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.

"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.

What wasn't great about the 90s?

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

Neither Warcraft 3 or Diablo 2 were 90s games. Those came out in the 00s (

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.
