Since I’ve already had people sending me angry messages to reiterate what we say *in the video* we’re reading from a list and some stuff has been cut for time. If we didn’t mention your favourite video game and are mad enough about to to want to send me a pissy dm. Consider not doing that and getting a fucking life instead.

I think that the reason Mortal Kombat is so recognizable to people outside of gaming is the controversy that surrounded it when it came out. I remember it being a hot button topic on talk shows, the news and in the political environment for it's "graphic violence" and "blood and gore". For this reason, people who had never played a video game before suddenly knew the name Mortal Kombat, but also saw it as the face of violent video games.

I firmly believe that video games could completely replace school and do a much better job of teaching people all the same things in a way that kids actually like/give 2 shits about. HEAR ME OUT! History.. okay I hated history I never seen a point in learning about what some old bastards did 300 years ago. Now make a 100% historically accurate version of Assassin's Creed game about the course you are trying to teach and in some very cleaver ways to make it fun while the plot still being accurate. Tell me I'd still hate history... Don't worry, I'll wait...

I was actually going to say Doom Eternal, as the game being most GAME than anything else, but I think you're actually right about Tetris, Pong and Space Invaders, being that simple and intuitive make them the best way to make someone play, followed right after by Super Mario Bros. But I'll keep my idea about Doom Eternal (or doom in general)

You missed goldeneye and perfect dark, both of which really made me appreciate just how good the first Halo and Gears of War really were at the time. Also other than Ocarina, the Star Wars KotOR games are still played 20 years later. Also I didn’t like them as a kid but all the Mario Party/fusion Frenzy etc type games I really appreciate now because the mini game aspect allowed them to be amalgams of modified versions of all the classic games like Tetris and pong and so forth. Unfortunately the gaming industry went the way of monthly pay and / or micro transaction and all the games now are just cash grabs instead of actual graphic design artists really being allowed to be creative and innovative, the industry has really just been stagnant the last few years and it’s sad. Especially considering the advancements in technology haven’t stopped but we’re still getting the same caliber games we were getting 10 15 years ago just with better graphics. Final thought Chrono Trigger is I still think one of the best most epic story lines of any game ever and yes 25 years later I would definitely give it what has to be my 10th or so play through.

I think there is a lot of important games that was missing, but it is understandable - it is still almost 20 minutes video. Maybe you should do part two? I think that other important videogames would be Tomb Raider, Half Life, Mass Effect, Need for Speed Most Wanted, The SIms, GTA San Andreas. From most recent games, I would say that Witcher 3 and GTA V will be remembered for a long time. But my answer to "the gratest video game of all time" would be Minecraft. It is also very simple game. Even if you are not a gamer at all - you heard about it. And it is still popular. I think it will be just like Tetris.

Tetris is a strong choice. But I still would pick pacman over it. Also holy shit, 1998 was insanly good.
CRGaming پیش ماه
I can see why you might make that choice, but not a lot of people still play pacman. Tetris, on the other hand, depending on how you count it, is the best-selling video game of all time with somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 million copies sold. Just the EA re-skin released in 2006 has sold over 100 million copies. For comparison, the PS2 (the #1 selling console) sold just over 155 million and was released in 2000 and Minecraft, the next best-selling game is somewhere in the realm of 200 million. Pacman is iconic, no doubt, but tetris is THE game.

Pokémon silver easily beats Tetris or any other game. 100+ hour campaign with a post game that is just the entire previous game. Nearly endless replay ability and challenge run capabilities, not to mention MP battles and trading. Add the 251 monsters you can grind to level 100 Iv’s, their shiny counterparts and the fact there is a remaster to pick up after completing the OG.

It's so hard for modern games to feel like they will last for a long time because gameplay will not be the most important thing to the developer. Atari age and original NES games were limited in performance so they HAD to focus on keeping the player interested with great gameplay.
