Favourite game of this past gen?

72 posts in this topic

As we near the end of this console generation, we (as gamers) can look back on a fantastic 6/7 years of gaming this past-gen. From multi-platform greats like Bioshock, RDR, Skyrim (for some), the Arkham Series, etc. to PS exclusives like Uncharted, Infamous, Heavy Rain and TLOU (just to name a few), the Microsoft powerhouse of Halo and the fantastic Super Mario Galaxy series, this has been a great time to be a gamer.

 

My question is; what is your favourite/favorite (I'm an Aussie, favourite is spelt properly where I come from) game from this past gen?

 

Obviously not restricted to the ones I've listed above; they're just some major ones that readily come to mind.

 

I'd have to go with Bioshock as my stand-out; the atmosphere, story-telling and combat really did it for me. The Last of Us also stands out as the pinnacle of story-telling to me. But then there's so many others...

My absolute favourite game from this past gen is without question Super Mario Galaxy. Game that introduced me to this gen aside, I personally think the level design is the best in any Mario game as one of the reasons I love it.

 

As for PS3 exclusives, LittleBigPlanet 2, no doubt (I still shiver at the creativity that the game offers) and as for multiplatforms, Saints Row 2 is my absolute favourite, because even now, it's just so much fun.

 

Of course, there are plenty of others...

That is a really tough question to answer given how many times I was blown away by games that came out this gen

 

But I would have to give my favorite game of this gen award to Metal Gear Solid 4

 

honorable mentions: TLOU, RDR, Bioshock

Mine will be GTA V. Yes I know the game is not out yet, but even so. Besides WWE 2K14, this will be the last title I purchase this gen in gaming. After those two titles, it's all about the PlayStation 4.

I don't think it's possible for me to name just one game...

 

1) Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

This game is my Goty of 2013 so far. It's one of the hypest games i've played this year. Its also got a incredible soundtrack.

 

2) Dark Souls.

Without a doubt this is definitely one of my favourite games this gen. It's a shame that some people will miss out on this game because of the 'over hyped difficulty'

 

3) No More Heroes 2.

Another awesome game from the crazy mind of Suda 51. I completed this game again today for the 10th time, it's one of the few games this gen that i've done that with.

 

Honourable mentions 

Xenoblade chronicles 

Super Mario galaxy

Halo 3

Metal Gear solid 4

The Witcher 2

Lost odyssey

Bioshock really set the standards back in 2007, then The Last of Us showed us how powerful this generation can really be.

 

My personal favorite would be Portal 2, but the best game is definitely The Last of Us.

Mass Effect 2 was, hands down, the single greatest gaming experience I ever had. I literally played it for six months straight, creating a dozen Commander Shepards to play as. I heard about it while watching a video on YouTube about another BioWare game, Jade Empire. I liked that game so I looked into ME2, saw there was a demo in the PS Store, played and loved the demo, so when there was a price drop, I bought it.

 

An honorable mention goes to Transformers: War for Cybertron. It was the first game I ever played online and I met most of my online friends from it.

Such a difficult question!! Batman Arkham: City was truly amazing, especially the voice acting done by Mark Hamill and writing by Paul Dini. But, Naughty Dog did produced quite the spectacular graphic presentation in a little game titled Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

 

Gah!! So hard to choose!!

 

I guess if both games were falling off a cliff, I'd dive with them because i cannot choose. They were both just so perfect. I guess Batman Arkham: City would beat it out by less than the thickness of a strand of hair.

BioShock: It had the best story of any game this gen in my opinion, followed by Infinite.

Modnation Racers: This was just a fun racing game, with a very cool character creation system.

Borderlands 2: My favorite fps game this gen.

Little Big Planet 2: Took creativity to a whole new level.

Batman: Arkham series: Set the standard for all superhero games.

Dead Island: Showed what zombie games can be, looking forward to them in next gen.

Those are probably my favorite games from this gen, can't think of any others right now.

If you send me to a forgotten island in the middle of nowhere and I can only take 1 game... that would be Skyrim for me.

This generation I can easily name a few I have played nonstop since release.

 

Skyrim, Dragon Age: Origins, Terraria, Metal Gear Solid 4, Dragon's Dogma, Kingdoms of Amalur, all the Bioshock games, the Batman games.

Even though I only got to play in the last beta phase, I'd have to say Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I haven't played the original XIV but I have heard how bad it was; also, I didn't have any money to afford it.

 

Second would definitely be Borderlands 2. I don't know why, but I love it. I just do.
