The Besties 78: Our fondest memories of the generation

By Spotify Studios

To send off the current generation of consoles, we decided to do something a little special. There are no winners or losers this week, just our fondest memories from one of gaming's longest console cycles. I had a nice time recording this episode. Like Justin and Griffin, I started covering games professionally during this generation. I can plot my entire career alongside its big releases, studio openings, studio closures, small conferences, big conferences and comic conferences. When the Xbox 360 came out, I was still in college. That's strange to think about. Share a few of your best memories from this generation in the comments. Let's have an old-fashioned reminiscence. 4:00 - Watching Nintendo reveal the Wii 13:15 - Being an early adopter of Rock Band 25:00 - Halftime - Call of Duty: Ghosts 37:00 - Finishing Portal 2 42:00 - Playing through Oblivion with the McElroy clan 1:01:00 - The winner is everyone!
