Default Is Here Comes the Pain still the best WWE video game?

Topic.

I just got WWE '13 and I LOVE IT. I don't think I've played enough to make a decision like this though. I love Here Comes the Pain to death. What a tough choice. What do you think?

HCTP is a classic.The new one is pretty good though.

I think HCTP ranks quite highly in terms of top games in all genres, whereas WWE13 doesn't. Oh and WCWNWO Revenge is the greatest wrestling game of all time (apart from Fire Pro and No Mercy ofc )

I thought 'Shut Your Mouth' was better than HCTP. Still though, No Mercy is my #1.

Yes it is, he has the best wrestling engine of any game and it also I think has the best roster.

Shut Your Mouth was a huge improvement on Just Bring It but I think of the three HTCP was the best. Had the best roster for me and the gameplay was the most fluid.

I think WWE '13 has a mighty fine roster itself and the gameplay is a little slower paced but it's still exciting to play.

Nostaligia marks will always go with HCTP. It is a good game, but what people don't seem to factor in is had it been released in an environment like today's it would've gotten scrutiny. Feature wise it's very hard to really compete with what WWE '13 can offer now, but a lot of people will still pick HCTP for it's gameplay. In the end, it's up to you. If you enjoy the game it doesn't matter what the internet tells you.

No, Here Comes the Pain was never the best WWE game. I'd go for Smackdown 2 personally but a lot of hardcore gamers will tell you that one of the N64 games would be #1.

yes and it's not close

WWE 13 is really good...until you finish the Attitude Era mode. And then there is nothing enjoyable left to do.

HCTP's season mode is still fun to play through 10 years later.

and yeah HCTP's fast-paced gameplay > today's slow "realistic (lol no)" gameplay.

No Mercy's storyline modes were beyond awesome. I played that shit like every hour that I was awake. No one will ever forget the pains of having to defend that hardcore title with the 24 hour rule. And McMahon always screwing you in the end.

The one aspect they have not been able to recreate (which is ridiculous considering today's technology) from No Mercy was the physics engine. You could have a person mid-way through a move or in a grapple and be able to successfully clothesline or attack them to break the hold. I still have yet to play a wrestling game that did that as well as the N64 games did. They've tried to bring that back but it's never been the same.

I guess you could say the games of today are more "realistic" but I don't find them anywhere near as fun.

And an honorable mention goes to Raw and Raw 2 for PC/Xbox. Those games were the shit too.
