What older video game is so good that people may still be playing it 100 years from now?

Research shows that binging tetris after a traumatic event massively reduces PTSD symptoms going forward.

I almost thought this was a joke but then I looked it up. Holy crap that's great

That shit is instinctual and near universal. I think even if Alexi Pajitnov hadn't created it, someone else would've. It's almost like it's a human mind hack that was discovered, rather than a video game that was invented.


karma_dumpster

The only correct answer, along with maybe Solitaire / Minesweeper.


meltedlaundry

I mean if we're including Solitaire, might as well throw in chess, checkers, poker, slot machines, etc.


Jacobdr4

I think if people knew how to play minesweeper there would be a lot more people who play. I do it when I'm listening to a podcast or YouTube video and just sitting around the house. Fun to just try and beat your best time, although I'm kind of stuck at 72 seconds.


throwaway062921om

Some would say that we have been playing minesweeper for over 100 years already.


speedcubera

The Motherland commends you!


amanon101

GTA 5. Not because it’s good, but because that’s how long it will take for 6 to come out


Thakog

I think you spelled Skyrim wrong.


amanon101

Well, at least we got a trailer for TES6 lmao


theglazedonut

Its just new assets for ultra new and improved skyrim


warmaster_whorus

Skyrim came out 11/11/11 I bet elder 6 will be 02/02/22


GhostArtistYT

Nah, 2/22/22, on a Tuesday. It would be a *Twos*day.


Homeless_Quality

Yeah, but the year will be 2222.

Mario Kart, I mean the game is not that great but it’s just overall well known and stays fun to play with people, the concept is simple and timeless.


TheRedditGirl15

Not that great? Someone has clearly not played Mario Kart Wii


Rum-Ham159

Chrono Trigger continues to age beautifully.


kingbane2

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmzrwjaFNp0 that soundtrack is something else. hearing any of the songs stills evokes emotions in me. this one just makes me want to head out on an adventure and be brave.


goblin_goblin

I still consider this the best RPG of all time and I've played a ton of RPGs since then. My only gripe are the clearly incomplete segments of the game.


Rum-Ham159

Should never be “remade” but needs to be more available.

I feel like a lot of people in this thread dont realize how long a hundred years are... I doubt we'd even remember 99% of the games mentioned in this thread in a hundred years.

diablollama

Is this still true for most people? I was so excited to play this last year on the Mario collection, and it just didn't age well. I couldn't finish it.


VaccuumLawyer

Its mainly the speedrunning community keeping it alive


big_nothing_burger

For real...the 3D camera in that game is a nightmare to go back to. I tried and quit early.


redneckhippynerd

Half Life 2 Deus Ex Super Mario World Mario Kart The Sims


wighty

>Half Life 2 I actually think Portal is more likely. If you look back on HL2 today there isn't anything particularly special about it, even though at the time it was groundbreaking. Portal has unique gameplay in addition to it being well written/humorous.


redneckhippynerd

I dunno man, HL2 is tied for being the best reviewed PC game of all time. I think that the characters, story, and design of the levels are why it still holds up. The gameplay wouldn’t be groundbreaking today, it isn’t why I think HL2 is memorable.

minesweeper. Tetris. A lot of the very simple, logic based games.


Taractis

Doom, the original. By then, people will have done so much to the source code that it could be turned into any genre.


RevolutionaryPlane62

Minecraft, definetly the most timeless game, everybody enjoys it. It is and will always be a nostalgic classic. And yes, it was made in 2009, i consider that “older”


bionicback

Myst. As one of the first groundbreaking games I played as a kid, it’s still good!


NewRomanian

Does minecraft count as an older game? It IS over 10 years old by now, and I really can't see it dying anytime soon

Any game that doesn't get deleted, cause its the internet age and the population keeps rising. Everything will probably be super easy to host on a private server. In 100 years we will be playing everything.

DooM_Slayer226

While it is better in terms of weapon variety and the ability to use melee weapons, I think the nostalgia for L4D1 is too great for most people to just gloss over it. I prefer the atmosphere and level design better in L4D in my opinion


intro_set3

Animal Crossing


Kyleforshort

If anyone is playing anything that is currently available as a video game in 100 years, we have a problem.

none. it’s not a timeless industry, games become obsolete within a decade or two


farts_n_darts

My husband and I are playing the GBA Castlevania collection here, 20+ years after I originally played through. So I guess I think a lot of games will endure.


-_13_2334-192_-

I agree, many games will survive with a small, robust community

PapaYunny

Dark Souls 3


Trogdor420

Skyrim


KuroOni

To be honest skyrim wouldn't be that good without the modders, the lore is good, the gameplay on the other hand, not so much by today's standards. I highly doubt the modding community will be active in 100 years, so I don't think people 100 years from now will be playing it.


Crucis_Star

Chrono Cross

sorrybouthat00

If graphics keep enhancing and VR becomes more practical then nothing we have today will be considered worth playing in comparison to what will be available in 100 years. I'm pretty sure something like the Oasis from Ready Player One will be closer to what we'll have 100 years from now. If anything, all of the games from today will have been remastered so many times in a century that they won't even be the same thing anymore.


Rabidleopard

I'm sure historian will be playing mortal kombat 1 when they write papers about the moral panic regarding violence in video games.


Ragetechh

Doom, of course.


brixalot10

Pong and Super Mario Bros. (NES) will probably be played for about as long as video games are a thing, at least in museums and such. I feel like arcade machines may still be around in 100 years but idk.
