It has already become a significant part of life these days to play video games, whether some adults like it off or not. For avid players, they can’t imagine a world without video games.
It is like music to them – without it, their lives would not be complete. The titles below represent some of the best console games of all time.
Nobody can really argue about this game. In fact, many will agree that Tetris is the best game of all time. In fact, you’ll see a lot of remakes of it being played today. Credit is given to a Russian computer scientist and a Japanese company that mass produced the game. Even those who are not fond of playing video games get addicted to this game. When it was released back in 1984, the game became a global phenomenon. By 1989, Nintendo placed this legendary game in Game Boy and NES, which helped give the title its amazing success. Ever since then, you can find the Tetris game in every console, showing people’s undying love for stacking blocks. Whilst Tetris is really addictive, it has been proven that it can provide health benefits, like controlling cravings and even preventing PTSD effects.
Super Mario 64
At second in the list is this brick breaking Mario, which is not the same Super Mario you might be thinking of. Mario’s Goombe-stomping actions are enough to remind the gamers all over the world about the side-scrolling Super Mario games of Nintendo. But this game which was released back in 1996 transported the fans into a whole new world of Mario that no other video game could ever do. It showed players how to interact with the 3D world. This game sold over 11 million copies, thus proven to be one of the bestselling games on the Nintendo 64 console. However, its real impact comes from its off-platform, where it has shifted the whole design imperatives in this industry.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
This is another title that ‘veteran’ gamers are familiar with. The pointy-eared protagonist Link from the 1998 Nintendo 64 game has made it to the top of the list. There are a couple of reasons why this game is considered one of the best. First is its ability to let the players explore a 3D world so sublime and intimate. There are puzzles, dungeon levels, and artful areas, not to mention its breakthrough interface. And because of how this game was made, it has given other game developers ideas on how to create their own games. Truth be told, they couldn’t topple this game.
Most FPS fans have probably heard of this title before. The titles Counter-Strike, Halo, and Call of Duty all owe their gameplay styles to this title. This game was introduced back in 1993, the game introduces a space Marine against the legions of Hell, bringing its gamers to an extensive battle for Earth’s protection.
