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 Ten

1 Mario 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...

2 The 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!

3 MegaMan

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

Megaman can't be dropped or cut off by a rollin cutta

4 Metroid
5 Pac-Man
6 Kirby

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.

7 Donkey Kong

Donkey kong country for the win!

8 Street Fighter
9 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic 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

10 Pokemon

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.

Pokemon is the best franchise,
gain 1: it is even more better than final fantasy
gain 2: this franchise have no traps but no problems
gain 3: pokemon black and white
gain 4: you can use no only one, six pokemons
gain 5: red from the franchise is my favorite pokemon human character
gain 6: pokemon is the 1ST coolest video game franchise
gain 7: what make the franchise more... better? I guess all the pokemon. even the legendaries.

The Contenders

11 Bomberman
12 Mortal Kombat
13 Grand Theft Auto
14 Cave Story
15 Halo
16 Castlevania
17 Tetris
18 Tomb Raider
19 Tekken
20 Super Mario 64
21 Super Smash Bros.
22 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
23 Mario Kart 64
24 Call of Duty
25 The King of Fighters

While it does take forever for a new installment to be released (due to the asine number of remakes and rereleases SNK likes to make) It's a great franchise that's still around and is much better than Street Fighter! - kfcnyancat

26 Kid Icarus

Kid Icarus Uprising was hilarious.
