5 Hugely Popular Games That Turned 10 This 2016
Some games are enduring while some just go into oblivion without anyone noticing them. Why are some games successful while others are not? Here are 5 hugely popular games that turned 10 this 2016 and along with it are the secret why they have endured the test of time.
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
Elder Scrolls was first introduced as a small-scale RPG game in 2002 with the launch of Morrowind. In Oblivion, however, the developers went full-scale including the whole nation of Cyrodiil. With whole means every nook and cranny of Cyrodiil were placed in detail. Oblivion was the first open-world RPG and the first fully voiced NPCs. The game has become a standard of other open-world RPG games after that.
Gears of War
Third-person cover combat had been used by other games before Gears of War but it was the one which popularized this style of combat, even making it the standard mode of action games. Aside from that, Gears also innovated the active reload system of reloading guns. This element in the gameplay gives players something to be busy with while ducking for cover.
The Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess
The third game in the list of hugely popular games that turned 10 this 2016 is The Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess. One of the things Zelda accomplished was enhance horse combat and introduce travel between worlds instead of time travel, which is much cooler.
