Most Revolutionary Video Games Ever Made

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 the greatest franchise in the world...

2 Super Mario 64

One of the first 3D games. Every single 3D game can be traced back to this game... pretty much, that is. This game 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 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

This game crafted action-adventure gameplay into the 3D gaming world, and introduced so many things 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 has built upon its gameplay.

It is the most revolutionary game of all time. Only 5 games can stand up to it in terms of game quality. They are ALTTP, MM, WW, TP, and SS.

4 Spacewar (1962)

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

The Beatles must've played this back in the day.

5 Goldeneye 007

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

6 The Legend of Zelda

This game brought fourth the Adventure Game Genre, and basically defined it. it paved the road for every single one of the Zelda games that came after it, and so many games use what was introduced in this game, that some people might not even REALIZE it!

7 Street Fighter

Defined the gameplay o most fighting games. Every Fighting game that follows a similar formula has built upon the gameplay of Street Fighter.

8 Pong
9 Wii Sports
10 I, Robot (1983)
The Contenders

Not only did F-Zero set the stage and pave the road for futuristic racing games, but F-Zero did the EXACT same thing for ALL racing games!
