Some good choices there.

I'd also throw in Witcher 3 and Divinity 1 and 2 just to name a few.

Phantom Pain was really good as well.

Mass Effect 2 is probably my absolute game of the decade, but honourable mentions abound:

I got in to MMOs in a big way, levelling people to max in Star Trek Online, Star Wars The Old Republic and what is my second-favourite game of the decade, Final Fantasy XIV.

I'd like to also mention the likes of Arkham, the new Hitman games, GTA (even as shitty as Rockstar have gotten), and the Lego games. And naturally Mass Effect 3, which to be fair, is pretty damn good bar the very end.

What can I say, I love RPGs.

Mass Effect 2
Hollow Knight
Red Dead Redemption
Sekiro
The Age of Decadence
Katana ZERO

Limited to games I've beaten at least once and obviously I've played, so Nintendo games are SOL because consoles are gay.

Most of my favorites have also been mentioned already, so I'll avoid repeating them. In general though, for me, this decade has really been defined by Dark Souls and souls-like titles like Bloodborne and Hollow Knight. I'll also throw Infamous 2/3, Borderlands 2/3, Portal 2, Super Mario Odyssey, and Shadow of Mordor into the the pot, since no one's mentioned them yet. I'm sure there's also a ton of indie games deserving of a spot, but there's so many that I can't really call them all to mind on the spot.

For all the RPG lovers, I'm surprised no one's mentioned Dragon Age or Dragon's Dogma. I haven't played much of either, but weren't they supposed to be among the better RPGs of the decade?

I would definitely have Dragon Age: Origins on this list but it just misses the cut-off for this decade.

I wouldn't include either of the other DA games, myself.

Yeah it's 2010 onwards, so Origins wouldn't count. I thought Inquisition was pretty popular too, though.

Portal is good at what it does, but didn't stick with me like the ones I named, and I unfortunately haven't beaten Bloodborne because, as I said, consoles are gay. Shadow of Mordor is very good but I never finished it, which isn't a mark against the game's quality, I just had ADD for games for the longest time and didn't finish a lot of really good games. Dark Souls is definitely one of the strongest contenders for game of the decade in terms of impact, only perhaps beaten out by Minecraft (you don't have to like it but can't deny its influence)

Dragon's Dogma is another victim of my video game OCD. In terms of combat it is one of the best action RPG games I've ever played, though it is lacking in story and RPG choice/dialogue mechanics compared to some of the games I've mentioned. Dragon Age Inquisition sucks shitty balls and I will tolerate no one who says otherwise. 2 is better. Origins is very good though, rivaling Mass Effect 2 as Bioware's best.

Also don't be a gay, what games already mentioned would you bring up?

Think of it like emulating the console.


Only without the PC. PCless emulation.

Yeah, I figured that's why it was omitted. It's a shame, though; I just revisited it the other day, and it's still a blast. Arcane-heavy builds are really fun, provided that you know how to make use of the stat in the early game, before spells and elemental gems become available.

As someone who didn't play the Arkham games, it was a really fresh experience for me. Especially once the goal of the game shifted to army-building instead of just orc-hunting. I would have mentioned Shadow of War, since it's basically SoM but "more," but the EA P2W garbage was so intrusive that it hurt the atmosphere for me. There's something to be said for Shadow of Mordor's "cozy-ness," too; there was only two maps in the game, but you could sort of engineer your own things to do within, so it had a more sandbox-y feel than the story-driven SoW.

I guess I just don't personally don't associate Minecraft with the 2010s. Older web-based versions of the game existed in the mid-late 2000s, and that's when I played it. Totally agreed on Dark Souls; it's a shame that so much of its fame is for it being "the really hard game," and not "the really beautifully designed game" that it is.

I hear there was a 2019 expansion/rerelease that might have helped on that front.

What 2019 expansion? The Switch version came out then, and afaik that's just the same Dark Arisen expansion we got since 2016. Maybe with an added Nintendo exclusive or two.


For the record, the Xbox 360 version of DA has a "black swordsman" outfit, and the "White hawk" sets, so you can get your Berserk on. The outfits did not survive the port to modern systems.

Yeah, I wanted to have DAO as it's my favourite game of this century, but sadly it misses the cut-off.

I like it, and I've finished it twice, but I dunno it has a LOT of issues, and when it came out it got a lot of justified flak.

One game I forgot to mention is Star Wars Battlefront 2. Sure, for a while it was a mess, but as it is right now, and for the last year or two? It's been a phenomenal Star Wars experience imo.

Hm, I'll have to get around to playing the console version.


I'm sure the complaints about the 360 version of DA:O being trash as opposed to the PC version are exaggerated.

I don't actually play or follow DD, so since I saw "dark arisen" articles pop up in 2019, I assumed it was a new expansion.
