Pub: Nintendo

They couldn't just be content with making a straight sequel to the best game ever, could they?

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

More refined on 3DS, but you can't beat touching that big, gold cartridge. It's like owning the master copy of Citizen Kane.

The only Bond game you'll ever need. Even after all these years, GoldenEye's four-way local multiplayer has yet to be surpassed.

Super Mario 64

Revolutionary platformer set the blueprint for all future 3D games to follow - and wouldn't itself be bettered until 2007's Mario Galaxy.
