2016 has proven that anything is possible.Pokémon, a classic game we thought had died when the '90s came to an end, is back, which means there are so many more past hit games we need to see stage a comeback. Whether they're classic computer games or video games we played on our Sega Genesis, here are 10 more interactive games that not only need to become mobile apps (because no one is using a computer to play these things anymore) but also become instant sensations, so they can become as interactive as Pokémon Go.1. The Sims: Yes, there's already a mobile app, but it really doesn't compare to the classic computer game that had us legitimately tied to our computers for eight hours at a time. EA Games, we implore you to release something as good because we're desperate to control every aspect of our Sims' lives (seeing as we hardly can figure out our own).

2. Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?: Not only did this game teach us geography, it also got us to get in touch with our inner investigator in the coolest way imaginable. Eventually, it received its own TV show, catapulting it to the top of pop culture. Need we say more?3. The Oregon Trail: Just let us try to ford the river ONE MORE TIME. We know we can make it. In hindsight, we'd probably choose to have a doctor onboard more often.4. Putt-Putt: this purple convertible probably gave us unrealistic expectations about first cars, but who wouldn't want to drive around with his puppy, Pep, again?

5. Zoombinis: If we're going to be addicted to games, we might as well be doing some good—save the little blue creatures! Zoombinis was a fun, educational game that helped kids learn puzzle-solving skills in order to help the Zoombinis escape. There's nothing more entertaining than figuring out what pizza toppings a character wants, considering we all want pizza.6. Tamagotchi: No explanation necessary, but should these make an awesome comeback, don't get caught by your boss secretly feeding it underneath your desk.7. Sonic the Hedgehog: Give us back the adventures of Sonic, Knuckles and Tails! We can definitely picture ourselves scooping up all the golden rings imaginable, instead of trying to catch Pokémon with Pokéballs.

8. Treasure Mountain: We're willing to overlook the whole improve-your-math-skills portion of this game if it means we get to find hidden treasures all over again. It's like National Treasure meets mobile app.9. Frogger: Was there anything more addictive than trying to help a frog navigate his way through traffic? Considering walking the streets of NYC is like one giant game of Frogger, we'd prefer to keep dangerous street crossing to our phones. Then again, constantly staring at our screens will only add to the danger. We digress...but we still want Frogger to become cool again.10. Pong: Albeit simple, Pong was a classic digital version of Ping Pong. Why it was so hard to put down, we'll never understand, but we still need a new version of this in our lives.
