If you have been a gamer during the last decade, you will find yourselves with a wide range of games that are pretty awesome. Nonetheless, there are games that have transcended with few modifications to become the most popular games of all time.
First off, you need to know that the classification we have made is not only based in the best selling video games, although it played a very important part we took into consideration.
And even though there are games like Detroit Become Human that can really blow your mind with its astonishing story lines where the smallest change can lead you to a totally different result, that’s not how the real popularity works.
Here’s the important points a game needs in order to qualify for the list of the most popular of all time. I will list them short and crystal clear for you.
It needs to be a best selling game. Realistically, any game that sells well need to be considered. However, there are games that sell well in a generation, but then not many people play it in the next generation -even if they find it for free.
It has to be a white or purple rated game in most cases —So almost everyone can play it. You will never find a restricted game, rated black or red, to be really popular —with few exceptions like Grand Theft Auto— for obvious reasons.
It has to be able to defy your mind without been too hard to play. In other words, it needs to present an increasing level of difficulties followed by intuitive learning where you can be out of danger or gain a new power.
