Puzzle Quest is an inspired choice. Wouldn't have thought of that, but it absolutely deserves a spot on my own list.

You are a monster, sir.

It's good to see Hot Pursuit getting some love. That game brought me back to playing Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed on Christmas morning. Didn't leave my console for a solid three weeks after purchase, and that's without any friends list to compete with.

Great marketing ploy, telling people not to look drives people to want to look even more.

Which is more awkward, me looking at this list or me walking in on you changing?

Say, what's going on over h... oh.

Oh, my.

Aww yeah, peeking at lists.

I feel like Battlefield 2 came out decades ago.

I'm sorry I peaked :'(

Any resources you used to help make this list?

Edited by StarFoxA

Those are some nice video games you got there.

Good lord what a hard list to make, i'd say the hardest

Posted by jsnyder82

Yay, Shadow Complex! Still the best XBLA game I've ever played.

Edited by Winternet

Well, I just looked at it. What you gonna do about it?

Where the fuck is Dark Souls, I refuse to acknowledge this list!

Edited by dr_mantas

That's already a mighty fine list.

Posted by TheManWithNoPlan

Pretty nice. A fair amount of these are on my list too.

Yeah, I know. It was mid-2005 though, so it makes the cut as far as I'm concerned.

The games I own.

So many games to recall. I wouldn't even know where to start a list like this.

Posted by AssInAss

I looked! Now I've turned into stone!

So, basically, for game of the generation, I should be looking from 2005, right? Is that whne 360/PS3 started?

I've got tons of indie games that are popping to the top of my head.

Posted by Tireyo

I looked anyway, and I see nothing wrong with this list.

I hope you add some text explaining your choices once the list is finalized

Posted by meaninoflife42

Oops, I looked...

Edited by Budwyzer

No FTL?

No Plants vs Zombies? Or Peggle?

No Trenched?

I have the top 3 on this list and didn't finish any of them. I think they're just over-hyped and popping into peoples' minds.

Posted by zeekthegeek

Lococycle still hasn't dropped and that's on 360.

Posted by The7thDraconian

Personally I would've put Borderlands 2 instead of Borderlands 1, but that's just me. The rest of this list is very good.

Edited by Quantris

Reaching back a ways, but Elite Beat Agents / Ouendan would make my version of this list. One or another of those games was in my DS / DS lite for a solid three years.

Posted by DancDanc

You know what? This list will be fine as long as Mass Effect 2 is first. I've play most of those, and ME2 is still tops. And Dragon Age Origins!

Oh man this type of list would be so hard to narrow down. Although not sure if you have any of these games seeing as that is your major criteria. FEZ, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Braid, Geometry Wars, and Dark Souls.

All games I can appreciate (and actually own), but just didn't really click with me enough to be on this list. The intricacies of Fez are fascinating, but I just didn't like actually playing it that much. XCOM was fun but I had no affinity for the franchise going in, so I think that's part of the reason I didn't like it as much as others. For whatever reason, I just never finished Braid. Despite my best efforts, I have always been embarassingly awful at Geometry Wars. And I've seen enough Dark Souls to know it's not really for me.

Love your decision to include PoP on this list. To me, it was severely underrated from character development and story perspective and really was one of my favourite games of the generation. Really bummed there will never be a resolution to the story...

Posted by BitterAlmond

Nice call on Puzzle Quest. I sank many hours into the DS version of the game about five years ago.
