In a matter of days, Nintendo will kick off the eighth console generation and a new generation of games. We can expect even more speculation about what the PS4 and Durango/XBox 720 will bring to the table. As the 7th generation enters its twilight years, the inevitable "Greatest Games of the Generation" lists will start emerging from various websites, featuring an entirely predictable onslaught of Fallout, Gears of War, Uncharted, Red Dead Redemption, Call of Duty, and Mario Galaxy. We've seen these lists before and they serve no purpose other than to fan the flames of fanboyism; "Why is GTA IV so high on the list?!?!?!"
So my question is, what about the also-rans? Games that were incredibly good, but got lost between critical acclaim and user consumption? Games that didn't have $50 M+ of development cost, but deserve to be experienced by every gamer nonetheless? List 5 to 10 of your favorite hidden gems from this generation!
