Eh, I really didn't get into the whole Myst thing. I grew up with LucasArts adventures, Myst was too... Static for me.

Myst is more of a puzzle game. LA for Adv games.

I forgot all about The Crossing. Is it still in development? It looks interesting on papers.
May as well add upcoming Left 4 Dead, if the AI director succeeds.

P.S: class based MP fps was first used in Team Fortress. BF series evolved to the realistic concept of classes.

Default Re: Revolutionary/Trend-setting games of the last couple of years.

loved the Lucast Arts game back then

Monkey Island
Full Throttle ><. Loved it. Replayed it soooooo many times lol..

This year..i would say probably Portals was the only game i really enjoyed..

I think HL1 did a great job of getting the mods out for the community..and CS was a hit, its crazy how things have changed from a simple mod to..to something really big now.

And yea i never got into that Myst thing either..static..images thing never did anything for me ><...not saying its a bad game, i just never gave it the chance to go back and try it.

First CnC game with the movies...wow those were good times. Loved the installation back then too. Not cheesy lame...pathetic..ones we have now /cry...i miss the old CnC installation .

Oh yeah..Crysis..

We could go on all day about how much of a revolution Portal is but I don't see it that way.

Half Life 2 gave us proper integrated physics and the g-gun. Portal, though a fantastic game, is ultimately just another attempt to invent another gun that'll have the same impact. Can't see it catching on for anything bar Episode 3 and even then it'll have its limitations.

Codename Eagle.. now there was a revolution. Trespasser. Flashpoint. XCom. Need for Speed. Day of the Tentacle. Jet Set Willy!

But post 2004 I think the only real revolution has been Wii Sports.
