This would be a very difficult list to make for me. This generation was fantastic. Games that marked the new generation for me was wii sports and gears of war. I would like to see some kind of poll so we could do a collective list, everyone making their own lists is too much to read.


I will see what I can do

Brawl to me just felt like a new coat of paint than a full sequel,and most of the new characters were shit.

 

Also forgot to add Deadly Premonition to my list,which am surprised hasn't been mentioned yet.

I can't narrow it down to 10 games, but I will tell you an advancement in gaming that made me happy and wish more devs would do it. Being able to unlock MP weapons/abilities/loadouts while playing through single player - Killzone Mercenary. Sometimes the beginning weapons are just shitty in shooters and it'd be nice to play through the campaign and unlock your favorites in MP for a better chance for beginners

    CAGiversary!

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 30 December 2013 - 12:35 AM

the absolute top of the list:

 

1.  Mass Effect:  I have never been so immersed by a video game world before.  The settings, the characters, the dialogue, everything is great.  Yes some of the gameplay is rough but its a beautiful game and always brings a smile to my face.  And the ending missions are among the best in gaming history IMO.

 

2.  Skyrim:  Another deeply immersing game.  I have over 200 hours into it and still have some side quests and DLC to finish up.  Gorgeous graphics and a limitless amount of things to do.

 

3.  Mass Effect 2:  Refined many things from the first and improved the gameplay side. Hooks you in the first 10 minutes of the game. Add in the variable ending choices and structure and it is one of the best.

 

4.  Fallout New Vegas:  A great amount of exploration, dialogue content, and a unique setting that I have found makes a really enjoyable game.  I got it for $10 new (my first ever CAG deal) which makes it even better.

 

5.  Grand Theft Auto V:  While the online aspect fell short of Rockstar's hopes, the single-player experience is still top-notch for exploration and humor.  Plus the three character approach is different and works well.

 

Honorable mentions....

 

Halo 3 and Halo 4 (Reach fell a little flat for me)

Red Dead Redemption (would be higher on the list but Mexico was far too dreadfully long)

Uncharted 3 (first two are in my backlog as I'm new to PS3 gaming but I really liked U3)

Grand Theft Auto IV (the game that initially got me to get a 360)

Super Mario Galaxy (very good Wii experience)

Super Smash Bros Brawl (not as good as Melee but still many good sessions with friends)

Assassins Creed 2 (loved the setting)

Mass Effect 3 (ending issues aside this was still a solid game)

Portal 2

Wii Sports

Wii Sports Resort

Arkham Asylum 

Arkham City

Far Cry 3 

Lego Star Wars

Lego Pirates

Lego Marvel

    Two Best Friends Forever

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 11 January 2014 - 11:50 PM

You know what? I'm going to try to narrow it down as far as possible. these are in no particular order

 

Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii)

 

After such a long wait for a proper Donkey Kong game, Retro hit it out of the park by making not only a damn good platformer, but a challenging throwback to the SNES days. I just started playing it a couple days ago and I can hardly put it down. PS3... PS4... You guys are gonna have to wait for some loving until DKCR is finished

 

Killzone Mercenary (Playstation Vita)

 

Maybe not the best shooter on the market, but hands down the best the Vita has to offer. The controls are smooth and responsive - especially for a handheld title. The multiplayer made great strides by making it possible to have any and all unlocks carry over from the campaign to the online multiplayer. Also not a groundbreaking advancement in gaming, but something I wish more developers would adopt

 

Borderlands 1/2 (Playstation 3, Xbox 360)

 

A fun colorful lootathon that's equally as enjoying playing either by yourself or with 3 friends. With a bijillion different weapon combinations, frantic action, great controls, and tons of DLC for both games, Gearbox found a way to rejuvenate the FPS genre right when it was getting to be way too stale

 

Gears of War series (Xbox 360)

 

A chainsaw on the end of a gun... Need I say more?

 

Batman Arkham series (Playstation 3, Xbox 360)

 

Right when I had given up hope on there being any good Superhero games EVER, Batman Arkham Asylum showed up and blew me away. Each installment (IMO) has just gotten better and better with new implementations and better visuals. All we need now is for Rocksteady to take all of the series' greatness and channel it into a Batman Beyond game

 

Tomb Raider (Playstation 3, Xbox 360)

 

I never played a Tomb Raider game before the 2013 reboot, so naturally I went in sceptical about all the high praise it was getting at first. Without much of a tutorial and being thrown headfirst into the action, I was almost immediately hooked. Aside from bland characters and piss-poor multiplayer, Tomb Raider is not only one of the best games of 2013, but also one of the best games to get on a last-gen console

 

The Last of Us (Playstation 3)

 

I didn't follow a single story regarding this game before launch. I kept hearing people talk about how sweet it looked on just about every gaming forum I visited, but didn't pay it much attention. Once it was released and the reviews started popping up, I had to see what all the hype was about. Needless to say, I didn't regret dropping those $60 for even a single second. Sometimes things are popular for a good reason - because THEY'RE GOOD

 

God of War 3 (Playstation 3)

 

After the ball slap God of War 2 left us with before it walked out of the room, I was kind of pissed at the series for pulling a Halo 2 on us. Once march 2010 rolled around and it was time to start cutting the heads and limbs off the best Greek mythology had to offer, it was clear Santa Monica Studios was hard at work the past 4 years crafting one of the most visually pleasing and fun games video games had ever seen. It's a shame the series started plummeting in quality after GoW3, but this game can still be held up as one of Playstation's finest

Posting this from my phone, I'll go back and revise it tomorrow.

1. Halo 3

Alan Wake
Alice: Madness Returns
Assassins Creed Series, namely ACII
Batman: Arkham City
Bioshock: Infinite
Castle Crashers
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
Grand Theft Auto V
Mass Effect Series, namely Mass Effect 2
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
Peggle
Red Dead Redemption
Skyrim

Tomb Raider
Uncharted Series, namely Uncharted 2

Just a note, some of these games are by no means the the greatest games of all time. Just the games that always come to mind whenever I think about my favorite games of the past generation

Completed Games:

All the typical choices, Last of Us, Mass Effect,  etc etc....

 

But there are a few that caught me off guard:

 

Nier - Dat ending D :(

Deadly Premonition - I saw Twin Peaks for the first time a few months before playing this. That could've been a factor.

Rayman Legends/Orgins - Probably the best and most innovated 2D platformer since the 16 bit era.

Xenoblade Chronicle - Played the hell out of this game. My wife and kid were in Japan for a few weeks while I had this so I had a ton of time to kill on this. I don't think I'll ever play an RPG to completion like I did this one again.

Endless Ocean - Such a peaceful game. I really want to see more games like this.

Tenchu Z - We need a sequel. Make it happen From Software

A top 10 list is pretty much impossible to make because of how many phenomenal games came out this gen. I guess I'll start with a few and then update the list when I get more time on my hands.

 

Portal 2

 

I didn't buy this game when it first came out or the first one but I googled the story for the first one before playing this game and man is this game something else. It is literally the only puzzle game I have ever enjoyed and I have never played anything like it ever before.  It's fun, addicting and the story in it is one of the best in gaming. This game only has 3-4 main character and all of them manage to be better and more interesting than most characters in other games. It has some of the best villains, great plot twist and a superb beginning and ending. The voice acting is top notch and the coop is one of the best of this generation. My only gripe with this game is that it's too short.

Good topic, OP. 

 

I'm going with:

 

1.  Mass Effect 3

2.  Mass Effect 2

3.  Mass Effect

4.  Alan Wake

5.  Fable 2

6.  Bioshock Infinite

7.  Batman Arkham Asylum

8.  Dragon Age 2

9.  Lost Odyssey

10. Fable 3

 

I know I'd have a lot of people disagreeing with me on a lot of those, and the bottom 5 could really go in any order.  But, I feel good about that list.  Those are all games that I love.  Runners up include Dragon Age Origins, Portal 2, Costume Quest and maybe even Bastion.  Obviously, I'm a big Xbox 360 guy and only play console games on that platform.  

 

And, without question, this has been the best generation for gaming ever.  Sure, the 16-bit era had some classics, but this one had legends.  Stuff we'll be talking about for decades.
