Best year for video games.

I would say 1993. DOOM redefined what I thought PC games or video games in general could do, Mortal Kombat II came out and arcades were booming, SNES and Genesis were in a deathmatch, and everything about gaming was suggesting that a new era was literally right around the corner.

Great time to be gaming.

i am assuming that most posters are born around the 80s and the 90s, because with nostalgia i would vote for 98, but after much thought when you replay some games back then, it just doesn't feel the same after all these years, was born in 1990.

I feel that I would have to choose 2004, it was when I was exposed into spending more time with my friends playing video games (rather than playing it with 3 of my other siblings) having our own mini competitions in Def Jam, Star Wars Battlefront and Burnout 3.

I wish they would make good games like those again.

You forgot the best one from 2004. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vampire:_The_Masquerade_%E2%80%93_Bloodlines


I originally played this as the card game Jyhad in high school. Good stuff back in the day.

Whenever the Play Station Portable Vita was released. That thing is the best thing ever.

Just kidding.

1998 was the best.

I would rather cut my two feet off than play on a Vita or a console. #PCMR.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.
