1997 was an incredible year for video games. The Nintendo 64 and PlayStation were going strong, and we started to get games for them that are still loved today! The PC was no slouch either, making this year full of fun times no matter what you played.
Final Fantasy VII
It's been 20 years since we first took control of Cloud Strife, joined up with AVALANCHE, and tried to stop the ShinRa Corporation from destroying the planet. A game so impressive that people still consider it the best in the series.
The game that defined multiplayer on the Nintendo 64, we all loved shooting each other as James Bond and his enemies. Except when someone picked Oddjob.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
It changed the series forever and introduced the world to the "Metroidvania" genre. You controlled Dracula's son Alucard as he fought his way through a massive castle, and then again when it flipped upside down!
Star Fox 64
The game that introduced the rumble pak to the N64, nothing beat feeling the hits in your controller as you fought Andross' legions of ships and your teammates chattered away. Screw always having to save Slippy though.
