Pokemon? Nah... phenomenon, don't get me wrong, but it hardly influenced game design or anything. Just a mega popular JRPG, mostly because it appealed to kids (including me).

I'd say that it had a huge influence in the U.S. Maybe not on the development side of things, but when it came to how even people who had never played games at least new about Pokemon games.

I'm surprised Uncharted 2 isn't listed on here. I feel like it revolutionized story telling in games.

As much as I love Uncharted 2 it did not revolutionize storytelling in games. However, I believe UC 2 mastered the art of the set piece.

What about the original Doom.. surely that one game kick started the whole First Person genre. And the first ever Tomb Raider, which is the Granddaddy of third person games.. Uncharted, Last Of Us.. and finally, the first Gran Turismo which opened up detailed, customisable racing games with a myriad of cars.

One could argue that Doom wouldn't have happened without the success of Wolfenstein 3D.
