As 2019 draws to a close, let’s celebrate the end of the decade by crowning a Game of the Decade. After a little trawling through the Metacritic and OpenCritic lists, here are 20 of the most highly rated and frequently cited as GotY and award winning games released in the 2010s.
Everyone gets up to 4 votes, and results are hidden so that you won’t be swayed by others. If there’s a game that you feel should be on this list, add it in the comments and I’ll manually add them after the fact. The poll will automatically close at midday on December 31st.

Lol. Very tough. Think how tough it was for me getting the list down to 20, the maximum I could put into a poll At least this time we are free to change our votes as often as we like until the poll closes. I’ve already changed 2 of my 4 original picks.
Added Counter Strike as a manual vote, so say so in the comments if you want it to be one of your 4 choices. Darth, already counted yours as the first vote.
