ArcadeSushi: What is a Swan Song Game you ask? A Swan Song game is a game that comes out toward the end of a console’s life-cycle, or more specifically, toward the beginning of a new console’s life-cycle. They are the last few bits of greatness that a console has before everyone gets bored with it and goes on to the next-generation.

Meanwhile, launch titles for the next-generation have tended to be far less impressive. These are the 10 Best Swan Song Games.
