Best game to come out the year you were born?

Recommended Posts

Half Life 1, which also doubles as my favorite game serie... Coincidence?

 

Could it be that everyone's most dearest game is as old as themselves? What about you guys, huh?

Hey Whipper Snappers.  Mine is Pong... Yep, I'm that old!

Got you beat.

 

I had to go look up some old mechnical arcade games. Sega's Jet Rocket was probably the most advanced, and used similar technology to miltary flight simulators from the 1960s. Though in truth I don't remember ever playing it. The closest I got would have been one of the many Periscope variants that lingered on until Space Invaders arrived.

Big names like Symphony of the Night and FF7 came out in 1997.

 

Unfortunately I've never played any of these and out of what I have played, I don't have much to choose from this year. 7th Legion and Monster Truck Madness were cool, lol

Pac-Man.

 

Same. 1980 seemed pretty uneventful (save for this, Missile Command and Battle Zone) for games.

BTW y'all basically freshly-ejaculated spermatozoa. Except the handful of people born earlier, you guys are primordial soup. ;)

I have quite a few to note (needless to say, I now love my birth date, after seeing these games):

System Shock 2

Counter Strike

Team Fortress Classic

Driver

The Longest Journey

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

Unreal Tournament

Quake 3 Arena

 

In my opinion, the crown goes to System Shock 2, even though I haven't played it yet (I got it yesterday, so I will try it out soon, coupled with System Shock 1). From what I've seen, the atmosphere is great and it is considered to be an excellent game. Plus, it takes place in an abandoned space station, with an evil A.I. wanting to kill you, turning ship members to mindless zombies and making robots hostile towards you.

Yall fucking are not even born yet. When I was born, the Roman kids down the block still played with their wooden swords. Fucking Anno Domini babies, no wonder they have no taste in games.

The few I remember off the top of my head.

 

Alone in the Dark, which kickstarted the Survival Horror.

Dune 2, which kickstarted the Real-Time Strategy.

Mortal Kombat, which kickstarted ripping people's heads off.

Wolfenstein 3D, which kickstarted the First-Person Shooter.

Ultima Underworld, which kickstarted the hair on my chest upon completion.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which kickstarted future fetish related DeviantArt accounts.

Jill of the Jungle, which kickstarted boners.

 

Also Ultima 7, the last good Ultima. And Commander Keen 4, the first Keen game to really start shining.

Super Mario World, going by its Japanese release date. There's also the US release of SMB3, but SMW will always have my heart. I fucking love that game.

Better than fighting each other using twigs and FRIGGIN tree branches with lots of leaves on them. Never underestimate the power of a twig stab if you wear no armor!

Another World / Out of This World.

Sonic 1, F-Zero, Street Fighter 2, Sunset Riders, Metroid II and PuLiRuLa.

 

Take your pick, mine is definitely the first though. 1991 wasn't too bad, heh.
