Good thread. I just made it sticky and should work nicely along side our annual GOTY thread which will kick off soon.

As for the topic, this is a hard one! It's too easy to be influenced by recency bias. Witcher 3 is my hands down clear number one but it will take some thinking of the other two.

People are forgetting some of the classics on the old generation of consoles that were still around for a few years too

Loved Overwatch as well and The Last of Us probably had the best story.

My dudes, we are going to tally these up at the end for something to do. If anyone wants to 3, 2, 1 their answers that will be fantastic (as in your first choice gets 3 points). If you don't I'm just going to assume it's 3, 2, 1 from top to bottom.

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The Last Of Us

New Vegas was clear cut for me but the other two were very, very hard. Herizon Zero Dawn was close but ultimately Witcher 3 and TLOU got to me on an emotional level. Skyrim would round out my top five if it were a top five list.

This is hard. Witcher 3 is number one, by some margin, but I'm finding it hard to determine number two and three. A lot of great games this decade.

Fallout 4

Most are pretty recent as most of the games i liked in the early parts of 2010 onwards where handheld titles which don’t really stack up with these games.

F4 a suprise to some but I spent a stupid amount of time with it and would buy it again if it does (and should) come to the switch.

BOTW is number 1 by a landslide for me

Was going to put uncharted 2 at 3 but checked and it was 2009. Could toss a coin for third spot, God of War, RDR2, UC3, Death Stranding.

I have yet to play Witcher 3 :(

Mass Effect 2
Doom 2016
Titanfall 2

So many games this decade I have yet to play. Life getting in the way. This is the decade I finished uni, got first "proper" job, got married, had son so it's not surprising haha, but still. Will catch up when the boyo is in school (he's not even 2 yet!).
