RJMacReady's favorite game released this gen was not a game at all, but rather a life-changing peripheral: The Nintendo 3DS Circle Pad Pro

Super Mario Galaxy 1/2 and Portal 2 were easily the best games I played this generation but Skyward Sword was great, too.

Edit: I FORGOT XENOBLADE! Even though it was too long, it was the best RPG I played in years and deserves to be on this list. I also saw someone mention Metroid Prime Trilogy. If that counts (2 of the 3 games were last gen), I'd add that in too.
