I don't see how it couldn't.

Either way, the list is basically impossible to create.
There are 10 types of people in this world-- those that can read binary, and those that can't.

well. u could always make a page. and have ratings on them by othner people. and i guess the list would form itself while people vote/rate
