We did the 2010s as they've just ended, but how about the "00s", what do you think was the best game of 2000-2009, and why?

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Around the Network

Resident Evil 4!...

In terms of industry impact though, gonna have to go with Halo Combat Evolved.

A lot of great games but I would say the game was revolutionized gaming forever was GTA III 2001

I trust no one, not even myself.

Shadow of the Colossus.
Demon's Souls depending on how I'm feeling, lol.

1 Wii sports by a lot
2. Metroid Prime
3. CoD4 Modern Warfare
4. Uncharted 2, I guess...

Around the Network

Halo: Combat Evolved. It was THE reason I bought an Xbox at launch over PS2 or GameCube. And to me it lives up to the hype. I had dozens of Halo LAN parties. It was good times.

Metroid prime
Bioshock 1

Top 3

Super Smash Bros. Brawl for me.

Paper Mario TTYD

If I was to do a top 10 in no particular order other than being numbered:

1.  Shadows of Destiny PS2

2.  Uncharted 2 Among Thieves PS3

3.  Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction PS3

4.  Devil May Cry PS2

5.  Grand Theft Auto San Andreas XBOX

6.  The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion XBOX

7.  Orange Box PS3


9.  Bioshock XBOX 360

10. Borderlands PS3

Also keep in mind that this is my opinion and games can come and go from this list (Gears of War 2, God of War 1 and 2 can easily be there). There is so many great games from the 2000's and there were many I just didn't get around to playing (Shadow of the Colossus).
