One of the coolest things about gaming in the 21st century—or really, even just in the 2010s (which I think is what we’re calling this decade)—is that new branches of the video game industry are helping old games to be revived for new audiences. Largely through the app market, but additionally online and in our mainstream consoles, we’ve seen countless examples of retro titles brought back into mainstream focus.

Here are 10 in particular that stand out. Some mainstream video games and other more old school forms of gaming.

10. Street Fighter

Capcom’s iconic fighter franchise only makes the list at #10 because I’m not sure the term “revival” applies. That’s because Street Fighter has never really gone away but rather remained popular for 25 years or so pretty much non stop. Nevertheless, it’s pretty cool that the upcoming Street Fighter V, which you can watch a trailer for it on YouTube, remains true to the original.

9. Prince Of Persia

I remember being wowed by the animation in Prince of Persia when I first played it on my Atari St. The concept of a Prince of Persia game bounced around and temporarily disappeared over the years before Ubisoft revived it in 2003 with a mind-blowing adventure for Xbox, Playstation, and Nintendo machines. That revival spawned a whole new series.

8. Bingo

This is more of an entire type of gaming that’s gained new life through modern formats. There have always been numerous specific ways to play bingo, based largely on varying game board designs, but lately the idea of different bingo games has taken on new meaning. GalaBingo represent’s the UK’s most-frequented online platform and provides a clear representation of this shift through the various themes that occupy its options. Different games are based on locations, TV shows, and various other concepts, making the game interesting for those who might view it as old-fashioned.

7. Battlezone

Atari’s original tank battle game is one of the simplest early arcade concepts that ever existed: roll a tank around and fire on your enemies, and that’s that. The game has been adapted at online arcade sites for years, but now exists in a more accessible fashion in the form of the mobile game Tanks! Free, a modern version that’s been tweaked only in minor ways. Although, if you prefer the original version, IGN actually offers a playable version.

6. Board Games

I’m placing every classic board games into one big category because they all pretty much now exist as mobile app games, playable either as standalone games or through online multiplayer platforms. For some, like Monopoly and The Game Of Life, the app adaptations are pretty straightforward. Other games like Scrabble have been twisted into new takes (in the case of Scrabble it’s Words With Friends).

5. Doom

Like Street Fighter, Doom has never quite gone away, so perhaps revival isn’t the right word. Nevertheless, it’s pretty incredible to find one of the games that really served as a foundation for the whole first-person shooter genre available as an app download. There’s also a brand-new console version of the game coming out in 2016. As seen in Kotaku’s in-depth look, it’s a pretty exciting blend of old-school atmosphere and modern shooter mechanics.

4. Connect Four

Connect Four has always been one of the simplest and most accessible games around, often seen in family room cupboards and in classroom closets. It’s also an easy game for people to draw up their own, as much like tic-tac-toe in that regard as it is like any classic board game. But now, of course, there’s an app that turns the game into a digital experience as well. Four In A Row is basically the same classic game without much embellishment, other than the ability to play against friends, family, and/or strangers through online multiplayer functionality.

3. Space Invaders

This is of course one of the most nostalgia-inducing arcade games out there. Moving a spaceship from side to side on the bottom of a gloriously simple display, dodging enemy fire and taking down alien vessels was just a perfect format, even decades ago, and that’s why the modern app version didn’t mess with it. Touchscreen controls are a little more annoying than arcade joysticks, but other than that, this is pretty much the same game now that it was when it first came out.

2. Pole Position

First designed for Atari in 1982, Pole Position is one of the original Formula 1 racing games and one of the first mainstream games to tackle the concept of track racing in general. The game has been revived (as Pole Position Remix) as an app. While a review in Slide To Play correctly implied that it feels a bit dated at this point, the app is actually a pretty accurate remake. That is to say, it’s quite close to the original, which retro gaming fans ought to appreciate.

1. Classic Arcades

Maybe I’ve already covered some classic arcade games on this list, by highlighting Space Invaders in particular, but with the #1 spot I’m talking in general about all the true classics—some of the first titles that come to mind when we hear the term “video game.” Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Centipede… Each of these games has been adapted countless times over the years, and all of them now exist as modernised apps that nevertheless involve the same gaming principles.

I think it’s great that apps are bringing all the above classic games to a new generation of gamers. Maybe holding a smartphone in your hand isn’t quite the same as being in a public arcade but time moves on and it’s great that our classic games are coming with us on that journey.
