14 Video Games You Won't Believe Are Turning 14 In 2014

12. Pokémon Stadium (February 29, 2000) 14-years ago children were, we dare say, rather more innocent. Instead of Facebook they played Top Trumps, colouring books were the equivalent to iPads, and rather than obsessing over Bieber and One Direction, they wondered what it would be like to have their own Pikachu. Pokémon Stadium let Pokéfans create their own dream team of the baddest Pokémon out there and compete to win cups - all in glorious 3D thanks to the relative power of the N64. And don't forget those awesome mini-games. 11. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (October 23, 2000) Skateboarding and other extreme sports games seem to have taken a bit of a backseat in the past few years. Back in 2000 they were all the rage, with no finer example of the genre than Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2. The second instalment in the series built on the slick gameplay mechanics of 1999's original by adding the ability to perform a manual; a simple yet revolutionary addition which basically enabled the player to extend their combos ad-infinitum. As well as featuring improved gameplay, the game boasted the tasty soundtrack we've come to expect of Tony Hawk's titles.
