Top Ten Best Games from the 8th Generation of Gaming

The Top Ten

1 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Immersion at its finest

The best game of all time

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
