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.

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.

Thanks 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?

Please change "Poll Suggestion" to "Live Poll" in the discussion thread title and change the settings so that it appears under "Praise" now, rather than "Idea."
