Which are your best memories from the 7th gen?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Which are your best memories from the 7th gen?

Console wars was 2006.... Best year in gaming for obvious reasons.

Personal gaming memory: Playing Gears of War 1 online and playing 3 vs 3 in Halo Wars with my cousins.


Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

For me best memories are from these games. Outside events dont effect me much. This list might be a little long.

Gonna expand a little bit:
- Playing MK Wii with my mom and my uncle every monday for a few years straight. Had to buy another copy of the game since the one I bought back in 2009 got damaged after so much use.
- Super Smash Bros. Brawl story mode set a standard for me. Thing was so damn epic, Final Boss and ending was amazing in almost every possible way.
- Terraria. Despite basically being a 2D Minecraft, I had a lot of fun with this one. The best things was that I made my house in the very place I started, and what started as a tiny wood house ended up as an overly epic multi-room castle fortress that no invasion could take down.
- Max Payne 3 on PC on Ultra, 1080p@60FPS. I don't care what anyone says about the story, the characters, etc. The mechanics were absolutely outstanding and the visuals were some of the best I've seen in my short gaming life.

Great game. I ended up connecting the ocean to the underworld through a complex system of caves, channels, underwater cross overs and giant stair cases. All before I had any equipment to breathe underwater, fall without damage etc. Then I found out the game generates infinite water as long as you connect a long enough stretch together and I managed to flood the entire underworld. Weirdly as soon as you get on site it starts evaporating rapidly, but slow enough to get to a safe spot to mine the good stuff.

I was going to comment how young you were when you got the Wii, but I just realized I was almost 13 when I got mine, and I joined the site around the release of Mario Galaxy 1. Now I'm 20..... dang.....

Hangout with many PlayStation®Home lovers friends and having lots of fun glitching almost everyday back in 2009 to 2011... Although getting tired of it and quit 2 years ago but still can remember all the great memories during that time... 

There are so many!

1. Getting a DS in 2006 with New Super Mario Bros. After playing the Super Mario Bros. games, it felt really refreshing at the time.
2 Getting a Wii in 2007 and enjoying the hell out of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
3. Picking up Super Mario Galaxy and repeatedly saying "wow." One of my favorite games of all time.
4. Daily checking up on the Smash Bros. Dojo site to see each new announcement for SSBB and later getting SSBB day of launch and playing for 6 hours when I got home.
5. Getting a PS3 Christmas of 2009 with Uncharted 2. I will never forget Uncharted 2's opening scene, it still a
amazes me to this day.
6. Picking up Metroid Prime Trilogy and experiencing the genius of Metroid Prime for the first time.

I feel these are the main points. I am trying to think if there are some other very notable points.Those that stick out the most would definitely be Twilight Princess, Super Mario Galaxy, Uncharted 2, and Super Smash Bros Brawl. That span from 2007 to 2008 was just amazing.

Still for me the 7th gen is not over yet. Still need to play Xenoblade Chronicles along with some other Wii and PS3 games I still need to pick up. The 7th generation is going to be hard to beat...

Currently Playing: Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Super Smash Bros for Wii U


Super Mario Galaxy will pass Super Mario 64 in total sales CORRECT!

My best memory from 7th gen was hands down playing Uncharted 2 and kicking ass online with a friend. It was so much fun because we would do the pump taunt to mess with people, and we would try to kill eachother on co-op mode with grenades so that when we were in the heal state we would pump straight to the face of the character haha.


God of War 3: just the whole game, despite the gore and general angryness of Cratos... 

Uncharted 2/3/TLOU: Wow just wow as well...

Wipeout HD: 1080p 60FPS sci-fi racing goodness! still one of my fav racer!

Pixel junk games: addictive little gems!

The early years of the Wii. Super Mario Galaxy, Twilight Princess, Resident Evil 4 (hadn't played it before), mario Strikers Charged, Metroid Prime 3, heck even Wii Sports surprised me in fantastic moments. 2008 wasn't as packed with big games, but then we had Brawl and MKWii (though I was disappointed after the perfect MKDS). Look at that list and compare it to the Wii U's first year. This was before Nintendo casualised their fanbase (Skyward Sword is an exception). Wii U and the rest of 8 gen consoles hasn't entertained me anywhere as much as the 7th gen. Hope it starts do do that soon.
