Timeless Classics - Video Games that Will Never Get Old

What makes a game Timeless? Some games are classics simply by being pioneers in their genre, while others have gameplay that can entertain for ages. It's usually a great story that does it in my opinion (Zelda, Fallout, Final Fantasy), but sometimes even the gameplay is exciting and unique enough to remain impressive for decades.

Some of the old classic video games were great for their time period, while others are still good enough in our world of HD 1080p widescreen.

The only problem with older games is that the consoles can be hard to get a hold of. Gamers have been able to bypass this problem with computer emulators and downloadable ROMs, although this is considered piracy.  Maybe a friend has a ps2 or an emulator that can run your old game ;)


A fairly easy to play snowboarding game that can be quite a rush. It is still my favorite snowboarding game. Run a race with your friend for the bottom of the hill, or for most points for tricks.

Tony Hawk Series - Playstation and Xbox

With no better skating game to play on PC I often boot up Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4, run a game of Skate with some friends or try to nail a new high score.

Even Older Sports Games that Still Pack a Punch:

Blades of Steel - Nintendo

Mike Tyson Punch Out - Super Nintendo

Final Fantasy - Everyone has their favorite.

Most people love FFVII. I also like FFX quite a bit / just as much.
Final Fantasy is an anime themed, turn based RPG (role playing/strategy game) series.

Dungeons and Dragons Classics

Many say the fantasy gaming genre became popular with Dungeons and Dragons (the tabletop version). And many great D&D video games came out in the early days that were ahead of their time in terms of depth of content. Including Baldurs Gate and Neverwinter Nights, which I still love playing today. And The Dragon Age Series.

Bethesda: Elder Scrolls & Fallout

Everyone has their favorite Bethesda game. Some of the early ones like Morrowind and Fallout 3 are becoming classics.
