Really fun battles and the angriest protagonist in JRPG history

Oddworld Abe's Oddessey - Fart mapped to square button

Metal Gear Solid - revolutionary game, fantastic boxart

PS2 GotG: Persona 4

Stupidly addictive

Notable mentions:

Jak & Daxter: Precursor's Legacy - Naughty Dog's true masterpeice

Ico - Timeless and unique

PS3 GotG: Valkyria Chronicles

Perfect gameplay and battle system, gripping story and beautiful art direction. By far the best game of last generation.

Notable mentions:

Heavy Rain - Only game that has made me feel bad about shooting someone in the head

Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time - The best R&C game

PS4 - Haven't got one yet but probably Persona 5 :P

PS1: Final Fantasy VII. No other game has influenced that generation as much as this one. I don't like it as much as I used to, but I still see it as the game of its gen because of that undeniable impact, not because it's the game I liked most (which it isn't).

PS2: Gran Turismo 4. My most played game on the PS2 and the peak of the series so far. It did everything exceptionally well and was approachable in its presentation. To this day, this is the most polished entry in the series by far, even if the newer games included more features.

PS3: The Last of Us. Most mature game I've played. And by mature, I mean in the true meaning of the word. No other game has ever impacted me as much as this one.

PS4: So far, I have to go with The Witcher 3. That game is such a leap above every other games of its type when it comes to the writing of each of its elements. Most other games of its kind should take notes and inspirations from this one. Especially when it comes to side-quest design.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Missed a lot from each generation that's why I like Remastered, HD rerelease and PS classic. I feel like I got to play a lot more. Or else my list will mostly only feature Tekken :P

PS1: Crash Bandicoot 2 - While FF7 is great, FF9 as well, Vagrant Story too, Devil Dice..., it's Crash 2 (not 1 or 3) that I'd say is truely 'that good'. There are loads here though, too many great games.
PS2: FF12 - Not as FF as I'd like but dang was it a well made great game. KH2 a close second.
PS3: WipeOut HD. Now we struggle because honestly, I don't think the generation had that many great games, none that truely stood out for me. Yet I'd say I had most fun with WipeOut HD. Mentions for Uncharted 2 and Super Stardust HD.
PS4: Bloodborne and I think this has been decided now when we still have much of the gen left. It's that good of a game.

Hmm, pie.
