It was released as a sequel to ‘A Link to the Past’ and surpassed all expectations.  The game is set on Koholint’s Island and Link has just one main goal- to wake up the sleeping Windfish and return home. The game became an instant classic with its great gameplay and dungeons.

#2. Mario Kart 64 (Nintendo-1996)


This was a go- kart racing game introduced during 1996. The game had all the video gamers hooked. One of the most memorable aspects of this game was the soundtrack which was composed by Kenta Nagata. Full of epic tricks such as turbo drifting or zipping through courses while dodging shells and walking bombs, the game gave us some of the best years of our life.

When Sonic 2 was released in 1992, it ramped up the speed of its former version which was released a year ago. It introduced a new spin dash move and a new sidekick- Tails. It turned out to be system defining game for Sega and went on to become its bestselling game. The loop-the-loops and corkscrews in the game along with multiple levels kept the players going and asking for more.
