FFD: What’s been this generation’s best game?

1 min read


As this generation of consoles winds down to an end, it’s time to get all retrospective. It’s been nearly 8 years of great games on all the systems – but it’s time to decide which one is best.

There are a couple that stand out in my mind; There’s Gears of War, which many believe really ushered in this gen, and of course there’s the very first BioShock which left millions of gamers enraptured. There’s also Red Dead Redemption, which managed to make even GTA IV look silly, and of course there’s current darling The Last of Us. Perhaps it’s Mass Effect? Portal? Dark Souls? Metal Gear Soap Opera 4?

Not to be forgotten, there’s also the Wii’s Super Mario Galaxy – which is one of the most inventive and wonderful games I’ve played. Some might even consider Skyrim the very best game this generation, but they’d be silly.

So you tell us, what do you think this generation’s best game is? Or at least, is until GTA V is out later this year.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
