Memory is a funny thing. We remember the pointless and the mundane, and we wonder…what the hell do I remember that for?
But for the most part, we tend to remember the amazing moments in video games. Many older gamers say their best memories are all in the past; the first time they saw Super Mario Bros. , the dogs jumping through the window in Resident Evil , those crazy Atari Jaguar commercials on TV, etc. But this generation, what would you say are the truly memorable games? The ones you know have had a lasting impact and you will always remember, if only for one or two heart-stopping moments?
For me, I think the list would have to include Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception , Heavy Rain , Metal Gear Solid: Guns of the Patriots , Portal 2 , all the Assassin's Creed titles (with the possible exception of Revelations ), Red Dead Redemption , L.A. Noire , Grand Theft Auto IV , Journey , Joe Danger , Echochrome , and to some extent, both Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2 . But there's no guarantee that all of them will remain and endure…I wonder which ones will stick as the years go by?
Which games do you think you'll always remember from this generation?
