In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

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?
