Our love for this man knows no bounds

In a recent episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, Sony's official brand mascot – and Worldwide Studios president – Shuhei Yoshida revealed his top ten games of the generation. The list, unsurprisingly, is exclusively populated with the platform holder's titles:

1. Journey
2. Demon’s Souls/Dark Souls (tie for #2 and #3)
3. Demon’s Souls/Dark Souls (tie for #2 and #3)
4. The Last of Us
5. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
6. Sound Shapes
7. Persona 4: Golden
8. LittleBigPlanet
9. Grand Theft Auto V
10. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Of particular note is the explanation he gives for placing Journey at the top spot. He describes his own personal connection with the online experience, as well as the story of a girl who lost her father and used the game to come to terms with her grief. It's an incredibly moving account and one that serves to demonstrate both Yoshida's love for the interactive medium and also the raw emotional power of the game. The interview starts approximately 1 hour and 24 minutes into the podcast.

What do you make of the loveable tyke's list? Would you have placed Journey in first place? Give us your top ten games of the generation in the comments section below.

My top 4 would be TLOU and the Uncharted games, but I'd be hard pressed to give you an order for them.

I had no interest in Journey until I played the beta and really enjoyed it. Problem was, I expected the full game to open up and offer a bit more; it didn't, and so I ended up disappointed. For me, it's over-rated, and I've not been back to it since reaching the end.

Just Cause 2 would be up there, since it was great fun and still stands up well today; I'd go as far as saying that I personally think it's better than GTA V.

Journey is such an amazing game, I really really hope it gets the PS4 flower treatment.
