The 4 Best Pack-In Games Of All Time

Recommended Posts

So I did another Mt. Rushmore video, this time covering the best pack-in video games of all time.

Please note, these are not necessarily my favorites, but rather the games that I thought did the best job of selling their systems.


So, what four pack-in games do you think did the best job of selling their systems?

Can't argue with that list at all.  

Intellivision misfired (much like Atari) on their pack-in as far as showing off their systems, but I can see how Poker & Blackjack might have swung a few fathers over to it's side. 
Nintendo kept it up on their pack-ins with newer versions of Mario Brothers always being quality and also utilizing each new system's new features.

I have heard that the Switch's pack in game is almost insulting, however.

Another solid video. I can't disagree with any of your choices. Honorable mentions go to Colecovision/Donkey Kong and Lynx/California Games.


From a value perspective, I want to give a shout out to the Coleco Gemini with DK and Mouse Trap. That was my first console and I didn't care at all the it wasn't an "Atari".
