I actually had to pause a sec. I mean of course super Mario bros is legendary but ultima 4 and kings quest 2 were industry defining in their own right.

Super fucking Mario Brothers.

I seriously doubt anyone but the most dedicated hardcore gamer with a masochist disposition could pick up and play any of the others for more than 5 minutes these days, if they can even understand what you’re supposed to do or how the interface even works. If you’ve played a game in your life, SMB is the definition of pick-up-and-play.

Ultima 4
I was living in that world for several months. Played it on a Sega Master System. And couldn't finish it because I wasn't humble enough. I had the other 7 virtues completed, but humility was a tough nut to crack.

And to the people who voted for another game:
Thou hast lost an eighth!!

I went against the grain and voted Gradius because that was the game I spent most of my time playing during that period, though I understand Super Mario Bros. Being the most important - however, that was not the question.
