It's between Black and 2012/PS3 for me. I know the PS3 game is pretty out there in terms of story, and has nothing to do with the older games' story, but it is a reboot, and I actually like the universe. I like the over-the-top bosses and the gameplay. It almost makes me think of a fusion of the classic games' more crazy nature fused with the darker atmosphere and "realism" of Black.

But I do think Black is overall my favorite. Lots more characters and stories for each one, smooth gameplay, and more advanced techniques. It also has a pretty deep universe, and I also enjoy the music and sometimes desperate atmosphere, as well as a type of gameplay more focused on strategy. The PS3 game has some strategy too, but it's far more grounded in controlled chaos rather than hit-and-run, waiting, and planning.

On a side note, I do like Head-On as well. It has similar gameplay to Black, but continues the storyline of the classic games. I always find that I'm in the minority that likes things that other people do not. Oh well...

Small Brawl has the coolest roster... only game that has Hammerhead, Mr. Slam, and Darkside all in the roster.
TMSB is classic TM, same physics engine as TM2, there's nothing to really hate about outside of the ugly graphics and sound effects which is why the game got bashed by critics. The game was originally supposed to be released on PS2 but the idea was dropped. Too bad, would have been more popular if it had graphics like TMB.

maybe i messed up my wording, but i dont hate small brawl, far from it. but stacking it up against all the other tm games ive played, it is the 3rd worst. well, now that i think about it, id say the 1st game is the 3rd worst. and nothing against 1 either. im sorry if it sounded like i didnt like small brawl. also, darkside is playable?

Yeah, you can unlock Darkside in Small Brawl.  basically you need to shoot napalm at the kitchen guy so his fart becomes explosive and opens up a secret room. here's a vid to help with that (and unlocking axel) https://youtu.be/OWtjNu6U0Mw

Also i didn't think you said the game sucked or anything, but you are asking what a person's "fave" TM game is, not what we think is necessarily the best. The best may not be my fave per say. I think TMB & TM2 are the best, yet I am sentimental for TM1 for TMSB, so I think those are my 2 faves.

As online games go though TMBO is my fave, then TM for PC, then TMX last since I missed out on TMHO for PSP.

And while I don't think you'd like TMX or HeadOn more than TMB you should check them out and make up your own mind on them. They have good things about them like Varia31 mentioned, but lower your expectations when you play them. I don't mean to sound too harsh on TM Head On either, it's a pretty cool game, but the game-play feels a bit dumbed down and easy (example - pathetic DarkTooth battle). TM 2012 on the other hand had an experimental final boss fight that most fans did not like (Spoiler - you end the game in a helicopter).

TM Black for sure. I loved a lot of things about Head On such as the return of the comic book like cutscenes and the inclusion of Twisted Metal Harbor City but it was just too easy. There wasn't even an online mode made for the PS2 version.

In my case, the entire franchise is my favorite game, with the exception of TM3 and TM4, even though I played the heck out of the two games as a child (I found them easier than TM1 and 2, but as I grew I played them less and nowadays I barely play them).

The best game to me is between Black and 2. Black because of the graphics (mainly art style), world, characters, stories, overall preentation and of course the gameplay (wich has been talked to death in the TMA so I won't mention details). TM2 because all of the above too; you could say the graphics are awful nowadays, but I have a soft spot for early 3D graphics, you can see how everything is made and I like it all: the textures, the low poly models, the sprites, the "particle effects", etc.; and I find the graphics in TM3 awful because they made everything 3D and, for example, sprite weapon items look 1000x better than those plain 3d models 989 made. But what lets me more astonished about TM2 is the gameplay: how the cars drive, the different homing renges of the rockets, etc, etc. I can play it like it's 1996 because the game hasn't aged one tiny bit. I think that in terms of gameplay it is the game that has aged better from that year and the years before.

My next favorite game is TM 2012. Everytime I hear it mentioned I feel the need to play it. I love the huge maps and that each map can be segmented into smaller maps. I also like the newly introduced cars (sadly no characters). The gameplay is obviously inferior to Black, but I like that it is extremely fast-paced, colorful and the weapon selection is huge. I also LOVE flying vehicles in TM (I'm alone in this tho).

Then there's TM1 and Head-On. I probably like Head-On more in terms of gameplay, characters and art style (I really love colorful in TM), but the whole ambientation in TM1 is maybe my favorite from all games, it's grittier (I'm more than likely contradicting myself) and brownier, more urban and trashy (helped A LOT by it's graphics). It also has attacking peds.

The next is Small Brawl, wich I always thought had a different engine than TM2 (until now), it feels really different and for me it's better in TM2 (Rogue Trip: Vacation 2012 is the BEST use of the engine). I still like it a lot, nice selection of vehicles and it's weird that it hadn't at least one vehicle from Black. Tree Top Rumble is my favorite level.

I like the levels, car selection (even with almost no previous vehicles) and some of the new weapons in TM4, even if some were more flashy than useful. I completely adore the ambientation and story (I can watch the intro video every time I play the game). The characters mostly sucked. The gameplay is deeply flawed. And I rather have a sountrack like in TM2 than a licensed one.

In TM3 you can't run off a cliff without turning down your car. And fuck the Mortar.

Reason small brawl is lower on the list for me has to do with the floaty physics. It may be the same engine as TM2 but the physics are tweaked I promise you. I recently played through each game again.

It's not a bad game at all, and I really enjoy the RC theme, but when making twisted metal kid friendly it always loses that edge. Though incogs attempt at least had the spirit there.
