The Best Games of this Generation

As this wonderful generation of ours ends, rigbybot127 takes a look back at the absolute highest watermarks this gen had to offer. (PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I'd say several of the titles on this list are easily more overrated than Skyrim. Both TESV and Fallout 3 would make my top 10, along with Dishonored, RDR and DX:HR.
Riderz1337  +   563d ago
I think Skyrim is a tad bit overrated. I started playing it on PS3 and the game is just a complete mess. I would have rated it like a 4 or 5 out of 10 had I only played on PS3.

Recently started playing PC version and it definitely plays better but still, Skyrim wouldn't be in my top 10. Probably top 20 for me personally.

i went as far as the bugs allowed in skyrim on ps3 , then i bought a new pc for skyrim and put 400+ hr in it and the dlc
i'd have red dead redemption on my list as well , i wasn't a big fan of journey or walking dead (but they were still very good games)

I loved Skyrim i had 500 hours of play times. Then it corrupted all my saves.... I dont own Skyrim anymore.
thehobbyist  +   563d ago
Skyrim isn't the best for a great many reasons. Firstly being that it has way more bugs on consoles than on PC's. Then the fact that it just wasn't that impressive. I mean, seriously. The spiders, one of the first enemies. Just flaccidly drop to the ground. When a giant spider falls to the ground while appearing to be standing on an invisible platform. Any AAA developer worth their salt would be ashamed.

The last of us

Uncharted 3 and Rayman Legends ahead of Last of Us? Really? Everyone has their opinion.

Looks like someone doesn't own multiple systems.
rigbybot127  +   563d ago
What is that supposed to mean?

as beathuber pointed out i don't just not see xbox exclusives, because i don't believe any xbox exclusive belongs on a 10 list but any exclusives from Wii or PC. i can only assume anyone who would put Rayman legends in a top 10 could enjoy games like Mario galaxy or Donkeykong kountry returns enough to put on the list.

I thought both Rayman and Ratchet had better platformers than DK and Mario this gen, though Mario's were fantastic, had I not gone with Legends, my next choice would have been Tools of Destruction.
remanutd55  +   563d ago
A Crack in Time is better than Tools of Destruction.
omi25p  +   563d ago
Really? You dont think Halo 3, Gears of War, Forza, Alan Wake, Trails Evolution belong in a top ten list?

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMk
_QQ_  +   563d ago
I don't deny those are great games,but i don't believe they are better than say,MGS4,Starcraft2 Red Dead redemption,Skyward Sword,Mario Galaxy,Xenoblade,Uncharted,Bio shock,Smash Bros,and Metroid Prime 3. already thats 10 games. i don't like racing sims, i'll pick most genres over shooters aswell.

Of course thats my opinion.

The biggest problem i see with this list?
Theres WAY too many great games for just a top 10
rigbybot127  +   563d ago
Certainly don't disagree with that. Most people only care about the bare-bone core of the list, and would call the rest "filler".
andrewer  +   563d ago
Definitely not my list
AKS  +   563d ago
Not pleased that neither Demon's Souls or Dark Souls made this list. They'd be at the top of mine.
CrusRuss  +   563d ago
Personally I place TLOU above Uncharted. Uncharted was fantastic but the characters and their struggles never felt that real. It's more Indiana Jones vs The Road. At the end of Uncharted you feel happy it's over and eager to jump into multilayer. At the end of TLOU you sit numb, staring at the screen, trying to understand what the f××k just happened.
nashedpotatosbro  +   563d ago
why is the last of us only #10? it should at least be in the top 5.
DasTier  +   563d ago
This list needs more Red Dead Redemption and Halo 3
cockmaster  +   563d ago
fallout3??
rigbybot127  +   563d ago
Just narrowly missed the list.
YodaCracker  +   563d ago
I don't know how I feel about this list... Some of my favorite games of this gen are GTA IV & V, Red Dead Redemption, Super Mario Galaxy, Gears of War 1 & 3, The Last of Us, Super Meat Boy, Far Cry 3 and The Walking Dead.

Put TLOU at number 1. remove portal 2 and the walking dead, and put in dark souls and RDR. You've got my list.
badboy776  +   563d ago
PS3
CrusRuss  +   563d ago
Please don't include halo in any lists. Kthx
Movieworld  +   563d ago
As soon as I saw there was no Mario Galaxy or Mariokart Wii in this list it lost all credibility.
JackieCruise69  +   562d ago
Huh. Seems like a kinda bland list to me, but eh, opinions.
PeteyMcPickle  +   562d ago
My main console this generation has been the 360, and looking at the games on my shelf that have spanned this generation, I'm not surprised at the lack of 360 titles in this list. Microsoft have been stuck on Halo and Gears of War this gen, and what else do they have that's even top 50 material? The majority of my games are multi platform, and I'm now just realising that going Xbox this gen was a big mistake. Definitely won't be making that same mistake this time around.
Jagsrock  +   562d ago
Come on Mario Galaxy edges out Rayman and as good as GTA V is the more I play it the less I feel like it's a masterpiece. It's a great game but #2 in the entire generation no way.
