What is the best game of this generation? Starting at the 360s lanch. The biggest contenders are obviously Bioshock,Portal, and Uncharted 2. A couple months ago I would have said Unvharted 2 but know I' m on my 4th playthrough of inFAMOUS 2 so tahts my favorite game of the gen.m Whats yours?
No games blew me away the same way games on the PS2 did. I think that's because not everything at that point was trying to be gritty and relistic. Games like Ratchet & Clank, Jak and Daxter and Sly Cooper will always go down as "Freakin' Sweet" games because they were made in a time where being fun was the #1 goal of devs. Now everything is just trying too hard to be hard eg. Call of Duty, Battlefield, Killzone, etc etc
Uncharted 2, inFamous 2, and Bioshock are all great choices.
From a design standpoint, I'd pick Uncharted 2. It is the game to which all future linear action games should be compared to.
If we're talking about the narrative, the two that stuck with me the most were inFamous 2 and Red Dead Redemption. Good writing, solid characters, a lot of fun to play and they were both capable of attaching a good message without beating us over the head with it. (See: Far Cry 3, Mass Effect 3)
WHAT IS THIS!?
