This is a 24 bracket tournament where Comic Vine will pick the best video game of the decade!

Before we get started let me explain how this works.

I will enter the games in a random generator and it will pick two games that will be put against each other, then you guys will vote on which game you prefer. The winner of that matchup moves on to the next round.

We’ll start in round one with 24 video games, then they will be narrowed down to 12, then 6, then the finale with 3.

I would also like to clarify that I have gathered this list of 24 games by assessing several articles and videos for guidance, (as I have obviously not played every game on this list). If one of your favorite games did not make the cut, please forgive me, but also understand that this is a list compiled of what games are widely considered the best or are very popular and have sold many copies.

Only one game per franchise is allowed.

Also, ask for a tag if you want to be tagged on the next post!

Now let’s get started!

MATCHUP NUMBER 1

- GOD OF WAR

VS

- MINECRAFT

VOTE!

Minecraft.

God of war is one of the greatest of all time but there are tons of people who have never heard of of it. Minecraft is on Mario level at this point. Everyone has heard of it or played it.

Tag me, please.

Last of Us.

Will you be differentiating between single game titles and game franchises or is this focused primarily on franchises?

Same as minecraft - The Last of Us is a classic, but Fortnite is literally a pop culture phenom. Ive never seen anyone talk about the Last of Us outside a video game context but Fortnite? That game as toys, lunchboxes, cartoons, clothing, school gear...

Fortnite crushes and I hate that game.

@rdskns4eva: Fortnite is dying off. It was one of the top games for a few years but unlike it's competition LoL and PubG they stay consistent with millions of players while Fortnite is slowly losing players.

I bought RDR2 for $60 and never played more than an hour or two of it. The game bores me, and I was really excited for it. Sorry guys :(

Arkham City was mind blowing many years ago but it is completely obsolete after Arkham Knight.

Pass.

I am voting Arkham City partly because I enjoyed the game (not as much as Asylum, though), but also because I haven’t played Red Dead 2. Originally that was because I was waiting for the PC version. Then I decided to wait a little longer because the PC had some bugs that needed patching. Now, I just haven’t had the time, but it’s still on my to-do list. If it’s any consolation, I did play RDRedeption 1, and was not a fan. Story was fine, but hated the game play and control.

@ready_4_madness: I believe you. Shame because I used to play the first one a ton and I always wanted a sequel, but I never thought we’d get it. I will try again to get into the game so I can experience it.

RDR2 for me is not a perfect game simply because of how unpleasant it was to get the platinum trophy, that said my vote goes to RDR2

Oof tough one, but I'll go with Arkham City because it's the greatest superhero game of all time.

Arkham City.

Also, just out of curiosity, do you have Hollow Knight on this list? It's one of the most popular indie games of the decade ( if not THE most popular ) having sold over 3 million copies and I would say it's one of the few pieces of media I'd give a 10/10. It's extremely polished in all aspects and, imo, is the best metroidvania of all time.

@killbilly: As good as that game is, no, it did not make the list. It’s a FANTASTIC game, but sadly it’s just not as popular as most of these.

But yeah, it is either the best or second best indie game (only one I’ve heard that might be considered barely better is Celeste).

Hollow Knight is as close to perfection as one can expect, I cant say 100% sure that its the best Indie game of the decade, because I may be forgotting some, and also because IMO there are others that can also be in the conversation, Undertale, Celeste, and Banner Saga to name a few.

But it's definitely a game that deserves being in a tourney such as this.

@killbilly: @rukelnikovftw: Ok, two different people requesting that it is added, means I gotta add it!

Hollow Knight will replace one of the games already on the list and will be added to the tourney!

@eslay03: I think SSB Melee (2001) has the greater following. MC score of 92. I am not sure if that would change the outcome, though, but from what I understand the Snash Bros. community is most passionate about Melee.

@Penguin-Dust: Very True. But this is best games of the decade, so that ruled out melee.

I'll be satisfied if either Portal 2 or Hollow Knight win this thing tbh.
