Don't forget silent hill 2. Also 1999 had some pretty big games as well such as silent hill 1, RE:nemesis, system shock and plenty of others.

It was a great time for sure but Sega going under sucks.

Re: 2001 is one of the greatest years for video games

2001 for me was like having a lot of different consoles...PS2, PSX, N64, Dreamcast and I still even have that NES/SNES during those days. Was also a time when I was discovering PC games, had so much fun with it.

Re: 2001 is one of the greatest years for video games

It was a great year. GTA3, FF9, MGS2, Halo, Sonic Adventure 2, Shenmue 2,DMC, Conkers Bad Fur Day, two of the best extreme sports games in Dave Mirra 2 and SSX Tricky, Max Payne, Undying, the very underrated Anachronox, Silent Hill 2 which granted wasnt fully appreciated until a few years later, Luigis Mansion, Red Faction, the GBA, the PS2 finally finding its feet after a shaky start etc. (although a few of these did release in 02 if you were in Europe)

On the not so good side I remember it being the year that both the N64 and DC "died" even though they still had a few great games left in the tank. Obviously the N64 was being phased out in favour of the GC by the end of the year. As early as around March/April I remember reading an article which had the DC in front of a headstone with something like "RIP 1998-2001" written on it...that sucked.

Re: 2001 is one of the greatest years for video games

Indeed it was a stellar year. I remember playing GTA 3 for the very first time on a borrowed Hewlett Packard computer which I had to return. Been hooked to the GTA franchise ever since.

Max Payne, Tekken 4 and Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Played and completed MGS2 more times than I can count. If only we could have played as Snake more than we were given (sometimes I used to revisit MGS2 just to play his part) but still a fantastic game regardless.

I love, love and love the early 2000s....

2002: GTA Vice City, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, 007 Nightfire, Fifa 2003, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast etc

2003: Max Payne 2, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, WWE SmackDown! Here Comes the Pain, True Crime: Streets of LA etc

Early 2k ftw.

No worries fam-a-lam, shit happens.

If anything, the reason I remembered its release date was because Luigi's Mansion 3 launches on Halloween.

Are you going to pick it up? It looks great and I'm always happy when Luigi gets time to shine.
