The generation has been excellent
It's undeniable sure... but you also can't deny every console generation has seen developers/publishers go under.... Sunsoft, Acclaim, and Data East are a few that come to mind... and that was back when the market was way less saturated.
Is there a list of developers/publishers and the year they closed? The one on Wikipedia only says whether they are active or not.
Hard work may pay in the long run, but laziness always pays off right now!
I've loved this gen. I'm not sure that my experiences were better than last gen, but the games were better.. if that makes any sense.

This really depends on how many games you've played.
But I do agree, I think all the generations have been great.
I've been playing games since the NES era, and all the games were always memorable.
I've never preferred any consoles to be quite honest, I cherished all of them entirely, the same way.
I might have played more games in certain consoles, but it never changed how much fun I had playing them. So yea, this generation has been great :) I hope next gen would go beyond further than this generation.
The rise of online multiplayer and DLC have ruined this gen.
Yeah, I've had many game experiences that I feel where some of the best times I've had while gaming.

This gen has to be the worst I've been a part of.
Been playing since Sega genesis.
Garbage gen is garbage
Remember when games used to be good?
Proudly boycotting Capcom and DLCs.
Same tc. Man.. This gen made me cry, don't hate.. =( it was personal to me. Different games/movies mean different things to people.
It also made my balls tingle! All 4 of them! (That's a hint. Krogan-Maaaaaan)
I'm also playing Fallout 3 and NV lately. just got it with all DLC and stuff. love it.

This generation was pretty... bad I suppose. It sparked a few gems but most games were bad.
I think Batman: Arkham City is the best game of this generation, but not of all time - to me that accolade goes to Perfect Dark on the N64. But I certainly wouldn't call this console generation the best, to me it's the worst of the three I've owned consoles in, even though it has had some very good games indeed.
And I too hate day one DLC, DLC that should have been part of the original game, dumbing down of games (constant onscreen prompts, obviously linear 'exploration', too easy challenge level, etc), a weapon carrying limit, etc.
Gen 6 wasn't that great anyway. The ps2 only had Obscure Japanese games (Ico, DMC, SOTC) (Please correct me if I'm wrong) it seems, the xbox kinda sucked. The only one with great exclusives was the gamecube.
The XBox had some great exclusives, such as Unreal Championship 2 and Breakdown, and if you define 'exclusive' as meaning 'exclusive to console, but also on PC' then the XBox had morefantastic exclusives, such as Half-Life 2, Chronicles of Riddick, Elderscrolls III: Morrowind, and Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2. The PS2 had Deus Ex, Half-Life, Quake 3, etc.
Generation six was my second favourite generation, the fifth being my favourite. This generation has been good, but not as good as those, I believe. And that's not nostalgia talking, as I still have my N64, original XBox and PS2 conected up, and still play on them occasionally. I also still play on my Gamecube, but that's currently not connected to my TV as there aren't enough SCART connections to have all my consoles connected at once, sadly.
