The Gears of War series for making cover and Horde modes popular and Bioshock for the importance of story.

Personally, of course.

I'm here for intelligent arguments or flaming. It's your job to decipher which.

call of duty: it has a lot of elements that were copied by other games (bloody screen, leveling up in non role playing games, perks...)
MotiJr:Sony copied George Foreman grills with their playstation 3 design.

No, it's fact. Gears' cover system made many, many games.
You know, whenever a poster uses the terms "b**** and whine" or "piss and moan" or something similar, I simply ignore the entire post.

oblivion(on the 360) and CoD.

everything else pales in comparison and topic didn't say anything about "good" influences.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Gears of War

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Halo 3

Castle Crashers (sort of started the Arcade craze)

Skyrim (made RPGs more prominent)


I assume we are speaking strictly of this gen and Xbox 360 games.
If life seems jolly rotten, there's something you've forgotten...And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
