The A.V. Club: The 15 best videogames of the '00s

The A.V. Club writes: "We keep coming back to videogames for the same reasons we always have. Or do we?

What was once a lonely pursuit has gotten social, whether by way of a party-friendly round of Rock Band or a late-night online session of Modern Warfare. The thrills have gotten more complicated, too. Even the shoot-'em-ups aren't just about shooting 'em up anymore. (Or at least not shooting 'em up without some careful planning.)

Metal Gear Solid 4, San Andreas, Devil May Cry 1, Uncharted 2, Mass Effect, God of War 1&2 and Half Life 2 should on the list IMO.

L4D, Advanced Wars SSX3 and Rock Band are good games, but do they really qualify for games of the decade? I guess it's their opinon so you can't really argue, just disagree.

Serious lack of Half-Life 2.

Absolutely. I just went through the list pretty fast and there was no Half life 2 and so did not bother reading. How the hell is Left 4 dead better than Half life 2?
