Game Freak never evolved Pokemon as much as I'd like. Every game still has so much Red/Blue DNA in it. I psyched myself up for Sun/Moon but it's still basically just Pokemon.

Keen is probably still a top tier PC platform game. Wolf 3D is a maze game. Doom is dark and exploration based (and Doom II is huge and shooty shoot based). Quake is fast paced medieval gothic horror, why isn't that a genre anymore?? Quake III is tight balanced arena shooting. Doom 4 is like a mix of Doom II and Quake III. Doom RPG was like the only good "cell phone" game. id just evolved so much more.

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

ND literally has the defining game of the generation.

The Uncharted 2 remake

We'll agree to disagree ;) The only game there that should even be mentioned in the same sentence as ND is Nier Automata imo. Bayo is great too but the rest are just 'good' games. ND literally has the defining game of the generation.

I'm just a big fan of the genre that Platinum excels at, so yeah there is definitely bias from me.

But at the same time they, as Zodd mentioned, their games are often unique, bring interesting unique mechanics, and are under-the-radar good.
Vanquish is super underrated / under-the-radar. But it's super frenetic boost and shoot gameplay is not like any other game, and is pretty much antithetical to the 3rd person hide behind a wall, pop and shoot gameplay that's so prevalent (which ironically Uncharted is emblematic of).
Metal Gear Rising Revengeance also gets buried beneath the stupid title. But the mechanic to slice objects from any angle is also groundbreaking, and it's another solid title gameplay wise.
Anarchy Reigns was pretty shallow to be honest, but it's one of the better/unique multiplayer brawlers out there.
Wonderful 101 I never played, and I think it's pretty under-the-radar as well, by virtue of the fact that it's a Wii U game. But again, it's pretty unique, and utilised the Wii U hardware like the touch screen uniquely.

And for the record, TLoU came out originally on PS3 generation. And there are many more defining games of that generation, like Skyrim, GTA IV/V, CoD4. And if you're talking PS3 exclusive, then it's Uncharted 2 (which is still ND, but I like it a whole lot better than TLoU).
If you're talking about current gen, I'd have to think about it, I don't think any game has come out as truly defining to me yet. Best candidates would probably be Witcher 3, God of War maybe.

I love Pokemon but Doom (2016) is a masterclass reboot (remake? sequel?) I vote for id
