Greatest Games of the Decade 2000-2009
It is controversial enough when people choose the best games released in a given year, so to think it possible to create a definite list of the best games released over a ten year span may be maniacal, but I'll do my best to focus in on a small group of games which I feel defined the last ten years in video gaming. Fifty years from now, if people wanted to look back and see what we were playing, chances are good that these are the games that would be listed, or were the catalysts for creating the most popular games of our time. Some of the entries below are not the best example of their given genre or series, but their historical significance successfully overshadows this shortcoming.
