Destructoid's favorite last-gen multi-platform games photo
Destructoid's favorite last-gen multi-platform games
by Brett Makedonski

To commemorate the launch of new consoles, we've taken to retrospective pieces to remember some of the best titles on each system. We did it with the Wii last year, and we've done it with the PS3 and Xbox 360 over the last two weeks. But, that doesn't really paint a complete picture of the past eight years of gaming.

Undoubtedly, third-party published games were just as important to the growth and prosperity of the last generation of consoles as first-party titles were. It wouldn't be right to deny them their time in the limelight just because they could be found on multiple systems. These were the Destructoid Staff's favorite multi-platform titles:

I still don't own a PS3 or Xbox 360, but that's okay photo
I still don't own a PS3 or Xbox 360, but that's okay
by Tony Ponce

Confession time.

With PS4 slated for the end of the year and the next Xbox like out around the same time, the curtain on the seventh home console generation is finally coming down. But while many of you are eagerly anticipating the new hardware, I'm only just now planning to jump on board with the HD incumbents. That's right, I only own a Wii from the current console crop.

Clearly mine is not a common arrangement, as most if not all of my peers have been spreading multi-platform love. The consensus seems to be that the Wii has been the least "gamer-friendly" platform of the past few years and that you were missing out on the best the gen had to offer if you didn't also own one of the others. I beg to differ.

My plan has always been to purchase a second console eventually -- what better time to invest than at the tail end of a generation? I haven't felt the need to yet because I've been perfectly satisfied thus far. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Here's a cool overview of every major game of 2013
by Chris Carter

Although you might have seen it already, here's a great picture of 2013's biggest releases, divided by their console/PC debuts, from internet user KingNL. This picture just encompasses releases on consoles and PC -- no portables involved.

Right now, 2013 is looking like a great year for multiplatform convergence, and PC games in general. Just look at the staggering amount of PC games already announced for this year.

Of course, we'll most likely see many more exclusives on the 360, PS3, and Nintendo side of things this E3, but as it stands, it's a great time to be a PC gamer, and PC gaming in general is far from "dead."

Get your wallets ready!
