    As much as I love the article I must be an ass and point out the screenshot for Half-Life 2 isn't actually in the game. It's from the leaked beta as I recall it.

    COD 4 is one of the greatest games ever.

    This is a great idea for an article. I can't wait for the day when people finally admit that video-games are art...I just hope I'm alive to see it.

    Was afraid COD4 wouldn't be there but thank you for putting it on it totally deserves it. Except I think it does because it was the first real game to put you in realistic, modern, first person combat. Tom Clancy games may have done it a bit first but COD did it the best.

    (Sorry for the double post) @GamerTagsSuck - The third KOTOR is called just "The Old Republic," and will be an MMORPG. The second KOTOR wasn't made by Bioware, but Obsidian, and is widely considered a broken, incomplete game (rushed for xmas of that year).

    Fantastic article, Mikel. If only any one of these were recognized by the mainstream as we do. As a gamer too young to know any generation other than this one and the last, can I ask what game introduced the convention of saves, that, as an RPG player, I use far too freequently? That, strictly from a technical perspective, deserves recognition.

    Superb article, Mikel. Every game is given an incredibly well-reasoned argument as to their inclusion into the list.

    The ENTIRE last page I agree with. You put way to much work into this Mikel. PS: Where is Mass Effect... I know KOTOR came first... but I suppose you kinda need to wait for 2. Just to see if they can pull off a 3 game thing like that.
