    Can't decide between Batman Arkham City or Mass Effect 2. I really loved the story in Mass Effect 2 and how epic it felt... but Arkham City was total fan service.

    I'd vote for Half Life 2, but I'll be honest, the fact that the story isn't done at all, it doesn't deserve my vote, and Portal 2 outweighs Portal 1 in every way imaginable. Wait, why the fuck is Wii Sports on there? I'd say scrap that and put Assassin's Creed 2 or Skyward Sword up there.

    The list of nominees: The Wind Waker, Half-Life 2, World of Warcraft, Shadow of the Colossus, Bioshock, Portal, Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption, Arkham City... and Wii Sports.

    One of these games is not like the others...

    Scratch my comment, they're just slow, and that's a shitty list.

    I actually laughed when I saw "Wii Sports" on that list.

    Actually that entire list is complete horseshit. No Portal 2 is a joke and anything other than Half Life 2 doesn't deserve a spot. Unless it's Portal 2.

    Half Life 2 is overrated. HL2: Episode 2 >>>>>>>> HL2.

    And even then, definitely not game of the generation. Maybe best FPS of this generation, maybe.

    That's a pretty awful list.
    I mean, I loved HL2 and Portal...but game of the decade? Hardly. As Guildy pointed out, should be Portal 2 instead. Though I still wouldn't vote that GOTD, but it'd sure blow the other titles off the list.

    My vote went to Wii sports.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. Maybe not best FPS, but HL2: E2 > HL2 in every way imaginable.

    It's better Super Mario Galaxy by more than a half life.

    Super Mario Galaxy was actually original though. Half Life 2... well, was just another FPS. But the only thing it had going for it was the gravity gun and a story that sets it apart from other FPS titles. As much as I love HL2, it fails in comparison to the originality of Galaxy in pretty much every way.

    Wind waker was the 4th game I've ever played. It was a pretty good, interesting, adventurous game.
    Although the list was pretty stupid.
    It gives random selections and that are stupid.
    Wii Sports - LOL.

    You forget that the story, environment, and actual gameplay were by far some of the best and most pioneering in video game history.

    Is the mantle of "FPS" so looked down upon for no real reason that people deny a true title greatness because of it? Even if that title slapped you upside the face with it's greatness in the manner of a large fish?

    It was a FPS. I mean people walk into a room and see a guy just shooting something with a gun, and think "huh, must be a new shooting game".

    Same people walk into a room sees a guy playing galaxy and thinks "huh, another stupid Mario ga..."
    *player jumps off side of planet and loops back around and lands on an enemy head and loops back around again*
    "HOLY SHIT THAT LOOKS FUN!"

    Super Mario Galaxy is absolutely fucking pants-shittingly awesome. It had stellar platforming, great orchestrated music, stunning visuals. All those aspects combined made for one really really really good game.

    Half Life 2 was good but ultimately pretty repetitive and had a number of flaws. It's a good game but most definitely not game of the decade.

    A fun game doesn't always equal a great game.

    God of War is fun but it isn't great. Half Life 2 is like art. It's supposed to be gripping, interesting.

    Also simplifying HL2 as "just shooting something with a gun" is the equivalent of saying SMG is nothing but jumping on platforms.

    Except Mario Galaxy was is STILL a great game. Also there was an added element into SMG to make it different from other platformers, and that's gravity. I love HL2, I desperately want them to make HL3 and release it already, but I'd gladly take Mario Galaxy and it's complete originality over HL2 any day of the week.
