The financial minds at Forbes have taken off their big business hats for a moment to focus on a more pressing topic: classic video games. Which of today’s titles will become immortalised in our hearts, marble statue-ised into our next Super Mario Bros 3s that we can’t put down a decade later? Well, they’ve compiled a list of their top ten and it’s…actually not that bad. And of course, Mario has made an appearance.
Portal Brain Age 2 Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass BioShock Puzzle Quest Rock Band Super Mario Galaxy Wii Sports The Witcher WoW: Burning Crusade
Needless to say, a fiery debate will rage in the comments and give this list a good sorting. I’m actually not so sure about BioShock, of all choices, as single player FPS experiences don’t seem to stand the test of time (meanwhile, multiplayer is a whole different story).
And now that the industry has become so successful at creating high quality, more polished sequels, will any of these titles really be in play a decade from now?
