In tallying votes regarding its users favorite releases of 2019, Metacritic also allowed users to pick their favorite releases of the last decade. The categories voted on were for television, film, music, and video games. Interestingly, The Last of Us was most widely selected as the best game of the decade.
The full top 10 list for Metacritic users’ favorite games of the last decade is as follows:

  1. The Last of Us/The Last of Us Remastered — 331 Mentions
  2. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild — 163 Mentions
  3. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt — 118 Mentions
  4. Red Dead Redemption 2 — 63 Mentions
  5. Mass Effect 2 — 42 Mentions
  6. Bloodborne — 37 Mentions
  7. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim — 32 Mentions
  8. God of War — 32 Mentions
  9. Grand Theft Auto V — 31 Mentions
  10. Dark Souls — 30 Mentions
Three PlayStation exclusives made the list, two of which–Bloodborne and God of War–are a product of the PS4 era. Thankfully, one of the three will soon receive its long-awaited sequel. The Last of Us Part II hits stores on May 29th.

So what do you think? Is the Last of Us your game of the decade? Consensus pick despite a personal favorite?

Lock if old.

It's Bloodborne for me, but TLOU 1 is up there as well (maybe not top 5 for me, although it's still a pretty good game).

I'm not it would be my pick of the decade but I understand why it would be voted as such. It is a fantastic, generation defining game.

I liked Uncharted 2 more but it goes beyond a decade and so yeah, The Last of US would then fall to become my consensus pick.

Honestly I don't think I could narrow it down to just one gsme as being the top of the decade. There were just so many amazing games released the past 10 years that it would be hard to pick one. Or I'm just too lazy I dunno.

TLOU2 is not my game of the decade. I don't have an issue with the game it is just there are so many games that came along in the last 10 years I'd have a hard picking just one game.

I've never gripped onto a controller so tightly while gaming, ever. It is the best game I've ever played by a wide margin.

Amazing groundbreaking game.
I prefer Dark Souls/Bloodbourne but I can totally understand why it wins this.

Same as many of those games, its personal preference really

OH! Last of Us 1? Yeah that one was pretty freaking awesome, a game even my mom watched me play.

I'd say it stuck with me more than most this decade

It’s not even the best movie of the decade.

However, far be it from me to interrupt people enjoying things. I’m glad so many people felt so passionate about it. I just don’t see it whatsoever, unless you really, really specialize in and appreciate the cinematic nature of gaming being pushed forward.

THOU is definitely (in my opinion), the game of the decade, and, for me, the best game ever made with depth and meaning.
TLOU2 is without doubt the disappointment of the decade and to this day I find there's absolutely nothing of any depth or meaning to take from it ... unless you've got the sensitivity of a teenager that grew up on pop corn thrills.

No, not at all. I like it plenty but it's probably barely cracking my top 10. I'd put Witcher 3, God of War, GTA5, Half Life Alyx, Persona 5, maybe even Spider-Man ahead of it.

It's a straight forward story that had dated puzzle and combat mechanics when it was released. Fortunately it's carried by the interpersonal relationships of Joel and Ellie. If anyone deserves an award, it's the team of Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker. Their performances elevate the game into something that everyone should experience.

ignorant people will say what a magazine says.

A cultured player we know that there are many games that are the best game of the decade ... for example







and many more...
