I don't wanna spoil the list so I'll just say #4 should be Higher!

I agree with you on #4 should be higher. Be i do agree with #1, that was probably my best year too. Cause Tribes also came out that year.

96,97,98 were great years for 3d platformers, racers, fPS games, RPGS, action adventures games, horror games, everything.

Those 3 years have us so many different types of games.

It wasn't just all FPS.

2007 is one I really, really loved. Getting Bioshock and Mass Effect (which was oddly absent from the write-up) in the same year was fantastic. I didn't play the first Witcher until a couple years later, but that was amazing as well. Plus, the Orange Box releasing with Portal included...

What a great year. I hope to experience another one of those soon.

Yeah, 1998 is in my opinion the best year in gaming history. In fact, I don't think it can even be argued against from an objective standpoint.

2013 is looking really good. We have two games (Bioshock: Infinite and The Last of Us) that I feel are all-timers, and at least one more (GTAV) that has potential to join them. In the end, I don't know if there will be enough all time great games this year to compare to the best couple years, but it certainly feels like a year people will remember and talk about a decade from now.

I agree that this has been a spectacular year so far. The Last Of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Metro: Last Light, the remade Tomb Raider, Injustice, Shin Megami Tensei 4, Animal Crossing, Civ 5: Brave New World... and what's yet to come! Dragon's Crown, Saints Row 4, Killzone Mercenary, GTA5, Beyong: Two Souls, Arkham Origins, Tearaway, Watch Dogs, Wasteland 2...

We should count our blessings, my friends.

1998. Half Life, Starcraft. Thats the best year.

1998 completely annihilates the other years.

It's not even close and the best thing about the games of 1998 is that most of them were original recipe, not sequels. It was that year in particular that caused the fall of the arcade scene. How could arcades compare to the epic win that was releasing on home consoles?

Gaming was changed forever that year and we are still feeling the effects of it. Of course, I loved the entire decade of the 90s but '98 stands tall as the shining pinnacle of gaming history. May we all see another year like that again soon!
