Favorite Video Games Per Decade

in #atari6 years ago (edited)

This video shows the history, the video game evolution over the years, especially after the second world war in the 1940's to the end of the USA Vietnam war, in the early 1970's, three decades later, as Atari rose. Here is my list for favorite video games per decade from the 1970's to the 2010's, currently, meaning my favorite five video games of all time, one game per decade excluding anything that may or may not have been around before the 1970's and my list excludes anything that may come in the future as it is the first of October 2017, right now. What are your favorites? I'm Joey Arnold, Original Oatmeal of Oregon.

1970: Ping Pong: 1972: Syzgy: Atari: my favorite game from the the 1970's decade might be this tennis game but since I was born in 1985, I didn't play it until 1995 or so when we got this or something like this game.

1980: Mario Bros: Nintendo Entertainment System (NES): 1985: I was born 1985: we played Mario at Mike & Kyle Vanderzanden's house, our neighbors: was hooked to Mario since I was a baby.

1990: Sim City: Super Nintendo: 1991: first saw cousin Nathan Williams play it around 1994: got it Christmas 1996: was hooked on it many times to 2004 or so: loved the ability to build, design, customize.

2000: Paper Mario 64: Nintendo 64: 2000: my dad gave it to me for my 16th birthday in 2001: love role playing games (RPG) because it is very educational and also very focused on story telling.

2010: Metal Gear games: Matt Kurtz: was mostly introduced to them in 2011 when we made Metal Gear Joey, a parody video on it: one of my favorites is the Metal Gear Solid 3, Snake Eater, and I'm choosing this as my favorite game of the 2010-2019 ten year decade. Other games included Dead Space, Mario, phone games, the fat princess game, Risk.

Loving these gaming posts. I'd like to add a few that I thought were outstanding when I was growing up (mid 90s to mid 00s)

Spyro The Dragon 1, 2 and 3
Metal Gear Solid (I know you've posted 4 and 5, but I think the first one was incredible)
Streets of Rage 2
Sonic Spinball (Not many people liked it, but I thought it was a very underrated game)
Street Fighter 2 (Ryu doing his best Yorkshire impression saying 'How do, Ken?')
Championship Manager 03/04
Theme Hospital
Gran Turismo 3
GTA San Andreas (Grove Street, home...At least it as before I besmirched everything up...)
Fifa 97 (INDOOR 6-A-SIDE MODE!!!! Why did they get rid of that?)
WWE Smackdown 2: Know Your Role (I recently bought a wrestling game and the gameplay absolutely sucked. It also had limited game options you could do unlike the old wrestling games which made them fun...)

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I've just recently completed Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag and would definitely recommend that game if you haven't already played it...
