Simple. What were the years where you think gaming was at its best, and name some of the games from said period.

Mine is 1997-2001

Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
Saga Frontier II
Parasite Eve
Metal Gear Solid
Resident Evil 2-3
Syphon Filter
Deus Ex
Whoops. Forgot about Legend of Dragoon.
Playing: COD: BOII, Hitman Trilogy, DXHR
PSN: T-Snake94, XBL: T-Snake 94

Sounds about right, especially since that time frame includes games like Starcraft, Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn, and Age of Empires 2 . . . among others.

Same as TC.

I like your taste TC. I would probably add Ape Escape or THPS2 to that list. And Spyro the Dragon.

But for me it is a toss up between that era and SNES era.
