New YouTube Series from Brett Weiss - Mount Rushmore of Video Games & Consoles

Discover the Mount Rushmore of Video Games for Classic Consoles!

Hey gamers, have you ever wondered which games truly define each video game console? Well, you’re in luck! I've began a YouTube series where I unveil the "Mount Rushmore of Video Games" for various legendary gaming consoles. Each video dives into the top four most iconic games that have left an indelible mark on their respective systems. Whether you're a retro enthusiast or a curious newcomer, this series is your ticket to nostalgia!

Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)

Years ago, before I had the idea to film a series, I did a Mount Rushmore of games for the mighty Super Nintendo. In the video, I explore four games that not only define the SNES but also helped shape gaming in general. From the platforming excellence of Super Mario World, the primary pack-in title, to the brilliance of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, which was even better than the original Zelda, these picks are sure to spark debate and fond memories. Check out the short video to see which other two games made it on the list!

Nintendo 64 (N64)

To kick off the actual series, I tackled the Nintendo 64, a console that revolutionized 3D gaming. My Mount Rushmore for the N64 features titles that brought friends together and turned gaming into a shared adventure more than ever before, or at least since the heyday of the Atari 2600 and Intellivision. Remember the countless hours spent on Super Mario 64 or the intense multiplayer battles in GoldenEye 007? Relive these moments and find out the other two games that complete the N64’s Mount Rushmore by watching the video.

PlayStation (PS1)

The original PlayStation changed the game with its groundbreaking graphics and expansive game library. In this video, I delve into the four games that are quintessential to the PS1 experience. From the revolutionary Final Fantasy VII to the heart-racing action of Metal Gear Solid, these selections highlight the innovation and sheer mass appeal of the PlayStation. Check out the video to see which other games are immortalized on this virtual monument. Plus, I just had to include an honorable mention.

Why Watch the Series?

Each video in the series more than just a rundown of great games; they’re a celebration of gaming culture and the impact these consoles and their games have had on both the industry and players across the world. I blend fun facts, personal anecdotes, and a deep dive into what makes each game worthy of its Mount Rushmore status.
