    I actually never had too much trouble with the gameplay, except for the driving. If anything I thought the combat was a little too easy. But man, the game is just so weird in everything else it does I’d still love it even if the gameplay was worse.

    I have a lot of pending games from PS3 so i cant be sure to fill 10 places, but for sure the best for me is Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii and Metroid Other M

    There are too many good games in that range of time. One game I keep thinking about replaying (and wanting a port for Switch of) is Shadow Complex.

    By release date? This is going to be hard...

    2010: Pokemon HGSS (bad remakes but good games, in fact the last of the series I can claim as such)
    2011 (unexpected): Cubic Ninja (both itself and its unofficial extras)
    2012: none
    2013: Animal Crossing NL (the second-best in terms of content of the series yet after e+, yet the least memorable one I've played especially in terms of the music)
    2014: none (Smash Bros 4 gets the questionable award of being the least worst game of the year I've played AND the worst game I've bought)
    2015: Xenoblade for N3DS (the Wii original is from 2010, but I played this one first and consider having status bars and shit on a separate screen to be a significant improvement)
    2016: none (Pokemon Go wasn't bad from the little I remember, but I didn't actively play it back then, and it retroactively lost the title since it's full of added crap compared to then)
    2017: absolutely no idea, would award Everybody's Golf 7 due to my trust of the brand but actually I've never tried it
    2018: none
    2019: none
    2020: none (I already expect the new animal crossing will be inferior to most previous ones)

    The real-time combat system sucks so I didn't finish it yet, plus it's an open world and I wanna finish it 100%, I mean I can check on Veoh (yeah YouTube has died after all creators stopped posting videos as a reaction to demonetization) to prove what I'm saying but I don't wanna spoil it.

    Souls, Bloodborne, Destiny, Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes (played the most by far, never spent a penny on it :teach: ) Gears of War, TES:IV Oblivion.
    Probably missing something but those are what I've spent the most time on, so feels right to pick them :unsure:

    Pokemon Omega Ruby + Alpha Sapphire, best Pokemon to date
    Mario Kart 7, was a game changer to karting
    Zelda Breath of the Wild, obvious
    Infamous Second Son, the graphics were game changing
    Ni no kuni, the studio gibli and battle system
    Metal Gear Solid 5 PP, game changer also
    Control (for high end pc) one of the best games ive ever played

    this decade was pretty bad in terms of gaming IMO

    Off the top of my head, a few would be:

    Super Mario Galaxy 2
    Animal Crossing New Leaf
    Fantasy Life
    Yo-kai Watch 2
    Mario Kart 8

    Most anticipated was probably Golden Sun Dark Dawn, and well, I don't hate it as much as some people do, but it didn't really live up as you are all aware.

    It's really hard for me to pick favorites, but I found a pic on Reddit which has a lot of the major releases of the decade if anyone else is having trouble.

    Yes!
    Catherine and FTL are the two I think that really made the decade. Everything else is pretty derivative or sequels to games that were already good (they just made them better).

    I usually don't put fighting games on any "top" lists (I think they are all pretty amazing and I never get tired of them), but it is significant that the genre saw a renaissance this decade. There are countless titles and the fighting game scene went from little enclaves to a global community.

    2010 Resonance of Fate
    2011 Catherine
    2012 FTL
    2013 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
    2014 Sengoku Basara 4
    2015 Crypt of the Necrodancer
    2016 Persona 5*
    2017 Nioh
    2018 Spider-Man
    2019 Devil May Cry 5

    *Yes, I had previously said Etrian Odyssey V, but I didn't actually play EO:V until it came out in English the following year. Pocket Card Jockey and Style Savvy 4 also came out that year, it was a big year.

    Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time is definitely my number 1 game of the decade.

    So these will all release in 2020, and therefore still be considered 'part of this decade'? :tpi:
