Here's the Thumbsticks list of the 10 best video games of the last decade, with 40-50 games that were on the shortlist but didn't quite get the nod.
In no order 1. Nier Automata 2. TLOU 3. The Witcher 3 4. UC4 5. RE 2 Remake 6. Death Stranding 7. God of War 8. Spider-man 9. RDR2 10. Control
replace control with Bloodborne/Dark Souls even if you dont like it. They are far better games than Control.
A great list, but whoever wrote the article has the collective testosterone of a 90 year old woman. They called Gone Home, an insufferably dull and boring lesbian teenage girl scavenger hunt, the best game of the year it came out, beating GTA 5, Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us and the Tomb Raider reboot. They also called the God of War series "a pretty lackluster series" before its reboot, that the reboot is just a rip off of the Naughty Dog Sad Dad template, and that Read Dead 2 was just sad cowboys. Are you fucking kidding me? The pretentiousness is through the roof with this shit.
everything except RDR2. what a boring game. beautiful, with great moments, but dull as (bleep)
Can't disagree The game was amazing at first but the more i go the more i got bored I don't think i am ever going to play it again since i finished it
even if you thought the game was boring it still belongs on the list.
The list is rather lackluster. Oh well, opinions are what they are!
Not what my choices would be but some interesting choices highlighting some underrated games. But calling 2011 (one of the best game years ever) not a particularly great year is a strange take imo.
Such a weak list
For me Driveclub needs to be in the top ten. This game suffered from a horrible launch but it turned out to be an amazing racing experience. The weather effects was the first time this gen when i had that WOW! moment as the droplets of water streamed down the windows. it was at that point when i felt it was justifiable buying a new console. Still the best looking racer and perhaps the most photo realistic game to date. https://youtu.be/rDMU45Ptvu... the rest would be mostly ps4 games because Sony delivered in everyway. God Of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider-Man, The Last Of Us.... it was a great 10 yrs of gaming. Nioh, Nier Automata, Resogun, and War Thunder pc are a few more i would add. Gears 5 looks great as well. but chose not to support MS this gen because of what they tried to do in the first year. I don't own a Switch because i haven't been into Nintendo since i was a child. But Breath Of The Wild, from what i watched was good. It's just my opinion. Everyone likes what they like, even if i don't. peace!
Gone Home and Firewatch aren’t even games. Journey barely is also.
What constitutes a game?
An element of challenge and obstacles, by which through the learning of the mechanics, and fortitude, you are able to overcome those obstacles. Gone home and firewatch are visual novels. There are no mechanics to be learned. No obstacles or objectives to be overcome. You are simply turning the page and watching the story as it unfolds.
Wow that's tough! If I had to choose I guess I'd go with in no particular order...., 1. Uncharted 2 Among Theives 2. TLOU 3. God of War(2018) 4. HZD 5. RE2 6. Wild Hunt 8. Mass Effect 2 9. Alan Wake 10. Spider-Man Honorable mentions Days Gone Death Stranding AC Origins/Odyssey AC Black Flag Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Halo Reach Infamous Firewatch Gone Home Hyperlight Drifter Outlast Amnesia Yakuza series Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Borderlands Red Faction Guerrilla Killzone 2 DRagon Age Origins Arkham Asylum Heavy Rain Red Dead Redemption RD2 Darksiders GOW III New Vegas Castlevania Lords of Shadows Dante's Inferno AC2 Gran Turismo 5 Enslaved Odyssey to the West Just Cause 2(my fav in the series) Skyrim Arkham City Resistance 3 Infamous 2 LA Noire Dark Souls ACIII Borderlands 2 Far cry 3 Dishonored TWD Darksiders 2 Sleeping Dogs Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Dragons Dogma Journey I mean I could go on and on and on lol. So may great games released in the last decade!
Uncharted 2 is 2009, it belongs to the 2000's decade (from 2000 to 2009).
Pretty sure this decade started with 2009! 09 to 19 is 10 years, which is a decade! Also as far as the 00's first decade it would be 2000 to 2010, not 2009.
2009 to 2019 would be 11 years man, count them. same thing for 2000 to 2010, it is also 11 years. 2009 - 1 2010 - 2 2011 - 3 2012 - 4 2013 - 5 2014 - 6 2015 - 7 2016 - 8 2017 - 9 2018 - 10 2019 - 11 the decades are: 1980 to 1989 - the 80's 1990 to 1999 - the 90's 2000 to 2009 - the 2000's 2010 to 2019 - the 2010's 2020 to 2029 - the 2020's etc...
Fair enough, never looked at it that way. Sorry for being an ass and swap Uncharted 2 with Demons Souls.
No particular order games that come to mind as ones ive enjoyed the most since 2009 Nier Automata Yakuza 6 Uncharted 4/lost Legacy Journey Last Guardian TLOU Sleeping Dogs Demon's Souls Uncharted 2 Strider
i get opinion is opinion, but in mine this list is absolute dog dookie. a bunch of indies and nintendo games. breathe of the wild is not even the best zelda game in the past decade.
