50 Greatest Games of the Decade, Part V - The Top 10

As 2009 comes to a close, GameStooge is looking at the Greatest Games of the Decade. Part V features the top 10 games of the decade. These games are not only the best of the decade, but rank as some of the best games of all time. These games have influenced the industry to vast degrees – they have sold machines, started or continued great franchises. The number one game on the list is the unchallenged leader of its genre, and arguably the most profitable game ever made, bringing its developer and publisher riches, and having a fan base so strong the developer has its own convention.

The Top Ten games include (alphabetically): Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Civilization IV, Deus Ex, Diablo II, Grand Theft Auto III (and sequels), Half-Life 2, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 3, The Sims and World of Warcraft.

Halo 3 flopped?

3M in the first week alone. If that's a flop, what would you consider Uncharted 2? (400K the first week, out of the top 20 in the next month).

I'd bump up Dues Ex and Half Life 2 over WoW (then swap GTA up higher than WoW). But that's just me.

...but no Metroid Prime? Are you kidding me? Sure, we all have our opinions, but even if I don't like games like WoW, I can understand putting it in the top 10. But one of the great 3D transitions of all time doesn't even make the list?

Metroid Prime was #51. There were too many games.
