Best Grand Theft Auto of the decade. - codgtamk34

It's obvious a 8 or 9 year old must have made this list, otherwise San Andreas would be higher. - JamesNicholls

How is this only number 46? It deserves at least in top 10

3 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

This game was better than part 1 on every aspect. It even had an awesome multiplayer!

Guys, this game, Mortal Kombat Armageddon and Grand Theft Auto IV should be at least in the top 5.
Uncharted 2 is awesome game. Maybe even Perfect! - Magnolia

I hate this game and its worthless piece of garbage and I NEVER own it myself and to this day it's still trash to me >=(

5 Kingdom Hearts II

Truly groundbreaking. Pushed the boundries of today's shooters. It felt like you were in the middle of a movie. Grabs you by the throat and won't let you go.

Ubisoft tried something new, and it blew everyone away.

37 Mortal Kombat Armageddon

Game-masterpiece. Seriously, the greatest MK game in the 2000's. Its graphics was awesome, its combos were superb plus more than 60 fighters. And Taven's konquest mode was very cool - Magnolia

38 Medal of Honor: Airborne
39 Mario Kart Double Dash
40 Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2

Amazing game with great graphics and storyline.
