Over on Yahoo Games, the staff has picked some of the best games of the last decade – in their opinion. Granted, I cannot find much fault when they have picked such illustrious titles such as Oblivion, Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, however, the list plays more like a who is popular and who is not. Most of the games they have listed are top sellers, and what I want to know is why they did not include games that were less mainstream but great games nonetheless. I mean, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater may have been popular, but does it deserve to be included with such games as Grand Theft Auto III? Was it really THAT good? To each his own I guess. This is what makes the gaming community such a wild, wonderful collective – the differences in opinions, gaming genres, and tastes. We are like a huge pot of multi-bean chili, and that is a great thing even if we sometimes get on one another’s nerves.For the full list of their Best Games of the Last Decade, I have complied it for you here. Basically, it is their top picks of Games of the Year. For the entire article, just click on the link at the end of this post.
