Hm... this Is a really hard question.
There was sooooo many great games this gen!
I honestly think it impossible for anyone to answer this
brazilianbumpincher  +   1845d ago
more to the point..ive said many times before that
the mods on n4g are very bias and have turned this site into their own fanboy fest pool,why have the legitimate news of KOKATU'S DISGRACEFUL UNDERHAND SABOTAGE been removed from front page of n4g? most articles from othersites as disgusted as the gamers discussing this topic been removed? theres only one i can see

by the way uc2 or lbp or gears 1

edit:pen pooh there you go mate,there was also another article but its been removed,and there was nothing wrong with it,it just showed gamers facts about kotaku

Do you have a link to the Kataku article?
Pen Pooh  +   1845d ago
Cheers mate.
Conloles  +   1845d ago
Starcraft 2
mikeslemonade  +   1845d ago
I played all of those nominees and Uncharted 2 gets about a full point rating above all those games. Uncharted 2 is the only game this generation so far that deserves a 10. I make a point to not give a 10, but for once the game deserves atleast a score between 9.5-10.
TEFL0N_D0N_81  +   1845d ago
This is so stupid. That's it for choices?

What about:

Mass Effect
Batman Arkham Asylum
Gears of War
and a shit load more?

They can't be included? Worst poll I've seen. Also biased against the 360 (not one 360 exclusive there).
Darkstorn  +   1844d ago
Metal Gear Solid 4 is my top game of this gen, followed closely by Bioshock and Uncharted 2.
JoySticksFTW  +   1844d ago
Demon's Souls
MGS4 is one of the greatest gaming experiences I've EVER had

And Uncharted 1 & 2 are amazing

But Demon's Souls is the game that just continues to find it's way back into my PS3. I simply cannot shake the addiction

There are near infinite character builds to explore. And you can build your character to excel at PvE, PvP, both, or just make fun builds... like invading someone's game dual-wielding pick-axes or Meat Cleavers :)

Can't wait for DS2 / DLC. Great foundation was laid with the first game; I'd love to see how the devs improve on it.

Oblivion and Mass Effect deserve mention as well.

Article fails
It fails because this generation isn't even half way through. How can one claim what the best game is, if games are still to be made, for this generation?


Typical article on n4lamers.
FishCake9T4  +   1845d ago
I just thik it means so far this generation either way my 4 are.
Call Of Duty 4
Metal Gear Solid 4
Uncharted 2
Fallout 3
Christopher  +   1845d ago
Is The Witcher this generation? If so, that game. Otherwise... it's a tie between about 6 or so games for various reasons.
Galaxia  +   1845d ago
Best Games this Gen for me...
1. God of War 3.
2. Dead Space 1.
3. Mass Effect 1.

And the Mass Effect series as a whole would be the best new series of the entire gen for me as well.
tokugawa  +   1845d ago
my favourite so far
is just that, and in no way translates into the best for everyone!

for me..

bad company 2 by a land-slide

single player
now this is difficult, coz mass effect 1 and 2, uncharted2, assassins creed2, gears1 and dragon age have been superb games..

but another thing to remember is....this gen aint finished yet
gamerzBEreal17  +   1844d ago
I know i will get some dissagrees but the real contenders are
Metal gear solid4
Gears of war
call of duty4
Mass effect series
(it got a 96 come on guys its a good series/game) best games this gen GOW3 and others are great but my top 5 are these
Pen Pooh  +   1845d ago
Two PS3 and Wii exclusives. Zero Xbox 360. Interesting...
Darrius Cole  +   1845d ago
All wrong. The best game this generation is Metal Gear Solid 4.

2nd is Uncharted 2

God_Of_Epicness  +   1845d ago
I AGREE! MGS4 and Uncharted 2 were the best and without MGS4 in the list, well, let me put it this way. It's a not so....not very....BAD list! Yeap, you got that right! It becomes a bad list!

BTW, where is Mass Effect 2?

Give credit when credit is due people. GTAIV? I mean really??????????? Okay. FINE

JonnyBigBoss  +   1845d ago
Agreed. Both are legendary in my book but MGS4 consumed me for months.
big_silky  +   1845d ago
The Mass Effect series, including part 3 which will no doubt be mind blowing.

Personally I think the list given reads like a laundry list of the most overrated titles this gen.
A change in the wind  +   1845d ago
Either MGS4 or Uncharted 2. They both completely eclipse anything else in consideration by a mile. Next up: The Last Guardian.
Kingdom Come  +   1845d ago
No-one can decide an Overall Best Game both Generation...
They can only give THEIR opinion on the best game of the generation, the argument will play out for years but at the end of the day, it's personal preference...
Mine would be either Gears of War 1 or 2, many will agree, many will disagree, it makes no difference to the person of whims choice it is...
grumpysmurf  +   1845d ago
If every gamer alive answered the poll, we would have a definitive answer (Of course, you would need to broaden the range to include all games released thus far -- the one with the most votes wins).
table  +   1845d ago
Kingdom Come is right, even if a game gets the most votes it doesn't make it the best. That is a fallacy of majority belief.

Mine would be between MGS4, Uncharted 2 and Mass Effect 2. Regardless of preference I think we can all agree that there have been some amazing games this gen on all consoles.
RockmanII7  +   1845d ago
I very strongly disagree with the options. I think for a poll like this to work well it needs at least 15 slots, preferably 20.
Pandamobile  +   1845d ago
Where's the "None of the Above" option?
bnaked  +   1845d ago
Unchartd 2 or MGS4.
#9 (Edited 1845d ago ) | Agree(4) | Disagree(2) | Report | Reply
TheFreak  +   1845d ago
There is just too many. Here are my favorite games this gen.

MGS4 gets the top stop I think

BeaArthur  +   1845d ago
I don't see how you can have 1 definitive answer when there have been so many great games.
divideby0  +   1845d ago
think of it as if you can have only one game to play which would you choose.
so many are just coping out vs making a decision
BeaArthur  +   1845d ago
Probably Halo 3 just because it's supported so well. There are always new maps to try thanks to the Forge and tons of game modes as well. I typically get bored with every game at some point but Bungie keeps it fresh enough where if I could only pay 1, it would have to be Halo 3. Although that doesn't mean it's the best game of this generation.
divideby0  +   1845d ago
to many.... UC2, SMG2, MGS and ME in that order
Stealth20k  +   1845d ago
its sad there havent been more console gta games

5 on the ps2 vs 1 on the ps3

As far as "best" game of this generation I would have to say Heavy Rain so far.

As far as my "favorite" game this generation it would have to be Fallout 3 so far.

"Most overated" game of this generation would have to be Grand Theft Auto IV or Call of Duty 4 so far.

Roper316  +   1845d ago
For me without any question or doubt and by a landslide margin the best game I have played is Valkyria Chronicles
gillri  +   1845d ago
played every single potential candidate for this, MGS4, LBP, Halo 3, UC2, GOW3, SMG2, RDR, MGS :Peace Walker, AC2, Batman AA, Fallout 3 etc

but Mass Effect 2 is the winner for me
Greek God  +   1845d ago
for me it was God of War III
then Mgs4, Uncharted2, InFamous

I can't believe people get paid to create polls like this...then only include 8 games....8 f-ing games---this gaming generation is now 6 years old and only 8 game...shinanigans...and its purely subjective so doesnt matter..
CraigUK  +   1845d ago
Twilight Princess??
Twilight princess is a Gamecube game it shouldnt even be there, ontop of that it wasnt even a good zelda game. let alone game of the generation.
tunaks1  +   1844d ago
TP>greater then the majority of games listed
csimpson  +   1844d ago
It also came out on Wii y'know.
belal  +   1845d ago
for me
MGS4 then Uncharted 2 as second and gow3 as third and killzone as 4th and dead space as fifth.
ATLGAMER  +   1845d ago
Uncharted 2
then MGS4,GOW3,Mass Effect 1
x5exotic  +   1845d ago
GoW3 and mgs4 then ME1 theeeeeeeeeeeen UC2
telekineticmantis  +   1845d ago
It's Metal Gear Solid 4
No need to bicker about this. The experience is unmatched.
SpinalRemains138  +   1845d ago
AC series for me.

Senden  +   1845d ago
Halo reach.. or at least could be if Forge is as good as it looks and the community pick it up.. imo the most innovative thing of this gen.
x5exotic  +   1845d ago
MGS4/GOW3/ME2 either one

UC2,Heavy rain can never be that good ....sorry
Thrillhouse  +   1845d ago
My favourite of this generation is probably Bioshock.
#26 (Edited 1845d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
Whackedorange  +   1845d ago
My personal best this generation so far is Forza Motorsport #3, but there is loads of other interesting games out there so kind of unfair to pick just one, other titles that i place high in regard is SMG 1, Uncharted 1, Ratchet & Clank, Gears Of War, God Of War, Lost Odyssey, Tales Of Vesperia, Demon Souls.

But the best is yet to come and for now it have a scheduled November release PD`s GT 5

Funny that people hit disagree or agree when this is just a personal view and nothing else but ooops i forgot its N4g so if your view is not like theirs then they hit disagree, silly users

actually in real life thats exactly what it means
when u dont agree with some1(in other wors have a different opinion)
then logically you DISAGREE
that button expresses the different opinion :)

you fail in many aspects
but no worries i didnt click anything....but feel free to disagree if u find my logic flawed ^^
ps2ftw  +   1845d ago
you know it is possible to agree or disagree with an opinion.
it's actually pretty much the whole point!
anyway i like your list but i can't believe you like forza, or at least as much as to say game of this gen.
Whackedorange  +   1845d ago
I am a racing sim fanatic so naturally Forza is the best there is but like i said in the orginal post is that would most likely change when GT 5 is out
GusBricker  +   1845d ago
It's Mass Effect 2...
You get to have sex with Tali, FTMFW!
Tex117  +   1845d ago
Mine was Demon's Souls. No other gamed consumed me more than that one.
joypads  +   1845d ago
UNCHARTED 2 is hands down the best action/adventure game this generation.

KILLZONE 2 is hands down the best console fps game this generation (until KZ3).

MOTORSTORM 1&2 hands down the best off road racing games EVER MADE.

PS3 is hands down the best console EVER MADE.
GusBricker  +   1845d ago
JOYPADS is the greatest Sony fanboy EVER MADE.
