#8: Super Mario 64 (1996)
Last Year: 7

Not only is Super Mario 64 a revolution in the world of video games, it's one of the most fun and imaginative games as well. The game was a wonder to play when it first came out in 1996, due to its incredible 3D graphics and 3D control via the analogue stick. But even today (well, the graphics aren't what they used to be... but still suffice) the game stands tall due to its fantastic worlds and ever changing gameplay mechanics. Super Mario 64 certainly encouraged exploration, something that was quite odd for a Mario game, but it never lost the magical focus that made the Super Mario series so incredible from the beginning. In the end, Super Mario 64 stands tall not just for being a revolution in gaming, but also for being another incredible game in general.
