2020 is almost here. In my opinion the best game of the decade is either dark souls or undertale

I genuinely believe it to be Breath of the Wild. The game shook the fuckin earth.
Accessible for gamers and non gamers alike, fans and non fans of both Nintendo and Zelda, a game that had something for everyone. It had puzzles, it had exploration, it had combat, but most importantly it had Zelda in fucking hot pants.

I'm going with Dark Souls on this one. Sure, I don't want to play any more of it, but it changed storytelling in games. I honestly think that without the Souls series, we might still mostly get games with verbal exposition and tutorials for every little thing. They also pushed level design to its peak. If I tried to map the world accurately, it wouldn't fit together properly, but that's part of the charm to it. You never know what's through the next door or fog gate. And the story of the series, once you understand it, is epic on the level of Norse or Chinese mythology. Played thousands of hours, got a max level character, don't regret it at all.

If we're talking about "best" in terms of making an impact on the industry over the last decade, probably Dark Souls. Not including Minecraft cause Google says it started in 2009.

If we're talking about "best" as in our favorite game of the decade, five way tossup between Terraria, Undertale, Dark Souls, Mario Odyssey, and BOTW.

I heard the new Engine used for Atelier Ryza is really good. Apparently the game feels way different than a good chunk of most the games in the series. Fans of the series that I talked to say it's the just the change of pace they were looking for. I dont know, maybe I should try it out.

That's not Ateleir. None of the Atelier games have any dating.

The Lisa Trilogy was my highlight of the decade. The story was probably my favorite post-apocolyptic setting in a decade rife with those and the soundtrack was one of my favorites of the decade. I feel like it got overshadowed by Undertale and unfairly compared to it. Too bad it's made in RPG maker or it could have got ported to console and got a little more exposure but I think it's the only game made with the engine that has been a commercial success. The fact it was all made by one guy makes it super impressive.

If I only could pick one game that was all around the most thrilling experience in the past 10 years, Dark Souls is a worthy choice. Had no idea what I was getting into when I played it and it blew my mind.

Honorable personal favorites go to the Hyperdimension Neptunia and Senran Kagura series for being brought into our unworthy world. Skyrim was obviously an important release, and arguably one of the larger influences on gaming as a whole this decade.

Skyrim was good. Skyrim was influential. But game of the decade? Not even close. Barely an honorable mention. We should honestly be crucifying Todd Howard for stripping elder scrolls down so much it looks like Robbie Williams at the end of the Rock DJ music video.

You know, I only ever played Skyrim in VR. It seems like so many games went open world because of Skyrim's popularity.

It was amazing in VR to me. Without VR I see how it would be a little bland. In 2011 it really kicked things off for the rest of the decade though.

There are so many things to consider if choosing a universal "best" game. If I were to go off of hours played and overall happiness experienced it would be Peach Beach Splash by a long shot. I also didnt play many games for half the decade and was out living a different life than i do now.

Judging on artistic merit, it's just too subjective with how many games released.

I dunno man, i imagine in 100 years if people historically remember this decade it would be for Skyrim and Fortnite (I hated fortnite personally). If it's anything how people remember decades of music, theres like well in the 90s a lot happened and it mostly looked like primitive experiments. In the 2000s games standardized a bit, and in the 2010s they became bigger and generally encouraged or forced more human interaction thanks to the internet.

Video Games are still such an infant art form that it's hard to say what truly had the greatest impact in short hindsight

Super Mario Odyssey for me. Probably currently THE GOAT game for me. Even though I've beaten the game 100%, I still go back to it like every other week at least, just because it's so damn fun.

Spent most "active" time on League of Legends for sure, and Oldschool Runescape takes the cake for most overall time (as it is more of a "on-the-side" - game, I play it constantly while I'm doing something else on the computer or while I'm at work etc, but very rarely does it have more than like 5% of my attention). Neither of these two deserve to be in contention for game of the decade though, as they aren't really that great overall as games imo, even if they are very good in their own respective genres. Just had to mention them though, as they've been the two biggest time-sinks.

Honorary mentions to Dark Souls, Super Mario Maker and Rayman Legends.

Still haven't beaten BOTW. Idk what it is, but it just doesn't seem to captivate me at all. Like, I've enjoyed every other Zelda like hell (well, some of them took closer to a year to finish, but still), but I just can't for the life of me finish this damn game. Bought it at release, and still struggling to find any motivation to play it. I paid good money for it, so I give it a chance every now and then, but I always end up playing max 3 hours and then not touch it for a few weeks/months afterwards. It's weird and a shame, but what can I do ;_:

See thats where were different. I absolutely loved odyssey and it was definitely the best 3D mario i've ever played and one of the best games on the switch but I went back to it a couple months after beating and just had no drive to replay it. I already did everything, I already saw all the secrets, I already got through all the challenges. I'd have to wait a couple years at the very least for it to have any replay value when my memories of the game fade.

I played it for 5,000 hours when it came out, I put in another 10k over the years since, got deeply involved in the modding community for it, still put in an 8 hour sitting playthrough every few months.

It was the last of its kind, nobody else with the resources to make something with this kind of quality, scope and depth are making games this fiddly and enthusiastic anymore. Paradox became a shell of its former self shortly after with the CK2 era.
No other game since lets you see this much of a well simulated, logical and self driving world unfold before you, and no other strategy just gives you as many things to do inside your own country to make a nation managing game feel fulfilling without just being a war game. I've spent entire 10+ hour playthroughs as small countries, not expanding the entire time, watching the world do its own thing and managing my pops and industries.

No I think you're right. Dark Souls is fun, but it's not game of the decade. Besides, any real connoisseur would pick Demon Souls for the superior story and music.

If you're going to pick game of the decade, you gotta at least pick something thaf had a huge influence on the industry, turning some studios to even try and copy your formula. Something like Overwatch, League of Legends, Minecraft, or Fortnite. Those games are not favorite of mine but they are for a lot of people.

Dark Souls is another one of those terribly overrated games and the worst part is it's usually loved by casual gamers who on top of it are dumb and witless enough to try shitting on others and boasting about how they're not casuals. Sekiro I just don't care about. Both are games for people who are mainstream enough to play Arma and Call of Duty but self conscious enough to pretend they're not. They're also big enough weebs to probably be the same people posting the godawful anime crap ITT but also enthusiastic enough to think Dark Souls somehow speaks to their love of "medieval history" which is superficial enough to think Dark Souls has more to do with pre-industrial Europe and less to do with being a weeb.

GOTY should probably be something like Disco Elysium.

dark souls was a very pretty slog interspersed with moments of fun when you passed a challenge... then back to slog. replaying a boss fight to learn the moves is cool, repeating an entire section just to reach the boss fight at each attempt is horseshit.

demon's souls had this same issue but less so.

Yes it was. Alpha versions 0.30 and earlier was retroactively renamed "Classic".

Regardless, the game we properly understand and call Minecraft today was not known in the 00's.

Star Wars: The Fallen Order. Produced by EA and DIsney.
That's about as mainstream as videogames can get (besides Minesweeper obv)
"Souls-like" is the new "GTA-like"

anyway:

>Best game of decade: Zelda BotW music was kinda weak overall; and why no dark/creepy enemies/characters/areas? there aren't even any skeletons of any kind. the death-bots are kind of effective, but visually they look cute. their kinda-anxious bleeping is like a gentle warning. "oh hey imma attack you soon I dont wanna to ambush you or anything". There's just an unreasonable Calamity sitting and waiting to be killed. Wind Waker was 333x darker than this, oh and the amount of healing you can carry is obscene, nothing is a threat unless the player wants it to.

>Best series of decade: Dark Souls they all have their own outstanding flaws; ie Lost Izalith
>Game that deserve way more props: Blur It's like F-Zero mixed with Diddy Kong Racing. though it uses boring IRL cars they don't perform like one
>Trendsetter: Skyrim I know you're reading this Todd, if you get away from "always online" and make ES6 a fun adventure I will buy your game

but really this is no different from "what were best games from March 6 2007 to March 6 2009?" yet im still posting help

Or Doom shareware. That was more distributed than windows in it's heyday. It outsold minesweeper at the time.

Anyway, I think naming one game of the decade is hard until we've got a couple of years perspective. Lots of very strong games in this topic. I'm not sure a game you can tear at so easily is the best though. Tonnes of criticisms made about BOTW even if it was loved by the people who played it, but then maybe most masterpieces are flawed? If so then any game of the decade sure makes me wish for a nuclear winter.

The game I've played most this decade has been stellaris but it's not the best, just moreish. They keep updating it, so if they do fucking nail it does it count as a game as at the time they got it right or when they first released it even though it's been overhauled a lot? I mean that applies to minecraft to some extent. Minecraft wasn't the best game, but arguably one of the most influential and if it wasn't written in java (and all the mods still sitting there now it's been ported to C) it'd probably have aged really well as the game becames more stable and playable over time too.

Skyrim wasn't really a trendsetter. It was the popular one after the Oblivion and Morrowind that created the trend. On the subject of bethesda I think you've just made me realise how that franchise will end now. We had minecraft and survival games, left4dead and zombie games, but the next step being soulslike, if Bethesda try to jump on another departed bandwagon maybe ES7 will be a soulslike.

pls no, I don't mind the souls games but I really don't think it would fit the scrolls series. I just want that hack-fraud Todd Howard to go back and look at Daggerfall and Morrowind and build it up from there, I know it seems like a foregone conclusion but it doesn't mean I can't dream.

Unfortunately as I wasn't a huge fan I think Skyrim might take this one. I think it's gotten the most attention for the longest continuous span of the decade. Multiple re-re-releases, tons of mods, and community that has only died down a little.

I really didn't like it, or BOTW, but I guess they're both up there. I think Wreckfest is an awesome game, and have been loving jurassic world evolution but neither deserve game of the year.

Im also not a big gamer like I once was so I might not know what I'm talking about. I think Skyrim is definitely a contender though.

But we all know the best game of all time is KOTOR2.

Fortnite is close but it didnt popularize a genre the way pubg did or invent one like Minecraft. Fortnite was a major success but it didnt have much of an impact on gaming in general.

Fortnite is already losing players, streamers, and revenue. It's a garbage fad game for tweens, already looking for the next awful trend. Not even a GOTY, let alone decade.

It plays like dog shit on PC and it's pretty linear. Witcher 3 was a huge improvement.

Witcher1-2 remade in the style of Wild Hunt would be tight as fuck. I tried playing both of them, and always gave up like 10 hours in. Remake would finally let me soak in all the cool lore without the garbage game play.

The first one is clunky and didnt age all that well but I still like it the most. I think I prefer games specifically designed for the PC.

Who is playing the Witcher series for gameplay though? I enjoyed the hell out of all 3 games, but none of them had what I would describe as good gameplay. Witcher 3 may have had the least bad gameplay out of all 3, but if you're looking for good gameplay then there are better options.

I liked all of them, but none of them really had outstanding gameplay. I mostly just enjoyed them for the stories and exploring the world/lore.

Witcher 3 last part felt really rushed. Most of the shit that happened in 2 was directly caused by Philipa and there is no option to skewer her in 3 or even choose not to side with The Lodge. If I'm being honest, the base game itself mostly felt rushed compared to the DLCs, especially hearts of stone. The whole grey area morality aspect of the game was dropped with 3 which made it felt rushed and more like a console game like Mass Effect or something. Also Radovid just portrayed really badly too. I know he's supposed to be insane but he's not an idiot which he definitely was in 3.

Willing to bet it was rushed. Happens with most of these sweeping epics. So much world building in the early stages, and then everything gets churned out for the last bits. Honestly, it makes sense. The only people who will ever see it are those who liked what came before enough to see it through to the bitter end.

I've played a lot of such games and never finished them, and feel that nothing was really lost. They just don't have that much to offer. At least nothing good enough to warrant going through the same gameplay loops for that long a time. Witcher 3 did at least have pretty strong characterizations and storytelling, a big exception for the industry.

If the gameplay is "press two buttons to win" then I don't want to play it. Swordplay should include dodging, parrying, and blocking. That's why I didn't like 2. There was no real strategy. You could have slapped the controller repeatedly and you'd probably still win.

I mean the text when you get banned. Maybe it's changed, it's been a while. Basically it says "this ban has no expiration date" which to me sounds like a perm. Then later in the text it says "this ban will never expire, or in two weeks"... Something like that. I've never waited to see if it actually expires because I've always gone to teh IRQs to settle it right then

This gen of consoles kind of sucked, it was exactly like the x360 ps3 generation but with better visuals and framerates. I mean, is there any ps4/xboner game that has gameplay that isn't possible on the x360/ps3?

The jump from ps2 to ps3 was GIGANTIC, like a 20 times increase in performance or something. The increase in performance from ps3 to ps4 is 3 times max, it really didn't enable any new experiences. Ps5 is gonna be just like ps4 pro but with slightly better graphics and faster load times much exciting

I don't know, I wanted this gen to have made use of gpu physics or ginormous worlds, or amazing AI or something that uses the increase in performance and RAM (from ps3 to ps4) for something more than just visuals. VR was pretty nice, I'll give you that, but I'm talking about software shit, not hardware shit ya feel me
