Game of the decade???

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So as 2019 is nearing it's conclusion, and 2020 draws nearer, what do you guys think is your game of the decade. The game must be your favorite game to play during the years of 2010-2019. For myself, I believe that Super Mario Galaxy 2 was the game enjoyed the most throughout the decade, it came out 9 years ago and i'm still playing the game. If I had to pick a multiplayer game as well it would most likely be CS:GO. What are your guys thoughts?

multiplayer games probably have the advantage of "lasting longer" since the replayability is much higher so they get played more.

games like the last of us and god of war are super great (haven't played only heard) but people mostly play them once maybe twice and then don't touch them again.

and how will it be measured?

If it's just from income then games like league/dota/csgo/tf2 with microtransactions are favored, but if it's how good a game was there's bound to be personal opinions interfering.

 

personally i would say cs go because of the impact it had on the esports scene and the fact that it has never had a "the game is broken" phase other than the revolver.

since league launched in  late October 2009 i wouldn't count it in here but that would probably have taken the spot.

So I suppose it's even more impressive that I have managed to stay attached to SMG2 all these years.

well. not really you had something for the game and you loved it. nintendo makes good games so nothing "impressive" about it :D

it's like cars, some people will say you're a hillbilly redneck if you say you like the dodge hellcat and others will say it's a good looking car.

 

"back on topic"

but newer games probably also have the advantage of having new graphics so amazing single player games from 2012 look horrible in comparison to new ones with things like RTX and all that stuff.

and i belive if it were people voting with their own opinion that would have a bigger impact on the numbers than it should

but i would love to see an official pool for this topic so if any moderator/admin is looking at this forwarding it to the main ltt crew who can possibly contact companies to help get awareness of such a survey could make for very interesting statistics that i'd personally love to see

Even if the launch was catastrophal even for me, Read Dead Redemption 2 takes the crown for me. Stellar storytelling and absurd beautiful landscapes, combined with that it takes my interest for more than an hour which is atm a scarsity for me as my attention span is not the best atm. And it is the first game where i spend most of the time exploring instead of trying to get the story finished.

Gta v takes second, story and so much stuff to do but rdr2 beats that.

You have to say Fortnight for its impact even though I've never played it.

 

For me personally though, probably Horizon Zero Dawn.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

For me it's Witcher 3 for sure, with a second place probably going to Divinity Original Sin.

As for multiplayer I think it's shared between Dota, LoL, Heartstone and CS:GO for being the games that actually made e-sports a thing, I've only played CS:GO but the others are immensely popular as far as I've heard.

Depends on what you like.

Someone may like Civilization V, others may not.

Grand Theft Auto V is 2nd in Metacritic's Top PC games of all time (between Half-Life 2 and The Orange Box) but not everyone played it.

Some games don't age well... for example Fallout New Vegas was great for when it was released, and for that genre (rpg, with store and lots of choices that affect the game story) it was a very good game but if you compare it with games released in the last years with fancy graphics it wouldn't win.

Also most people will be biased towards games released in the last 2-3 years as they remember them better.

Well when you rule out 2009, you're ruling out two of the top contenders in Minecraft and League of Legends. So people are going to throw The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and The Witcher III into the mix. Then there's this other part of the gaming community that's going to throw Dark Souls and Overwatch into the equation. Then there's another part that's going to throw in Mass Effect and Skyrim. Then there's the CSGO, COD and Battlefield gamers, they'll have their say.

 

Personally, I think GTA 5 will get the win simply because it's sold the most copies outside of Minecraft and because I've put in over 900 hours into it.

Looking back, this decade has been kind of a gaming drought for me. Mass Effect was a 2007 game, so it's from the prior decade. Mass Effect 2 was 2010, and that was an excellent game, marred only be the way ME3 ended the trilogy. 

 

Beyond that, the ones that stick out are World of Tanks, which I played off and on since 2013, Final Fantasy 14, which I played for about 2-3 years, and Il-2 Great Battles, which, for me at least, stands out because I'd initially dismissed it when it came out in 2013, because it seemed rather limited after Il-2 1946 and the rather disastrous launch of Cliffs of Dover. They kept growing the game though, and I finally picked it up with their Battle of Bodenplatte expansion, and am now thoroughly hooked on it. 

 

All of that said, if I had to pick just one game of 2010, it would be World of Tanks, both because I did enjoy it for a significant length of time over this decade, and because it's free-to-play model really defined so much of gaming this decade, and unlike a lot of the ones that just went whale-hunting, it seems to have focused on keeping the game competitive, while finding other ways to separate people from their money.

i'd say Rainbow Six siege. It was such a breathe of fresh air in the FPS genre. Blends the CS with a bit of COD and a bit of character shooter. The destruction i haven't seen since bad company 2

Personally I'd say The Last of Us. Bioshock Infinite is a solid candidate as well.

Would have to agree with the last of us, such an amazing story. But even if thats my pick. I think the logical answer is.. Mario? just as a whole. I know mario came out before 2000, But even now. This decade; it brings together families. Its a great franchise. And i'm quite sure anyone under 60 has touched mario/knows mario. So; Mario.

My decade started strong with Star Trek Online, Minecraft had a consistent run throughout most of it, and despite of my very late start, Guild Wars 2 is making an incredible spurt to beat both of them. I'll give Fallout 3, 7 Days to Die, and StarMade honourable mentions.

 

Out of the lot, StarMade dropped the ball the hardest (controversial changes and lackluster development pace dried the community up), closely followed by Star Trek Online (ever growing grind with diminishing satisfaction). Minecraft is a periodical blast that relies on the right group, and 7 Days to Die is a steady performer on its own. Fallout 3 lasted as long as it got DLCs, I would have consumed more.

 

Guild Wars 2 has flaws, for sure, but even all the negative sides combined don't come close to overshadowing the enjoyment I have been getting out of the game. I pray it stays this way.

Really depends on how ur scoring these games.

 

I mean if popularity is the driving force, such as with CSGO and the like, then craptastic sports games from EA will be in contention. I think we can all agree if its from EA it shouldnt be in the list.

Conversely however, super progressive, SJW, woke , etc games should also be ruled out, no points for PC/SJW culture here thanks.

 

So if u discount popularity, and political and social agenda, ur left with content, design, and complexity i would think.

 

So .. where do we stand with FPSers and other PvP driven games. Not particularly complex or content driven are they.

 

 

I honestly couldnt pick a game of the decade. This decade has been ..... controversial to say the least ...  from PC culture infecting things, to business and money grabbing screwing up monetization......the gaming industry hasnt got away unscathed , so its hard to pick.

Well it has to be Saint's Row 4 Game Of The Century addition. Because it's the game of the century. Obviously.

 

But for me it would have to be Alan Wake. Not sure if it counts because it came out in 2010. It's probably the most memorable game I've ever played and people still sometimes talk about 'Alan Wake 2'.

An easy victory for Witcher 3 for me.
