Here’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a couple months, and that is a sort of send-off for the 7th generation. With the 8th gen gearing up fully with the final competitors entering the ring in a month, it’s nice to take a look back at what was the longest generation in gaming. Rather than complaining about all the bad things this generation brought, I’ll be talking about the good things: THE GAMES. While, undoubtedly, the 7th generation was a low point for the industry in many aspects, largely because of game devs and publishers being complete and utter idiots, we still got a bunch of really solid games.
I’ve been starting to see a few of these “top 10 games of the generation” posts/videos coming out, and man there’s something wrong with all of them. First… top 10 is FAR from enough to encompass the great games of the gen. Second… They all featured a lot of odd choices. I saw one that had Wii Sports on it… I mean… only 2 games in the whole gen were better than Wii Sports, are you for fucking real? Same with including CoD (even people who don’t like the series included it in their lists), what the hell?
So what I want to do here (instead of something completely worthless like a top 10 that includes total crap on it because “it was influential” and ignores tons of great games) is to make a completely arbitrary list of great games. No ranking at all, no limiting my numbers, no fucking CoD, just talking about great games.
I’ll make 5 posts total for this: This one talking about the consoles, one for all the great multiplat games, one for exclusive games, one for downloadable games and one for handheld games. I want to keep it short though, so don’t expect extensive reviews for each game on the lists.
So let’s start talking about the consoles! Yes, this is the one part here that will have some “negativity” (just being realistic), but the other 4 posts will be all about talking about the great games this gen!
