Is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim The Best Game Of The Generation?
This is bound to prompt some discussion, yes?
Amazon UK - or rather, Amazon UK's customers who participated in a recent poll - has selected the "greatest game of the current generation," and it's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
The poll in question asked gamers to vote between June 1 and August 4; there were 16 finalists separated into two brackets of eight each. In the final vote was Skyrim and Naughty Dog's latest masterpiece, The Last Of Us. We don't know how close the competition was because the site didn't release actual voting numbers, but Bethesda's epic open-world RPG won. The site did reveal, however, that TLoU and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves received more votes than all eligible Xbox 360 exclusive titles combined. Well...duh. That's not even counting Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Gran Turismo 5, God of War III, etc.
If you're wondering, the 16 finalists were: Batman: Arkham City, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, Grand Theft Auto IV, Mass Effect 2, Super Mario Galaxy, Portal 2, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Fallout 3, Far Cry 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Walking Dead, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and The Last Of Us. ...are there any 360 exclusives in there?
By the way, it's a crime that Uncharted 3 isn't. That's just wrong. Heavy Rain should've been there, too, although I'd have to say the overall crown goes to Uncharted 2.
