Selective Creation: Make the Best Modern Day List!



  • After making going through several decades of greatness, it's time to go contemporary: Let's pick the 30 best games since January 1, 2010!

    What does this mean? Any game, on any console is eligible IF and ONLY if it was ORIGINALLY released starting on 1/1/10. So a port of a game released before then? Doesn't count.

    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 that should define the current decade. 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 modern day, 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 have released in the teens?

    Have fun!



  • Yakuza 5

    2015 was a great year for games and this was my personal GOTY from it. I'll probably end up nominating the other top three contenders down the line as well.



  • Yakuza 5
    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    Still love this game. One of my fav TBS titles.



  • Yakuza 5
    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    Persona 5

    Let's put the best JRPG of modern times on this list, only to watch it be unfairly killed two seconds into this game 😅



  • Yakuza 5
    XCOM: Enemy Unknown
    Persona 5
    Divinity: Original Sin

    I'm obviously biased, but still, it deserves a shot on this list!



  • This list will bring a lot of tears when we move into the KYB phase.

    Yakuza 5
    XCOM: Enemy Unknown
    Persona 5

    Naughty Dog's best, which is saying a lot.

    Before the release of Persona 5, you could quote me as saying this was the best RPG released in the past few years. Since I can't put Persona 5 twice, I'll settle for this heartwarming gem that has a great sense of humor and one of the better soundtracks out there.
