The Daily Five: Reasons Why This Was the Worst Gen Ever

"For all of those rosy moments and memories, though, there are plenty of things about this console cycle that really sticks in our craw. Stuff that really grinds our gears. Gets our goats, even. As such, it only felt right to reciprocate Monday’s posi vibes and air out our grievances." - Joe Garcia

I had a lot of fun with the games that came out this generation. However, I also feel like this gen was sort of just a stepping stone for a lot of developers and publishers. Hopefully a lot of the lingering ailments the author has pointed out will come to pass and we can experience the true potential of what it means to game this decade.

This gen lasted to long(8 years) should of ending 2 years ago...but they wanted to extend it with kinect and it forced developers to be held back technically,hopefully the upcoming generation should only last at most 6 years

If anything, there were far too many good games! I haven't even played the likes of SSX and some of the ones mentioned above!

Gamers are incredibly spoilt these days.

too many shooters and classic series like resident evil, silent hill, final fantasy, ghost recon, and splinter cell all went downhill. this gen was good for shooters and thats about it. if you liked anything else it was slim pickings and if you did find a game in the genre you liked it was more then likely a letdown.

it's more of a 2 headed beast for me.

Broken incomplete games released at full price. Some may get fixed some may not but they'll all have cash grab over priced DLC for you weather it's playable or not.

I quite like the current gen, it's brought lots of great new IPs: LBP, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Uncharted, Portal. What I don't like though:
1) no game from team ico this gen
2) no new Persona this gen
3) too many dumb shooters
4) too few RPGs
