      I'll have to reiterate some of you and go with 1998. Starcraft and Ocarina of Time were released, and my life would never be the same...

        Explain why 2011 was so good. I honestly think that the past few years of gaming have been pretty bad aside from a few fantastic games.

        Yuuup! 1995 was also a really good year, 16-bit gaming was at it's peak. Donkey Kong Country 2 and Chrono Trigger came out that year just to name a few.

              don't forget crash bandicoot: warped, xenogears, and pok'emon


              Xenogears was an awesome game! Just seeing the name brings back tons of memories.

                  Just off the bat I'll say 2005, for Advance Wars: Dual Strike, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, and Civilization IV.

                        1987 was also an excellent year, and some of the biggest franchises got their start that year (at least here in North America, as some of these games were released in Japan a year earlier).

                        Metroid
                        Kid Icarus

                          DARN IT! ! :lol: HOW COULD I HAVE MISSED THAT ! ! I got it for my 25th birthday HAHAHAHA uuggh "shakes head" I looked up Black and that came out in "2006".I bought that when it was first released and I took it back, the story wasnt pulling me in. Gorgous looking game play though. But "05" was really good I remember it being hit after hit after hit just really good titles all across alot of diffrent styles for everyone.

                            Very very true "86" first grade I still recall talking to friends at lunch time, about the video game machine you plug into the tv and you can control the little man that threw fire balls awesomenss. But another year I would say it's not my favorite but it was good year is "2005". Some of these games I don't play that I mention by the way but they had really good reviews. Not the best year but it was a good year.

                              I'd say 1994, '96, '98, 2007 and '11 were the best years for gaming. If I had to give the edge to just one I'd say '98 would get a slight nod over the rest because of Resident Evil 2, Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Metal Gear Solid.

                                1995, because that's when the PlayStation was released in America and the Sega Genesis had good games like Toy Story and Comix Zone. Oh, and the extremely popular Chrono Trigger was released for the SNES that year too.
                                There is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

                                One is evil and the other one is good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed the most.

                                    1999.

                                    At that point in time the Playstation and the Nintendo 64 systems were in full swing with an already great library of games. Also the year the Dreamcast came out.

                                        Hey everybody, I was just wondering what year everyone thinks was the best for video game releases and what games you liked,

                                        just off the top of my head with no aid from google i think my favorite year would be 1997. The games that come to mind most that make me pick that year are Goldeneye and FFVII. I loved both of these games also Mario kart 64 comes to mind as another great game. Whats your favorite year?
