It's obvious this is a BS list xD no person with knowledge about videogames would believe this is true xD it's just so funny

Tetris should be on that list.

It was the first, and most popular, puzzle game

I like some of the things on the list. But there is HEAVY FPS bias and too many recent games, not enough true pioneers

Doom, which was an upgrade to Wolfenstein by id is the most innovative game of all time?

Funny that they say "most innovative games EVER" and include all 3D games.


Shouldn't DUCK HUNT be on that list?? It was the first shooting game, and spawned a lot of arcade shooters like Area 51, House of the Dead, Time Crisis, and many others.

The gun was also the first peripheral and probably inspired the motion control that Wii is now using.

Duck Hunt wasn't even close to being the first shooting game.



Yet, today, America's leaders are reenacting every folly that brought these great powers [Russia, Germany, and Japan] to ruin -- from arrogance and hubris, to assertions of global hegemony, to imperial overstretch, to trumpeting new 'crusades,' to handing out war guarantees to regions and countries where Americans have never fought before. We are piling up the kind of commitments that produced the greatest disasters of the twentieth century.

No Shenmue? Wtf! Good list anyway.

HALO??? You have GOT to be kidding me. Before HALO, FPS were a tedious affair... unless you owned a Nintendo 64.

BioShock for "Morality and Free Will"??? I kind of remember that with the first Baldur's Gate 2 console generations earlier (and I won't pretend to know if that was first or not).

F***ing GEOMETRY WARS? WTF? Does this douche realize that distribution is not an innovation of the game, but of the marketing and sales departments?

No Tetris?

No Sim City?

No Donkey Kong?

No Super Mario Bros?

No GTA3?

There is not a FAIL of high enough level to give to this idiocy.



Why isn't Super Mario Bros. on the list?

I believe the very first video game I ever played was a duck* shooting game. Even had a dog that barked. That would have been... oh... 1975, maybe 1976? Even if it was a brand new game at the time, it's still beating Duck Hunt by 8 years.

 

*To be fair, I was five years old. They could have been geese.

Didn't BattleZone do the whole first person perspective thing first (or nearly so)? All Wolfenstein did was delete the tank!



This list is bullshit. No racing game at all, too many shooters (and modern ones which cannot be innovative due to their recent release), not enough Sega/Nintendo/Atari and there is only two 2D games listed.



“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.
