Video Games That Rocked Their First Releases


Over the years video games have grown to become one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the world. While new games are released every year, there are some games that have managed to stick with us. Keeping this in mind, there are video games that have spawned franchises solely due to the immense success of the first game. We’re not saying that other games in these franchises are not good, but just that they will never be as good as the first one. So here are our picks.

1. Space Invaders

Iconic in every way, Pac-Man was one of the few games that managed to impact the gaming industry in a big way. There was a moment in time when the majority of the gaming industry rested on this game. But while other games like Pac-In-Time and Pac-Man World were released successfully none of them could match the success of the original.

3. Sonic The Hedgehog
