Best Decade Ever poll - an update

A fascinating set of responses yesterday - as exected the computer games clustered towards modern day, while novels were spread all over the place (except for the 1930s, clearly a bad decade for authors).

I did like the observations from two people here and here that the current decade is the best ever if you're a media consumer, as not only are more works being produced but that we have access to a bigger library of previous works than anyone has ever had before, thanks to the digitisation of content.

I also managed to leave a media-type off the list, for which my apologies. Have it now:
