JumpToGamer’s Top 10 Games of this Generation

With Next-Gen consoles the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 just around the corner and a new generation of games on the horizon, we took some time out to think of the games which have really made us sit up and take notice of them, whether for their great gameplay or innovatory. With so many games which could have made our Top 10 Games of this Generation, we regrettable had to leave out so many cracking games, but we will try to justify why these games have been our favourite of this generation! (Dark Souls, Fallout 3, Far Cry 3, Halo 3, PC, Portal 2, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, State of Decay, The Last Of Us, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Xbox 360)

uncharted 3, TLoU, Far Cry 3?? i humbly disagree
uncharted 3 was the worst games i've played in 2011, TLoU and Far Cry 3 were alright games far from being best imho

"uncharted 3 was the worst games i've played in 2011"

That must have been a good year for you then considering these are some of the worst games in 2011. Uncharted is a great game. I wouldn't say the best this generation though

I would say The Last of Us was one of the best games I played this generation. One hell of an experience. Far Cry 3 was a good game. There were some issues which stopped it reaching (for me) that best game of the generation category.

If you think U3 was one of the worst games of 2011 you're strange. TLoU alright? I don't get what you're missing. They both are some of the best looking games of the generation, they both have some of the most popular characters this generation, the most attention to detail, two of the greatest soundtracks this generation, some of the best cinematic moments.

You would think at least some of these points would stick, they're near enough indisputable. How could you be sop different from the majority?

Lol you again, you are so silly. No one cares for your bullshit opinion, that's the biggest crap i've heard.

Sometimes it takes all of my mental power to try and accept and respect another's opinion, but to call The Last Of Us "alright" is inconceivable to me.

The graphics, the story, the mo cap, the emotions, the writing, the tension, the characters. It doesn't get much better than that in a videogame.

*Takes deep breath* But i respect your opinion.

what do you usually play? the sims?
Tontus  +   822d ago
Uncharted 3 is nowhere near the worst game of 2011, it's not a great game, above average/good imo, but not the worst. TLoU is a great game, maybe fans exaggerate about how good it is but it really is great.

As for JumpToGamer's top 10 list, I only agree with 2 choices.

My top 10:

- God of War III
- Mass Effect 2
- Bioshock
- Red Dead Redemption
- Uncharted 2
- Skyrim
- Gears of War
- Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
- Alan Wake
- The Last of Us

Honorable mentions: Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, LittleBigPlanet, Batman: Arkham City... this has been a great generation!

I think this is a respectable list chief.

The inclusion of Mass Effect 2, Skyrim, Bioshock, God of War III and Gears of War are essential in my opinion.

Personally I would not include Alan Wake, despite its promise I don't think it lived up to the expectations. It was (and is) a great game, but not one of the best in my humble opinion.

Similarly with Castlevania, another fabulous game but I am not sure I could include it in the top 10.

I would probably substitute these two with Arkham City and Valkyria Chronicles.

Again tho squire, I think your list is better than the one published in this article.

3.Mass Effect 2
4.The Last Of Us
5.Heavy Rain
6.Read Dead
7.Call Of Duty 4
8.Deus Ex HR
9.Bioshock Inifnite
10.Ill go ahead and reserve the last spot for GTA5
LoveOfTheGame  +   822d ago
Finally someone remembers that COD used to be good, by making one of the best FPS multiplayer game ever, COD4.

Take out Heavy Rain and Deus Ex, throw in Demon Souls and Halo and I completely agree lol.

Edit: Wait, Gears instead of Halo.

Gears has no place on my list.
LoveOfTheGame  +   822d ago
Well to each his own.

Now agree that my opinion is correct lol.

Everyone loves to hate on uncharted 3 but... Think of it this way, naughty dog revealed a lot of the cool levels way ahead of time. Now imagine playing uncharted 3 without knowing about that crazy plane level, or that awesome ship level and so forth... They already showed us the goods, that why people had a hard time calling it the best in the series... Now for the last of us I personally stayed away from all the press and clips shown and it payed off in the end...
Tontus  +   822d ago
No, Uncharted 3 is hated because it's a very lazy game. After the huge critical & commercial success of Uncharted 2 they just cloned that game and called it Uncharted 3. Just watch this

Uncharted 3 had awful pacing, plot holes, piss poor story, restrictive gameplay, poor gunplay (at launch), dull antagonists, weak multiplayer... It just isn't a great game, not bad obviously but Uncharted 2 is much, much better.
SkippyPaccino  +   822d ago
Calling naughty dog lazy is unacceptable!!! Lol! Uncharted 3 was very ambitious and the final product showed that at the end... I believe they released to early after uncharted 2 and gave away too much information on plot, especially the reviews... Lol! They almost gave you every plot points except for the end... We as gamers had nothing left to discover, all we had left was to replay everything that they already showed us which crippled the final product.....

I'm hoping that naughty studio A is working on a totally new ip... The only uncharted 4 I would expect is one that says "uncharted 4,here's the map now find the f*ing treasure" cue the uncharted them song. Lol
LoveSpuds  +   822d ago
Tontus, you are of course entitled to your opinion, but the fact is that almost every single outlet gave it top marks and there are millions of fans lapped it up and loved every minute.

While most can accept it probably wasnt as good as Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3 was still streets ahead of almost anything else released that year.

Uncharted 3 was amazing.
