Was 1998 The Ultimate Year in Video Gaming?

Kotaku: 2011 was a hell of a year for big game releases. I remember at some point in the fall thinking, "Dude, we are approaching 2007 territory here."

The late 90s was just the golden era for gaming for me, most of my favorite games ever are on the n64 and psx. I only played mgs a year or two ago but I enjoyed it more than any game I've played this gen, maybe more than any game I've ever played period.

What made 2007 so great waas that many of those games were new IPs, like Bioshock, Assassins Creed, Mass Effect, Portal, Crysis, and Uncharted.

Farsendor12285d ago

playing cod4 was almost like playing a new ip it was just awesome at the time. there was not many modern shooters out there at the time. it was all ww2

Even last year was freaking awesome. It's so hard to pick a "best" year.
