The last decade has been filled with incredible innovations and quirky gimmicks, some of which will remain commonplace within electronic products for many years to come. This past decade has seen the birth of downloadable content, of digital distribution, of dual screen handhelds, of touch screens and gesture based gaming. This is the decade that pioneered streamed game play onto any system around the World, negating the need for system specs. This is the decade of motion capture and placing yourself within the game. This is the decade where consoles explored online modes and subscription-based gaming. From 2000 to 2009 we have this to be grateful for and so much more.
