Many of you remember the other day I talked about the game of the decade and how I didn’t think you could truly pick one and the best you could truly do is debate it. So here are 5 picks for me today and I will have 5 more tomorrow, and we can discuss them, or you can just call me a moron. So enjoy in no real order, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
The original Dark Souls, released in 2011 and despite the many, many issues it had it changed the way many people play games. Sure Demon Souls came first but Dark Souls really made it popular. Now the style wouldn’t be perfected until much later, but this game deserves to be mentioned.
Dark Souls deserved to be mentioned for bringing a series to life really, Bloodborne deserves it for perfecting that series imo. The lore, the art style the combat itself. It is all steller. Nothing about this game is unfairly hard, but it is hard. Simple mistakes will get you killed time and time again, but good timing and situational awareness will get you through every time.
Spider-Man is on the list not because I think it would ever win this honor, but because it deserves to be mentioned simply for what it finally gave us. A Spider-Man that felt like Spider-Man. The web-swinging was great, the story was pretty amazing. It was pretty nice to see real superpowers could be done right.
The Witcher 3 is a game I am well known to not be a fan of but I can’t deny the impact it has had. From Netflix shows to awards. the game is hundreds of hours in content, the lore is out of this world and speaking of the world, it is one of the most alive in gaming.
I know I am playing with numbers here a little bit by counting Minecraft here because it was initially released in 2009 for some people but the official release date by Majong was 2011. But it has been released on every console (and PC) so I feel like, for a blog, we can cut it some slack and since it has has been one of the highest streamed and played games in that entire time period, we can talk about it.
So let me know what you guys think, and until tomorrow when I give you my last 5, may the gaming gods bring you glory.
