For video games originally released in the years 2010 through 2019, I've only either completed or spent a significant amount of time playing the following:
The asterisk is to indicate that I've barely started the story/campaign mode and really only played multiplayer mode. For video games originally released in the years 2000 through 2009, I've only either completed or spent a significant amount of time playing the following:
In other words, there are certain popular, top-rated, high-grossing, big-budget materials that I've never experienced, entire franchises with which I'm not familiar.
Just to note, at the time that I wrote the above message, the thread was a dual poll suggestion concerning the the 2010 decade and the 2000 decade. I like the idea of separating the titles by decade. I would've mentioned most (or all) of the video games that I completed (or almost completed) from the 1990 decade, if the thread had that as a focus. Maybe I should do this anyway.
That PS was pending for months so I had do something in order to make the Champions publish it.
[ Update ]Combined all the lists into one with some changes.
I find this a bit problematic with two of the entries being movie tie-ins. The fact Batman Begins and the Fifth Element lead their year in votes probably has more to do with people rating incorrectly.
I don't think it is too much of a leap to say Resident Evil 4 for 2005 and Metal Gear Solid for 1998 were more popular.
@ndbportmanfan_1Thanks for the input.I've replaced Batman Begins with Resident Evil 4 and Fifth Element with Metal gear Solid.
What does most popular mean here?
@Peter_pbn Video games with the most number of ratings (votes).Let me mention that specifically in the poll description.But I've made a few exceptions and modifications. For example, games that share the exact same title as popular movies like Fifth Element and Batman Begins are not included (as suggested by @ndbportmanfan_1 above).
As you may know, IMDb uses "Most Popular" about their Moviemeter-based lists, so it may be a bit confusing to use it about votes.
Actually, Resident Evil 4 and Metal Gear Solid are the most popular of their years according to that ranking.
Do you want me to change the title?
I think so.
Or perhaps use "Most Popular" for a new list based on popularity ranking.
I've changed the title.
Replaced "Most Popular" with "Most Rated"
Also, I never create lists based on IMDb's moviemeter rankings (the "Most Popular" you referred to above), because their results are temporary.
I've used it in a couple of more lists (poll-suggesstions), I guess I need to edit them too, don't I?
