Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter II, Resident Evil, and Doom. Crappy movies? Sure, but that’s not all they have in common. Along with other titles such as Super Mario Kart and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time they all made X-Play’s list of Top 10 Revolutionary Games of the 1990s. Here’s Part One and you’ll find Part Two after the jump.

    Though the actual games they picked here are accurate, the order they put them in is ridiculous. I’m sorry, but Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64 basically invented and perfected 3D gameplay – without those games, the industry doesn’t exist as we know it. Period. (Also would have put Half-Life a bit higher up, and the original Resident Evil is not all that influential, really. Almost none of its mechanics still exist.)

      As someone who’s not a big fan of the first-person shooter there a couple of these that don’t do much for me personally. Still the list is pretty good, and a little more eclectic (Super Mario Kart was a nice choice) than I expected.
