Beat Saber: I was very skeptical of VR in gaming. Surely the tech is a long way out, right? That all changed when I went to an arcade that had VR and happened to play Beat Saber. I went home that night and immediately ordered a VR headset. It's a complete joy to play and gives you a good workout. I've probably logged hundreds of hours and it's been a hit at our house with almost everyone who's visited. Seriously if you haven't played this, you owe it to yourself to find a VR arcade and give it a shot. In my eyes the VR headset was worth the price for this game alone. If anything, it deserves a nomination just for showing that VR games can be great.

DOTA 2: I've seen several posts lamenting the lack of League of Legends, when its near equal in the MOBA genre was a 2013 release. Someone will have to fact check me but I think DOTA 2 is among the highest prize pools of all time in the esports world. Fiercely competitive and not for casuals, this update of a Warcraft 3 custom map certainly has a claim for being among the decade's greats. Plus, if you like rallies, DOTA 2 is as good a bet as any (although I don't think you should bet on one this contest).

Tetris 99: Online Tetris Battle Royale? With 99 players all at once? With strategic decision making on who to target? For free? How can you not nominate this game?

Please consider using this topic to add your own games to nominate. I may add some others that I think are being overlooked as I continue to see what's being mentioned on the board.

A major series I've noticed being overlooked is Forza Horizon (1/2/3/4). My personal favourite is FH3 though they're all superb.

Great choices Dabu, I've demoed VR to over 100 people at my house and Beat Saber has always been a huge hit. Tetris 99 has been a blast over the last year, and then of course Dota's the best game of all time, IMO.

It's really unfortunate the cost of entry for VR is so high (relatively speaking). You don't realize how much fun Beat Saber is until you actually play it.

Beat Saber looks like a ton of fun to me, and I haven't played it. I wouldn't be buying Beat Saber as an entry point to VR; I'd be buying VR specifically to play Beat Saber.

A Hat in Time: remember the glory days of the N64, when 3D platforming was basically new? Now, imagine an indie developer making a game that feels like a love letter to Mario 64 in the collectathon sense, with great controls, a timeless graphic style, fantastic music, and enough charm and personality to be memorable for anyone.

Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale: It's easy to forget this is eligible for the contest since the original release was pre-2010 and so many games have come out since, but speaking of games with charm, take on the role of a bumbling girl who has to manage her father's debt by running an item shop out of her home. You can run dungeons to acquire wares or you can simply leverage the market. Capitalism, ho!

I want to point out that Dabu and the gang were the first ones that called how absurdly strong Chrono Trigger was going to be in 2015. Without Melee and Undertale going off, it might have won.

I've only nominated Arkham City (and the guru nomination), so I'll add the games which I see in this topic.
