Answer: Frogger

In 1998, the last official video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) was released to North American audiences: Frogger: He’s Back!. It was a curious circle-of-life moment in the video game industry.

Originally released in 1981, Frogger was a staple of the early video game scene. In 1997, Hasbro Interactive released a remake of the original with updated graphics and additional content for a variety of systems. What was once the first and most popular 8-bit video game of the early 1980s, lauded by critics and fans alike, ended up being the last of the 16-bit video games of the 1990s, critically panned by nearly everyone.
