2 1998

The absolute peak of video gaming. Just like 1939 for cinema. Ocarina, Metal Gear Solid, Pokemons, Half Life are the basis for all their respective genres.

My favorite game ever, metal gear solid releases this year.

Ocarina of Time is the best game of all time!

OoT best game ever made.

3 2004 2004 was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2004th year of the Common Era and Anno Domini designations

2. Roblox was made but only in it's Alpha stage. (It was also named DynaBlocks at the time but then they changed the name to Roblox)

3. The PSP is released.

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas and some great games, honestly every game was great in 2004. But 10 years later in 2014 its sucked hell.

Skyrim, Dark Souls, Arkham City, Portal 2, Minecraft (full release), L.A. Noire, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Fight Night Champion, Mortal Kombat, Witcher 2, the Binding of Isaac, Super Mario 3D Land and Limbo. The first 3 alone make it the best year for gaming ever in my opinion.

Minecraft took the world by storm, the 3DS was like a portable IMAX theatre for video games, and who can forget Skylanders rising in popularity. This was such a good time in gaming, Anti-Gamer Gate was non existant, and Reddit was rising in popularity.

Literally the best games in their own respective genres. Something for everyone to love.

2017 is without a doubt the best year in all of gaming for me (until another year detrones it). The ammount of great games that came out this year is outstanding. Zelda Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Hollow Knight, Crash N Sane Trilogy, Super Mario Odyssey, Cuphead, A Hat in Time, Doki Doki Litterature Club, Sonic Mania, Metroid Samus Returns, and even Pokemon USUM which I really liked. Simply put, this year was amazing for video games, and I haven't even played all of them.

15 1994
16 1999

It was Counter Strike's evolution! Come on counter strike fans let's put this on the top! Remember this was the start of evolution and road to Counter Strike Global Offensive!

Pac man world came out

Hey! I was born then!

Super Smash Bros was released, this was the start of a great series

17 2018 2018 (MMXVIII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2018th year of the Common Era (CE), the 9th year of the 2010s decade, the 18th year of the 21st century, and the 18th year of the 3rd millennium.

Here's my opinion/timeline:

1999: Born
2000 - 2003: Awesome years! Best games, best movies, best music and best T.V. shows, of the early 00s
2004 - 2007: Great years! But not as good as the earlier years, but still had a great childhood.
2008 - 2012: These years were okay, Things were starting to change a lot.
2013 - 2014: Bad! Things were starting to suck.
2015 - 2016: Awful! Things were getting worse.
2017 - Present: $#! tty music, movies, T.V. shows, etc.

Fortnite got released 2017 guys. This year has God of War, RDR 2, Spider-Man Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and one of the best E3s!

Rdr2, God of War, Spider-Man, Ac Odyssey, Far cry 5, Detroit become human... seriously do I have to say anything else

That year isn't even that good as of right now. Sure we were given Kirby Star Allies, God of War (2018) and Far Cry 5, but F O R T N I T E is literally eclipsing the love of these games, especially the game that aren't released yet like The Last of Us: Part II and Spyro: Reignited Trilogy. Oh well, I hope E3 2018 will turn out to be brilliant like 2017.

18 2014 2014 (MMXIV) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2014th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 14th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 5th year of the 2010s decade.

Other than Mario Kart 8 this year was wack.

19 1990

Super Mario World came out that year and it remains one of my favorite games of all time

20 1980
21 2006 2006 was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2006th year based on the Common Era/Anno Domini designations. It is the 6th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2000s decade.

Saints Row 1, Bully, Dead Rising 1, Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess, Elder Scrolls Oblivion, Hitman Blood Money, Okami, GTA Vice City Stories, Mortal Kombat Armageddon and much more.
Honestly an amazing and underrated year for gaming. I'd even say Sonic 06 was a highlight, sure it was hated but that's because the game got rushed, otherwise it would've been amazing as it had a great concept, fantastic soundtrack and would've been Sonic Adventure 3 essentially.

On September 1st of this year, ROBLOX has it's final release online after finishing it's late beta stage in early 2006.

22 1987
23 2012 2012 (MMXII) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2012th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 12th year of the 3rd millennium and the 21st century, and the 3rd year of the 2010s decade.

Skyrim, Dishonored, Borderlands 2, Far Cry 3, Hotline Miami, Walking Dead, Kid Icarus: Uprising, the list goes on.

Don't forget new super Mario bros 2!

Skyrim got released 2011

24 1993

The most legendary console war between the SNES and the Genesis. The SNES won the console war, by the way.
