First time poster, so “hello to you all”

I believe Pac Man has all the key ingredients for a solo game.  It has risk and reward, massive replay value and very simple mechanics.  So as a designer I think it’s a must play.
 
Bomberman is another fantastic source of inspiration mostly for competitive and cooperative play.
 
Other games of note are Monkey Island, Street Fighter 2, Tetris, Outrun and Gauntlet.
 
Granted these are old but they give great insight into why certain things just work.

Has anyone mentioned Robotron?
I will.... Robotron.
So simple, so addictive, great sound effects.
