You can check out all of the Community submissions by heading to each category in the PC Gaming forum:

Most Memorable Protagonist

    I don't disagree. To this day I never got the hype around Final Fantasy 7. But to me 6 was a better game and that's just preference.

    A lot of this comes down to a bunch of games put in a pool and people voting based on preference. The R6 series has some good games but I don't think they have defined gaming as much as some of the title on this list, not all of course as some choices are pretty meh TBH.

    Has any game EVER had good dialogue? Kind of a race to the bottom isn't it? ;) thank god for "skip" buttons... Dear gaming companies: please hire movie script writers, and more importantly, movie editors and directors... If you do already, hire better ones :P

    And then what, we're paying 100$ for the game?
    dont really give a shit about edition/movie parts of a game.

    would like to see EVERY game having a SP mode that works offline and not some castrated online-crap they sell as such (ubi-> siege),
    and maybe start doing demos (first level etc), so we can experience it and decide if we want to buy the game.
