Best Games of the Decade – Part 1 ➤ Best Games of the Decade – Part 2 ➤ Dragon Ball Z Kakarot Video ➤ Bloodborne Review ➤ Subscribe to join the DeModcracy! ➤ Twitch ➤ Discord ➤ What are the best video games of the decade? Best games for PS4? Xbox One? Nintendo Switch? And what are the best games of 2019? I’ve asked myself all of these questions and more. Unlike the Top 100 Best Games of All Time, I wanted to create a list of my own best video games of the 2010s. And today, I give my top 10 best games of the decade. This list will be great to reflect against the Top 100 Best Games. Keep in mind that this list is based solely on my opinion, so there will definitely be some choices that go against the grain. I hope you enjoy the video, be sure to subscribe for the rest of the list, and I’ll see you all next time!

    Me when no Mario 🥺💀

  5. Fadıl Kılıç on September 8, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    why nobody is talking about bioshock infinite is over skyrim, dark souls and witcher? dude wtf

  6. TS on September 8, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    This is the most reddit list imaginable…

  7. Aditya Pandey on September 8, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    If someone tells you that Bioshock Infinite is in his ‘top 10 games of the decade’ list, you should know that person is mindf**kingly dumb.

  8. Ido Koren on September 8, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    3. Factorio
    2. The Last Of Us
    1. Bloodborne

  9. Kyan Mori on September 8, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    This might be something I’ll regret saying. I remember when videogamedunkey said he didnt like FF7 remake. I have a similar experience with horizon zero dawn. I didnt like it and I dropped it because I got bored. The story was really good but the gameplay was being for me, it felt repetitive and the game felt unpolished and was slow. I shouldn’t complain about a slow story because the last of us is m favourite game of all time but that story is the best story ever. Hate me all you want but I dont know if I’ll ever pick it but up.

  10. Aditya Pandey on September 8, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    HZD should be in top 30, and definitely not in top 10. Don’t rate games until and unless you have played the game. Every game reviewer just copies his/her script from IGN’s review. Horizon Zero Dawn is the most OVERRATED game of all time. Guys don’t waste your money on this horrific, pathetic and painfully-boring game.

    arkham origins > city

  12. patchory on September 8, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Nadine will pick me up with one arm

  13. mastervids gaming on September 8, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    What’s so interesting to me about these top 10 games of the decade lists is how much the games I would consider unrivaled in quality are ranked lower than games that I would rank extremely low. For example The last of us wouldn’t even make my list nor would God of war. They are great games but I have played so much better, however i must admit my memory of release dates is pretty bad so some of the games on my list might actually have come out after the turn of the decade. but for those curious here is my top 10
    1. Dark souls 3
    2. sekiro
    3. Persona 5 royal
    4. Celeste
    5. terraria
    6. Ghost of tsushima
    7. Bravely default
    8. Qube 2
    9. Portal 2
    10. Dark souls 2

  14. Ezzat Sabbah on September 8, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    The Witcher 3?
    Red dead redemption 2?
    Dark Souls 3?

  15. Syientist on September 8, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    1. Legend of Zelda: BotW
    2. Persona 5: Royal
    3. Last of Us

    6. God of War
    7. Final Fantasy VII Remake
    8. Dark Souls 3
    9. Super Mario Odyssey
    10. NieR: Automata

  16. LENGHONG KOH on September 8, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    Sony being a Publisher/Developer wise is simply the greatest, nobody came close to that. What they are really good at is that their ability to spot small/struggling game developer, give them a project to work on, and eventually elevate them.

  17. a person on September 8, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    the last of us (and its sequel) are not my favorite games to play, but i do think they are they highest quality games that have ever been made. no story in any medium has had more of an emotional impact on me than the story of ellie and joel. tlou2 is 100% deserving of being the most awarded "game of the year" of all time.

    my one major disagreement out of the games i have played is with god of war. everything about that game was underwhelming for me, so much so that i didn’t actually finish it. its biggest failing by far was the way it started trying to tug at my heartstrings right out of the gate when i had no attachment to the characters whatsoever. if you try to make me feel things about one character’s complex relationship with another before either character has even given me a reason to like them let alone truly care about them, it’s going to fall extremely flat. it would be like throwing a player into the last of us without showing them the intro with sarah first. i made it maybe 8-10 hours into the game and i still just…..did not care at all, and the combat–while decent–was not unique or fun enough to keep me going when i lacked any kind of emotionally compelling reason to continue.

    other than that, solid list.

  18. _voltage _ on September 8, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    The second you mentioned god of war, I got goosebumps

  19. Aryan Sadat on September 8, 2021 at 10:37 pm

  23. h j on September 8, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Bioshock Infinite…. Bruh…. Are you sure?

  24. Aditya Pandey on September 8, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    7:16 absolutely wrong, what a f**king liar, No you idiot the world is not affected by your choice of dialogue.

  25. Brambles on September 8, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    I liked three houses until I played it more… the first playthrough I did of it with the black eagles I really loved, and it became a contender for my favorite fire emblem game. But the route clearly felt unfinished and ended abruptly while leaving a lot of questions unanswered, as such I felt compelled to play the other routes and my god, it was not a good idea.

    The game clearly ran out of development time and it shows in so many areas, the routes are wayy too similar and reuse maps ad nauseum, silver snow is an almost copy paste of verdant wind ( and yes I know it was made as the baseline but it’s still the most boring one and is missing multiple maps ). Not to mention the fact they put in some characters and groups we could’ve done without. Those who slither in the dark are terrible antagonists and feel so shoehorned in it’s crazy, the last thing this game needed to be more compelling was one note evil guys to blame pretty much every single problem fodlan has been plagued by on.

    The game would’ve been a million times better if they were more realistic about what they could and couldn’t do with the time and budget they had. If they ditched those who slither in the dark, who absolutely suck and make the whole conflict way less interesting, and ditched the golden deer entirely, thus only keeping 2 routes instead of 4. I’m sorry to the people that like them but the golden deer have no reason to exist, they are completely disconnected from pretty much all the events that happen in the game, while the other 2 houses are a lot more concerned by the main conflict and events that transpire.

    With just the black eagles, blue lions and the church, the story becomes a lot more focused and interesting while still allowing for better developed routes due to more time and care being allocated to them

  26. Za Taiyō on September 8, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Let’s gooo!
    God of War is probably my 3rd place as well!

  27. RiKeX on September 8, 2021 at 10:48 pm

  28. Patrik Králík on September 8, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    I hoped for Persona 5 would make the list.

    Wasn’t dissapointed!

  29. sineater21 on September 8, 2021 at 10:51 pm

  34. Nick Swift on September 8, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    God I feel like Bioshock infinite is almost forgotten, it’s almost painful once you think about how awesome that game is

  35. Gloxinia king of traps on September 8, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    can we all agree that almost every FromSoftware game is a masterpiece

  36. Bruhmastra on September 8, 2021 at 11:00 pm

  45. w wyborn on September 8, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    bloodborne is the greatest game of all time man , doserves nothing but number 1

  46. AutoMagically _ on September 8, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    I love how candid you sound in this. It sounds like you’re delivering this top ten for a huge professional audience and that you have some huge stakes riding on its delivery. The next person that tells me games are a waste of time are getting redirected to this video so they can hear all the feelings evoked by these games come forth. Well done!

  47. Fernando Caixeta on September 8, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    I love Bioshock Infinite! Great inclusion!

  48. Jayson Tamura on September 8, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    the disgust comes from the love of bioshock 1

  49. Cooper Levinson on September 8, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    I preferred the first bioshock to the second one

  50. Monolith Hishino on September 8, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    While gamers call Mass Effect one of the greatest stories of the decade, for me Persona 5 had the best character development I’ve ever connected to any game. It made me realize if every human being goes through so much shit in life. What made P5 my favorite game of the decade was the story, characters, confidants,and some of the greatest soundtracks I listened to daily. It’s as if Atlus played a ton of Mass Effect.
