    The last of us - purely because it's such a cracking story.

    Watching 2 pro players fight againts each other in SMB Melle is intense and exciting for me. I would include melee to the list.

    The first Gears....before it became wrought with clichés and sequels.
  • KA87 - August 1, 2013 11:18 a.m.

    Yeah the Walking Dead Game is one of the best if you are just watching. To Quote Plumbers Don't Wear Ties: "Its a game that plays like a movie."

    My girlfriend likes to watch me play Shadow of the Colossus more than anything else. I think it's because the journey there is pretty relaxing while the battles are epic and more believable than a monster movie. Uncharted is a good one as well, so long as you're not fannying around looking for treasure instead of going the main path.

    Smash Bros is always a blast to watch, as well as play.
  • asspills - July 31, 2013 2:24 p.m.

    Shadow of the Colossus is a blast to watch! Especially if the person watching hasn't ever played it before. It's like a giant epic CGI monster movie.

    For me, Ikaruga. Partially because I can't get past level 3 on easy, so seeing people do it two player by themselves, awesome. Or seeing dot eater is cool too.
  • pl4y4h - July 31, 2013 11:41 a.m.

    My college watching days are now leading me to say that the best games to watch are Fifa 13, Smash bros (any of them), Mario party 1, 2, 3, 4, or 8 (preferably drunk or high), and Mario kart 64 or double dash (Preferably Kario Mart) lol

    Even now, WipEout HD still looks SOOO GOOD considering that it was an early PSN release. I think it looks the best when playing Zone mode, because of the limited colour palettes and all those abstract swooshes and...*dribble* ...anyway, it's definitely the sort of game that onlookers will undoubtedly complement and become absorbed in.
  • GOD - July 31, 2013 5:12 p.m.

    I definitely agree about zone mode. It can get really hard but the visuals are crazy awesome and super eye catching.
  • Rhymenocerous - July 31, 2013 11:05 a.m.

    Resident Evil 2.
  • Smash_Bro - July 31, 2013 10:05 a.m.

    I'd say that Smash Bros. is much more fun to watch than most traditional fighting games, simply because of all the the really close calls you can only achieve in that series. I'd really like to see a "10 games that are excruciating to spectate," and Portal (1 or 2) need(s) to be on it. Have you ever watched someone struggle to solve one of those rooms when all you want to do is take the controller and do it for them??
  • TanookiMan - July 31, 2013 10:11 a.m.

    See my answer. I take sadistic pleasure in it when it's my friends, mostly because we're super competitive about who can beat the game first.
  • JarkayColt - July 31, 2013 11:29 a.m.

    I agree that Smash Bros is just as fun to watch, hell, Brawl even had a "Spectator Mode" included in its online portion. The fact that you could place a bet on any one competitor to win made it so much more exciting as well, because inevitably you'd end up yelling at your slightly hopeless fighter now that they're, of course, completely responsible for throwing all 10 of your coins down the drain. (*cough*)
  • shawksta - July 31, 2013 9:38 a.m.

    neat list. My brother tends to spectate games that arent of gameplay value like LA Noir (Before it bored us to death) and sometimes RPG's like Penny Arcade's Rainslick games. Also Ace Attorney on the Big screen, Because Ace Attorney is always worth it.
  • TanookiMan - July 31, 2013 9:19 a.m.

    I like watching my friends play puzzle/ platformers like Limbo. When I know what's coming next right before a spider skewers them... I love the terror and surprise on their faces. That might make me a bad person.
  • tyraniton - July 31, 2013 8:54 a.m.

    for the street fighter one did you guys mean EVO where it says E3?
  • agentkuo - July 31, 2013 8:26 a.m.

    Super Smash Bros. Melee is a great game to watch.
