I don't know if I remember it being one of the greatest. But I guess it's great just off the strength of Xbox joining the mix.

MGS2 blew my mind. When I first played that in elementary school idk if I was ready to handle that sorta stuff. GTA 3 is also top tier in atmosphere/soul

Feeling you -- your cadence seeps

What was the year Bioshock Infinite and Last Of Us came out? That was an incredible year for gaming to.

So was 2017 my gawd so many 8 or above rating games came out that year

Halo 1 as well. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this was the first ever first person shooter to have a dedicated grenade button (where you don't have to cycle through to grenades and equip them). At the least, Halo made it standard and that's a FPS staple that's wonderful.

Metal Gear Solid is my favorite franchise, #3 Snake Eater being my favorite game. But, Sons of Liberty was how I was introduced to the series. Long Story short, I played it first in Japanese, just the intro Tanker portion, for about a year. I couldn't figure anything out, but I learned a little bit more each time I played. Absolutely amazing game.

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

The PS2 era, in general, was one of the best eras when it comes to video games, possibly the best ever. Especially when you compare it to the current era of video game attempting to be "art" instead of just being fun to play, which is what matters when it comes to video games.
