Yeah, there was definitely a sports game craze going on back then.

This was when sports games didn't suck. They acctually put work into the games instead of just releasing the same game with updated rosters.


Pssh, I played the crap out of all the NBA 2K games on Dreamcast (and even PS2). Those games were updated just as incrementally as they are today.

2004 and 2005 were just as jam packed imo. I hope we do have another year like that, but I don't see it happening for a long time.

Zelda OoT and Xenogears

those two games put all other game ever released to shame :)



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

I have some faith that 2016 is gonna be a huge year, if we get God of War and Horizon on top of GT7 and Uncharted 4. XB1 of course has Scalebound, Quantum Break, and Crackdown. Wii-U has Zelda U. Then of course there's all the crazy multi plats like Mad Max, and so on. I doubt there's gonna be as many 90+ games, but it's still gonna be an awesome year nonetheless.

Metacritic scores mean nothing to me, 2010 was my favourite year in gaming.

Yeah, I just like seeing the scores to see what the critics generally thought back then. 2001 is still my favourite year, but one of my favourite games, WWF Smackdown!: Just Bring It, isn't too high on Metacritic..
