Gaming's greatest battle

Running from 1st June to 4th August, mammoth online retailer hosted a poll which pitted some of the biggest games of this console generation against each other in a tournament-style showdown. And Bethesda's open world epic, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, came out on top.

The 2011 release fought off Super Mario Galaxy, BioShock, and The Last of Us to claim its place as the greatest game of the generation. Other finalists included Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto IV, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Bethesda's own Fallout 3. We can't help but wonder what would have happened had this poll taken place after the release of Grand Theft Auto V, though.
