Heroes 3 and Online Frags - 10 Best Games of 1999

There may have been fewer games in 1999 starting cult series popular for decades to come, but there was certainly no shortage of timeless hits. Here's our subjective retro list of the top 10 games of 1999.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

  1. Release date: September 29
  2. Developer: Neversoft
  3. Genre: sports game
  4. Platform: PlayStation

No mention of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater was found [author's note].

. . The game, which allowed you to ride a skateboard and perform various tricks, was enthusiastically received around the world, receiving almost maximum scores.

Critics praised the engaging skateboarding mechanics, which gradually dosed the level of difficulty and encouraged us to hone our skills. This was accomplished thanks to intuitive controls and well-rendered physics, allowing you to drive in meticulously designed, expansive locations. A great punk rock soundtrack deserves a separate mention, successfully highlighting the atmosphere of the time.
