Re: Best Games of this Generation
Very surprised to see Dragon's Dogma on there. It was good, and it was a really fresh take on the RPG, and the pawn system was just inspired. But....
Part of my prejudice may be that I got to the Dragon Boss (the first one) and after a full hour, I only had his health down by one third. Traded it the next day. Got it free on PS+ this month so maybe I will revisit it sometime.

Mount and Blade is definitely this generation, and is one of the loves of my life. What a mix of strategy, role playing, and first person combat! Incredible. Everybody should play this game to see what it is about. It is absolutely epic in every sense of the word. Do you remember reading about the Siege of Minas Tirith in LotR? This game makes you feel like that.
