This is one of the few Elbo catalogs that inspires zero feelings of nostalgia for me. In 1999 I was completely tuned-out from the gaming scene. I was in my last semester of college and working as a programmer at the ill-fated Mercator Software. That was a lot but the focus of my attention was getting married to my longtime girlfriend. I didn't want to get engaged before I was done with school but with the end in sight I was secretly shopping for engagement rings. December 1999 is a time I will always remember, but not because of gaming.

However, I'm sure many of you look back at 1999 games fondly so this catalog is for you. Looking at it I have to wonder if Elbo had two catalogs this year because only PC games are featured. I was hoping to find some cool Dreamcast pages in this catalog but alas nothing.
