Games of the Decade (Official Discussion)

Recommended Posts

*Game has to be released during Jan 2010-Dec 2019

This will be the official forum thread going forward for all those to list games they feel should be considered. You're welcome to continue the conversation in the game debate channel on Discord for some back and forth. This thread will be best for listing games and making arguments for games that may not be obvious for consideration. 

On todays podcast at 2pm ET on Twitch.tv/heavyshelf  we’ll be starting the discussion that will be ongoing throughout December for Games of the Decade. This list is not final, it’s just a list from what’s been mentioned for consideration so far.

We’ll be introducing other games for consideration next week, looking to make it a list of 25. On the back end of the month we’ll attempt to rank them accordingly.

 

Witcher 3

Ori and the Blind Forest

Breath of the Wild

Pokemon Go

Fortnite

God of War

The Last of Us

Stardew Valley

Rocket League

Skyrim

CS:GO

PUBG

GTAV

Doom

Borderlands 2

I’m really having trouble finding a game I think should be in this list but isn’t. For the most part, all of these games have been huge achievements in world building, story telling, visual beauty, depth of content, replayability, and technological advancement. Other games... more of a market success than a  masterpiece, but those deserve consideration too.

Yeah I feel its going to break down as Top 5 are absolute Legends, next 10 were great, maybe some masters of their niche on spot 15-20, and 21-25 will probably end up feeling like honorable mentions. We'll see Im not trying to purposefully organize them in anyway.

Oh snap how have we NOT included Overwatch
