XCOM: Enemy Unknown or Rayman Origins, I just can't decide between either of them. They're just too good!

For me it'd be between Uncharted 2, Batman: Arkham City, Super Mario Galaxy 2, The Last of Us and GTA V. I'd need to take some time to really think about it though, especially since the last two just came out this year.



I'll do my top 10.

1. Super Smash Bros Brawl
2. Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
3. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
4. The Last of Us
5. Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones
6. Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
7. Bioshock Infinite
8. Assassins Creed II
9. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
10. Mario Kart Wii

It's been a fine generation.

So in less than two weeks the seventh generation of video game systems is going to be over with.

Doesn't the generation end when the last system from that Gen is discontinued? I mean I have seen alot of places saying that the sixth gen went from 1998 when the Dreamcast was released to 2013 when the PS 2 stopped production. Cause if that's the case the seventh gen is still going cause the PS3 and Xbox 360 are still in production and have many great games yet to come.

If that's the case I can't chose yet but so far I would have to say that mine would have to be Batman Arkham City.

Catherine. It was the most challenging, unique, creative, different, and mind bending game of this past generation. Loved every moment of it. Close second is New Super Mario Bros. for making old school new school again. And third is Wii Sports for getting more people into video games and finally getting motion controls right.

Actually, Tasuki has a point, although I think it's safe to say what your GOTG is when all the big games stop coming to the older consoles...which means we still got another year at least.

Actually, wait. PunchOut!! Wii was my game of the generation. Purely because of the beatiful level of replayability.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy, Pokemon Platinum. All three of those games I've put countless hours into.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

If I had to choose one, it would be Journey. I can see why people would take it as a 2 hour walking sim for $15 and I respect that but for me the biggest factor in determining play value is what the game can do to leave a positive lasting impact on the player no matter the length of a game.

Honorable mentions would include Dead Space, Phoenix Wright Trilogy, The Walking Dead and The Unwound Future.

Super Mario was always my favorite game
Now i play cat Mario (link is in my signature) and like it so much as it's like super mario but you play with cat and there are lots of hidden traps and so on.

A 3DS and Wii U sequel to this would be the greatest game of all time.

I also played many online games of Fortune Street to the point of ruining my sleep schedule (It's back to normal now though).

Top 3 are:
Xenoblade Chronicles
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Super Smash Bros Brawl
But, like @Kodeen, I'm really behind on the big games of this gen. I feel like The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings would be on that list if I had played it.

"The future doesn't belong to you!"
Waiting for: Xenoblade Chronicles X, Zelda Wii U, Rainbow Six Siege, Star Fox Wii U, FFXV.
Currently playing: Super Smash Bros for Wii U, Teslagrad, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and 100% completing Xenoblade Chronicles.

My game of the generation is definitely Metroid Prime Hunters. Unlike any other game I've played, I feel like Metroid Prime Hunters offers a large degree of personalization. Within the plot, Samus Aran and the six new bounty hunters all have a basic outline to their characters, and these outlines ultimately become the springboards for a multitude of interpretations. I continue to theorize on the game's material and characters to this day. Over seven years of being able to capture my imagination is an incredible feat for a video game, and I love the experience of Metroid Prime Hunters for being so open for that level of investment. That appreciation continues on into the layout of the single player, as it is designed in a way where I can decide how a vast majority of the adventure will play out having a number of completion routes available. Personally, I prefer the game's fastest route that is more intensive of portal and Power Beam usage. That being said, I don't mind going with the game's sniping route for completion either as I've found it cool to skip right to the latter chambers of the Vesper Defense Outpost without even getting the area's first Octolith. Plus, completely dominating the Volt Driver Guardians at Data Shrine 02 with two headshots is always satisfying. Metroid Prime Hunters is an experience that can be taken where a player's imagination goes....

....and these days my imagination can't get enough Metroid Prime Hunters.
