Hello friends, enemies, lovers, weirdos, stalkers and creepers of VGChartz!

Today I would like to present to you a discussion thread ;o!

 

Which decade in the history of gaming do you think was best?

Was it the 1970s where everything was in its infancy and new technologies were being tested to see what could be produced and to attract a group of people who never experienced this new phenomenon :O!?

Was it the 1980s where there were huge improvements in the technology and story telling came into focus for the first time!?

Was it the 1990s where gaming revolutionized into CDs and 3D imagery!?

Was it the 2000s where the online era came into focus and new controls such as wireless, touchscreen , etc have been introduced?

Was it the 2010s (the last six years and counting) the best!?

Great question!

My pick is 1991-2000. That includes the fourth, fifth, and beginning of the sixth generations - in my mind the top three generations.

We saw amazing games from Nintendo, Sega, Capcom, Konami, Rare, Square, Valve, Namco, LucasArts, and Blizzard. Some of the industry's best games arrived during this stretch, including A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Final Fantasy VI, Super Mario 64, Final Fantasy VII, GoldenEye, Banjo-Kazooie, StarCraft, Half-Life, Ocarina of Time, Panzer Dragoon, Shining Force, Metal Gear Solid, SoulCalibur, and Deus Ex. There was so much experimentation, competition, and innovation. Truly a golden age.



the 90's, without a doubt.



The 2000s!

2 of the best FF games, Pokemon, TimeSplitters, Battlefront, Halo, Gears, Persona, Uncharted and many more!



2000s. 7th gen was just legendary.

The 90s without a doubt, it had three of my favorite consoles of all time.



 

1996 - 2005 (this is also a decade), so 5th + 6th console gen + golden PC era + 3d accelerators

If this is eligible I'd vote for 1996-2005 also. I adore the sixth gen, but would prefer to keep out the seventh.
