Best Game In A Game Series

What do you think is the best(or at least your favorite) game in a game series/franchise?

Ones that come to mind for me are...

Final Fantasy VI
Dragon Quest VIII
Breath of Fire 3
Super Metroid
Super Mario Brothers 3
Castlevania Symphony of The Night
Legend of Zelda
Resident Evil 2
Sonic The Hedgehog 2
Mega Man 2

I'd agree with a lot of that list.

I think Final Fantasy VII and X are fantastic entries, though, and they do deserve the love they get.

Mega Man 2 and Symphony of the Night are candidates for GOAT, in my opinion. Those games just knock it out of the ballpark.

I'd throw Pokemon Gold and Silver in there. Those games were top notch.

Also, I'd change LoZ to OoT. But that's just me.

For me...

Final Fantasy IV
Zelda: A Link to the Past
Ultima VII: The Black Gate
Dragon Quest/Warrior... gah... it's between III or IV. So, so good. I'd probably give it to IV.
Super Mario Galaxy
Castlevania: Bloodlines
Contra III: The Alien Wars
Mortal Kombat: Armageddon
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Now I'll get a little more obscure...

Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom
Leisure Suit Larry II: Looking for Love (in Several Wrong Places)
King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow
Police Quest III: The Kindred
Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire
Space Quest V: The Spinal Frontier
Emperor: Battle for Dune

For Zelda, I going with common ground and saying a Link to the past was the best game in the series.

Sonic 2 is almost always picked as best in franchise or best of the 2D era.

It’s good and all but Sonic and Knuckles could link up and created 1 big game with 3. Even alone it introduced a kind of separate storyline with Knuckles.

I think 2 is only picked because of the spindash and people remember the stages more for whatever reason. Because they might have played it more often?

I do think there should be a separation from 2D to 3D for all major franchises in general. There’s a difference in how they play and a lot are ongoing.

Sonic:
2D S&K
3D Secret Rings - unpopular opinion but I think the gameplay is a cool change up. Black Knight didn’t seem to be able to recreate it. I’ll have to play it again.

Mario:
2D SMB 3
3D Odyssey - I didn’t have a 64 til later on and only tried out the others. This choice might change.

MK:
2D Trilogy
3D Armageddon - have not played the last 2 so this might change too.

I’ll have think about some others.
