    Rogue was the first game to add randomly-generated rooms.

    I'm not convinced Doctor Hauzer is cel-shaded. I think those are just plain textures and when people talk about cel-shading in video games they tend to be referring to real-time calculation. For a start, the environment definitely doesn't employ the technique, and neither does the dude's hair or jacket, so why implement a whole new rendering method just for the main characters face? Secondly, cel-shading calculates and constantly updates each cel to provide a kind of fake real-time lighting effect, which isn't happening here. The shadows are completely symmetrical and don't change with movement. If you ask me Doctor Hauzer can have a point for using comic book style artwork, but there's really nothing special about the rendering... it's probably just the result of developers trying to save memory on textures wherever possible.

    That said, if we're going by that criteria then games such as Out of This World came first anyway. Doctor Hauzer really doesn't seem that special at all.

    Quick Time Events(QTE) was Shenmue I believe

    Shenmue was the first notable modern example, and likely the popularizer. The term Quick Time Event is (debateably) attributed to Yu Suzuki. The first use of Quick Time Events I have heard of though was the original Dragon's Lair in 80's arcades. Cliffhanger too. There may have been a few earlier examples, as well. Actually showing the proper button prompts on screen was added soon after, in other games to follow the style. It was common on laserdisc games since the systems really couldn't handle much programmable gameplay.

    Winback or Kill.Switch always get mentioned in the 3rd person cover discussions I have heard.

    Luster means shining. "Star luster" means the light that comes from stars.

    Accurate.
