Living the past decade there’s no wonder that our eyes have seen incredible things. We have experienced the biggest evolution technology ever did, the rising of the computing industry. I still remember the first video game I have ever played on SEGA during the late 90’s.
Well things have dramatically changed since then, however some games will just always be in our hearts. During that period we all have played some games which are impossible to forget. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas would be a great example of this. No matter how many years have passed it’s still one of the greatest games ever designed.
People might say that if those games got compared to today’s ones they would just be awful. But that’s not the point. In the past decade or in the 2000’s approximately 10,000 video games were released and in this post I will be presenting only five of them which managed to stand out. Those games will be the all-time favorites.
