Your top games this generation?

Since this generation is coming to a close in a few months, I'd like to know what everyone's favorite games by category are. I know there are a few months left and a few good looking games aren't out yet, but for the most part all the great games are already released this generation.

You can put in any category you want (I am sure many of us stick to certain types of genres of game) but the games have to be this generation (no remakes from previous gen games, no HD upgrades, etc), it has to be a game on the 360/PS3/Wii/PC (it has to be a PC game released within the lifespan of the consoles). I'm not going to allow 3DS/Vita games as I consider those "next gen" handhelds, they have only been out 1-2 years and the Wii U is a next gen console so that doesn't count either.

Also you can only put a single game once on your list, so if you have X game listed under best RPG you can't also have X game under best Adventure. Pick the most appropriate category/genre for each game and keep them there. You have to have also played the game personally. This should be obvious but, yeah.

You can follow my outline or make your own:

I would say overall SC2 is the best strategy game. Civ is really good, but it doesn't get my top vote.

Best Strategy: Starcraft 2. Starcraft 2 dominated the RTS scene ever since the release of Brood War. It played one of the biggest roles in putting E-sports on the map. It is one of the most popular games ever made. In terms of gameplay, I think it is second to none. Obviously it depends on people liking the real time aspect of it. But it came with a full campaign in Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm, it has a HUGE arcade section where blizzard as well as users make games for others to play. At a competitive gaming level, it is a top 5 game. It just has everything.

Best MMO: This has to be World of Warcraft hands down. I don't think any of the others really have a case. WoW is what every MMO released is compared to. There is a reason that WoW has been here for the better part of a decade while other MMO's die faster than they were created.

Best FPS: I am going to say Battlefield 3. It didn't have that competitive aspect like CoD or TF on a large scale, but gameplay wise it is in a league of its own.

Best RPG: Skyrim. It was just the best. Just an absolutely insane amount of quest lines, items to find, things to do. The graphics were phenomenal when it hit.

That's all I have for now.

I disagree with this comment.

WOW, is nowhere near the best MMO on the market, it was surpassed a long time ago in terms of gameplay. It literally looks like you playing a game from 10 years ago, which is almost correct in terms of the games age.

Let anybody new to MMO's play something like Guild Wars 2 for a day then WOW for day and I'd bet they'd choose Guild Wars 2.

I tried WOW for a month when I was playing Age of Conan, and I've got to be honest here with you - I thought it sucked, I did not like it one bit. Character Customisation is terrible, you literally feel like your playing the same toon as 100,000's of other players, which completely ruined the immersion for me right from start.

Where WOW succeeds is the amount of players it has and the amount of money it makes. It's by FAR the largest MMO, constantly being updated and is generally bug free... plus it will work on any piece of shit spec PC. So in that sense it is no1.

GW2 was a total bust. Swtor was an even bigger bust.

GW2 had better graphics sure. But that was it. The questing is even more repetitive than WoW with the need to repeat the same events over and over. And when you finally do cap, you find out the the end game is horrid.

Swtor was a humongous bust. It's "dynamic questing" was generic MMO grinding with voice acting.

The proof is already there. WoW is the only game that has sustained the amount of subs it has had for this long. Sure it. Is slowly dwindling, but the amount of people that play it over GW2 is pretty large.

Like it or not, WoW shaped the MMO landscape. That's why when an MMO launches, it is immediately compared to WoW. It's end game is FAR superior to any MMO on the market.

If your talking about overall success then WoW is the greatest,and you cant compare Age of Conan or Guild Wars since Wow came out during EQ 2 days.

All MMO's are bust when you compare them to WOW. WOW, should have a good end game after being about for so long, end games tend to be added as the games mature.

People who play MMO's tend to show bias towards the game they are playing, I've only played AOC for any length of time, and since I've tried several I can give this point of view from neutral perspective. Rift, SWTOR and GW2 are all better games than WOW.

I'm not sure how you come to conclusion that questing is more boring on GW2 than WOW, I thought it was a 1000 times better.

WOW is old, it has a old combat system, old graphics system, old questing system.

WoW, did shape the MMO landscape and you're right about all MMO's being compared to it at launch. But they don't compare graphics or gameplay, they compare numbers and potential. They may not ever be another MMO that can get 10,000,000 active subs per month again, these days 1,000,000 is considered good.

Look at it another way. If WoW never existed 8 years ago and was just released with the current gen of MMO's it would get laughed out of the market.

Eh, it's already there. More people would rather pay a monthly fee to play WoW than play GW2 or Swtor for free. That makes WoW the better game. Maybe you don't like it more. But overall, more people like it over what is out now.

But for the sake of not turning this thread into a WoW versus whatever thread, we should just agree to disagree or make a separate thread.
