Video gaming has changed over the years. Which Video Games had the biggest impact on these changes? These did!
The Top Ten
1 Super Mario Bros.

This game not only brought forth one of the greatest gaming franchises of all time, as well as the best-selling gaming franchise of all time, but it single-handedly saved the video gaming industry. Without this video game, video gaming would no longer exist!

Dude, this game brought us the greatest franchise in the world.

2 Super Mario 64

One of the first 3D games, Super Mario 64 is seminal in the history of video gaming. Every single 3D game can trace its roots back to this game, pretty much. It defined the design of the Nintendo 64's controller and paved the road for all of 3D gaming.

Games like Final Fantasy VII and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time wouldn't quite be the same without the existence of Super Mario 64.

The first real 3D game, and also the first game for me to be just fun and nothing else.

3 Spacewar (1962)

This went on to be noticed as the very first video game made on any computer.

The Beatles must have played this back in the day.

4 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

This game crafted action-adventure gameplay into the 3D gaming world and introduced so many elements into the gaming universe that most good games would be bland without it. It also paved the road for the rest of the 3D Zelda titles, all of which have built upon its gameplay.

It is the most revolutionary game of all time. Only five games can stand up to it in terms of game quality. They are ALTTP, MM, WW, TP, and SS.

5 Pong
6 Goldeneye 007

This game popularized the first-person shooter genre, and without this game, Call of Duty and Halo would practically be nothing!

7 The Legend of Zelda
