Six decades of video games are explored in "50 Must-Play Games," spanning from the late seventies to the beginning of this new decade. From the most rudimentary and well-known titles like Space Invaders and Super Mario Bros., which introduced the absolute foundational elements of the medium, to lesser-known gems of today like Impossible Mission and Hacker. From cathartic classics like Doom and Street Fighter II, where players can let loose, to games that demand tactical insight, such as Civilization and StarCraft. From blockbuster experiences like Halo 3 to narrative-driven games like Mass Effect 2. And from smaller gems like Limbo to the immersive interactive worlds of games like Red Dead Redemption II.
Time-honored classics, which won't come as a surprise in a collection of fifty top-notch titles, are interspersed here and there with the author's idiosyncratic choices. With forty years of gaming experience and a quarter-century of journalism dedicated to the medium, the author provides insights into each game and details on how and on which platforms they can still be played today. This applies even to the older games in the selection, all of which originally debuted on consoles that have long since been relegated to the museum. For those older games, another crucial criterion in the selection was whether they are still playable today. To ensure this, the author played each one again before including them in this book.
