What? No Empire Strikes Back for Atari? I probably wore that cartridge out, I played it so often. I'd put Kotor at the top, of course, with TSL second.

TIE Fighter is rightfully at the top. Notable omissions, however, are Shadows of the Empire and Jedi Power Battles.


Edit: Dark Forces isn't on there either. I guess it's fair to pick one from the Jedi Knight series to represent it as a whole, as they're all pretty good. Jedi Outcast seems like a good choice.

Too many games from the same series on there. There are tons of Star Wars games and more than 10 good ones. But I guess what can you expect from IGN.

I would have went something like...

1. TIE Fighter
2. KotOR
3. Rogue Squadron

It's lame that Star War: Episode I Racer wasn't on there, though.

Shadows of the Empire...


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Seeing as I've never played TIE Fighter *ducks* I'd have to say that KotOR is the best Star Wars game.

TSL doesn't exist to me because of how much of a cockslap the incompleteness of it all was.

TPM was not that bad. In fact, it's not a bad game at all. It suffers from a somewhat excessive over the head camera angle, but other than that, it's a fine game.

It had some solid foundations, however the s***y camera broken force powers and overall crappy combat made me want to break the disk in half which is why I stopped playing it after the 4th level or something like that, I dunno it was a long time ago.

If you liked it that's fine and dandy, more power to you. However, like I said, I'd rather slam my nuts in a car door than play it again.

Rogue Squadron... I lived in that game for months.

The only game I really don't think belongs on that list is Lego Star Wars.

To anyone who's never played TIE-Fighter and are wondering why it's always at the top of the list, allow me to pitch in as I played this with my brother back when it came out (it's still one of his favorite games) and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.
It's basically KotOR nearly 10 years before there was KotOR. It holds up even without the "for its time" excuse. In terms of story length, depth and especially dialogue (spoken dialogue at that) it was far beyond anything else pretty much until KotOR itself. IMO it reached a level of immersion that stands up to current-generation games. I remember sitting there and listening to the radio chatter while my brother played and being absolutely amazed (yeah I was 6 but still), and to put things in perspective remember this is 3 years before Star Fox 64. You are a TIE-Fighter pilot in TIE-Fighter. And yeah it's a little pixelly but it still looks and sounds damn good, and it achieved a great sense of scale.

Whether or not its "better" than KotOR I can't say, as I never got past the first level of that game (after having most of it spoiled unfortunately). I'd say they are pretty comparable in terms of content (disregarding the quality of the graphics); and in terms of gameplay it's a matter of opinion, but I personally enjoyed TIE-Fighter more than KotOR. We're talking about 10 years difference here so if you put things in a historical context, it's obvious why TIE-Fighter has to be at the top.


Disclaimer: I'm making these claims based on very old memories so I might be a little biased.

I don't have a hard time saying Tie Fighter is better than KOTOR. And as far as I'm concerned the "for it's time" excuse doesn't exist. I still play commodore 64, and old or new games are all on the same playing field as far as I'm concerned.

You know what.. I'll say something some people may consider blasphemy.

Star Wars Galaxies, pre NGE or whatever they did to **** it up. I'm sorry, but I loved that game, especially the space combat. Then they went and butchered the crap out of it

Dude, I played that game when I was 9 or 10... Do you have any idea how frustrating a game like that is? Where not only is the gameplay horrible, but you get stuck and lost for hours at a time. Getting lost in the Trade Federation Ship, getting lost in the forest level, getting lost in the underwater city, getting lost in Theed, getting stuck and killed on Tatooine, getting killed on Theed again, getting killed in the palace, then the ending.

Also, as a supplementary to all this SW game talk, this is a great video series that covers nearly every single one of them made in a great VH1 Behind the Music-esqe way. http://www.gametrailers.com/game/the...ospective/6389

No. I was around 10 back then too, and I loved the game. It was not frustating at all, except on Tatooine, because you didn't knew to which people you should talk in order to get the podracer parts. But still, the fact that there were so many people on Mos Espa that you could talk, offered you many interesting side quests.

The gameplay was good, as it was easy to play. The fact that you got lost so many times doesn't make the game bad (I guess it's the first time I hear someone getting lost so many times), as the fact that I like the game doesn't make it good. But overall, the game doesn't belong to the "bad Star Wars games" list, neither to the "good". It was an okay game. 6.5/10

However, it still belongs to my TOP10 Star Wars games (in no particular order):

1. Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
2. Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace
3. Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire
4. Star Wars: Battlefront II
5. Star Wars: Star Wars: Battlefront
6. Star Wars: Rogue Squadron
7. Star Wars: Battlefront
8. Star Wars: Starfighter
9. Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
10. Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II (+ MotS)

Yes, no KotOR.

Agreed.

It should be on the list rather than XWv.TF... which was the weakest of the X-Wing titles.

Though I have no issues with Tie Fighter taking the top slot.

Seems like a bit of an oversight to me. As someone pointed out, a lot of "flying" games on there for a top 10 list. DF is the main reason I ever ended up playing any of these games in the first place. Frankly, I'd rather play KOTOR again for the umpteenth time than pick up Lego Star Wars.

*Mouses with back and forward buttons on it are great, until you accidentally hit them and lose all your typing progress because you're in quick post mode*

My personal favorites list:

1) JK2: Jedi Outcast (PC)
2) DF2: Jedi Knight (PC)
3) Rogue Squadron (PC)
4) Dark Forces (PC)
5) Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox)
6) Episode I Racer (PC)
7) TIE Fighter / X-Wing (PC)
8) Galactic Battlegrounds (PC)
9) Rebel Assault 2 (PC)
10) Err...

Yeah, sure, there were more games I've played. But I don't think playing the full version of TFU for 90 minutes counts. The Battle for Naboo was a buggy piece of ****. The The Phantom Menace game is nothing more than a terrible memory. The LEGO games didn't rub me the right way. I barely touched Battlefront II. Never played Jedi Academy other than the time I torrented it in 2007 and played two levels (I know, terrible, right?). I managed to get my ass kicked on the tutorial levels in Empire at War. I played only a little bit of Commando.

I list TIE Fighter and X-Wing in the same spot because the only real difference was the story, right? Well, when I was 6 or 7, all I cared about was shooting stuff and changing the fire pattern on the B-Wing. And thinking more of it, I'm not entirely sure if we ever had TIE Fighter, but we certainly had X-Wing, for some reason the interior of the A-Wing shall always be burned into my mind.

KotOR is definitely a solid choice. Same for Jk2. I loved Power Battles when I was little, but I don't think it's a very good game in retrospect. Same for Phantom Menace. Sooo glitchyyyyyyyyyyyy

Same situation here.

For me the list goes:

1. KotOR
2. JO
3. SWGB/SWGBCC
4. SWRC
5. SWBF/SWBF II
6. RS
7. SotE
8. TPM


I sadly never played any of the older JK games, nor the X-wing/TIE Fighter games. Or the Rebel Assaults.

TSL was awful - I didn't even try to finish it. JA was a shinier version of JO with a ****ty story. EaW was garbage. TFU was a letdown.

Frankly, LucasArts is one of the worst gaming companies at the moment. HORRIBLE games in the last few years. SWBF/SWBF II were barely acceptable to be listed as "good" in my books (regardless for how many maps I made for them).

- Former Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Star Wars: Battlefront, and Star Wars: Battlefront II modder. Used to go by the name "Majin Revan."

how have you been dude?


I have fond memories from TPM, possibly because I was a kid at the time that would eat up anything Star Wars related, no matter how ****ty it might have been. I would not want to revisit it today and ruin my memories of shooting gigantic Jawas with laser hand-cannons.




Pondering the mystery of rainbows, UFOs, and ****ing magnets.

No such thing.

Actually, I never got to play TIE Fighter. I played X-Wing and X-Wing vs TIE Fighter. I dunno, flying around in TIEs always seemed like a drawn out way to commit suicide. I mean, seriously - why fly around in an unshielded POS when an A-Wing fits the bill better than any TIE in the Navy.

Although I did once drop a Mon Cal cruiser using a TIE Interceptor. 1 life, no lies. It took about 3 hours.

("flying games") Yep, one too freak'in many of them on that list.

And I kept falling asleep playing Lego Stars Wars, was daydreaming every other minute, man that game was about as entertaining as watching someone pee their name in the dry dirt.


Personally, my list would go something like this...


1. SW Rebellion (an oldie, but goodie)
2. JK Dark Forces
3. JK Dark Forces II
2. JK:JO
5. JKA
6. Kotor

All PC games.


SITH HAPPENS

I absolutely adored Jedi Power Battles when I was a kid. I probably rented it enough to have bought it 3 or 4 times over.

Sure, looking back its probably not nearly as "good" of a game as any of the others, but damn, it was fun to play.
