Best Game of This Generation

  1. So as this generation draws to a close what game would you guys say is the best of this generation?

    I know a lot of people would probably say something like Witcher 3, but I'd probably go with Subnautica. The sense of exploration and wonder is something I've only experienced in a few other games. And it's pretty much endlessly playable.
  2. I'd go with Bloodborne, the best FromSoft game and a real masterpiece. The combination of challenge and exploration were perfectly balanced and the DLC is one of the best pieces of DLC ever created.

    If I had a top 5 the other games would be The Witcher 3, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn and The Binding of Isaac Rebirth.
  3. Witcher 3 and all it's DLC is arguably one of the greatest games I've ever played so that's my choice.
  4. Could certainly see arguments for Bloodborne and Witcher 3, but my pick has to be Nier: Automata. I'm not sure I've ever had a story in a video game hit me this hard. Up until 2 years ago the most emotionally impactful game I'd played was Half-Life 2: Ep. 2, so it's quite an accomplishment to supplant that.

    One of the popular user comments on Steam:
    Most streamers didn't make it past the first hour of Route C without needing to take a break.



    I can't remember becoming consumed with and overwhelmed by a game like this since Dark Souls almost 10 years ago. Brilliant writing and characters, and due to the eccentric conditions and setting, you don't expect what is coming.
  5. I just played Nier Automata for the first time. I thought it was okay, started getting into it, then died after 46 minutes of playing. I was rewarded with having to start from the beginning again.


    2/10 Glad I only paid $13.
  6. I watched the first 10 seconds of the opening credits of Citizen Kane and then threw it out the window. Terrible movie based on what I've seen so far. I don't understand the hype behind that movie. I also didn't like the font on the cover of James Joyce's Ulysses. It's obviously trash.
  7. Doom (2016). I was expecting another survival horror knockoff, but instead, I was treated to an FPS masterpiece. I almost forgot FPS's were that much fun.
  8. Doom was way better than I expected. I'll probably go back and play it again some day.
  9. Doom 2016 and Titanfall 2 both had excellent single player campaigns and were among the best games this gen
