Best Video Games of 1998


The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time


Overrated as hell, but that doesn't mean that this is a bad game, its far from that, - ExcaliberDG11

Highest rated game on Metacritic. No doubt it is the best of 1998. It was the best then, and 17 years later it is still the best!

How is this not #1!? Resident evil 2 was a good game but it's controls gameplay graphics and extras do not compare to OofT!

2 Metal Gear Solid

Come on, we all know Ocarina is overrated, so why not actually vote for a REALLY great game rather than just a great one? Besides, this one has me in it. ;D - RevolverOcelot
