So I got into a really interesting discussion the other day with a friend of mine about games (PC, Console, any and all) and we were trying to trace the landmark games that we remembered. The main issue was we couldn't agree on the terms of the criteria. For example, does popularity fit into rating a landmark game? Playability? Technology? Definitely originality. So what are the truly landmark games? Here's what I think: Myst - Wasn't it the first CD-Rom game that brought PC gaming into the main stream? Wolfentstein - The Grand Daddy of all things FPS Pong - It was first Tetris - Wasn't Tetris really the first Puzzle game to completely and totally mesmerize the general populous. Zork - Role Playing Masterpiece Sim City How about Mario Bros 2 or was that just a rehash of a previous side scroller? There are others but probably not landmarks. What about Wing Commander, Ultima, Pacman, (or newer) Warcraft, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy VII, (or even newer still) Metroid, Halo, Half-Life, Zelda,...etc. I'm noticing these are all fairly old. When would you say was the last true landmark game and why? I thought this would be an interesting discussion.
