I'll try, but if i will only mention those games who truly impressed me this gen.

Super Mario Galaxy (best game this gen IMO)
Super Mario Galaxy 2 (while still amazing, i still think the first one was the better game)
The Walking Dead (best story this gen)
Journey (Amazing experience)
Mass Effect Trilogy (The whole saga is just too damn epic)
KOF XIII (best fighter this gen)
Bayonetta (best action game this gen)
Xenoblade Chronicles (best JRPG this gen)
Portal (one of the best puzzles i've ever played)
The Last of Us (just an overall excellent game)
The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess (probably my favorite adventure game this gen, it has a lot of issues, but i really liked it)
Super Smash Bros Brawl (IMO the best local multiplayer game this gen)
Valkyria Chronicles (A really nice mash up of JRPG and TPS)
NBA 2K12 (The best Basketball game in years, it feels like the culmination from decades of basketball games)
Starcraft 2 (Well...it's Starcraft)
Company of Heroes (damn fine RTS)

And that's everything at the top of my head i guess.

#30 Posted by Lucianu (9649 posts) -
  1. Mount & Blade: Warband - i have sunk so many hours in the singleplayer and multiplayer of this game, enjoying every minute, that no game during the 7th generation (late 2005-2013) has come close to the amount of time spent. This title has grown on me over time like crazy, easily my favorite game of this entire generation.
  2. STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl
  3. Fallout: New Vegas
  4. Bayonetta
  5. Super Mario Galaxy 2
  6. Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus - i cannot describe in words how much i fucking love this game or any of its revisions starting from GG X2 Reload.

The rest are in no order.

  • Legend of Grimrock
  • Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer (some of the best writting/quest design btw., it's the Planescape: Torment of our generation)

Yeah, that game made me look into the old-school 1st person grid based RPGs like Eye of the Beholder and Might And Magic. They're hard as hell, but very fun to play.

I'm torn. I love the Covenants more than the world tendency(though I think world tendency was used in a more effective manner), I think all things considered the boss fights are even(though Old Monk is king on sheer premise), I prefer the structure of Dark Souls more(being all Metroid like), the PVP stuff, the Artorios stuff, the better thought out level building(though minor adjustments), and I think parts of Demon's Souls can be a drag since you do end up backtracking so much through levels when you die. The shortcuts help, but not nearly to the same extent as the bonfires.

But I think the moment to moment level design is just sharper in Demon's Souls. Plus nothing in that game felt as lazy as Lost Izalith and um Demon Ruins. Also think cutting you at half strength was kind of effective and separated soul form with human form.

So I don't know. There are lot of little and structural things I love about Dark Souls, but the meat of the game I tend to have fonder memories of Demon's Souls.

Dark Souls 2 should come in and cheat, and ruin both of them for me. Make this easier on me.

Dark Souls 2 should come in and cheat, and ruin both of them for me. Make this easier on me.

The back tracking is the worst offender, Souls games have a LOT of farming and forcing you back to the start of every level with half health after dying felt needlessly cheap and tedious. I do agree that it differentiated soul and human forms but I don't think it was the right way to do it. Also having to go back to the hub whenever you wanted supplies etc was also a chore.

I think the easy to misunderstand (or not understand at all) world tendency made it less effective. Good idea but completely unknown to a lot of people where as covenants were a bit better explained and diverse.

World design is definitely Dark for me. Nothing will come close to the feeling of going on a giant trek and then realising your back at Firelink and salvation, it was an almost euphoric feeling at times. Not only that but having no health flasks and 1 more hit left in you and suddenly seeing a bonfire was a great feeling too. Demon's felt extremely oppressive (part of the reason people like it) but you knew when you died you were back to square one. Izalith and Demon ruins were very clearly half finished, I think they even said that didn't they? but yeah they weren't up to the standard of the rest of the game.

As far as bosses go it's either or really. I think the environments you fight bosses in in Dark Souls were a little better but yeah the monk was sweet. Favourite boss is still Artorias though, dude's a fucking badass. Not to mention it's some of the best DLC I've ever played.

I can see why some would like Demon's more but to me Dark was the perfect balance of hard and casual. It wasn't easy but it gave you enough to keep you from getting toally lost. Combat is also tighter and more responsive with slightly better hit boxes.

#50 Edited by Beefkebob (84 posts) -

Only will give explanations for the top 5:

#1 Last of Us - such amazing, deep, varied, intense, dynamic combat gameplay that is leagues above anything else out there. Amazing characters, amazing deep thought provoking story, and the fact it is all flawlessly interwoven into one-where gameplay and story only serve to compliment each other, puts Last of Us into a god tier catagory.

Last of Us is not just the best game of this gen, Last of Us is easily one of the GREATEST pure games of all time...and i've been gaming since on the NES. Naughty Gods indeed

Then way below.....

2. Uncharted 2 - remains the pinnacle of action adventure. Set pieces are second to none. Game is so fun to play, light hearted in nature, with a fun well told story and fun likeable characters. The only cinematic game to get IT RIGHT and still include good gameplay (Yep those Naughty Gods)

3. Uncharted 3 - More of that awesome Uncharted flavor. Whats not to love. Unchated is the best new series of this gen. Unchated 3 was even better and bigger then its predecessor in many ways. Better story, better meele, better set pieces. Shipyard level is the best smoothest TPS level ever.....but you have to place Uncharted 2 higher because of the way Uncharted 2 revolutionzed this generation...

4. Metal Gear Solid 4 - loved the story. All the fan service that was included for fans of the series. What gameplay that was there was awesome...was such an engrossing experience. Was one of the first grand experiences i can remember having on my PS3

5. God of War 3 - the begining level completely blew my mind away. The Chronos level blew my mind too. To this day they still impress. I also loved the combat. My favorite thing to do was knock an enemy into the air, combo them in the air then finish it with O to grapple. I also loved using the grappling hook on an airbone opponent from the ground

6. Heavy Rain

7. Ratchet and Clank: A crack in time.

7. Killzone 2

9. Infamous 1

10. Bioshock 1

11. Infamous 2

12. Uncharted 1

13. Ratchet and Clank future: tools of destruction

14. Red Dead Redemption

15. Beyond Two Souls

16. Little Big Planet

17. MLB the Show 13

18. Killzone 3

19. Super Mario Galaxy

20. Rayman Legends

Im sure if i thought it about much more, the list would look different each time, and i would probably include some games I had even forgot about and left out.....but my top 3 is pretty much set in stone
