interesting read and choice of games but for me I would have to say my top 5 were

Halo 3 as I spent more time playing this game online with friends than any other this gen and it was the 1st of the next gen console FPS games that set the standard for online FPS games this gen.

Mario Galaxy as this has to be one of if not the best Mario game I have ever played. Looked amazing and the level design was great.

Forza horizon as this was a nice change to the SP racing gore this gen and full of things to keep you going with the amount of free and paid DLC along with great graphics so late in the gen for a open world racing game with day and night modes.

LBP as this has to be one of the most creative and fun platform games of this generation and a very fun MP game that family and friends of mine have spent hours playing.

Alan Wake as I love the story of this game it for me was one of the best story lines and very good at making you worried about what you were coming up against next and ide love to see an Alan Wake on the next gen consoles as they could make this a very big open world game.

You may be going in the right direction, but i think you missed the point of this. :)

The author mentions games that shake up the industry, and then other games look at it and imitates it. I'd say it had more positives than negatives to it, but that's at the fault of the developers themselves.

No I did not miss the point but I see where your coming from. I was just making a comment on what games have been the ones that I have really enjoyed and the ones that felt different for me.
