"BAH! pokemon was only at number 46" :-D lol

yes, considering pokemon has generated about 50 billion dollars in sales of everything but the kitchen sink and pantyhose as well as making an entire continent of nine year olds become obsessed over such a fad, such as moi when i was that age, id say that pokemon was significantly more influential than the sims.

im glad myst is up there, although i think it should be even higher. not too high, consdering it has to contend with all the old school revolutionary games. but meh...glad halo is up there too...id love it to be higher but it wasnt too influential compared with some of the other ones...even if it is my second favorite game of all time, ocarina of time being the first :-)

"Pokemon is more important that The Sims?"

Did the Sims spawn the idea of conning kids into bugging their parents into buying twenty different incarnations of the same characters?

I agree DDR should have been on it definately, personally I disagree with the opinion the Pa Rappa the Rapper spawned a series of games, I atrribute that to the fact rythem games had been in Japan forever, even I`m not sure the first. Parappa wasn`t even the first to have a plot, but really the first to break the American market.

the reason these are on here is not if they are good or popular, but because they are important to history. Personally I have some disagreements and I feel that this guy is wrong in some aspects but its his opinion, not fact.

Personally I dislike some of the games on there (hell, everyone hates ET) but they were all very important games.

Yay for Zelda!!!!

Parappa does seem kind of out of place... most people that I know wouldn`t consider that a "revolutionary" game.

Yeah, I was about to say...

It`s in chronological order, nothing to do with quality or importance.

Parrapa the rapper deserves it`s place for the revolutionary aspect.

Parappa the Rapper? That`s a joke, right?

I also don`t agree with the order of the list. The list goes pretty much in chronological order, and I agree that Mario Bros., Myst, and Tetris should all be much higher.

Eh, it`s an okay list. Most are really good games. I`m realy surprised that "Dragon`s Lair", "Mario Bros.", "Myst", and "tetris" is not higher on the list. But what do I know.
