Titanic, directed by James Cameron, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Sleepwalkers. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Everybody's Golf or F1 Pole Position 64 Human Grand Prix: The New Generation.
