There's already something like it available. It's called Garry's Mod.

I think the introduction of the analog stick on the N64 controller was the most important thing in videogames.3D gaming was in a rut until it came up.Finally I consider the online network created by SEGA known as SEGAnet on the Dreamcast to be the builder of the console online foundation.

Level editors have never revolutionized the industry. There is a reason people are paid to make games, and the people who play games are not.

Annoucement of Sony's new Playstation 3 unit

lol, Mega Man powered up says hi! Little big planet is great, but Mega Man powered up on the PSP deserves as much prop, they pretty much do the same thing, minus the physics and the cuteness of course.

It's a great list and I really love the props to "WASD" It really was something else for me back in the day. Getting used to this new way of playing games on quake was a sign of things to come, the FPS was born, but holding the" mouse look" button sucked for me.

^^^^^^ thats a pretty big statement seeing as the game isnt out.

im not saying it WONT be true, but it's these types of sayings that when said by crazy people (not saying you are, but lets say someone who is said it) makes them believe no matter how sh*tty the final product may be, they still think it's great.

this is how things get hyped and then falter or have people who get disappointed because it didnt live up to their high expectations.

at least wait until it's out to crown LBP the greatest thing in the world please.

What you say is true many, including Sony, are already jumping to conclusions this game will be the greatest game ever.

I must admit though I know next to nothing about the game except all the hype I see for it.

They didnt include Nintendo when if it wasnt for them there probably wouldnt be any game systems around since it was all going down hill until they released the NES

Pebz3673d ago (Edited 3673d ago )

... and so they included the NES (#5) in the list for the exact reason you stated. There is no corporation listed, just specific things.

jofra013673d ago

Nintendo established online first though but not to the extent SEGA did, Nintendo's was SNES only in Japan and to download things

I forgot the name of the system and it was not technically 'downloading' but there was one which used cassettes and during Week -Ends,radio stations would air something that could be recorded and used on the system. I'm pretty sure that there was something like that once.

@harry190: The Commodore 64? Now thats was a classic (Along with the Amiga). But overall, a fairly good list. Now let me reminisce.
