This list is half-o-trash. There is Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario World, Elite, Civilization, Lemmings, Dune II, Carmageddon, Fullout, Baldur's Gate, Quake, Max Payne? The games witch REALLY important for industry?

And one more. This list is NOT represents sales. Sir, no sir! Even closely not.

Halo? There was FPS before Halo.

Of course this could be entirely based on sales, (I really don't know for sure,) but it is interesting to read even if the opinion is a bit biased. Btw, wasn't Metal Slug an import from Japan? I didn't even know about Metal Slug untill I saw it one day in a "half off" bin at my local video game store. (And what a treasure it is!)

Of course you can't stick all the real good games into that list - Kirby and earthworm Jim are the ones that instantly come to me, but hey!.. Every 'top' list is subjective..

That was a very good feature with some insight on the games. Thanks for the cool link, I enjoyed reading it this morning!
