Half-Life 2 Named Game Of The Decade By VGAs

Posted on Friday, December 7 @ 19:45:16 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

Most developers would be happy with the opportunity to win a Game of the Year award, but how about Game of the DECADE?

Out of the thousands of games that have come out since 2002, Half-Life 2 was named the best at this year's VGAs. That's saying a lot when you consider Super Mario Galaxy 2, Bioshock, and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves came out within the same timeframe.

It's hard to remember just how important of a game Half-Life 2 was, but truthfully it wrote the script for what is now the modern formula for success. It had a compelling narrative driven by AAA voice-acting. It had gorgeous visuals with a physics system unlike anything the world had seen before. Most of all, it had the gravity gun, a simple weapon which proved that first-person shooters can have clever gameplay mechanics.

As great of a pick as it is, you might have a different opinion. So, what's your choice for greatest game of the decade?
