Game of the Generation - Results

By Cee Jay, 5 years ago
Hey TA’ers!

In our biggest voting event yet, we travelled through the life of the Xbox 360 and showcased the best it has to offer. The breathtaking stories of Commander Shepard, Marcus Fenix, Ezio Auditore and John Marston (amongst others) will live on long after this generation has ended. I’m not sure what the next generation holds, but whatever lays ahead it’s clear that the Xbox One has some very large boots to fill.
