23. Goldeneye 007, N64 (1997) Nintendo/Rare (21 last year)
As guessed by nobody (I guess it wasn't too easy, Alec). Goldeneye 007 is the only non-Metroid-Prime first-person shooter on my list. Although it's primitive compared to those games that came after, it helped set the standard for console shooters with varied missions and multiplayer that made it endlessly replayable. Its simple soundtrack is also quite memorable.
