I consider the SNES through N64 to pretty much be the Golden Age of gaming. Basically the 90s though the early 00s. The 00s were pretty damn good too, but the late 00s also had the start of the DLC practices I hate so much. To me, those kind of shitty anti-consumer practices have marred what could otherwise be considered a pretty damn good last decade and a half or so.
