The Final Post of the Decade

As the final post of the decade, here's a list of major releases from the year 2000. Back in 2000, we were all still playing N64 and Playstation, the number of Pokemon was just expanded to a radical 250 as Gold and Silver prepared to release, PC gaming was still going strong, and the Dreamcast was still around, and the PS2 was the new big thing. The list sure takes me back. 2000 was actually quite a year in gaming.
