Dune 2 deserves to be in the List it invented RTS something like that was never made before. And makes fun even today. Mario 64 I can completly agree with it. Before I saw the first time Mario 64 I had no Idea how 3d Gaming could even look like. Mario 64 was the first 3d game which had this 3d feeling. I was extremly stunned by the magnificent graphics. I spend hours in the garden in front of the Castle, just running in the Water and jumping around this kind of World was unique.


Tomb Raider ok it was a great game and you could honor the fact that they transportet the whole game via a girl. It was more a man game and they did it with a women that was never done before. Ok Metroid but infact everyone was surprised that its a girl it was more of a shocker. But Tomb Raider could be discussed anyway.

Halo ok it had influence a big one on the shooter market maybe if they would list the 10 most innovative Games it would been on the List.

WOW dont know, never played it before.

The first two I can fully accept. They had massive Influence infact the founded the genres. Dune 2 for sure founded RTS and Mario is the beginning of modern 3d gaming.

I can understand all the games he chose and why he chose them but I would add Elder Scrolls: Arena as it was the first open world game (1994) and was the first game to have a Day-Night cycle. Also, surely Wolfenstein 3D should be up there as it invented the FPS genre.

Elder Scrolls is the first thing that poped in my head when he was talking about open world gaming.

While Wolf3D invented FPS, I think Quake is more influential. This was many peoples first experience with online FPS's. When QuakeWorld added TCP/IP support those stuck with dial-up could actually achieve playable pings! Oh sure it wasn't as good as those LPB's with cable/DSL but still decent   That made it accessible to more and more people and it just snowballed from there - to where we are today.

 

You might have a point with Quake, I remember playing it with my mates after school. Good times. It was also the first FPS to include fully 3D character models I believe.


Oh yeah! Plus GLquake added graphics upgrades to those of us lucky enough to have *gasp* graphics cards in our PC's.

Heh.

Also, the developers were nice enough to release the tools to create our own levels. Anyone else remember when Id was god?

Wow not a playstation exclusive in sight

Sony's games are never particularly innovative. Neither are Microsoft's, for that matter. Halo doesn't deserve to be on that list, Goldeneye came before it. And, as everyone's said, EverQuest is more innovative than WoW (but not as good). Tomb Raider and Mario 64, I'll agree with.

isn't EverQuest made by SOE (Sony Online Entertainment )?

I would add maybe Wii Sports

dEFINETELY either Final Fantasy 1 or Dragon Quest 1

you cannot deny those two games shaped an entire genre

I have to point this out - DQ 1 was released in Japan to Major success..it the Godfather of JRPG's, at the time of DQ's released SAURESOFT was nearly bankrupt, and Hironobu was task with making at the time probably there last game( which how the name FINAL FANTASY came up) it borrowed heavily from DQ but with Sakaguchis own style..so FF1 wasnt innovative..DQ was the inspiration for FF basically givin birth to FF

Very well, Sony Computer Entertainment. Because when EverQuest was made, SOE was part of Sony Pictures.
