My favourite video games of the last generation – Reader’s Feature – Metro.co.uk


Rocket League - play with everyone

Rocket League– certainly one of the greats(picture: Psyonix)A reader uses his view on the finest video games for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch, from Rocket League to Resident Evil 7. As the generations cross this is an excellent a time as any to look back at the last generation and specifically the video games available on those platforms. In no specific order, here are my individual games of the generation. I shouldn’t need to say this but this is certainly based just on games I’ve played, and I do not have a video gaming PC, so this list is not indicated to be reliable. A few of these are rather obvious and have actually been widely praised by both players and critics, some are more specific niche and I’ll discuss and try why I opted for those. Rocket League(2015)What it does, it does so well. Consistent and fair, extremely addictive the

term’one more match’was never utilized more than with this video game. Addictive I had to take an interval and uninstall it throughout the summer as it was preventing me playing other video games. Among the very best multiplayer games of perpetuity, let alone this generation. Wreckfest (2019 )This one may raise a couple of eyebrows, but I almost ensure that those individuals that took a possibility on it the huge majority would

be singing its praises. Games, like other media, can be a number of things: thought-provoking, academic, competitive but most of all, in my mind a minimum of, they need to be enjoyable. And this is enjoyable in outright spades. I was a substantial fan of Destruction Derby (released 25 years earlier!) and this takes that idea to its logical conclusion. Don’t let the arcadey graphics deceive you however, beneath is a strong driving engine, and realistic physics(for a computer game)imply that all sorts of hilarity reign. , if you like driving games or multiplayer titles you would not regret selecting this up.. Inside (2016 )The designers managed to enhance on the timeless Limbo in every method. The way the story unfolds using show, don’t inform is magical. Tight gameplay
, fantastic looks and noise, an unnerving premise all wrapped up in a special environment make this a need to play. A video game that can be finished over several hours instead of weeks or months, it doesn’t outstay it’s welcome and in fact left me desiring more. It likewise left me scratching my head, but I’ll leave you to discover why. The Last Of United States Part 2(2020 )As good as it was controversial( in some quarters)this enhanced on the original in many methods and the story kept me pushing on to the bitter end

. Yes, in regards to gameplay it didn’t improve significantly on the original, however it was polished within an inch of its life. After at first playing it, I thought it was excellent however didn’t rather strike the heights of its predecessor however in retrospection I was most likely wrong, and I’m pleased to confess that it’s at least its equal. A work of art. Life Is Strange(2015)Another one that may not be on numerous people’s list, I would not have given this a 2nd glimpse if it wasn’t distributed as part of PlayStation Plus. I ‘d likewise heard it discussed favourably on these pages, so despite the fact that the

facility didn’t interest me I believed I ‘d give it a look. And I’m truly grateful I did. I was absorbed by the characters, the story and the play design. I’ve not truly proceeded with comparable video games such as Oxenfree, What Remains Of Edith Finch (see listed below ), and Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture(I actually can’t see the interest that one)however for some factor Life is Strange clicked with me in a big way. Unique mention must go to the soundtrack, which introduced me to some great tunes by Syd Matters.

Red Dead Redemption 2 (2018 )
Again, my original thoughts on this were that it wasn’t as good as the initial and I’m still in two minds about that looking back. It’s definitely puffed up and might have cut 20 hours and be a more structured experience, but I expect that was intentional, it was meant to be a slow-burner. In regards to the general feel and look of the title however, this game was unparalleled.

The Witcher 3 (2015 )
Won’t say much about this as I envision this will make everybody’s leading 10, and appropriately so. A high watermark for CD Projekt and hopefully they can recover from their present situation.

Super Mario Odyssey (2017 )
Just so much fun to play, with so many various concepts that are rejected as rapidly as they are adopted, entirely charming.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain (2015 )
I’m not a substantial Metal Gear fan, the plot and characters can stretch immersion a bit too far in some cases, but this title really grasped me. I didn’t feel it held true open world as other titles on this list are but it definitely shone in the gameplay stakes. An excellent video game.

Horizon Zero Dawn (2017 )
As a gaming community we’re all often too wed to the past, clamouring for sequels and remakes, so when a really brand-new IP comes along from an established studio backed by the platform holder it’s great when it comes off, and this undoubtedly did. An intriguing story, fantastic areas to check out, solid combat and breathtaking visuals, as new IPs this is among the very best this generation. And robotic dinosaurs!

Resident Evil 7 VR(2017) I’ve emphasised VR as otherwise Resident Evil 7 would most likely would miss out on out on this list. With PlayStation VR this is one on the most unforgettable and extreme gaming experience of my whole life. I remember the wonder of checking out the lands in Lords Of Midnight on the Spectrum in the mid-80s, being drawn into the world of Deus Ex in the 90s, and playing fully explorable cities in GTA 3 at the millenium and in regards to stand-out gaming minutes playing Resident Evil 7 in VR is right up there. At points it actually became incapacitating, I had to require myself to continue to the next location, while continually telling myself it was just a video game. It was too immersive! For anybody with access to a PlayStation VR headset provide this a go, you will not regret it. Well, you will, but in a good method.

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild (2017 )
I stated this list was in no specific order however that was a bit deceptive as I’ve purposely left the best to last. To me this is the finest video game of the generation and to my mind the very best video game of any generation. When it does you’ll not desire to leave, it may take a while to click however. The only game I’ve ever played 100+ hours in, two times. The very essence of a killer app, worth getting a Switch for this video game alone.

Just like the majority of people, I do have a stockpile of pity, so there are other video games I’ve got that I’ve either not began or not played enough to have an informed viewpoint on. I suspect a few of the following might have made this list if I ‘d played them thoroughly by now: Bloodborne, Divinity: Original Sin 2, Dead Cells, Metro Exodus, Ori And The Will Of The Wisps, Return Of The Obra Dinn, Dishonored 2, and Super Smash Bros.

Ultimate. There were other titles that I’ve played that have actually been highly praised somewhere else and although I could see the absolute quality in those video games for whatever reason they didn’t make the leading tier for me. Games such as Titanfall 2, What Remains Of Edith Finch, The Witness, and Uncharted 4 fall in that classification.
