The Sunday Times: The Games of the Decade

ST3 In today’s Sunday Times magazine, a feature article was written on the best games of the decade. The cover might have been a bit misleading seeing as it read “10 Best of the Decade” when in fact it should be noted that it’s 10 (as in ten years) – Best of the decade. Some might have thought that it was the ten best games of the decade, but there were a number of titles mentioned by Matthew Vice, a writer who often contributes on NAG’s website, mainly reviews of games.

Now the article was long, and I had enough trouble trying to scan the cover seeing as it’s bigger than my damn scanner, so I don’t know about scanning the pages.

I will say that mentions for games of the decade included went as follows:


Silent Hill, Phantasy Star Online, The Sims, American McGee’s Alice


Devil May Cry,Max Payne, Halo: Combat Evolved, Ico


Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, The Elder Scrolls III, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Walker, Battlefield 1942


Soul Calibur II, Prince of Persia, Call of Duty, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic


World of Warcraft, Half-Life 2


Guitar Hero


Gears of War, Dead Rising


Assassin’s Creed,Overlord, Mass Effect, Final Fantasy XII, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune


No More Heroes, Little Big Planet, Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Red Faction: Guerilla, Scribblenauts

Resident Evil 4, Timesplitters: Future Perfect (No F.E.A.R.?)




Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Mass Effect (mentioned twice), (No STALKER?)


Race Driver: Grid, Far Cry 2

Guitar Hero, BioShock, and Modern Warfare 2 were highlighted as being some of the most ground-breaking or best of the best games of the last ten years.

As you can see, there may have been a few omissions, but then again that’s the fun about lists and articles like this. It’s all down to each person’s opinion. I’ll be honest: there are a lot of games in the article that I don’t care about, and there’s some games that weren’t mentioned at all that I enjoyed.

In addition to all this, the Nintendo Wii was considered the most innovative piece of hardware from the “noughties” (I hate that term).

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
