Introducing the ten games I feel are the most important in shaping the industry into what has become today. Did I cut a game you felt should've been on here? =)
FAQ: What about online games? I thought about including one of those, but because massively popular online gaming isn't as time-tested as the contributions of these ten titles, I decided to exclude them. Still though, there's no doubt that online gaming has become humongous.
FAQ #2: Why only classics? They're more time-tested. Again, remember that this list is about impact only (not quality). There's no doubt that many newer games have made enormous impacts, but they either need more time for their full impact to be felt (because of their recent releases) or just haven't had as much time as these ten (because they were released later).
FAQ#3: What about (game) that invented/popularized (genre)? As big as one genre may be, if that's all a game did, then it doesn't really compare to these ten. After all, when you look at the big picture, specific genres aren't as big as all 3D games, standard game design features, characters, etc.
