I agree with pretty much everything that was mentioned above. One thing that I would like to note is that it is amazing how under appreciated the N64 was considering it has at least 5 games that come to mind that rank as some of the greatest games of all time and it didn't have anything even close on the competition during its generation. (mario 64, goldeneye, Ocarina, Banjo, Perfect Dark) 

If I limit it to this generation. The first year I had the 360 Gears of war 1 blew me away to where I couldn't put it down for months. The story was adequate, but the game play and level design was in a world of its own. Then the following year the first Bioshock game came out. The imagination and the originality of the storyline makes it one of the best games of all time. The first Assassins Creed game would also make my list. Its too bad the sequels of all three of those games were pretty much just lesser efforts clones of the originals that didn't add much of anything new.

Did you just claim Assassins Creed was better than its sequel. Assassin's Creed 2 is the superior game so says everyone.

My best single player experience probably Mass Effect 1 & 2. Which I am including as one game because i played the two very close to each other also decisions in the first game carry over to the second. Now why is it my best single player experience firstly because they are many different ways to do levels which is one of the best things about interactive storytelling. Also the gameplay in the 2nd one (the superior of the two games) is very good almost as good as other third person shooters such as Gears.

Metal Gear Solid 4, nuff' said.

I'd have to say Final Fantasy IX, I can't describe how much I love that game. This gen only, probably MGS4; incredible game, too quickly forgotten about this gen and the ending was sensational.

This gen im stuck between 2 :P either FFXIII for the best champaign (waits to get shot :D) the the game play left a little to be desired the worlds you visited where a thing of beauty and the characters grew on me :3 except Vanille >_> grrrr or MGS$. Do i rly need to explain mgs4? rly? no didnt think so ;). My all time favourite would be Persona 4! I loved that game so much >.<

Very difficult question. There is not just one game I can really pick. Right now if I had to pick a game, I would say it is a toss-up between Final Fantasy 8, Skies of Arcadia, and Xenogears.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

OP, let me add that heavy Rain made me feel the same way at the time, too.  That part where those guys attacked Maddison in her apt. was so intense and scary, the first time I played through it that I instantly came on this site and posted that it was the most incredible gaming moment, ever.  I can agree with you on the quality of Heavy Rain, buddy.

MGS 4 since that's the only MGS I have played. The best single player game I have played.

Heavy Rain really is an amazing and unique experience...and the soundtrack is pure epicness
