10. Pac-Man

  • Pac-Man:

This was a challenging game, but easy to play. You could just pick up and play and not have to worry about learning the rules or anything like that. It was fun, but challenging. It was a classic game! There were some simple rules that made it perfect for beginners because they didn’t have to worry about all of those complicated things other games had you memorize before you could even play them! Plus, there are so many different ways you can play this one from just playing around on your own trying to get as high of a score as possible – all the way up through multiplayer games with friends where everyone competes against each other for bragging rights over who has an amazing ability at controlling their character within this world!!

9. Custer’s Revenge

  • Custer’s Revenge

Custer’s Revenge is an Indian-themed adult video game released in 1982 by Mystique for the Atari 2600. It was one of the few games released on the system to use any sort of nudity and even had a rating label on every cartridge stating that it contained “Nudity”, something rare for games at the time. In this game, you play as General George Armstrong Custer (note: NOT his real name) who must save Private First Class Candy from a tribe of hostile Indians. You accomplish this goal by jumping over obstacles, which are represented by arrows pointing in different directions and occasionally running into trees or rocks that you can pass through if your timing is right. The controls consist of moving left/right and jumping up/down; there are no enemies to fight or powerups to collect along the way.

8. Space Invaders

Space Invaders

Space Invaders is a classic arcade game, released in 1978 by Taito in Japan. It was one of the first games to use a microprocessor, and it’s also known for being one of the earliest arcade games that used a joystick controller (instead of just buttons). This game is usually credited with helping popularize both controllers and high scores.

Space Invaders’ popularity led to many other similar titles being made: Galaxian, Galaga, Phoenix (a clone title), Cosmic Avenger (an unofficial sequel), Blasteroids (a PC-exclusive remake), etc. But because Space Invaders was so popular among players around the world it has remained iconic despite more recent competition like Pac Man or Tetris which have gained more mainstream recognition over time due to their widespread media presence during those years when nobody had heard about computers before everyone had them at home now thanks Microsoft Windows XP

7. Pong

Pong is the first commercially successful video game. It was developed by Nolan Bushnell and released in 1972 by Atari. Pong was a two-player game, with each player using a knob to move a paddle back and forth across the screen. The goal is to keep the ball in play as long as possible without letting it go into your opponent’s goal (the “net”). It was also one of the first games to use encouraging feedback like high scores and sound effects when you scored points or made an exciting play.

6. Dragon’s Lair

Dragon’s Lair is a legendary game from the illustrious years that put arcade games on the map. It was created in 1983 by animator Don Bluth and has been considered one of the best games ever since.

The game itself is fairly simple, but it takes an artistic approach to gaming that hasn’t been seen since—or perhaps before—Dragon’s Lair. The graphics are hand-drawn and animated like a cartoon, while still keeping their own unique style to them. Unlike many other games at this time period (such as Galaga or Donkey Kong), Dragon’s Lair doesn’t use any sprites or tiles; every single frame has been drawn by hand! This makes every scene look incredibly detailed instead of having simple shapes like most modern games have today (which isn’t necessarily bad).

The gameplay takes place in front of you on screen: You control Dirk (the main character) through his adventures inside Castle Blackthorn looking for Daphne (another character) who had been kidnapped by Mordroc (yet another). You move him around using two buttons: one for left/right movements and another for jumping/attacking enemies along with some others which perform special moves like shooting fireballs from your sword when pressed together!

5. Leisure Suit Larry

  • Leisure Suit Larry

In a world where games like Grand Theft Auto and Wolfenstein: The New Order are considered mature, it’s easy to forget how far we’ve come in the last decade. But before there were cringe-worthy sex scenes in games, there was Leisure Suit Larry. This Sierra On-Line series of point-and-click adventure games was an irreverent take on adult themes for its time (the first game premiered in 1987). And it can be argued that the developers were ahead of their time because later titles like Heavy Rain and Gone Home follow similar paths but with much more sophisticated execution. That said, these games have aged very well—especially considering they’re more than three decades old now!

4. Super Mario Brothers

You might be wondering why Super Mario Brothers is on this list. Well, there are a few reasons. First, it was released in 1985, making it one of the earliest games ever made (and still popular today). Second, it’s a platform game, which means that you control your character as they move through levels collecting items and defeating enemies by jumping on them (or shooting fireballs at them). And thirdly—and most importantly—it was developed by Nintendo! This company is responsible for some of our favorite games from childhood: The Legend of Zelda Series; Donkey Kong Country Series; Kirby Series; Pokemon Series…the list goes on!

3. Donkey Kong

2. Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)

The Super Nintendo was a 16-bit console that released in 1990 and went on to become the best selling video game console ever. It sold over 60 million units worldwide, which is more than twice as many as its predecessor, the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). The SNES had many innovative features, including being the first console to feature a CD-ROM drive and memory card slots.

1. Atari 2600 Gaming Console

The Atari 2600 is the most popular home gaming console of all time. It was launched in 1977, and it’s still widely popular today. The system has been credited as being the first to use ROM cartridges (instead of having a cartridge port that stores data), which means there are no moving parts inside the console itself. This means that it doesn’t wear down over time and can last up to 30 years without breaking!

The Atari 2600 had a built-in joystick controller (one of the first consoles to do so), but it also came with paddle controllers that were used for games like Pong and Breakout.

The game revolution is here to stay!

Games are here to stay. In fact, they’re more than just a passing fad—they’re an important part of our lives. They can be used as a form of entertainment, learning, exercise, relaxation and fun!

Entertainment: it’s no surprise that games are fun! That’s why so many people play them every day on their phones or computers. It’s the perfect way to relax after a stressful day at work or school when all you want is some time to yourself where you don’t have to think about anything else besides your favorite game. And if you like playing with others? Well then maybe teaming up with friends will be more exciting than playing alone! Learning opportunities are also abundant in video games such as The Legend Of Zelda series as well as other adventure games like Tomb Raider II where players learn about different cultures around the world through characters who live there (such as Lara Croft being from England).

Exercise: how does walking around Hyrule Field sound? You might not realize but running around could actually help improve your health by burning calories without even trying! All those enemies waiting for Link at every corner make him run faster just trying `to avoid them all which helps burn even more calories while having fun doing so too :)`
