WRUP: What are your '10 Years, 10 Great Games' ?


In celebration of our tenth anniversary, all this week the Joystiq crew have been sharing our 10 favorite games of the past 10 years. You can watch all of the top picks from the Joystiq staff in the YouTube playlist above. Now let's hear yours!

Here are the rules we had to follow:

1) Yes, they must be from 2004-2014.
2) No remakes, reissues, HD remixes, etc. The original version of the game must be from the past decade.

Share your top ten after the break or just let us know what you're playing this weekend.

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): Hmmm, I kinda want to keep on keepin' on with Divinity: Original Sin. And doing my Hearthstone daily quests, of course.
  • Anthony John Agnello (@AJohnAgnello): After discussing the many merits of Nier with Danny this week, I think it's high time I go and finish those last few chapters of Drakengard 3. Like Susan, I'm also reading, namely the second book of The Witcher. Very little bawdiness.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): This weekend belongs to Valiant Hearts. I'll also put some time into Drakengard 3, and maybe start up another Nier playthrough.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): Unlike riding a bike, you can quickly forget how to shoot dudes in the face. Since Dragon's Teeth is coming up, I'm going to be back in Battlefield 4, practicing the solemn art of explodin' things and murderin' stuff.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt, Twitch): Guacamelee Super Turbo Exciting Neon Macho Cthulhu Crazy Wild Fantastic Extreme Pretty Edition on Xbox One, with local co-op! I'm very stoked on the local co-op thing.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): [...]
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): I want to play The Nightjar, but I might start the Blackwell series on iPad this weekend. There's also Valiant Hearts. I'll probably just play Sunless Sea.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): I'm very much enjoying Valiant Hearts right now. I'm kind of in the mood for something scary though.
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba, Twitch): I've got a stag do to attend this weekend that's hundreds of miles away, so I'll be using all that travel time to get more Dragon's Crown in on Vita.
  • Sam Prell (@SamPrell, Twitch): I think I'm all video-gamed out this week. I think I'll go enjoy the beautiful outdoors and maybe take a dip in the pool. ... WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME?
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): Nothing. I'm all about reading right now.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): Some of my college roommates are in town, so there's going to be a lot of Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2, Nintendo Land and Mario Kart 8. Also, cursing.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): I've played some Star Citizen this week, and I may continue to muck around in space – role-playing as a Viper pilot in an episode of Battlestar Galactica.
