The Q: What was the best year for gaming?

The GN Q

If you ask around, you’ll find that some people thought 2009 was one of the best years gaming has ever had. Others, however, found it to be fairly bland in terms of revolutionizing how we play. As 2009 draws to a close, it’s interesting to wonder what year was the very best in videogame history, and, for me at least, coming up with an answer seems like a very daunting task. So I pose it to you, GN readers:

What year was the best in videogame history?

Feel free to answer this one by trying to be completely objective, or simply based on your own personal favorites. After a fair amount of deliberation, I think I’m going to settle on 1998 as my personal year of choice. That incredible year saw the release of hits like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Metal Gear Solid, Half-Life, Starcraft, Resident Evil 2, Banjo-Kazooie, Grim Fandango, and plenty of others (let’s not forget the PC port of Final Fantasy VII). It also happened to be the year that I entered high school, so the time was right for me to enjoy every last shred of gaming goodness I could get my hands on. Ahhh, memories….
