While everyone is looking forwards to the upcoming launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, we’ve decided to celebrate the current generation by looking at some of the very best games it had to offer and pitting them against each other in a battle royale-style vote off.
We’ve rounded up all of the very best games from the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, ranging from phenomenal reboots of classic franchises such as God of War and Call of Duty, to surprise new IPs that have since grown to become platforms in their own right, including Overwatch and Fortnite.

But, which is THE game that made the generation? This is a question that has been causing quite a lot of tension in the Trusted Reviews office over the last few weeks with every editor and writer having their own take on which game is most worthy of the title.
So, after more blue-faced arguments and NERF duels than we care to admit having, the team at Trusted Reviews has decided it’s time to end the war and let you – yes you – our beloved readers decide which title is most worthy of the accolade: Game of the Generation.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be running a battle royale campaign where 32 games will go head to head over five rounds in a public vote. The final entry left standing will then earn the title, Game of the Generation.
The voting is now live for the first two groups. In Group A you can choose between God of War, Dishonored 2, Doom and Overwatch with the top two games then advancing to the next round of voting.
Group B has also kicked off today, featuring heavyweight titles such as Super Mario Odyssey, Death Stranding, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Persona 5 – again, only two can progress.
More groups will go live in the following days this week, with the likes of Breath of the Wild, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Witcher 3 waiting in the wings to fight it out.
