While lovable character Mario had two games in the top three with Mario Kart and Super Mario World.
PacMan and Call of Duty were also popular, with The Sims and Tomb Raider others to make the list.
A spokesperson for Lottoland.co.uk, which offers a host of retro-inspired games, said: “There are some timeless classics on the list here, and a lot of them people are still playing to this day.

“And it’s no different here – from Space Invaders to Street Fighter, our games are inspired by the best of the best. Who needs Tomb Raider when you’ve got Tetris?”
The study also found 62 per cent of gamers grew up playing the titles, with 58 per cent of those with children now sharing their favourites with them.
