What is Your Favorite Game of the Generation so Far?

"We were originally going to have this Ask PSLS be about whether or not we would turn all of Chandler’s bones into adamantium if given the choice (read this and watch this at 3:00 to understand that), but with Amazon UK holding a poll to determine the greatest game of the generation when the generation still has many games coming out, the switch seemed obvious." - PSLS (PC, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Last Of Us, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Wii, Xbox 360)

Ridge Racer 7 is an... odd choice.
Foolsjoker  +   337d ago
I hated that game...
abzdine  +   337d ago
I could think of The Last of Us but i will say Heavy Rain that game was so special to me.

it's interesting to see the opinions of everyone

Honestly mine would be Fallout 3, when I first stepped out of the Vault, I was so amazed for some reason and was in awe, I will never forget that moment.
2nd would be Bioshock, same feeling.

The Witcher 2.
The_Infected  +   337d ago
The Last of Us would probably be at the top of my list.
Ezz2013  +   337d ago
same here
AirJohnston  +   337d ago
That's my favorite game of all time, tied with Final Fantasy X. Although I never got to play Red Dead and I've never really been into the GTA series so I'm not really sure what I'm missing in those.
FlameHawk  +   337d ago
Final Fantasy X was awesome but there are better games, maybe because its been so long since I played it, excited to play the HD version.

AirJohnston  +   337d ago
@FlameHawk yeah I definitely don't think it's the best game out there, because there are definitely problems with it. It's just that I have so many memories of that game, like watching my brother play it from beginning to end and bonding with the characters, so I just can't help but love it.
GribbleGrunger  +   337d ago
It's TLOU for me too, by a country mile.
ILive  +   337d ago
Uncharted 2 and Final fantasy 13 for me. Uncharted 2 because it was unlike anything I 've ever experienced. Final fantasy 13 because it was my first ff, its amazing graphics, and intense, yet fun battles.

Awe the disagree fairies are going strong I see.
ooquis  +   337d ago
Me to. But lets say before TLOU it would be Reddead redemption. Then uncharted3 and Killzone 2.
TheGrimReaper0011  +   336d ago
"Your opinion is wrong, I dislike"
"Mine would be uncharted 2"
Seriously people, i understand not agreeing with something, but this dude (or girl) just stated an opinion.
NYC_Gamer  +   337d ago
Red Dead Redemption
Foolsjoker  +   337d ago
Good Choice!
Wedge19  +   337d ago
So many great titles this gen, hard to pick just one.
Foolsjoker  +   337d ago
Yeah, a generation lasting 8 years allows for a ton of great titles - Not sure I could just pick one.
nosferatuzodd  +   337d ago
indeed but my top pick are metal gear solid SOP
uncharted 123 heavy rain final fantasy 13 infamous 1/2
ninja gaiden sigma call of duty 4 the first one street fighter 4 killzone 2 demons souls mass effect 2 best one out them all no contest that's my list

Uncharted 2.

I love The Last of Us but i'm taking into account that it is alot fresher so it might have an unfair advantage in my head.

Gotta to give honourable mentions to COD4, AC 2, Mass Effect 2, The Walking Dead, The Last of Us, & GRID

Uncharted 2 is my personal game of the generation :) made me buy a ps3
starchild  +   337d ago
That's a good choice too. One of my favorites.
Aces17  +   337d ago
I agree with your feelings on The Last of Us I only recently played it and while its safely in my top 3 this generation I don't know if I at this point will say its the best.

Uncharted 2 has a slight edge on Mass Effect 2 and LoU.
itBourne  +   336d ago
So many games to choose from lol, but from what you and most are saying I think its much easier to pick developer of the generation = P
XboxFun  +   337d ago
Alan Wake!
starchild  +   337d ago
That game stands out in my mind as well. One of the most memorable games I played this generation.
KazHiraiFTW  +   337d ago
Very underrated, looking forward to Alan Wake 2.
YodaCracker  +   337d ago
My personal favorite is Grand Theft Auto IV, with Red Dead Redemption a close second. You can probably guess who my favorite developer of this generation is.
aquamala  +   337d ago
Fallout 3
VicodinViking  +   337d ago

I definitely put more time into Warhawk over any other game this gen. that game was digital crack.
Mr_Pinky  +   337d ago
Uncharted 2, Last of Us, Bioshock, Red Dead, Borderlands, Batman AC, Lost Odyssey, Dead Space, Oblivion, Fallout 3

I can't choose.
GDDR6_2014  +   337d ago

The people have spoken
Mr_Pinky  +   337d ago
Sorry but that is bullcrap in my opinion like when it won game of the year and Bethesda won studio of the year.

I'm not saying it's not a good game but it's hardly game of the generation. I mean for starters Oblivion was much better then it and the Last of Us lost against it. I don't see how a top notch polished game with a great but different online mode lost against something as buggy and glitched as Skyrim where one console version took ages to get working and for the DLC to come out.

CrossingEden  +   337d ago
xbox got the dlc before anything else -_-
VicodinViking  +   337d ago
Skyrim was far more fun to play, with greater variety of things to do & see. TLOU does not have this variety, you're stuck going on the path forced upon you.

I'm glad a game like Skyrim is getting more love than a movie like TLOU.
Corpser  +   337d ago
Witcher 2 for me but Skyrim is a good choice, so glad it won
DEEBO  +   337d ago
MGS4, god of war3, last of us,heavy rain,dragons crown,uncharted series.but MGS4 is my choice.too much history with that series.back from the 1980's and still going.
game_infected  +   337d ago
My game of generation will change after 17 september !
VicodinViking  +   337d ago
It's very likely that GTA V could top everything, I hope it does.

Can't wait to go back to Los Santos.
j-blaze  +   337d ago

Dragon's Dogma
Red Dead Redemption
Resonance of Fate

1. The Last of Us
2. Bioshock Infinite
3. Uncharted 2/3
4. Demon's/Dark Souls

Never got to play Red Dead or GTA though
fsfsxii  +   337d ago
NGS2 because it kicked my ass
I_am_Batman  +   337d ago
That's a tough decision. It's impossible to name just one.

GoW 3 had some of the best boss battles and really epic moments so it has to be a strong contender for me.

The Darkness 1 had such a great story and a unique atmosphere. It's a shame it didn't get the recognition it deserved. It's one of my favorite games ever.

Bioshock - A masterpiece from the mastermind Ken Levine. One of my favorite settings this gen.

Uncharted 2 is probably as close as you can get to a thrilling adventure while sitting on your couch. It also has some of the most likeable and believable characters in video games.

Honourable mentions: Resistance franchise, Infamous 1 and 2, Batman Arkham games

Mass Effect 2 is the one I played the most. That game got me into completing everything fully. Bad Company 2 gave me hundreds of hours on MP. I still play World at War co-op campaign.
TooTall19  +   337d ago
Killzone 2 is my favorite. Honorable mentions would be Fallout: New Vegas, Ni No Kuni, Bad Company 2, Bioshock, Starhawk, and Fat Princess.
nooneknows  +   337d ago
Simple, The Last Of Us.

No game on this gen has made me so emotional and made me want more. The Last Of Us did that. From start to finish I felt connected to the story and characters.

MGS4, long engaging story, brilliant protagonist.

Uncharted 2, Fun, great MP, actiony.

Red Dead Redemption.

Demons Souls

Valkyria Chronicles

Can't say Skyrim. It was too buggy for my PS3. I should'v bought it for 360.
TesMgsFan  +   337d ago
For me MGS4, because of the story, characters, gameplay and the online
drsnoopyseussdog  +   337d ago
Game Of This Generation!
Metal Gear Solid PeaceWalker
Super Smash Bros Brawl
evilbart  +   337d ago
Dragons dogma if you haven't played it pick it up now for $20 fantastic game
