    Or maybe they deliberately ignored the instructions cause... how do you expect people to pick only one game as their "top game" of "X" year?

    So, so, so many great games came out this decade.
    2010: Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver
    2011: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
    2012: Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (someone vs me on dream trampoline I dare you)
    2013: Animal Crossing New Leaf or Pokemon X and Y
    2014: Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire
    2015: Dragon Ball Xenoverse (Just Cause 3 a close second)
    2016: Stardew Valley
    2017: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    2018: Red Dead Redemption 2
    2019: I haven't purchased a single new release this year, but Planet Zoo is looking really promising and will be the first game I buy come the Steam winter sale.

    So many awesome games came out this decade. I really hope we get the same calibre of games in the 2020s.

    2010: Minecraft (Ik, 2009 but it didnt even get out of beta until 2011)
    2011: Portal 2
    2012: Rhythym Heaven Fever
    2013: Animal Crossing: New Leaf
    2014: GTA V (came out the year before but those versions look like a hot mess compared to the Ps4/Xb1 Version, also I need animal crossing on the list)
    2015: Super Mario Maker
    2016: Planet Coaster
    2017: The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild
    2018: Tetris effect
    2019: Dreams (PS4, technically only early access but still amazing)

    Honorable Mentions (Some even the wrong decade lol)

    Super Mario Galaxy
    Plants vs. Zombies
    Persona 5
    Rocket League
    Spiderman PS4
    Spyro Reignited Trilogy
    and (clearly the best title ever)... Bubble Bobble 4 Friends. Anybody remember that one? It's not even out in the US until next year, I'd have to import from Europe.

    Fun fact, I had to look up most of the even years because I couldn't think of anything.

    It's both easy and tough for me.

    Easy because I make yearly lists of my favorite games of that year. Tough because I hardly ever compare those outside of the year, and it only being incidental that I play a game that released the same year (what? It's not like you never watch movies released in earlier years :P ).

    So...when making this post, I had no idea how many games I'd have to knock out due to them being released earlier...and apparently I have quite some droughts in some years. :unsure:

    Anyhow: after some faffing and selecting, here are my best games per year:

    2010: Super Mario Galaxy 2
    2011: plants vs zombies
    2012: stealth bastard deluxe
    2013: Rayman legends
    2014: Rocksmith 2014 remastered (okay, the remaster thing was later, but counts)
    2015: Ori and the blind forest
    2016: Inside
    2017: Cook serve delicious 2 / Race for the galaxy (they're both so good I can't just pick one)
    2018: Celeste
    2019: either Shards of infinity or Mystic vale...I'll tell you when I make my own yearly list (ey...I don't want to ruin the enormous anticipation for my own yearly list :tpi:)

    And to those who care: my nominees:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
