The Gamer Horizon Crew present the games that best represent the last 8 years of gaming: The Top 25 Games of the Generation.
Pretty good list. Glad to see them pick from several platforms but where's the representation from the handhelds? Where are the PC games? And do all three Mass Effect games *really* need to be on the list?
This list was formed via a point system based on the individual Top Ten Lists of the Gamer Horizon editors. We actually asked ourselves if all three Mass Effect games really needed to be on the list, but based on our points system, they had to be.
You know what? That's legit. If the list is based on a consistent way of voting, I can respect that, even if I don't - personally - think all three games are in the Top 25.
I think each game is it's own thing and they do form a collective whole more than any other game series did this generation. Though I personally enjoyed Mass Effect 3 quite a bit, I don't think it's anywhere near one of the 25 best games of the generation. But, such is the nature of how we scored this.
CRAPPY list! And all 3 Mass Effects? Like seriously?? Where are Bioshock, RDR and Mario Galaxy? GTFO
halo 4, tlou, and gta 5 is way to low should be top 10
Everyone's entitled to their opinions, but I'm scratching my head at ME3 being ranked ahead of those three. That's just bizarre.
I completely agree with you. The way we scored it means that because one of us listed it as number one it had more weight than Mass Effect 2 which was lower on my list. Believe me, it drives me insane to see Mass Effect 3 that high on our list. I like the game and all, but not top 10. Such are lists.
Not halo 4. Do you realize journey won game of the year the same year halo came out? And I like Journey more personally, never played anything like it. I really don't know why some people like halo still, master chief turned into a cheesy protagonist that little kids look up to. There's so many better games now days. I liked halo 1 and 2. But then again I may be a little bias because I don't like many xbox games like gears (but the first fable was awesome). So my opinion may not be valid. I just honestly really don't see it in halo anymore not being mean, I just thought xbox fans would want a new ip by now. 343 studios can't even compete on Bungie's level in my opinion. I mean you guys have titanfall now, but it's another shooter and not exclusive. I'll be playing it on PC to give it a try.
Halo 3 Had more impact this gen, Trumps Halo 4. Uncharted 2 should be #1 GTA is atleast #5 If you fix those items this list makes sense, if not, you are dead to me.
halo 4 trumps halo 3 in everything beside online trust me I'm a big halo fan
Surprised not to see Bioshock 1 - but again, opinions!
good list, shit order.
I am glad to see 999 mentioned. That game is an overlooked gem and masterpiece of gaming.
Heavy rain/Bioshock/Infinite/Red Dead/UC3/God of War3/Sleeping dogs/Journey/Limbo >>>>>>>&g t;>>>> ALOT of those games
where's red dead redemption and god of war 3?
On your list!
Site loses a lot of credibility with a poor list Uncharted 2 is in about the right position, but TLOU? Sorry but that is either 1) or at worse 3) COD is actually on the list?! wth Where is Red Dead Redemption, Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite? LOL This dude must be joking? Is this dude even a gamer?
Hi, thanks for reading! The list is a compilation of our individual top 10 lists. I detailed the scoring in the 2nd paragraph. That said, I have to ask, so because games you think should be there aren't, all of a sudden I (we) am (are) not gamers? That makes zero sense. Not everyone liked The Last of Us, as hard as that is to fathom. I liked it quite a bit but only two of us included on our individual lists. Them's the breaks. Yes, Call of Duty 4 is on the list. You didn't like it I take it? So naturally that means no one else should, right? I do appreciate you reading and commenting but you should probably consider the words "subjective" and "objective."
I would add these, love this games: BioShock 1 and Infinite Dishonored Borderlands 1 and 2 Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Red Dead Redemption Assassin's Creed 2 Tales of Graces f
Although I TOTALY disagree with the list and or order, website got +++'s for not putting each game on a separate page. They put the entire list on the same page, amazing. Others should follow. Well done gamehorizon, you are now added to my Pulse.
1. God of War 3
Not a single Nintendo game?? =Fail
The way we did the ordering is detailed in the second paragraph of the article. Unfortunately no one scored any Nintendo games high enough on their individual lists for them to be included in the overall list. And for me, personally, I haven't owned a Nintendo platform since the SNES. Sorry.
