With 2020 and a new decade just beginning the other day (yesterday), it just makes sense that we should take a look back at the past decade and the games that made each year special.

I’ve enlisted help from two of my closest friends, Jon and Christian, to give me their favorite game from each year as well as choosing a Game of the Decade.

Each one of the games we chose made an impression on us right from the start, whether it was first swinging through New York City as Spider-Man, exploring a destroyed Las Vegas, or living your best life in Los Santos, video games leave an impression on gamers that we will never forget.

With 2020 and a new decade in front of us, we could only hope to have the opportunity to play even more incredible games that will bring us excitement and joy just like the games we’ve played in the past.

Happy 2020!
