Let The Games Begin!


Welcome to bracket three, people. The Defining Video Game of the Previous Generation bracket has begun. We are talking about games released on X-BOX 360, Playstation 3, Wii, and other platforms between 2005 and 2013. We're looking for games that define the generation. What does that mean? You decide.

We could be talking about the most sophisticated shooter. or the most meticulously constructed world or dazzling graphics or more immerse gaming experiences or games that revolutionized how we consume or buy games. Everything is possible. We could even be talking about negative aspects. During this generation, did games try too hard to be movies with minimal gameplay? Was this the generation of Quicktime events? Was this the generation of over-hyped releases? Was this the generation of bleeding the consumers dry with micro-transactions and unnecessary peripherals? What this generation really just a retread of actually innovative ideas from the X-BOX/Playstation 2/Gamecube generation? Again, you decide.

How do you decide? You vote. Cast your votes weekly with our new voting app. (It was fabulously created by friend of the show Caroline Amaba. Here is a link to her website. Give her props.) You can follow the bracket out at our bracket page. You can even listen to our most recent podcast to see exactly how we constructed the bracket and subscribe to listen to us make sense of the voting. Like us on Facebook and Twitter for more updates.

Game on!
