A Year of Revolutionary Games!

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Thu Jan 01, 2015 12:14 am

Now, if you remember, I started the first half of 2014 doing "A Year of Nintendo Characters" where I would post about a different Nintendo character every day of the year. However, I used up many of the common characters right away, and it ended up just being annoying to update, and I ended up stopping halfway through the year. For 2015, I'll be doing A Year of Revolutionary Games, where I'll post about, well, revolutionary games! Games that changed the way you play, or set a standard for play. However, I won't be making it a rule that I have to update every day. I'll simply be updating it throughout the year whenever I feel like updating it, so I'm not pressured to do it every day. And with that...

Pac-Man



Pac-Man is a game released in 1980 for the arcades. Pac-Man is so revolutionary due to not only being incredibly innovative, but popularizing video games in general. The game's impact on the game industry was huge, and Pac-Man is now one of the most successful game frachises ever, continuing to be recreated and even with a few (horrible) new games being released.

Pac-Man was a great game and it's sad how Namco turned his games into trash now.

Star Fox



Star Fox for SNES is a space shooter where you play as Fox McCloud, along with other members of his Star Fox team. It makes use of the SNES Super FX chip, allowing for the illusion of 3D movement and, in turn, making it a revolutionary game. While not the first "3D" video game ever, it showed off more of what could be done with 3D games, and the Super FX chip, making the SNES more popular, and becoming a sales success.

Goldeneye 007



Goldeneye 007 is a first person shooter game for Nintendo 64. While first person shooter games existed before it, this revolutionized the genre, being pretty much the first on a home console, and giving a more realistic experience. While the genre might be overdone now, at the time this was certainly something different.

The good old days when only a few shooters where on the market and I can see how other games took things from Golden Eye.

^ Well, I'm trying not to use up all of the obvious ones right away, but because you ask...

Tetris



Tetris for the Game Boy is a puzzle game released in 1989, where you must rotate falling blocks of different shapes in order to match them in a line, making them disappear;they cannot reach the top of the screen or it's game over. Tetris is a revolutionary game, due to blowing out in popularity. It became the best selling Game Boy game (until Pokemon...) and the one bundled with the console, and was successful enough to be ported or have a new game for nearly every single device since it's release. It also popularized the puzzle genre, and was the first game released in the US from Russia.

Castlevania



Castlevania for the NES is a platformer where Simon Belmont must go through Dracula's Castle. It is revolutionary for the fact that it spawned TONS of sequels, and quickly became one of the most popular franchises of all time. It uses many types of weapons, not really seen much at the time.

Castlevania is kind of died down in recent years though the first game was a true masterpiece.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past



The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for SNES is the third installment in the adventure series, which follows Link's adventure to save the 7 sages and defeat Ganon. The reason I call it revolutionary is due to it's numerous additions that became commonplace in the series, as it is still one of the most popular game franchises of all time. These additions include the Master Sword, new items such as the Hook Shot, the change in the style of dungeons to now be puzzle-centric, and the addition of the Dark World. (although this to a lesser extent) It also became one of the best-selling SNES games, thus why many top-down adventure games have copied it's style.

Even though I have not played much of a Link to the Past I can see how other games took ideas from one of the best Zelda games.

Well I need to get back into updating this more than I do currently. Razz

February 16th, 2015 -

Crash Bandicoot



Now I won't be the first to admit that Crash Bandicoot, by today's standards, is kind of...well, to put it bluntly, terrible. Razz However, at the time of release, it was revolutionary. It was among the very first fully 3D titles. You could actually make use of full 3D movement, and this is of course something a majority of games have today. While it wouldn't give you full exploration and was very linear, as one of they very first attempts at 3D games, it was really something different.

Hope to see those.
