We ain't outta here in ten minutes, we won't need no rocket to fly through space
My last 10 GOTYs in order are

Divinity: Original Sin
Breath of the Wild
Red Dead Redemption 2
Half-Life: Alyx
Metroid Dread
Elden Ring

I haven't got the brain space to actually come up with my 10 favourites from 10 years though, that's too much, and obviously I haven't played every game from every year (Ori was my 2020 but I just finished Alyx so, retroactive)
Hopefully I won't be missing anything:

1. Elden Ring
2. Shin Megami Tensei V
3. Lost Judgment
4. Half-Life: Alyx
5. DOOM Eternal
6. Monster Hunter Rise
7. Crystal Project
8. Nier Replicant
9. Strangers of Paradise
10. Live A Live

edit: forgot about Metroid Dread, fug.

I couldn't finish it, the amount of really crazy parties there is just making the game silly, but I had a moment or two with it.
I stopped playing it when I was inside this crazy nuclear sect or whatever the name was.
But good they you liked it.


I didn't play enough of wasteland 3 to put it on this list but I ended up buying it on sale recently cause it was a lot of fun. Gotta try signalis too!

Bioshock(got my last trophy February 12th 2013 so I'm grandfathering it in even though it's older 👾)

yeah the game does have its weird moments but i really liked the amount of choice and consequence that the game offered , i screwed up the build the 1st time i played it and i used a trainer to finish the game so instead of getting a proper ending there was some kind of song that was mocking me for using cheats , i really didnt expect that :messenger_tears_of_joy:

He's asking from January the 1st 2020 to present, it's just 3 years.

OH, "this" decade. Bit easier. I still haven't got it in me to rank them right now :messenger_tears_of_joy: so in no particular order. I'm kinda surprised Hades didn't make this cut but I only beat it once in 7 hours and never touched it again. Maybe I should.

This could change tomorrow.

Half-Life: Alyx
Metroid Dread
Resident Evil 8
God of War Ragnarok

Biggest surprises for me was The Ascent, because it’s an awesome twin-stick shooter RPG and the critics scores are so low, and Returnal, because I hate roguelikes but it’s possible to save through cloud and then it’s absolutely fantastic, and Scorn, because of the low scores and it gave me one of the most memorable playthroughs in recent times.
Bonus praise to Insomniac for including movie quality Swedish voiced audio in Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart and for giving me one of the best family playthroughs ever 🤗
