NeoGAF 'Game of the Decade' vote (closes 22nd April)

Why is it 11 years though? Should be 2011-2020 (1 through 10 is 10, 1 though 11 is 11; we're talking the most basic of math here). Also why is Battlefield 1 on there instead of Battlefield 4 which many believe to be the best BF?

1) Portal 2
2) Deus Ex: Human Revolution
3) The Last of Us (the first one)
4) Battlefield 4
5) Nier Automata
6) Just Cause 3
7) Marvel's Spider-man

I put 7 in case BF4 and JC3 get rejected for not being on the list.
You will need to vote through the Google link for your votes to count.

Letting you know because I'd really like Human Revolution to do well :messenger_smiling:


Is 'That Pure Potato'
1. inFAMOUS: Second Son
2. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt
3. Skyrim

I decided to go with the ones I enjoyed the most at the time. There are games that stood on various stronger pillars (the narrative excellence of The Last of Us and Uncharted 4, the world design of Spider-Man, the wordless storytelling of Journey, etc). But these were the three I remember getting completely lost in until I finished them - never got bored with them, didn't take long breaks away from them, and discussed them endlessly online.

1 Persona 5
2 13 sentinels
3 Witcher 3
4 Skyrim
5 Yakuza 0

Breath of the wild
Persona 4 golden
Nirer Automata
Zero escape

In all honesty, I could've easily picked more. This decade wasn't too bad for games.


So many good options... Here's a list in no particular order of games I really enjoyed the last decade, way more than other titles.
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • The Witcher III: Wild Hunt
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  • Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Dying Light
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Battlefield 3
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)
  • Far Cry 3
  • Overwatch
  • Ghost of Tsushima
  • God of War
  • Half Life: Alyx
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
  • Marvel's Spider-Man


1. Sekiro
2. Bloodborne
3. The Witcher 3
4. Driveclub
5. Resident Evil 2

This is obviously such an easy win for Driveclub that I had to give other games a chance at winning.

It's mad to me that no Dark Souls games make my own top 5. Sekiro and Bloodborne raised the bar in terms of my enjoyment of their games. That studio plays a huge part of why I keep up to date with gaming news in general and still spend my money on consoles and games. Huge shout out to them. They easily have 3 games that could legit be the game of the decade to me. If they don't exist, my interest in whole is massively reduced and I'm probably leaning heavily into retro games.

Witcher makes my list on the strength of the amazing DLC. All packaged together, shockingly good.


has been asked to post in 'Grounded' mode.
1. Uncharted 4
2. TLOU 1
3. Nier Automata
4. Spider-man
5. The Witcher 3

1. Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
1. Dark Souls
2. Bloodborne
3. The Witcher 3
4. Demon's Souls
5. Disco Elysium

I like Bloodborne more than Dark Souls, but it's undeniable Dark Souls had more of an impact on gaming. Wish I had space for Nier Automata.

Kind of bizarre to go 2011-2021 rather than a true decade like 2010-2020


1. Bloodborne
2. Breath of the wild
3. Dark Souls 3
4. Halo MCC
5. Link Between Worlds


Incredibly, 3 of my top 5 games of the decade aren't on the list, those being:

1. Rain World
2. Pathologic 2
3. Subnautica

So I went with the tried and trusted:
1. Bloodborne
2. Breath of the Wild
3. Astro Bot
4. The Witcher 3
5. Sekiro

Wow, Outer Wilds never made the cut? May have been my third spot.

1. Bloodborne
2. Breath of the Wild
3. Half-Life: Alyx
4. Sekiro
5. Dark Souls III

It’s tough and obviously there are other games I loved about as much as these too.
Hmmm, with a trophy level of 526 it's safe to say I play a lot of games and a point comes where it's nigh impossible to narrow things down to a top 5, 10, whatever, I've played too many and so many of them genuinely fantastic. If put on the spot, today, April 2nd 2022 I'd say may top 5 was the following, might be somewhat different tomorrow:

2. Bloodborne
3. The Witcher 3
4. Sekiro

Dark Souls 3, Persona 5 R, Yakuza 0, Nier Automata, Bioshock Infinite, God of War, TLoU, FFVIIR, Demon's Souls, Death Stranding, Returnal, Rayman Origins, Hades, Hitman Trilogy and The Evil Within are way up there too.
