Is there any game released yet this generation that might qualify as an "instant classic" in your eyes? Or are we still waiting on that special title?

Not really,Microsoft,Nintendo and Sony still haven't released their major titles yet.

Sunset overdrive, bayonetta 2, SM3DW, bloodborne, splatoon, killer instinct...

All classics. Sometimes major game and classic aren't synonymous

But I do agree with those that say this gen is comparatively lacking to those before it in terms of classics in this timeframe.

only Splatoon and Bloodborne ..ok maybe and Bayo 2

My only console is a PS4 so I can't comment on Xbox or Wii games but yeah, Bloodborne is a classic in my opinion. I love the way the story begins to unfold later in the game and completely changes the way you view everything (introducing the Lovecraft themes), and the combat and level design is close to perfect. Brilliant game.

I got a PC copy of Titanfall and would add that to the list as well, definitely a classic in the multiplayer genre and it's crazy to see just how much it's influenced the industry already. It's almost as much of a gamechanger as the original Modern Warfare was.

I'd rank Bloodborne and Titanfall as the most fun singleplayer/multiplayer games I've played in a really long time. They're definitely classics.

Not gonna hate on Titanfall since i haven't ever played it, but it can't be much of a classic when the servers are off. I was thinking of games that people are going to be talking about in 10 years, that collector's will be wanting to add to their collection.

I'd define a "classic" by a game I'd still recommend even in 5 years. This generation that might be Bloodborne, Rocket League and maybe The Witcher 3 as well. I think that this year could add MGS5, Fallout 4, Persona 5 and Battlefront to that list but we'll see :)

Forza Horizon 2

Great games that could be regarded as classics.

For console exclusives I say Bloodborne and Ori come closest currently.

MasterCornholio1206d ago

And as for multiplats I would say The Witcher 3.

Those are all great games in my opinion.

starchild1206d ago

How silly. Your comment makes it sound like only first party exclusives can be exceptional.

The Witcher 3 is probably the best game I've ever played and is definitely going to go down as a classic in my book.


Mario 3d world. Smash Bros and Mario Kart. Resogun, Titanfall, are close IMHO.


nX you going to just laugh and disagree. Or put your big boy pants on and put up your list?

schlanz1205d ago

Every canon Mario game, Smash Bros and Mario Kart are classics in my book. Definitely no exception with the Wii U entries.

Sureshot1206d ago

Arkham knight
Ori and the Blind Forest
Forza Horizon 2
Mortal Kombat X

Were only a couple years into this gen but so far games that I cant stop playing are:

Cities Skylines (PC games released in the last couple years should count as part of this gen too)
Rocket League
Forza Horizon 2.

Dont have a PS4 yet so I have not played exclusives like Bloodbourne, Driveclub and more. Still need to get Witcher 3 and MGS 5 and Fallout 4 will most likely be classics as well.
