" This game is clearly about an inter-species love and video games' first Snidley Whiplash, Mario, trying to weasel his way between those two lovebirds so he can have the lady for himself. You might not see things the same way I do, but if you've played this classic, I'm sure we can agree on at least one thing; this game is quite delightful. RUNNERS-UP: Galaga (Arcade) Ms. Pac-Man (Arcade) Frogger (Arcade)"

45 Best Classic Games I've Played! (45 games items)

"Mario, Or As Jumpman He Was Known, Has To Rescue A Princess From The Evil Hairy Paws Of Donkey Kong (Then Simply Known As Kong). Both Of These Characters Would Go On To Be Nintendo's Iconic Characters! Anyways, The Graphics Were Simple But This Was The First Challenging Game I'd Played & Easily One Of The Immortal Classics! I Mean, Despite All Those 100's Of Mario & Donkey Kong Titles Out There, I Still Love The Original! 10/10 For The Times I Finally Managed To Save The Princess! Platform: "

"I watched my friend get to the finish so many times but could only make it occasionally myself, I think this game is a blast to play and like with all the games on the list I play it to mix it up from the newer modern games."

"Donkey Kong (1981), an arcade game created by Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, was the first game that allowed players to jump over obstacles and across gaps, making it the first true platformer. This game also introduced Mario, an icon of the genre."

"Arcade - 1981 "If there had not been Donkey Kong, I might be living a different life today. I don't know if it would be better or worse, but I like being surrounded by Donkey Kong and Mario and Pikmin and my other friends. it is about time to create new companions...." --DK creator Shigeru Miyamoto"

"Donkey Kong is an arcade game that was released by Nintendo in 1981. The game is an early example of the platform genre as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging obstacles. The storyline is thin but well-developed for its time. In it, Mario (originally called Jumpman) must rescue a damsel in distress, Pauline, from a giant ape named Donkey Kong. The hero and ape went on to become two of Nintendo's more popular characters."
