Tuesday Chat, October 8


With a new generation of consoles soon to be rolling into town, we'd like to make today a day of reflection. There have certainly been some brilliant games over the past six years or so, but which are your favourites? 

Titles such as Halo, Uncharted, The Last of Us, Batman, Tomb Raider, God of War and Red Dead Redemption have all lit up this generation and there are plenty more too, but which hold the fondest memories for you?

Why not post your five favourite current generation games below.

Let's Chat!

@ANDY: There was an announcement some months back. The publisher can't guarantee to ShopTo that they will be able to honor all of the pre-orders. That is why it is not available. I guess it will be available on launch. I agree with ShopTo. It is the right move. @yodasoldier: There are many other games that are better than CoD. I haven't even played the last one, because every single year is the same thing. And it is overpriced. On topic. As 360 gamer my favorite games this generation are: Gears of War (1 & 2; 3 was kind of meh; I didn't like Judgement's multiplayer that much), Halo Reach (Halo 4 was great, especially the multiplayer), Darksiders II (awesome game, liked it a lot), Batman Arkham City (playing for a second time now, great game with awesome combat system), Assassin's Creed (Ezio trilogy was amazing; III was great, with amazing ending for Connor's storyline (I know that some of the people that played the game didn't like it); the first one was great kick-off for the franchise); Mass Effect Trilogy. Honorable mention: DmC (enjoyed it, a lot :) )

For me the Uncharted Trilogy is the highlight of this generation. Then its probably the Gears Series then Ni No Kuni.

Stand out games of the last generation? Not a lot really, Mario Galaxy, Borderlands, Mass Effect and Saints Row spring to mind.

The stand out games for me were The Last of Us and the Infamous series. I played these games a lot and really enjoyed them.

Burnout Paradise! By far my favourite and only the second game I owned this generation. Uncharted 1 & particularly 2 stand out, along with Fable 2 & 3, which both consumed way more of my time than they should have done. DiRT 2 is also a favourite.

No it is not Andy though they have said that they may do a streaming thing similar to PS4 if there was demand for it. Favourite ones for this generation were Mass Effect(1-3), Red Dead redemption, Cod 4, Borderlands (1+2), Gears of War and Uncharted even though I feel as though the third one was a bit of a let down personally feel as though it was just rushed out after how well the second one done.

You might have to raise a ticket for that or email them, I am sure i have seen similar stuff before asked and that was what they were told to do.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I'm sure everyone knows mine already but I'll play along anyway. In no particular order: Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, Dragon's Dogma, Journey.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I was going to include Fire Emblem on the 3DS but was not sure how handheld generations would fit in. Dragons Dogma was great but it did feel as though it was made for co-op then taken out. Never did complete it thanks to my save file disappearing.

Just did zombie thanks i forgot about tickets only ever had too use it once. Nox no blazblue tut tut. anyways i'm shocked we cant still changed our pic & also my dragon's crown on its way :D
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I really need to start playing it again as I haven't played the second half of the game or explored Bitterblack Isle. (It doesn't feel like Co-op to me)

I like Blazblue but I don't really like fighters all that well
Zombieflamingo's avatar

looks like I am stuck with jesus zoidberg then. It is just the whole summoning other player pawns and so on. I was just about to go fight the big dragon. Will probably go back and play it again later.

The strange thing is if I go into the memory settings on the xbox my save file is still ther it just does not load when I go into the game.

Zombie try copying it then try it then if that doesn't work copy your save to usb then see if it will work that way.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

What I do if my save corrupts in put it on flash drive, open it in Modio and Rehash it, works most of the time

Considering the vocabulary that you are using, I will guess that you don't have such a broad view for games now do you? It is good to play something different once in a while ;) p.s. You haven't played against me, so you don't know if I am good or not. Truth hurts. On topic, I forgot to mention Dark Souls. Now, THAT is game.

I used grass in white & white 2 witch worked great. But this time might go fire or water they both look great also chespin is cute too but we'll see who i choose when my x version arrives.

Baiken nier I forgot about that but only played the demo witch was stunning. but the real deal is waiting for me in my backlog cant wait to play nier needs an second game that's for sure.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Grass works well for me this time as I get to have my Charmander as well, was tempted by the water one might go for that when I get X after i am finished with Y.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
In Black 1 I picked Mijumaru, in Black 2 I picked Pokubu so in X or Y I'm thinking Chespin then Squirtle and then Torchic from the Event but I'll see what Pokemon I like when I catch up with the Anime ( I'm on Episode of N Episode 8 so I have a lot to catch up on)

Nier was a utter failure if I remember correctly

You should play it when you get the chance it has its flaws like any other game but imo it has the best ost this gen and a good story too.

Baiken_'s avatar

I enjoyed those games too, its just a matter of preference. Nier follows on from the fifth ending of Drakengard.

Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Yes, it kept on saying something along the lines of "This game is not available for purchase right now, try again later"
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
When you starting Pirate Warriors anyway? It goes up to Marineford/The Battle of the Best
