The 50 Best Video Games of the 21st Century

The Guardian has debated back and forth and settled on the 50 best video games of the 21st century. While we could debate and debunk some of the entries, and we feel that there are some glaringly egregious omissions. (League of Legends/DOTA 2 anyone?) Still, we were pretty impressed with this list overall. They gave Minecraft the nod as the number one game of the 21st century, which I don’t necessarily agree with. Still, I would have a hard time arguing against it.

The Guardian has the full list with explanations as to why here.

Their top 10 is pretty solid. Selections like Bioshock and Portal 2 are great, even though I preferred Portal 1 more. Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a bold call at #2, however they did put Majora’s Mask on which is a solid choice. Let us know what your favorite games of the 21st century are, as we’re going to try and put together our list next week and we want your opinions!
