First of all, shut up. Second of all, I played all these games when you were kneehigh to a grasshopper, you little whippersnapper, so don’t sass me when I get all nostalgic as I look over this list. At least, I would look over this list, if I could just find my damn trifocals… for my other trifocals.
GameSpot has put together a list of what they consider to be the top 26 games of 1997. Now I hardly even remember 1997, but I sure as hell don’t remember some of these games. Alundra? Is that even real?
Other games, like Goldeneye 007 and Final Fantasy VII, stand out as absolute classics and got hours upon hours (some would say months upon months, and we call those people ‘Honest’) of gameplay on my now retired old consoles.
Check out the full list here, or via the links on the names below. Or just stop reading this and go play one of them, nerd.
