Is Demon's Souls the most important game of the last decade?

Probably not.

2000~2009 had A LOT of going on.

It certainly is the responsible for a whole new style of game, tho, which is very important.

Wii Sports and Minecraft are the most important games of the last decade.  

It's not a new style of gaming. It's action RPG game with stamina based. 

Souls-like is not a new Genre. subgenre, at a best. Great and Excellent games is not necessarily a revolutionary genre per se.

Wii Sports is completely irrelevant for gaming.

Minecraft in the other hand is very important.

Soulslike even became a term like Metroidvania or Roguelike, it's a style, I never said it was a new genre.



@Jpcc86. I like Demon's Souls the best.

I can't get into any Souls like game. Maybe it's because I'd rather grind for hours and get it done at a reasonable amount of tries than just fail and fail over and over again with little to no progress. Slow and steady progress seems more rewarding.

With Bloodborne I accidentally went to the high level area first, got too much blood (xp) and good items. Was very frustrating for the hour or so, but then after that the easier part of the game was so trivial.

If you do grind, you can make these games quite easy imo.



Haven't given Sekiro nor Demon's Souls 3 fair shakes yet.

1. Bloodborne
2. Dark Souls
3. Nioh
4. Demon's Souls
5. Dark Souls 2

I did not enjoy Dark Souls 2 much at all. The other 4 were good times. Especially Bloodborne.

Wii Sports wasn't a revolution and as time goes by it seems to not have been all that important, relatively speaking.  A revolution would represent a significant change in the landscape of gaming.  I don't see much evidence of that. 

Something doesn't have to be new to be important, either.  Gran Turismo wasn't the first racing sim but it undoubtedly had a large influence going forward.

what? motion base games exist because of that. Sony and Microsoft copied Nintendo just because of Wii Sports.  Vr games are only possible because motions controls. It,s revolucionarie, beyong gaming. Nintendo bundle Wii Sports because it's the beast motion games, at the time. 

Your taste is different than historical importance. I don't like Minecraft, but i know, it's a landmark of game. Likewise Wii Sports. The game history is was before Wii Sports and After Wii Sports.
