Popular video games come and go, but there are some games that stay in our hearts longer than others. Whether it’s a complex multiplayer adventure or a simple arcade game, some video games are constantly being adapted to newer consoles, proving that they’re going to be enjoyed for generations to come. So what games really are timeless classics? We’ve compiled a list of the top five timeless video games of all time for you to enjoy with your friends at home or during your next GameTruck party!
The Legend of Zelda truly is a legendary game. In fact, it has spawned numerous memorable, enjoyable, timeless games. What we like about the Zelda series is that, no matter what new game or edition they released, the roots of the game have always stayed consistent with the others, making its players sure that they were going to be getting a great game every time. Though the first Legend of Zelda game was released years ago during the NES era, it remains a must-play for every gamer today.
Starting out as a simple arcade game, the creators of PAC-MAN had no idea that it would turn into the gaming sensation that it is today. We all know him, we all love him… the iconic yellow ball of a character has stayed with us through generations of video games. Spin-offs have even come and gone (here’s looking at you, Pac Man: Adventures in Time) Even all of these years later, gamers young and old enjoy this timeless, revolutionary sensation.
This game started out as a simple platform game, the type that has been around since ancient gaming times and is still created today. Though the series has come far from the original format, the classic feel of the game still holds up today. Nintendo has since opened up the Mario world to unbelievable levels and has released classics like Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Odyssey, and more. The level that some Mario Stan‘s will take their love for the series to is next level!
#2: Street Fighter
The Street Fighter series is credited with bringing along many of the conventions that 1-on-1 fighting games follow. A staple of gaming in the late ’80s and early ’90s, it’s still nearly impossible to visit any arcade and NOT cross paths with Street Fighter! Traveling around the world and taking on new opponents in martial arts fights… Street Fighter pits you against friends and makes you really show your skills. Seasoned players still feel the defeat of hearing “You did quite well, but you need more training to defeat me!” as they solemnly walk away from the game… defeated yet eager to return.
The moment you have all been waiting for, the final reveal of which video game would make number one on this list is here. You may be confused as to how Tetris made this list, so let’s explain:
When most non-gamers think about video games, they think that video games all mean blood and guts – but that’s not the case! Not every game has to have a huge, elaborate backstory, be riddled with side quests and big bosses, or be one of many games in a huge series. Tetris stands for the fundamentals of video games and we love it for its simplicity. While it might not be as exciting as some of the other games on or off this list, I think we can all agree that it’s timeless. This is a game that our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and more are going to be playing.
