What makes a game more popular than the others? There may be many reasons but the chief one being `What is the goal of the game?` the goal of the game along with other factors makes or breaks a game. The top 10 video games, all with a unique goal are discussed here. Take your pick on the basis of the activities that need to be performed.

1. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

The mission of `Link` is to Gather the Power of the Seven Sages and then shut Ganondorf in the Dark World Forever. This is due to the fact that Link was tricked by Ganondorf (King of Gerudo Thieves) when Link was a young boy. Ganondorf had used `Link` to access the `Sacred Realm`, and had then transformed the beautiful Hyrulean into a barren land. But Link was determined to resolve the problems that he had helped to create, so he takes the help of `Rauru` and travels around, gathering the powers of Seven Sages to accomplish his mission.

2. Tetris

The main object of the game is to manipulate the Tetrominoes (shapes formed by 4-square blocks each that fall down the playing area), by moving them either sideways or rotating them by up to 90 degree units. It is done to create a horizontal line of blocks without gaps and as soon as such a line is made, it disappears, leading to the fall of any block above the line that has got deleted.

As the game progresses, the Tetrominoes falls at a faster speed, and when all the Tetrominoes stack up and reach the top of the playing area and no more Tetrominoes are able to enter, the player is victorious! A truly interesting game that requires concentration and fast motor skills of the player!

You may face challenges like defeating `a boss`, finding solutions to puzzles, collecting coins and racing against an opponent.

On field maps, several characters are sent across which either represent towns or forests. The battle screen is an area, like grassland or a building's interior, where you can give you commands against your enemies. This game has characters made up of polygons instead of 2D sprites.
