The year was 1998.
While President Bill Clinton was busy dealing with the Lewinsky scandal, the videogame industry was releasing some of the greatest games ever made. It could very well be single greatest year for videogames, before or after. Games such as:
Resident Evil 2
Final Fantasy Tactics
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
StarCraft: Brood War
Thief: The Dark Project
Oh, and a little thing called Metal Gear Solid.
That’s what I call a good year.
