Customary or required? 

In my own childhood development stunting order: 

2600 Missile Command, Defender, PacMan 

Apple II Lemon-aid Stand, Oregon Trail 

C=64 thumb-numbing Summer Games 

NES Zelda, SMBros, Metroid 

Tandy 1000 various Sierra Game adventure series 

Later PC Commander Keen, Wolfenstein 3D, TW2002 

These millennials have it easy with their gaming addictions. They can
just latch on to the latest MMORPG and suckle the tit for a decade. I
had to work for my bleeding thumbs...
