We went from the year 2000 [Timesplitters, Majora's Mask, Banjo-Tooie, Diablo II, Balder's Gate II, Year of the Dragon, Skies of Arcadia, Deus Ex, Code Veronica, Marvel vs Capcom 2, & Perfect Dark].... to 2001 [Halo]. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

Seriously dude... find something better to do. All this is doing is just wasting some poor moderator's time. You don't need to keep making new accounts and posting this again and again. We get it. Give it a rest.

yeah 2001 was rough, the only game that came out was halo

#14 Posted by SexwithTrees (4 posts) -

That's because most Call of Duty fans weren't born yet when TimeSplitters came out.

"Year of the Dragon"? Do you mean Spyro 3 by that?

Anyway, we also had Jak and Daxter that year. Remember that some years are just not good. Last year, for instance, didn't hold many games, especially when compared to this year's incredible cornucopia of excellent offerings topped off by the likes of Skyrim and Saints Row the Third. As for the time between? Well, I for one thought this past decade was excellent. We had Metroid Prime and a Metroid revival in general, we had Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim, we had Kingdom Hearts, we had the Ratchet and Clank series, we had Bioshock, we had Half-Life 2, we had Portal, etc.

Or am I completely missing the OP's point?

Don't feed the trolls, I know, but wasn't 2011 fucking amazing, guys? Skyrim, Portal 2, Gears 3, Dead Space 2, Saints Row the Third, Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, Dark Souls, Arkham City, Ghost Trick, Witcher 2, Skyward Sword...and that was 10 years after the "death of gaming!"

2001 is also the year of Max Payne.

#19 Posted by ImHungry (398 posts) -

Yep, 2001 was a pretty harsh year for those without an Xbox, not a single game got released. That was tough.

I'll give the OP this....

2001 was the year First Person Shooters died. Regen and console-first development as killed the genre.

Also seriously for TF2 to be the ONLY shooter with free post-launch content, in past 10 years, is disgusting.

What's wrong with TimeSplitters? It's beauty was decidedly burgeoned by the PS2's launch, but couldn't the same be said of nigh every third party launch game? Moreover, the series would go on to flourish like a marvelous butterfly with its second incarnation.
