Bad list, imho.

Let's take a look at the "innovations":

Gears Of War: Cover System. While KillSwitch did it before, Uncharted does it better and Mass Effect integrates it in its deep and wide RPG core.

God of War: QTE for gory finishing moves. Often replicated , but not quite revolutionary. Excellent examples of QTE are Shenmue and Fahrenheit(aka Indigo Prophecy). On the other hand, it's frenetic gameplay was already beautifully done in Devil May Cry.

Crysis: A graphic benchmark, literally. The game itself is not that revolutionary.

I'm not saying they are the best but these are revolutionary:

GTAIII: No need to mention why.

RedFaction-Guerrilla: Revolutionary destruction. Pun intended.

MAG: 256 online players in console and command hierarchy. Quite impressive.

LittleBigPlanet: Physics-based platformer where you can made a full "mod" without coding a single line of code and it will be available for everyone else to enjoy, co-op included.

Mirror's Edge: Amazing platformer in 1st person. New concept, yet not fully developed.

Portal: Mind-blowing 1st person puzzle gameplay.

There are many more, but it's getting late.
