What makes Star Fox such a revolutionary game was that it was the first game to push the graphic capabilities of the NES past the typical side scrolling, 2D routine. In addition to the game's awesome visuals, the banter between Fox McCloud and his comrades became classic memes. No one will ever forget "Do a barrell roll!" Not even Google given that if you type the phrase into the search field, the screen will do one.
