Best videogames of the decade, of course. To wit:

1. Breath Of The Wild
2. Super Mario Odyssey
3. Super Mario Galaxy 2
4. World Of Tanks
5. Skyward Sword
6. A Link Between Worlds
7. Super Mario 3D World
8. Mario Kart 8
9. Fortnite
10. Hearthstone

Keep in mind, I only listed games that I've personally played a lot of, not the ones I think objectively are the best...that would take more research than I've got time for ATM. Games like Hearts Of Iron 4, Civilization 6, The Last Of Us, GTA V, Skyrim, Fallout (something), and No Man's Sky would almost certainly make the list.

TomM, philanthropy can include medical research, or helping a museum acquire new artwork. Your comment suggests it’s just handouts for people who should be pulling themselves up by their bootstraps. And for the record I agree with you that improved economy is more helpful than handouts.
