    Gran Turismo influenced Oblivion by being huge, deep, and accessible.
    I see 2 of the 3.

    I agree with his CoD4 selection for the story it tells and how it's told, at least.

    No roleplaying games until Ultima 7 on #1 is pretty telling.

    Heheheh.

    He compared Grand Theft Auto 3 to The Sopranos.

    That's kind of sad.

    Hmm...
    What's the deal with that gaming = escapism thing?

    He included a football game in his top ten list.
    RPG developer that has only one RPG on the list.
    He compares GTAIII to Sopranos.

    Jesus this list is crap.

    I am actually surprised to see games from the eighties/early nineties on the list.

    Perhaps unfair but I expected most of his game favorites to be PS2/Xbox and later.

    Me too. He actually has some pretty good games on that list.

    Reading that he wants to take the iPhone version of Civilization with him to a desert island, makes me wish he'd go ahead and do just that, though.

    Well to be fair he does say that Ultima 4, 6, and 7 alternate from year to year in holding that position in his Top 10 list. But, yeah kind of sad that the designer of one of the top selling RPGs in recent years doesn't have more RPGs in his Top 10.

    I remember reading a review that compared Oblivion to Ultima VII.

    Not too surprising here.

    Sad though that there aren't more classic RPG's.

    Pretty weak list, none of those games would make my top 10.

    Just imagine what would happen to Ultima if Bethsoft bought the licence from EA... :mrgreen:

    Think Ultima IX is bad ? Think again...

    wow... so few computer games on there, so few RPGs on there...

    and wolf 3d was not the first FPS...



    and how the fuck can he say he was inspired by Ultima series which is built on dialogue and story when the games he works on have such shitty dialogue, a 5 year old could beat that with autisim.

    Seems like he wanted to make himself look as an 3xtr3m3|_y H4r|)K0rZ 0L|)3-SK0o|_ G4m3Rm4|\|. It's a bit like running down the street and screaming 'I LURV 17 YEAR OLD GAMES I'M COOL N GNARLY LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME' while waving a Dune 2 box.

    Meh.

    Many people get inspired by something but don't have abilities to do something as good or better as it.
