This generation has blessed the world with some of the industry's best games yet, and the guys at Game-Modo have each chosen two games that they believe have made this generation of games great.
What games have made this generation great for you?
MGS4 Deadly Premenition Killzone 2 Super Smash bros Heavy Rain Uncharted Infamous 2 Gears Of War Yakuza 3
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Mass Effect Series Deus Ex: Human Revolution Batman: AA and AC ... you know what, this is kind of pointless. There are so many damn amazing games this generation.
Getting Batman: AC today. So excited :D

@ps3boyy LOL! Bubbles up for the funny comment. On top of my head: Mass Effect, Gears of War, CoD, Halo, StarCraft, Kinect Sports, Wii Sports, Mario Party and Ninja Gaiden 2.
Witcher 2, Shogun 2, Dota 2, Crysis (PC version), Metro 2033 (PC version), Max Payne 3, Battle Field 3 (PC version), Dragon age Origins (PC version), Left 4 Dead 2 (PC version), Stalker Series, Torchlight, Shogun 2.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves the most honored game this generation.
Not to forget Just Cause 2
Not surprised to see NOT ONE PS3 game on your list. I'm not gonna make a list, myself, but if I DID, there'd be at least ONE 360 game on it. There'd also be at least one DS game, a PSP game, a Wii game, etc.(I haven't played any of the recent PC games, so I can't add one personally.) C'mon, man.
Ha, the guys wastes his one bubble arguing over somebody that never listed one PS3 game. Now that's funny. In the actual article they list Heavy Rain, Little Big Planet and Uncharted but he doesn't care about that. Nope, he cares about somebody within the comment section who doesn't post one PS3 game. Why didn't you go after PoSTedUp? He/she didn't list any XBOX360 or Wii only games. Yet you have the audacity to go after me for apparently being biased? Give me a break. Here's my list: Mass Effect Uncharted Mario Galaxy Bioshock Borderlands Dead Space Batman (both Arkum and Asylum) To me they represent the best of the current generation.
Oh my god, so many disagrees aha. On topic, their are quite some games that i think have made this generation great that i don't want to list since their is so many for me.
Infamous 1&2 Mafia 2 Gears 1 &2 Uncharted 1&2 Killzone 2& 3 Black ops Battlfield 3 Resistance 3 God of war 3 The darkness Crysis2
Long lists , but wher is DemonSouls
mgs 4 started this gen for me with a bang also heavenly sword was a awesome game very very under rated. Very high production values killzone 2 is my favorite FPS of this or past gen yakuza series is my favorite open world games heavy rain is different yet great dues ex was a surprise game really great mass effect 1 was great 2nd was the best 3rd was meh uncharted series my favorite of this gen red dead redemption best game of decade god of war 3 best looking console game to date rainbow six vegas was great sequel was rushed resistance 2 had the best 8 player co-op so it shocked me pissed me when insomniac removed it in resistance 3 zipper interactive closing their doors was the saddest moment of this gen, i mean they made some of the best ps2 games. where is socom 2 hd sony? where is a great FF series SE? What has happened to you capco? where are the Japanese developers it seems like they are a decade Back from us
Mass Effect series,
Gears of War series,
Assassins Creed series
off this list makes this site ridiculous.
Super Mario Galaxy, and Xenoblade Chronicles were by far the greatest experiences of this generation. I could not imagine the gaming industry now without them. Both of which were made possible exclusively on the Nintendo Wii entertainment system Rated E For Everyone
The gaming industry would be just fine without those games.
I politely disagree, I feel that there are lots of games that have brought much more in terms of entertainment and industry change to gaming as a whole. Littlebigplanet (*Sackboy Wave*)
Great games, but Kinect Sports? They wont be remembered like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves the Most Award Honored Game of All Time.
would be the darkness, oblivion uncharted, heavenly sword, gears of war and yet it gets better and better every year. We are blessed
Witcher 2 Fallout:New Vegas Alan Wake Bioshock Super Mario: Galaxy Deus Ex: Human Revolution Deadly Premonition No More Heroes Halo:ODST/Reach Mafia 2 Shadows of the Damned Battlefield 3 Metro 2033 Dragon Age:Origins This was definitely a fine generation as far as games go.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a master piece.
I have my issues with the game, sure. But they did a much better job at revitalizing the series than I was expecting. Easily one of the best games I have played this generation.
Dam how could I forget bioshock
uncharted series god of war 3 skyrim fallout series dead space series read dead assassins creed series little big planet series borderlands crysis series infamous series rainbow 6 series gta 4 midnight club la metal gear solid 4 halo series vanquish killzone 2 mafia 2 starhawk mass effect series demon/dark souls dragons dogma batman series
Bioshock, Killzone 2, Halo 3, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, Just Cause 2(Best open world action game of this gen, easily), Oblivion, Call of Duty 4(Kick-started a monster), The Orange Box(Yes, I know it's a bundle. But it's a $60 bundle! Or was), and the best RPG of this gen: Fallout 3.
So many its hard to list them all, but my first true next gen experience was Gears Of War, that just blew me away. Gears Of War Uncharted 2 CoD4 Halo 3 Red Dead Redemption Batman Arkham Asylum Skyrim Mario galaxy Zelda Skyward Sword Wii Sports Just so many to list really.
@ ChunkyLover53 I agree with you, I too think Gears should have been on there. That was the first wow factor I got from this gen too. It really brought the whole cover system to new level. Now nearly every shooter has copied it. Mario galaxy Zelda Skyward Sword Those were great. They made me feel like a kid again lol.
little big planet 1 & 2 mirrors edge infamous 1 & 2 unchrted 2 fallout 3 & new vegas darksiders ass creed 2 prince of persia 08 madworld batman AA & AC sly 4 ratchet and clank a crack in time playstation all stars smash bros brawl bayonetta mortal kombat epic mickey tomb raider last of us
Borderlands Deus Ex: Human Revolution Kingdoms of Amalur Mass Effect 1 Skyrim
Uncharted 2 (SP) and CoD (MP) were the most influential games this generation...atleast in every FPS/TPS or action game (but even in RPG's and other genres).
Get CoD out of those lists. Though I agree about Wii Sports and Portal choices. FallOut/Skyrim and Batman Arkham games are also good mentioning. Heavy Rain was cool in the sense that it was basically a glorified movie. I want more of that.
Heavy Rain Uncharted 2 Portal & 2 inFamous & 2 Journey When / after playing these games, I really had to let a breath out and think about just how far its come. I hope next generation people stop competing in the eye-candy department and focus on stories/gameplay. GFX has reached 80/20
Good point. I forgot about Journey.
The "disagree" trolls are out in force today, aren't they?
Bioshock, RDR, MGS4, Portal 2, UC2, ME2, Deus Ex:HR and many more.
Heres my list: ALL OF THEM Without some games, this gen wouldn't be the same.
why do most of these comments have More diagrees than agrees? Most of what these comments listed are all great games.
Disagree fairies like to do that. It also happens when you say something good about Gear of War/Halo/CoD and say anything bad about MGS/Sony Battle Royale. Personally, I find it rather humorous sometimes, but the disagree button is useless. It's too easy to just hit the button. A real man would back up his disagreement (respectfully). That said, I look forward to the massive amount of disagrees I get for this.
I agree :) I think if you hit disagree the only way for it to stick is to comment why you disagree.
Right like when you say something bad about Nintendo in a Nintendo article you don't get a ton of disagrees too. Just stop the Sony fanboy BS you are trying imply. You are not being clever.
I'm going to be as objective as possible, and even ignore the dislike I have for some of these games: Portal 1 and 2 Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 BioShock Uncharted 2 Gears of War Metal Gear Solid 4 Demons and Dark Souls Metroid Prime Trilogy Batman Arkham Asylum and City Zelda: Skyward Sword Oblivion and Skyrim Smash Bros. Brawl Red Dead Redemption Mass Effect 2
for the disagrees: what in the list annoyed you?
Rockstar's games have been some of my favorite this gen. It's hard to top the quality of titles like: Grand Theft Auto IV Red Dead Redemption Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City L.A. Noire Max Payne 3 Other great games of this gen, in my opinion: Super Mario Galaxy Uncharted Gears of War Dead Space Forza Motorsport Assassin's Creed Rainbow Six Vegas Alan Wake LittleBigPlanet Portal Mass Effect Elder Scrolls Fallout BioShock And there have been tons of great downloadable games, some of which have given me more value and enjoyment than full retail games. I can't possibly go without mentioning: LIMBO Fez Super Meat Boy Minecraft Braid Journey Outland Trials Plants vs. Zombies
Uncharted 2 infamous 2 Killzone 2 and 3 Mgs4 Deus ex human revolution skyrim Vanquish Max Payne 3 Red dead redemption Dead space 1 and 2 Pixle junk shooter Twisted metal Mortal kombat God of war 3 resistance 2 and 3
Seriously, BIOSHOCK didn't make the list. Wow. But Wii sports did...
Yeah and Kinect Sports too made that list!
Heavy Rain(the best and only interactive drama) Uncharted 2(highest rated 3rd person shooter of all time and most decorated game of all time) Killzone 2(best graphics of any FPS of all time) God of War III(highest rated and highest selling hack & slasher of all time) Gran Turismo 5(highest selling racing series of all time) Little Big Planet 1(the innovator of play,create,share and higest rated and highest selling HD platformer) MLB: The Show series(Highest selling and highest rated baseball series of all time) Journey(highest rated game of 2012) Infamous 2(highest rated open world exclusive this gen) Demon's Souls(highest rated exclusive RPG this gen) Metal Gear Solid 4(highest rated and highest selling stealth game this gen) Bioshock Mass Effect 2 Limbo Braid GTA4: Episodes
None, most games are disposable...
Only owning a 360 I can only speak for games available on the 360, but here is my list: Gears series Bishock Dead Space Mass series Shadow complex Braid Batman Arkham series Read Dead Redemptiom COD (as much as some people might disagree, the series a monster) Limbo Portal series Fora Fallout Assassins Creed Oblivion series
I disagree with MOST of this list, to be honest. Uncharted 1 is probably the best game that you came up with. I am probably the least fanboyish of all PS3 owners on the entire planet but Uncharted 1 really is a good game. It was a game that actually had some depth and meaning, and a game I enjoyed playing on multiple playthroughs. Uncharted 2 on the other hand certainly wasn't as good...by a long shot. Getting the platinum was painful and the story was dull and boring. It was also heavily influenced by Call of Duty with all the military vehicles and weapons. Only thing better about Uncharted 2 was the graphics, and graphics don't make a good game, it just makes a game LOOK good to blind the masses from thinking it is a mediocre excuse of a third person shooter with light platforming elements.
99.9% of players disagree. That game is still a benchmark for consoles rivaled only by a handful of other exclusives anywhere. And that's even debatable.
How was it a benchmark for consoles? Was it the linearity? Was it the light platforming elements? Was it the Nolan North voice acting? Was it the...oh I think you are proving my point that 99.9% of gamers think graphics are the only important quality of a video game.
Wow, the disagree trolls are out in full force today.
I think it's because there are to many people saying "no these are the best". I skip those comments. Nobody wants to here what you like. My vote is for Mario 1 :P
Brad Langford is clearly not an experienced gamer lol
Anything Rockstar makes, MGS4
Halo 3 Gears of war 3 Reach Saints row 2 Just cause 2 Dead space 2 Modern warfare 2 Black ops Red dead redemption Infamous 2
