Let's travel back in geek-time and check out the best video games to come out of the early 2000s.

This was a time when you could waltz into your local video game store, and pick out a game for a couple of bucks that you earned at your weekend job. You just needed to make sure the recommended PC specs matched up (sort of) with your computer, take it home and install the game with a pass-code and CD's. You never had to worry about having an internet connection, you just enjoyed your new game and that was pretty much it!

Oh, how times have changed! Regardless of how bad the graphics might have been back then, if you compare it with games of today, you were still blown away at the gaming tech of the 2000s! Games that came out of this era are ones we still talk about today, even continuations of the storyline and titles are still being created some 20 years later.
