    I know it is slightly premature as there are still a hand full of great games due to be released on the current gen systems. As we are nearly there I was just thinking about the best and worst games as I was asked by someone on here what my least favourite games of the gen were.

    Just copied from xbox.com my game list to see and it shows how great this generation has been as I have played around 130 games!! That is far more than any other console but some huge margin. Obviously that is partly to do with my finances but I still feel this generation has been the best when it came to consistent quality.

    Think my personal favourites are:

    Dishonoured
    Halo 3
    Alan Wake
    Max Payne 3
    Gears of war 3
    Mass Effect
    Bioshock
    Skyrim
    Battlefield BC2
    GTA 4

    that makes ten, perfect. What are yours?

    130+ :confused:

    Some of my favourites are Fallout 3, The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword, Dead Space 1/ 2, Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us, Halo 4, Mirror's Edge, Mass Effect (all of them), Borderlands 1/ 2, Portal 2, Uncharted 2, Bulletstorm, Battlefield 3, Super Smash Bros Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy 1/ 2, Guitar Hero Metallica, Assassin's Creed 2 and I've just remembered there's a whole load of download only games I've not been thinking about so I'll stop there.

    Special mentions to Dark Souls and XCOM: Enemy Unknown as games I think are fantastic but I'm not good enough at them for them to be my favourites.

    Indeed.
    To be honest we would be here all day. So many highlights I'm sure I have forgotten.
    I have around 210 games played on my gamercard, with a high completion rate (although not cheveo's) not including maybe 30-50 PS3 games.
    I have had 360 since the get go, so around 30 games played a year.

    The only game that inspired me was Trials Evolution from RedLynx game studios, the Xbox 360 XBLA game.

    It's only 15 Bucks, you get endless content via. Track Central user tracks, you have an editor that you can do everything you want, via. coding tools. There are high quality tracks every day from the Trials Community track creators. The tracks are from beginner to extreme, and those are very challenging to pass & Zero Fault & Platinize, and the bike physics took RedLynx very long to have it greater than most other 3D games.
    I've spent 16 days just for SP, few hours in MP, and much more in the editor

    I gave up on Dishonoured after the first four or five levels - it just didn't 'hook' me in the way I thought it would and surprisingly felt a little tedious.

    This is coming from a huge fan of Thief, Deus Ex and the like too. Maybe I should give it another go...
