    Where all things matter
    As I tend to figure out which year was the best for Video games, It is kinda hard to decode which year was the best because of story, gameplay and so on. I say this because there was so many old games back then with advance stuff at the time like GTA SA, Half Life 2, and Viewtiful Joe. Those were amazing games at the time and still is. I would say 2011, but I'm still stuck in the past, so I'll have to say 04. That year was the big bang for me. In addition after all these new games we seen at E3, and Gamescom, I might have to go with this year or next after games like Bloodborne, MGS Solid 5, and Assassin's Creed Unity come out but until then I'll stick with 04.

    (Sigh) I'm done lol... what year was it for you?

    2007 cause that's when CoD4 came out, the best video game of all time. CoD4 has the best hit detection of any modern FPS. Even better than Counter-Strike. Plus, the community is still very much alive, especially on PC.

    1994. Super Metroid, Killer Instinct (arcade), Donkey Kong Country, Earthworm Jim, Super Street Fighter 2, Mortal Kombat 2, 3D pre-rendered graphics was a revolutionary thing for gaming history, good old days.

    Pretty much every year before 2012 was a good year for me.

    1979 Pink Floyd released The Wall and the Atari 2600 was still very popular.

    lol kidding (I enjoyed that time.) but really in my mind it had to be the entire 16 bit era. SNES,Genesis,TG16,NeoGeo.... Never has a generation of consoles been so worthy.

    2001, where PS2's true system sellers released like Metal Gear Solid 2, Final Fantasy X, ICO, and more.
    Other than that, 2015 looks like it will be amazing. Persona 5, BloodBorne, The Order, Digimon Cyber Sleuth, Persona 4 Dancing All Night, Ratchet and Clank, Mortal Kombat X, Tearaway Unfolded, Uncharted 4 oh my~~~!

    I'll go with 2004. While it's mainly for UT2004, it was also the year GTA: San Andreas, Half life 2 and World of Warcraft were released.

    Nonetheless, when taking my own all-time favorite out of the loop, I would say that 2001 has the strongest line-up.
