In Third Person’s Top 10 Games of This Generation: Intro


The Xbox 360/PlayStation 3/Wii generation has been quite the trip. In its almost 8-year run, we’ve seen the meteoric rise (and fall) of the Wii. We experienced how online technology fundamentally changed the way we interact with the medium. We also got a plethora of wonderful games to play.

Ranking them is no easy task, and there is no right answer. As a list-maker, all you can do rank them how you see them and open the door for discussion. Over the next few weeks/months, I’ll be counting down In Third Person’s top 10 games of this generation.

The Process

There’s no real science to this. I wrote down a shortlist of games that I felt were the best-of-the-best and ranked them. Of course, overall quality of the game matters, though it’s lasting impact also played a large role in how they’re listed.¬†For a handful of games that I really wanted to mention but couldn’t fit in the top 10, I’ll give them honourable mentions.

It Begins…

…tomorrow. The first honourable mention will be posted then, followed by a subsequent posts in the series in the following weeks. Hope you enjoy!
