Bag of Games takes a look at the ten best games of this console generation.
"Our ten favourite games of this generation" would be a more accurate title.
It goes without saying that any "best" list is going to be subjective though.
I definately agree on that. But when I read "Bag of Games takes a look at the ten best games of this console generation", I can't help thinking "Well...that's YOUR opinion" lol. Anyway, you're right.
My top 10 in no order 1. Uncharted 2. Bioshock 3. Assassins Creed 4. Borderlands 5. Mass Effect 6. Forza 7. Super Mario Galaxy 8. Demon Souls (and Dark Souls) 9. Batman 10. NHL
10. Uncharted 2 9. Call Of Duty 4 8. Halo 3 7. Bioshock 6. Fallout 3 5. Mass Effect 2 4. Batman Arkham City 3. The Walking Dead 2. Red Dead Redemption 1. Grand Theft Auto IV Honorable mentions, Max Payne 3, Gear of war 2, Infamous 2, Portal 2,Battlefield 3 (Multiplayer), Assassins Creed 2, Alan Wake, Dead Space.
No love for MGS4? Maaaan... Top 10 for me so far would be like Demon's Souls or MGS4 for the top spot, followed by Uncharted 1, Mass Effect 1, Gears 1, Infamous 1, Oblivion, Fallout 3, Burnout Paradise, and Dragon Age Origins, in no particular order. MGS4 was a love letter to MGS fans, with uncompromising fan service. Demon's Souls was a love letter to the hardcore gamer, with uncompromising (yet fair!!) challenge and difficulty. I think the "uncompromising" factor needs to be looked at by more devs. Don't try to COD-ize everything to appeal to the mass market. Just make the game you want to make. Not everyone is going to understand your vision, but being different will give it a chance to stand out from all of the other cookie-cutter crap. After all, Haters gonna hate anyways (da cut scenez!! da difikulty!!). You might as well show them your idea of fun.
@JoySticksFTW Demon's Souls and MGS4 would definitely be worthy of the list as well. It also bugs me that Red Dead Redemption didn't quite make the cut. Ultimately, boiling it down to just 10 is really hard.
1. GTA San Andreas (not sure which gen, but the best) 2. Assassin Creed 3. Bioshock 4. Uncharted 1 (Because it layed the footsteps for the next 2 games.) 5. Red Dead Redemption + many more.
Gah! How'd I forget Red Dead?! Jeez, I've been gaming since Atari 2600 and this gen was truly something special. I don't think you really can go wrong with a top 10 list. Might need a top 25! And Rob_P, your site gets a rate up for not putting one game per page for ten pages. Can't stand that junk. Thanks! :D
Ni No Kuni.. And The Last of US might be on the next list just before next gen.
Great list! The PS3 dominated the list with three of top the ten games being PS3 exclusives, one was a Wii exclusive, and the remaining six games were multi plats.
Uncharted 2 should be on Top 3 !
I think you mean 2 PS3 exclusives. He put Dark Souls not Demons Souls.
How can someone disagree with you? Are they retarded?
Oblivion was better than Skyrim in all but graphics, IMO.
Disagree. Having to go to Oblivion so many damn times got boring and tedious.
You're only forced to go to Oblivion three times. The Oblivion gate at Kvatch, the one near Bruma that you enter with Captain Burd, and the Great Gate north of Bruma. Every other gate can be avoided.
Yeah, well, I'm a completionist. Gotta finish everything.
I loved Obligations Oblivion but Skyrim is better in every way. Skyrim feels so much more organic. I honestly can't think of a single area where Oblivion is better.
I prefer Skyrim over Oblivion cause I didn't like how everything leveled up with you. (Enemies, weapons, etc) Skyrim gave a bit more room with some enemies being near impossible while others only took one slash. Same goes for weapons where you could find absolute treasures in Skyrim but Oblivion just gave you whatever was needed to fight the next guy coming at you.
Skyrim is my #1. I have over 300 hours into the Xbox version and purchased all the DLC. Recently switched to PC gaming, bought Skyrim and all the DLC again and close to 100 hours. The vast amount of mods for Skyrim and the quality of work put into them is amazing. Really makes the game perform better, and feel like a completely new experience.
The Witcher 2? Xenoblade? Zelda SS? 2 hours Journey better than this three games? LOL.
Yep. It is. In fact, for me, it's better than all the other games on their list.
You underestimate the appeal of Journey. I wouldn't knock someone who said it was their best game of all time. I find it to be an amazing experience.
Journey nice and beautiful music, but not better GAME than Witcher 2, Zelda, Xeno. Well, i think Limbo better arcade game than Journey. -Subjective-
I love how The Walking Dead beats out Bioshock and Uncharted 2. Who's brilliant idea was that? I tried The Walking Dead and deleted it 3 hours in because i couldn't play it without falling asleep. That's my subjective experience.
The Walking Dead is vastly overrated in my opinion. I heard so much about it and how great it was, when it went on sale over the Christmas holidays I picked it up for ten bucks. It's not really a game at all, it's an exercise in storytelling where the player is being dragged along for the ride. Bioware tells a brilliant story with the Mass Effect series. If you want dialog trees, play that series for an idea of how to do it brilliantly. By comparison, the Walking Dead felt stiff and exceedingly repetitive. How it won game of the year from certain publications is beyond me. I wouldn't say it wasn't worth playing, but again, I payed ten bucks. For that price it was worth it. But if I had payed even twenty dollars for the game, I would have been very upset with my purchase. It doesn't belong on a list of games of this generation.
I think Beethovens third sympathy is overrated. This opinion is worthless.
Bought The Walking dead (with all the chapters) for 15$, was worth. I also enjoy the show and graphic novels so, I thought the story was great. not better than Bioshock, but to each is their own.
