best video games of the 2010s

Video games have been relevant since the 80s but not until a decade ago, video games have taken a huge leap into becoming a lifestyle and job for people. From the start of the 2010s to 2019, games have evolved all the way to virtual reality. Games have become normality in peoples everyday life. Thousands of video games are released every year, but very few make a truly big impact on the gaming community. These are the ten video games that have had the biggest in sales and the biggest impact on the gaming world.

1. "Skyrim"

One of many masterpiece games Bethesda gaming company has made. Released in late 2011, the fifth installment in the Elder Scrolls Series, "Skyrim" was the best by far. The game was fluid, fun, and adventurous in every turn. The game ended up winning the game of the year.

2. "The Last Of Us"

"The Last Of Us" was a game that was released in 2013, and from personal experience, there wasn't a game that I gravitated emotionally more than the two main characters in the game. The game is set in a zombie-filled world trying to survive. This game will go down as one of the best.

3. "The Witcher 3"

Another role-playing game on this list, "The Witcher 3" is another game that won the video game of the year. Filled with fluid controls and gorgeous graphics, this game will go down as one of the best role-playing games of all time.

4. "Grand Theft Auto V

One of the fastest selling games of all time, "GTA V" is a free roam game that the user controls every action the character you play as. The game is filled with amazing graphics and smooth controls. For someone starting to play video games, this is a game to check out.

5. "Red Dead Redemption"

This is a game that is set in the cowboys time in the old time west. You go around as John Marston, a former bandit trying to run away from his past, the game is smooth and everything about it is awesome!

6. "Horizon Zero Dawn"

This is the most recent game I played on this list and it's one of my favorite games recently. The game is set in a world where machine animals take over the wilderness. The game is filled with smooth and amazing graphics. It's a great game to give a try.

7. "Call Of Duty Black Ops"

Another one of the best selling games, "Black Ops" was one of the best games of the "Call of Duty" franchise. It was filled with intense and emotional missions. The story was filled with great scenes and great controls. It's a game that every gamer will remember.

8. "Halo Reach"

Some people will disagree with this, but this game was a part of my childhood. "Halo" is one of the most famous game franchises of the past twenty years, but "Halo Reach" was a game that was filled with fun and awesome action in the game.

9. "Doom"

doom video game

This game was filled with violence and gore but filled with a great story and smooth controls and great graphics. This was another game made by Bethesda. This game was a reboot from the 90s, but it was made great.

10. "God Of War"

The newest addition to the "God of War" series, this game was filled with great cut scenes, beautiful graphics, and smooth yet easy controls throughout the whole game.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Dear Grandma,

I wish my words could adequately explain how much I miss seeing your smile and hearing your laugh. You were such a bright ray of sunshine in my life and now that you're gone, I can't help but remember all the times we had together.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.
