Maybe Playerunknown's Battlegrounds Is The Game Of The Decade?!

One of the 10 million people playing Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds just so happens to be me, and so I am now qualified to assess it in a video. I promise I’m being sincere when I say I consider it “The Game Of The Decade.”


As of Fall 2017, anyway. Heck, Fall 2017 is practically 2018, and 2018 is practically 2020, so I do say it’s not too early to start talking about “The Game Of The Decade.” What do you all think?

I realize this is going to inspire the question “What were the games of all the other decades?” So I’ll answer that, with my own opinion:

The game of the 1980s was Super Mario Bros.

The game of the 1990s was Doom.

The game of the 2000s was Gears of War.

I’m sure somebody in the comments thinks they want me to defend that last one, though buddy, you probably don’t. The video would be about two hours long, and my exclamations would probably break your headphones.


Don’t forget to watch my video, by the way. If nobody watches it, I am not allowed to have dinner. [Editor’s note: Or any other meals, either.]

I make videos for Kotaku. I make video games for myself and my friends. I like writing fiction. Someday I will publish a novel. Who knows!

a copy paste game with not a single shred of originality anywhere in it and you cant even kill people in water. Not to mention the disgusting use of microtransactions in it.

You may think its really fun and you may like it a lot I will not take any of that from you, I also think its fun. But calling it “Game of the decade” is outright offensive.

Also Gears of War for the 2000s? Who is going to agree with you on that one?
Half Life 2 came out in the 2000s. Team Fortress 2 Came out in the 2000s. Resident Evil 4 came out in the 2000s. Halo came out in the 2000s. Grand theft auto 3 came out in the 2000s.

I could go on but of all the things you could have picked you’d go with Gears of War? A glorified tech demo? I enjoyed it back in the day but it didn’t define anything of the era or the future to come.
