"The CEO's kid played it" - the story behind Assassin's Creed side missions

A lot has changed over the years.

I've looked over the lists of games released for each year 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 years ago and selected a couple of memorable games to remind me what things were like the (not a "best of" list).


  • Twisted Metal
  • Chrono Trigger
  • Panzer Dragoon
  • Command & Conquer
  • Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness


  • TimeSplitters
  • Deus Ex
  • Diablo 2
  • The Sims
  • Hitman: Codename 47


  • Guitar Hero
  • Resident Evil 4
  • Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved
  • Call of Duty 2
  • God of War


  • Red Dead Redemption
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2
  • Heavy Rain
  • Just Cause 2
  • Cut the Rope


  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
  • Broken Age
  • Rocket League
  • Ori and the Blind Forest

I think that the gameplay of most current gen games (PS4/XBO) could have been implemented with lower graphical fidelity on the previous generation hardware (PS3/360). I don't think the same could be said of previous generations.

I wonder if the included SSD in the next generation will deliver the new gameplay options they are currently promising?
