17 Last-Gen Video Games That Will Be Viewed As Classics In Years To Come

WC: We’ve been treated to great experiences, dismal, overhyped nonsense and everything in between, but which of the huge lineup of titles available on these platforms will – in years to come – be looked back on just as fondly as some of the classics we all reflect on now?

Spoilers follow.

good list but misses halo 3, GTA IV, MW2, MGS4 and the orange box

breakpad1396d ago

No MGS4 !! are they serious?

Dasteru1395d ago (Edited 1395d ago )

Halo 3 was crap compared to the first two. GTA IV i personally like but it doesn't really have the "classic" vibe to me, also alot of other people didn't like it. (GTAV i can see becoming a classic in 10-12 years) MW2 is CoD so no. MGS4 for sure. HL2 is already a classic and orange box is just a repackaging of it so it isn't really the type of thing that would ever be considered such.

Back-to-Back1395d ago

MW2? you cant be serious. COD4 all the way

ape0071395d ago

CoD 4 is legendary yeah but it was listed in the list

MW2 is as amazing as CoD4 imo, both are legendary

GTA4 is a classic.

The driving physics from that game released in 2008 are more realistic and better than those of GTA5 released in 2013/14.

* THAT is why it's better. Them downgrading the driving and making it more arcadey and less realistic ruined the immersion of GTA5 for me.

ape0071394d ago (Edited 1394d ago )

the nextgen version improved the physics, cars bit feel bigger and heavier, physics have that delicious gta suspension/bit floaty feel, crashes are way better too

cars on lastgen felt like paper and were stiff

the euphoria body physics is more fluid too, they cut them back on lastgen because of technical limitations

try it

List is good enough for me. I can see all these written down as classics.

pelida1395d ago

No. I hate the list already, I need to click for each single page

Rebel_Scum1395d ago

Lifting a finger is such a travesty isn't it. :p

pelida1395d ago

Oh come one, as if you like click bait sites

Dasteru1395d ago


It is the principle of giving hits to a click bait site.

Did the author really say that Gears of War 3 was inferior to 2...I have no words...

Paytaa1395d ago

Gears of War 3 definitely had more fluid gameplay but i think as far as atmosphere and story Gears 2 takes the cake.

Darkwatchman1395d ago

It's not just the more fluid and refined gameplay. The horde mode 2.0 was a great addition to the original somewhat barebones horde and Gears of War 2 was one of the most unbalanced multiplayer shooters my friends and I have ever experienced. It just devolved into a shotgun fest and no one ever used real tactics or experimented with real weapons. Gears of War 3 was the first multiplayer experience in the series that actually tried to balance weapons so that it didn't devolve into a mindless gib-Fest. That and the level design I thought was much better and the full 4 player co-op was an excellent addition. Gears of War 2 is nowhere near as good as 3.

Relientk771395d ago

List needs Dishonored and Ni no Kuni

Rebel_Scum1395d ago

Agreed on Dishonored. An underrated gem. I'd add Shadow Complex and Brutal Legend into this as well.
