    have to see that the army is recruiting people into their ranks with games is annoying me. war is not a clean "dehumanized" computergame. dont get me wrong,first person shooters are my favorite. wolfenstein 3d and spear of destiny to doom 1+2 and medal of honor to doom3 are among my favorite games. for me its not "cool" to be a soldier and kill people for real. though, most of the young generations guy's and girls wouldnt agree.

    snake? tank? PoP? Pokemon? GTA? Diablo? DnD? HL? NFS? not even a mention? you forgot mention of the gaming engine innovations, and the graphic cards...u talk about PC gaming without so much as a fleeting reference to S3s and voodoos? :(

    u would have just needed another 10-15 mins to include these...unforgiveable

    Not even mention Civilization? Thats like not mentioning Mario Bros in the history of video games.

    Sports games are lame. I hate how Tony keeps pushing his skateboard game whenever he has a spare second.

    Also, they've completely ignored RTS games. And Blizzard as a company. Most people might remember them for Warcraft Orcs vs Humans and StarCraft, but they als made Vikings. Remember that? :)

    i was a little disapointed that they didnt mention the N64. like that was a god damn land mark. like the symbol of a generation, one of the best systems of all time, if no the best. come on guys, step ur game up.

    Blizzard also did an awesome game called Blackthorne - platform affair where you could hide in shadows. One of the best platformers ive ever played.
    Im 37 and my first introduction to "video games" was the Atari VCS (i think it was called) when i was 5, clunky switches, wooden console, a dimmer switch for a controller and black and white graphics. I wonder what games 5 yr olds today will be playing when their my age.

    I think that the hand held games were one of the big video gaming landmarks.
