Best Video Games of 1996


The Top Ten

1 Super Mario 64

Super Mario in real life. SPAGHETTI!

2 Mortal Kombat Trilogy

Everything is great except the loading times it takes like 10 or 15 sec before the battle start

It was like "Greatest Hits" of first 3 mk games - Magnolia

3 Tomb Raider

Without a doubt I love Mario 64 same with this

Tomb Raider in my opinion was a very good game, with lots to explore (main point of the game), the animation was good, and I was always puzzled with what to do, but when I figured out what to do it made much more sense.

4 Pokemon Red/Blue

I love Pokemon and the first two games were defiantly some of the best ever

5 Crash Bandicoot

My first PlayStation game. Awesome graphics for its time. Simple but challenging.

Haha it's beating super Mario 64 in my opinion it goes (in terms of 3d crash and 3d Mario adventure games)
11. Crash: Mind Over Mutant
10. Crash of the Titans
9. Crash Bandicoot
8. Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex
7. Super Mario Sunshine
6. Super Mario Galaxy 2
5. Super Mario 64
4. Super Mario Galaxy
3. Crash Twinsanity

6 Resident Evil

The beginning of great series. Chris and Jill were superb - Magnolia

7 Diablo
8 Duke Nukem 3D
9 Final Doom
10 Tekken 2

The Contenders

. Crazy replay for the time.

12 Virtua Fighter 3
13 Super Mario RPG
14 Command & Conquer: Red Alert
