With the new gen upon us, I thought it would interesting to see what everyone's favorite game was for previous gens they've been gaming. What was your stand out title for each? A few ground rules to clarify here.
1. A single game. Not a list of games. Not an entire series. A single game per gen.
2. If you're a PC gamer, use the cut offs of console gens with the game's release dates to set your markers. Do the best you can.
3. Switch will count as Gen 9 with PS5 and XSeX for this thread. Doesn't matter if you feel it's a Gen 8 system.
4. Not going to include handhelds in this. Switch is the exception due to its nature.
5. To push towards a bit more variety, only one game per series can appear in your list regardless on if it has seen multiple gens. Choose wisely.
Alright, that should be clear enough for the groundwork to get this going. As I started with Gen 3... here's mine:
Gen 3 (NES, Master System)
- Ninja Turtles (1st) - NES
Gen 4 (Genesis, SNES)
- Jurassic Park - Genesis
Gen 5 (PS1, Saturn, N64)
- Resident Evil (original) - PS1
Gen 6 (DC, PS2, GC, XB)
- Tomb Raider Anniversary - PS2
Gen 7 (PS3, 360, Wii)
- Uncharted 2 - PS3
Gen 8 (PS4, X1, Wii-U)
- Witcher 3 - PS4
Gen 9 (Switch, PS5, XSeX)
- Zelda BotW - Switch
Nintendo automatically gets the Gen 9 win for me thus far given that the new systems just started. We'll see how it plays out in the coming years.
