One of the most influential classic games of all time was Asteroids. Released in 1979, the game features a tiny spaceship which players have to navigate through a field of asteroids. It has vector graphics, a pulsing soundtrack, and an extremely addictive nature.
During the golden age of arcade gaming, Asteroids managed to sell more than 70,000 arcade cabinets. But, in the early '80s, Asteroids was ported over to the Atari 2600, bringing the game to a whole new generation of gamers.
