What games do you think have contributed most to fiction?:
Eye'm the cutest!Warcraft made the High Fantasy genre acceptable to more folks than Dn D nerds.
Endless Conflict: Every war ends in time, even supposedly this one.
pirate girl...Halo? I think you meant Doom
Noodle Implements FTW!For whose generation? =) My generation had Doom to blame for the SPEHS MEHREENS (or, ackshwally, that and Space Hulk), and the kids of todays may have discovered the wonders of cosmic marinerdom via Aliens Vs Predator and Halo =-) And at some point there will be schmucks who didn't know soljers could be in sci-fi until they played Gears of War or Bulletstorm or (gasp) they still don't know! Even though the idea is simple as giving a guy a space suit and a gun.

...The adventure games made by Sierra (______ Quest games) contribute Nerve wrecking puzzles and insanity!

Unfortunately, the only examples of that I can think of either solely influenced webcomics and new media, or suck. (Though I do have to thank whoever came up with the concept of virtual reality, without which we'd never have had The Matrix.)
That's Feo . . . He's a disgusting, mysoginistic, paedophilic asshat who moonlights as a shitty writer—Something Awful
Is this gonna lead to an Essential Video Games page like the Essential Anime page? 'Cuz I would love help in making that! I think the Mario series is one of, if not the greatest contributors to video games. Not many game can claim even half the things Mario did to the industry.
[insert quip here]There's a reason that the Running Gag of referring to Shigeru Miyamoto as God isn't so far-fetched.

"I'm going to kill them all, but not before I teach them how to speak so they can beg for mercy while I kill them slowly and painfully!"
Despite not being the first, when people think oldest video game they tend to think of Pong.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
