crash bandicoot anyone?

A pretty good list for games that changed the *world* rather than just the VG industry.

I would be tempted to remove World of Warcraft (not visible enough to the general public) and Guitar Hero (ditto), and add instead Tetris and Pokemon, both of them mass phenomena.

On half-a-seconds reflection, scratch Pokemon and put in Tamagotchi. It had a bigger immediate public impact.



1. Pong
2. Pac Man
3. Super Mario Bros
4. Tetris
5. Final Fantasy VII
6. GTA III
7. Wii Sports

It's hard to get it down to 7 really, I think all those games defined their respective 'generation' so to speak.



guitar hero should definitely be taken out. also i think DDR and WoW should be taken out. in their place put super mario bros. and then maybe super mario 64 and zelda:OoT, but you could also go with street fighter 2, or maybe dragon warrior since it started up the modern rpg genre, although i think generally dragon warrior isn't looked at as a huge world changing game. but smb, sm64, z64, and sf2 all are.

Games I've beat recently: Super Mario Galaxy, Knights of the Old Republic, Shadow of the Collossus
