If you had a crystal ball and looked far into the future, which games from this generation would get you all teary-eyed? Which will stick and endure?
ಠ_ಠ....Angry Birds? Sadly this generation is not Memorable.
As many amazing games I have played this generation across all three consoles, which I'm grateful for, I don't think any game has ever captivated me like bioshock... That was just an incredible experience
Off the top of my head... I will remember fighting back tears reading the emotionally charged short stories in Lost Odyssey, losing myself in the incredibly unique and immersive city of Rapture in Bioshock, gaping in awe at the technically impressive and masterfully cinematic Uncharted 2, and the feeling of wonder and discovery exploring the sand and snow of Journey. Oh, and I'll remember the zombie apocalypse.
Wow. I agree. I lobed lost Odyssey short stories. My favorite is bioshock, maybe of all time. Fallout 3 was amazing too. My others are uncharted 2, Deus ex: HR, Valkyria Chronicles, Mass Effect 1, killzone 2, little big planet, Batman, dead space 1, and skyrim (though I am having more fun with dragons dogma). For me it's the huge open world of skyrim that will stand in this Gen. Oh, and red dead redemption. But, bioshock, mass effect, fallout 3 and uncharted 2 will be the face. Though, it isn't over and a few may be the Ff12 and GoW2 of last Gen.
Little Big Planet 1/2 Killzone 2/3 MGS4 fallout 3 motorstorm(s) warhawk/starhawk cool games galore!
The setting of Rapture and almost everything about Bioshock is the first thing that jumps out at me. Other than that, wasting god knows how many hours on minecraft, the set pieces in Uncharted (namely number 2, and the snow covered mountain top), the story and characters in the Mass Effect trilogy, the art style of Rayman Origins and being surprised how amazing 2D games can look, playing Gears 1 and seeing the rain level for the first time. Also the music and atmosphere in Heavy Rain, getting my first achievement all those years ago, playing Limbo for the first time, God of War 3's scale and boss fights, the atmosphere and use of sound in Dead Space, getting out of the sewers for the first time in Oblivion, the radio stations in Fallout 3...far too many good ones to choose from.
