Super Mario has been around before I was born. And probably the same for many gamers.  It was published back in 1985 and the most recent in 2019 (Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020) The feeling almost everyone experienced playing this game is I’m sure unforgettable. I remember I played Mario game most of the times when I was younger, and still, I love to play it again and again.

5) Final Fantasy VII:

It’s one of the games which is popular because it boosted the sales for the PlayStation Consoles. That being said, it’s die hard fanbase and increasing support in development make it a series everyone can keep up with. With a remake to Final Fantasy VII, expect better graphics, performance and overall approval of the series! It made the Japanese role-playing games famous outside the country, a huge development in the industry.

If you prefer games with mind-bending puzzles along with a portal shooting laser gun, then I would recommend Portal. The game is fantastic because it has humorous and dark moments, mixed with a deep interaction with the player and the game in it’s story and play. Many of the gamers are the true lovers of Portal.
