5.) Halo 3 (2007)
Why: The Halo series is unique. Gathered friends to blast each other in epic space combat. Halo 3 is perhaps the best of the series when it comes to glorified multiplayer, with a dramatic story with no shortage of opera music tracks and tough character customization. Many titles are still trying to replicate what Halo did and they just can’t be matched.
4.) Minecraft (2011)
Why: Minecraft is one of the best-selling video games of all time, so you’d have to live under a rock as a gamer to never run into it. You can basically create your own world and do whatever you want. If you think about it, you can create it. The great thing about Minecraft is that it is offered on almost all platforms, including smartphones. This game is good to let your mind wander and become an artist.
3.) Super Mario 64 (1996)
Why: Mario is one of the best-known titles, but anyone can tell you that it could be the best game in the franchise. The game is unlike any of its predecessors because it was the first 3D platformer in the series. It’s a bigger world than the previous ones and the extra moves and jumps Mario can do make the game faster and more exciting. There are a total of 120 stars and the game has a lot of replay value. Mario platformer games are still being made today and none of them still can’t come close to how good this game was.
2.) Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998)
Why: Everyone has their favorite Zelda game, but Ocarina of Time includes the best features from the glorified series. There is a huge world that you have the freedom to explore, a magnificent score, and a truly remarkable origin story. The dungeons aren’t too challenging, but intricate enough that you don’t get too mad when you can’t solve a puzzle.
1.) Pokémon X and Y (2013)
Why: If you are a child or an adult, with this franchise that never seemed to matter. Pokémon revolutionized what it meant to bring characters like Pikachu to life. They modernized the portable multiplayer game and made it what it is today. X and Y is one of the newer titles, which is great because the game never stops using the old characters that adults grew up with.
