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....

Has to be Brawl, I have probably spent more time playing Brawl with my friends than I will playing any other game in my life.

I'd have to say Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Skyrim, Minecraft, or DMC. All of those are awesome.

I made a list by genre:

RPG - Xenoblade Chronicles - Actually, I'd say this is my game of the generation. It has practically everything I've ever wanted in a video game, and it doest almost all of it just right.

Fighting - King of Fighters XIII - It's been a while since a game left me smiling ear to ear every time I played it, but this is definitely one of those games. My only qualm is that the AI is stupid as hell in Versus mode. I had to crank the difficulty all the way up to get even a remote challenge.

Adventure - Ghost Trick - It's freakin' Ghost Trick! Creativity! Ghosts! Pomeranians! YES!

Action Adventure - 3D Dot Game Heroes - A Zelda clone that actually exceeds Zelda in every concievable way? I can dig that.

Hack & Slash - Bayonetta - Do I even need to say it? This is a better Devil May Cry 4 than even Devil May Cry 4, and considering that was my second choice, that's saying something.

2D Platformer - N+/Super Meat Boy - This was a difficult choice, so I'm just putting both down. Despite my general apathy towards indie games, these were two big non-old-game reasons for me to keep my 360, as well as two games that changed my whole perspective of platformers: Instead of just being frustrating patience testers, they actually have the capacity to be fun.

3D Platformer - Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time - Despite having virtually no competition, I still felt it was a pretty fun game in its own right.

Open World - Crackdown - It takes a lot for me to enjoy an open world game, but this game really knew how to do it all right. The story was silly without being too over the top, the narrator was funny as hell, the whole world and everything just had this charm to it that I really liked. The gameplay was refreshing and actually felt like it offered a lot of freedom. I especially loved the ability to focus on platforming and collecting, it made it fun to just run around and explore.

Third Person Shooter - Vanquish - High Octane Action: The Game

First Person Shooter - Killzone 2 - Because I only played the demoes of Crysis and Far Cry 3: Dragon Blood. Still, KZ2 was pretty much the only FPS I did play that was actually really fun...and I honestly played way more of those than I ever would've believed...I just got Borderlands, though, so we'll see. Oh, and I should see if there is a demo for Call of Juarez.

Strategy - Valkyria Chronicles - Because I didn't play XCOM (Hurry up with that double pack, 2K!). And because it really is a great game with charming characters (once you change the voice acting to Japanese), an interesting story, and creative gameplay.

Racing - Wipeout Pure/Wipeout HD - Seeing as Wipeout HD took a lot from Pure, and I played Pure way more, I thought I'd list both together. I don't play many racing games anymore, but when I did, Wipeout soaked up more of my time than I ever care to admit. It's all around a fantastic pair of games, with a bunch of cool modes (including an endurance mode that you don't normally see in racers), loads of style, great music, and fun tracks. The HD version especially looked gorgeous. RIP, Studio Liverpool, at least you left behind your masterpiece.

Beat 'em up - Scott Pilgrim VS The World: The Game - It's been a while since I played a game that just oozed charm from the love put into it. I don't even really like Beat 'em ups, but I couldn't not love this game!

Rhythm Game - Elite Beat Agents - ^Last game I played like this.

Stealth-Action - Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow - I'm definitely not a fan of Stealth games, and this probably doesn't even count, but I need to include it somewhere. XP It was an all-around fantastic game that actually felt like it could be a big blockbuster console game in the palm of my hand. The story was surprisingly good, the gameplay mixed stealth and third-person shooting really well, there was an incredibly diverse amount of missions, and there was stuff to collect that unlocked things (that's always a plus...and unfortunately pretty rare these days).

Minigame Collection - Retro Game Challenge - Oh my god, this game really knew how to make you feel like you were sent back in time! So much attention to detail! Most of the games were fun, too. Most of them. <_<

No competition...I mean, I understand not liking games like Mario Galaxy, Sonic Colors, Mirrors Edge, and Ratchet and Clank. But that game is "no competition" over all of them...unless, you just mean competition by number of others and if that is so i'm getting flustered over nothing.

Mine would be between Red Dead Redemption and Donkey Kong Country Returns. Tough choice.

I'd probably have to go with Xenoblade Chronicles.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 is very close though.

As for handhelds, The World Ends With You and 999 are probably at the top of the list, but can't compare with Xenoblade and Galaxy 2.

Tough choice for me as there have been many brilliant games over the past generation, such as Super Mario Galaxy, Halo 3, or Batman Arkham City.

When it comes down to it though, it easily. Has to be Super Smash Bros. Brawl - it really Is completely epic and there is not a single thing I dislike about it.

Just Smile.

Without a doubt my game of the generation is Bioshock, and rightfully so. The world it creates is so unique and unparalleled. The story is absolutely amazing, the combat is nothing but fun, not to mention all the subtle underlying themes, the secrets, and all those little details that make Rapture feel like a real place that was once beautiful. It is my favorite game of all time for the fantastic experience it gives, and i doubt that will ever change. It is a masterpiece that everyone should play, or at least try, it is for certain my game of the generation. Second would have to be Dark Souls :)

Super Smash Bros. Can't Wait!

Xenoblade Chronicles.

Second place; if you include PC in this "gen", I'd say Dragon Age: Origins. I've played that through so many times. Putting the difficulty on nightmare is a must though. Also, my male character married Alistair and became the queen. I wonder how that computes if those flags are dragged up in Dragon Age 3, lol.

This generation has gone on for so long that there's way too much to consider. Dark Souls would probably be my answer.

I had fun once and it was awful.
