2017, for me:

  • Gravity Rush 2
  • Yakuza 0
  • Nioh
  • Persona 5
  • Sonic Mania
  • Yakuza Kiwami
  • Nier: Automata
  • Metroid: Samus Returns
  • Divinity: Original Sin 2

6 of those are in my top 10 of the gen.

+ Even though I don't like either, these were still a big deal:

@Renegade_Fury: Add Hollow Knight and Horizon Zero Dawn and the list is complete. :)

Yeah it's a tie between 2013 and 2017. But from those list l've played most games from 2013.

2017 by far.

Prior to 2017, I was very down on the whole modern gaming scene as I felt that I wasn't getting much of the types of games that I want anymore and then 2017 came along and delivered Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Sonic Mania, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, PUBG, and Cuphead. Those seven games that I just listed are all in my top 10 games of this entire generation and they were all released in the same year. 2017 rocked!

2013. Ni no Kuni and The Last of Us made it amazing for me. Got some pretty fun games too like GTA V and AC4

Honorable mentions to 2015 and 2017. In 2015 we got Bloodborne, which is the best souls game ever made and some other notable releases like witcher 3 and mgsv. 2017 we got Nier, yakuza 0 and Persona 5, which is really great year in my book.

Hard to pick an exact year. There's been a couple games each year in the last decade i've liked.

However, 2010 was pretty strong, it had Civilization 5, Starcraft 2 and Fallout New Vegas; all games I liked and even have them still installed on my PC.

Witcher 3: Wild hunt, no questions about it imo.

Dark Souls, God of War, Gta 5 and Red Dead 2 might come sort of close but still not enough to really challenge it.
