Donkey Kong has been around for quite some time and has been involved in a number of notable escapades.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie focuses on the titular Italian plumbers, but it also includes Donkey Kong, the guy that started it all. Without the problems produced by Cranky Kong in the 1981 arcade game, Mario would not be where he is today.

Since then, Donkey Kong has appeared in games from four distinct decades, and the Donkey Kong franchise has surely left its imprint on successive generations. However, the newest generation of enthusiasts may be unaware of the sheer number of Donkey Kong games available and their impact on the gaming industry. A few titles have withstood the test of time and continue to represent the best of what the franchise has to offer.
