34 Video Game Levels That You Must Play Before You Die

The essential stages of video game history. Please, add your own!

"Super Mario Bros.," Level 1-1

So, let's start with the basics.

"The Legend of Zelda," First Dungeon

Again, this is a prerequisite. These first two should be called "Two video game levels to play before you ever have a conversation ever."

"The Legend of Zelda," Ninth Dungeon

As long as you're playing the original Zelda, you should beat the game. Or, as Samir Mezrahi, our deputy social media editor, puts it, "The thought of the music when you enter the level still gives me the chills."

This is the definitive level in what a plurality of gamers would call the greatest game ever made. Beating it is a rite of passage. It's like a Bat Mitzvah for dorks, I mean sick bros.

Billy Olson

Billy Olson

Olson, the fourth roommate in Zuckerberg, Hughes, and Moskovitz's suite, was "an amateur thespian with an impish streak," according to David Kirkpatrick, author of The Facebook Effect. In The Social Network, Olson has the bright idea of comparing students to farm animals. While his friends all went on to become billionaires, Olson took time off from Harvard and never graduated, said a Harvard official. Still, he ended up making friends with a tight-knit group of younger students, with whom he is still close, according to a former classmate. Friends said Olson had become a firefighter in his hometown of Briarcliff Manor, New York.
