The Top Spin series un­der­went var­i­ous makeovers across its eight-year his­tory to the point of its 2011 – and fi­nal – guise be­ing for the most part un­recog­nis­able from the game that started it all. In ret­ro­spect TopSpin3 (Xbox 360, 2008) was the pick of the bunch, but it’s the orig­i­nal which makes our list, in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of it paving the way. Mi­crosoft Game Stu­dios went down the au­then­tic­ity route, with a serv­ing model that bal­anced pace and ac­cu­racy, and range of shots that felt grounded in re­al­ity. Like cover star Pete Sam­pras, it oozed ex­cel­lence.
