Video games are an important and ever expanding, complex art form, involving thousands of hours of manpower to produce, and millions of hours spent in enjoying the final product. Role-playing games, first person shooters, casual platformers, action-adventure, and fighting games are just the tip of the iceberg, with mobile gaming making up almost half of the staggering multi-billion dollar gaming industry’s net worth.

Whether you’re team Xbox, team Playstation or the self-titled PC Master Race, you’ll be in good hands with some of the most critically acclaimed games that have come out over the past ten years.

There’s a game for everybody’s wants and needs; whether you’re looking to hone your competitive skill online or embark on an epic journey among the stars. If you want to undertake a quest-laden journey in a monster infested land, or in a historical setting there’s something for you too. Furthermore, you can undergo a harrowing tale of survival that will make you quake with fear, or you could just sit back with a casual game and let off some steam after a hard day’s work.

Optera Digital is made up of a group of individuals who are all avid gamers in some form or another. We’ve got some people who have over 40,000 Gamerscore on Xbox Live, and those who have painstakingly Platinumed every single Playstation game they’ve ever played! Along with all those 100% completions, he is also one of the first 10 people in the world to get the hardest achievement in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus!

We have trash talkers and casual gamers, gamers who can’t let go of a side quest and, some who exclusively play MOHAA and nothing else. All of us however agree, that some of the best games we’ve all experienced have been released (or re-released) in the past decade.
