The Elder Scrolls game you picked was Skyrim? How about Daggerfall, which is bigger and better in every way except graphically to Skyrim? It also doesn't feature horses that can climb cliffs.
The Mass Effect game you picked was the worst one by a mile. The first one was the best and yet was nothing but a generic shooter with rpg elements and tons of sex and nudity. You also picked San Andreas rather than the game that actually set the sandbox standard, GTA III or its superior, Vice City?
Where is the Ultima series? Where is Donkey Kong? Where is the mention of Ms. Pacman's influence on female gamers within the Pacman section? How about Final Fantasy/Squaresoft in general? Where is Mega Man?! I could go on and on here about true influence within video game history.
This list... I'm not impressed at all.
"Oregon Trail" was in schools long before 1985. It was the first text-adventure computer game I ever played and I played it in 1976 at the latest. There was no monitor; everything you did on the computer came out of a dot-matrix printer. That game inspired me to write my first computer program, which was a take-off on that but took place in space. I never got to finish it, however, because we only had two computers in the whole school and getting time on one was nearly impossible!
