    I have over 800 hours on different characters, the shit is still not getting old . With the addition of the DLC many more hours to go . I agree its the best game this generation, The Last of Us is amazing but pretty boring on second playthrough, so does not come close IMO .

    I definitely think this poll got the Final Four correct. After that, it's really just personal preference. I would have take Uncharted 2 over Skyrim and TLoU over Uncharted 2, but with the depth of gameplay and the replayability of Skyrim, I can see how it won out in this poll.

    Skyrim is my most played game even though I've got the plat for it. Just go the dlc trophies to get and I'll carry on playing for many years to come.

    Skyrim is a great choice, I have no problem with that.

    Fallout 3 would be my second of these titles, although I could see how it falls due to some bug issues.

    Can't really agree with this, due to how badly made Skyrim is and how Bethesda is the best example of lazyness and mediocricy in the developer realm, but I can't really deny that seems a rather fitting list of games to play this generation (with a few exceptions).

    That's true, but some people consider the generation to be pretty much over anyway.

    Skyrim is definitely my favorite game of the generation, but after playing the PC version, I can see plenty of flaws in the game I didn't really see or pay attention to on the PS3 version. The frame issues on the PS3 version doesn't help anything either. Overall, the PC version is much better (besides the fact that you can add mods), and the gameplay and replayability are able to outweigh the flaws the game has, for the most part.

    Can't say for sure if I agree that it's the best game of the generation though, even though it is my favorite. That's only because I haven't played most of the games that it competed with on the poll. I guess it really just depends on what someone prefers.

    It's always a matter of personal taste. Still, can't say I diagree with the poll. I'd personally choose BioShock... But again, personal preference.

    No argument here, Skyrim is unmatched so far this gen, bugs or not, no experience has beaten it for me. The games that follow it however, are a tough bunch to separate.

    Like someone else mentioned - the generation is far from over - games like GTA5, and Metal Gear Solid 5 are still due out. Both of which will be heavy contenders more than likely.

    As far as Skyrim is concerned - as much as I love the game, I can't agree with it being "The best of this generation" - it's not much different from the previous entries - just prettier and with a bit more freedom. Games like Journey and The Last of Us have done more in terms of showing that games don't have to be mindless. You can have an experience in there and it can still be fun.

    And again - the generation isn't over yet - it's still too soon, really, to crown anything like that.

    ^ This...and the same for every other Elder Scrolls game. I tried to like them...it just wasn't possible.

    On a happier note, 3 Sony exclusives are in that list.

    And those 3, alongside Mario Galaxy, are the only exclusives. Talks well about the PS3's library, even if one isn't a fan of a few of them.

    Not really, seeing as its just the same 10min experience multiplied x10000

    Enter cave/dungeon/building/whatever, kill dudes, pick up object, rinse and repeat.

    Not to mention it played like I shoved a pancake in my disc tray.
