We weren’t joking when we said we are reminiscing. It’s the end of an entire decade, and we cannot let it go without looking back and cherishing the best of everything. Today we are counting down our picks for the 5 best video games of the 2010s. The gaming industry is booming at a fantastic pace. The visual appeal has gone from being right to absolutely jaw-dropping in the past decade itself. The switch from the 3rd generation consoles to the 4th has seen developers making the most out of the existing hardware. Not to mention that PC gamers have made the most out of this with their heavyweight gear, enhancing the entire experience. Let’s jump right into it. Again do not get offended if your favorite title did not make the list, our list is based on scores from gaming enthusiasts and critics. Enjoy.
- Grand Theft Auto V
Rockstar managed to curate an experience that not only deserves to be one of the best games of the decade but also reserves a place in the all-time list. A dark, gripping, and comic storyline with 3 extremely unique playable characters and the fantastic open-world experience are all a gamer can dream of.
- God Of War (2018)
You can’t talk about gaming and miss out on God of War. PlayStation confirmed its dominance in 2018 with a yet another exclusive title that shook the world. How can a game be so perfect in every sense? The seamless game mechanics, coupled with an emotional storyline and enchanting graphics, is what deserves the game of the year.
- The Last of Us/Remastered
With the release of The Last of Us 2 due in 2020, we look back at where it all started. This is where gamers experienced a storytelling experience like never before. Naughty Dog left no stone unturned. A zombie game was never the same post-TLOU. If you don’t believe us, just go and see the crowd reaction for the launch event of The Last of Us 2. Gamers don’t cry until it is that serious.
- Red Dead Redemption 2
This is hands down one of the best games of the modern age. Rockstar took 8 years to develop this masterpiece, and boy oh boy, is it good. The graphics are absolutely stunning, and the gameplay defies realism. This is a game where you might be fooled into thinking you’re actually watching a movie. The graphics are that good.
- Super Mario Galaxy 2
How can we ever forget this classic? Nintendo has never before been this serious about the Mario franchise ever before. A brilliant experience that outshines its own predecessor with creativity and challenge all the way.
There you go. We have summed up the decade’s best games. If you haven’t played any of the mentioned titles, we urge you to do so. If your favorite did not make the list, we urge you to keep calm and acknowledge the fact that we love those games as well.
