The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

7 Best Video Game Franchises Of All Time

Posted on Monday, April 22 @ 16:00:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


3. Metal Gear Solid


Despite its convoluted plot and wacky over the top characters (including a diaper-wearing monkey), theMetal Gear Solidfranchise has one of the most loyal and rabid fan bases in all of gaming. Is it the series' approach to stealth that has everyone bowing before Hideo Kojima? Probably not. Is it a combination of long-winded yet engaging cutscenes coupled withunforgettablyinsane plot twists? Absolutely.

Ever since Kojima revolutionized the stealth genre on the original PlayStation with so many unique and endearing oddities, gamers have been hooked on the ongoing tale of Solid Snake and his "father" Big Boss. With each subsequent installment, Kojima and his gang have managed to outdo themselves in virtually every way imaginable, and there's no doubt that he's on track to do so once again withMetal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.



2. The Legend of Zelda


You won't find many "greatest games of all time" lists that don't include eitherThe Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time orA Link to the Past. For many, these two games are the very pinnacle of game design. The SNES classic gave players a vast open world and an array of dungeons to explore, laying the very foundation for the future of the franchise and several copycats. Then, when the series made the jump to the Nintendo 64, just about everyone's mind was blown when they entered Ocarina of Time'sHyrule Field for the first time.

There aren't many franchises that have theheritageand selling power of Zelda, which is why Nintendo holds the series so dear. We may only get one new console entry every four or five years, but when it arrives, it'sguaranteedto have that Nintendo seal of quality. This is the Big N's most epic franchise, and as such, has earned a spot so high up on this list.
