Low Score spent the past two episodes running down our list of what we believe are the games that defined the decade. These choices were based on a number of factors. Popularity, influence, success, and quality contributed with different weight in our decisions.
Is there something we missed? Include it in the comments with an explantation of not only why you think it belongs on the list, but also which game you would get rid of to make room for it.
Think we're totally off base with a choice? Make sure to listen to the podcast to hear our explanation, then argue it in the comments. Remember, just because you love it or it's a great game doesn't mean it belongs on the list. We had to leave off numerous personal favorites like Shadow of the Colossus, Final Fantasy XII, Burnout 3, Fallout 3, and GTA: Vice City. So it goes when you make a list.
