2002-2004... when D3 and HL2 were coming out and came out. PC gaming was booming then.

Seeing what humanity have done with PC's I'm a 100% sure that we'll get the most insane and great games in the future^^ So 2009 and beyond! xD

 #6 - Posted by: alvaroM (Member) on 05-25-2008 at 06:54

2005-2007. I had a bunch of games of the FPS and RTS persuasion. But now I'm getting way too involved in music and other things to really hit those heights for a while.

 #7 - Posted by: Nitronumber9 (Staff) on 05-25-2008 at 07:42

1972 The year Pong came out. Since that's not on here it counts as other.

 #8 - Posted by: TheShady (Member) on 05-25-2008 at 08:38

2002-2004 I see dark things for game quality in the future and already. The hype is that of technology which is a bad thing for visual media. Same goes for movies. The last movies that were artistically of higher value were from the 1990s.

 #9 - Posted by: luukasa (Member) on 05-25-2008 at 08:47

2002-2004. Because cod 1came out

 #10 - Posted by: paulb39 (Member) on 05-25-2008 at 09:01

How the hell did people vote for 2005 to 2007? 2005 had HL2 which def was a good year for gaming But modern games are all shitty console ports 2000-2005 best years for PC gaming

 #11 - Posted by: 2dSpaceManHobo (Member) on 05-25-2008 at 09:31

Not all multiplatform games are console ports. In fact, many games are PC ports to consoles, but nobody seems to mention that.

 #12 - Posted by: paulb39 (Member) on 05-25-2008 at 12:01

No, it used to be like that, on PC, if popular eniough ported for console Modern games are developed for consoles and console gameplay, then ported to PC

 #13 - tomb raider - Posted by: deftones139 (Member) on 05-25-2008 at 12:17

All the tomb raider games are good an that was in the years of all

 #14 - Posted by: superflo (Member) on 05-25-2008 at 13:07

2002-2004 of course because of CoD 1. It still remember the first minutes in Normandy. It was summer 2004 and that was SO FREAKIN AWESOME.

 #15 - 2005-2007 - Posted by: MajorMajorMajorMajor (Member) on 05-26-2008 at 03:17

COD2 modding was great fun (the mp sucked compared to cod4). And then... Bioshock FTW. A console port to the PC that wound up being way better than the console version.

 #16 - 2007! - Posted by: TopLenny (Member) on 05-26-2008 at 04:00

2007 was the best year by default because Call of Duty 4 came out:rock::thumbsup:

When exactly was leeroy jenkins? 'cos those were the days...

 #19 - Posted by: Babycop2 (Member) on 05-26-2008 at 15:03

#4 is absolutely right. I remember when I really got into PC gaming... 1998 + with games like Rainbow Six and Rogue Spear (awesome games)....and it just got better.

 #20 - Posted by: alvaroM (Member) on 05-26-2008 at 16:47

#18 Leeroy Jenkins wasn't that long ago. At oldest, it came out at about 2005. At most. But it can't be any younger than mid-2007.

 #21 - Posted by: infrequent (Member) on 05-27-2008 at 13:21

2002-2007 because of the best fps mp ever - SOF2

 #22 - Posted by: Hibana (Member) on 05-27-2008 at 15:59

1993-1995 Commander Keen :rock: LOL #21 Yea SoF2 is great :)

 #23 - Posted by: afcgrimm (Member) on 05-27-2008 at 18:02

1997 Why? Final Fantasy VII (7) And no, I actually hate Final Fantasy. Weird thing is, I bought 7, and it is my #1 game of all time. Period. That doesn't mean Company of Heroes or Call of Duty 3 don't come very close though.

 #24 - Posted by: Aliblabla (Member) on 05-28-2008 at 04:19

Can't decide between 1999, 2003 and 2006. Those 3 years have my 3 favourite games of all time - Homeworld, Call of Duty and Company of Heroes.

 #25 - Posted by: MADCAR (Member) on 05-28-2008 at 06:27

2005, 2006, 2007, 2008....THE BEST YEARS EVAR( and more years to come)

 #26 - 2003 to 2007 - Posted by: Luger251 (Member) on 05-29-2008 at 14:34

I like 2003 to 2007 because 2003 cod1, halo combat evolved and 2004 Doom 3. 2005 because COD2 and Quake 4... 2007 because cod3 :)

 #27 - Posted by: o0_Bobbo_0o (Member) on 05-29-2008 at 20:38

97-2004.. cant beat those years.. its impossible

 #28 - Posted by: stev (Member) on 05-30-2008 at 11:44

How do you compare a 6000 dollar computer with 16k memory to a 2000 dollar computer with 4 gig. Unless you like pong it would obviously be the future. Although the best game, with the most advancements was Quake 2 which brought online play to the masses. I say the future because once 3D holographics come out on the new halfnium chip you aint seen nothin yet.

 #29 - Posted by: Keland (Member) on 05-30-2008 at 19:52

Most likely the 1990's, cause of Doom, System Shock, Duke Nukem, games like that, that I still have, heh.

 #30 - Posted by: Hibana (Member) on 05-31-2008 at 13:18

Yo peaple! dont vote at the best graphics year :S Vote at the best game year, that does not depend on the graphics, but on the story and gameplay! How can most of you say that 2009 or later will have the best games?:confused:

 #31 - Posted by: Denuto (Member) on 06-01-2008 at 07:08
