EGMR writes: "Last year, as the new consoles were coming in we looked back at the past eight years and all that the PS3 and Xbox 360 had given us. It was interesting to reminisce but also to give ourselves a reference point for the new consoles. Two articles which stood out were ones we did on game which set the benchmark in their genre and games we described as gateway drugs into the previous console generation. These were effectively the games which set the tone and established a standard for not only what was possible within each specific genre but also what the then new tech was capable of.
We have yet to see such games on the PS4 or Xbox One"
