best decade for gaming?

lately, I've been thinking about what was the best decade for gaming and what decade had the most influential games come out, so I decided to post a thread about it.

what would you say was the best decade for gaming and what games made it the best decade?

1990s I'd say, there were quite a lot of games that came out that did things for the first time ever.

Id agree with the 90's. Most innovative and fun decade for gaming.

2000 was heading that same direction, but todays games are nothing special. Its all about who has the better graphics, not the most fun game.

If your looking for purely icons thats all 80's though, Pac-man Mario....

yeah, I can't have fun with most games from now as I can with older games.

I can have fun with games like Diablo 2 then I do with something like Dragon Age Origins.

speaking of graphics,I actually got in an argument with a friend who thought that God of War 3 deserved GOTY just based on graphics alone and not based on gameplay being much better than other games

Unlike last year, im not interested in GOTY at all.

Some reason people are overlooking Medal of Honor, probably because they all got paid by Activision, and it won't be considered. Battlefield is in that same boat and its lame. Im sure COD will be put on lists, even though I know for a fact it wont be deserving....

GoW3 was cool and all, but like i said its just another game that looks pretty and nothing really more. The story even took a dip compared to the other two titles.

how was the gameplay for God of War 3?
I know it looks pretty but I hate the 1st 2 so I'm not interested in it.what are it's chances of seeing GOTY?

the only game I care about seeing win GOTY is Starcraft 2, but that could go either way I wouldn't mind seeing Reach win GOTY, since that's really the only Halo game I like.

but you're right, GOTY isn't all that interesting.

the only games I've enjoyed so far are starcraft 2 and Dante's Inferno

Gameplay wasn't anything special. It had more guys on the screen and more animations to make it more brutal, but the only innovations were certain cinamtic features like flying around and what not. It was a cool good game, just dont think it will win GOTY. Much like Battlefield it came out too early to be considered still.

Halo will probably win just because its Bungies last Halo title.

I'm kinda expecting Halo Reach to win, I'd rather see Starcraft 2 win but Halo Reach is more recent and made more of an impact so it'll probably win.

I think there's only one person who thinks that God of War 3 will win game of the year that I know of

Best decade? Hard to say for me...

I had an Atari 2600 in the 80's and played games like Pong and Combat. And yes ET...Then when the Atari 5200 came out I had to have it. So on my birthday my mom and I went to a Zayer's (wal-mart for the south in the mid 80's) and got a 5200. When I was there I noticed the NES and it came with Super Mario Bros'... Me and my friends would play the arcade at the Bowling Ally after school...Took the 5200 home with Joust and played it for a day... And I guess my mom noticed me looking at the NES. Cause the next day when I got home from school she had took back the 5200 and got me a NES...The rest was (well is) history...

90's were good too..but no stories like that...

unfortunately, i was born after that age of gaming but my best memories of gaming have to be around first getting the N64 and playing that for hours a day
