Selective Creation: Make a New Millennium List!



  • With only a few of these remaining, it makes sense we're getting closer in time, so lets build a list from the last complete decade of gaming: the 00's!

    What does this mean? Well, we're here to determine what the 30 best games from the 2000s are. ANY game originally released from January 1, 2000 to Decemeber 31, 2009 is up for nomination. A game MAY have been remastered, rereleased, remade, but it MUST have been originally available in the 2000s!

    As always - Quick rule refresher for potential new players:

    Here's the breakdown: You've been given the power to green-light 30 games, but here's the catch: these 30 games will be the ONLY games to be remembered from the 2000s. What should be the games that make the cut? By giving 30 select titles, you are essentially playing an inverse of Kill Your Babies.

    You can only give one title until four people have added after you OR 12 hours have passed since the last overall addition, NOT NECESSARILY YOURS, so think really hard about which game should be on the list. It could be your favorite game, or if your favorite is already present, then you can add another you hold dear. Or if you have no love or interest from the last complete decade of gaming, get to trolling if it makes you happy.

    To keep some diversity, I'm instituting a franchise cap. So if two entries of a series get put on the list, a third CAN NOT be added.

    Once you have given a game, please keep a running list going for the benefit of the next person that would like to play. Because I'm pitching the game, I will refrain from adding to the list unless absolutely necessary because it would be unfair for me to skew the list in my favor.

    And so Allies, what are the definitive 30 games that define the new millennium?

    Have fun!

    Portal
    Zone of Enders 2

    One of the best games (see my avatar, lol). Was gonna nominate a certain JRPG game, but I'm sure it will pop up anyway



  • Portal

    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

    The game I've put most hours into, and that's after spending 700+ hours on Skyrim...

    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
    Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

    My first big-time sandbox game, now that I think of it. I was so blown away by it (as an under-aged 14-year-old), the game changed my perspectives of what a game can actually be.

    I don’t know about angels, but it’s fear that gives men wings.

    Diablo 2
    Uncharted 2

    This game is just pure fun



  • @TokyoSlim was debating adding D2 myself, but decided Max needed the love more.



  • @El-Shmiablo I liked Max Payne a lot too



  • @TokyoSlim I think Kung Fu Mod for Max Payne and The Specialists for Half-Life were some of my most played games in the 2000s.

    Pretty much any game with slow motion gets, like, 3 extra points in my books.

    Also, I know this might be difficult or perhaps a little too niche, but can we do this game with mods/total conversions at some point, @Brannox ?

    Time Attack games are a lost art and this game is one of the best I've played.

    it had its issues, but it was one of the best experiences I had last gen. it was awesome getting to know all the characters, and I felt my conversations actually mattered, unlike Today's crappy dialogue systems.

  • @jipostus you played it after skyrim? What's your experience on it after playing games later in the series?

    This game just has to be on every list doesn't it? At least it's not 10...



  • People, there's Paper Mario missing.
