Favorite Games of the Decade (2010-2019)

They are doing this on a lot of sites so I thought it would be interesting to see what everyone on DVD Talk considers their favorite games of the decade are. Please no arguing semantics about what years make up a decade. For this thread everything released between January 1st, 2010 - December 31st 2019. I personally tried to keep it to one game per series (or else I would have probably had ME3 and Rayman Origins on here also).

My list:
1. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
2. Pikmin 3
3. Super Mario Odyssey
4. Gone Home
5. Mass Effect 2
6. Inside
7. Rayman Legends
8. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
9. The Walking Dead Season 1
10. Batman: Arkham City
11. Papers, Please
12. Portal 2
13. God of War (2018)
14. Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
15. Dead Space 2
16. Limbo
17. Borderlands 2
18. Horizon Zero Dawn
19. Bioshock Infinite
20. Dragon Age II

Re: Favorite Games of the Decade (2010-2019)

This is a tough one, because lately I think I've been just getting too old to really get into games ... but I'd have to say Diablo 3, since I've played that off and on since it came out in 2012. Still play seasons every now and then. I don't really remember any other game catching my attention like that, except for maybe World of Warcraft.

I don't play enough games to have a list, but my definite favorite game of the decade was Portal 2.

To be honest I have played The Simpsons tapped out the most. I also loved God of War, Persona 5 and Final Fantasy 15 even with all its flaws. I liked Last of Us and the Uncharted series and the two Southpark games.

Re: Favorite Games of the Decade (2010-2019)

There are tons of games I don't play and styles of games I don't like but I can still understand why people like them. Simpsons Tapped Out I do not understand. The fact that the thread for it here has like 30,000 posts is literally the most baffling thing I've encountered on dvdtalk. I've read a decent amount of the thread. I even played the "game" for a week and zero clue.

I love that your yearly lists feature sometimes obscure gem of games Iíve never heard of or have access to play since only Xbox and your decade list are oneís Iíve heard of and mostly played. More mainstream I guess...
