Which past gaming year/moment would you time travel to? ("Time Loader" Keys - Ended)

If you could time travel, which past gaming moment or year would you return to?

"Time Loader" is a game about returning to the past, with tons of nostalgia for the 90s.
If you had a time machine and could travel to the past, which year or moment in gaming would you return to - and why?
Do you have fond memories of a certain time in your life with gaming, favorite game/console releases, or gaming cultural moments? Alternatively - are you having the most fun gaming in the present day?

  • If I could time travel, I would return to the year 1998. This was the year that some of the most iconic video games of all time were released, such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Half-Life, and Metal Gear Solid. I would love to experience these games for the first time again, and to see how they changed the landscape of gaming.
