December is a boring month for game releases, so I'm wrapping up my list now lol. Here are my choices:

  1. Bayonetta 2 / Bayonetta - my favorite action game; love the characters and style.
  2. XCOM 2 / XCOM - a strategy game that doesn't get bogged down in details.
  3. Persona 4 Golden - pretty much the must have game on Vita and opened me up to the franchise.
  4. Skyrim - my first Elder Scrolls game. I have so many memories of this game. Loved just exploring and running into things. The story was cool too. And the memes.
  5. Metal Gear Solid V - not my favorite Metal Gear, and Kojima's wackiness was absent here, but still a really well done game with lots of different ways to play.
  6. Rainbow Six Siege - my favorite FPS. it's tactical with a competitive community, but overall, it's fun.
  7. Forza Horizon 4 - favorite racing game. This is pretty much Xbox's top tier franchise in my opinion.
  8. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - pretty much the closest thing to Ocarina of Time for me.
  9. Bloodborne - it's an action oriented souls game with great atmosphere and design.
  10. Divinity Original Sin 2 - I kinda have a love hate relationship with this game, but it's still brilliant imo. Loved the game mechanics, but also felt that the story was a bit dry and the game was lengthy.

Honorable Mentions: Nier Automata, Astral Chain, Portal 2, Resident Evil 2 Remake, The Last of Us, Spider-Man, Yakuza 0, Titanfall 2, God of War, Nioh

Games I haven't Played Yet: Red Dead Redemption 2, Sekiro, and plenty of others I'm sure lol.

I have a top 8 that really stand out -

  • God of War - Game of the Decade?
  • The Last of Us - Game of the Decade?
  • God of War III
  • Bloodborne
  • Horizon Zero Dawn
  • The Last Guardian
  • Uncharted 4
  • Death Stranding - I'm still in the honeymoon period , but it is so memorable , addictive , fascinating , and unlike anything I've ever played before.

Picking the last 2 is difficult. So many to choose from -

Some others - Uncharted 3 , Resistance 3 , MAG , Dead Space 2 , Killzone Shadow Fall (multiplayer) , Sekiro Shadows Die Twice , Spider-Man , Ratchet & Clank ,The Evil Within , Until Dawn , Yakuza 0 , Nioh , Nier Automata , etc.

  1. Civilization 5 - my favorite Civ game, looks exactly how I want a Civ game to look.
  2. No Ma'am's Sky - fun in small amounts and almost unlimited base building
  3. Sims 4 - best character creator and also powerful building mode with the easiest controls i've seen in any game. Really buggy though gameplay wise, and it runs like garbage. Huge amount of cosmetic and gameplay mods.
  4. Skyrim - i keep this game around to play mods every so often.
  5. Saints Row 3 & 4 - able to customize your own character with insane detail, great controls, runs silky smooth and funny story. SR3 and 4 should be played together, the storyline from 3 follows into 4.
  6. Sunset Overdrive - not much customization options in the character creator compared to Saints Row, but there are a ton of clothings you can get in the game. Also similar greatness in storyline and humor like in Saints Row.
  7. Tombraider 2013 - i liked this reboot, i didn't like the other two games after it though.
  8. Starcraft 2
  9. Batman Arkham Series
  10. MGS 5 - the only Metal Gear game i've actually liked, the open world was fun. Game sucked near the end and was just filler repeat missions, really ruined it somewhat.

I have all these still on my pc so thats why i have them on the list. If a game survives this long on my hard drive I must like them i guess.

Still the same as the other thread, (only one game per IP):

  1. Sonic Mania Plus - It's literally what I've been wanting since 1995 - a SEGA Saturn Sonic that builds off of 3 & Knuckles.
  2. Rodea the Sky Soldier (Wii) - It's the next evolution of Sonic & NiGHTS, and not only does it make the best usage of the Wii-Mote compared to any other game on the system, it once again proved that Yuji Naka is my favorite developer of all-time.
  3. The Witcher 3 - This is hands down the best WRPG I have ever played, and the amount of content it has is insane.
  4. Yakuza 0 - It's the best game in the series, and I've played literally 14 of them. I can't recommend Y0 enough.
  5. Persona 5 - This introduced me to the Persona series, and I absolutely loved it. Out of all the games here, this is the one I've played for the most sheer amount of hours.
  6. Nioh - It's the game that got me into the souls-like genre, and out of all of them, Nioh easily has the best combat. New Ninja Gaiden when?
  7. Bloodborne - The atmosphere and gameplay are top notch. I hope FromSoft finally gives us a sequel when the PS5 comes out.
  8. Super Mario Galaxy 2 - This is easily the best 3D Mario. I wish we had gotten a third game in this series rather than that mediocre open world collectathon on Switch.
  9. Batman: Arkham City - Even though I love the first Arkham's story, City provides the best overall package, and as a huge fan of the animated series, I really enjoyed the experience.
  10. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron - As a G1 & 2 fan, the SP is like a dream come true, but the MP is on a whole other level. Gears of War be damned, FoC is where it's at.

- Honorable Mentions:

  • Valkyria Chronicles 4
  • Gravity Rush 2
  • Nier: Automata
  • Vanquish
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
  • Mega Man 11
  • Azure Striker Gunvolt
  • Freedom Planet
  • A Link Between Worlds
  • Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice
  • Doom
  • Divinity: Original Sin 2 (pending)
  • Shenmue III (pending)

Rocket League- this game is pefect, really cant say anything bad about it.

Dead space 2- one of my favorite series, one of the greatest horror games ever made, I love dead space, 2 was my favorite of the 3

Dota2: solid game, introduced me into mobas, I have to put it here for play time alone

Overwatch: too high of playtime to not include, its unique from your typical shooter, heavy team play

CIV V: with all the DLC its to much content, excellent game, great series

Super Mario odyssey: its my platformer of the decade, im a sucker for a really good platformer / collectathon

Octopath traveler: I'm putting it here, I had gotten away from turnbased rpgs but this one pulled me back into them. I like the art style alot and gameplay, personally liked it alot more than the more 3d rpgs like persona, nino kuni, dragon quest, I dont know why I just really enjoyed it.

Tekken Tag tournament 2: best fighting game of the decade, supported 2v2, most characters ever in a tekken game, the roster is so damn impressive it makes tekken 7 feel like a major rip off

Smash Ultimate: one of my favorite party games and this is the best one in the series.

DMC5: I'm a hack n slash fan, the genre has always been one of my favorites, god of war tho highly acclaimed was a down grade in the series and no longer felt in the hack n slash genre

Ninja gaiden was destoryed after 3, it was shit and killed the series

Bayonetta 2 and nier automata are execellent, but DMC5 is who ranks top dog, keeping hack n slash alive.

I listed 10 already but trackmania turbo is my shit as well

@SolidGame_basic: It has some issues sure... but after waiting 18 years for the game and the fact that it feels like a direct sequel to the Dreamcast games, I'm pretty happy with it. Considering just 4.5 years ago, I considered it an impossibility.

1. The Last of Us - Definitely my favorite game of the past decade. The story and characters made it worth while. It's one of the few games that I have played through several times.
2. God of War - A great game. Didn't think they could pull it off but they did.
3. Horizon:Zero Dawn - Really enjoyed this game. Fighting the large machines was pretty epic.
4. Zelda: Breath of the Wild - One of the main reasons I purchased a Switch day one. Great game.
5. Mass Effect 2 - Still is the best Mass Effect in the series.
6. Destiny 1 - Say what you want for how it launched, Destiny 1 turned out to be one of the few games that I played constantly.
7. 3D Dot Games Heroes - This was an underrated game for PS3. It was an homage to Zelda and it lived up to it.
8. Call or Duty: Black Ops II - One of my favorite CoD games of all time (slightly ahead of BlOps 1). It still stands as the game with the best kill streak loadout in any CoD.
9. Borderlands 2 - This game got me into the looter-shooters. Was so good, I ended up going back to Borderlands 1 to play it as I had skipped it the first time around.
10. The Divison - Was a good game.

Nah all things considered if someone was going to criticize it with some honesty, Champ is still your best bet as the forums lone elitist.

But after 11 years of waiting, I'm damn sure going to gas up getting an action game that plays that well after the parade of garbage that has been gassed up by gamers and the journo types as would be classics, but the playing it part sucks.
