Now that the next gen is upon us I was thinking back about what has been my favourite or most memorable game of this gen?

For those of us that aren't jumping straight into the next gen this could be a good opportunity to take in anything we've missed.

There's been some great games but for me the most memorable game is COD4. It was the first game that i really felt blown away by the ability of the PS3 and the first game which I got involved with online gaming. The ghillie mission through Chernobyl was a stand out memory of the game.

Ironically it is this current instalment of COD that is making me ask this question. I came to the conclusion that instead of time consumingly playing game after game and ranking up, why don't I play something else and experience something new. While there's still plenty of life left in the this current gen system why don't I experience and appreciate what it has achieved.

Close call for me.

MP is definitely CoD4. SP is either Mass Effect or Mass Effect 2. Arkham Asylum and Uncharted 2 deserve shout outs too.

The Last of Us has to be the best game of this gen for me. Great story, fab graphics and totally addictive multiplayer. I miss that game.

I'm a big stealth fan, so have fond memories of Deux Ex Human Revolution and Dishonoured. I'm hoping the new Thief game tops those tho....It is coming out on ps3 isn't it?

Only a few stand out for me, The Last of Us, the Uncharted series and Batman Asylum/City.

There have been many good games but those few I really enjoyed.

Uncharted 4 on the PS4, drooling at the thought

Stand out games this generation for me.

Online is pretty easy, early on it was COD4, followed up with Battlefield Bad Company 2. No other competitive game has come close to those two for me.

Co-op is much harder to call. GTA5 has just been awesome in a private co-op orientated season with friends. Uncharted co-op was unexpectedly good fun and lasted a lot longer than I thought it would after been initially sceptical about multiplayer been added to the series. Borderlands, Saints Row and Dead Island were all great games for their co-op campaigns.

Single Player is even harder to call as this is my preferred mode. GTA5 was pretty awesome and a return to form for the series. Red Dead was unexpectedly great after its rather meh outing on PS2. Uncharted 2 was outstanding and the peak of the series for me. Motorstorm 2 was fast furious fun which also provided me with my biggest wow moment graphically this generation. And Super Stardust HD is the one game that I have consistently returned to throughout the generation.

And an extra mention for the crap games I thoroughly enjoyed even though so much was actually wrong with the games. Alpha Protocol, The Saboteur and Driver.

COD 4, it's just a shame it has been turned into a total crap-fest.

Alan Wake was amazing in my eyes, really enjoyed Fable 2, Red Dead Redemption, GTA 4, Call of Duty MW3 and Assasins Creed 2 were all really enjoyable games

Heavy Rain probably was quite a while ago now and Metro Last Light.

How can I possibly be the first person in the thread (unless I've missed something) to mention Skyrim?

It was that much of an experience I could forgive the bugs and issues with the Ps3 version, I mean, even the thread on this forum was epic!

There's been so many good games, but the ones that stick out for me have to be The Last of Us and Portal 2.

The Last of Us for me. Absolutely excellent in pretty much every way.

In fact, 2013 has been a tremendous year and the generation is going out with a bang, as I'd place Bioshock: Infinite and GTA V as runners up.

Another mention for Uncharted 2, full of proper WOW! moments, and so compelling I played it through in 2 sittings!

UNCHARTED 2 for me as well. This game was literally like playing or being part of a film. I was blown away at how much it improved over the first UNCHARTED game which was good but nothing spectacular.

Mass effect 2 and uncharted 2 were highs. Gta v from a technical stand point.

Well my favourite MP is KZ3 tried a few others and apart from UC2 where I was Ok not good, and KZ2 where I did OK for a few matches. I was not much use but I am really good at KZ3 so had immense fun.

I've had a think about this, and I will have to give it to The Last Of Us, there are so many amazing moments in that game. It's not full of huge set pieces like Uncharted (which I also love), but still manages to make an impact through storytelling and acting alone. It's not something you can just pick up and play at a friends house for half an hour, I don't think you can really get the measure of it in that time. The tension and the relationship between the characters subtly builds over the course of the game, so you can't just jump in at any point, the demo is also rubbish for that reason. I've seen a few people in the Last of Us thread say that they weren't overly impressed at first, then come back after finishing it and say how much they loved it. It's definitely a grower and something that stays with you after you finish it. It is a very special game to me, I miss playing it, I still have my Survivor plus run to do. I can't wait for the DLC, this will be the first DLC I have bought, very late in the gen to start. I just don't normally bother, I will make an exception for this as it is story DLC.

Honourable mentions, go to Uncharted 2, Red Dead Redemption, Assassins Creed 2. All games that I love.
