Every videogame site worth its salt is currently putting together their best of the decade list, so why should we be any different? I fielded the idea in the General Games Chat thread last month and there was some enthusiasm.

As such, we're voting on the best videogames released from the beginning of 2010 to the end of 2019.

Here's some links to lists and articles from other sites to inspire you.

Wikipedia article of 2010s in videogaming
Eurogamer
Polygon
Paste
DualShockers
KontrolFreek
Cnet

Here's the format we're following. We're voting in the thread, with the opportunity to vote for a total of 20 games, split across 2 distinct lists, covering major studio games and indie games.

Your lists of 10 will be ranked where your first place game receives ten points, your second place receives nine, and so on.

The thread can police whether something belongs in the 'Major Studio' or 'Indie' category. I am willing to be fairly liberal with definitions on this. Games with blurry lines like Ori and the Blind Forest, What Remains of Edith Finch, etc. are up for debate.

Here's the format to use:

TOP 10 MAJOR STUDIO GAMES

1. [name of game] - 10 POINTS
2. [name of game] - 9 POINTS
3. [name of game] - 8 POINTS
4. [name of game] - 7 POINTS
5. [name of game] - 6 POINTS
6. [name of game] - 5 POINTS
7. [name of game] - 4 POINTS
8. [name of game] - 3 POINTS
9. [name of game] - 2 POINTS
10. [name of game] - 1 POINT


TOP 10 INDIE GAMES

1. [name of game] - 10 POINTS
2. [name of game] - 9 POINTS
3. [name of game] - 8 POINTS
4. [name of game] - 7 POINTS
5. [name of game] - 6 POINTS
6. [name of game] - 5 POINTS
7. [name of game] - 4 POINTS
8. [name of game] - 3 POINTS
9. [name of game] - 2 POINTS
10. [name of game] - 1 POINT


Votes close at midnight on December 31st. Get voting!

TOP 10 MAJOR STUDIO GAMES

1. Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild
2. Super Mario Galaxy 2
3. The Last of Us
4. Portal 2
5. Animal Crossing: New Leaf
6. Splatoon 2

Slight Nintendo bias. Given Microsoft published Ori, I've put it in this category.

Will have a think about the indie list.

I knew my lists of top games stored on my ‘phone would come in handy!

TOP 10 MAJOR STUDIO GAMES

1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2. Super Mario Odyssey
3. Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
5. Mario Kart 8/Deluxe (if you’re counting them separately then Mario Kart 8, but it’s down at 6. You shouldn’t count them separately)
6. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
7. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice
8. Kid Icarus Uprising
9. Xenoblade Chronicles 2
10. Super Mario Galaxy 2


Anyone not including Ghost Trick is a scab.

TOP 10 INDIE GAMES

1. Celeste
2. Untitled Goose Game
3. Baba Is You
4. Jackbox Party Pack 3
5. Undertale
6. Overcooked 2
7. Hollow Knight
8. Deltarune
9. Rocket League
10. Guacamelee


That indie list is much more fluid, mostly because I can barely remember any indie games I played off Switch. (I remember maybe 2 from the Wii U?) Also, do Jackbox and Rocket League count? I think Psyonix were indie at that point, but I’m not sure what Jackbox Games counts as.

Really wish I could have clicked with Hotline: Miami. So many people raved about it but I just couldn't see why myself.

Tempted to give it another shot actually.

Aww no ahah, just a laptop trackpad? If it's any consolation, it can't be worse than when I tried to play Portal with one :p

Yup! I’ve heard it’s very good iff you have a mouse.

I’m reminded of the time my dad tried to play BioShock Infinite with a trackpad...
