Your Favourite Games of this Generation

Post by Great Leader Sprucenuce on Tue Aug 13, 2013 12:21 am

With only really GTA V left as the last big game of this generation i thought it would be a good time to discuss our favourite games of this generation.

Red Dead Redemption
Mass Effect 2
Bioshock
Assassins Creed 2
Witcher 2
Gears of War 2
Gears of War 3
Batman Arkham Asylum
Batman Arkham City
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

I will eventually put all these games into an order and explain why i enjoyed them so much but for now this is my list of 10.

I enjoyed many more like GTA 4, Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, Borderlands 2, Mafia 2, Alan Wake etc etc.

I also tried as hard as possible to avoid any Sports or Multiplayer FPS where possible which is why you don't see the likes of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, CoD 4, MW2, Fifa 11/12 etc etc.

Also in the midst of playing Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider atm. Once i complete those, before i buy a PS4 i plan to finish of Last Of Us, MGS4, GOW 3, Infamous 1 and 2, Uncharted trilogy among other PS3 games i have bought but not completed or hardly touched yet. Laughing

So the list may grow larger, so expect either an updated an OP or a seperate post with much greater detail and explanation behind my choices.

Avoiding the games you mentioned like Cod and FIFA, here's a list in no order whatsoever



Resident evil 6
Uncharted 1,2 & 3
God Of War 3
Heavy Rain
Heavenly Sword
TLOU


There's a pretty strict list
Which i'm happy with. Until I remember 1 or 2 games i'm most likely forgetting.

I've played hundreds of games this gen..but gun to my head, my top 10;

Dark Souls
Bioshock Infinite
Journey
Red Dead Redemption ( really hoping for a next gen installment)
Uncharted 2 ( just finished this recently, absolutely incredible :bow:)
Assassins Creed 2
Fallout 3
TES Oblivion (I think Skyrim's world is better, but when I first played Oblivion I thought it was epic as fuark, dem memories)
Mirrors Edge
Prince of Persia 2008

I have Uncharted 3, The Last of Us and Demons Souls to play before GTA 5 and wrapping up this gen. I feel like at least three of those will make my top 10.


Also, that reminds me..I really need to start Bioshock 1 and 2. Picked up the double boxset the other day.

I was about to say, there seems to be a real lack of Skyrim here.

For me:
Red Dead Redemption
Skyrim
GTA San Andreas
Borderlands
Witcher 2
+ most sports and racing games.

You can include sports and MP FPS if you like i just chose not to, i know some people only play those types of games so it would be unfair to enforce a thread rule (Laughing) that you can't choose them.

FYI i don't like Skyrim, Obvlivion or Fallout before anyone starts Razz

Personally I wouldn't bother adding sports games

They're completely different for me, and there are yearly releases.

Wouldn't bother adding the online FPS type games, because there is always a new COD and the thread could end up being a COD for COD or COD/BF comparison.

The Concept was fun, the actual gameplay got boring after a few hours.

Lmfao rofl

Yeah the things I didn't like about AC 2 (Not saying they were all bad choices, it's the way they wanted the game to be. But personally I didn't like)


Having to go to a viewpoint to update your mini-map, pisses me off

Combat. Meh

The fact you can jump 250 ft into a small stack of hay on a cart and the cart's fine, you're fine and it supposedly hides you from enemies

Because it's not in 'real time' it skips parts and as a result I couldn't really get connected to the characters. Your entire family get hanged infront of you and you just don't care Laughing

Imagine just 1 main character from big games dying. It has a massive fall-out.

Because you only really see a couple of 'interiors' and there's nothing to do outside of the norm, it's just you constantly booting around buildings. Doesn't appeal to me.


Just didn't like it that much, I got bored easily. And I don't have a massively short attention span, I can suffer if I need to.

Its fair Tom, i get ya.

I could never get into Fallout or Skyrim either, i tried believe me but i just couldn't do it.

Just one of those things i suppose.

I think i prefer more story driven RPGs than exploring ones with massive world anyway.

Would explain why Mass Effect 1 and 2 were my favourite RPGs by a mile this generation until i played Witcher 2.

Yeah I understand why people don't like them. Love 'em myself. And can't wait to get a hold of Elder scrolls online on ps4 with a few mates.


I never played fallout 3 and the other one. (New Vegas I think)

I'd probably enjoy them, but I just never got around to buying them. And even though the game itsself is apparantly great, I hate being in an environment that looks like a pure wasteland with no escape.

I mean, Uncharteds environments are fkn stunning and I love 'em. But being surrounded by abandoned buildings is boring, even if it looks mega realistic.

Can you be a bit more specific with what this "generation" is? Are you referring to the consoles or a period of time?

I don't really like many games that don't have multiplayer.

However Red Dead Redemption did and the free roam was good.

MW2 was probably the best MW.

Since Nov. 2005??!! That list is way too long, we're talking about Oblivion era and beyond.... But if I had to pick absolute favorites...

Journey
League of Legends
Minecraft
Aion
Bastion
BioShock
Mass Effect 1
The Orange Box
SC2: Wings of Liberty
Amnesia
Magicka
Sins of a Solar Empire
Company of Heroes
Bayonetta
Last of Us

That still doesn't do the last 8 years justice...

Not a huge fan of Red Dead, and did not like Fable 2 or GoW at all.
