Just curious to see what everyone thought was the best game that was released between 2000 and now.

Well, Torment, X-Com, and Starcraft are all out with that stipulation. And I don't think any Fire Emblem deserves that title.
...
Wind Waker. Honourable mention to Knights of the Old Republic.

I completely agree with Wind Waker.

My Favorite LoZ and the only one I've gone back and beaten 5 times.

Honorable mention goes to MGS: Snake Eater, I've squeezed every hour possible out of that game.

I think any objective analysis would show WoW to be the only correct answer. I've never played it but I doubt any other game even comes close to it in terms of number of players and number of hours played (at least no console game).

I can't decide between
Call of Duty Modern Warfare
Grand Theft Auto IV

Metal Gear Solid 4. Not only is it the game of the decade, it's the pinnacle of human achievement.

Problem with this is that then only a PC MMORPG can win this award. Everquest would probably be second on this list.

I think of this more of an individual player. For me, it would be Oblivion. It's my favorite game every made, put over 120 hours into it (and still play it, though not as religiously as a couple years back).

Tough to pick one....

I'd probably say Gears of War 1 & 2 (can't pick between them) as the co-op in that was probably the best gaming experience I've had this decade.

Other contenders would be: Bioshock, Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, Oblivion (still need to play Fallout 3), Guitar Hero 1 &2/Rock Band 1&2, Zelda Twighlight Princess, some of the GBA/DS Castlevania games, Modern Warfare 1 & 2, Half-Life 2 and expansions, and more I'm forgetting.

BioShock.

GTAIII, MGS4, HL2, Uncharted 2, MW and RE4 are all worth mentioning too.

I'd probably say World of Warcraft, considering I played it for ~5 years.

No question I'll have to go with:
Metroid Prime (GC)

That game is in my top 10 games of all time.

I'd have to say COD4, simply because it really set the standard for multiplayer games.

Resident Evil 4. Nearly every 3rd person shooter since has opted for the over the right shoulder view.

I've played so many great games over the last 10 years that pointing to just one and saying "you're the best" is almost impossible. For me personally, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater & Call of Duty 2 were two of the most memorable games I've played this decade. Fantastic games that I may never play again to avoid tarnishing the memory. I'm not sure that if I really thought about it that either would be my Game of the Decade, but they were the first two to pop into my head.

Mass Effect for how I could just get lost in the game and suddenly realize 3-4 hours just flashed by but for the game that I loved to play with friends online is COD4.
