10. Quake (1996)
In 1996 id Software released the first game of the Quake series and it was an instant success praised by both critics and players. It is a first-person shooter that will engage and entertain you. The player is the sole survivor who must stop the enemy at all costs– it won’t be easy, we won’t lie to you.
9. Worms (1995)
This artillery strategy video game is simple and fun. The players take turns into shooting off the others’ worms – only one survivor must remain standing. The worms have hilarious voices and catch phrases and they’re extremely funny. Choose your theme, your worms, your accent and start blowing each other up!
8. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998)
You are Link in this action-adventure video game, set off to stop Ganondorf from getting a hold of the Triforce, a relic that grants the wishes of the one who possesses it. You get to travel through time and improve your skills. You get to fight a lot of bad guys in this game, but also solve some really cool puzzles.
7. Half-Life (1998)
I remember spending most of my high school evenings playing this first-person video game. It took a lot of effort and brain power to navigate through the buildings, avoiding getting shot and managing to kill the opponents. The games that followed only got better and my passion and love for this game grew.
6. Mario Kart (1992)
This is not a simple car racing video game, it is quite complex, insanely fun and it features the world’s favorite plumber, Mario! Consider yourself lucky when the other drivers get struck by lightning or when a banana peel causes them to slow down so you could get ahead of them.
5. Doom (1993)
Just like Quake, Doom is a first-person shooter game developed by id Software. Unlike Quake, Doom will cause your heart to race and make you want to hide underneath your covers. It has Satanic elements and the entire atmosphere of the game is terrifying. Play if you dare!
4. Diablo (1996)
In this game you get to descend to the pits of Hell where all the monsters and demons lay. It is quite a trip you’ll take and it takes nerves of steel to be able to defeat Diablo. Diablo II deals with the demon that has possessed the hero who killed him. Fascinating stuff!
3. Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)
This is the first installment of the series – you are Sonic, a blue hedgehog who fights against the evil doctor Ivo Robotnik and tries to do everything he can from letting him take over the South Island. It is very entertaining and you’ll come to love Sonic and enjoy all the games that followed.
2. The Secret of Monkey Island (1990)
This point and click adventure game is filled with awesome puzzles and we here at www.10Awesome.com love puzzles. It is funny and engaging. We suggest you try it to see what we’re talking about and start playing right now.
1. Warcraft II: the Secret of Darkness (1995)
Warcraft II is a real-time strategy game that has changed the way strategy games are played. You have to work hard if you want to defeat your opponents, erect building and units, expand and build an army – you’ll have to invest some time in it if you want to be successful!
