@thatdudecangame:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_in_video_gaming

Start from here and go through the list to 2014. It has most of the major game releases throughout the years. There are too many to mention.

Bioshock is definitely up there. In the large gaming community, I feel like it's treated as highly as Watchmen is to comics and Fight Club is to books and movies as it both is fun all the way through and simultaneously discusses philosophical topics about society and more importantly people.

The Last of Us was not the first game to have fundamentally great characters and stories, but I feel like it's the first in this generation that everyone knows about and appreciates because of it. Like how Final Fantasy 7 did back during the PS1 days, GTA 3 during the PS2 , and Halo:Combat Evolved on Xbox. Almost everyone appreciated those games and that's true for The Last of Us as well nowadays.

But like @Minishdriveby said, there just too many games to list of and many of those games I haven't played. So no full opinions as of yet.

Batman Arkham Asylum and City. Not Origins. In no way Origins.

-Bayonetta
-Vanquish
-Anarchy Reigns
-The Wonderful 101
-Metal Gear Rising
-Deadly Premonition
-Super Mario 3D World
-Demon's Souls
-Dark Souls
-El Shaddai
-Resident Evil 4

By the way, All of the Bioshock games, everything by Rockstar, and The Last of Us are all shit. Don't play them. They all have incredibly mindless, tedious, uninteresting gameplay, and narratives that in no way make up for how agonizing they are to play. The best way to experience them would be to simply watch a Let's Play, ideally one that edits out the majority of the gameplay.

You and me both. I really liked Watch Dogs, but I'm not sure about best game of the decade yet. Maybe after I play it more, but for now I just see it as a great sandbox game with a new, innovative way of interacting with the world.
