While I was already an "adult" when most of these came out I can see how they could greatly influence those born in the 90's. Big AC fan, also loved ME trilogy.

I agree with you on already being an "adult" when these came out. My list would have included Halo, Assassin's Creed, and Bishock Infinite. Never played Mass Effect (gasp). That's still on my list of games to play.

Yes, Mass Effect trilogy. It's awesome, pick it up asap. Also for me the games of my childhood that stood out the most were The Legend of Zelda for NES, Ghosts N' Goblins, Mike Tyson's Punchout, RC Pro Am, Mario Bros., Contra, Ninja Gaiden, Mortal Kombat 1 & 2, Madden, Tecmo Bowl, NBA Jam, Super Street Fighter II, and Metal Gear Solid.

Not an adult just a grown up child who can support his habit of video games to the fullest. Unless you have a spouse and kids, than you might be an adult instead of a grown up child.

Morrowind influenced me in the way that it shows how video games can have a great story/universe without having to show it through forced cutscenes or dumbed down gameplay.

Oh man, Digimon... Was I the only one who had no idea what to do on that game? Great list nonetheless.
