90's

Yep 90's no question.



I Love Playstation, but my uncle works at Nintendo.

 

Hard question because my favorite time is the late 90's & early 2000's

I'll go with 2000's tho

Tough choice since you said which decade, but a decade is 10 years, so...1996-2006(when Kingdom hearts 2 released outside of Japan). lol

But... that's 11 years



I was born in the lat e 90's and I didn't get to play games until I was like 5 or 6. Even I know, the 90's were the best I mean...if I could make a list of amazing games from the 90's it would take a couple hours at least. I grew up on PS2, Gamecube and Xbox. So, I don't have a bias of any sort. I mean...Mario World, Mario 64, Zelda OoT, Chrono Trigger, FFVI, FFVII, FFIV, Metal Gear Solid, Gran Tourismo, Crash, Sonic 1 Sonic 2, Sonic Adventure...and I'm not even scratching the surface.

But it really depends on what you want in games, if no online is a deal breaker for you, the 90's won't be your generation. But if you enjoy local multiplayer or great single player experiences, the 90's is where it's at.

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.

I'd go with 1996 - 2005 as well, if possible.
The 7th generation was largely a dud when it comes to my favorite genre, rpgs. While there were some great ones like Valkyria Chronicxles and Skyrim, what was mainly noticable was the large amount of absent games for home consoles.
No Persona (will finally come out at the end of this year), no new Kingdom Hearts, no Wild Arms, no Suikoden, no Breath of Fire, no (mainline) Dragon Quest.
And on a personal note, a shitty Star Ocean, a mediocre series of Final Fantasy games, and I haven't gotten around to finishing the Tales games yet.



The 2000s for me, followed by the 80s. The 2000s have most of my all time favourite the games (PC and console), and the 80s is the decade that made me a gamer.

I never said which month in 1996 so you don't know if it turned into 11 years or not. lol



2000s easily! Ratchet & Clank (GC, UYA, ToD and ACiT are all masterpieces!), Sly Cooper, Jak and Daxter and so much more makes it an easy choice for me
