Just curious to see what everyone thinks was the overall best year. My personal vote would probably be 1998.

I always thought 1998 was, which also had Starcraft and mgs1.

Edit: just checked Wikipedia and I forgot what a juggernaut of a year 1998 was. Add Resident Evil 2, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Fallout 2, Grim Fandango, Baldur's Gate, and Starsiege Tribes to the list.

2004 and 2007 were the biggest points of gaming, or the peak of each console generation. Just look at the origins of most of today's game sequels, all from 2007

2003. Year of the best game to ever come out. Big Rigs Over The Road Racing. But srsly, 1996-97, Diablo 1.

Actually a pretty fair answer. 2015's gonna have Witcher 3, Final Fantasy XV, The Division, and a slew of other games that look incredible.

Assassin's Creed 1 is awful. Last week I wanted to play through it before starting 2 and ended up head-desk'ing out of boredom after the second hour. THE CONTROLS ARE SO BRAINDEAD. I gave up. I couldn't take any more.

Just had to vent a little.
