The transition to a new console generation gives us many reasons to be excited about the future of gaming. However, as we anticipate what lies ahead, we should also pay our respects to the current-gen games that brought us to this point.

But here, we're singling out the best of the best; read on to see our for the top contenders across various categories and genres. Whether you want to find a hidden gem you missed or just reminisce about your favorites, these are the games that shaped the generation.

The top tier games are tdf. Its too hard to choose one from them. But honestly if i ahd to choose one then it would be Breath of the Wild. This is the 3rd time that I am replaying the game these days and it still continues to surprise me. The game design, the word it self and the amount of content the game offers is mind boggling.

In my opinion Horizon zero dawn deserves a place in top tier, story driven and intense action categories. The story is so ahead off in all its entirety.
True that... I really really enjoyed Horizon... I dont think i have ever come across a game that does ranged combat that superbly the way Horizon did. The tension in that combat design is unreal. Not to mention i think its still one of the best looking games I have ever played.

And I wish I could play Zelda. :/
Dude you have to... This is coming from someone who's not even a big Zelda fan. This is the only Zelda game that I have completed in the 3-4 total Zelda games that I have ever played. And this is the 3rd time that I am playing the game again. Every other Zelda game that I played I couldnt even get half way through them and got bored.

Oh, about Horizon...it is easily among the top 5 stories and open-world games for me. Great (ranged) combat and a beautiful world as well.

Guess I'll get a Switch at some point just for this game. I've never played a Zelda game but all the praise for this one and from what I've seen of the game myself, I've thought of getting a Switch many times. Maybe soon.

Horizon is in the best open world category, if not in the top tier, at least so it has been represented here.

For a new IP, Horizon is an incredible technical/artistic achievement and Guerilla should be commended for ditching lulzone for it.

The wait for Forbidden West is killer !
