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!

Best game of the fifth generation. it may be my least favorite 3d Zelda title on a console, although I've never played majora's mask befor ein my life, but all of these Nintendo haters can s*** it because this is the second highest review score behind super Mario galaxy according to gamerankings and you cannot cheat Nintendo out of a win because this is the second most influential game of all time tied with super Mario 64 perhaps only behind the ORIGINAL super Mario bros gthis game is awesome and anyone who doesn't think so has either not played it before or is in denial. - HeavyDonkeyKong

2 Resident Evil 2

Awesome game that introduced 2 awesome characters - Leon and Claire - Magnolia

3 Metal Gear Solid
4 Half-Life
5 Crash Bandicoot: Warped
6 Banjo-Kazooie
7 Thief: The Dark Project
8 Pokemon Red

I thought this was '96 in Japan which means its original release date was '96.
