Was gonna say this. Even in slow years there's always a couple really good games.

Omg Unreal Tournament 99.
Deck 16 was my favorite map. It was so freaking awesome.
Had many good times playing that on my friend's PC.

Add Jagged Alliance 2 to that list. I probably agree with you.

Probably '99 for me as well. Half-Life came out in late '98, but I bought it in '99 along with Baldur's Gate and Alpha Centauri. You can add Sim City 3000 to the list as well.
