    What are your favorite years in video games? Personally, the 90s were my favorite. The SEGA Genesis, SNES, PS1, Saturn, N64, Dreamcast, arcades, etc. There was so much good stuff during this time. This site pretty much sums it up as they claim 1998 was the best year in gaming and I must say that 1998 was definitely a good year:

          I used to hold the PS1 era in such high regard but looking back, most of the games are impossible to play now. The NES is what I consider the classic home console and even then, there's a wide hit-to-miss ratio.

          I guess 90-95 and mid-era PS2 until now. But even that seems very general, there's so many games and consoles I've never set hands on.

            The PS1 game really are hard on the eyes. Even back in the 90s it wasn't pretty to look at and I only wanted one because of its popularity. Once I had a PS1 the games lost their appeal quickly with the exception of a handful that I came back to time and time again like Mega Man X-4, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater to name a few. I started playing my NES again back in 1998 or so for nostalgic reasons and did that for several years after that and hardly touched my PS1. Then I got a Dreamcast in the early 2000s and that was amazing. Finally, I got to have arcade quality games at home with all the graphics intact. The Dreamcast blew my freakin' mind back in the early 2000s after it was discontinued in the U.S. just as much as it did when it first came out back in 1999 in North America.

                I'd say around the mid 90s, the 16-bit era. The sega channel was the bomb, and I still think the SNES was the best console of all time. Gaming turned to shit when the ps1/n64/etc hit the scene, insane load times for the disc based systems, crappy 3d graphics, and a glut of friggin FPS games.

                  I agree. Console games were horrendous for the most part but arcade games were as exciting as ever so basically that's what interested me the most. When I saw the Dreamcast in action I thought that finally we left that horrible era and console gaming is matching the exciting arcade games in terms of graphics and gameplay. I know graphics aren't everything but try playing most PS1, Saturn or N64 and it's nearly unplayable due to how bad the graphics and framerate are. The games that stood the test of time were mostly 2D games which is why even SNES and Genesis graphics are far easier on the eyes than most PS1, Saturn and N64 3D games.

                    I would put the best years of the arcade even earlier than consoles. Basically, arcades turned to shit when the street fighter/mortal kombat craze hit the scene. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate those games, the issue is that those were the ONLY games out. You had a glut of fighting games (including 20 street fighter machines alone), a few friggin sports video games like basketball and football, and some leftover mid-80s games like galaga and rastan. When the fighting craze hit, game manufacturers seemed to just give up on anything which wasn't a fighting game.

                    ....Until the insane price era began. You could play some suped up version of pole position for $1.50/game, or you could go a few machines over and play normal pole position for $0.25/game.
