GI Show - The Great Games Of The Decade Debate

by Alex Stadnik on Dec 26, 2019 at 05:30 PM

Welcome to 2019's last Game Informer Show! With the 2020's rapidly approaching, Leo Vader, Joe Jubba, Ben Reeves, Jeff Cork, and I took it upon ourselves to examine the Game Informer Game of the Year from each of the last 10 years and discuss whether or not we agree with the pick. Was Mass Effect 2 the best game of 2010? Why does the panel lean Red Dead Redemption 2 over God of War? Is Titanfall 2 the greatest piece of fiction ever gifted to humankind? Stay tuned until the end of the show to also see the exclusive reveal of our 2019 Game of the Year!
