Top Ten Video Games Ahead of Their Time

The Top Ten

1 Heavyweight Champ (1976)
2 Space Harrier
3 Virtua Fighter

For console standards, this was ahead of its time, but if this was instead an arcade game it would've looked a bit crap even for the time.

5 Phantasy Star
6 Final Fantasy
7 Virtua Racing
8 Turbo (1981)
9 I, Robot
10 Super Mario 64

The Contenders

11 Pong
12 Star Fox 64

It did introduce the rumble feature after all and is a worthy successor to the SNES original.

13 Hannah Montana: Spotlight World Tour
14 Scud Race

It's hardware took a dump on popular consoles at the time.

15 Daytona USA
16 GoldenEye 007

With a great variety of weapons, it was ahead of its time as a fps.

17 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

In every way, probably. Z-targeting has become a staple.

18 Donkey Kong Country

For a SNES game this is absolutely mind blowing. - Entranced98
