You have probably already noted that I used the term “all time” but we are all well aware that as much as video games are concerned, it is not that long time. Of course comparing the limited 8-bit side-scrolled to a gleaming HD world may pose a challenge.
These and many other challenges in putting these games together are acknowledged but the underlying factor is the impact that the game had to its pre-determined recipients.
Video games have quite a rich history just within a limited period of time. Various landmarks and breakthroughs have been achieved in the video games industry. Those prototypal games whose influence continues to loom over contemporary mechanics and design—are the shoulders on which every modern developer sits, forever stretching up to something new. In short, video games get better as the day passes.
Worms Armageddon (1999)
The feeling of helplessness is the one that Worms Armageddon inspires. That sensation that you can actually do nothing especially after your friend has locked you in the sight of a bazooka. There are death matches in which the chances of you shooting your enemy are the same as the possibilities f you turning the gun to yourself, although the engineering has been done in such a way that any blame will be solely due to your own mistakes. It was a fun and maddening game.
Phantasy Star IV (1995)
Phantasy has its own fair share of fans many of whom immediately started playing when the series was made available. The fifth release in the series, The End of the Millennium was equally received with open arms.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (2005)
A single word “objection” is used in the derivation of the genius of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. It is clearly a video game apart, beloved as much for its formal audacity as for it’s almost novelistic density as a work of detective fiction. Gather clues. Build a case. And prepare for a culminating moment of glory: a chance to yell “Objection!”
Wild Arms (1996)
Developers of the old PlayStation days seemed reckless in making gambles but that led to the development of brilliant titles such as Wild Arms. Western themes and science-fiction machinations were combined by this video game.
Pokémon Gold and Silver (2000)
Pokémon Gold and Silver came up with advancements that were superior to their predecessors in many ways. The real-time clock system, which allowed for certain Pokémon to make their appearances at specific hours of the day, was a landmark element that had gamers waking up in the dead of the night to acquire rare critters.
