OK I want this!
If you are a child of the 90’s this will be an interesting flashback.
When you think of the ’90s, you can’t think of it without these 10 Most Influential Video Games. They have created a lot of inspiration and ideas for the games we play today. Ranging from their unique story lines, strategic abilities, and replay value, these titles deserve credit where credit is due. Without wasting any more time, let’s take a look at the 10 Most Influential Video Games From the ’90s.
This is a remastered screenshot from the video game Super Metroid. Released in 1994 Super Metroid featured an open world where bounty hunter Samas Aran must defeat Mother Brain to keep the galaxy safe from improper use of Metroids. There are also space pirates there looking to use Metroids to gain power. I think that is right.
Do you remember the Intellivision by Mattel? Next to Pong this was the first video game system in my house when I was growing up. You really cannot even compare these older systems to what we have today. These were the first to bring the arcade home. This was a time when the family and friends would gather to play these games for hours on end. Even these poor graphics would not stop me from spending afternoons from playing games like Burger Time or Pitfall.
If you are one of the lucky ones that remember this then you must know what PlayCable is? Yup! We had that too. What was almost light years before any cable internet service or any internet service for that matter, this add-on box would give you 50 games a month though your cable provider.
Awesome memories of a time when you could put fake wood grain on electronics because it was cool.

Forty years. That’s a long time in the tech industry and Atari knows it. Today it celebrates four decades in the game, and quite the tale it is. Highs, lows and everything in between, Atari has been there. As one of the most influential brands both in gaming and technology, it only seems right to take a look over the company’s history and chart some of the more significant twists in its less than straightforward journey. After the break we speak to the man that started it all and the one currently at the helm, as well as some of the many people whose lives were irreversibly changed by its influence. Happy birthday to you, Atari!
