  • Mass Effect 2 came out this decade.

  • I haven't played it, yet

    Mass Effect 2 came out this decade.

  • You should. A friend introduced it to me a few months back. It's definitely one of the best games this decade.

  • Honestly, I feel like 'Undertale' is a good contender for the best game of this decade

    I know, I know, its a good game, but, it has a bad fanbase. But, did it say 'Best videogames and fanbases of the decade? No, I don't think so.

    I feel undertale is a gem, mainly because of the creator. Toby fox worked hard on it for years, and he isn't a dickhead like..... D-Dickhead bruner!

    And, its graphics are amazing! Oh, and don't get me started on the music.

    So, instead of celebrating the newer AA games, lets recognize the people who had nothing, but turned it into something.

  • I'm too lazy to post pictures so get ready this is going to be a long list.

    So,ME2 from 2010,Fallout New Vegas,COD Black Ops

    From 2011 : Portal 2,Batman Arkham City,Skyrim,Dark Souls,Deus Ex Human Revolution.

    From 2012,ME3,TWD S1 as well,Far Cry 3,Hotline Miami,Journey,Sleeping Dogs and Dishonored.

    2013 also had some damn good games like TLOU,AC Black Flag
    The 2013 Tomb Raider Reboot (the only Tomb Raider game i REALLY liked),and also Gta5.

    From 2014 : Wolf Among Us,Dragon Age Inquisition,Dark Souls 2,Wolfeinstein The New Order,Alien Isolation,Bayonetta 2,South Park The Stick of Truth,Shovel Knight,The Evil Within.

    From 2015 : The Witcher 3,Bloodborne,Batman Arkham Knight,Ori and the Blind Forest,Hotline Miami 2 and Tales of course.

    From 2016 : Dark Souls 3,Dishonored 2,Doom,SuperHot,and Oxenfree.

    From 2017 : The Legend of Zelda : Breath Of The Wild,Cuphead,Divinity Original Sin 2,RE7.

    From 2018 : Marvel's Spider Man,AC Odyssey,Hitman 2,and The Remastered Spyro Trilogy.

    From 2019 : A Plague Tale Innocence,The Outer Worlds,Jedi Fallen Order and Greedfall.

    I'm sure there's more but that's all i can think of right now,also keep in mind that these are the games I have played i didn't want to put a game on my list i haven't played even if it's a game everyone loved.

    That last one is hard to answer mine would be either ME2 or TWAU.

  • I still haven't finished Mass Effect 1. I got bored after the first hour. I dunno when I'll recover.

    You should. A friend introduced it to me a few months back. It's definitely one of the best games this decade.

  • You got a good list going on there. You missed Skyrim tho. Might add my own later on

  • edited December 2019

    Mfw Dragon Age: Origins missed 2010 by 2 months. But apparently ultimate edition was released that year, so I'm gonna use a loophole, because it's my favourite game ever.

    Anyway, with that out of the way, here goes:
    2010: Mass Effect 2, Assassin's Creed 2 (PC version was released in 2010, aha another loophole), Mafia 2, Dragon Age: Origins
    2011: Dragon Age 2, Batman: Arkham City, Portal 2, Skyrim
    2012: The Walking Dead, Borderlands 2
    2013: Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, The Wolf Among Us
    2014: The Banner Saga, Shadowrun: Dragonfall, Hearthstone, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Tales from the Borderlands, The Talos Principle
    2015: Pillars of Eternity, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Shadowrun: Hong Kong, Undertale, Soma
    2016: Stardew Valley, Overwatch
    2017: Pyre, Batman: The Enemy Within, Assassin's Creed: Origins
    2018: Celeste, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, A Way Out, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Thronebreaker
    2019: According to Steam I only purchased one 2019 game, that is Slay the Spire, so I guess that is my GotY, lel

    I definitely missed something, so maybe I'll edit it later.

  • I'm not sure about Skyrim. I haven't played it.

  • It's true, the first game was pretty dry. If my friend wasn't walking me through the game I probably wouldn't have finished the game either. But it's good to beat so you know how your choices make a difference in the next game. Plus know the character history. Almost everything get's better in the next game.

    There were many more games that I loved, but because it seems like not enough people are playing these games I feel the need to mention the Yakuza series. I've been obsessed with them since I've (to my shame only fairly recently) discovered them.

    Okay, 3 is a remaster of a game from 2009 and the remaster of 5 won't be out until next year, so they don't count.

    2010: Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

  • stardew valley is definitely up there as a game of the decade contender for me personally, but if i were being completely objective, breath of the wild is the definitive game of the decade. a lot of franchises completely reinvent themselves and it comes out as things like DmC: Devil May Cry, but breath of the wild not only completely changed a 40 year old formula, but it came out perfect, set a new standard for open world games, has fantastic and challenging gameplay that isn't too harsh to new players, a fantastic story, an excellent score and from the sheer size alone is absolutely what video games have been leading up to since the 70s. there will likely be more games that are better, and there are even some this decade i VASTLY prefer to botw (stardew valley, dark souls, RE7, bloodborne), but nothing is as game changing imo as botw is.

    ...which is why my game of the decade is PEGGLE 2 BABY WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FUCK YEAH PEGGLE TWO: 2 FAST 2 PEGGLE.

    Of course I played some garbage, I can name a few of like:

    1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2
    It was way worse than the movie. Story is forgettable, the character designs are ugly, the open world is empty as shit and there was no redeeming quality. Thank God it failed and had Activision sell their license to Sony which gave us Spider-Man PS4

    2. The Walking Dead A New Frontier
    I don't think you need explanation cause you would already know. It's just like Alien 3 and Terminator Dark Fate.

    3. Outlast 2
    This isn't the worst game ever made but as a huge fan of the first game (Which changed my life on horror gaming forever) and the Whistleblower DLC, the sequel was a huge disappointment. It was a running simulator, story was confusing as hell, the characters were forgettable, the level design was repetitive and it ended with a lot of questions unanswered. What was Red Barrels thinking? Not to mention the whole franchise was written by J.T. Petty who also wrote The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 4 which was terrible. I hate that guy.

    4. Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days
    Out of all the games that I mentioned, I think this was the worst for me. I cannot stand this piece of shit. It's shit from start to finish. Short story, terrible characters, broken gunplay and trash ending.

    5. Evolve
    I feel bad for my step-father, he bought a game for me and he made a wrong choice buying Evolve. After playing the first 20 minutes of the game, I already decided to stop and never play it ever again.

    i'm actually really surprised considering how varied your opinions on films are. i would have expected you to at least play a few stinkers here and there and have some strong thoughts on em.

  • atta boy, i knew you could come up with a few if you thought about it. and honestly? i agree with all of these. yeah none of them are very good and 4 of the ones you mentioned in fact are very much unbearable. i'm personally a fan of outlast 2 but it's flaws aren't lost on me. and that amazing spider-man 2 game whooo boy what a nightmare.

    Goodness gracious! You reminded me of how I wasted $40 for this garbage back in 2014, thank Sony and Insomniac for Spider-Man PS4!
