Well, the best game of the Decade for me wasn't even released within that Decade, it just missed it in fact: SILENT HILL. There's just no game, currently, closer to my heart. "Survival Horror" ftw!
Now, what do I think were the games that truly pulled so much of my time within the Decade, it was a three way tie for me:
- Super Smash Bros Melee
- The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
- Gears of War
These three consumed the majority of my time. I had longer play times with these three than any other games.
The DEFINING Game of the Decade: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Still the most brilliant game I've ever played!
