Most Influential Video Games

Super Mario 64 (N64, 1996)

Mario made the jump to 3-D in this delightful gem that Nintendo smartly released alongside its N64 console. Gamers explored the Mushroom Kingdom like never before, taking leisurely strolls around the castle, sailing through air and fighting Bowser's minions across multiple worlds. Not only is this a sweet game, but it defined the 3-D platform experience, influencing numerous designers to create their own, original offerings.

    You forgot the very first game that came out in 1956 or somewhere around there that is the alltime most influential game since if it never appeared most games wouldnt be around atm.

    What about the Gran Tourismo line? Or the Need for Speed line, the first to really offer "illegal street racing?"
