It was a great game, but definitely not the best from 2001-2009 (9 years). I would have to give that title to Metroid Prime or Half Life 2:D

whether it should be top is up for debate but it certainly should be in the top 10 of the decade

As should the games you mentioned, Okami and UC2 also amongst others

I'm not going to argue with the top pick, as it is certainly one of the best of the decade. But how, Metal Gear Solid 3, Halo: CE, Metroid Prime, and Ninja Gaiden never even managed a nomination in any category makes me question this list.

Okami.. Best art directed. Truly deserves it.

I'm glad I've played some of the best games.

I'm unclear over who exactly voted for these is it just game testers? But anyway shadow of the colossus deserves it, nice to see lbp and u2 in there as well.

Pretty surprising list on other categories too.

Seriously what's up with that game? Played it and it's a step-down from the original MW.

Great game/series, but a lot of people hate it. I hate it. I don't really like FPS's. Thinking that MW2 is a step-down is definitely your opinion. The 1st MW was too simple compared to MW2. MW2 simply had more content and overall was an advancement to MW and feels like it has a lot more replayability from all of the new content.

DigitalAnalog2594d ago

Just to be sure, I was talking about the single-player campaign. Multiplayer was WORSE then MW.

coolbeans2594d ago

Everything besides MP and story were a major step-up in my opinion.
