The year 2000, the faux millennium, marked the first year that the readers and the GameSpot editors agreed wholeheartedly on the game of the year. We expected that Final Fantasy IX or Shenmue might rear its head on your number one game list and displace our choice but that didn't happen. Shenmue placed in the top five for the readers' vote, but surprisingly, Final Fantasy IX was unseated by Resident Evil: Code Veronica for fifth place. The past year truly was a good year for RPGs, and Chrono Cross earned its place at number one quite easily for GameSpot. But you, readers, had other ideas. Chrono Cross won with only 4,174 votes as the contest was pretty much equally divided among first through fifth place.
