    1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2004 are not good choices.

    Are you kidding? There's no way MGS3 was even close to GOTY 2004.

    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.

    I have to disagree, the game of 1998 has to be StarCraft THE best RTS ever.

    Starcraft wasn't as good as it was addictive.

    Terrible list, btw.

    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.
