10 Amazing Games of the Last Generation

The seventh generation of video game consoles marked the transition to gaming in high definition. The advent of new consoles brought with it refined online connectivity and jaw-dropping graphics never before seen on home gaming consoles.

I personally came into the generation around 2010, about halfway through its lifespan. At the time, I had no idea just how much gaming was about to change, and I’m not sure many foresaw the coming of modern gaming trends like DLC and micro-transactions. We are not here today to talk about those often dreadfully abused innovations, and instead I’ll provide for you what I consider to be the ten best games of the seventh generations of game consoles!

I’m going to preface this list with a few rules. For a game to be eligible for the list I must have played it (duh) and it must be for one of the following consoles: Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, or PlayStation 3.

On to the list!

#10—Splatterhouse (PS3)

The first encounter I had with Namco’s Splatterhouse property occurred in the dimly lit side-room arcade at a local bowling alley. From what I can remember, the game was as brutally difficult as the graphics were, well, brutal. Splatterhouse was re-imagined in 2010 as a hilariously heavy metal beat-em-up action game, and while it had some serious flaws, I really like it as a game. The heavy metal soundtrack perfectly complemented the screaming of demons having their lungs ripped out through their butts. Thinking back, that might be the single most metal thing I’ve done in a video game.

#9—Wii Sports (Wii)

Nintendo struck gold with its motion control console the Nintendo Wii. During its lifetime, the console sold over one hundred-million units, and I believe that to be due greatly in part to the pack in title, Wii Sports. While nowhere as complex an affair as the other titles on the list, the popularity and accessibility of this game rivals any other game released in the 7th generation of game consoles. Sure, you could trick the game into believing you were making the motions required to play the game, but many games are susceptible to “cheese.” Before the release of the Wii and this game, I would never have believed I would see my grandparents play a video game. Wii Sports was a game that embodied its rating of E for everyone.

#8—Fallout: New Vegas

Of the two 3D Fallout titles to release during the 7th generation of consoles, Fallout: New Vegas pulls ahead of its predecessor due to excellent design decisions made by Obsidian Entertainment. While the Bethesda’s Gamebryo Engine was used in both Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas, Vegas proved to be a relatively stable affair thanks to the work of the developers. Relatively being the key phrase, because Fallout New Vegas still launched with more bugs than a Missouri summer. Fortunately, the story, world, characters, and gameplay are each masterfully crafted and justify a venture into a bug-filled post-apocalyptic Mohave. The Old-World Blues DLC is still one of the best DLCs I’ve played in the eight years since release.

#7—Castlevania: The Portrait of Ruin

Castlevania: The Portrait of Ruin marked my introduction into Konami’s legendary franchise. Having since played many of the other titles in the series, Portrait of Ruin remains my favorite Castlevania game of all time. This entry expanded upon the gameplay formula used in Symphony of the Night and Dawn of Sorrow and included over 100 unique enemies through its diverse locations. A multiplayer co-op mode and multiple single player game modes expanded Portrait of Ruin beyond its standard campaign. This game even featured an animated anime-style opening cinematic, and it absolutely blew me away at the time. It is a real shame that Nintendo Wi-Fi is no longer around to make use of the match made multiplayer for the boss rush mode.

#6—Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core

While I enjoy both the prequel and sequel games in the Final Fantasy VII expanded universe, Crisis Core pulls ahead of Dirge of Cerberus slightly for the significance and impact of its story. Crisis Core shows the events leading up to Cloud’s acquisition of the signature Buster Sword. Knowing how the story would play out did little to soften the blow, and the conclusion stands to this day as one of the most morose moments in gaming history. This game felt like it perfected the materia system introduced in Final Fantasy VII, and the real-time action combat felt great on Sony’s PlayStation Portable.

#5—Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Versions

Generation four of the decade old Pokémon franchise modernized the series with the introduction of the Global Trading System. I remember the late April release date clearly, as Pokémon Diamond Version was one of the first games I bought with my own money. It had rained that gloomy afternoon, but my evening was spent illuminated by the soft glow of a blue Nintendo DS. The Hokkaido-island-inspired Sinnoh region is one of the more interesting regional maps, with many of its cities based on real locations that correspond with in-game locations. Pokémon Platinum Version served as a two-year refresh of the same 4th generation Pokémon experience with additional content included.

#4—Portal 2

Portal 2 provided the perfect fusion of comedic narrative and space-portal puzzle gameplay. The second game takes place some time after the events of the first, though it is not necessary to play the first to understand the second. I’ve always seen Portal as being more of a proof of concept rather than a full-fledged experience, whereas Portal 2 perfected many of the ideas of the first game and added a ton of new ones. The final boss fight and credit sequence earns this game the fourth place on this list. If you’ve yet to think with portals, I recommend you give it a try.

#3—Halo 3

Halo 3 was my first venture into Xbox Live multiplayer gaming, and the first game I played in high definition. The graphics were so good that looking at the screen made my eyes hurt. Towards the end of the 7th generation, I was able to get an Xbox 360 of my own, and I played an obscene amount of the community created forge multiplayer content. Anyone up for some Fat Man, Resident Evil, or Mongoose sky track racing? Multiplayer progression was tied to a wide assortment of unlocks used to customize your player model.  Collecting the skulls hidden across the campaign unlocked the Hyabusa armor, the ultimate online status symbol. The final mission of the campaign served as a white knuckled conclusion to the Bungie Halo Trilogy.

Little did we know how much gaming was about to change.

#2—The Last of Us

The Last of Us is widely known for its cinematic approach to delivering one of the best stories ever to be told in a video game. Every character in this game is as authentic as the post-apocalyptic world they inhabit. Wrecking the world with a mutant strain of the Cordyceps makes for a zombie outbreak scenario that feels eerily rooted in reality, as a similar fungus is used in traditional Chinese medicine.

The Last of Us is by classification a survival horror title, though careful decision making allowed the game to avoid the pitfalls that plague the genre. Implementing a stealth system allows use of a methodical approach to alleviate the artificial threat generated by item scarcity and replaces it with the threat of being spotted by a munchy mushroom man. The opening sequence of The Last of Us is second to none, and it serves as an effective narrative hook. I highly recommend playing this game if you have the means to do so. The enjoyment of a game is highly subjective, so it can be difficult to rank one game above another. However, were it possible for a game to be objectively good, this would be an example of the phenomenon.

#1—Alan Wake

The number one game on this list was almost Left 4 Dead, but I cut it at the last minute when I remembered how much I enjoyed this game. Left 4 Dead’s enjoyment hinges greatly on the presence of other players, and that takes away from the experience in my book. Had I included more multiplayer games, MAG (Massive Action Game) would have also made the list. Unfortunately, that game has been shut down for quite some time now.

(EDIT: Recently, Alan Wake became available with no alterations for $14.99 on GoG.com!)

Alan Wake is an action horror game that feels taken right from the minds of Stephen King and Rod Sterling. Alan Wake is a writer suffering from writer’s block and for this reason he and his wife seek sanctuary from the bustle of city life in idyllic Bright Falls, Washington. Following a car crash, Alan’s wife goes missing and he begins to discover the pages to a novel he does not remember writing, and the novel begins to come true.

The residents of Bright Falls have been overtaken by shadows. The darkness can possess all manner of things and is only vulnerable to light. This mechanic makes combat tense, as you must burn the shadow off an enemy before you can dispatch them with a conventional weapon.

The game plays out across six episodes, each paced like a television miniseries. The music and sound design lend well to the feeling of playing a part in a show like The Twilight Zone or Tales from the Darkside. Alan Wake has become more difficult to find and digital storefronts have pulled the game due to recent music licensing issues. Prospective players should look for an Xbox 360 Physical copy for use with the backwards compatibility feature of the Xbox One for the best experience.

The ten games featured on this list are only a fraction of the games from the 7th generation I enjoyed. There are so many, I couldn’t practically include them all. Let me know what your favorite games of the 7th generation are in the comments section. I look forward to hearing all about them.

    I know that game is supremely popular, but I could never stand Alan Wake. I found the gameplay monotone to the point of boredom, the “scares” cheap and predictable, the story painfully derivative and the characters irritatingly unlikable. Twice I tried to play it (years apart). Twice I had enough a couple of hours in.

    And because I know someone’s going to cry about this: NO. You don’t need to play a full game to give an opinion on it. If two hours isn’t enough for it to get even remotely interesting to you, you’re perfectly OK leaving it. And you don’t need to give it a second chance. I did and I had the same experience both times. Enough is enough.

    For my list, trying to pick games you hadn’t mentioned, I’d choose, off the top of my head, Batman: Arkham City, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Super Mario Galaxy, Saints Row 3, Mortal Kombat 9/Injustice, Sleeping Dogs, Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition (while the game is from the 6th gen, the Wii edition’s controls make it a whole different experience), any of the numerous Professor Layton games and Mass Effect.

  2. Stormerbuzz35 on May 21, 2019 at 10:24 am said

    Personally I think Professor Layton should be on instead of Pokemon Platinum. Platinum is one of my least favorite regions as I can never figure where to go.

    • Damn, for me and a lot of my friends it’s the favorite edition, I mean yeah at first it’s kind of overwhelming, but that’s also kind of the fun part, finding the way through the game and at this point I’ve played through the game so many times that I always find my way

  3. As a hack&slash, 3rd person shooter and some fighting game fan, I highly enjoied…

    Metal Gear 4: Fantastic gameplay, a large singleplayer mode and a memorable multiplayer on-line… which is no more available after Konami switched off it’s servers. But still a brilliant game, which should be a must for anyone who’s looking for past games.

    Bayonetta: This one competed with DmC4 in my choice. But while in DmC4 you visit the same locations multiple times, to explore Bayonetta’s new, fresh and bizarre world was more varied and fun. That, alongside to a charming and sadic witch. What a game.

    Dragon’s Crown: A piece of art made game. You could choose between six well defined characters, with their own gameplay and a lot of different habilitys and weaponry to unlock/buy and lvl up, to adventure across very replayable stages with secret chambers and their unique boss. This game was a tribute to memorable beat’em up’s like D&D, Golden Axe, King of Dragons, etc. Loved it.

    Heavenly Sword: One of the first games to be released for PS3 and Xbox360 which was succesful showing those console’s potential and remained as a choice to have in mind during the entire generation. Amazing characters, amazing story, great gameplay, great graphics, great soundtrack, … the only true flaw of the game was it’s duration (around 10 hours). How nice would it be to have more content of this fantastic game to play.

    The Mortal Kombat (MK9): It’s accesible as well as deep, fast and fun gameplay, the best roster with all the classic fighters, and multiple modes, such as tag-team fights, made this MK my favorite in the franchise so far (even today). And I think it standed up as the best fighting game of the generation too against very strong competitors like KoF 13, SF4 or SC5, for example.

    • I love Dragon’s Crown. Spent too many hours in that game on PS3 playing couch-coop, online and singleplayer. Bought the Special Edition for PS4… I still don’t have a PS4…

    • I must also praise Dragon’s Crown. Possibly the best beat ’em up game I’ve ever played. Everything Vanillaware make is superb.

  4. SirLagsalot on May 21, 2019 at 1:17 pm said

    Alan Wake is actually back up on Steam. Went to the page to do a review of it, and saw that the price tag was back. I’m happy to see that people can play it again.

  5. kylelystevens123 on May 21, 2019 at 4:04 pm said

    Dragons Dogma NEVER gets the respect it deserves.

    • proctor_s31 on May 22, 2019 at 9:29 pm said

      Dragons Dogma has everything, and when I say EVERYTHING I mean it. Dragons Dogma might be the greatest game ever made. But theres one thing about it: Its so well made that its just a brutal game difficulty wise and time spending wise.
      That game is just indescribible, really, you can understand what Im saying only if you played it. I quit it with great sorrow because I knew it was going to consume my life lol.

    • I had Dragons Dogma in my mind all the time while reading the article, then browsed the comments and finally gladly found ya :).

      They are all masterworks, you cant go wrong.

  6. Didn’t expect to see Splatterhouse on this list. I thought it was a decent game and I wouldn’t mind seeing another similar sequel for it.

    Some of my favorite games from last gen include God of War 3, Batman Arkham City, Devil May Cry 4 and Dragon’s Crown.

  7. brian.wang on May 22, 2019 at 12:38 am said

    Wii Sports realy puts me back, we didnt have a lot of money back then so when the game came pre-packaged with wii sports my family and I would spend hours on end playing it. Good times 🙂

  8. NachosSenpai on May 22, 2019 at 12:39 am said

    Halo 3 was great, Alan Wake was great for me,but I understand it wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea which is why The Last of Us wouldn’t even be in a top 20 for me…it was okay watching someone else play,but I couldn’t get behind it myself. There were also numerous XBLA arcade and PSN games I’d put on the list,but way too many.

  9. GenericCharacter on May 22, 2019 at 12:40 am said

    Uncharted 2 and Borderlands 2 would be my top picks for last gen. The co-op in borderlands made it an even better experience. Scratched that Diablo 2 loot itch in a whole new way.

  10. New Vegas for sure as the dev did a great job with the RPG elements. I also support The Last of Us for obvious reasons. Splatterhouse was a title I wasn’t expecting to see on this list, but the original was iconic for the era, so I can understand that pick. Overall, a solid list.

  11. Borderlands 2 not being on this list while Alan Wake does bugs me a bit.

  12. Oh Halo 3… how many nights did we spend together? Listening to the sweet sounds of some 8 year old calling me disparaging names while I hucked plasmas randomly for kicks.

  13. Ryan Gravel on May 22, 2019 at 12:54 am said

    Wii sports was the freaking best growing up

  14. All I needed for Wii was Wii Sports… nothing else! What about Skyrim?

  15. Orange Man Bad on May 22, 2019 at 1:03 am said

    Diamond and Pearl were definitely my favorite.

  16. Orange Man Bad on May 22, 2019 at 1:03 am said

    Diamond and Pearl were definitely my favorite games.

  17. timlongasu on May 22, 2019 at 1:07 am said

    Type text here…My personal list of last gen favorites:
    10. Marvel Ultimate Alliance
    9. Assassin’s Creed
    8. Dragon’s Dogma
    7. Dragon Age Origins
    6. Dead Space
    5. Bioshock
    4. Gears of War
    3. Mass Effect
    2. Ninja Gaiden 2
    1. Dark Souls

    Honorable mentions: Lost Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption, Borderlands, The Orange Box

  18. Burndinorex on May 22, 2019 at 1:10 am said

    Wasnt Last gen splater house a complete mess of a game?

  19. stargorger on May 22, 2019 at 1:17 am said

    Wait….cordyceps is a real thing?! In MEDICINE?! This is like that add I saw a while back for some anti aging cream called Regenerist that looked suspiciously like the Resident Evil stuff lol

  20. swordmaster321 on May 22, 2019 at 1:17 am said

    For me, Grand Theft Auto 4 and Saints Row 2 were two of the best ones in the last console generation. I still stand by those being the best in their respective franchises too.

  21. I remember playing every game on this list. Most of them for hours at a time and played them multiple times. Games back then had so much value compared to games these days as a service. Great stories, great gameplay (for the time), and over great way to spend time getting lost in them. I still have or have family that has old school gaming consoles and still play these games till this day. My cousin has a family and his 8 year old son has a blast playing N64 smash bros compared to the one released on the switch. Nothing beats the originals lol

  22. kyler.claassen on May 22, 2019 at 1:30 am said

    I Loved portrait of Ruin. I hope one day Konami makes another castevania game…

  23. dickey1331 on May 22, 2019 at 1:43 am said

    Surprisingly I have only played 3 of those games. I do have to say that Fallout New Vegas is probably my favorite Fallout game. I think the song Big Iron by Marty Robbins is a big part of that. That game made me love that song.

  24. chikensssandwich on May 22, 2019 at 1:48 am said

    If I had to add one game to this list I would add Oblivion. This was my introduction to open world adventure games and had one of the best overall feels of any game I’ve ever played. Also the best memes in all the TES games.

  25. heregoesnothin77 on May 22, 2019 at 1:48 am said

    Was surprised by the games on this list as they are all great games in my opinion. I was especially surprised by Alan Wake being in the top spot, I loved the game back when it came out and it’s good to hear someone else really enjoyed it as well.

  26. Britten barnes on May 22, 2019 at 1:55 am said

    Honestly theres so many good games on,last gen from skyrim to the uncharted and ratchet and clank series so many games spent hundreds of hours playing through also on playstation is was free 😂 id gotta say last gen has some of the best for sure

  27. I agree with TLOU but the others are a different story. Some are just a difference in taste and others are just meh.

  28. Noodleboy on May 22, 2019 at 1:58 am said

    Okay, this may not fit here but I remember waiting and waiting and waiting for an Eternal Darkness sequel…or spinoff or ANYTHING really…wasn’t that supposed to hit a last gen? Maybe I remember that wrong
    Eternal Darkness needed more sequels…the Last of Us is a given for sure but I was pleasently surprised Splatterhouse was mentioned here..I still love that game…(all thenolder ones as well of course)

  29. minecraft.ideas.maps on May 22, 2019 at 2:02 am said

    Halo 3 was awesome

  30. comradeterb on May 22, 2019 at 2:14 am said

    So many good games last generation. So many hours spent playing Fallout 3/New Vegas and Skyrim.

  31. HelloamPanda on May 22, 2019 at 2:18 am said

    I still hold to that one of my all time favorite games was Batman Arkham City and Asylum. Between the fun gameplay, amazing characters such as the excellently voiced Joker done by Mark Hamill, and the love for the source material that seemed to shine in every part of the games will always hold a special place in my heart.

  32. The Last of Us is definitely my number one. I never played Alan Wake however, so it could be better, but probably not

  33. One of my top games out there is Dragon Quest IX, I believe it’s a DS Exclusive. I’ve played through that game so many times and it’s still great. I’m not a diehard fan of JRPGs but Dragon Quest and Persona really got me. While I’m at it I’d also recommend Persona 3-5, they really are something else

  34. I don’t think we can deny the impact Wii Sports had on the gaming scene for casuals. I may not think it is one of the best games of the past generation I think it’s one of the most important.

  35. piemantr on May 22, 2019 at 3:18 am said

    My favorite game is still MW2. It was the best multiplayer experience I had in an FPS. Nowadays, everyone is a little too….high strung? I mean it was the same for a lot back then but I found a lot more chill people back then than nowadays. It might just be me though.

  36. doughdough314 on May 22, 2019 at 3:22 am said

    You guys pick so many of my favorite games but if I go by what I have revisited the most & that I’ve made the most memories in, it would be Fallout: New Vegas. The Fallout franchise has been one that I’ve been in love with since I was introduced to the very first entry years ago. While I don’t like the way Bethesda has done business lately, as its brought a stain on Fallout, causing many to hate games that are amazing. Its caused a rift between many people who love the franchise & that’s a sad thing to witness. Despite it all, Fallout holds a special place in my childhood & continues to entertain me today.

    So despite the fact I love games such as the Last of Us & Halo 3 (Halo: CE was my very first xbox game & is dear to me) I’d have to say New Vegas is my favorite amongst these & I know it will live on for even longer.

  37. makary.debicki on May 22, 2019 at 3:48 am said

    Halo 3 is definitely a classic. I spent countless hours playing split screen matchmaking with my friends doing shotty/snipes on sandtrap. Nostalgia hits hard.

  38. jschmelter on May 22, 2019 at 3:53 am said

    Glad to see you included fall out new Vegas I used to love that game.

  39. CronoSaga on May 22, 2019 at 3:57 am said

    Nier (PS3) and Dark Souls (PS3) were two of my favorite last generation games. I’m a little surprised Dark Souls or its predecessor Demon’s Souls didn’t make the list considering that both games brought a lot of attention to From Software.

  40. great blog. Makes me think of the days when I was starting out into gaming.

  41. Dillionlee13.dc on May 22, 2019 at 4:25 am said

    I spent alot of my time playing on the xbox 360 and never really liked what was on the ps3 but as of now im really liking the library of these older consoles alot more than what we have current. Little bummed to see there were some handheld titles taking spots but if it counts it counts

  42. lharp1998 on May 22, 2019 at 4:27 am said

    I was surprised to see so many games that I haven’t played. The ones I had played through were really good picks, and I hope to go back and play them sometime shortly in the future.

  43. connorbnelson on May 22, 2019 at 4:28 am said

    I appreciate that this list has a mixture of both universally praised games (Wii Sports, FNV) and underappreciated titles (Splatterhouse, Alan Wake).

  44. kyle93tx on May 22, 2019 at 5:02 am said

    I’ve played a lot of these. This list brings back some memories but I will say the absolute best on this list in my honest opinion at least is definitely The Last of Us. That game had fantastic characters and the story line and enemies are some of the best still to this day.

  45. I love slaughterhouse. It was surprising finding it in this list

  46. jonb4892 on May 22, 2019 at 5:36 am said

    Halo 3 and Fallout New Vegas will always be in my top 10 favorite games of all time. It’s genuinely upsetting to believe that I will never have another multiplayer experience like Halo 3 again. You would’ve thought it was the only game that existed if you only talked to my friends back then. Hopefully The Outer Worlds has some New Vegas quest feel to it.

  47. Cameron Sisk on May 22, 2019 at 5:43 am said

    Oh god yes Halo 3! I spent so much time playing that game. I made so many friends and spent hundreds and maybe even thousands of hours playing all the super creative and fun custom games. Was so great. It and Mw2 are probably my 2 favorite games of all time and that’s saying a lot considering I love playing alone so much more than with other people.

  48. officepony671 on May 22, 2019 at 6:12 am said

    Alan Wake was a lovely little game, a bit short for my tastes, but it was nice and strange (just the way I like it).

  49. personauser71 on May 22, 2019 at 6:36 am said

    I enjoyed so many of the games on this list. I loved how much content was in Castlevania. It was also fun to play with cheats. Pokémon Diamond is my favorite Pokémon game of all time. The Last of Us is also a classic.

  50. Your Name Here on May 22, 2019 at 6:54 am said

    Great list 👍

  51. kreskofter on May 22, 2019 at 8:02 am said

    Alan wake was pretty boring. Other than that, this is a good list!

  52. Ultra Rad on May 22, 2019 at 10:13 am said

    Not gonna write a full on top 10 list but a few games I really enjoyed last Gen were
    Metal Gear Rising : Revengeance
    Contra Hard Corps : Uprising
    Yakuza 3
    Double Dragon : Neon
    Super Street Fighter IV

    I wish they would make HD versions of Contra, and Metal Gear Rising for this gen since both games were still fun to replay after beating them but I doubt it since its so late in the lifespan of the generation. Looks Like Yakuza 3 is getting a Kiwami remake at least

  53. Gamewars1999 on May 22, 2019 at 10:44 am said

    Bro halo 3 was amazing and all but my favorite halo game will always be halo 3 odst.

  54. X360 and Halo 3 still holds strong

  55. Oracle_of_Kongs on May 22, 2019 at 11:50 am said

    Sometimes I still can’t believe how old some of these games are now. It still feels like they just came out in my mind.

  56. Ah, so many memories split screening with Halo 3 in forge mode

  57. carlos_montes1 on May 22, 2019 at 12:03 pm said

    So many memories playing splitscreen halo 3 in forge mode with buddies. Definitely deserves to be on the list

  58. alonerhapsody on May 22, 2019 at 2:02 pm said

    played most of it

  59. Pretty solid list, but I have to admit that the number 1 was quite the surprise!
    And with so many systems in the previos generation – each deserves a list of its own.

  60. The Last of Us is my defining experience of the previous generation.

  61. Gwynefaer on May 22, 2019 at 4:09 pm said

    Of course The Last of Us is listed… I have been ITCHING to replay that game lately!!! And meh, it means firing up the PS3 again because I refuse to pay for a new download on the PS4!!! (Have the PS2 plunged in now because I got an itch to replay Shadowhearts!) Plus I haven’t finished Borderlands 2 or gotten that last Blazing Sun on the Control Trial (Frozen Wilds) for the Platinum trophy yet…. I seriously need to finish something before restarting yet another game!

  62. masterjayshay on May 22, 2019 at 4:18 pm said

    Man… None of the Bioshocks? You hurt my soul, friend.

    • Bioshock was good
      Bioshock 2 was decent (“decent” during the last gen = masterpiece for this gen…)
      Bioshock Infinite was a farce, one of the most overrated games of this past decade.

      There is a ghost in it… You gather an arsenal and the game takes it back from you… Gives you another set of weapons which are the same… A parallel universe where everything that was blue is now red… The story doesn’t make sense AT ALL… The laziness from the dev team was on another level…. Copy pasted a lighthouse to show you all the universes… Lazy from a design perspective as well as a narrative perspective… And above all else : your adventure was meaningless (even in assuming that was logic which it wasn’t at all…) ! Really, people love the game so they should have any trouble going back to it. Pay close attention to the last cinematic…

      Also, the lighthouses thing… Have you ever thought more than 30 seconds about it ? This game was stupid as fuck. It looks like someone read a single book about quantum theories and decided to include things he/she failed to understand.

      If you don’t understand the following, do even argue with my points because I know you love or hate Bioshock 3 from a place of ignorance :
      “Scroedinger’s cat is dead. Thank God, the cat is alive”

      Here you go, even if you don’t fully understand what I just said, apply that to this game :
      “Oh this happened. Thank God it did not happen” or the other way around…

      You had a goal. And you failed… or succeeded… BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER ! Bioshock Infinite in a nutshell…

    Skate 3 to this day remains as one of my favorite games of all time. Shame it didn’t make the list!

    No one really understands Lightning Returns as I do, and its a shame. Because that game is a freaking masterpiece.

    To the streak of light scarlet
    To the one that breaks the silence
    You illuminate the night
    In most awe-inspiring ways
    Sent up from high above
    A name like a precious poem
    Let me sing this song to you
    Gracious savior of our souls
