1998 in PC gaming: Dune 2000, Axis and Allies, Railroad Tycoon 2


20 years ago PC gaming was thriving. Half-Life re-defined the game design of FPSs. Baldur's Gate and Fallout 2 gave hope to gamers who were waiting for the next generation of RPGs. Adventure gamers enjoyed Grim Fandango immensely. Real-time strategy fans spent countless hours playing StarCraft. And let's not forget Commandos: Behind Enemy LinesHouse of the Dead and the wonderful Railroad Tycoon 2, one of the best railroad management simulation ever released. Abandonware DOS hosts a few more games released 20 years ago, in 1998:

1998 was a good year for movies too, think about Saving Private Ryan, The Truman Show, The Great Lebowski (one of my personal favourites), American History X and A Bug's Life.

Talking about music, I can't remember a single song from The billboard top 10 of 1998 except for Candle in the Wind. Here it is:

1"Too Close"Next
2"The Boy Is Mine"Brandy and Monica
3"You're Still the One"Shania Twain
4"Truly Madly Deeply"Savage Garden
5"How Do I Live"LeAnn Rimes
6"Together Again"Janet
7"All My Life"K-Ci & JoJo
8"Candle in the Wind 1997"Elton John
9"Nice & Slow"Usher
10"I Don't Want to Wait"Paula Cole
