Best Years of 2010s

The Top Ten
1 2012

The year I played on my Wii. I know, I know, it came out in 2006, I know, but that was the year I was born, so I obviously can't remember it. I got my Wii for Christmas 2011, but it wasn't until 2012 that I properly started digging it out. I turned six that July 4th (except I'm British, so it doesn't get overshadowed), and celebrated the London Olympics that summer. My Year 1 (start of year) and Year 2 (end of year) friend group made me happy. Plus, stuff like Moshi Monsters was popular back then. My childhood peak was in 2012.

It was the best year of my middle school years and we had so much fun and I wish go back for the memories of my middle school year.

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.

2 2011

I was more happy here then I had ever been before.I used to be sad but then I was happy for a lot of reasons
1 I had my girlfriend (Who is now my fiancee since 2018 been together since 2010)
2 My Fiancee and I had a friend who was one of the best we ever had. We want to talk to her and reconnect with her.
3 Best summer of my life summer 2008 I was a little troubled, 2009 even worse, 2010 summer the wort summer 2011 best summer ever
4 Best birthday of my life when I was 19
5 My life was getting better I was more skinny then I am now I lost 42 pounds.
6 I was happy I felt so alive and more happy then I had been in years.

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!

Life was really simple and fun. The music, movies, games and basically everything was better back in 2011. I had good friends and new experiences in this year. I turned 10 in the summer of 2011 (born 2001).

Best year of my life I was way more happy then I got to go on more romantic dates with my girlfriend and we had a friend who was really important to us and we miss her more then ever before.

3 2015

The world was a different place, lowest deaths by HIV and hunger ever, following years increased those numbers, good music, good vibes, people were not hating each other on social media, politics were not everywhere every time, no TikTok no Facebook reactions, just Snapchat and Vines, good films, no pandemics or epicamics (no flu, Ebola or other kind of stuff), the only bad thing tho was ISIS attacks on France.

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

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.

2010: Mostly crappy year. 2/5
2011: Crappy year. 1/5
2012: Mostly crappy year. 1,5/5
2013: Mostly crappy year. 1/5
2014: The first and the second third: Mostly crappy. The third third: It was better. 2,5/5
2015: Awesome! 4,5/5
2016: Very good. 4/5

4 2018 2018 (MMXVIII) is a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2018th year of the Common Era (CE), the 9th year of the 2010s decade, the 18th year of the 21st century, and the 18th year of the 3rd millennium.

This year was the peak of late 2010's culture and I have such great memories of it. Movies like Black Panther and Infinity War and all of the great new memes that came out that year will always hold a special place in my heart.

I lived a great life.

Bad things:
School shootings
Stephen Hillenburg died
Avicii died
Bad rap music

Good things:
Smash Ultimate
My trip to Jamaica
Memes were great
Super Mario Party
Got a Nintendo Switch
I went to the soccer game USA vs Peru

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.

I turned 13 in 2018. We would just hang out all summer during the heatwave. I made so many great friends in 2018 as well. Compared to 15-16-17, 18 was by far the best, at least on a personal level. It was a great year for me up until late on in the year when I started the courses for my GCSE exams, way more stress, and 2019 is already turning out to be terrible.

5 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.

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

My opinions on the 2010's so far:
2010: Awesome 7/10
2011: Amazing 8/10
2012: Fantastic 9/10
2013: Sucked but not as much as 2014. I was only 8 at the time. 4/10
2014: Awful, too many bad things were happening like my grandmother died, terrible trends, Adventure was no longer good, etc, etc. The only thing that I miss about 2014 is the summer and christmas vacation. 2/10
2015: Good, things were bad and good but definitely better than 13' and 14' but kinda bad. 6/10
2016: Way tooo cringey and crappy year 3/10
2017: Best year of my life. My personal life was getting better, I got a Nintendo Switch, I got more mature, and many plans. 10/10
2018: Good, sadly not better than 2017 but I still enjoy that year 6/10
2019:Average, not really much I can say about this year but still enjoy it 5/10

A lot of terrible things happened in 2017 for me personally. I started to get ocular migraines (look it up) and I stressed about it so much I gave myself hypochondria (which is nearly gone now but somewhat effects me to this day) and I now have a blind spot in both my periferals. I also got a spurt of depression that lasted about a month in a half, and sometimes this day. But we did go to championships in marching band which was like the best thing ever, and I did get Disneyland season passes. It was a mixed year

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

6 2019

My timeline:

2010: Don’t really remember much because I was 3 but it was good, 7/10

2011: Ok I guess, 5.5/10

2012: Not very good, 3/10

2013: Kinda bad at the beginning but in may it got much better, 7.5/10

2014: AMAZING, wish I could go back, 9/10

2015: Pretty good but not the best, 7/10

2016: A bit better than 2015, did a lot of things that year, 7.5/10

2017: Not that good, pretty stressful year, 4/10

2018: Stressful at the beginning but then got much better, 7.5/10

2019: Very good year except I was depressed in summer, 8/10

2020: So far alright, very good but got downhill in March, 6.5/10

This year was awesome! The most anticipated game for Nintendo Switch got released, I was at my best for videos, and other things!

However, I found two abysmal cons:

The memes were at its worst

September 20th of this year SUCKED! I was looking for random stuff until I saw something that won over my curiosity. I opened the website, and I saw what scarred me for life (And also almost ruined my childhood). Since I don’t want you to experience the same problem, I won’t say what it is.

But at the most, this year ended the decade greatly!

2019 - Insanely the worst year of my personal lifetime!


1. My bus driver being late on January 2nd (on September 23rd also, I got home late for snack)

2. Uber accident on March 27

3. So many celebrities dying (I know my mom tells me that I don't know these celebrities, but still.. it's still sad to see them go :'(... )

4. Dora and the Lost City of Gold

5. Fatal train accident that happened in Denmark on January 2nd

6. So many mass shootings (Just like 2017)

7. My bus driver from June 5 did not have the right directions to my house

8. My bus driver from September 3 took me to school late which forced me to run behind in my routine schedule at school

9. I was non compliant during Reading Mastery (Mostly because I had a cold and I took a day off on September 13)

10. My stomach hurted over the weekend so I had diahreea on Saturday

Though 2018 and 2019 felt a little bit the same as 2017 regarding ...more

Here's my timeline/opinion:

1999: Born
2000 - 2003: Awesome years! Best games, best music, best movies and best T.V. shows from the early 00s
2004 - 2007: Great years! But not as good as the earlier years, but still have 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.

7 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.
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!

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

I hope the 2020s bring back the 1980s, 1990s or 2000s, but I don’t think so, Everything rapidly started to suck in mid-2013, The final good year was 2012, early-2013 was okay but everything went downhill in mid-2013 because I got braces then and a screwed up school year. 2012 was the last good year for my life, movies, T.V. shows, music, video games, movie studios and everything, although I kinda hated that year for a couple of reasons like my cat scratches my mother, Hurricane Sandy, Sandy Hook, Movie Theater Shooting And my great grandfather died, other than that I would say the year was average since it’s my final good year, so I would say the final good year was 2012, though I was born in 1999, the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and the 2000s were A! (Although a lot of people hated the mid to late 2000s), it wasn’t really that bad for me, 2009 was terrible though.

This Is My Opinion about those 12 Years:

2006: Awesome
2007: Best Time Ever For me!
2008: Mediocre!
2009: Sucked.
2010: Ok!
2011: Good
2012: Average
2013: Horrible!
2014: Really horrible!
2015: Things got 10 times worse!
2016: Things got 20 times worse!
2018: I don't know so far

8 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.

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

On New Year's Day 2016, when I was 10, we went to a relative's beach picnic in NZ. I hurt my knee, and also I couldn't wait for this crappy year to end when Pokemon Sun and Moon came out. Me back then: ISLAND CHALLENGES? No thank you! Me now: Yes, yes... I can't stop playing... WAHOO!

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

The start out was bad, Alan Rickman, David Bowie dying, but then a few months later it started getting better. The icing was Rogue One.

9 2014

My 2010s experience
2011: Terrible
2013: Not bad
2014 extremely Good I wish I could go back to those days
2015:Bad but it was better then 2011
2016: Worst

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!

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 :'(

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 2013

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.

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.

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!
