Top 10 of Last Generation #10
Gaming has come a long way since the days of the Commodore 64, the Colecovision, the NES and the Dreamcast. If you grew up playing games from these generations long passed you likely feel an overwhelming strike of nostalgia when you think back to them. For a whole new generation, they’re able to look back on the games from last generation with a certain amount of reverence and we thought it would be fun to get some of the COGconnected team on board for their own top ten of last gen. 12 members of COGconnected assembled all their top ten games from the era of the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the Wii. We’re going to count them all down over the next 10 days beginning now, obviously, with number 10! See who you match up with in the great Top 10 of Last Gen Countdown!
Shawn Petraschuk (Executive Editor) – Bulletstorm
Bulletstorm was amazing for so many different reasons. The absolutely crass humor, the over-the-top kills, and the fantastic Steve Blum voiced lead character, Grayson Hunt. The ‘Skillshot’ system was a ton of fun and encouraged me to murder my enemies in ever more inventive ways. It was pretty easy on the eyes for its generation as well. What surprises me is how it ended up being such a failure for People Can Fly and Epic. Obviously, it built up a bit of a cult following because gamers seem genuinely excited that a remastered version is on its way. You can count me among them!
Trevor Houston (Executive Editor) – Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock
Warriors of Rock is easily the most underrated Guitar Hero game of all time. It is unfortunate it didn’t do as well as it should have. By the time Warriors of Rock was released Guitar Hero was plagued with franchise fatigue. People were done with those plastic guitars. The excitement was over. It’s too bad because Warriors of Rock was amazing boasting a massive set list and it pushed the franchise the furthest it had gone.
