Universe's "1001 Video Games You Need To Play" and alternate take on the topic

Hiya,

Back in the day, my glorius plan was to create book that would cover full history of console games by featuring 501 different games. Well, that project turned into catastrophe in the end, and not really viable to do when you have actual career going on. Well, in 2010, Universe Publishing published book called "1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die". The book itself follows same guidelines and format represented by Universe's other "1001" guides, and there is nothing wrong about production values. Book is hardback, printed on glossy paper and features full color images. The actual content, however, is rather questionable. The critics responsible for selecting the titles have done decisions that frankly leave me scratching my head:

* The book ignores almost completely European PC gaming culture and its flight sims, strategy games and adventure games.
* The book uses lot of throaway titles as a filler. You can find, for example, four Guitar Hero games, nine Grand Theft Autos, twelve Zeldas, Chronicles of Riddick two times (one for original, one for remake).
* The book, while it tries to comprehensive, excludes some critically important games. To give very simple example, there is no Mega Man 2 and only Mega Man featured is 8), for some reason. And best and most important Wing Commander is IV.
* Not even distribution titles. According to book, the most creative and important year in video gaming was 2009 with more than 100 titles, with wonderful titles like Army of Two: The 40th Day leading this creativity. More than 600 titles are from 2000's.

Because of this, and I just wanted to get that my old project for some use, me and several of my friends have created alternate take on this list. It focuses only on games that were released in the west, and its main aim is to give good summary about whole industry. For this purprose, it features everything from blockbusters to obscure classics, and there is limit how many times specific series is featured on the list. In our opinion, it is pointless to have 12 Zeldas, when whole series can be summarized in 7 most important titles. The list also shows quite interestingly how woefully un-informed US gaming audience tends to be about vibrant gaming industry that PC had in mid 90's.

Hypnotically inclined.

    While I believe this version is much better, it has still some clear flaws and there is obviously more than few titles missing. I'm kind of interested to hear what you would change and why?

    I imagine you could probably condense Civs into a couple of the distinct ones, rather than listing the entire series. They're great games, but not 5 original games great.
    Also, there seems to be a lack of original Amiga games. Games like Shadow of the Beast, the original Super Stardust, Turrican 2 or Agony have their issues, but are classics in their own right. More so than, IMO, some of the 11 Super Mario games up there.

    I imagine you could probably condense Civs into a couple of the distinct ones, rather than listing the entire series. They're great games, but not 5 original games great.

    I can see that point, and it would probably best to remove at least II from the list. V is also good candidate for pruning, but I personally appreciate that it at least tried to do something new with Civ formula. I don't actually know how people think about that game after all the ruckus it caused durings its release.

    Also, there seems to be a lack of original Amiga games. Games like Shadow of the Beast, the original Super Stardust, Turrican 2 or Agony have their issues, but are classics in their own right. More so than, IMO, some of the 11 Super Mario games up there.

    Yeah, I certainly agree about this... but when you check all the TOP-100 Amiga games lists... most of those games can be found from PC. Plus Amiga does have lot of those titles that were kind of good, until you compared them against what was going on PC or consoles. My personal knowledge on Amiga is also somewhat limited, even though I can recognize most major games.

    As a interesting sidenote, Amiga CD32 was also only console that isn't featured in our version of list, because we had hard time finding at least one worthwhile exclusive for it.

    12 Zeldas is crazy, but 4 guitar heroes is what blows my mind. They're all the same damn game. Maybe the first one, since it was a pretty big deal, but 4? What? It's like someone whose never even played games wrote the book.

    More than 600 titles from 2000 on is shameful too. Don't get me wrong. Good games were made in 2000 and on and are still being made today, but if we're limiting the number of games you need to play before you die to only 1001, then you're missing out on a ton of awesomeness if you include that many recent games. Their list almost looks like 1001 of the most popular games, rather than games you need to play before you die, which is stupid, because I expect a book of games I need to play before I die to include a lot of underrated gems.

    This reminds me of a video game art book I bought awhile ago. It was so disappointing because all of the games were new and incuded games such as Madden. :? And like this book seems to have popular games rather than games you need to play, the art book seemed to be games with "the best graphics!!" instead of games with awesome artwork, espicially when you only choose to focus on current consoles and completely ignore NES, SNES, Sega, etc. which to this day have some of the most beautiful looking artwork. I'm really starting to think that people who write and put together these "video game books" really don't even play video games themselves.

    @Elkatas But yeah, I much prefer your list. We need real gamers to create this stuff, otherwise these poor souls are going to be spending half their life playing through every freaking final fantasy, die, and end up missing out on games they should have played but didn't know about because the 1001 list has 12 freaking Zeldas.

    I'll probably respond more later but lists (including this one) should include Madden. Madden was a major influence on just about every sports game afterwards and should easily be in any list of games that people should play. Whether it's an old Genesis version or a current version - the game was one of the first (if not the first) games to put all the players on the field at the same time and made a full NFL simulation accessible to just about any player.

    As much as I really don't like Madden, I kind of agree with this.

    Although I'd probably include an early one from the 90s.

    Just from the looking at the author's list, I was honestly surprised I didn't see Madden 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, etc.

    How the heck can you even put together a list this long? I know the gaming industry's 50 years old or so now, if not older, but that number of titles seems astronomically high. If you approach the general populace you're gonna find things skewed newer, as they remember it. If you go to industry folk, then you have a much smaller sample size... as well as the skewing. It's not like video games have historians like movies do.

    Hell, I don't even think MCC's polling method would create an accurate representation for this.

    If it is Madden, it needs to be the original "John Madden Football" from 1988. NHL 96 should most probably be there too, only because it was first sports game to have "3D" style. Sports games are really though nut to crack, because they have annual updates, and by definition, latest one tends to be the "best".

    Well, the number is astronomical, but video games tend to have so many different genres that need representing. Furthermore, while video games don't have "official" historians, retro gamers kind of take care of that job. It is somewhat scary that I can actually say few sentences from all of those games that are in list we created.

    I think a problem with this list is that it is rather ambiguous why we need to play certain games. To say that someone needs to play The Sims if they haven't before I think would be silly, especially when they can just play Sims 2 or 3 instead (which i think are more fun).

    Do we need to play these games because they are fun? Or because of historical significance? Did the games start off a whole new fantastic series of game, or introduce a new genre/improved storytelling/innovative gameplay features? Were these games fantastic for their time?

    Would they still be worth playing? I'd say that comparatively, a lot of the games you've mentioned are shit now when seen side by side to more modern iterations.

    TL;DR : You need to make a series of more specific lists.

    See, I don't know about NHL 96. Why should someone play it because it was the first sports game to have a 3D style. It would need more than that to be a game that needs to played today. People would just say, "So what? All games look better than this now."

    I know this isn't true, but say for example Final Fantasy VII was the first RPG to have 3D style graphics, but everything about it sucked. The gameplay was bad. The story was lame. Then why should someone play it? It'd still be a waste of time. But in reality the gameplay really is fun and the story is good, so it should be on that list for that and for that alone.

    Games that are still played today aren't played because they did something first. They're still played today because of gameplay and stories. Anyone can still pick up Final Fantasy VII and enjoy it and get hooked on the story.

    If you had just started your post with the 2nd sentence...

    Is the list a top 1000k games? Well, that'll never work. But if you're trying to make a list of some of the seminal video games in the last 35 years, then I find interest in that list. The problem isn't what games are or are not on the list, but what the list itself is trying to achieve.

    I agree, breaking it down into catagories might be a good idea. But even then you'll have arguments about what goes where. It's an argument worth having though.

    Do you have to play all the games in the series, or just one to represent them (i.e. Mario 1, 2, 3, world, etc). I don't know how I would do this. Most popular games? games that changed the design space in some way?

    Please def. not most popular games. That's more or less what the original list was. I don't want to sound like that guy that thinks it's cool to hate everything popular, but I think we can all agree that a lot of "popular" games are crap. They should be games that have good gameplay, stories, or are just fun to play. Also underrated games, gems, or games that just didn't get the attention they deserved. Why would anyone even need a list to play the most popular games? Chances are they already have or at least know about them.

    Popular does not neccessarily mean madden (although it should be on the list once). It doesn't mean CoD (although you should play COD 4 for the story).

    If it were my list, which it isn't, it would be a list of games that say something about video games. Either because it defined a genre for most people (Super Mario Bros), or the experience was seminal (Zork, XXXX quest games, Diablo) to later games, or because most people have played the game in their youth in the US (Street Fighter II, GTA III, Angry Birds) It's a fun mental excersize, and obviously there have been games which, while personally enjoyable, may not make the list.

    But things like Might and Magic, Sonic, Half Life, Doom, World of Warcraft, etc etc etc, are all games that make up the history of video games. Would psychonauts make every list? Not mine, I've never played it. But the discussion on whether it should be there at all is one worth having.

    I never said it shouldn't have any popular games. I'm just saying that's not how the list should be built. I agreed earlier that one madden should be on there, and COD4 was my favorite, so I agree with that as well. Just don't base it off popularity. Right now I'm playing Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines, and I don't think it was ever really considered a popular game, but I can see why so many like it. The music, dialog, setting, and story all keep you hooked. The list should have games like that. The original list had 4 guitar heroes. No. 12 zeldas. No. There's no need for that, and it's pretty obvious he just made a list of a lot of popular games.

    Also, a lot of people should contribute to the list. I don't even know if I could recommend 1001 games by myself, and It's 1001 games you should play, not that you like or think others should play, so maybe Psychonauts should be on your list. It's not going to do you much good if it's a list of games you've already played.

    Finally, don't forget it's a list of games you should play, not necessarily beat or complete. There isn't a single person who is going to love every game on a list of 1001 games. So games like Psychonauts should at least be tried, and if you love it then great. If not, move on to the next game.

    Minor quibble; while HoMM III is definitely the definitive entry in the series, if you were to have two I'd pick HoMM II as the other one over HoMM I. II's a very different game, but also quite beautiful and visually distinctive in its own right, much more so than HoMM I.

    Thats why I mentioned those games. Tenchu was one of, if not, the first game to do 3d stealth well and Condemned brought first person melee to the fore. Sure there was Breakdown and Riddick before it but neither had the gritty and heaviness of Condemned. As for Call of Pripyat, its the only one that works straight off without mods and would be there one I recommend to someone wanting to try something different.

    Edit: I only saw the 1000 games list, not the one after. first sentence was directed at that though I really should've clarified that. My bad.

    Psychonauts is an odd duck - I love the game, it has a great sense of humor and was super fun. However, I can't think of anything aside from the humor that it does better than many other 3d platform games so I really couldn't put it on my final list if I were creating one.

    I think I'd have to go with breaking an undertaking like this down into categories as well. That way you could have things like "Games to Laugh at" where games like Psychonauts or Leisure Suit Larry that don't really do anything unique gameplaywise could still be highlighted. You could then do "Excellence in Graphics" to allow things like Crysis or Pilotwings which gameplay wise again aren't anything special could be listed.

    You still have a few cases of things like if you play Rollercoaster Tycoon, Theme Park really becomes unnecessary and weird ones like MK64 and Pokemon Red/Blue when most people would take their more recent versions (especially Pokemon Black & White). Also, Street Fighter 3 is an odd one for me given it's much less approachable then the rest of the series and has odd character design. Sonic Adventure is hard for me to include as well - everything Mario 64 and Rayman 2 did correct in 3d, Sonic Adventure does wrong. I think SA is a great example of a game that needs rose-colored glasses to appreciate.

    Some omissions I thought were notable.

    Lufia 2 - One of the best 16-bit RPGs and did several unique things for the time (tragic ending, first use to my knowledge of limit break-style abilities, heavy use of item-based puzzles, evolving monster allies, etc.)
    Half-Minute Hero - Fantastic game and an excellent deconstruction of the RPG genre.
    Pac-Man: Championship Edition DX - Just as good as the non-DX version which is one of the greatest games of all time.
    Siren 2 - The best game in the Siren series. Tons of creativity - for example, one of the playable characters is blind so you use his seeing eye dog as your camera. Didn't come out in the US, but it got a European release so it should count.

    I have to admit, when I saw that they chose 6 as the Ace Combat game to put on the list I just skimmed the rest of it. I get the whole "why not just play the most recent version of a series?" argument for a lot of games but would still recommend 4 or 5 over 6. Guy that made it also seems to really like racing games for some reason.

    Well, this is definetily good idea. I have now created eight categories that represented different merits game can have. These categories are:

    Blockbuster = Game is video game equivalent of Hollywood blockbuster. (Grand Theft Auto IV, )
    Art = Game has outstanding art direction. (Okami, Killer 7)
    Tech = Game is technological marvel that pushed limits of tech (Ultima VII: Black Gate, Crysis)
    Pioneer = Pioneer of its genre (Pong, Super Mario Bros)
    Inspiration = Inspired creation of other titles (4D Sports Boxing, Another World)
    Gameplay = Re-defined gameplay via new ideas or innovative user interface (Wii Sports, Dune 2)
    Storytelling = Awarded for excellence in storytelling (I Have No Mouth and I must Scream, A Mind Forever Voyaging)
    Zen = Masterpiece in simplicity and elegance (Tetris, Katamari Damacy)

    How does this sound?

    The only issue I'd have with that is that some games might straddle categories; for example, I think VtM: Bloodlines and SMAC could fall under both Art and Storytelling quite easily.

    Games are rated in all of these categories. Either it has merit or doesn't. For example Pong would have Blockbuster, Tech, Pioneer, Inspiration, Gameplay, and Zen. Blockbuster attribute would mostly come because of the sales. Pong was the shit back in the day.

    Yeah, at first I read it as them being Oscar like categories that games would be stuck into but I like the idea of using them to define why a game got into the list.

    While I believe this version is much better, it has still some clear flaws and there is obviously more than few titles missing. I'm kind of interested to hear what you would change and why?

    If you're going to include European titles, any list missing The Void is very incomplete.

    Without looking at that books list...What are the odds the author looked at a list of all time best selling games and made the list that way.

    Honestly, I can't help but think that Ace Combat 6 could be better covered by...well, the better games in the series, even if they are limited to the PS2 platform.

    4, 5, even X.
    I have to admit, when I saw that they chose 6 as the Ace Combat game to put on the list I just skimmed the rest of it. I get the whole "why not just play the most recent version of a series?" argument for a lot of games but would still recommend 4 or 5 over 6. Guy that made it also seems to really like racing games for some reason.

    6 had multiplayer. Might have had something to do with it?

    "Someone made a list, and I disagree with it." does not seem like a very strong topic for discussion.

    Gonna have to sell me on this thread.

    Well, we can easily turn into this into debate about merits and historical importance of certain video games, and that is the direction that thread has already taken. Lists actually give good fodder for the discussion, because they show how varied opinions are about the matter, and remind us about titles that we don't typically even remember.

    I personally believe, that in many ways, this is better that typical "Are video games art?" debate. Problem with those discussions is that most people partaking in debate have no general understanding of art or its aesthetic theory. While I don't claim that debating about art requires this kind of knowledge, without that kind of knowledge discussion tends to lose its focus, because nobody has defined first what art is. If you can't define and agree on what art is on its general level, debating about it merits is kind of directionless, perhaps even pointless. Without giving definition for the art, everything and anything can be art.

    In this discussion, we have at least some ground for debate, because everyone of us has knowledge about video games and their history on general level.

    Just my 2 cents.

    EDIT: Clarified my personal train of thought...

    While I believe this version is much better, it has still some clear flaws and there is obviously more than few titles missing. I'm kind of interested to hear what you would change and why?

    If you're going to include European titles, any list missing The Void is very incomplete.

    I'd also put Pathologic on there.
