The website wired.com released its list of the most influential video games of the decade. The game that had the biggest impact on the gaming industry in the 2010s is Fortnite. In second place is a game that got millions of gamers to start gaming - Minecraft. Other games in the top five include Gone Home and The Legend of Zelda. Many people argue games like Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Pokemon Go should be in the top five. Pokemon Go was the first major game to use Augmented Reality (AR). Millions of gamers ran around the world's streets in search of mythical, cute Pokemon creatures.

Wired.com said there were so many creative games in the 2010s. Many of them "reshaped the entire video game landscape". Wired.com included "just those [games] that made the most sizable, culture-shifting impact". Fortnite was top "because it's one of the only games of the decade to truly [enter] pop culture". Fortnite is now more popular than many sports. The annual Fortnite World Cup takes place in New York at the home of the US tennis Open. A total of $30 million went to the winners in 2019. Wired said: "Its influence is just starting to show its true scope."
