7 Games of the 90s That Have Aged Well

From Cinelinx:

The 90s proved to be a pivotal decade for video games, and one that has defined the industry ever since. The 90s saw the advent of 3D visuals in gaming, the rise of a new gaming superpower and the decline of another. As technology increased, the advances in gameplay made radical changes that would shape the way we played games in the years to come. These games have the staying power to still survive and be fun even by today's standards. (Retro)

"Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (1997)"

What a masterpiece. The soundtrack, the main character, the whole castle everything. Metroidvania all the way.

Any game NOT going for realism still looks good today mostly.

Super Mario World, in terms of Art Style, and for what it is, is a much better looking game than 80% of what is released today, in any genre.

is this a joke, no diablo 2 or Warcraft 3, starcraft was garbage in the 90's and is garbage now The frozen throne has always been more fun. Diablo 2 is still golden

I agree crash and spyro have actually aged pretty well graphics wise and especially gameplay wise.

MGS? really? dont get me wrong i love that game one of my all time favorites but it looks terrible now and the controls are frustrating after playing the other mgs games

Have to say I agree.

MGS looks quite horrendous as do most PSX games these days. Sadly, they don't age well at all.

Sprite based games on the other hand like Zelda, Mario and Street Fighter 2 are pretty much timeless.

I would not say the 90's was a video revival rather a continuation from the 80's
The major enhances in gaming came from 3DFX and their 3D graphics and the internet/online gaming.
Starcraft wasn't a new genre rather the effect of more computing power, Cystron Masters was the 1st RTS (1982) and Dune II was the game that brought the RTS back in the limelight.
Other than the RTS genre the other that stands out for me is the fps and while there were a number of fps games throughout the 80's (i.e. Capture the Flag 1983) the 90's took it t a whole new level from Wolfenstein 3D to UT99, Q3a, Doom etc and really haven't that much changed since.
