We're reaching the end of this console cycle. In the next couple of months, we'll have our grubby hands on some new consoles, either the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X or be perfectly content with our gaming rigs or Nintendo Switches. It's hard to believe it's been seven years since PlayStation 4 and Xbox One released. In that time, we've played numerous games and have probably played some gems and some real stinkers. There's also probably some we've missed or have yet to play. For me, those are Horizon Zero Dawn and finishing God of War. I'll probably play those after I finish Ghost of Tsushima. So, let's see what our top 5 games of the generation are. I'm not going to count games I haven't finished (yet). So Ghost of Tsushima is out for me, as is God of War. 1. Red Dead Redemption II - At first I didn't care for this game. It was a little too realistic for my tastes, with inventory management, maintaining your horse, guns, appearance, etc. At first, Arthur Morgan was a poor substitute for John Marston. But, I kept playing. Now, when I think of Red Dead, Arthur comes to mind. I'm not an emotional person, but I was depressed when I finished this game. A true testament to the world Rockstar created and the characters they brought to life. 2. Days Gone - A lot of people poo-pooed this game. I did at first too. But underneath some repetitive game mechanics is a good story of a biker trying to survive in a hostile environment. There's also some really intense horde battles in this game. 3. Spider-Man - I had an absolute blast playing this game. On my 55" OLED and PS4 Pro, webslinging to the roof of the tallest buildings in New York and looking across the horizon was awe inspiring. The combat was also fun and the actors that brought the characters to life did an amazing job. 4. Super Mario Odyssey - The capture mechanic was cool as hell, as was having the ability to stomp around as a T Rex. The random 2D sections that popped up were cool as well. 5. Mad Max - Like Days Gone, a lot of people dismissed this game as very repetitive. I had fun. Fun vehicular combat and upgrade options, exploration and a cool sidekick in the form of Chumbucket. Like I said, this list is tentative for now, and will most likely change when I get done with Ghost of Tsushima. So, what say you? What are your top five games for the console generation (for now)?
