Best Years of 2010s

The Top Ten Best Years of 2010s

1 2012

2012 was the peak of the good old simple days. Everyone was happier, cheerful, and just were being their authentic selves. Music, movies, and society were pretty much thriving compared to, let's say, 2014 when things began to go downhill, but it was more subtly noticeable compared to 2016. That's when things got very ugly from then onwards and it would be impossible to experience a better year than 2012 and backwards.

What I'm trying to illustrate here is that not only music and movies were amazing in 2012, and its not a matter of nostalgia if you notice years after go downhill due to social media and the rise of terrible music later on, the fact that 2012 had so many positives just goes to show that it was probably the best final year of the golden simple days. As we continue to hope that each new year will be better than the last, and that's something I will most certainly be hoping for despite a significant decrease I have for hope for humanity due to how many things have ...more

This year was definitely among the best years of this decade. It was a good, transition period for the 2010s. There were good, older memes, YouTube was still good quality with nostalgia value and many other things. I'd say this year and 2013 were probably the best years of my life so far. After 2014 and 2015, things started to go down in quality. - EndOfSilence402

2012 was a complete masterpiece of a year! Great Music and Great Movies!? What more could you want!?

Yes 2012! What a great year for everything and is going to be in the 3rd millennium history books forever! - TheMasterof2011

2 2011

2011 was amazing for me for many reasons!
1. Osama bin Laden died (he was behind the 9/11 attacks in 2001)
2. I wasn't bullied, everyone just accepted me as a normal, innocent person.
3. I had a lot of friends and had an EXCELLENT school year with nothing to be stressed about.
4. Music was AMAZING (or at least better than the music in the late 2010s)
5. All of my friends at school invited me to their special events parties etc, nowadays in 2018/19, they just don't really care about me anymore.
6. Life was much simpler!

I love 2011 so much and will forever, wish I could go back and revisit it again! - TheMasterof2011

2009 horrible

Ah, the Golden year of Minecraft, the first exploration-class vehicles capable of sending astronauts to Mars, and Death of Osama bin Laden

Lots of good music, movies and video games. This was the best year of the 2010s.

The good things from 2017 came over to 2018. I had a good time.
My opinion on all the years:
2010 - Awesome (until November).
2011 - My life went to hell. TERRIBLE!
2012 - I almost ended myself... TERRIBLE!
2013 - I became someone I wasn't. BAD!
2014 - It got a little better. Good overall.
2015 - BAD!
2016 - 50% good, 50% bad.
2017 - GREAT!
2018 - Good.
2019 - BAD! - TheDelBel

This year was awesome! I started a YouTube channel, I got to New York through cruise, and I visited my uncles

Think of one good thing from that year besides Infinity War, can't think of anything? - myusernameisthis

This year was just a full blessing to me. The holidays, vacation, the hottest summer, last year of school, met a new girl at the beginning of summer and she is just an angle sended by god himself, so many good music dropped and I was on a festival for the first time. The 4 years before are nothing compared to this great year.

4 2017 2017 (MMXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2017th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 17th year of the 3rd millennium, the 17th year of the 21st century, and the 8th year of the 2010s decade.

One of the first good years that happened in a while. I literally had no issues this year. The Nintendo Switch came out. I got to go to Japan. These were good times!

I loved this year. I had more than 1 friend (unlike now), I was actually happy (unlike now), and everything was exciting. Here is my ranking of the years of this decade.

2019 : By far the worst year of the decade, all my friends are gone, depression has kicked in, and nothing special has happened. 2/10
2010/2011 : Considering the fact I was born in 2007, I can barely remember either of these years.
2018 : Pretty decent year, and everything was good until October. 6/10
2013 : Nothing special happened besides my cousins moving in with us. 7/10
2015 : Good year all around. 7.5/10
2014 : I made too many memories this year, but that is a good thing. 8/10
2016 : Phenomonal year. The war against my worst enemy, I made lots of friends, and Youtube was actually good. 8.5/10
2012 : Though I was only 5, I had so much fun in 2012, that I would sacrifice my belly button to go back. 9/10
2017 : Easily the best year of my life. I got to see my friends constantly, I ...more - ChemicalGlue

Epic! The Nintendo Switch got released, most of the movies were either excellent or decent (The Emoji movie can go to hell), and even though Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, the hurricane brought so many changes to my life!

I started doing good comics, I started to come back to DS gaming, I played with my friends for lots of times.

This is a year to remember.

Born in 1992

To me, 2017 was the best year of the decade!

2010: It was OK. I turned 18 in that year. I spent lots of time alone and listened to lost of good music.

2011: I graduated from high school, I started to be more open to people and made new friends. Finally, my parents got divorced, which was good for everyone. 7/10

2012: It was an amazing year! I met lots of new people, and I was hanging with lots of international people. It was the year, when I moved to the UK as well. 9/10

2013: It was quite a difficult year. My granddad passed away. I was depressed and I spent most of the time alone, while being abroad. I had to manage my life and grow up and someone broke my heart... 3/10

2014: pretty average year. Working and hanging out with my lovely British friends in the UK. 7/10

2015: was a very good year. I moved back home, and started uni. I met new people and rebuilt my friendships. I joined a completely new group of friends. ...more

5 2010

It was really good. I felt like this was going to be the last good year of my life, honestly... I was in 7th grade, and it was great. The summer was so much fun. 8th grade happened, and then... November sucked. Overall, it's awesome.

It's 2018 right now and I hope in just 2 years, There will either be a 1970s. 1980s, 1990s or early 2000s comeback, if not, then possibly be worse then the 2010s, because from what I heard lately, there's nothing good on the radio anymore in 2018. I was born in 1999, I do love the early 2000s, and I don't mind the mid to late 2000s (although a lot of people hated 2005 - 2009, especially 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009), It wasn't that bad for me, except 2009. If I ever was a singer one day when I grow up, I would revive an old band from the olden times - Pink Floyd. I will NEVER EVER use Autotune in my music, because Autotune is overrated now, and I would just revive the band just to bring back the late 90s/early 00s nostalgia.

My Timeline/Opinion:

Born on December 30, 1999
1999 - 2002: Awesome years! Best movies, best games, best T.V. shows, best music of the late 90s and early 00s.
2003 - 2007: Great years, but not as good as the earlier ones, but still had an awesome childhood back then
2008 - 2012: These years were okay, Things were starting to change a lot.
2013 - 2014: Bad, things were starting to suck.
2015 - 2016: Awful, things were getting worse
2017 - Present: $#! TTY music, movies, T.V. shows, etc.

My opinion on the 2010s so far:

2010 (9/10): best year ever, hands down. great music, good movies, and my life was going great.

2011 (8.5/10): this was also a great year, for the same reasons as the previous year. this year would be the runner-up as best year of the 2010s so far.

2012 (3/10): this was actually a pretty bad year. bad stuff happening in my life, and bad stuff happening in the world (Sandy Hook, Hurricane Sandy, etc.). the only thing I miss about 2012 is the music and the summer.

2013 (5/10): I didn't really care for this year either. it wasn't a bad year by any means, it just wasn't as great as 2010 and 2011. plus, the music that came out this year wasn't as good.

2014 (6/10): this was a good year and a bad year: good year music-wise (a nice improvement from 2013, if you ask me), and semi-bad year when it came to my personal life (though nowhere near as bad as the next two years would be).

2015 (5/10): good and bad, but mostly ...more - MountainDewKid101

6 2019

This year is so amazing! And that "2020 80s 90s comeback" Person pisses me off!

October 25, 2019: American Dream Meadowlands shopping mall opens up near New York City. Congratulations. More shoppers will be shopping for more stuff with money coming out of their pockets. Mo' money, mo' problemz.

The first half of the year already is pretty good, started a new lifestyle, pretty much the same as 2018 except feeling stronger, breathing the military - LostGuyfrom2018

Lovin' it; a very, VERY refined version of 2018 (which itself was good)

7 2013

The best thing about 2013 for me was the excellent school year! Grade 3 was fun because my class were allowed to have dance parties every Friday! - TheMasterof2011

I was born on December 30, 1999, So... My favorite years were (2007-2012) except for 2009. So I'd say 2013 was when I noticed things were starting to suck. 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 were crap and this year has nothing super exciting going on, 2020 might be great though!

I love 2013. It's my favorite year ever, it's now surpassed 2012 with its greatness.
It repeats the calendar of my favorite 2000s year and birth year, 2002. So there's an extra bonus for me.

This year needs to be higher on the list. - VersaWizKid

This actually wasn't that bad of a year for me personally. I was only 10 at the time so that might explain it, but I feel like this was the last good year of the 2010's.

8 2015

This is the last good year I'll ever have. I had lived in a mobile home lake house thing and it was so trashy. I had lived in it for 8 years! We had talked about moving ALL the time and in May of 2015, we moved to a better country city with a beautiful surburen home! I have only seen my Papa once in my life so we went to California to meet him! On the way, I got to see Steven Spielberg! We didn't meet but I think I saw him in his car..I went to the best school district in town and met my BEST FRIEND! (We have been friends for 3 years now! ) I loved the music and it's hard to explain how much I want to go back and start this year over again. But, 2016 my step grandfather died. I was closer to him than my real grandfather in Cali. I was in the crown plaza hotel when the Dallas shooting happened. I saw a cop die I front of my eyes! Then, in December, my mom commit suicide. I'm only 9 years old and all the years from 2010 to 2017, 2010 to 2015 were the only good years. Now I am always mad ...more

Haha!
May 2015...This is actually when I felt not good anymore in my entire life!
Lol - Idiot244

2015 was in many ways the less worse year for a lot of things, plus music was great, world was in relative peace and was the best year of my life.

Because I was in 5th grade and I had so many great friends. Sure it could be better but the school I was in was the best! Except for like some of the people where they came from 'cause it was in Washington so you know. And movies last year were really memorable. Like Big hero 6 and frozen I think even though I don't like it. I also learned in this year how to solve a Rubik's cube. So it was my personal best.

2015 was so lit. Like it was an amazing year for filmmakers (five films passed the 1 Billion mark, 3 of them earning more than 1.5 Billion in the box office). We also finally saw Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (my new favourite Star Wars now).

It was before the turmoil of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election (Trump was a meme in 2015, no one cared about Hillary).

This was the pinnacle of vine. When we didn't worship our trends (although we might have overused them).

For me, this was an amazing year. Me and my friends did the most amazing things during this year. It was before the huge let-down of 2016.

I guess this would be the happiest year of my life.

9 2014

My life started coming back together this year. It still felt like a sad year, but it was outweighed by the good things.
My opinion on all the years:
2010 - Awesome (until November).
2011 - My life went to hell. TERRIBLE!
2012 - I almost ended myself... TERRIBLE!
2013 - I became someone I wasn't. BAD!
2014 - It got a little better. Good overall.
2015 - BAD!
2016 - 50% good, 50% bad.
2017 - GREAT!
2018 - Good.
2019 - BAD! - TheDelBel

2014 was very bad, though 2017 sucked more! Strangely enough, 2017 reminds me a lot of 2014, because they were both terrible. A lot of man made and natural disasters happened in 2014 as well, A lot of celebrities died in 2014 also, I had been in the hospital a lot in 2014 as well.

2014 was hell for sure :'(

I hated this decade with a FLAMING passion! I hope the 2020s will be much better and be like the 1980s/1990s

This year is awesome, I got a Nintendo, Mario Kart 7, and went on an awesome trip! 2014 was the year when the world started to get a little better, it was also when A Hard Days Night from The Beatles was released on bluray.

10 2016 2016 (MMXVI) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2016th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 16th year of the 3rd millennium, the 16th year of the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2010s decade.

50% bad at first. Had friends betray me since 2015, and they still attacked me this year. The other 50% was fun though.

2019 - BAD! - TheDelBel

I know everyone says that this year totally sucked, with many celebrities dying, Donald Trump getting Elected and so much more, but for me, this was probably the greatest year of my life. a lot of great things happened to me in 2016: I made a lot of friends, shared great memories, and was always happy. Life couldn't be any better. 2017 was mostly a sad year for me since my grandma died and my friends ditched me for new kids, but I went on a summer trip to Europe, which totally rocked! So for me, 2016 was better than 2017

Here’s my timeline/opinion:
1999: Born
2000 - 2003: Awesome years! Best games, best movies, best music and best T.V. shows of the early to mid 00s
2004 - 2007: Great years, but not as good as the earlier years, but still had a great childhood!
2008 - 2012: These years were okay. Things were starting to change a lot
2013 - 2014: Bad! Things were starting to suck!
2015 - 2016: Awful! Things were getting worse!
2017 - Present: $#! tty music, movies, T.V. shows, etc

This was bad so many bad memories, mentally abusive boyfriend, trump, fake friends, negativity and 2017 and 2018 followed. So many people started to think about feminism, human rights, propaganda, anger against each other.
