Top Ten Best Games from the 8th Generation of Gaming

The Top Ten

1 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

6th gen had Shadow of the Colossus, 7th gen had The Last of Us, now we have this. The Witcher 3 is literally perfect - nothing more, nothing else.

This game is just perfect, simple as that

It is the best. Story, characters, gwests, gameplay, open world... everything is amazing in this game.

2 Fallout 4

First game that really grabbed me in this generation.

First game I bought. Witcher 3 is also as good.

3 Super Mario Maker

The best game ever
