for me there is like a total of seven titles i would consider masterpieces

out of those seven, the mass effect games are my favourite so far

here's hoping something can surpass it for me before the end of this gen(witcher 2, nino kuni, the last guardian, the list goes on.....)

though i shouldn't be greedy

Gears 3 is the most "complete" game that i've played this gen. The game just oozes polish.

Bayonetta

Loads and loads of content in the form of secrets and unlockables, some so hard most people dont know they exist, and cheat codes (to help gets these hard items)

Never needed a patch (not talking about the Sega port to the PS3 version)

No DLC

Fantastic Game play

Fantastic Art Direction

Fantastic Soundtrack

Fantastic and over the top cut scenes

Yep...that Kamiya cranks out masterpiece after masterpiece

I won't argue the game, because that's your opinion, but sales most certainly do not back that up.

In any case, masterpiece? Eh, probably Skyrim. It's a perfect picture of what video games can do that other mediums can't. You can basically just live in the world.

Secondly, I'd say Mass Effect 1 or 2. Both fantastic games.

This. Does everything damn near perfectly, with a ton of creativity to boot.
