In just a few days as of this posting, the PlayStation 4 will be a thing you can buy, bringing about the first major generational shift for consoles since the release of the Xbox 360 eight years ago. With “next-gen” about to become “current-gen,” and “current-gen” poised to become another fond memory for gamers to get nostalgic about in a decade or so, we’ve dedicated the first half of this show to five games that may not have been the best or even most important, but that — for better or worse — defined the 360/PS3/Wii generation. And, sure, there’s also some talk about the PS4’s launch library, Call of Duty: Ghosts resolutions, and whether any of you are buying Activision’s flagship shooter this year.
Question of the Week
What’s the one game you think we should have included in the Top 5, but didn’t? (Not your favorite or the one you think is best, necessarily, but the one that defined this generation for you. And keep it to JUST ONE — we want this to be a little bit of a challenge.)
*NOTE* We’ve been getting some AMAZING donations lately but hardly anyone is attaching a name and the intended recipient of said donations. Please try to make note of which podcast the donation is going to so maybe we can get some new equipment and thank the right people for all their support. Seriously, the laptop we edit this show on is one choking breath away from combustion.
