I'd second “Dying Light”. Although the story is ridiculously bad, most of the gameplay is very good (except the ending and the expansion).

 

The other games that I've enjoyed the most are “Cook, Serve, Delicious!” and “Stardew Valley”.

The Witcher 3

The Witcher 2

Deus Ex Human Revolution

Deus Ex Mankind Divided

Serious Sam 3 BFE

Batman Arkham City

Batman Arkham Knight

Mass Effect 2

Mass Effect 3

Fallout New Vegas

Perfect Dark Remastered (while it technically was a 2000 game it was updated pretty well for a 2010 release)

 

I find it hard to do these kinds of lists but these are the games which stood out to me throughout the decade.

When history looks back at the 2010s, the single most important video game of that decade will be Minecraft. I'm sure that's not the "best" game but it's certainly the most influential one. (2000s was GTA3 and 1990s was Doom, fwiw)

I absolutely agree about Minecraft. Not sure about the 2000s though what with World of Warcraft

But was WoW more influential than, say, Everquest, or just more commercially successful? Pure MMORPGs mostly burned themselves out (largely because WoW steamrolled all challengers) and ultimately were not THAT lastingly influential, especially today when we see where trends have gone, and now the money is in action games that implement MMO elements as part of their service model. See, e.g., GTAV, which has sold an absurd 100 million copies on the strength of its GTA Online mode which implements a MMO-esque world replete with the microtransactions that are the real bread and butter of the industry today.

I don't know enough about the commercial impact. I admit that I'm mostly thinking of the vast array of WoW clones and other MMOs that sprang up in an attempt to chase WoW's success - the subscription-based model obviously giving way to F2P w/ microtransactions - and, as you said, what stuff action games have cribbed from the experiment.

Honestly I can't decide between Doom 2016, Undertale, Minecraft, and Universe Sandbox 2 (Not really a game but I can buy it in the game section on steam so fuck it.)

I'm not fully sure what games I can easily call "greatest videogame of this decade" but here's a list of some I've played this decade and loved:

 

- Minecraft (It was 2009 when it released but it exploded in like 2012)

- Terraria

- Starbound

- A Hat In Time (EXCLUDING Seal The Deal!!!)

- Dusk

- Free Realms (Again, 2009 but exploded I think in 2011 or 2012)

- Bloons TD 5

- Colouring Pixels (actually spelt coloring pixels but since I'm British I added a U ^w^)

- Postal 2 (2003 sure but I enjoyed playing it, plus Paradise Lost DID come out in 2015)

- The Escapists + The Escapists 2

If I had to choose a personal best game so far I'd have to go with Red Dead Redemption 2 as of now. The game is just fantastic in my opinion and I haven't been able to pull myself away from it since the day I got it aside from some Doom (lunar catastrophe if I'm being specific) and some games with my daughter (mainly Ultimate Chicken Horse, another great game). Oh, and my emulators of course, but those clearly don't count :)
