RTCW, empire earth and vice city
Games from the 90s that were actually good. Modern gaming sucks dick.
2002 is probably one of the best years of gaming if not the best year.
Only considering the top Christmas releases of 2001 for a single console, these would be your options heading into 2002. ‘01-‘04 was just fucking ridiculous. Back to back classics, back to back mind blowing experiences, talented nerds competing and bringing genre defining titles to life. Definitely a golden age.
There are so many good games in this period you couldn’t list them all in a single post.
2002 was 21 years ago.
21 years before 2002 was 1981.
“Modern” gaming, in my opinion, didn’t start until the 7th generation. That’s when all the worst trends reared their ugly heads and stayed for good, and when overall cultural decline mixed with casualization of gaming destroyed it as a hobby.
I get what you’re saying, but sincerely 6th gen has more in common with 8 and 16 bits than it does with actual modern gaming.
The only ones worth playing on this list are Ace Combat, DMC, MGS2 and Silent Hill 2
'Modern' as in 2002?
PS2 demo discs that came with OPM
Quake 3, rtcw, hitman, civ3, steel panthers, battlefield 1942
I was mainly playing GameCube: Super Monkey Ball, Super Smash Bros., The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Super Mario Sunshine, Eternal Darkness and Timesplitters 2.
The other games I remember playing were Pokémon Sapphire and Warcraft 3.
I had a Mega Drive growing up, so it felt a bit weird to be all in on Nintendo, but I had a Gameboy too, and I had played SNES and N64 at friends' houses
I wasn't even born O_o
America's Army 1.0.
I was hardcore addicted to that game when it came out. I had enjoyed UT1999 and BF1942 a lot, but AA just had a tenseness you didn't get with those two. Slowly creeping across Bridge, the absolute panic when you see muzzle flash, the thrill of unloading on some poor sod with a SAW, the mad dash for the rifle dropped by friendly and enemy snipers alike, there was nothing else like it back then, and still nothing like it today. It was nice to have a FPS game that rewarded players for shooting from crouched or prone positions instead of forcing everyone to play like a hyperactive Rambo.
The parachute matches were always good for a laugh. You had to qualify on parachute just to play them, but it was clear at least half the players never mastered it. 30% would die on impact, and another 30% would be injured from their landing, making every parachute match a desperate survival mission for the attackers.
You can still play the modern remade version of Bridge in the modern AA:PG game, but it's not the same.
I’m sorry anon but playing the free zogbot simulator as your main memory of 2002 gaming is automatically the worst post in the thread.
Speak english retard. Also his post was among the best.
>America’s Army 1.0
Never played it all that much since it was more of a curiosity that we tried out as a joke, but this game always stuck with me because of how much fun it was to go awol and shoot your drill instructor or the MPs. Most of the time I spent playing was waiting for the scenario to reload so I could go awol all over again. In 2002 it was abundantly clear just how bad signing up for the military was as a career option for anyone with a modicum of potential, and we had recruiterfags coming to our school twice a quarter trying to manipulate kids into joining up. So it was fun to just fuck around for laughs with their recruiting game, which in fairness was actually well made.
>You can still play the modern remade version of Bridge in the modern AA:PG game, but it's not the same
no it's not
Fatal Fury 2 and Killer Instinct on SNES with my buddy but most of the time we were out clubbing and chasing pussy
God I wish I was fucking age in 2002. What was the early aughts club scene like? Any funny stories?
Total degenerate shit, I was in a group of friends and it was all a gross fucking fuckfest, everybody fucked with everybody, good thing I never fell for any of the girls there lmao.
Ironically it was "healthier" than nowadays, less drugs around, or, harder/more expensive to get for teens. But it was somehow more fun, maybe because I was a teen.

At that point I was probably fooling around with Bleem or something trying to get it to work. Also I'm pretty sure I discovered hentai either that year or the year later

I was playing RuneScape all day every day. Wish I was playing something else, but at least I have more games to play today.
I was playing Jak and daxter, mgs2, gta3

Real talk: Mario Sunshine.
I think I got Metroid Prime that year as well but I didn’t actually beat it until 2004. I borrowed Prime 2 from my friend right after and beat it in one weekend, so either it was a lot easier/shorter or I just got better at games.
