The Best Games of the Past Console Generation

Justin Belin writes, " The 360/PS3/Wii era was unprecedented. Never before had consoles demonstrated legs that could keep on running for 8 years. But even the greatest of athletes tire eventually and in recent years, many have argued that these consoles have grown long in the tooth. Even the greatest fidelity the 360 and PS3 could muster in the hottest new releases began to pale in comparison to those same titles released during the renaissance of PC gaming. Our beloved systems are not the champions they once were and it is time to give them one final stadium clearing hurrah as they head off the field and into the locker rooms where retirement awaits.

With games like Dishonored, Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Metro: Last Light, And up coming titles like Battlefield 4, The Last of Us, and GTA V, I would argue that this current gen just caught fire.

Edit* And I know I'm missing a few

It's true though that all the games you just mentioned, as good as they are, look suboptimal on consoles relative to PCs. (Except for the Last of Us which looks just sick on Ps3!)

If you really really really like shooters I can see your point, those games are all really good. I just hope indie developers and kickstarters can save the other genres that I love.

I'll agree with Bioshock Infinite and Far Cry 3, and Thr Last of Us will likely be one of the best this gen as well. I don't know if i'd call this year one of the best of the generation, but it's hard to say there was a bad year anywhere in there as well.

I still can't over how incredible this console generation has been.

Going back through MGS4 a 10th time now... I think that is my most played game this generation. It's so perfect in just about every way. There have been quite a few gems though for sure this generation.

I vote Dark Souls and GOW3. Can't wait for DS2, perfect way to end this gen.
