Which decade, in your own opinion, had the best video games? PC games count. Is it the 80's? 90s? 00s? What do you think?

eh, I kinda wanna say the 90s, though the end of the 00s was better. The earlier 00s were a bunch of poor attempts at stories(an poor attempts at 3D graphics) with the gameplay pathetic compared to the 90s. But in the late 00s the gameplay was getting back in good shape and the stories are getting a lot better. (Yeah, I know there were some games that were great in the early part of the 00s but as a whole it was kinda meh) --- NEW ROCKET KNIGHT~

It's hard to say because I don't know how I'll feel about the past decade until another decade has passed. Right now, I can look back on the 90s and even early 00s with the fondness of nostalgia, but I probably didn't appreciate the eras so much at the times they were happening. Right now, late 90s > early 00s> tie between late 00s and early 90s > 80s

90's, despite me being 6 (almost 7) when 2000 rolled around. I play(ed) a lot of the games from that decade and they are by far better then some of the crap today, although there are some fantastic games around now. --- 3DS is going to be the best portable ever and hopefully one of the best consoles ever.

I've gotta say the 80's. Childhood nostalgia may be a factor, but I'd be lying if I said I ever had as much fun gaming as I did during the 80's. --- MWR FC: 2617-3139-7951

^ I probably would have rated the 80s higher, but I was born in 1984, so I didn't get much of a chance to game in them. :)

I'll agree with 90s due to US release that Includes Super Mario Bros. 3-64, Link to the Past-Ocarina of Time, Final Fantasy 4-9, ect. It's very diverse and includes some of the very best all time greats. And I only there series which already include their all time bests voted. Too bad about Majora's Mask being outside of the 90 though.

If we're going to talk about best games in reference to just what we like, then my answer is always going to be the most current time period.
Going by sales, however, the best selling video games were all in the 80s and early 90s. I'd say the 85-95 decade was the best year for video games. --- Q: How can you tell when I'm trolling? A: I've made a post. "Look at me! I'm quoting myself! Aren't I cool?" ~ Me
