The Top 10 Most Enjoyable Games of this Generation

The guys at Transmissions from the Void have each compiled a list of their most enjoyable games of this generation for both the PS3 and Xbox 360.

"As there haven't been many new PS3 releases that have taken my fancy over the last month or so I recently purchased a clutch of second hand games. Among the titles I bought were Mirrors Edge , Wolfenstein and Kane & Lynch. All 3 of these titles, while not blowing the critics away, I really enjoyed. This got me thinking about the titles that I've enjoyed playing the most on the PS3 regardless of whether they were critically lauded or not." (PS3, Xbox 360)

Not trying to be a dick, but I'm sick of seeing the same Uncharted 2 comments on every article. There is more enjoyable games than just U2. Personally I've had more fun with LBP, MGO, K2, etc.

in your opinion. you are sick of peoples opinions, yet you express yours?

I agree though, its not MY most enjoyable game this gen either. So far its been Dead Space and LBP =)

purely from a game design and polish point of view though? U2 is up there at the top for sure.

Uncharted 2 is great..but most enjoyable? Hell no!

When it comes to QUALITY, yeah UC2 wins.

but when it comes to most enjoyable, UC2 is faaaaar away

EDIT: Dont get me wrong though! UC2 is one of my favorite games.

(LOL @ disagrees. im not trolling.)

Imo, LBP was the most enjoyable game I've played.
So fun if you play multiplayer.

So far, I've only finished kz 2, gta4, infamous, batman arkham asylum, oblivion, resistance 2.

out of those games, the ones I enjoyed the most were oblivion and definitely infamous.

I haven't finished gow collection(since I never played them on ps2), gow3, uncharted2, mod nation racers, metal gear solid 4(though I did see my bro playing through it to the end), mw2 and ufc 2010 so can't say anything about those games.


I've finished fable 2, mass effect 1 and 2, portal, episodes of liberty city.

my favorite of course was mass effect 1. liked 2 but 1 was much better in terms of story. can't wait till mass effect 3!

Have not finished bioshock 1 and 2, bayonetta, darksiders, dantes inferno, sacred 2 fallen angel, risen, sniper ghost warrior, soul calibur 4, sf 4, burnout paradise, infinite undiscovery, just cause 2, singularity, battle field 2 bad company, halflife 1 and 2, borderlands and ninety nine nights 2.

haven't even started gears 2 campaign. hated gears 1 and wont even get into 2. game fcking sucked.

too many damn games. thanks team xecuter :).

Man what you been doing last 4 years not to of finished any of those games.
mastiffchild  +   2009d ago
U2 is a great game and though people are sick of hearing that the reasoon it's so good is that it's quality translates just as well to enjoyment of the title. Great stuff.

Thatsaid i've enjoyed other games even more:MGS4 is, to me, still the best gaming experience of this generation and never disappoints me. Warhawk has given me most hours of on line gaming enjoyment and even now is a uniquely competitive and varied game for PSN users.-under rated and over performing in almost every way!

360 wise Gears2(played the first on PC as my 360 was "having a break" at the time)is a fantasicly fun romp only marred by, so bad it's funny, ending with it's one shot HoD death knell amazing me with it's crapness first time out! Also had it had dedicated servers it's online would have been great rather than patchy(sometimes great sometimes broken)from the get go. Still a great game that shines despite very obvious flaws which just shows how strong the core of it really is. Also, bg up to the first Crackdown which, like many, I bought for it's fringe benefits! thing is it was daft fun and a million times more well put together than it's "sequel" and to anyone not having played either I suggest playing the demo for the sequel and buying the better first game for a fiver-winner! Still amazes me they used the same exact place.

Multis-I REALLY liked The Darkness as a surprise game and think DS was much better than RE5 and also,on PC, L4D1 and 2 and mods are amazingly good games even if I felt more ripped off by the 360 version of the first than at any other time this generation. Seriously, £40 for a game so inferior to the PC version I bought on Steam for £20? Inferior in every way and Valve should do better for 360 gamers-a bit of a scandal in my book. If that's the level of support PAS3 owners can now expect i'd advise any fanboys waving Valve/PS3 flags to start worrying and stop gloating. Most upsetting part? No mods for 360 when UT3 allowed them on PS3. no reason for it and it's mainly what makes it so very great on PC.

Anyway, tons of enjoyable smaller releases and disc based games but those would be my main choices off the top of me bonce.

Good shout...we have been spoilt in the last year or so with regards to great games!
Darkstorn  +   2010d ago
Enjoyability is entirely relative. For me, it's gotta be Motorstorm or Uncharted. Maybe God of War III. Mind you, I don't think that any of those games are the best experiences this gen has to offer, but they are certainly the most enjoyable.
DelbertGrady  +   2009d ago
I've had the most fun while playing Battlefield: BC 2 with a squad of friends.
The Meerkat  +   2009d ago
Trails HD is number one on my list.
Raendom  +   2009d ago
Left 4 Dead IMO! Hella fun game.
DuneBuggy  +   2009d ago
Yeah I'd say that L4D 1&2 are easily my favorite online/multiplayer games this gen.
Played the "gib fest" mutation Friday and Saturday night.
M60s with unlimited ammo = one happy DuneBuggy!

Man, I STILL haven't bought it since being ripped twice trying to import! i'll have to check what the UK version contains as the US spec looked really cool at one time. Got to get back on that horse-even if it is known to buck. Violently!
albel_nox  +   2009d ago
Final Fantasy 13 is by far the most enjoyable game I've played this generation. Split Second and Dirt 2 are also worth a mention.
fucadastates  +   2009d ago
demons souls and valkyria chronicles for me.
EVO-OM3GA  +   2009d ago

Fat Princess
Killzone 2
Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm

360 List
Halo Wars (im addicted, say no more its my list)
Gears of War
Lost Odyssey
Crack Down 1&2
Mass Effect 1&2
mastiffchild  +   2009d ago
Sheesh, everyoe's ,list reminds me of another I forgot! GOW, LBP,inFAMOUS, VC and Folklore culd be on my PS3 list and for the Wii MP3(and trilogy), SMG1 and 2, TP and NMH and Z&W.

For 360 and PC(played ME on both) I neglected the ME pair which I liked a LOT and I was the person who liked IU and hated LO! Crackdown2 was just a rip off and should have been, it would have been brilliant as it too, premium £25 DLC for the first game. Not a sequel at all in my eyes.

I should really also say that despite current accepted thinking I still think GTA4 is the best in the series and a VERY enjoyable game in every way.
