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.

61 NHL 07

One of the best sports game I have ever played. I don't think 13 even matches 07. Has Crosby and Ovechkins rooky year.

62 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

This game is absolutely brilliant! And I'm the kind of person who prefers to play games like Limbo, so this it's quite interesting that I like this.

Surprised this wasn't ranked higher, I thought the campaign and multiplayer were excellent. Certainly better than the futuristic Call of Duty's of today.

63 Mass Effect

Mass Effect revolutionized they way we look sequiels. No other game takes every single choice you made and translates it directly to the sequel so that by the third game the universe your playing is totally different from what anyone else is experiencing

This is the ultimate Sci-Fi game! And an amazing RPG, made by none other than Bioware, the kings of RPG. It is a classic story of humans vs Aliens, in a futuristic galaxy. As Commander Shepard, you walk a fine line between the comforts of what we know, and unknown, as you seek out an ancient threat, which threatens to destroy everything in the galaxy.

64 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Why isn't this in here? This was THE game of my childhood! I'm 15 years old, and it's still my favorite of all time. A heck of a lot better than last of us, which was still amazing though.

Best game of the 20th century and still rivals the games of the 21st century

67 Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
68 League of Legends
69 Half-Life 2

The greatest single-player game of all time. Blows competitors out of the water with atmosphere, story, immersion, and level design. Written to perfection. It has aged beautifully, and despite only being 9 years old, its influence on the industry is staggering.

Absolutely perfect. The atmosphere this game creates is something you will remember for decades. There's nothing about this game I don't love.

Haven't finished, but still an instant classic.

This game is so underrated

72 Mortal Kombat X

This is the best fighting game series of the century

73 Rayman Origins
74 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
75 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Everything about this game is perfect. The story, the visuals, the controls, the characters, the emotion, the resolution, the conflicts. I could go on and on about this game, being an avid mgs fan-boy, but I think I've gotten me point across. - Strokavich

76 Gran Turismo 3 A-spec

Best racing game of all time earns its spot at number 2.

77 Pokemon Black

My favorite Pokemon region ever...first game I ever owned

78 Mortal Kombat (2011)

One of the best fighting games! Great gameplay, great graphics, awesome fighters and even interesting story

79 Shadow of the Colossus

throws up about this not even being on the list

80 Dead Space

You are right it haunts you. I heard of many people stop playing the game after a few minutes. Just for tough people. After playing this at night the visit of a mental hospital can be little bit closer. The atmosphere is incredibly dazing. The creatures are moving like... No, I'm ending this here. You play it at your own risk.

Dead space redefined terror in video games, no game before or since has left me so shaken... It will haunt me till I die.

Dead space is a great horror game they really made the atmosphere realistically scary
