Drowned In Sound’s best videoganes of the 21st century - RESULTS!

Last week 53 of you lot made 828 nominations to decide on the definitive best videogames of the 21st Century*. A massive 337 individual books have been nominated and you lot managed an utter mess of the titles of games such as Skyrim, Breath of the Wild and even Grand Theft Auto V.

The Guardian did this and quite rightly said that Minecraft is the best thing released in nearly 20 years. Do you lot agree or are you all stupid and wrong? Let’s find out!

* including the year 2000, sorry @Scagden
