Saw it in the movie thread but thought we could start the same thing here: What are everyone's favourite games of the decade?

Haven't really put too much thought into it but for me some of the favourites off the top of my head were:

Batman: Arkham City
Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Spider-Man
Sunset Overdrive
Rocket League
Mario Odyssey
The Last of Us
Forza Horizon 4
Horizon: Zero Dawn

So apparently Fallen Order only has 6-10 hours of actual gameplay. EA is gonna soak the #### out of people with expansion packs I'm guessing.

I saw that in the one review too and found it very unusual. Most other reviews are pegging it in the 15-20 hour range. I watched a great video review that said he beat the game with 90% completion at 19 hours play time, and expected it would take another 4-5 to fully complete. So the 6-10 hour guy probably had it locked on easy and ran through it to write his review, probably not the way most people will be playing something like this.

PC Gamer cites several reviewers in saying it's between 20 to 30hrs for the main campaign.

When it comes to the reviews that slap a number on the game in terms of gameplay length, most seem to be in agreement. For example Gamespot's reviewer spent 22 hours with Fallen Order, "but didn't uncover all of its secrets". IGN note that the main campaign takes about 20 hours to complete and Eurogamer clocked up 30, with some side activities completed for good measure.

I think I just get spoiled by RPGs because I still find the 20-30 hour games too short. I sank probably over 100 hours into Witcher 3.

These 2 stand alone as the 2 best, most memorable games for me over the 2010 decade. Lots of other fantastic games but this is my Mt Rushmore.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Even for RPGs 20-30 hours is perfect. I'm 15 hours into Trails of Cold Steel III and only halfway through the first chapter. Long grind is long, and I expect that I'll do the same with this one as I did the first two - rush the final chapter or two because I'm burning out.

For my top games of the decade, in no particular order:
- BOTW
- Mario Odyssey
- Fire Emblem Awakening
- Fire Emblem Three Houses
- Bravely Default
- Super Mario Maker
- Horizon Zero Dawn
- GTA V
- Nier: Automata


And honourable mentions for being my most played games by system:
- Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (NSW)
- Theathrythm Final Fantasy CC (3DS)
- Final Fantasy XV (PS4)
- Skyrim VR (PSVR)
- Trails of Cold Steel (PSV)
- Radiant Historia (DS)

That got me thinking, I wonder what games I have the most time spent since 2010, essentially making it my game of the decade

Motorsport Manager is first by a mile.
Company of Heroes 2
Squad
Hearts of Iron IV

Played about 90 minutes of Jedi Fallen Order and really enjoying it so far. Strong Prince of Persia vibes actually, but with Star Wars. Storyline seems pretty interesting and the new characters are all great.

Are you playing on the base consoles or the PS4 Pro/Xbox One X? I have the original Xbox and PS4 consoles and I've heard people have had some bad framerate issues on them. Making me hesitant to get it, at least right now.

Is anyone playing Civ6? Was thinking about starting a thread. Would be very keen to play some games against humans.

I’m on a base Xbox One — there have been some dips but they’re pretty infrequent, haven’t really bothered me. I have played a lot of Switch this year though where a lot of games have had just atrocious frame rate issues so maybe I’m a little more forgiving than most, haha.

What do you mean by can't keep up? Your monitor has a sub 60hz refresh rate?

144hz refresh rate or sub 1 ms response time might be necessary as poster may be playing on jedi master or jedi grand master difficulty.

Time to parry is heavily affected and high refresh rate may give 20 milliseconds more time to react to monsters attacks.

There is also HDR support for fallen order.

Just wondering also if anyone has tried Jedi fallen order on a regular xbox one or xbox 1 s and observed stage loading halt.

isn't the max FPS for console 60fps? And only on PS4 Pro? Are you saying they made a game that can't be properly played on harder difficulties on console? Obviously high refresh helps in competitive shooters, but on a game like this, there should really be no appreciable gameplay difference.

What I meant was, my beast of a machine runs the game on Epic mode looking awesome, but my crappy non HD monitor does not do it justice. It's also quite small. I want something bigger and brighter that can do the game justice.

Is that a suitable answer?

I just finished the story in Jedi Fallen Order, and it’s made me love Star Wars again. I truly thought that hack of a writer/director Rian Johnson had ruined the series for me going forward, but this game was brilliant.

Game of the Year 2019 for me. Previously I’d had Resident Evil 2 at the top of that list but Fallen Order was just so damn good.
