Super Mario 64, it was revolutionary.



PS4 Pro, Nintendo Switch, PC: i5-4670k, RX470.

Super Mario 64 hands down...



The 'greatest' game in terms of what I would most want to play: BotW

The launch title that I feel had the greatest impact on gaming: Super Mario Bros

Wii Sports without question. It was synonymous with the Wii. It was why the console went viral.

Second to that, but first among dedicated gamers, is Halo. Halo made Xbox a thing. It was a massive success in that regard. I don't believe the history of Xbox would be nearly as good without Microsoft acquiring Halo. Halo was all over the place during that time and everyone was talking about. It was a really big deal.

I don't think any of the other games on that list had nearly as much impact.

Your reasoning for "first among dedicated gamers" applies much, much more to Super Mario Bros.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Going to have to go with Halo.

While SMB made a huge impact, with Nintendo's continued presence, it had a lot of support with it, and didn't launch with the Japanese Famicom launch.

Wii Sports was also big, but the games today are nothing like Wii Sports. Wii Sports started a brief movement.

Halo's impact has continued presence in today's gaming scene. Halo spawned Halo 2, and Halo 2 spawned the multiplayer movement. While it didn't do it first it certainly brought a lot more attention to it. Many of the top games today are FPS with multiplayer elements much like the Halo series. Halo helped MS succeed, MS becoming a 4th player in the console space and to hold 3rd place throughout most of it's lifetime. MS succeeding helped create XBL, and XBL is the cause of PS plus price and Nintendo online. Due to one game, many people are now paying to play online. Halo's launch buddies were absolutely terrible too.

Breath of the Wild? Didn't really do anything but help one console so far, maybe in the future we will look back and see BoTW as the beginning of a huge movement though.



What the heck? Where is Tetris?



Hunting Season is nigh...

No, it doesn't.



Tough call between SMW and Halo for me.



Twiloght princess by so much. God that game was near perfect at the time and still the best zelda game, it gave me hope for more mature Xelda titles and then Skyward sword shit all over it and the formula is now dead.
