Happy birthday!

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.
