The most popular video games released on the Wii, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo DS, and Playstation Portable.

The Top Ten

1 The Last of Us

I'm posting this in 2019 and the Last of Us still has the greatest video game story of all time. The characters are so well realised, the dialogue sticks in your head thanks to the great writing and masterful voice acting plus it's insanely emotional and shocking sometimes. That ending is just perfect as well.

This game has the best story of any video game to date. It can make you cry many times during the game. Whether it was at he beginning, the giraffes, Sam, or what happened to Joel. It is a complete thrill ride the entire way through from beginning to end.

By far, this game is a masterpiece! Thank you Naughty Dog!

Better than (insert your favorite thing ever)

2 Bioshock Infinite


In all its glory, behold the city of Columbia! Don't look down! I want a skyline for Christmas! Just an awesome game!

The 2nd best bioshock game

Best FPS in gaming's history. Thrilling combat, unique setting, intriguing story that takes more than one playthrough to grasp, and the most balanced difficulty ever in 1999 mode.

3 Bioshock

Bioshock was a very interesting game when it came out. There was nothing Quite like it ever whether it was movies or books, this is a completely unique game that made nearly everyone that play it fall in love with it. It has the best gameplay in any video game made and the plasmids are crazy awesome. It has since then changed gaming for good. Rapture is also one of the best settings of any game made. A CITY IN THE WATER HOW COOL IS THAT!

It's simply the greatest video game experience of the past 7 years.

4 Super Mario Galaxy 2
5 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Morrowind is one of the best games ever created and not many RPGs can beat it. Oblivion came out but it wasnt as good and now people are waiting to see what the new Elder Scrolls can bring us. Skyrim is a perfect example of what fantasy games should be. The magic elements and shouts are awesome and completely op. The games main focus is the gameplay and just how fun it is. The game doesn't need good grahics or a good story to be good. It also had gamebreaking glitches and the leveling system could make anyone have the best armour in the game in just 2 hours. But despite the major flaws of the game the good things overcome the bad. Skyrim is nearly better than Oblivion but no RPG will ever beat MORROWIND.

6 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Uncharted 2 is a completely badass game ranging from an awesome soundtrack to having a kickass storyline. The end boss fight at the fountain of youth is one of the best boss fights ever and is completely satisfying when you win.

Best game's also best game of the ps3.

7 Batman: Arkham City

Best game of all time!

8 Mass Effect 2

Mass Effect 2 is a completely immersive game that can draw anyone in. The squadmates you carry along with you on your journey are awesome too. The space and sci-fi themes to it make it one of the best sci-fi games to date and can compete with Halo. The ending is completely awesome and can make you cringe hoping your friends wont die and see them fight with you against the reapers.

9 Grand Theft Auto V

Hello neighbor just called and told him that they had him there so they don’t want me in a rush."

This game is ' awesome! No wonder so many people have it!

This should be higher-it is an amazing game

10 Portal 2

The Contenders

11 Halo 3

Halo 3 is easily the best FPS of the seventh gen of gaming. The multiplayer is the best I've seen of any game and is even better than Halo 2's multiplayer. The campaign is epic too. While it may not be as good as Halo 2 it is still an awesome game.

This and Call of Duty: black ops are the best first-person shooter games on the Xbox 360!


12 Red Dead Redemption

This game has the best ending to any game ever made. IT has the saddest death of any character in the history of games and anyone that doesn't at least feel bad have no soul. The story and gameplay is some of the best I have ever seen and this game definitely has a chance of being in the top 10 for best games ever made.

Inarguably the greatest western video game ever made, arguably the greatest western anything of the 21st. century. Tight gameplay, still looks gorgeous, atmospheric soundtrack, the list goes on.
The open world feels truly alive, being the size of the Netherlands, and has massively varying terrain including prairies, plains, Redwood-like forests and Monument Valley-like rocks.
The themes of the dying west are perfectly shown, through not only the story, but also gameplay. As you progress, you go from six-shooters and Winchesters, to semi-auto pistols and bolt action rifles.
The characters feel human and real. The writing sounds genuine, and you're never bored with a cut-scene or conversation
Only problem being that the game isn't avaviable for pc. Oh yeah, and that The Marstons are deadly allergic to water above the pate.

Rockstar's Masterpiece

13 Mario Kart Wii

This game is so fun to play with family and friends! My favorite courses are coconut mall and rainbow road!

14 Super Mario Galaxy
15 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
16 Fallout 3

Falllout 3 brings nearly everything right. The setting, graphics, gameplay, story, you name it. The side quest are satisfying and the inclusion of some companions to help you out are great additions. The leveling system is fantastic too. Every time you kill an enemy, complete a quest, or discover a location you level up and can choose a perk to help you on your journey. Just the setting can leave your jaw dropped. The momment you step out of the vault it is breathtaking. VATS is really cool too and something we've never seen before.

17 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
18 Super Smash Bros Brawl
19 Borderlands 2
20 Team Fortress 2
21 Metroid Prime Trilogy
22 Gears of War
23 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Why isn't this at number 1? Its such a good game

Metal Gear Solid is the best stealth genre to date and everyone was waiting for a sequel to MGS 2 to finally be able to play as Solid Snake again after the backlash MGS2 got. Well we can rejoice cause the game is awesome. The stealth mechanics in this game are some of the best ever and just expands on the previous installments. The story is really good too and the final boss fight is amazing when you finally fight ocelot for the last time after so long. The ending is extremely sad too and is one of the best endings ever to a game.

24 Half-Life 2
25 New Super Mario Bros.
26 Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep
27 The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
28 Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
29 Assassin's Creed II

One of the most beautiful games of the 7th generation. The visuals are fantastic and the amount of detail is just fascinating. An engaging and emotional story with a marvellous main character. The setting of renaissance Italy is just mesmerising. This will always be one of my top 3 favourite games of all time. Requiscat in pace Ezio, the best master assassin of all time!
