10 Classic Video Games That Have (And Will) Withstand The Test Of Time

As an aspiring video game journalist, I wanted to come up with something that would reflect that aspiration. Therefore, I bring you the list of my top 10 favorite video games:
Mario Kart 64
Mario Kart 64

10) “Mario Kart 64” – This game was known for ruining friendships. Of course you would make up later because, after all, it is only a game. At the end of the day, Mario Kart always had people coming back for more.

9) “Sonic and Knuckles” – Any of the Sonic games are worthy of this list. I picked “Sonic and Knuckles” because Knuckles is my favorite character from the series. I would spend hours playing Sonic on my Sega Genesis and never get bored.

8) “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3” – This game was exceedingly fun to play. I wanted to be like Tony Hawk. Unfortunately, that dream ended when I hit myself in the face with my skateboard. I may have given up on skateboarding, but I still play the game from time to time.

7) “Guitar Hero: Metallica” – Everyone either had a “Guitar Hero” game or has played “Guitar Hero” at some point in their life. Metallica is one of my all-time favorite bands and this game is one of the reasons I bought a real guitar. I didn’t just want to play their music on a game—I wanted to play it for real.

6) “Star Wars: Battlefront” – Anyone who has seen “Star Wars” wishes they could be in the fight. This game gave you that chance and it puts you on planets like Hoth and Endor. The only question that remains is: Will you save the galaxy or destroy it?

5) “Red Dead Redemption” – This western game has everything thing I like about the west. As a history nut, the whole cowboy and outlaw lifestyle always interested me. Would you rather be a cowboy or an outlaw? Make sure to choose wisely in this game.

4) “Infamous” – This game is based around making decisions while having superpowers. You can either be the savior or demon of Empire City. The choice is entirely yours.

3) “Battlefield 4” – The game has a short and remarkable campaign as well as complete customization of all weapons and vehicles. If that wasn’t enough, you can also completely destroy buildings in the game. What’s more fun than that?

2) “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3” – Multiplayer is quite enjoyable, but the campaign tells an amazing story. The campaign’s end is fulfilling and creates a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment to the player.

1) “Wolfenstein 3D” – This was the first FPS game I ever played. This game provided hours of fun while shooting Nazis and collecting treasure. It’s probably something you shouldn’t let a kid play, but it sure was fun. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
