@dmcmaster Facing "out" if it's on its end (vertical). You have to imaging it is on its side (horizontal) to get it right.
The frame rate of DES reaaaaally helps, I think.
Yakuza. Everything Yakuza. I was a big River City Ransom kid growing up, and I played every character action game I could looking for something that felt anywhere close. Yakuza was the thing that has been the closest in tone and in terms of combat being deep and shallow at the same time.
Gotta come in with my non-standard recs, because I don't think anyone else will bring them up.
3D Dot Game Heroes
Super Stardust HD
I really wish the PC version of Split/Second held up. It's on 360 as well, but I played through it on PS3.
3D Dot Game Heroes is just one of my favorite games, ever.
@yoshi It's not spying if you agree to the terms and conditions.
And yes yes, I know, it's weird. I'm saying this with a bit of a wink. But it's true. When you use these devices, buried in that horrible legalese is "we're listening to everything." No one is breaking into your device, you sign off and agree.
I really wanted to see something happen with those spooks.
@chocobop Older/retro adventure games. I'm a fan of this particular style, similar to Shadowgate and the like.
I've been enjoying it! I haven't played a game like this in a looooong time. It's neat to see one I haven't played being poked and prodded.
Been a moment (it's been a long, hard, couple of weeks). Happy to see Control make it, and I wonder if I hadn't ranked it where I did, if it would have made it at all?
Of course, there are spots of my other picks up there, and looking at my list again I wonder if the recent picks got more favor from me for being recent, but c'est la vie. The fact I'm seeing other games I enjoy immensely in the list, that I didn't even vote for, does us all well. I don't doubt we've picked the best of the decade.
I think we can all rest easy knowing, even if we see a game we love near the bottom, any game made this list has to be at least tried. Remember, it's of the DECADE. This list is paired down from THOUSANDS of games over the last ten years.
I've had to some cleaning lately to get rid of old, physical media. Especially where I own digital copies of older PC games.
My dilemma is: What about these WoW discs? These Dark Age of Camelot and other games that are linked to an account, via the key that came with the game?
Do you folks throw them out? Save them? Sell or give them away somewhere? They were not collectors' editions or the like, just standard copies. Should I feel bad about tossing them?
I've just anchored this bad boy in my browser so I can be ready. https://www.amazon.com/stores/page/07A20468-F527-4562-8FB4-23F8ACBCD3A8
You don't know the real Worms unless you've heard the Saga of Boggy B. from the OG soundtrack. :D
I was that nerd that was downloading Bjorn Lynne tracks of ModDB back in the 90s, before Worms, in High School (I'm old). LOVE this series, and Armageddon was definitely a high point.
And because it bears watching if you're a fan:
@axel Yeah, I'm always picking for me, and not what I think "deserves" to win.
This is why Hudson Hawk is in my Top 10 movies, alongside things like Evil Dead 2 and The 5th Element. I KNOW Citizen Kane is one of the best movies of all time, but it's not in a list of MY favorites.
