Hi guys!

I planned this thread already in the last year, but I thought it would be forgotten during the best-game-in-2018-award and the days from christmas to new years eve. But the time has come now...

to ask you about the best game the well known brand Rare has ever produced in the past!



And Rare released a lot (awesome) games, here is a list about them

What is your favorite and why?

I like the Donkey Kong series for SNES and most of all the part in the middle, number 2: the characters are good playable and the fact that hidden levels (not the bonus stages!) exist for the first time in Donkey Kong makes it to my favorite.

Banjo-Kazooie for N64 is very closed and a very good game that would deserve a mention, if it would not be so popular and known.

Is there a rare game you never played, but you would like in the past, even in presence?

In my case, yes: Conker's Bad Fur Day. I was so keen on the game since I saw the first game sequences to it. The black humor and the money-grubbing squirrel with his sarcastic behaviour would have made my day - if I had ever got it.

Now, it is your turn, guys. Tell me something about YOUR favorite Rare game here!

As someone who's always been more into PC gaming than console gaming, the majority of their games haven't been available to me. :no: That said, I did play GoldenEye 007 a few times when visiting friends who had N64s, and it sticks out in my memory (and its reputation and legacy only seem to get better as time goes by)!

Yep, you told me. Has really missed some good games, not only the ones which were produced by Rare. In turn I think I have missed good PC games, as I was too focused on consoles. Don't sweat it.

A couple of times, way back in 2010/11. It was my friends who were really into it, I gave it a go to see what the fuss was about, but it wasn't really my thing. :nah:

No Man's Sea. Wait, sorry it's called Sea of Thieves isn't it

Also, before we discuss the correct answer (Goldeneye), can we just establish if you played Odd-job you're a cheater

Thanks for information. League of Legends is a game I have never linked with Rare from the first second.

Yep, that is right. Sea of Thieves is one of the games which was released by Rare.

Never played Goldeneye, so I can't reply to your question about the bond game.

I'm aware Sea of Thieves is a rare game (I've played it), i was comparing it to No Man's Sky because it also was launched with basically no game play.

Not a question, it's a statement of fact. If you played Odd-job, you were cheating

Battledawn , played it mainly in h.school when it had thousands of active peeps on each world. It's a rts game and therefore very time consuming but incredibly enjoyable with a great community.

ps: lol i thought rare , as in unknown games not an actually company mb l

Don't know any Zelda game ever made by rare. And I played a lot!

Yep, and the most expensive. How much money did you pay for this game to play? over 100 pounds? as a rarity, it costs a lot.

JoshDarnIt What is the matter with you? I am surprised that you, a retro gamer, has not played a rare game, seems so.

Soz, I kept getting a bunch of notifications yesterday and couldn't keep up with everything so I ended up forgetting to reply to this thread

But alas, I'm here now

Sorry to tell ya but I've never played any games by Rare But that doesn't mean I don't know all the classics! Conker's Bad Fur Day, Banjo-Kazooie, Goldeneye, DK64, Perfect Dark etc.

I hope to own some of their games one day
