Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us has been voted as the best game of the last decade by Metacritic users.
Each year, Metacritic invites its users to list their favorite TV shows, movies, games, and albums of the past calendar year, and to mark the end of the decade, users were also asked to list their single favorite release of the 2010s.
Resident Evil 2 Remake was the best game of 2019 (2088 votes), followed closely by Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (1813 votes). Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding has taken the 3rd spot on the list for 2019.
If we take a look at the list for the best games of the decade, the list is very different. Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us has been named as the best game of the decade. The game initially released on the PlayStation 3 and a remaster was later released on the PlayStation 4. Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has taken the 2nd spot on the list, followed by CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (3rd spot).
Other honorable mentions are, of course, Red Dead Redemption 2 (#4), Mass Effect 2 (#5th spot), Skyrim (#7), God of War (#8) and GTA V (#(9).
Following the publication of Metacritic’s article, Naughty Dog took to Twitter to express its gratitude for naming The Last of Us as the best game of the decade.
