Red Dead Redemption is my game of the generation. What is yours?

mii-gamer writes:

For many Wii U owners, the 7th generation is already over as the arrival of the new Nintendo console marked the dawn of the new generation of gaming consoles. Personally, most games I will purchase from this point on will be for my Wii U and the secondary gaming console of my choice (most likely the PS4). Effectively, the 7th generation is over, so it is a perfect time to declare my personal game of the generation.

The process of selecting the game of the generation is subjective. Each gamer will have their individual choice of game with their own unique reasons. Personally, the game that brings the fondest memory when I look back at the generation is the game of the generation. In 5 years’ time when I reminisce about the 7th gen, what game will I remember the most? What game instils nostalgia? What game best represents the experiences had in the generation. For the 7th gen, that game has to be Red Dead Redemption. (PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Xbox 360)

Heavy Rain is exactly what i was about to post
Larry L  +   619d ago
Yup, Heavy Rain is the first thing that came to mind for me as well.

For me, it's either that, Dragon Age Origins, MGS4 or GT5 which will be replaced with a 6 later in the year since it's the same game just better in every way.

We still got some BIG'UNS to come too!!

I've been saying this for quite a long time now, but I think this was the best generation of gaming. The amount of good quality games with great features this gen has been a never ending stream it seems like. People on the internet with an opinion seem to badmouth this generation of gaming in every way possible, but imo that's just because everyone now has to be a cynic. It makes them feel "cool".....or sometimes it's for worse reasons, not loyalty for their own brand, but hate for any other.

No, It hasn't been the worst generation of gamING, it's been the best in the opinion of this gamer whose been gaming as long as consoles have been around (just about). But it certainly has been the absolute worst generation of gamERS.

yea stalker scared the crap out of me, definitely deserves recognition.
JoGam  +   619d ago
The title asked a question so people will reply in the comment section with their answer. I just don't see why people will disagree with what other people claim as their favorite game this generation as if they know they're lying.

Demon Souls. NOT to be confused with dark souls. They ruined the online indark souls amongst other things. Demon Souls was Epic. Invasions left and right. The intensity. Everything. I feel for people that only played dark souls.
Shuyin  +   619d ago
Completely agree.
BlmThug  +   619d ago
MGS4 for me is the best game of all time. That game just invoked so many emotions within me :')
Shuyin  +   619d ago
Yup. I actually cried at the end. When Sunny asked him why Snake hadn't appeared at the wedding the Colonel said something along the lines of: "Snake needs some time rest. He had a hard life.
Thank you...Snake.."
That coming from him right after the scene where Snake supposedly shot himself just made the tears flow :'( ..
It was, next to FFX, the only game to ever make me cry.

P.S: Imo MGS4 also included the best multiplayer of this gen.

I don't have 1 game that did it for me. There are probably 20 I could list that had an awesome positive impact on how I view games and they all made me appreciate games even more.

A lot of those are "catch up" games I've been playing via 3DS/DS/psp/...games I missed out on.

This gen for consoles was the most generic yet. It offered good games but not that many that really stood out and did nearly everything right.

There are also the games that are good that I haven't played or may never play because I'm not into them.....I can still recognize their impact on gaming though.

Probably The Walking Dead Survival Instinct. /s

Tough question to be honest. RDR is definately up there as are MGS4 and Uncharted 2. I'm going to go for something odd though. Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction. I had so much fun with it consistently throughout the generation. I just kept going back to it.
Larry L  +   619d ago
I would ALMOST agree with Tools of Destruction. The game really was so good. But unfortunately it's one disappointment was SO major that it just doesn't even come to mind. That is that the online in the last PS2 Ratchets were so great and so much fun, that Tools not having a similar online caused me to even cancel my pre-order.

Toold of Destruction with like...Full Frontal Assault's online would have been my dream R&C game.
Roper316  +   619d ago
Valkyria Chronicles without question for me.
ColinZeal  +   619d ago
STILL haven´t unwrapped my VC... Kinda waiting for a trophies patch or something. Never really fell for the demo although I played it 3 times over the years... Ugh!
Roper316  +   619d ago
I don't think there will ever be a trophy patch for this game. I also think he lack of trophies added to it being my favorite game. I played and enjoyed it just for the game itself and it was the game this gen that I really felt a deep attachment to the characters and really cared what happened to them.

The demo doesn't do the game justice imho.
ColinZeal  +   618d ago
I don´t think there will be a trophy patch either, but nowadays I feel like i´m wasting my time when i´m playing a game without trophies. I need to get those stamps of approval in a weird psychological way...

Come on, really? I think the game being really good added it to being your favorite game, not the lack of trophies...

RDR for me too. Spent tons of time playing that masterpiece. Bioshock a close second
SlapHappyJesus  +   619d ago
Hard.
New Vegas, if the amount of time played is to be believed. Game still hasn't gotten old for me.

I would say RDR because for me I have never finished an open world game, but I did for RDR, in fact I dont partically like open world. Uncharted 2 was awesome though, plus flower and journey and Heavy Rain, in fact I changed my mind Heavy Rain it is.
fossilfern  +   619d ago
Bayonetta or Witcher 1/2
Bathyj  +   619d ago
LbP2
camel_toad  +   619d ago
Bioshock 1 for me, first to come to mind anyways.
caseh  +   619d ago
Binary Domain for me.

Fallout 3, Uncharted 2, Infamous and Demons Souls all get mentions but when someone asks 'Whats the best game you've played recently' I automatically think Binary Domain.
merciless  +   619d ago
Uncharted 2

Honestly I was a ms fanboy until I saw naughty dog put the ps3 through it's paces. That part where you're being stalked by the tank and the tank is turning everything around you to dust...
y.
That was just *\0/* so beautiful, so immersive, that I didn't know whether to stop and take pictures or try and record that ish.

Uncharted 2 because it blew me away and redefined a genre.
Jenzoid  +   619d ago
Demon's Souls probably.
Captain Qwark 9  +   619d ago
Dark souls, the witcher 2, or dragon age origins for me
Majin-vegeta  +   619d ago
Tie bewteen MGS4,KZ2 and Uncharted 2.

Red Dead Redemption as well.
Gamesgbkiller  +   619d ago
RDR is also my game of this gen.
yugovega  +   619d ago
there was way too many games to pick just one. from bioshock to gears to uncharted to Mario galaxy. rdr is a very good choice though. that may be the most memorable for me so i'd have to agree. rdr best all around of last gen. (followed closely by just dance and Kinect star wars/s)
r21  +   619d ago
InFamous 2. Such a great game :D
Daver  +   619d ago
Personnaly I prefered Infamous 1 a lot more than Infamous 2.
hennessey86  +   619d ago
It's hard to argue
With RDR but I've enjoyed so many anes this gen its to hard to choose
DasTier  +   619d ago
RDR & Halo 3, no other games kept me coming back so often.
Double_Oh_Snap  +   619d ago
Right now... Uncharted, all three of them. Not counting Vita because I haven't played it.
aiBreeze  +   619d ago
Gears of War.. it epitomizes everything what a next gen title should be. To this day I've yet to find a game this gen as addictive as the original gears.

Special mention for Call of Duty 4 too.. love it or hate it, it redefined the FPS genre.
Games4ever  +   619d ago
The witcher 2.

Bought x-box 360 just to play this game

And it was worth it!!
SlapHappyJesus  +   619d ago
It really was a great port.
iistuii  +   619d ago
RDR, Gears (all of them) & Uncharted (all of them) in that order.
brianunfried  +   619d ago
Tie: Red Dead Redemption and Fallout 3/New Vegas
avion  +   619d ago
Dark souls
jokia005  +   619d ago
Uncharted 2 for me.
Games4ever  +   619d ago
Far Cry 3 was also one of the best for me, this gen.
