In 1998, Konami released the first game of another legendary stealth-action series Metal Gear Solid - a spectacular spy action game and successor of the Metal Gear series from the previous generation of consoles, which was made under the guidance of the now legendary game-designer Hideo Kojima. It set new trends for the genre, set its own standards, and is forever enshrined in players' memory as one of the best spy action games ever released on consoles. In 1999, the company began another series, which also contributed greatly to the survival horror genre. Their in-house studio Team Silent released the first installment of Silent Hill, where, unlike Resident Evil's static camera angles, the camera is now fully three-dimensional, and the fear of sudden "jump scares" is replaced with a lingering atmosphere of the unknown.
Throughout the lifetime of the PlayStation, the console has hosted such popular games and series as Syphon Filter, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Twisted Metal, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Mortal Kombat, Medal of Honor, Doom, Quake, Driver, Need for Speed, Mega Man, Parasite Eve, Alone in the Dark, Clock Tower, MediEvil, Die Hard Trilogy, GTA, Diablo, Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, Destruction Derby, Oddworld, Carmageddon, MDK, Tenchu, Soul Edge, many sports simulations like WWF SmackDown!, Pro Evolution Soccer, Madden NFL, immortal FIFA and a lot of games in different franchises, popular among teenagers, like Spider-Man, X-Men, Harry Potter and other titles, which by 2007 together with various software gathered about eight thousand, and the console was on the market for 11 years. The Nintendo 64 also had a lot of good games, for example, Super Mario 64 of 1996 was the first platformer game that, unlike Spyro and Crash, allowed you to move freely through the game world. Also, Golden Eye 007 - the game based on the popular franchise about the secret agent James Bond and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - the best game in history according to Metacritic were released on it.
