most_recognizable_video_game_franchises.jpg
Those amongst us of a certain age will remember classic titles that kept us entertained in the 1990s, 1980s, or even as far back as the 1970s. Games we loved in our youth can often bring back many of our fondest memories, influencing our gaming preferences and favorite genres for many years afterwards, which is why developers of the most popular franchises from decades ago are equally reluctant to consign them to the past.

Veteran gamers still have an endearing desire to play classic titles they enjoyed years ago, while even modern gamers are getting increasingly drawn into the appeal of retro franchises, with some of the most iconic pixel characters becoming seemingly immortal, their names continuing to remain popular. Some have arguably become even more popular or well-known than they were in their heyday.

A huge number of people have a console in their homes, especially if we include the ones that only use them to stream Netflix to their television, and many more have a PC of some description. If we even go as far as counting smartphones and tablets as veritable gaming devices, which would probably mean counting Clash of Clans as a video game, then virtually everyone has a gaming device of some description.


However, this was certainly not always the case and while there is no single game that marked this shift in attitude among the general public, there have been a number of contributing factors. After all, we have come a very long way since the days of Pong and needing to buy an Atari just to type in our own code and hope that it works at the end! However, there are several games that have changed the (gaming) world in some way or another and today we wanted to bring you three of our...

The gameplay itself is unusual and original, not like standard RPGs, although, in theory, the game belongs to this genre — single-player game....

No media exists in a vacuum, and rarely is that as true as it is in the world of video games. Reaching its tendrils out deep into the surrounding entertainment arena, you'd be hard-pressed to find any form of recreation which didn't inform gaming in some way.

What we want to look at, though, is how other forms of gaming have influenced video games throughout the years, starting with what might be the most immediately obvious example in the modern age.

Loot boxes, as they currently exist, draw their inspiration directly from the world of online casinos. Take a look at something like the online jackpots listed by NetEnt Casino, for example. Exploring this recently redesigned website, you might detect inspiration from the likes of online storefronts such as Steam. Information is king here, with a streamlined approach making it much easier for users.

The part we really want to focus on here comes from the basic idea of slot...
