With 10 years worth of Games of the Year sitting there it only makes sense to finish off the catch-up with a Game of the Decade to choose the best of the best from the past 10 years. So the 5 Games of the Year up for the award are.
2010 – 2019:
- God of War (2018)
- Heavy Rain (2010)
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011)
- The Last of Us (2013)
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2015)
I jumped around a bit with this one until I finally made a choice. My original thought was The Witcher 3, then from that I went to God of War and then from that to Skyrim. Once I had Skyrim in mind the other contenders couldn’t shake it from the top spot. Slyrim stood firm in it’s spot no matter how many contenders I threw at it. The game is one that I have returned to many times since it’s release and now that I’ve named it my Game of the Decade I might go back to it again. It is an experience that I can go back to time and time again even 9 years on since it’s original release. At the time of writing this Skyrim is yet to feel old, It is a modern classic like the last few Elder Scrolls games before it. Number 6 has very big shoes to fill but if anyone can pull another Game of the Year/Decade, my money would be on Bethesda.

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim as your Game of the Decade is a great pick. One of the great testaments to the game is the crazy amount of modifications that people have created for the game over the years. These mods change literally every aspect of the game. Although I haven’t played it yet, I’ve heard and read tremendous praise for the standalone Skyrim mod, Endereal: Forgotten Stories. It’s free on Steam and is considered one of the greatest mods ever created. Skyrim is Bethesda’s finest creation.

Thank you for your comment. I myself have installed more mods for the game than my computer would thank me for.
My original review for Skyrim was done on the vanilla version back in 2011 and even then before the Special Edition graphical upgrades, the DLC’s and the mod’s it was a fantastic game.
