Favorite games of current gen
 
We were talking about this in the Last of Us thread, so I thought I'd make a separate thread for it.

1. The Last Of Us
2. Red Dead Redemption
3. Gears of War 3
4. Gears of War
5. Mass Effect
6. Assassin's Creed 2
7. Mass Effect 2
8. L.A Noire
9. Bioshock Infinite
10. Gears of War 2

I don't own a PS3 (borrowed one from a friend just to play TLoU), so that's why I don't have Uncharted or any of the other PS3 exclusives on my list.

My favorites are Mass Effect 1, Bioshock, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Fallout 3, Portal (2).

It's crazy to me that there are 3 shooting games on my top 5, I don't even like shooting games that much.


Most disappointing games: Prince of Persia reboot, Zelda Skyward Sword, Metroid Other M, new Bioware releases, GTA4.

I'm on the next to last chapter of the first uncharted, and I gotta say once the zombies came into the game I completely lost interest and am now just trying to finish it. I'll probably start the third one tomorrow or the day after. Given my previous statement uncharted 1 is officially off my top 10. And I'll re-order them in favor of personal preference instead of what I did in TLOU thread.

1. Mass Effect 2.
2. AC: Brotherhood
3. Uncharted 2
4. Gears of War 2
5. AC 2.
6. Mass Effect
7. Super Mario Galaxy 2
8. Arkham City
9. Halo Reach. Best campaign I believe for a halo game, and I was addicted to the multiplayer forever.
10. Tomb Raider.

Games 2-5 are interchangeable. And I feel like I could put tomb raider a bit above that slot.

Honorable mention: Drake's fortune, BF3, Bioshock.

In my queue: Infinite, Uncharted 3, TLOU (played parts at a friends house so far), Portal 2. Are the only ones I'd say have a reasonable shot at moving into at least honorable mention.

Haven't played it yet, I'll tell you if/when I find them. It pissed me off in 2 as well. But at least they aren't as bad in 2 as in the first one I think.

Uncharted 3 is better then Uncharted 2, if you play both on crushing.
The reason most of you enjoy Uncharted 2 more is because of a more polished story and a far more intimidating villain. On easier levels, the progression through the story is more enjoyable then Uncharted 3.

However, Uncharted 3 has better graphics, sound, detail; far more interesting side character (Cutter). The missions are more fun (Citadel, Chateau, The Boat, Graveyard, Caravan, The Chase (both as young Drake & against the antogonist)...the game is just more memorable to me and the cut-scenes are more engaging.

Like I said already, to me Uncharted 3 > Uncharted 2 but you have to play both games on crushing. Once you perfect the strategy, you will have such an amazing experience with U3.

I think U3 also forces you to adopt to a more stealthy strategy in certain areas because enemies flank you if you engage in a fire fight. In U2, you can literally beat the entire game on crushing by engaging in a fire fight and using cover; the level design made it too easy to beat it.

U2 is far easier to beat on crushing then U3 or Drake's Fortune; however DF is by far the toughest on crushing.
