While the graphics have never been particularly impressive – white line drawings on a black screen – Asteroids gives you that rare chance to feel like you control the universe. Use the space bar on your computer to fire off missiles at invading, out of control asteroids, and save your ship, and the planet, from destruction!
Mario the plumber and his twin brother Luigi have been reincarnated many times since their first video game appearance, and every single one is a classic.

The ultimate bar/pizza parlor video game is, of course, one of the most basic. With just a few coins and a grasp on the joystick, Pacman can provide hours of fun as your eat your way through the different levels.
