1996 Voted as ‘Best Year in Gaming’ by UK Public

Have you ever wondered what the best year in gaming was? Well wonder no more! The British public have had their say, and voted for 1996.

Limitedtimestruggle382d ago

I have some many fond memories as a 10 year old gamer from back then! The best of times!

Dfooster382d ago

Yeah that is a good choice. Great times

Snakeeater25382d ago

Lol Nintendo 64 … talk about a shitty year for gaming

Old McGroin382d ago

The N64 was amazing at the time, how old are you, 12?

CobraKai382d ago

Mario 64, Mario Kart, WaveRace. They’re prolly too young to appreciate em. My kids love the N64.

Terry_B382d ago

No..1996 was not a good start for the N64. The system had a lousy start in comparison to the SNES, Playstation and probably even the Sega Saturn.

CobraKai382d ago

So…. Nevermind the first time Resident Evil or Tomb Raider was released, a damn near arcade perfect port of Tekken 2, Quake, Wipeout, Crash Bandicoot, Super Mario RPG, Nights, Panzer Dragoon Zwei? It’s shitty cuz the old N64 is it?

More of a 97 person myself.
FF7, Symphony of the Night, Gran Turismo, Grand Theft Auto, Dynasty Warriors, Diablo, Fallout, Tomb Raider 2, Mega Man Legends, GoldenEye, Turok, Wing Commander Prophecy, Star Fox 64, Einhander, Tobal 2, Bushido Blade, Colony Wars, Ultima Online. Was a great year to start working at Funcoland.

You beat me to it. I loved both years, but 97 was one of my favorite years ever.

Marcello382d ago

2013 was a good year too. Dead Space 3, The Last of Us, GTA5, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Tomb Raider reboot, Bioshock Infinite, Batman: Arkham Origins, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Grid 2 & more.

Limitedtimestruggle381d ago

Dead Space 3? That game only deserves to be on rock-bottom lists. In my honest opinion.

Marcello381d ago

Its is very Marmite that game but to me it was only that love story nonsense that was bad, really bad.

Crash 3 is still my favorite to date. 4 was good too but not as memorable as 3 for me.

But really 1-4 are all great platformers. Hoping we get more entries.

Cortex Strikes Back is my favourite. Twinsanity is my least favourite.

Crash Team Racing for me. I had great times with the original and still play the remake from time to time.
