It's really hard to say as there are many great games this generation, but when it comes down to it, against all odds, The Division 1 may have been my favorite game overall this generation. I have been thinking about it as I feel we come closer to the end of this gen. I've said it in the past elsewhere on here but considering it's an online-focused game where it pretty much wants you to play with others (as a person that doesn't really like playing online games much), I found myself putting in about 150 hours of the game since its release. 97 percent (I'm guessing that's about the right number) of that was mainly on my own, and I'm still playing it. I wouldn't quite argue it's the best game this generation, just (maybe) my favorite.
Despite its online-focus and repetitive optional missions when going through the main plot, I love the game. The atmosphere, music, and gameplay are all top-notch to me which puts it above most. While I could go for a deeper story and more in-depth characters, what is there is adequate to me. I really appreciate the many collectible story bits you can get as you explore. With The Division 2, I kind of don't expect the issues I have to be entirely fixed, but I can be surprised. I am really just hoping the things I liked about the first are also strong in the sequel, and it'd be nice if the issues I have with the first are improved.
I'm also curious (not sure if I had asked this before on here) whether there are any of you that live in or have been to Washington D.C. and are excited to see how its represented in The Division 2. The thing I love about the first is it's wintry New York setting, so I'm just hoping I don't mind the change of season and can appreciate what's there. I've never been to D.C. so since the games initial announcement I've been reading up and watching videos (as well as even Google imaging) D.C. on and off so I can compare and contrast.
What system do you plan on getting it on if you get it? I'm getting it on the Xbox One X. There are so many good (many of which are post-apocalyptic) games coming out this year, and it's hard to say what I'm most excited for.
