Classic games hold a special place in gaming history and continue to be enjoyed by players even after many years since their release. They may have set new standards or introduced groundbreaking features that have shaped the industry as we know it today.

While the specific criteria for what qualifies as a "classic" game can vary from person to person, some common characteristics include:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Released in 1998, this game has become a landmark entry in the action-adventure genre. Its immersive world, memorable characters, and innovative gameplay mechanics have earned it critical acclaim and a place among gaming's all-time greats.
  • Half-Life This first-person shooter released in 1998 not only pushed the boundaries of storytelling within the genre but also revolutionized game design with its seamless gameplay and immersive narrative experience. Its impact on subsequent FPS games cannot be overstated.
