I’m not saying this list is final or complete by any means. However in 31 years, I’ve played a lot of games. Some have come and gone. Others have persisted. This is a list of the latter or some of the games that have been so good that sequels have been spawned.
This list covers multiple consoles as well as PC gaming.
Excluded from this list (and none of them would have made the list anyways) are iOS games. Most of these are short-term titles (IE: Clash of Clans).
