Skyrim is the best game this generation

That’s according to an online poll by (via MCV) that pitted this generation’s greatest games against each other in a tournament-styled beatdown. It bested current darling The Last of Us to claim the title of the best game of the generation.

Other games that made it through to the shortlist included Fallout 3, GTA 4, BioShock, Portal 2, Mass Effect 2, Super Mario Galaxy, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Batman: Arkham City, Far Cry 3, BioShock Infinite, The Walking Dead and Metal Gear Solid 4.

The Last of Us actually did really well, considering it was released on just one platform; Skyrim was available on 3 – so that could account for its win. Or perhaps it really is the very best game produced this generation, bugs, lifeless NPC’s and all.

What do you think? Agree, disagree? Is Bethesda’s buggy, but beautiful RPG the best game this generation?

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.
