Video shows the evolution of "PC games" in 151 Seconds

The staff of The Reverse Enginears - considered the "Masters of the Remix" - decided to tell the story of the evolution of PC games into a fun video of two and a half minutes. The sequence goes from nostalgic Zork, and MULE Lode Runner up Sim City and Prince of Persia (the original) to finally culminate in modern Portal, Diablo III and Crysis 2. (Crysis 2, Diablo III, Duke Nukem 3D, Lode Runner, M.U.L.E., PC, Portal, Prince Of Persia, Retro, Zork I)

while not on the same level as diablo 2, give them a damn break. Diablo 3 was still awesome.

Why is "PC Games" in quotes?

For the same reason "Seconds" is capitalized and the rest of the title isn't.

It did my heart good to see Heroes of Might and Magic 2 on there.

Why'd it keep jumping back and forth the whole time?
Would have been a lot better if it started with early games and kept moving forward.

Also needs more classics like the original sim city, or even magic carpet.

But Diablo 3 is newer. Its like if you get asked for your report card, it makes no sense to give anyone last years report card.

and all those points are debatable, Graphics could go to the witcher 2, crysis 1, crysis 2, hard reset or metro 2033. Multiplayer could go to alot of games like starcraft 2, league of legends, world of warcraft, maby counter strike, and shooting mechanics are definitively more refined in half a dozen games too. Dont know about sound though, my ears arent that fine tuned to notice.

Doesnt matter if Diablo 3 is more recent, it feels like a 4 yrs old game.

Ive played all the recent shooters that count in the competitive mp area and BF3 is defo up there in many ways.

The games that define or make a big difference should get a spot not the most recent. For eg even crysis should have been in there somewhere with the zero g level. It was definitely genre defining
