You could add Knights of the Old Republic to the list too, but yeah, it wasn't much beyond those games.

2004 is a popular year up here, but I think most people up here base it around GTA: San Andreas and Half Life 2. To me, that year was awesome because of Warhammer 40k. And I did start playing WoW, so hard to ignore that juggernaut. I don't know I would put it ahead of 2007 or 2008 though, as far as the more recent years go for the people in that age bracket. I thought 2007 was going to get like 10 votes and trump this poll from the view of younger gamers.

1991 and the beginning of the SNES/Genesis rivalry. That was when gaming was the shit. 1998 was awesome as well

Re: So, what WAS the best year in gaming in your opinion?

2012, and next year my opinion will be 2013.

I know people have nostalgia for gaming. However, games as massive as Skyrim. with such amazing motion capture as L.A. Noire, or acting like in Far Cry 3, simply were not even imaginable in the early 2000's. Never mind back in 1990 when I used to curl up on the couch and play with my original GameBoy.

My best friend said it best. Give some people time machine and they'd go back in time to kill Hitler. Give me a time machine and I'll go back in time and troll myself with today's games. "Yeah that's right kid, you keep jumping on that turtle. I'll be in the future slaying this bad ass dragon!"

Re: So, what WAS the best year in gaming in your opinion?

As we didn't get Super Mario 64 over here until 97, that's got to be up there as one of, if not my overall favorite year.

Throw in 2007. MASSIVE year when you consider it was the start of so many great franchises. Bioshock, Uncharted, Assassin's Creed & Mass Effect. Then throw in Super Mario Galaxy, Halo 3, God of War II and (for me) the best Call of Duty ever and you've got yourself a motherfucking gaming year!

1996, thanks to Civilzation II (the undisputed :bryan), but also games like Red Alert, Master of Orion II and Duke Nukem 3D in addition to those already mentioned in OP

1994 for me.

Super Metroid, Sonic and KNuckles, Killer Instinct, Final Fantasy 6, Earthworm Jim, TIE Fighter, System Shock, Donkey Kong Country, and Wing Commander 3 to name but a few gems.

Re: So, what WAS the best year in gaming in your opinion?

2004. 4/5 of my all time favorite games came out that year (MGS3, GTA:SA, Half Life 2, and Rome:Total War). 2009 would be second (Uncharted 2, AC2, Demon's Souls, and Arkham Asylum), '08 (GTA IV, Fallout 3, MGS4) and '10 (Mass Effect 2, RDR, Heavy Rain) would be tied.
