What was the best year for gaming?

I wouldn't say year, probably generation. The PS1 generation it is, in that case.

It's going to be somewhere between '96, '97, and '98 depending upon your particular taste in video games.

People citing anything in the 7th gen years make me shake my head at how far this hobby has fallen.


I'll stand 2007 and 2011 up against any year from the '90s.

Also, the hobby hasn't fallen. Not at all. You just prefer old games.
