Top Ten Video Games of the 21st Century

This is a collection of the most entertaining, amazing, and influential games of the new millennium. These games are the exact definition of a perfect video game. There is no possible way that we could make a list that will please everybody and we are not saying that this is the end all be all final list, it's simply our personal take on the matter. These games go past the point of just being a game, these "games" have changed my life in so many ways. They are all works of art and hold a special place in our hearts and are forever immortal.

21 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

My personal favorite game. Stop hating on Nintendo, people.

Best game in the 21st century!

22 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Last of Us is good but not the best. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas is the greatest game of the greatest series.

The game I love the most is sadly not here. This will have to do.

I love this game. It has obsessed me. It must be on top.

Best video game ever made! Must be number 1!

24 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Top 30? Really? This game is absolutely phenomenal. Beautifully crafted story and soundtrack. It's also polished extremely well considering how massive and deep it is (no pun intended). Best game of all time. Period.

All these puny games topping the chart are just lucky that Witcher 3 came out late.

Best game I have ever played. Rich story and polished characters. Also it's looks so beautiful.

25 Assassin's Creed II

I don't like it when people say something is the best ever, you have to have done everything to say that. However,I think AC2 is one of the best games ever, the beautiful cities and the sad yet amazing stoyline produce a truly brilliant game. The story of Ezio Auditore the Firenze is a great work of fiction and should be remembered as one of the best game characters ever made. Also, this game made me want to learn Italian, which I absolutely love. And anyone who says GTA5 is better than this is very very wrong.

Why the hell is Assassins Creed I here Assassins Creed II improved on next to everything that was bad about the orignal. Great Story, Great Protagonist, Great Gameplay.

26 Super Mario Galaxy 2
27 God of War

God of war should be number 1 its bo$$

28 Mass Effect 2

One of the most breathtaking stories I've ever had the pleasure of undergoing in a game.

29 Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

Phenomenal game and has aged extremely well. Easily my favorite Zelda and a pinnacle of gaming. - evoxpisces

30 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

I really love this game it's like my 2 favorite game ever. It has a great storyline and has so many cool places to explore. It has great graphics and so many levels to keep the fun going. I personally think it's the best AC game!

It's a tossup between AC Black Flag and AC2 on which is the best in the series for me. And I think black flag might have the edge... with beautiful worlds, interesting characters and an ending that will melt your heart. If you haven't played this game, then you really need to.

31 Borderlands 2

Totally Underrated...Should Be higher...Unique visuals,good story and badass gameplay

32 Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

Kotor was one of the first RPG games to give you the ability to make choices which affect the main character, other characters, and the overall storyline. This game tells the story of the ancient Jedi, and their struggle against the ancient Sith in a time of war and conquest. As a Star Wars fan, this game kept me up for many many nights. It is a true GOAT, a timeless RPG that everyone should play.

Not only the best Star Wars game to come out to date, but it was also the first game that your descions and the dialogue you select affect the eventual outcome of the game.

This is the second best game of all time (star wars battlefront 2 is not on the list) but I love this game so much I've had it since I was 5 and I've spent weeks playing it and I've beat it 5 times it's so fun to replay over and over because there is so many sidequests and possibilitys in the game. this game is truly the second best game ever.

33 Team Fortress 2

Very fun PC game which is free now. 9 different player types.

How is it number 33. It should be at least in the top 10 or even 5

34 Halo Reach

It Has to be on the top ten list! Great multiplayer and campaign. And don't forget the amazing forge world. A lot better then most games!

35 Animal Crossing

Very fun game to chill out.

36 Star Wars: Empire at War

A Great Strategy Game That Changed How Quite A Few Companies Did Battles

37 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

No other game is so full of things to do and paths to choose. The countless hours that can and will be sunk into this game is unparalleled. The elder scrolls in general redefine gaming with each installment but oblivion has the perfect balance of variety and story. By the time you run out of things to do you feel like a citizen of tamriel. No matter who you are or what type of games you like, oblivion will never cease to amaze and enthrall you.

I've tried playing Oblivion many times and I can never get into it. I played Skyrim first. Perhaps this is my mistake.

38 Halo 2

Halo 2 is by far, the most hyped and craved game to be released on xbox. It was released at the moment of the last 2 decades, when games were as good as a game can be, but this was no ordenary game... This was Halo: Video Games Evolved, also with awesome soundtracks, especially Breaking Benjamin's "Blow Me Away". I wish I was born 1990 instead of 2000, just so I could be there to experience the Halo games when they was released. I started with Halo 3 in 2009, and didn't really experience the Halo games fully untill Halo: The Master Chief Collection, but I REALLY wish I would have been there. Should be top 5 at least!

39 Disney Infinity 3.0
