You're just WRONG, overall the last 10 years have got to be the worst in gaming history. Nintendo's major franchises (starfox, Zelda, metroid) are all suffering in different ways. Other M was a disaster. Final fantasy series is on the ropes. Since FFX, FF has been going completely downhill and it's basically a movie with hardly any gameplay anymore. The combat system and loot has been totlly removed/dumbed down/gutted.
Who cares what Nintendo is doing? They may have been relevant about 15 years ago but PC gaming has long since offered better gaming. Starfox, Zelda and Metroid were always kiddie and Final Fantasy has been dead since FFVII. Consoles are for gaming on a budget - there are some decent exclusives but you have to suffer terrible graphical fidelity (720p @30fps is like watching movies in black and white), when they would have been much better on PC.

On PC ... I've played all those games you mentioned. Torchlight 2 is basically a worse version of diablo 2. The itemization is bad and the story/world is worse. Not to mention Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 were huge disappointments especially with the 'always online' bullshit and the gimped mod tools. Starcraft 2 is basically another parallel universe in terms of story, the story in SC2 is totally not congruent with the firsts. We're seeing what World of warcraft did to blizzard (totally fucked them up). The people behind the original diablo 2 and starcraft were blown to the winds and after 12 years the new developers totally sucked at giving sequels to two of gamings most beloved franchises.
I haven't played Torchlight 2 yet but it looks better than the original, which was a game I loved. While Starcraft 2 wasn't really my cup of tea (I'm more a C&C 1, Warcraft I sort of guy) it was still a solid game and Diablo III was exceptional, though it was undermined by the auction house system.

Borderlands 2 isn't anything special, people who are over-wow'd by graphics and don't have good taste in gameplay find it 'amazing'. Older FPS's were more fun on release then the entire single player campaign of borderlands 1+2 and had more longevity (UT2004).
Borderlands 2 is a great game, especially when played co-op. The graphics are solid, though I wouldn't say they're the main appeal of the game. Very few games do I put anywhere near as much time into, so that's pretty high praise.

Metro is YET ANOTHER FPS (gtfo). Witcher is a mediocre RPG with a shitty combat system and Dishonored is a half baked version of thief combined with bioshock for the ADHD call of duty crowd.
Metro 2033 was excellent (though it could have done without the QT-events); The Witcher 2 was superb; and Dishonored had great atmosphere and great gameplay - it wasn't perfect but certainly it's an example of how the games industry is pushing things forward.

I think gaming is better than ever. XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Dishonored both grabbed me like few other games have, while you still have interesting and well made indie games like Legend of Grimrock, Black Mesa and Torchlight. Skyrim was in a league of its own and King's Bounty is great for those who like old-school RPGs. If you can find decent modern games then you're simply not trying.
