Thumbs up **WiiTalk's Game of the Decade**

Right, had this idea over lunch and I think it could work well!

Basically, as this decade comes to an end, I thought it would be interesting for us to have a series of nominations, and then polls, to see what everyone thinks the best game of the decade has been for each of the main companies and then an overall, undisputed, game of the decade!

So, we can start the nomination phase now and try to get as many people's opinions as possible. It would be good if you could provide a bit of justification to your choices so we can all get an idea of where you are coming from and hopefully spark a bit of discussion.

Note that this is game of the decade, so it must've been released on the respective console between the 1st January 2000 and now(So we're really looking at Gamecube, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3). Please post the release date of your chosen game(s) when nominating them.

The nomination format will work as follows:
  • Everyone may nominate up to 3 games for each respective company's main consoles(Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony)
  • There may be another category for PC games and Handheld consoles if people think it'll be a good idea!
  • Along with your company-specific games, you can also nominate 1 game which you believe to be the 'best of the decade'.
  • When all the nominations are in(Deadline will be announced later), Polls will be created for the most nominated games in each category(I.E One poll for Ninty, One for MS, One for Sony and one for GotD)
  • There will then be a voting period and after that we will have 4 games to be crowned as best [instert company here] game of the deacade and then Game of the Decade
  • Only nominate and vote for games that you have played and can justify voting for
I think that covers everything...

Any questions ask away and you can change your nominations if you so wish at a later date. Please make it clear which games you are nominating though and in what category. Feel free to discuss possible contenders however.

The ultimate game of the decade for me has to be Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, due to the fact that it gave a fresh boost to the whole genre of FPSs.

Release date: November 9, 2007.

Nintendo:

Resident Evil 4 - A great game for the Wii. Completed it on Easy, Normal and almost finished it on professional. Good graphics, great game play and controls worked really well.

MOHH2 - Purely for the online. Hours of fun.

Sony.

Fallout 3. Possibly my most favourite game of all time. I'm on my third run through and still have 3 DLC's to experience. The graphics are excellent, the story is exceptional and everything about it just feels so right. I've always been a fan of post apocalyptic themes (I have dreams about nuclear bombs dropping ) and this game fulfils all expectations.

Little Big Planet. I played the single player and loved it. Spending hours creating levels didn't get boring. You are only limited by your imagination..... I just wish Media Molecule released more official levels for it.

I'm leaving the other two for a while so I can think about it a bit........

Should've waited Tam

The nominations are company specific, not console specific, so it takes into account both consoles. So people nominating 3 microsoft games can choose 3 from the enitre Xbox and Xbox 360 catalogues combined, but not 3 from each.

Hope I've made that clearer now!

I'm not going to post my nominations just yet, but My first instincts for Nintendo were definitely Mario Galaxy and Twilight Princess and then another from a selection of a few games...

I think my Xbox ones at the moment would be GTA IV, Star Wars: Knights of the old Republic and CoD4.

With MW2 coming out next month though, I guess there's every reason why that could leapfrog it's predecessor... but for a title like 'Game of the Decade' I think a game needs to prove itself in the long run and it'll probably come just a bit too late...

Ninty:

1. LoZ: Twilight Princess: Nov 19th 2006: One of the best Zelda games ever, great depth to the story, excellent storyline, visually nice, maintains the core of a zelda game.
2. Super Mario Galaxy: 16 Nov 2007: One of the most breathtaking games i've played, exploring hundreds of planets collecting loads of stars, good level of difficulty as well. Awesome game!
3. Mario Kart Wii: April 11th 2008: Multiplayer mayhem.

Microsoft:

1. Call of Duty 4: November 9th 2007: The campaign was epic, the multiplayer is mega addictive. Refreshed the FPS genre imo.
2. Halo 3: September 26th 2007: Excellent campaign, online is great too
3. GTA4: December 3rd 2008: Very in depth single player and the free mode online is crazy fun. So much detail in the game it's uncanny.

The nominations don't have to be exclusive, no.

There's always the chance that one game could win the Sony, MS and overall GotD!

It will actually be quite interesting to see how many exclusive titles make it to the voting stages. I think it will be a high(If not all) amount from Ninty, but on the other 2, I think the games will be mostly Multi-platform...

Give or take a few of course
