This seemed to be quite the tall task when approached about this, because lets face it, putting a solid seven years of gaming, from three different consoles into a list of only ten games…. Yikes! But I’ve never been one to back down from a good challenge, and this should cause quite the debate. There could be hundred of interchangeable parts on this list but with only ten slots; in the words of Kevin Hart’s daughter “someones got to go” (Watch his stand up Seriously Funny if you don’t get the reference, you won’t be disappointed).
The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii created a tour-de-force in video games creating what is regarded as the definitive generation of gaming. Each system saw its highlights and low-lights, but that didn’t stop the longest console cycle in industry history. Because of that, we have had the opportunity to play some amazing titles that continued to grow in size, content, focus on detail, and story telling. Like a fine wine, they got better with age. That doesn’t mean that some of the early games on each console didn’t make an impression, actually it is quite the opposite. They laid the foundation for the games we received toward the end before the current consoles hit the market.
Without further ado…. The Top 10 Games of the Last Generation Consoles:
Bioshock could make a case to be much higher on the list. The first trip to Rapture was one of the most memorable experiences in video games. Seeing the city under the sea for the first time, literally, gave me goosebumps taking the elevator down. The gameplay was tight, the visuals were stunning, and the story was worthy of an Oscar. At the time, it was one of the very few games that showed off what games should be on the newer consoles. The Xbox 360 adopters got quite the treat with the timed exclusive that eventually saw a PlayStation 3 release but well after the original release. We learned a lot from Bioshock and what we should see from other developers, now if the sequel could have been even a sliver of what the first was….
