So Half-Life is 15 years old today.

Just noticed 15years ago, we were blessed with one of the greatest games with Half-Life. Also just from the top of my head, it is the 15th anniversay of StarCraft, Banjo Kazooie, Metal Gear Solid, Turok 2, Pokemon, Sonic Adventure, and my personal fave, Ocarina of Time. (Know I forgot some lol)

Time flies huh? 1998 was deff one of my best year of gaming.

No year had as many landmark titles as 1998. On PC alone we had Half-Life, Unreal, Thief, Descent: Freespace, Starsiege: Tribes, Baldur's Gate, Fallout 2, Grim Fandango, and StarCraft.

Year-by-year analysis of the finest gaming has to offer, and (eventually) more!

I wasn't a PC gamer back then, but I remember going to Toys R Us with my dad to buy Star Wars Episode I: Racer for N64 when it released.

That was almost 15 years ago too. Whoa.

Also Rainbow Six, Falcon 4.0, Railroad Tycoon II and Grand Prix Legends.

And on the hardware front, 3dfx was at the height of its glory with Voodoo2, but Nvidia would begin its rise to the top with the release of the Riva TNT.

Great, great year.

I wonder if it'll be on Steam for 15 cents like it was 10 cents for the 10th anniversary.

Great, great year.

There's also Metal Gear Solid (had a PC release, too); Gran Tourismo; LOZ, Ocarnia of Time.

Possibly the best year for gaming, ever.

Why has nobody done a remake or revival of HL: Opposing Force?

There's actually one being made right now. It's going to be similar to Black Mesa, in terms of style.

Do you get to the Cloud District very often?
Oh, what am I saying; of course you don't.
