Both Star Wars: Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight and Fallout came out on 10 October 1997.
Which helps me date when I first really got into videogames. I had played a couple of games before that, but those had all been games that I’ve seen at my friends’ places first and then got for myself. The release of both these games was an event that I was completely oblivious of. A state of things that would be very different a year later.
