The WWF also licensed a video game by Creator/{{Acclaim}} called ''WWF Attitude'', released in 1999 to much fanfare after the popular ''WWF War Zone''. Rather than sprites, the visuals were photo-realistic (for the time), there was tons of speech and voice samples, many wrestlers and outfits to unlock, and a great, in-depth "create-a-wrestler" mode. When it was released, it was considered the best wrestling game on the market, with Creator/{{THQ}} being the only ones close enough to touch it with their WCW entry. ''WWF Attitude'' managed to capture much of the spirit of a ''[[Wrestling/WWERaw Raw]]'' episode or [=PPV=] broadcast during the Attitude Era, hence the name, and at the time it was praised by many. However, the gameplay was considered stiff in its time, as well as the date of release. Though it included many of the {{face}} and {{heel}} wrestlers accurately, there was no Wrestling/TheBigShow and not many match types (for one, there was no "Hell in a Cell"). Arena customization was exclusively locked from the years 1997 to 1998. When Acclaim's license ran out, THQ picked it up and made the popular ''Wrestlemania 2000'' and ''No Mercy'' games, also based on the Attitude Era, to which the latter was considered one of the greatest wrestling games in the medium. They would also produce ''[[Wrestling/WWESmackdown SmackDown!]]'', which would later become ''Smackdown VS Raw''. ''WWE '13'', features the Attitude Era heavily as the main focus, with ''2K16'' also having a decent focus.

* ''No Mercy 1999'', which included the first tag-team "[[GimmickMatches Ladder Match]]" between "New Brood" members "The Hardy Boyz" (Wrestling/MattHardy and Wrestling/JeffHardy) and Wrestling/{{Edge}} & Wrestling/{{Christian}} and Wrestling/{{Chyna}} winning the Intercontinental Championship from Wrestling/JeffJarrett in his last WWF match (making her the first woman to ever hold the championship).

Mileage varies on the quality of the WWF[=/=]WWE product after the end of the Attitude Era (since the company has lacked the competition that created the necessity for the Attitude Era), and when (or even if) it began to go downhill, but few can deny that the wrestling world hasn't been the same since.

* The aformentioned ''[=WrestleMania=] 13'' match between Bret Hart and Steve Austin, which managed to perfectly execute a rare "[[FaceHeelDoubleTurn double turn]]" -- Austin (the heel) and Hart (the face) both turned after the match was over, with Austin becoming a badass face and Bret becoming an [[ForeignWrestlingHeel America-hating Canadian heel]] (he remained a face in Canada and other foreign territories, though).
