Best Game Directors Of This Generation - ‘Talking About My Generation’

With the closing of another gaming generation we thought it would be cool to pay homage to the great ones of this generation. It’s our way to say thankyou to the creative minds that brought us some of those amazing gaming experiences that will push the limits into the future. It’s a series we call ‘Talking About My Generation’. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, BioShock, BioShock: Infinite, Mass Effect 3: Omega, PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I think just giving Neil Druckmann credit for the The Last of us without even mentioning Bruce Straley the other game director isnt very good.

Bruce Straley has both Co directed The Last Of Us and Uncharted 2 give the man some credit.

yeah buddy he must get some credit ,but naughty dogs never realy bring their game directors in big confrencess ,i dont know but we still belive them,it is unlike ac director ashraf ismail and bioshocks director were most famous dircetors this year ,companys show them proudly and both are great guys and most of the people know them i think these directors also must be well known.

i would remove ND devs and Patrice and add: Hideo Kojima "MGS4 and MGS:PW" how could they not mention this man?!!
David Cage "Heavy Rain and Beyond"
Hidetaka Miyazaki "Demon's Souls and Dark Souls"
Hideki Kamiya "Bayonetta"
Yoko Taro "Nier"

MGS4 sucked, Heavy Rain was novel but nothing special, Demon/Dar Souls aren't know for their story or characters and Bayonetta had no direction, it was just frantic combat all over the place which isn't a bad thing for everyone obviously.

I think God of War III deserves a place since Stig Asmussen directed the most acclaimed and bestsellng hack 'n slash game ever.

Enric Álvarez deserves a mention because he made Castlevania relevant again with the amazing Lords of Shadow and it is the bestselling game in the series history.

Whoever directed Red Dead Redemption, Alan Wake and Deus Ex: Human Revolution should also be included as best directors.

It seems you're one of those. "MGS4 sucked, *sobs* it had long cutscenes"

GOW3 was great, but NG2 craps all over it. Same thing goes with Bayo.

Patrice Désilets? Sure! "Let's put some historical folks and events here and there to make teenager players feel like they participate in something intellectual".

Everyone with a brain knows Assassin's Creed's attempt in blending (a poor) fiction with (an illusionary intelligent) historical background is just pretentious.

Where the hell is Hideo Kojima, David Cage or Jenova Chen?

The Award for best game direction of the generation goes cleary to Neil Druckman and Bruce Straley for The Last of Us! I like to compare them with the Coen Brothers, because there are many similarities to the outstanding movie No Contry for Old Men. TLoU is just as ambitious.
