The games available the first day a new console arrives usually run the gamut from slightly upgraded cross-generation ports to gorgeous but hollow racing game eye candy. But occasionally, a launch game comes along that is so exceptional and essential that it defines that console’s lifecycle and revolutionizes the video game medium as we know it. Here are what we think are the 10 best console launch games to ever exist!



  1. I’m a man of culture, i see halo I click

  2. Tetris on GB was like peanut butter and jelly.

  3. That’s a tough list to put in order. Nicely job.

  4. Is this the top 10 Nintendo launch titles of all time XD

    I mean they deserve it but dang lmao xD

  5. Botw is one of the best launch games ever.

  6. Was Super Mario Bros a launch title for NES???

  7. I love the whole list but Mario 64 had the biggest impact on me! Playing in a 3D world using a proper analog stick felt so revolutionary and natural! I just played around the Castle's exterior for hours before deciding to go inside!!!

  8. πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ€“πŸ˜’

  9. Super Mario Bros was not a launch title for NES or Famicom.

  10. Without looking, Mario 64 has to be #1
    Edit: No way would I put Halo above Mario 64. I wouldve switched places between it and Mario 64.

  11. My favorite day 1 launch game was NFL 2K on Dreamcast

  12. Would've put Mario 64 at the top. That game changed gaming like no game ever has before or probably ever will

  13. Mario 64, Halo and Melee are among the best of all time BUT

    I'd like to shine some light on Gungriffon Blaze for the PS2, the best pure mech action gameplay to this day…

    that's all :o)

  14. Giving Tetris the lowly no. 6 spot is just plain wrong – it is was of the most definitive games of all time! Handheld gaming arguably wouldn’t have launched to the stratosphere without it! It deserves at least the no.2, if not no.1 spot on the list.

  15. Xbox Series X launch game Halo Infinite in Xbox Game Pass
    PS5 launch game GodFall πŸ€£πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚

  16. Even though I'm a ride or die Sony fan i can admit that Nintendo has the best launch games

  17. Breath of the WIld and Twilight Princess don't even count, they were Gamecube/Wii U games originally and then ported over.

  18. What’s the point of owning a console until there is something worth to play?

  19. Nintendo has the best lunch games 😍β™₯

  20. There’s two games that made me buy a new gen console when it released. Halo 3 and Zelda BOTW


  22. I swear, does IGN have a Super Mario Bros. bias? I mean it pretty obvious now

  23. My top 2 would be Halo and breath of the wild. I’ve put hundreds of hours into them.

  24. Damn Halo Combat Evolved should’ve been number 1! But it’s also hard to compare it to Super Mario 64 or Super Mario World but man that game was golden! It’s very logical to pick Super Mario Bros as number one because it redefined gaming as a whole and is iconic as HELL so it makes sense to make it number one. Great list for once IGN!

  25. What about Sonic Adventure on Dreamcast or Sonic The Hedgehog on Sega Genesis?!??

  26. Super Mario World SNES has been my favorite console launch game as it was my first gaming console as a kid.

  27. Legend of Zelda breath of the wild is number 1 on my list.

  28. So Wii sports started the trend of pretty installed outdoor games .hmmmπŸ€”

  29. When the entire list is pretty much nintendo πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€

  30. Zelda BOW is not a launch game is a Nintendo Wii U game ported to switch………

  31. Would have made Halo #1, it’s a true masterpiece. But the rest is cool 😎

  32. Breath of the wild is my favorite launch title in additionto being one of my favorite games of all time. Second would probably be Luigi's mansion or wii sports.

  33. I…Super Mario World at 5????? BELOW SUPER MARIO 64?!?!?!

  34. Don't whitewash Circle of the Moon, it really wasn't that great

  35. Zelda is a terrible game, how the hell is it on this list

  36. If we’re going by influence alone, SMB is unmatched

  37. Halo Combat Evolved Should’ve Been Number 1
