This is a collection of books that aims to look back on a specific video game year, exploring the games, trends and key events that occurred during these twelve months.


The phenomenon of retro gaming is already well established in France, the public's enthusiasm for this subject no longer needs to be demonstrated. If contextualization seems essential, retro gaming cannot be content to be approached solely through the prism of nostalgia. If Proust's madeleine retains its evocative power, it is above all necessary to use the knowledge accumulated over the years to support a more analytical and original approach, not only to better understand the phenomenon, but also to pay homage to it, while watching him with hindsight.


The year 1998 proved to be exceptional in terms of video game productions. It was marked by the unchallenged domination of Sony's PlayStation and by the release of a number of games that have since become cult classics: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Half-Life, Fallout 2, Banjo-Kazooie, StarCraft, Gran Turismo, Resident Evil 2 or even Grim Fandango . All in all, an exceptional year, which we invite you to rediscover with us.
