It’s now 2018, and that means some of your favorite games are already having some big birthdays. Grand Theft Auto IV turns 10 this year, and turning 20 is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. 1998 and 2008 both had their share of great games, and although there’s a lot of games to look forward to this year, there’s always time to look back on the ones that were the most important to us.
As the year goes on, we’ll continue to spotlight important games on the anniversary of their Western releases. Below, you can find everything we’ve done so far, including our roundups of all the big anniversaries, celebratory livestreams, features, and more. And if you want to get really nostalgic, you can also check out our roundup of the biggest games from 2007.
