    Favourite? Impossible to choose between Bloodborne, Sekiro, Dark Souls 3 or Witcher 3. But probably Bloodborne.

    Actual generation defining game might be between Breath of The Wild or Witcher 3. You can see their influence in a lot of other games.

    Iíve got loads

    SP - God of war/ The last of us 2/ uncharted 4
    MP - Modern warface/warzone ironically the game isnít great but itís rekindled lots of gaming relationships I thought Iíd lost over the years
    VR - skyrim I just donít think Iíve had as much fun on a game in years

    Horizon 4 probably my favourite racing game of all time too
    Weíve been treated to some real gems this gen and itís just frustrating not everyone can appreciate them with the whole my console is better than yours etc etc

    Having a problem with Witcher 3 right now. I bought it on PS4 and played through most of it (left it in Skellige somewhere). Would like to go back and finish (and still could of course). The issue is that I never bought the DLC, and the two packs cost £20. Alternatively, I could buy the PC GotY edition for £10.49... but there's no cross-platform saving with the PS4, so I'd have to start again.

    @docrob Just finish the base game? It's easy to go back and do the DLCs later from your final save.

    Also from the menu it lets you play the dlc separately by creating a correct lvl character for the dlc. So complete the main game then do the dlc on pc.

    Rocket League - oved it so much I have it on PS4, Xbox and PC - originally a PS+ discovery as otherwise it wouldn't have interested me.

    Gears 4 and 5 - Truly showed what an exclusive could do on Xbox One

    Forza Horizon 4 - I dont't put loads of hours into racing games these days, but this is about the pinnacle of the genre IMO.

    Battlefield 4 - one of the earliest games I got for my launch PS4 and I loved it online. Pre-dates my boycott of everything EA about 12 months later.

    Destiny 1 - pains me this one as I hate so much about the game. I hate that there was no match making on the Raids, that there was so much story outside of the game, that is was so repetitive, the BS RNG mechanics etc. All that said, it looked great, was great fun, and Bungie are still masters of FPS gameplay. I put hours into it.

    Infamous Second Son - not perfect, but Ian early jaw-dropper visually and one of the few open world games I was compelled to complete.

    Mario 3D World (Wii U) - Mario greatness (don't have a switch so can't compare to Odyssey).

    The main other games that stand out would be remasters. For example, I loved Halo 4 (unpopular as that opinion is), and am currently playing the Last of Us Remastered.

    Yeah destiny are my most played games ever but I kind of hate them with a passion now and I would have never played so many hours with out meeting some great people raiding and carried on playing with them for months and months.

    Genuinely, No Manís Sky. For two reasons, firstly due to the sheer ambition of it and Hello Games response to the botched launch.

    But mainly because of the opening moments when you start the game and see your first planet for the first time - Iíve not felt that sense of awe and wonderment when playing a game since I was a kid. Admittedly the massive hype of the launch added to it but still, it was an incredible moment for me as a gamer.

    I feel I've missed a lot of what this gen has to offer, only picking up a PS4 last year and not really having much time to play that. I can spend the next few years catching up.

    But so far, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Hollow Knight both on Switch. Do they count?

    I also have pretty much the whole generation ahead of me as I am so far behind.
    So far:
    Bloodborne (even though I am near the start)
    Alien Isolation
    Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours

    But I have yet to play so much, including the Witcher 3.

    Three games. THREE.

    - Alien: Isolation
    - Titanfall 2
    - Control

    and Helldivers. Which makes THREE.

    Bloodborne, Dirt Rally 2 are the ones I can think of off the top of my head, I need to look back and see what I've played over the past 5 years!

    Tough one. stand out games for me on XB1 have been :

    Dirt Rally 1/2
    Project Cars 1/2
    Witcher 3
    Dishonoured 2
    Prey.

    Sniper elite 4 gets an honourable mention. I have a feeling TLOU2 would be in there if I had a PS4, and RDR2 maybe as well if I ever get really into it.

    Top 3 for me in no particular order:

    Botw
    Bloodborne
    Hollow Knight

    HK and BotW are probably in my favourite games of all time as well, along with Super Metroid, FFVII (original) and RE2 (both original and remake), ICO, Links Awakening, Majoras Mask, and Dark Souls.

    Bloodborne.
    Then DS3.
    Then the other souls games remastered.

    I find so many other games I just bounce off now and have done ever since the first release of Dark Souls.
