Thelogan Posted December 11, 2009 Share Posted December 11, 2009 (edited) Movies got one, so it started me to a-pondering. This has been a damn fine decade for gaming, we've had 2 solid console generations and a lot of innovation all around. Once I started looking into it, there's too much for me to do a top 10. If you can narrow yours down to 10, then you're way cooler than me. It's gonna be pretty hard for me to come up with a top 20, there's a lot of apples/oranges scenarios. Which is one reason why I've decided that handheld games deserve their own thread. We're just dealing with consoles and PC's here. If your personal list includes arcade games, more power to ya. I'm going to attempt to list potential candidates sorted by year like Jax did, but I'm sure there will be glaring omissions. 2000 Baldurs Gate II: Shadows of Amn (PC) Banjo Tooie (N64) Chrono Cross (PS1) Counter-Strike (PC) Crazy Taxi (DC) Deus Ex (PC) Diablo II Final Fantasy IX (PS1) Grandia II (DC) Homeworld (PC) Jet Grind Radio (DC) The Legend of Dragoon (PS1) Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes (DC) Persona 2: Eternal Punishment (PS1) Power Stone 2 (DC) Project Justice - Rival Schools 2 (DC) Resident Evil Code: Veronica (DC) Shenmue (DC) The Sims (PC) Skies of Arcadia (DC) Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (Multiple, but DC was the one that counted ) Unreal Tournament (PC) Vagrant Story (PS1) Virtua Tennis (DC) 2001 Black & White (PC) Civilization III (PC) Conker's Bad Fur Day (N64) Devil May Cry (PS2) Final Fantasy X (PS2) Grand Theft Auto III (PS2) Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox) Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy (PS2) Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (PS2) Paper Mario (N64) Phantasy Star Online (DC) Super Smash Bros.
