I was asked the other day about video game decades: which one was the most important to me personally, which did I think was the best in general. Such a difficult question. Difficult to even begin thinking about.
I was tempted to say the 90s. Just to avoid actually thinking about it properly — mainly because that's when I think I enjoyed gaming the most, personally. Most of my all-time favourite games come from that era — the SNES, PlayStation, Nintendo 64 era. But the 80s! That was a time where gaming just felt like a completely different space. I played for different reasons, my memories feel different, more scattered, but more important. Bizarre.
And the 2000s. Jesus. Where do you even begin there? The PlayStation 2 had, arguably, the best library of games ever.
Man, I don't know. I can't call it. What do you guys and girls think?
