20 Games To Play Before The Next Generation

Xbox-360-PS3

The current generation had a rocky start with issues such as the red ring of death on the 360 and the lack of games and decent ports for the PS3. This all changed shortly after with Microsoft making changes to their newer 360 model and more developers finding ways to work with the PS3’s complicated system architecture.

Some of the best games ever have been released in the past 5 years and they absolutely cannot be ignored. With the current generation of game consoles coming to a close, I thought I’d make a list of games/games series that one simply must play before even considering buying a PS4 or Xbox One!

These are the games I’ve enjoyed the most from this generation. There are more but I think these will seem more appealing to the casual gamer as some of the more hardcore games require a lot more time to be invested.
