Games that have withstood the test of time

A few hours ago, the retronauts folks asked the following question via Twitter: Which one game do you think best withstands the test of time to be as great today as it was when it first launched?

My response:

Other games that I believe have withstood the test of time: Bubble Bobble (and its sequels, Rainbow Islands and Parasol Stars), Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr., Final Fantasy VVI and Tactics, Ms. Pac-Man, Tetris, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and the first three Super Mario Bros. titles. (OK, throw Super Mario World in there, too.)

So, the question is: Which titles do you guys and gals believe have withstood the test of time?

God, I could still play pretty much any of those games for hours, especially Zelda and Ms. Pac-Man.

I think the game that has aged the least of any game I've ever played is Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Hands down.

Hey there, Rusalka! Yeah, I could play all of those games I mentioned for hours on end. I guess that's part of the reason they're timeless, right?

I can't really disagree with you, Justin--though I'd probably put Yoshi's Island in the same boat :)
