Pretty solid list and Id have to say I tend to agree with most of these choices

The Best Games of the Last Decade

We take a year-by-year look at ten gaming greats.

As we turn down the home stretch of 2007, the Internet is bound to start buzzing with year-in-review articles. And we're no exception. In the coming weeks we'll be unveiling our Game of the Year awards, which will surely include more than a few looks back at the year that was.
But before we make history, we figured it would be worthwhile to remember it. From Zelda to Oblivion, from Liberty City to Azeroth, the greatest games of the past ten years have thrilled players while slowly but surely making a lasting impact on the pop culture landscape. Spanning several generations of consoles and introducing a variety of brand new genres, here are our picks for the best games of the last decade.

Note: Because the nature of this kind of list is inherently exclusionary and incendiary, we've included a list of other titles that we strongly considered for each year. An argument can certainly be made for each of these games as well. Please, easy on the hate mail


1997- Gran Turismo
1998- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
1999- Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
2000- The Sims
2001- Grand Theft Auto 3
2002- Battlefield 1942
2003- Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic
2004- World of Warcraft
2005- Resident Evil 4
2006- The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2004 are not good choices.
 
No Half Life 2: List FAILS.

I'd say:
Fallout 2
God of War
MGS1
Shadow of the Colossus
BioShock
StarCraft
Half Life 2
Burnout 3
Psychonauts
Deus Ex
 
Hmm, some I agree with, others no. I tried to make my own, but I kept thinking of too many choices.
 
They may have been the game of their year, but a few of those definitely don't belong on there as a generalization of the best games from the past decade. Basically, some just got lucky that another year's runner-up wasn't around to compete with them, heh.
 
1998- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

I can agree with that at least.
 
I'd say Ocarina, KotOR and RE4 are solid.
 
Starcraft wasn't as good as it was addictive.

Terrible list, btw.
 
I finally beat RE4 on Wii, I hate to say it, but it's overrated.
 
Not in your MGS3 hating eyes maybe. But it definately was.

Hmm the fact that no MGS game is on there is dumb...even the selling figures of that series should have earned a place up there :o
 
Why would sales figures even be included in the criteria? That kind of eliminates the entire point.
 
Then Madden should be on the list. I'm not saying Metel Gear doesn't deserve to be included, but sales figures shouldn't help or boost any game's chances. Halo 2 should be on the list as well if you want to include sales figures.

?

Higer sales figures would suggest that a character or game is more popular than others....

How is that not logical criteria?
 
Shouldn't be a popularity contest.
 
It's the Best games of the last decade, not the most popular. Otherwise you might as well put every EA Sports game on that list as well, because they're popular.

Popularity =! quality.
