The Top Games of the Seventh Generation

SuperPhillip Central writes, "In one week the second console of the eighth generation will launch. Now that most of the noteworthy games of this past generation have already released, SuperPhillip Central would like to take the time to make mention of the top games released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii home gaming consoles. The type of game that makes our list must have one or both of these requirements: 1) It was influential, ground-breaking, or revolutionary, and 2) It was one of the best games released this generation. If for some reason you disagree with a game on this list or wish to add some of your own suggestions for games to add, please leave us a comment below." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Super Mario Galaxy, The Last Of Us, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Wii, Wii Sports, Xbox 360)

"The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword"

Really? I know it came to both gens but I would rather see Twilight Princess in their instead. SS felt like a step back for the franchise and got boring/repetitive after a while. It didn't have that charm other Zelda games did

"Rayman Origins"

Sorry but despite being a good game I wouldn't say it was a top game of this gen. Read Dead Redemption, Oblivion, Ni No Kuni, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid 4, Borderlands, Assassins Creed 2

I could go on

Rayman Origins was a fantastic Platformer probably one of the best I've ever played (pixel precise)...Also Ni No kuni was charming and fun but NO WHERE NEAR top of the generation...

The only one I don't agree with on the list is wii sports...I saw nothing with it that deserved to put it on the list other than it came withe very console...

Last, Dark souls? really? Why not Demon souls? I felt like Dark souls was a step down in terms of detail, even though the combat felt more refined.

Opinions opinions opinions, i could say TLOU,Uncharted,darksouls,or LBP don't belong on the ist either for very valid reasons too. The games he listed are high enough quality and criticaly aclaimed enough for the list to be fair and not have much to complain about for an opinion list.

Its not like he is trying to Claim Beyond two Souls or viva piñata are the best games last gen lol!

I much prefered SS to TP

I thought it was TP that felt barren, cold and lifeless whereas SS had that classic Nintendo magic

but yet Mass Effect 2 and Assassins Creed 22 I would agree are top games of the generation

I'd go with Wii Sports and Red Dead Redemption as both stand out as very unique and go into the category of UT99, BF1942, Alternate Reality, Cytron Masters, Seven Cities of Gold etc etc etc.
Most other games are just variants of titles past.

THE LAST OF US 15 minutes in, this game had me teary eyed already, that's when I knew "this is going to be something special".

When picking best games of the generation I think it's best to choose 1 genre defining game from each genre for variety.

e.g.

Open World - Red Dead Redemption
hack n' slash - God of War III
Action-RPG - Mass Effect 2
RPG - Skyrim
FPS - Bioshock
TPS - The Last of Us
Racing sim - Forza Motorsport 4
Racing arcade - PGR4
Side-scrolling platformer - LittleBigPlanet
3D platformer - Super Mario Galaxy

etc.
