With so many high-profile PS4 games launching in 2016, some fans have introduced the idea that 2016 might be the best year for the PlayStation ecosystem.
That got me thinking: what IS the best year for the PlayStation ecosystem? And that question prompted two others: what is the best year for the Xbox ecosystem? The Nintendo ecosystem?
Therefore, I've created three threads, one for each of the big three.
So let's talk Nintendo here. Which is the best overall year?
Is it 1994? That year saw Super Metroid, Final Fantasy VI, Mortal Kombat 2, Super Street Fighter II, and Donkey Kong Country
Is it 1998? That year saw 1080 Snowboarding, Ocarina of Time, Banjo-Kazooie, F-Zero X, Turok 2, and Roque Squadron
Is it 2000? That year saw Perfect Dark, Mario Party 2, Majora's Mask, Mario Tennis, Excitebike 64, and Banjo-Tooie
Is it 2001? That year saw Conker's Bad Fur Day, Pikmin, Smash Bros. Melee, Animal Crossing, Paper Mario, and Advance Wars
Is it 2007? That year saw Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Zack & Wiki, Radiant Dawn, and Pokemon Diamond/Pearl
Is it 2013? That year saw Super Mario 3D World, Fire Emblem: Awakening, A Link Between Worlds, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Or is it another year, and why?
