Between June and August Amazon held a contest for the Greatest Game of the Generation, allowing consumers to vote on a pool of current-gen finalists. The winner? Well it seems the Amazon community voted for Bethesda’s Skyrim as their top pick.
Personally I’ve never got on well with Skyrim. It sits at the bottom of my gaming pile, gathering dust and remaining incomplete. Playing it on the PS3 was a buggy mess which came complete with regular crashes and glitches – this was something I was never going to put up with. So, to me this choice of game of the generation comes as quite a surprise. Then again, I find it really hard to pick an overall winner out from the finalists.
In second place was Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us which fared better in the contest than Uncharted 2. Red Dead Redemption was also regarded highly of in the community, you can read Aran’s Matter of Perspective of the game here.

Would you have picked Skyrim as your game of the generation? Or do one of the other finalists deserve the accolade?
