What were the best games of this generation?

The end of the Xbox 360/PS3 era is nearly upon us. If I had to pick one game that embodied the generation, which one would it be?

That was (more or less) the question posed to me (and many other Australian games writers and luminaries) by Kotaku’s Mark Serrels.
So I sat, and I thought.
I pondered the possibilities, rejected the nearly-rans, and came up with what (for me, because this was personal) was the best possible answer. The eventual article is a lengthy read, and it went up while I was taking a necessary personal break, but it’s still well worthwhile reading.
So go and read it now!

  1. Without picking one specific game, what I will say is that this generation has been brilliant for games for creating a whole new category of game – the mid-budget arthouse game. Suddenly it’s been possible for teams of 10 or so to make very creative games which still have decent presentation – Rain, Journey, the just-released Contrast, Papo & Yo, and so on and so forth.
    More than the AAA-grade stuff that’s what’s been holding my attention this generation.
