Game of the Decade?

Recommended Posts

In terms of other topics for other sections, maybe other people can make 'album of the decade', 'software of the decade', maybe even 'topic of the decade'?

Anyway, 10 years is an absolute eternity in videogames. Think of the consoles that have come and gone, the Game Boy Advance, the N-Gage *cough*, the PS2, the Xbox, the PS3, the Xbox 360, the Wii, and now try and pick just one game that defines the decade. It seems an impossible task, and it probably is. Think also of the graphics engines in that time, of how superb they seemed back in the day, and how dull and underwhelming they look today.

I don't even have a choice at the moment, I really can't decide. To help, these links might persuade you:

Just look at the names down the years:

The Sims. Deus Ex. Pokemon Gold/Silver. Escape From Monkey Island. Black & White. Max Payne. Silent Hill 2. Ico. Grand Theft Auto 3. Timesplitters 2. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Hitman 2; Silent Assassin. Tom Clancys Splinter Cell. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Maker (:D). Freedom Fighters. Call of Duty. World Of Warcraft. Resident Evil 4. God of War. Guitar Hero. Bully. The Orange Box. Call of Duty 4. Rock Band. Uncharted: Drakes Fortune. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots. Fallout 3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (probably not, but most hyped of the decade for sure). Assassins Creed 2.

That's a tiny selection of great games. At a push, I'd probably say COD4, if only because of the multiplayer that has surely changed FPS gaming forever, and the XP system that's now customary in many games in different genres. There's many other games greater than that though. Feel free to post what you want.
