This is bound to prompt some discussion, yes?
Amazon UK – or rather, Amazon UK's customers who participated in a recent poll – has selected the "greatest game of the current generation," and it's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim .
The poll in question asked gamers to vote between June 1 and August 4; there were 16 finalists separated into two brackets of eight each. In the final vote was Skyrim and Naughty Dog's latest masterpiece, The Last Of Us . We don't know how close the competition was because the site didn't release actual voting numbers, but Bethesda's epic open-world RPG won. The site did reveal, however, that TLoU and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves received more votes than all eligible Xbox 360 exclusive titles combined. Well…duh. That's not even counting Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception , Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots , Gran Turismo 5 , God of War III , etc.
If you're wondering, the 16 finalists were: Batman: Arkham City , Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare , Bioshock , Bioshock Infinite , Grand Theft Auto IV , Mass Effect 2 , Super Mario Galaxy , Portal 2 , Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots , Fallout 3 , Far Cry 3 , The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim , The Walking Dead , Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and The Last Of Us . …are there any 360 exclusives in there?
By the way, it's a crime that Uncharted 3 isn't. That's just wrong. Heavy Rain should've been there, too, although I'd have to say the overall crown goes to Uncharted 2 .
