Let’s take a look at the best of the new-genertaion before Destiny and the Master Chief Collection dethrone them all in just a few weeks.
We’re closing in on a full year since the the release of the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, and almost two years since the WiiU’s release. With multiple developers planning on abandoning the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 next year, gamers should be ready and excited to fully immerse themselves within the new-generation.
Each console holds some charm with the exclusive games available to them right now. The Xbox One will be looking forward to an influx of exclusives coming soon, and the Playstation 4 will certainly benefit from the remakes and returning franchises to the platform. Even with its early struggles the WiiU has amassed a respectable library to choose from.
So what games are best on each system?
Xbox One – Titanfall
An incredible unique approach to the FPS genre, Titanfall brought the Xbox One its first must-have game. The revolution it has brought to terrain traversal can not be downplayed. Though it lacked a true story to play through, the gameplay in the multiplayer steers clear of growing too repetitive and Respawn’s utilization of Microsoft’s servers create a reliable multiplayer that rarely has its service interrupted. With the twists that Respawn instilled over the core FPS gameplay and online-centric experience, Titanfall is surely the best game on Xbox One right now.
WiiU – Mario Kart 8
With 2.82 million copies sold in its first month available, it would be a crime to not consider Mario Kart 8 the WiiU’s best game. Many would call it the console’s most important game. Over three times as many consoles were sold within the fiscal quarter that Mario Kart 8 was released (relative to the same quarter of the previous year). The sales are with good reason though. The 1080p; 60 FPS gameplay along with the new additions such as anti-gravity transitions the game brings the core experience new life while maintaining the classic feel.
Playstation 4 – The Last of Us: Remastered
The Last of Us was already an incredible game on the Playstation 3, but when players were able to get their hands on the ‘remastered’ version, there was good reason to get excited for the adventure again. The dark and grim setting is brought to life with remarkable visual upgrades. Naughty Dog’s inclusion of a photo-mode helps players appreciate the scenery even more. While the world alone is something to marvel at, the narrative that occurs within takes players on an incredible journey despite the game not being initially designed for the new-generation of consoles.
