Where does The Last of Us rank for this generation?

106 replies 1813 views Edited Jun 24, 2013
We've seen a lot of amazing games come and go this generation, but where exactly does the The Last of Us rank? Is it the best game of this generation? I think it definitely deserves some thought. Some of the technical issues broke the immersion at times, but the game is so masterfully made that you look over those things. The story and characters are amazing, and the world is absolutely beautiful. Naughty Dog has proved to me that they are, without a shadow of a doubt, one of THE best developers in the entire industry. ND and Rockstar Games are the best at what they do in my opinion, and that is make excellent games, that are beautiful crafted from top-to-bottom.

Personally, The Last of Us is definitely in my top three. If I HAD to rank my top five, they would go accordingly.

1. Red Dead Redemption
2. The Last of Us
3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
4. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4
5. Fallout 3

What do you guys think? Is it the best game of this generation? Where would you rank it?

I honestly dont think i could do individual games where every game in that games series was just as good. 

 

1: Uncharted Series

2: Last of Us
3: Bioshock Series

4: Metal Gear Solid Series

5: Borderlands 2(i could do that one mainly because it was such and improvement for the original that i cant even play the original anymore.)

^ This is actually a great list.

CoD4 belongs on a list, because that game pretty much saved (and blew up) the CoD franchise.

It wasn't exactly the CoD people know today, until that game came along. I loved it. And no CoD game has given me the same feeling that one did, before and after. (Story and MP)

 

I'd also say "Splinter Cell: Conviction" belongs somewhere on a list of games for this generation (as well as "Gears of War.")

 

 

 

For my top 5, I'd say:

1. Red Dead Redemption

2. The Last of Us

3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

4. Deadly Premonition (Director's Cut or Normal, doesn't matter.)

5. Tomb Raider

 

 

Hard choice to make, but these 5 immediately came to mind, because of their great story telling and gameplay.

And keep in mind, "this generation" isn't even over yet.

Get RDR the **bleep** off that list or at least 1st place. It ain't got **bleep** on The Last of Us.

 

The Last of Us is easily the best game I've ever played.

 

Edit: I don't hate on RDR, I just don't think it's worthy of Top 5. Problem? Not mine.

And by the time you're done reading this, you'll realize that this is just my sig

The Last of Us is great but if its truly the best game you have ever played I dont know if I should pity you or admire your ignorance.
