Top 10 Retro Games

This is going to be one of my favorite top 10. I think everybody was playing some of this vintage games. This is my favorite top 10, so don't be angry if you have different opinion. Lets begin

1.Super Mario Bros. 3
Initial release date: October 23, 1988

In Super Mario Bros. 3, Bowser has become a father. His seven children, the Koopa Kids, have invaded the lands neighboring the Mushroom Kingdom &#Array; attacking their castles and casting spells on their kings (who have been transformed into animals). It's up to Mario and Luigi to travel through these worlds, teach the Koopas a lesson, and reclaim the magic wands that have the power to reverse the transformation curse.

2.Duck Hunt
Initial release date: April 21, 1984

What's not to love with this game? It's a basic light gun game with just the right amount of everything to make it sweet. You get ducks, dog rustles up ducks, and you shoot them. You don't need anything flashy for this as it's basic premise is what actually gets you involved. The later levels with quicker ducks can drive you nutty with the limits of misses that you get. You can have a slower but easier time with one duck or up the challenge with two.

3.Cadillacs and Dinosaurs
Initial release date: April 1993

So, the heroes are generic. No big deal. The game has really nice graphics, a nice balance of difficulty, and manages to mix up the enemies and environments enough so that you don't feel like you are dragging through too many tedious stretches. It is very liberal with the supply of both food and weapons, and handles gun weapons better than any other brawler I've seen (you can move while firing with weapons like the Uzi and submachine gun.)

Complementing the action is a pretty bangin' score by Yoko Shimomura, apparently just before she fled Capcom for the greener pastures of Squaresoft. Sound effects are solid on the whole, and the Engrishy exhortations of the main characters provide solid comic amusement along the way.

4.Ms Pac-Man
Initial release date: 1981

Ms. Pac-Man is here to drive you totally wild and crazy with more fun than you've ever imagined! Four feisty ghosts are chasing MS. PAC-MAN. Use your skill and strategy to rack up points while outrunning the gobbling ghosts. Grab an energy pill, and score even more points. Now gobble up all those fearless ghosts!

5.Sensible Soccer
Initial release date: 1994

For a certain generation, football rivalry wasn’t just between Fifa and Pro Evo. It was the pace and banana shots of Kick Off versus the sharp passing game of Sensible Soccer. For our money, Sensi wins: it gave a glimpse at tiki-taka way before Barca made it fashionable.

Initial release date: June 30, 1986

Brought to us in 1986 by the legendary Yu Suzuki and SEGA-AM2, Out Run still stands as one of SEGA’s most famous arcade titles. For years, many ports have been released, with the closest to being “arcade perfect” being the SEGA Saturn’s SEGA Ages version, complete with the Ferrari Testarossa and all.

Thankfully, our pals at M2 have been going buck wild and porting all of SEGA’s classic arcade titles to the Nintendo 3DS, each one arguably better than the last. That brings us to M2’s latest release – 3D Out Run, and it can be yours for a measly $6, roughly the price as a McDonald’s value meal.


The first playable version was completed on June 6, 1984,while he was working for the Dorodnitsyn Computing Centre of the Academy of Science of the Soviet Union in Moscow. He derived its name from the Greek numerical prefix tetra- (all of the game's pieces contain four segments) and tennis, Pajitnov's favorite sport.

Tetris was the first entertainment software to be exported from the Soviet Union to the United States, where it was published by Spectrum HoloByte for the Commodore 64 and the IBM PC. Tetris is a popular use of tetrominoes, the four-element special case of polyominoes. Polyominoes have been used in popular puzzles since at least 1907, and the name was given by the mathematician Solomon W. Golomb in 1953.

8.Street Fighter II Turbo
Initial release date: February 1991

Ranging from casual folks to the most experienced, hardcore gamers, Street Fighter fans have long supported the now 20-year-old (and counting) franchise. While I'm sure a good number of the community's members are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Street Fighter IV, many eyes are turning to the upcoming Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, a retuned version of Super Street Fighter II Turbo and a downloadable release on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.

9.Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Initial release date: November 21, 1992

So for the last few days I've been stuck on one game from my past that I can't seem to put down and that game is Sonic The Hedgehog 2. In a lot of people's opinions it is probably the best 2D Sonic game around and it shows as Sonic 2 was the best selling game on the Genesis. Six million copies of the game have been sold since it was released on the Genesis and back in the 90s that was pretty good for a game. Today that legacy is still held up as the game has also seen numerous releases on other consoles, but in my review I'll be talking about the Genesis version only. Now as with my other reviews, I'll break the review down in four categories: story, graphics, sound, and game play and control. Let's start with the most basic of any game, the story.

10.Donkey Kong
Initial release date: July 9, 1981

The game that launched the career of a certain plumber, Nintendo’s 1981 arcade hit was pivotal. Having failed to crack the US, president Hiroshi Yamauchi convinced young designer Shigeru Miyamoto to create a new game. Jumpman (renamed Mario, after the US arm’s landlord, for the game’s Stateside launch) and his simian nemesis gobbled enough quarters to keep Nintendo afloat and launch countless Kong spinoffs (pictured). The rest’s history.
