Interesting read and topic. Loved the choices, and it was joy to read. What are your thoughts?

Hopefully the appreciation for this list isn't lost in all of the Quicky drama.

Great list. Each entry was expected, but well written.

I have a feeling that it's deja vu in this new list. As if I'd seen that list before...

Another top-quality endeavor by WP.

Also, mentioning the passing of Iwata was a brilliant stroke of respect and gratitude.

Half of this list wasn't much of a surprise at all when I heard about them.

Really liked the list. As far as the entries not being surprising, I think there's a lot of hindsight going on. Looking back, it's easy to say we saw these coming, but I think most of them were truly surprising at the time.

It was a list idea for some time here. I remember the discussion. But hey, I never expected that topic to be picked up and turned into a list!

I think this list is a good reminder that the gaming industry's face is always changing to adjust with the times; the same can be said of a lot of media too. It does make you wonder where it's all going to go in the future. Will we easily play games the same way people access the Internet using cyber-brains like in Ghost in the Shell? That would certainly be a huge leap in technology and how people consume their media daily.

Great as usual, keep up the amazing work!

List was very well done, but I also have the feeling I had seen this list before. I thought it was a previous list until I saw the date at the bottom.

Guess my mind is just remembering pieces of different older lists.
