Darn, that's a good question. I still have so many games to play from the last ten years, so this could certainly change...but I think I need to go 2017. Breath of the Wild gives it a huge leg up. 2013 is really close. I dunno

I'd probably go...


I just realized the odd years tend to be a lot better for me. Weird.

*if we include Xenoblade Chronicles

Between 2013 and 2017, hard to pick.
Will pick 2017, but you gotta add Nioh on there, it was my GOTY.

2017: The year of PSVR, GTS, Zelda, Horizon, Mario Oddeysey. I think it even surpassed 1998 thanks to VR.

I chose 2018. There were a bunch of good games this year, just like there were a bunch of good games last year, and the year before that. But, generally speaking, the quality of games gets better as time goes on. So, from that perspective, pretty much every year is the best year in gaming, until the next year comes.

.... I'll go with 2017, rarely did I remember such a killer year with great titles on my Switch/WiiU/3DS.

I went with 2017, cause that year we witnessed the biggest comeback this industry has ever seen.

For me the best was 2011 because I discovered the PS2 after being only a PC gamer my whole life, then in 2012 I discovered PS3 and later PSP, but now I'm back to my master race roots again.

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

I'm going to go with 2017. Best Zelda game ever. Best Mario game since Galaxy 1. And Persona 5, my favorite video game of all time!
