2010, by a country mile.

Mario Galaxy 2, Mass Effect 2, Bayonetta, Bioshock 2, Halo Reach, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Monster Hunter Tri, Vanquish...

To this day I have never bought as many games in a year as I did in 2010, or even come close.

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

Could have at least mentionned some big 3DS releases in your list too ...

Though, if I count those years without my own experience from playing older titles when I came into "gaming mode" back in 2015, then early 2010's and 2017 seems like clear winners to me.

Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Breath of the Wild, Nier Automata, Hollow Knight, Super Mario Odyssey, and also Persona 5 if we're including the western release date. And a few more.

There's no contest at all, to be honest.

Yeah it may be recency bias, but it is pretty damn hard to compete with 2017.

Around the Network

Alan Wake (one of my favorite games ever) and Super Mario Galaxy 2 came out in 2010, so I'll vote for that.

I have a Youtube channel... A Twitter, and... Yeah.

Wow, I just did a count of my collection and own 22 games from 2010.

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

The Ps4 games in the first half of 2017 are enough to make it the best.

Zelda, Mario, Horizon and Persona 5 are all 10's for me. Resident Evil 7 in VR is a 10 as well, lower score if you don't play it in VR.


Just for Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and Style Savvy: Styling Star. Incredible games.
