Top 5 WWE Videogames
This list list chronicles my personal favorite videogames that the wwe or wwf have ever put out.
The WWE has been putting games out for a while, but i'm going to try to widdle it down to my top 5 favorite videogames.
To be one of the best wrestling games it must have a combinatination of fun wrestling, and Season or Storymodes. I think that my list will reflect that.
Without further ado here is my list
5. Wrestlemania 2000
WWF WrestleMania 2000 is a professional wrestling video game released in 1999 on the Nintendo 64 console. It was based on the World Wrestling Federation's annual pay-per-view, WrestleMania.
This game not be the flashiest, but it has a bit of charm to it i guess. For some reason I have always loved this game.
This was the first WWF game to allow players to edit their favorite superstars. This game was made right at the height of the Attitude era so it had alot of the greats, DX, Mick Foley. It even some forgoten wrestlers, such as Too Cool and The Blue Meanie.
4. Smackdown Vs. Raw 2006
Smackdown vs. Raw was the second of the Smackdown vs Raw videogames.
This game featured alot of new gameplay, trying to break away from the arcade like videogames they had out before.
This was the first wwe videogame that had a realistic escape through the cage door effect.
But the biggest reason that I put SVR 2006 number 4 on the list is because of the GM mode, where you could draft your own roster of superstars and compete against the other brand.
3. WWE Day Of Reckoning
O.K. in all reality the game play wasn't that great with DOR, but what do you expect with game cube.
The biggest reason that I put DOR up so high was because of the great story mode that it had.
You made your own superstar and go to either Raw and Smackdown and try to move up in the ranks.
This included joining Evolution on Raw or a made up faction on Smackdown.
As you got further into the story mode the better your wrestler got.
2. Smackdown Here Comes The Pain
Smackdown! Here Comes The Pain was the 2003 videogame that the wwe put out.
This game is the first to feature the Elimination Chamber Match, and the Bra & Panties Match.
This is the first and only game in which you can extend the fight off of the stage set.
It is also the first game where wrestlers have animated select a superstar screen opposed to having the superstar's real life faces as in previous games.
In this game you would go to the GM either Stephanie Mcmahon or Eric Bischoff depending on what brand you were on, and ask to have a title shot, change brands etc. this is the second game to have that.
1. Smackdown Shut Your Mouth
This is my all time favorite wwe videogame, from the season mode to the actual game play I loved it.
Season mode you would go play events that actually happened during the year of 2002 and 2001. Inlcuding the nWo invasion, Kurt Angle head shaving, Mr. Mcmahon vs Ric Flair, etc.
Also during season mode you would walk around the arena and talk to other wrestlers which sometimes resulted in matches. When walking around you could go outside and onto a train.
One of the best parts about this game, I think is the secret way to go up on the fist of the smackdown stage and jump off, that was always fun.
