Top Ten Classic Video Games Series That Are Still Around

This list is to find out which of the classics that still shine through are the best.

The Top TenXW

1Mario Bros.

Mario is a very entertaining game series at times, and will still remain as one of my favorite video game series. Who knew that a game series that mostly involved platformer game elements would because both successful and enjoyable?

A bunch of Italian Plumbers who kept us amused for hours by jumping on top of things and into pipes and collecting money. This is the game of many a childhood.

Mario isn't number one?! Mario is the world's most well known video game character and he deserves number one on this list!

Mario has been around for 31 years... And counting...

2The Legend of Zelda

I am a long time fan of Legend of Zelda, so I voted for this one

I especially like Ocarina of Time. - llamabaconllama37

Played it since a link to the past

Going strong since '86!


I'm a long time fan of megaman, so I had to put him on top. - llamabaconllama37

6Donkey Kong

Donkey kong country for the win!


Too epic.
You are basically a pink puff-ball that goes around sucking things up and gains super powers. And in the super smash bros series, he is unbeatable when he teams with meta knight.

8Street Fighter
9Sonic the HedgehogSonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Sonic is still one of my favorite video games of all times. - Chaotixhero


Best game in my opion, it is the best. My brother used to collect the games and the cards. I still collect the cards and games too.

Pokémon has been around longer than any of these series, except Zelda and Mario. It has 6 generations with over 700 Pokémon. It has different ones across the journey. And it's not like Pikmin where the creatures are in just different colors.
