Since on practically every platform it has been on (PC/MAC/Xbox/Playstation) minecraft has been overwhelmingly well received and overwhelmingly sold, would it be fair to proclaim this as "the game" of the last generation?

yes. followed by fruit ninja and angry birds because sales determine how good a game is

wat!!!! uncharted 2 sold around 6m, tlou around 5m and mgs4 around 4-5m

so what is the criteria sales or metacritic? haha the actual game of generation would be wii sports, it was killer app on a console that sold the most last gen. without wii sports the wii would have been dead on arrival

Lol at whoever is bringing metacritic scores in.

Yes Minecraft most definitely a candidate for game of the generation in terms of impact and success..

I'd agree on the success part.

But impact? I know it spawned several copycats but there weren't any that got really popular

I realised after i posted that it probably wasn't the best choice of word. I meant in relation to the impact on pop culture, like "minecon", toys, (even minecraft lego now). hell, at least in my house, "herobrine" is more famous than the bogeyman

It certainly is in many ways and not only was one of the highest rated games of the gen but also probably the best selling non bundled game of the gen,and it´s influence is much bigger than most(if not all) games people will mention as game of the gen.

We were fine until this. Threads like this aren't going to fly. Don't make it again.
