Video games had a great year in 2007
By the end of 2023, the year will have been fantastic for gaming. Even if the year ended today, it would still be spectacular.
Imagine that, if nothing is delayed, by the time December comes around we will have released Starfield, Marvel’s Spider-Man, The Legend of Zelda, Tears of the Kingdom, and Final Fantasy XVI. We’ll also have Octopath Traveler II as well as Pikmin 4. There’s nothing like it. No matter which console you prefer, the year has been filled with smash hits (aside, of course, from some somewhat disappointing releases). Can any other year compare with 2007 in terms of video games?
Many have said it, but 2007 was still one of the best years ever for video game releases. Six iconic franchises were launched, including Bioshock Crysis The Witcher Mass Effect Portal Assassin’s Creed. Halo, Super Mario Galaxy, and The Legend of Zelda – Phantom Hourglass were among the new titles that fans loved.
Reddit user Wilhelm_c4t said that 2004 and 2007 were the “golden age” of gaming. The fun was in watching gaming develop. It was a great feeling to be able to participate in a period of progress, and subsequently – if you were lucky – sparked countless social movements that swept the globe for many decades. It loses its charm every day as it is explored more over time,” added Cheesemangee.
Most of us can’t resist looking back at 2007 15 years after the fact. After all, nostalgia is powerful. It’s still undeniable, however, that this was an incredible year in terms of new IPs. We had no idea what we were about to experience.
